It’s been a while since I wanted to start a Harry Potter aesthetics series, and I am finally starting it with the Slytherin Aesthetics!
If you are reading this post, probably Slytherin is your house of heart, and you want to embrace all this aesthetic has to offer. So, in this post, I will detail the best outfits, symbols, moods, and attitudes to help you embrace your true inner-modern Slytherin.
Although Slytherin is the house that turned out more Dark Witches and Wizards than any other in the Harry Potter series, we must agree that many interesting and good-hearted characters also belong to the home of the ambitious. Even Harry was almost sorted for Slytherin, and we can’t forget Snape.
Not sure if Slytherin is your house?
¨Harry had never told Ron an Hermione that the Sorting Hat had seriously considered putting him in Slytherin. He could remember, as though it were yesterday, the small voice that had spoken in his ear when hed placed the hat on his head one year before: You could be great, you know, its all here in your head, and Slytherin would help you on the way to greatness, no doubt about that¨Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
Reading all the books in my 30s again, I learned to respect and admire this house. I consider myself a mix of Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, and Ravenclaw, and I really wish I could use a bit more of the Slytherin cunning, focus, resourcefulness, and determination traits.
🐍 Slytherin main traits: Ambition, determination, pride, cunning, achievement-oriented, adaptability.
Severus Snape, Draco Malfoy, and his parents, Lucius and Narcisa Malfoy, and Tom Riddle are the most famous Slytherins.
They are mysterious, serious, and cold and come from abusive family backgrounds or have a sad familiar history, and this is why their lives are dominated by their shadows for so long.
Besides those, we have Voldemort followers, the Death Eaters, and the most popular are Bellatrix Lestrange and Lucius Malfoy.
