Elizabeth Says: I love the mix for dark academia of comfort, edge, and classic styles. A wide leg trouser with a Doc Martin instead of a stiletto, yes please! Paired with a more laid back top and a blazer for ultimate comfort and not too many collars.

Benita Says: In another life I'm a perpetual university student who studies the deep mysteries of...something. So basically this trend was made for me!

Michelle Says: (insert - Michelle google searches: Dark Academia) This one is new to me and I’m here for it! I’m getting ‘The Craft’ vibes from this theme (I might’ve just aged myself). #iykyk
