PARTY QUEEN / Jan 24, 2022


It's been years since Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire first aired, yet we're still fangirling over Hermione's yule ball dress.

The beautiful pink A-line gown featured a tight bodice, sweetheart neckline, and ruffled chiffon detailing in the skirt.

Hermione's yule ball dress made her feel like a princess that night—and we think elements of this dress would lend perfectly for your next special outfit, like a quinceanera dress, dama dress, prom dress, or homecoming dress.

Let's see how you can recreate the Hermione yule ball dress for your special occasion, shall we?

👗 For Your Quinceanera Look

Yes, typically, quinceanera dresses are full and fabulous, but you can still incorporate parts of the Hermione yule ball dress into your look.

Of course, you can choose a quinceanera dress that's pink! This is a popular color for quinceaneras because it's all about celebrating your femininity!

Because quinceanera dresses feature full skirts, we also encourage you to embrace the ruffles that appear on Hermione's yule ball dress. The more, the better! Today is all about you—so wear a dress to match.

While Hermione keeps her hair and accessories simple, we recommend dialing up the glam. Throw on a crown, some shoulder-grazing earrings, and say yes to embellishments on your dress. You only have one quinceanera, after all!

👗 For Your Dama Look

While you only have one quinceanera, you may be a dama several times—and it's important to have a winning look too. While dama dresses are typically shorter in length, there are still ways to capture Hermione's yule ball look.

For example, you could choose a dama dress that has a sweetheart neckline and cut-away, off-the-shoulder, or cap sleeves. Sweetheart necklines are super romantic and feminine—perfect for a quinceanera.

Oftentimes, the damas wear a similar hue to the quinceanera but more subdued. Let the woman of the hour wear a bright, bold pink, and choose a dama dress that's dusty rose or blush.

Don't forget your shoes for this look—as they'll be on display. If you're looking to elongate the legs, opt for a nude heel. (It always does the trick!)

👗 For Your Prom Look

This next gown is for the gals who love the Hermione yule ball dress but want to spice up the look.

While it may be necessary to wear pink, why not choose a bright fuschia gown? Prom is a special night—turn heads in a hot pink prom dress!

We love the ruffles in Hermione's dress as much as you do, but instead of rocking a ruffled skirt, you could go for a flowy chiffon rolled hem.

While Hermione rocks some short cap sleeves, you could rock a sweetheart neckline with one shoulder sleeve. An asymmetric gown is perfect for prom night. Show off your shoulder!

But what to do with your hair? Take a page out of Hermione's book and curl your hair. Then, sweep them to the side to make this look modern and sexy. (Plus, it allows you to wear some dazzling earrings.)

👗 For Your Homecoming Look

Like dama dresses, homecoming dresses are typically shorter in length. But again, you can totally recreate Hermione's yule ball look. Here's how:

First, choose a pink dress that's satin. Hermione shined all night in that lustrous fabric—it's an iconic part of her yule ball dress.

She also accentuates her waist with a belt. An hourglass figure? Yes, please! For your homecoming dress, we recommend choosing a belt that's bedazzled with beads or jewels. Pair it with an A-line silhouette, and you've got yourself an oh-so-flattering gown.

Sweetheart necklines and short sleeves are common in homecoming dresses. So if that's what you're looking for, there will be no shortage of options.

And just like that, you've scored Hermione's yule ball dress look!
