30+ Dark Academia Outfit Ideas

by Alex DiBacco

I love adding touches of dark academia fashion to my wardrobe all year long, but I find that I especially gravitate towards dark academia in the colder months.

If you’re a Harry Potter fan or are interested in Gothic time periods, then you’ll love these outfits. They’re very British, but the great thing about dark academia is that it can show up anywhere!

These dark academia outfit ideas are super easy to put together. You probably have many of these pieces in your closet already!

My must-have pieces for a dark academia wardrobe include:

From there, you can mix and match or add in other pieces as you like.

You’ll want to stick with darker colors, adding in touches of white or tan. Neutrals are best for a dark academia wardrobe.

I also like to add small, gold accessories, such as a simple coin necklace or small gold hoops. Anything classic and understated works!

When I wear dark academia outfits, I typically choose loafers (if I’m feeling really classic) or combat boots (if I want to make the outfit a little more modern and edgy).

I also recommend investing in a few leather belts in brown and black as well as a brown leather bag.

Use these photos as your inspiration! You don’t need to have every single one of these pieces to pull together a lovely dark academia-inspired wardrobe.
