Growing up with Harry Potter was a pretty magical thing. The days were full of long-awaited Hogwarts letters, midnight book releases, and waiting for the next films to come out. Being a Harry Potter fan back then meant dressing up before you went to Barnes & Noble or Borders to pick up your book, then staying up all night to read it, of course. You might have also dressed up to see the movies — it's totally fine, we were all in it together.
But dressing up meant long cloaks and hats, round glasses and drawn on lightning bolt scars. That was pretty much the extent of it, unless you really went all out. Etsy definitely wasn't a thing yet, so all of the costumes and unique attire it gives us today just wasn't an option.
But that's OK, because now, we have a limitless supply of unique Harry Potter shirts. New ways to dress up, new ways to show (and wear) our fandoms proudly. All those kids who dressed up for the films grew up to design amazing Harry Potter apparel for the rest of us, and Etsy is bursting with shirts, pants, and even dog shirts that every Muggle will be dying for.
Here are 20 pieces of Harry Potter apparel you never knew you needed in your life.
It's like Disney, but it's Hogwarts. I repeat, DISNEY BUT HOGWARTS. I need this, you need this, we all pretty much need this.
