Oh, so you call yourself a real Harry Potter fan. I see. Well, if that bold statement rings true, you’ll be 100% down with this fall trend. Color me obsessed, but one of my favorite things to do in life is to find Harry Potter resemblances where they should not exist, especially when it relates to fashion. Gucci’s F/W18 collection had me completely shook as model after model strongly resembled a character from the Harry Potter films. Ever since I’ve kept an eye peeled for the next Harry Potter-inspired fashion moment and I have finally found it.
This fall, get ready for a trend only true Harry Potter fans would have picked up (so yes, I think I’m a true Harry Potter fan). The trend I speak of is one I have named “Hogwarts Pride”. The trend is more of an overall aesthetic speaking to the ensembles typically worn whenever school spirit was necessary. Be it a Quidditch game, the Triwizard Tournament, or a gathering of Dumbledore’s Army, there was a specific style aesthetic ever-so-present during these times. I’d like to think designers took note from the iconic films, but I can’t say for sure. Either way, the resemblance to the traditional Hogwarts school garb seen on the runway this season was next-level identical and I can’t wait to show you.
Below, take a look at a few stills from the films that perfectly capture what I’m talking about, including the F/W runway imagery to go with it. All those first years bundled up in beanies, scarves, and sweatshirts clad in their houses colors, school sweatshirts, varsity jumpers, tracksuits for the team members, and so much more is in store for you ahead.
