Pattern-mixing in Harry Potter
I noticed, and assumed someone else noticed, and combed the interwebs, and found myself creepy and alone.
But I really love the pattern mixing that goes on in H, R & H’s wardrobes in the last few movies, Ron’s particularly. There’s an emphasis on texture and knits (and yes, wool) that I appreciate. It’s not just aesthetically interesting, but it makes sense to the plot: it’s cold and they’re camping much of the time, so of course everyone will pile on as many layers as possible, traditional fashion rules be darned. As a Floridian banished to New England, I get it.
