Fashion Inspired by Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part I


Fashion from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1

A few weeks ago, the seventh installment of the Harry Potter series, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1, hit movie theaters around the world. The movie, based on the book, features the exploits of wizard friends Harry Potter, Ron Weasley, and Hermione Granger. My last post dealt with Hermione Granger’s practical style, but there are so many other characters in the film with distinct styles worth featuring.

In this post, I’ll show you how to emulate the styles of Ginny Weasley, Luna Lovegood, Bellatrix Lestrange, Fleur Delacour, Dolores Umbridge, and, of course, Harry Potter. Whether you’re planning your costume for the final midnight premiere this summer (sob!) or just want to get some new fashion ideas, these outfits will add a bit of magic to your day.

1. Ginny Weasley

Ginny Weasley, Ron’s younger sister and Harry Potter’s girlfriend, is a strong, fearless redhead who is a loyal friend to all. Ginny’s style is classic – she favors well-cut silhouettes in solid colors and always completes her look with a sleek, straight hairstyle. I particularly like the knotted half-updo she sported on the day of Bill and Fleur’s wedding, shown above. She paired this hairstyle with a timeless cocktail dress that had a sheer overlay and embellished trim.

To recreate Ginny’s wedding look, I started with an LBD with a sheer top just like Ginny’s. Keep the outfit simple and classic by choosing accessories in the same color family that have interesting details, like the diamond-patterned tights and lace flats. Sparkly jewelry adds interest, and a ruffled barrette looks great tucked into a chignon or used to clip hair to the side like Ginny does in the third photo.

2. Luna Lovegood

Luna, daughter of the editor of the newspaper, The Quibbler, may have her head in the clouds, but is always a faithful friend no matter what. Luna has a very bohemian, artsy style influenced partly by her father’s hippie look. She wears bright colors like yellow and pink throughout most of the movie, contrasting with its otherwise dark and gloomy palette. Even though it’s not from this particular movie, I love her Christmas ball look (above right) and think it portrays her curious spirit so well that I included it.

For a look like Luna’s, start with a floral-embroidered top tucked into a comfy corduroy skirt and over-the-knee socks. Add whimsy with a peacock feather hair clip and animal-influenced jewelry that reflects Luna’s love of nature. Quirky red-laced boots and a bright yellow coat add pops of color.

3. Bellatrix Lestrange

Death Eater Bellatrix is one of bad-guy Voldemort’s most trusted followers. The pale, dark-haired, fanatical witch almost always wears black with pops of deep purple and crimson. Bellatrix’s staple pieces are black maxi-skirts and lace-up boots.

If you’d like to become a Death Eater yourself (or just dress like one), pair a lace maxi-skirt and boots with a black tank, purple fabric belt, and long ebony coat. Ghoulish accessories like a skull barrette and red-eyed snake ring are reminiscent of the Dark Mark, Voldemort’s symbol. Dark red lipstick adds a final deathly touch.

4. Fleur Delacour

Fleur Delacour is a French witch from Beauxbatons Academy of Magic who first came to Hogwarts during Book 4 to compete in the Triwizard Tournament. The beautiful, slightly haughty Fleur marries Ron’s brother Bill in this film, wearing a ruffled wedding dress with a lace phoenix design. (Her gown made headlines when critics branded it a knock off of Alexander McQueen’s famous peacock dress.) In all the films she appears in, Fleur is almost always depicted wearing various shades of blue.

To get Fleur’s look, try a light blue dress with a navy blue velvet blazer and military jacket similar to the one Fleur wears when disguised as Harry (above right). Add dainty accessories like chandelier earrings, lace tights, and Victorian-inspired boots. Finally, a navy blue fedora is also much more wearable than Fleur’s powder blue one, and looks just as chic.

5. Dolores Umbridge

Don’t let her love of china, cats, and all things pink fool you – Dolores Umbridge is one of the series’ most vicious villains. She works at the Ministry of Magic and was both a professor and Headmistress at Hogwarts, much to the dismay of the students.

When creating Dolores’ look, I stuck to a palette of pinks and found a dress to reflect her love of tweed. A classic cardigan, beaded earrings, and teacup necklace keep the look ironically proper. To add a bit of fun and make such a refined ensemble wearable for college, finish off with floral tights, a baby pink infinity scarf, and gray leather heels.

…and Harry Potter!

Harry’s look has changed over the years as he’s gotten older and begun to experience the stresses of both adulthood and battling Voldemort full-time. The intelligent wizard bravely deals with the loss of loved ones around him as he fights to defeat evil and protect his cherished friends.

In The Deathly Hallows, Harry sports many gray and blue items, as well as classic layers and well-cut basics. To emulate his look, wear a striped tee with a menswear-inspired vest and chunky grandpa cardigan. Brown pants tucked into gray lace-up boots are comfy enough for any adventure, and the gold ring reminds me of the golden snitch Dumbledore left Harry in his will. Of course, you can’t forget Harry’s iconic wire-rimmed glasses as the finishing touch!

    I kind of wish you had done Hermione instead of Bellatrix or Umbridge, but otherwise I love everything here!! great job, I think Ginny’s dress is my favorite.

    Just FYI, The Quibbler isn’t the Hogwarts paper; it’s more like a paper that publishes conspiracy theories and other really eccentric things that probably aren’t true or don’t exist. Like the National Enquirer but more benign.

    Similarly, Luna isn’t the editor; her father is.

    December 10th, 2010 at 4:45 pm

    Ahh, anon I noticed that too! The Quibbler’s a tabloid run by her father.

    I am in love with all of Luna’s pieces. They are so quirky and unique just like the character.

    I also really like all the items you picked out for Harry! I would wear all of them– except for the glasses haha

    Good job, Megan!

    I cannot get enough of Harry Potter lately, so I’m really happy you wrote this article! And thank you for including some villains as well, because, despite being such horrible people, they are really intriguing characters.

    Hey, i would love it if you could do an outfit inspired by ron. i know its kind of weird but i mean you did harry so why not ron. Also i know you already did hermione in another post but it would be cool if maybe you did a post of outfits inspired by emma watson. I love her style and would really love some help in the inspirational department. Thanks. xoxox

    Also I absolutely adore Bellatrix – she’s one of the most intriguing characters – so thank you for including her!

    Luna’s second outfit is my fave…I love everything about it, but I’m especially digging the boots w/ red laces…and that price ($70) can’t be beat!

    I LOVE this site, its my homepage and visit it almost obsessively, and although I never actually comment on any of the posts, I feel like I MUST for this– this is PERFECT. Best post ever :)

    I am so glad to see a bit on Luna’s style! I have to admit that I don’t think the silhouettes are whimsical enough– I haven’t seen the movie yet, but I know when I read the books I definitely didn’t see her in such tailored/classically shaped pieces. Love the colors though!

    I love this! Thank you!
    PS. I’d love someone to do Ginny’s day-to-day style.. Thanks :)

    Ginny and Fleur are my absolute favorites. All the looks from the wedding scenes were stunning: Hermione’s red dress was divine and Ginny’s was really chic. Also shall we talk about Fleur’s wedding gown? Fabulous. Seriously I need something like this when I’ll tie the knot.
    I also admire Luna’s look even though I would never be able to show off such an unique style.

    December 11th, 2010 at 10:05 am

    The Umbridge outfit is PERFECT.

  23. 23
    December 11th, 2010 at 11:45 am

    Love the post! All the outfits were spot on (especially Umbridge’s and Luna’s) and I really enjoyed seeing villans included as well. I’d love to see a article analyzing Ron and Harry’s styles in the film, like the one done for Hermoine which was brilliant.

  24. 24
    December 11th, 2010 at 3:51 pm

    I think that the Luna and Umbridge outfits were perfect, but I think that the Ginny outfit was lacking.

  25. 25
    December 11th, 2010 at 4:29 pm

    I was so excited to see this post, especially after the amazing Hermione one!

    I am in love with the Ginny outfit. The dress is so cute. The hair clip, earrings, and the tights are gorgeous.

    Though I wouldn’t wear Luna’s outfit, it was spot on.

    Bellatrix’s outfit was a little too costume-y for me.

    I am in love with Fleur’s outfit. The hat is the cherry on top–its perfect. I am in love with every bit of this outfit.

    The Dolores-inspired outfit was spot on as well. I am super girly so that outfit was definitely up my alley.

    I thought you did a good job with the Harry-inspired outfit too.

    December 11th, 2010 at 4:41 pm

    Love the Midnight Dress from Modcloth! Definitely one of my favourites this season… heading over there to order it right now… :)

  27. 27
    December 11th, 2010 at 4:48 pm

    I love you for this!
    And especially because you actually used Harry as an inspiration – that outfit definitely appeals to me the most. Overall, I feel like we forget to look at men for fashion inspiration.

    As for other inspirational characters: While reading the books, I always imagined Fred, George and Nymphadora Tonks to dress really rocker-y and cool.

  28. 28
    December 11th, 2010 at 5:28 pm

    I love this! Luna’s is spot on, but Bella’s is a little to costumey for my taste (wore something like this when I saw the movie though).

    December 11th, 2010 at 11:58 pm

    You did a really good job with this!

    I would really like to see fashion inspired outfits from “Burlesque” and possibly from Bratz (any kind). Sure they’re dolls, but their fashion style is mad! I’m a totally fan! And maybe something from Shrek!

    December 12th, 2010 at 6:29 pm

    LUNA! Love the outfits by her, my favourite character! LOVE the Fleur and Harry one too!

    December 13th, 2010 at 6:31 pm

    I love Harry’s, it’s awesome the way it’s still his style but with clothes that would work on girls :)

    Please do one wih Ron as an inspiration, he feels left out xD His style is pretty cool and also, it would be so great to get ideas on where to buy something similar to Weasley jumpers xD

    These looks are brilliant and really remind me of the characters. This post is excellent. I love it, keep it up! (Maybe you could do a post after the last movie comes out?)

    Hello there! Awesome article, but I feel that you should know that someone has copied your article and is taking credit for it.

    Her name is Chriselle Lim, and she has just made a Harry Potter fashion video using quite a few of your sentences right down to every last word. Not sure if you find this a big deal, but I’ll link the video, anyway.

  38. 38
    August 9th, 2011 at 4:56 am

    Ah =( I truly hope you look at the comment above because it is right. There is no credit to your article whatsoever either. This is a wonderful piece in honor of HP and I hate to see someone else claim your ideas as her own.

    August 9th, 2011 at 12:09 pm

    Natalie & Rin – Thank you! We are looking in to this – it’s definitely copyright infringement and isn’t OK with us since we weren’t credited in any way and they never asked our permission. Thanks again for the tip.

  40. 40
    August 9th, 2011 at 2:35 pm

    I absolutely loved this article, but there’s someone who’s stealing your work. I’m pretty sure you wanna check that video. The girl is called Chriselle Lim.

  41. 41
    August 9th, 2011 at 3:48 pm

    I second Brenda’s comment. Chriselle stole some of the things you wrote, almost word for word. It’s really pathetic. And she’s been deleting comments that people have made calling her out on it, because she doesn’t wanna get caught. I wish there was something we could do.

  42. 42
    August 9th, 2011 at 4:11 pm

    Just to update you guys, we’ve filed a copyright infringement claim with Youtube, so we’re hoping they’ll respond soon and either take down the video or at least give us a credit. Thank you guys for all your support – it means a lot to us to see our readers sticking up for us!

  43. 43
    August 10th, 2011 at 3:58 am

    I feel like you guys are attacking Chriselle Lim. She made a mistake and apologized for it, but many of you and die hard Potter fans keep taking shots at her. What she did was wrong, but bullying is wrong too.

  44. 44
    August 10th, 2011 at 5:32 pm

    In response to Alec, it’s hardly bullying. In any other circumstances, business world to academia, she would have lost her job and future in the profession. It is something we all learn, stealing intellectual property is not cool even if you’re doing it behind a camera/screen. Saying you “forgot” does not sweep the problem under the rug. The fact that she deleted comments showed that she’s not sorry and she didn’t forget.

  45. 45
    August 11th, 2011 at 12:19 am

    Hey guys, thank you for supporting my writing! I really appreciate it and am glad you all agree that plagiarism is never okay.

    August 12th, 2011 at 3:06 pm

    To Maddy, I understand trust me. I wanted to be a journalist for a while and I know the trouble’s of plagiarism. But she owned up, she said sorry and posted the link to this site. But, people are still “dogging” her. Saying rude things and commenting on things that aren’t related to what happened. Calling her dumb,ugly,”I hated your make up anyways” etc How is that right, how is that not bullying? If she plagiarized for a job. Yes,she might have been fired or put on probation. But her boss wouldn’t be saying derogatory things. It seems like over night she went from a kind hearted make up artist. To a cold blooded scam hound. See my disposition?

    Love Luna’s outfit! It actually reminds me of the way my best friend dresses, just not quite so colorful. Although if you could update it the would be great, Hermione’s needs to be in there! Love Luna’s!
