You might’ve already heard of dark academia: one of the Internet’s favorite aesthetics that features a gothic, scholarly look. And if its brooding vibe daunts you but you still want to give the school look a shot, try dark academia’s counterpart: light academia! It’s dark academia’s softer version and mainly incorporates neutrals like cream and beige—think of eye-pleasing outfits that scream Gilmore Girls. To introduce you to the aesthetic, we’ve compiled light academia-inspired outfits from influencer Bianca Gan.

Check out the seven light academia-inspired outfits we’re copying from Bianca Gan:

1. ICYDK: an argyle print is an essential part of the light academia starter kit. Incorporate a neutral-colored argyle sweater or vest into your outfit to effortlessly achieve the ~school girl~ vibe.

2. Put together a classic light academia outfit by layering a knitted vest to a white shirt or long-sleeve polo. You can opt to pair it with a mini skirt like Bianca or with ankle-length trousers for a more formal look.

3. Don’t be discouraged from wearing a turtleneck in a humid country like ours. After all, the versatile piece is a foundation for most light academia looks: you can wear it on its own or layer a blazer over it. It’s the perfect combo for cold, rainy days!

6. Plaid is just as essential as stripes for a light academia outfit. Channel your inner Rory Gilmore and incorporate this classic pattern into your OOTD.
