House of Stark
House Stark is a noble house in the North. Darker hair, light skin, and grey eyes characterize those in House Stark. Their sigil is a grey direwolf and the North is very cold, so it is no surprise that the family dresses in loads of fur to stay warm.

Pile on the fur for the House of Stark look! Keep your fur in place with a fancy broach and you’re all set.
House of Lannister
The Lannisters are tall, blonde, and usually quite attractive. They hail from the South so their dress is much lighter, prettier, and more ornate than those of the North.

Head to toe patterns, long dresses, and pretty jewelry scream Lannister.
The Dothraki people are a copper-skinned race with dark eyes and black hair. Very much like savage nomads, with their own language and unique culture, the Dothraki people are easy to identify. The men –and women for that matter –are often portrayed without shirts and leather skirt-like bottoms.
