A Harry Potter Fan’s Guide to the Slytherin Aesthetic

The popularity of the Harry Potter series gave rise to a generation of children, now adult Millennials, sorting themselves into Harry Potter houses: Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff, and Slytherin.

Arguably the most opulent of these Harry Potter Hogwarts school aesthetics was the Slytherin aesthetic, a style modeled after the Slytherin house.

The Slytherin Aesthetic

The Slytherin aesthetic was the first to bring 19th-century boarding school visuals back to the mainstream parallel to Victorian literature communities.

Building Blocks of the Slytherin Aesthetic

An outfit isn’t up for the Slytherin aesthetic if it doesn’t sport the right house colors. The Slytherin house’s aesthetic calls for green and silver, its official house colors.

Well-Fitting Coats and Buttoned Shirts

The Slytherin aesthetic favors classic coat styles that use fabrics such as wool and tweed.

Other suitable fabrics would be mohair, a fuzzy fabric spun from the fleece of the Angora goat, as well as faux fur and vintage fur.

The most basic button-up shirt that would suit the Slytherin aesthetic is a well-fitting dress shirt or a polo shirt if it’s particularly hot out.
