Outfit of the Day: Hogwarts Dresses

Share This Post

For our next outfit of the day, we continue to visit our wardrobe from London.  Next up are our Hogwarts dresses from Hot Topic.  Get yours here.


These dresses are super comfortable.  You just throw it on with your favorite boots, and you are good to go.  I love the detail of Hogwarts castle on the skirt as well as the Peter Pan collar with embroidered details.

The dresses are available all the way up to 5 plus size, which is fantastic!  I’m wearing a size 3, which is an 18/20 equivalent.  Scout is wearing a medium.


As always with Hot Topics new dresses, they have the junior’s line up to 2XL and in addition they have plus sizes up to size 5.  The plus size 2 will be a little bigger than the junior’s 2XL, FYI.

We are also showing off our new wand holsters from Etsy.

I love how Hot Topic has included the plus sizes right on the website with the junior’s sizes.  This makes shopping much easier for me since I now have to buy two of everything.  We used to have to order one dress from Hot Topic and hope that Torrid carried the same style.  If they did, then order it from Torrid.  The Torrid collections always took months longer to be available as well, which was very frustrating.  Thanks for streamlining the fashion choices, Hot Topic!

We also got the Deathly Hallows coats, which I am modeling in this picture, and Scout got her new cloak.  Both available at Hot Topic as well.  Get them here.


The cloak is super cute, and Scout has taken to wearing it everywhere.  The Deathly Hallows coats are super comfy, with a little spandex in the fabric for stretch.  Wand pockets included, natch.  Our only complaint about this coat is it is super lightweight.  It is really more of a jacket weight than a coat weight, so keep that in mind when deciding to purchase.


Like the dresses, the coats are available all the way up to size 5.  I am wearing a size 3 in this coat as well.  Scout has on a small/medium cloak.  The cloaks go up to Large/XLarge, but they are roomy as a cloak should be.


Next up, it will be time to start talking cosplay for WonderCon, which is less than a month away!

Happy shopping!

Love, Kim and Scout
