TRENDS F/W 2022 – Academia Styles

Academia Styles

Academic-infused styles got a massive boost in 2020-2021, during the COVID-19 lockdown, and will remain relevant in 2022.Driven by social media nostalgia for school and fashion, this fashion style emphasizes education, learning, reading, writing, hence the ‘Academic’ touch.The style can be split into three substyles: Dark, Light, and Grey Academia.Each substyle has its own characteristics; for example, Dark Academia draws inspiration from the classic Greek arts, writing, architecture, deeply infused with Gothic elements and concepts of death.You can go with Dark Academia style by choosing heavy knitwear in dark tones, inspired by ancient, Hogwarts-worthy libraries.Or, Light Academia for a ‘lighter’ twist on its goth-leaning counterpart, and create an aesthetic that carries an air of refreshing positivity.
