As Season 3 of Game of Thrones starts this weekend, I’ve had it on the brain a lot this week, and so I’ve decided to do a series of posts inspired by both the books and the show. Over the next few weeks – and particularly this weekend – look for lots of Game of Thrones inspired happenings here on the blog!
Today, I’ll be focusing on fashion and accessories inspired by House Stark’s sigil and motto. I’ve started with House Stark since so many people seem to be fans (though personally, I lean more towards the Lannisters myself).
The majority of the jewellery I found came from etsy, though I found a few ebay pieces as well. I also had a lot of luck searching for just “wolf” earrings etc, as this brings you up a LOT of results, and can still serve as a nod to your favourite house.

If you’re anything like me, you’re quite happy to show your geeky love for A Song of Ice and Fire with a slogan t-shirt and a pair of jeans. I found a whole bunch related to House Stark and it’s characters here, for a range of budgets. I also found a bag, which although not a t-shirt I couldn’t resist passing up. I personally love the Winter is coming t-shirt with the howling wolf, and the “What would Arya do?” tee.
Is it just me, or are these the most adorable iphone cases ever?! Oddly, I couldn’t find one for Robb (or Rickon, but that surprises me less), but here are the rest of the Stark family. My personal favourites are Arya and Jon, though I love the colours on Cat’s. I think I’ll personally treat myself to the Daenerys Targaryen one, though I might search for a tablet case instead, since the phone cases don’t have a front cover, and I’ve already smashed one iPhone front!
An outfit inspired by House Stark’s banner
Here’s a casual outfit inspired by the House Stark banner from A Wiki of Ice and Fire. The grey skater dress reflects one of the main Stark colours, and the cardigan and shearling boots give a nod to the freezing temperatures of Winterfell. A House Stark charm bracelet and wolf necklace are a few final touches, making the outfit look inspired by rather than costume-y. This is a casual look, that I would wear for a trip to the cinema with my other half, or a lunch out with the girls. I personally wouldn’t wear it to lectures because 99% of the time I’m too lazy to wear heels when I’m carrying books etc, but if you’re less lazy than me go for it!
