Another September first has come and gone without me boarding the Hogwarts Express. A girl can dream though, and with this outfit I can make believe I actually am on my way to the magical halls of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry along with Harry Potter and his classmates.
The black pleated skirt and tights are a more traditional nod towards the Hogwarts uniforms while the cropped grey sweatshirt and combat boots give the ensemble a little edge without straying too far the concept. I kept the clothes simple and understated so that the accessories could really shine through. The hair pins and wallet both reference Platform 9 3/4, the first stop for all young witches and wizards before heading off to learn the magical arts. The ring is an homage to the castle itself and the necklace represents all four Hogwarts houses and their house points. I finished the outfit off with a Head Girl badge in Slytherin green, but feel free to use whatever your preferred house color is – not prejudice here.
