Dark Academia Fashion in casual outfits. Nostalgic aesthetic clothes in dark colors that reflect the past and the present.

The dark academia fashion style is an eclectic and high maintenance clothing style inspired by classical education and literature. It’s the universities of Europe, old libraries, gothic architecture and melancholic romance. At eigensinnig wien we see this style as the perfect combination of nostalgic chic and intellectually clever. For those who see their clothes not just as fashion but as a statement of curiosity and cultural knowledge.

How to dress dark academia?

To combine dark academia in your capsule wardrobe you need to have a sense for material, colors and historical references. At the core of this style are earthy and muted tones – brown, green, ochre, beige and black – that fit perfectly into autumn and winter landscapes. These colors are the warmth and colour palette of old libraries, often dusty but full of secrets and knowledge.

Layering is key to a dark academia casual look. Start with a white Oxford shirt or a blouse with a Victorian collar and then add a sweater or cardigan on top. A tweed blazer with elbow patches or a structured wool coat is the perfect top layer. Suspenders or belts and accessories like pocket watches or round glasses are a must.

At eigensinnig wien we make sure the garments look avant-garde and nostalgic. So tailored pants and shoes in high quality leather can finish the look and make sure the outfit is not only stylish but also wearable.

Must-Haves for the dark academia style

At eigensinnig wien we recommend the following garments as must-haves for the dark academia fashion style:

  1. Black blazers and coats: These are the core of the dark academia look, with historical references and modern cut. We suggest blazers with special details like old university professors’ attire.
  2. Sweaters and cardigans: In muted colors like black, dark green, brown or beige and made from cashmere or wool these layers are comfortable and stylish.
  3. Shirts and blouses: Classic shirts in white, black or muted colors and Victorian blouses with high collars are the foundation.
  4. Pants and skirts: Well-cut wool pants or pleated skirts in dark, earthy colors are perfect. For men slim cut pants are perfect, for women pencil skirts or A-line skirts.
  5. Shoes: Oxford shoes, brogues or Chelsea boots in elegant leather. To add the authentic touch the shoes should be well maintained and polished.
  6. Accessories: Accessories like pocket watches, round glasses, leather bags and designer scarves are essential. Book straps or leather backpacks also fit perfectly into this style.
