Naturally, this typically necessitates a visit to Diagon Alley for all the essentials before the start of term. However, you don’t have to head to Madam Malkin’s to get your Hogwarts uniform this year. I’ll show you how to put together your uniform using items you probably already have in your closet! You’ll be ready for the new school year in no time!

September 1 never fails to remind me of these sage words from one of the most brilliant wizards to ever wield a wand:
