Calling all wizards! This easy DIY Hermione Granger Halloween costume for women is specially curated so that the products I recommend from Hermione Granger’s Hogwarts outfit can be re-worn in real life to give you the most bang for your buck.

(Also, real clothes look and feel so much better than cheap, standard Halloween Hermione Granger costumes based on the Harry Potter book series.)

The most well-known Hermione Granger outfit is her Gryffindor house uniform at Hogwarts. Luckily, it consists of mostly very standard women’s wardrobe pieces you can either pull from your closet or purchase to put into your closet and wear all over again, perhaps even as a Book Week costume for a teacher.

In fact, last year, I did exactly this! I pulled all the above-pictured items directly from my closet, then chose also to purchase a Hogwarts wizard robe to add on top for extra warmth at an outdoor Halloween party. Like me, you can wear this costume for Halloween, a visit to a Harry Potter exhibit, and beyond!

Hermione Granger Halloween Costume for Women

How do I make a Hermione Granger costume?

You can make a Hermione Granger costume that represents her Hogwarts wizard uniform by wearing a black knee-length skirt, white button-down blouse, grey cardigan or sweater, Gryffindor house scarf or tie, and a wizard’s wand. You may also choose to wear a black robe on top.

Black Skirt

The first “must-have” piece of this easy DIY Hermione Granger Halloween costume for women is a black skirt. I think either grey or black would work, like the one above, which looks so flattering.

When I wore my Hermione Granger skirt, I wore a wool blend sidewalk skirt from J.Crew Factory, which is a staple in my closet. I have it in several colors! It’s so comfortable with its elastic waistband and a modest length for business casual wear after you wear your Hermione Granger costume.


Next, you will need a standard white button-down blouse for your Hermione costume. If you don’t already have one, you can pick up this staple wardrobe piece from the Amazon Essentials line.

Grey Cardigan Sweater or Vest

Over the blouse, you should wear a grey cardigan sweater or vest with your Hermione costume. I especially love the above cardigan sweater from Amazon, which I personally own, as it’s both a bit more stylish than a traditional cardigan and a nice quality, with a bit of a silky feel. The brown buttons also give it that academic feel.

(I sized up since it’s on the shorter side, and I felt that was the right decision for my DIY Hermione Granger costume.)

Alternatively, the above Amazon vest is also affordable and very wearable.

Gryffindor Scarf

Now, it’s time to accessorize! This easy DIY Hermione Granger Halloween costume for women wouldn’t be complete without some burgundy and yellow Gryffindor house colors. You can wear a scarf or a tie, but I recommend a scarf because it’s easier to re-wear as a woman after you wear your Hermione costume.

Personally, I wore one I already had in my closet from a Harry Potter festival, but the above Gryffindor scarf is Amazon’s Choice.

Wizard Wand

If you want to have fun with some optional accessories in your easy Hermione Granger costume, I recommend carrying a wizard wand. The one linked here is, in fact, a replica of Hermione’s wand.

Or, you can make your own DIY Harry Potter wands.

Harry Potter Book

Lastly, since this is a book blog, I always recommend that readers carry the corresponding book with their literary character costumes.
