Hogwarts students will get a new look in HARRY POTTER AND THE CURSED CHILD!

You’ve always been able to tell a Hogwarts student’s house by the colors on their robes. In the Harry Potter and the Cursed Child stage play, you’ll also be able to tell their school year based on their robe design!

The official Twitter account of the play tweeted out an image featuring several year-specific robe sets, giving the audience a new way to recognize the ages of characters.

“Early sketch for the new Hogwarts black robes with added top robes and house hoods, as part of the uniform set. I was looking for a natural visual progression with this new story plus any ways to add individuality within the uniform,” Costume designer Katrina Lindsay said in the tweet.

Snitch Seeker searched the barely readable notes on the sketches and found the production name for most of the the designs.
