A tweed skirt is a given for any academia trend. I love this tweed midi skirt because it literally pairs well with everything and looks so sophisticated! I especially love it with this cozy square neck sweater.
In terms of outerwear, I think that structured is best whether that’s a blazer, jacket or coat. This pink coat is one of my very favorites and I love that it adds a bit of color into my, otherwise, neutral outfit. The color and bows definitely add to the romantic factor!
Low heels or flats seem to be the shoe of choice for this trend. I always a love a classic cap toe – there’s just something very Chanel about it! This pair is actually made with water bottles, which is incredible. The color combo pairs well with everything and the heel height is super comfortable.
Whether it’s a beret, headband or hair bow, I feel like hair accessories are definitely the accessory of choice when it comes to styling a romantic academia outfit. They each create a very different look and vibe but they are all feminine, elegant and stylish! This bow in particular looks so luxurious and chic! It really adds to the outfit, don’t you think?
Vintage Inspired Handbag
One thing I’ve noticed with the academia aesthetic is that it draws a lot of inspiration from the past. Vintage style handbags and backpacks are definitely prevalent in this style and I’m loving every second of it. This black vintage inspired backpack is a recent addition to my closet and I am just obsessed! And yes, this is the same one I styled with my Clueless outfit 😉
Hope you loved these romantic academia outfit essentials!
