Tips For Lena's Style From Beautiful Creatures!

When I saw beautiful creatures, I loved Lena’s mysterious slightly gothic style! If you want to recreate it here are a few things I noticed about her style:

-She always wears a necklace in the film, and in the book she wears a necklace full of random charms that mean a lot to her. You could recreate this by finding a few necklaces that you really like or by creating your own, with loads of charms that represent you.

-The colour scheme of her wardrobe is a mix between dark colours and a few light pieces. In each outfit she always has a mix of light and dark – maybe showing her character in the film? In one scene she was wearing a black maxi dress/skirt with a white mesh jumper so her wardrobe contrasts quite a lot. To do this you could make sure you have a balance of light and dark items in your wardrobe.

-Her outfits are ‘flowy’. All the materials her clothes are made out of are never too fitted they always flow yet still have a nice shape to them. Make sure when you buy your clothes they fit well but are not tight.

-She layers up her clothes, using jackets, jumpers (like the mesh one mentioned before) and other things. This makes your outfit more interesting if you mix different styles and patterns. You could do this in the same way with loose fitting jumpers and oversized jackets.

Personally, I love Lena's style and she manages to keep everything looking casual yet dressed up at the same time!
