As mentioned in my previous post (, scarves are a great accessory that can cover you up on your more modest days. One scarf that does such a trick is this Mondrian piece from the Fall 2013 Zazou collection (

The red and burnt orange colors can offer the toastiest touch to any cold day.

Though the best selling novels and blockbuster films were called “Harry Potter,” we at Zazou believe it could have been renamed the “Wizarding World of Wraps!”


In addition to wands and broomsticks, the young students at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry were also required to don cloaks and, during the snowy months in Scotland, thick scarves in the colors of their respective houses.


In “Harry Potter,” Hogwarts is divided into four separate houses, all of which were named after the four founders of the school. The four houses include Gryffindor, Slytherin, Ravenclaw and Hufflepuff.


The books’ and movies’ protagonists, Harry, Hermione and Ron, reside in Gryffindor, a house which bears the colors scarlet and gold and is represented by a lion mascot.

All three of the young stars, at one point or another, wear their warm, widely-cut Gryffindor scarves throughout the halls and classrooms of Hogwarts. Their scarves beam with the striped colors of their house, although the width of the stripes seemed to vary throughout the eight “Harry Potter” films, which include “The Sorcerer’s Stone,” “The Chamber of Secrets,” “The Prisoner of Azkaban,” “The Goblet of Fire,” “The Order of the Phoenix,” “The Half-Blood Prince,” “The Deathly Hallows – Part I” and “The Deathly Hallows – Part 2.”


Some characters, such as Hermione, also wore their own scarves on the school grounds, which offered a rare glimpse into the heroes’ own personal styles.
