Even though Harry Potter was written over 20 years ago, the series is more popular than ever today. You all have been loving my posts about Harry Potter wallpaper and dark academia outfits, so I decided to combine them and write about Harry Potter outfit ideas.
Now, unlike most of the posts I came across in my research, these outfits aren’t going to be blatantly Harry Potter. Instead, they’ll be subtle Harry Potter outfit ideas that you can actually wear in real life.
You might even be able to use pieces from your current wardrobe to make these Harry Potter outfits come to life.
In case you don’t have all of this clothing and want to purchase some pieces, here are the stores I recommend for really affordable Harry Potter outfit pieces:
I know many people don’t like Shein, but you really can’t beat the prices. I especially recommend shopping at Shein for academic skirts, sweater vests, and boots, especially combat boots or lace up boots.
‘Alternatively, you can search dark academia and find a lot of super cute Harry Potter outfit ideas and pieces. They even have all of the main house colors!
H&M is another great shop for basics. As you browse through the Harry Potter outfit ideas below, you’ll notice that you need a lot of basic pieces.
