Anyone who's close to me knows that I have quite a thing (fashionably, emotionally, sexually, etc) for Lisbeth Salander. Particularly Noomi Rapace, but after seeing the American version this weekend it is clear to me that the character holds a lot of the charm. It's no secret that I tend to dress a bit darker and these movies provide endless fashion inspiration for me. It can be quite challenging to be plus size and dress fashionably, but chic, non-costume-y goth clothing seems like the unattainable to most. However, with amazing inspiration and dedicated searching, it's definitely not impossible. Here are some looks I pulled together to help you get Lisbeth's style in plus sizes. Please note: a huge part of her style is her shaved head and piercings. It is challenging to get the full affect without having a head to toe edge-y style, but these outfits should pull you farther and farther into the dark side.

Key Elements:
Combat Boots . Black Tight Jeans . Leather Jacket . Layering . Distressed Sleeveless Tee . Silver Rings . Black Leather Bag

  1. HAHA, I love the "suck my richard" shirt - quite classic.
    I believe your polyvore creations are true to Lisbeth Salander's style. Love it.

  2. I love Lisbeth in a sexual way too. I devoured the books and have only watched the first Swedish film because for whatever reason they're a bitch to get in the UK. When I first heard about the Hollywood remake I uttered the only Swedish swear word I know - which is way too rude to repeat here - but I'm coming around to the idea. I love Lisbeth's style, and want to dress a bit like her.

  3. Only about 3 months ago, I'm behind the curve as always, I watched the original films and absolutely fell in love with the series and the character of Lisbeth Salander. I saw the U.S adaption recently as well and was pleasantly surprised that I didn't hate it, I quite liked it actually but I still prefer the original movie and original Lisbeth Salander. The outfits you picked are perfect, Lisbeth is such a badass character and I could picture her in any one of these outfits. I know exactly what you mean by the challenge to be plus sized and like the darker side of life, it doesn't help that I'm such a big dork so I don't really pull it off. I feel like in general, it gets harder and harder to be more unique because almost everything (thank the goats for the internet) has been taken over by corporations. I love the "Suck my Richard" t-shirt. Thanks for posting, this is a great post.

  5. Gazel - isn't it awesome!? Thanks so much!

    Leah - Haha...glad I'm in good company. I felt the same way, but Mara Rooney did an amazing job and was almost a different character.

    Honeysuckelle - There are parts I like better about both, for sure. Yes, but thank goodness both goth and oversized fashions are in right now! Hahaha...thanks as always, dear!

    Claire - Hahaha...UNF UNF! <3 them both in their own way.

  7. These outfits are great! I definitely agree that it's a challenge to find dark & edgy plus size clothing (even more so as a guy who wears skirts & dresses), but I think that makes it all the more special when I do find great garments. I've been under a very comfortable rock, so I don't really know anything about The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, though I plan to check it out now thanks to this post!

  8. Natalie - So glad you like! <3

    MSpookshow - TOTALLY. I can't imagine the added challenge, but love that you fight through it to do you! You totally should watch the Swedish version (out on DVD or Netflix instant now) first...there's actually 3 of them out there. XO Thanks!
