Book-Inspired Outfits: Hogwarts Edition

Thursday, August 11, 2011

The first time I did this, I focused on some of the women in the Classics genre. I got good feedback from that, so I wanted to do another one - focusing on some YA characters. For the third one, I thought it'd be fun to focus on the four houses at Hogwarts. Gryffindor, Slytherin, Ravenclaw, and Hufflepuff. Again, these are just inspired outfits - mostly from their colors, and not necessarily from the actual characters in the books.


Scarlet and Gold
bravery, courage, and chivalry
gryffindor inspired outfits

Green and Silver
ambitious, cunning, resourceful, manipulative

slytherin inspired

Blue and Bronze
intelligence, knowledge, and wit <- my favorite house for some reason!

ravenclaw inspired

Yellow and Black
patience, loyalty, hard work, friendships
hufflepuff inspired


Again, these are just inspired outfits. You can always mix it up, change it up, and do it differently according to your own personality and taste. I for one chose these outfits mainly because I personally would wear it.
Now I have to admit I had the most difficult time with Ravenclaw. For some reason, I couldn't get a "blue and bronze vision." Maybe because I don't feel like they really match. Ha.
Anyway, I encourage (and challenge!) you to do house-inspired outfits too. Either link up to your actual Polyvore account or do a separate post on your own blog. Either way, have fun!


  1. These are so fun! For some reason I thought Ravenclaw was blue and silver, bronze does make it more difficult. I love what you came up with though!

  2. Oooh! :D I love this idea! If curious, where did you find that shiny silver and green tank top for the one Slytherin outfit? I would love that shirt, it's so pretty! :D

    Thanks for sharing!

  3. These are so good! I really like the Gryffindor and Hufflepuff ones!

  4. This is awesome! I really like the Gryffindor and Slytherin outfits.

  5. Awesome! I would love to wear that first outfit from RAVENCLAW. And I love the first outfit from SLYTHERIN! :) I love flats/ballerina's. :)

  6. These are ALL awesome! I agree about Raven claw. I like the clothes but I'm not sure about the colors.

    I'd love the Slytherin clothes in a Ravenclaw palette, if you know what I mean. ;-)

  8. I love this post :) What a great idea!

  9. Ah! Now I just want to go shopping!

  10. Melissa - I actually always thought Ravenclaw was blue and silver as well, but apparently not.

    Jessica, juju - Thank you!

    Ambur - I do love that top too!! I don't know where it's from though exactly :/ I would say if you're from the US, Forever21 should have similar tops :)

    May - Thank you! I do like the yellow/black combo as well.

    Kara - Thanks! :) My favorite is the Gyrffindor one!

    audrey - oh I know what you mean!! Love<3

    Nina - I love flats as well!! Especially ballet ones :) They are just so cute and can be casual and formal at the same time.

    Alexis - THank you, and yeah, the colors are just soooo off.

    E - Haha. Yes. I don't really like the "bronze" color though to be honest. I'm more of a silver kind of girl!

    Abbie - Thanks for reading :)

    Sarah Joyce - I KNOW WHAT YOU MEAN.
