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 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.

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


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.
