Harry Potter's first set of dress robes were cut in the same style as his school robes, but coloured green instead of black. By contrast, Ron Weasley's first dress robes were cut more like a dress and accessorized with a lace collar.
During the 1994–1995 school year, Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry hosted the Triwizard Tournament, which included the traditional Yule Ball in December. For this occasion, students in the fourth year and above were required to bring dress robes in addition to their normal uniforms and equipment.
Members of the Slug Club apparently wore dress robes when they attended Horace Slughorn's Christmas party in December 1996, and dress robes were worn at the Funeral of Albus Dumbledore. Those who attended the Wedding of Bill Weasley and Fleur Delacour also wore dress robes, as they would have for any comparable party or special event.

Behind the scenes
- In the films, the design of wizards' dress robes is based primarily on tuxedos and fancy suits, as they are worn at similarly formal events. Dress shirts, waistcoats, and ties/bowties are all components of these outfits. Witches' dress robes are for all intents and purposes equivalent to Muggle dresses or gowns. These can be full length – falling to the ankles – or only extend as far as the knees.
- The dress robes portrayed in the films tend to have a lot more added decoration, including of beading, embroidery, frills, and intricate patterns in the fabric. The robes may also possess features that reflect something about the person wearing them:
- Dumstrang students have short, fur-lined capes as part of their dress robes, reflecting the heavy furs normally worn as part of their school uniforms.
- Parvati and Padma Patil wear robes inspired by the sari, a traditional Indian woman's dress.
