Dark academia style. A full fashion guide to dark academia aesthetic

The Talented Mr. Coast Modern• Mid-length or long skirts• Large polo necks• Picnic at Hanging Rock 1975• Monster• Broaches• I love how all of the pieces are oversized yet are perfectly tailored. Keep a journal where you gush over the new things you've learned. Trousers• My only issue with items is that they can be a bit too trendy. They also have button-down shirts, vintage blazers, and pencil skirts. Other than the appreciation of learning, dark academia thought includes themes of criminality, danger and mystery. Wilde 1997• Collared shirts are as professional as it gets and a great piece to incorporate into your style if you want to dress like an academic.

Testament of Youth 2014• Loafers• Coffee shops are associated with both the flaneurs of 19th-century Paris and the contemporary stressed college students of today.

Fullmetal Alchemist• Gotham Academy• Sherlock• So you can have pieces in your wardrobe that works for both seasons.
