Secret Style Icon: Luna Lovegood

I know, I know- you were expecting this. EVERYONE wants to be quirky and weird and cool. But NO, that’s not all! She’s so much more than that! Her clothes aren’t just randomly strung together to look as unflattering as humanly possible: they are exactly like her.

A boy, maybe 13 years old, emailed me the other day. He said he admired me for being the same person inside and out. That seemed like such a profound way of saying it to me that I began seriously considering this phenomenon. I’m not sure if he was absolutely correct (very sweet, though!) but that is what I am striving for, so if you read this, thank you.

Luna Lovegood is the same inside and out. She is dreamy and colorful but still wholesome and earthy. Her clothes aren’t obnoxious or random, but just rather unusual. The unusual part is usually what people see first, but if you look past that, Movie Luna always looks like her voice and personality. (All photo sources unknown, originally found on Google Images)

Luna still falls into the gloomy moodboard of the films while retaining her eccentric and colorful style.

Probably my favorite. The pants and hair are wonderful.

From the waist down, I’m reminded of Marlena from self-constructed-freak.blogspot.com. This is my least favorite outfit, though, because the two styles don’t mix well and the stylist probably wanted most of the attention on the magazine and glasses. BUT OH GAD HAIR. The top half, with the hair and the blazer and bag, seems more like her, and perhaps the high-tops. No idea where the skirt and tights come into the equation, but I think you get the idea.

Ah, perfect. Classic Luna. Just incredible. Mini Boden?

Now, some Luna-inspired outfits… for some reason a few are sideways or upside down. Damn it, WordPress.
OUTFIT #1:

Wearing thrifted blouse, Forever 21 floral overalls, Doc Marten boots.

OUTFIT #2:

Wearing Gap skirt (ew but it’s cool), thrifted shirt, sneakers that are made of hand-me-down whimsy. This picture is super unflattering. Whatever. Also, the lighting.

OUTFIT #3:

Wearing DIY hat, tutu from an old school play, Kate Spade shoes, H&M dress.

OUTFIT #4:

Wearing thrift store shirt, Ella Moss shirt-dress, Orla Keily skirt underneath, black Doc Marten boots (not pictured).

  1. I love Luna SO SO SO much!!! When I first read the books, I felt kind of possessive over her, like I understood her more than anyone else, but then the movies came along and OH MY GOD EVANNA LYNCH IS ACTUALLY LUNA LOVEGOOD. In interviews, she just IS Luna! She’s not even acting at all!!!! And I totally agree with what you are saying about the clothes reflecting her inner self. That’s why I think Jany Tamime is such a good designer; she really does this with so many of the characters. Love the post!!

    Love,
    Gwen

  2. hiya! that’s my goal: to look EXACTLY like the way i am inside. i’ve been told that i do, but i know i’m not completely there YET. i wish that everyone could do that. be open. honest.

    sorry if i used wrong words (i’m not English) :D hope you got the point. ps. and i love luna’s style too.

  3. OH my goodness. I officially am obsessed with this blog.
    First, you have awesome style. Then you blog about Luna Lovegood? Life doesn’t get better.
    Luna truly is herself. She doesn’t sugar coat, or try to hide any aspect of herself, and for that reason, she is able to be fiercely independent and brave. I admire her so much.

  4. Luna Lovegood is the person [well… character] I look up to the most! yay I enjoy wearing quirky outfits and you just gave me some GREAT ideas! thank you! and keep an eye out for nargles!

Whenever I get a comment, I become as happy as a lark blowing bubbles in the dark.
