Dark Academia

Dark Academia

The aesthetic taking tik tok by storm

The image this subculture tries to emulate is the brooding intellectual wandering around a gothic city like Edinburgh or Milan while contemplating Dostoevsky.

Yes.

Black coffee, wool scarves, latin literature, oxford shoes, candlelight galore.

Casual Sunday activities

The dark academic is interested in all things gothic, death, and melancholic. There is a distinct aura of other-worldliness in interest in angels, Gods and spirits.

Dark academia rejects pop culture and mass consumption as it is seen as frivolous and embraces deep thought and philosophy.

The look is heavily borrowed from prepatory schools, Ivy Leagues and romantic poets.

Dark hair, blazer, lips

All accessories lend to the image of: integrity, soul, tradition, knowledge

Popular materials used: Tweed, leather, cotton, cashmere, silk, linen
