Ravenclaw aesthetics are known for its blue colors and for representing the wit and the wise, and is definitely, the Hogwarts house that speaks louder with my heart and soul. I grew up reading the Harry Potter Books (from 13 to 20 years old) and I can’t express in words how meaningful this series is in my life and personal development.
Through the experience of emerging in the fantastic universe of the 7 books during 7 years of my life, I have always considered myself a Gryffindor with a ton of Hufflepuff traits.
But since the aesthetic trend became a thing, the Ravenclaw aesthetics immediately turned on a warm and pleased alarm inside my spirit.
I love how aesthetics possesses this power of enabling us to identify, true simple visual storytelling, the things we truly love. I talk a lot about this n my What is Aesthetics? List of Aesthetics article. So today, after reading a lot about Ravenclaw traits, I know I am totally a Claw!

Popular Ravenclaw Characters
Luna Lovegood: Luna is one of the most important characters in the books. I love that she is stereotyped as an innocent ¨loony¨ dreamer, but even so, she is not in Hufflepuff. That’s because, in my perspective, her brains, intelligence, and intuition are above average, just like a true Ravenclaws mind.
She always manages to keep calm in challenging situations, she is also able to observe others and know how they are feeling.
She is a perceiver, empath, and intuitive person, who manages to make quick connections in her mind and unapologetically lives free in her own creative mental world.
Luna operates in a different, authentic wavelength than the majority, and that’s what makes her so special and unique.
She is a representation that being smart is not just about learning textbooks or doing maths but is the ability to use your brain in creative manners. Luna is the most brilliant character in the series, in my opinion! Yes, more than Hermione!

Some aesthetic outfits to the modern Ravenclaw. The Ravenclaw style contains that vintage preppy mood in common with all Hogwarts houses, but here the scholar aspect mixes with some cool authenticity and creativity.
Black and blue blouses with short skirts are a cool yet nerdy-formal combination that suits well the Ravenclaw identity for a casual outfit.
Basic Jeans and plaid pants will evoke that effortlessly cool yet smart Claw permanent mood.
Sweaters sweatshirts and cardigans
Ravenclaw is a house that is also known for evoking the coziest vibes, so obviously, a cozy sweater or grandma cardigan also suits this house style.
Making outfits and clothing combinations that match the house vibes is a nice way to assume the aesthetic power into your own life and guide you toward the path of becoming who you really want to be. But to truly emerge in the fantasy, there is probably nothing quite like wearing a costume. Below are some costume ideas to embrace Hogwart’s fantastic lifestyle.
The Classic Hogwarts uniform, when it comes to Ravenclaw, comes with something cool/creative as an extra. It might be a sneaker from a cool brand, such as Vans or Converse, or colored hair.

When I write these aesthetic guides, I do my best to recommend clothing and outfits that are modern and wearable every day without looking like a costume.
