Take style cues from these fashionable stars who are ahead of the fashion game!

In case you missed the memo, the "academia" aesthetic is one of the biggest trends to hit the fashion world by storm this 2022. The look is often characterized by pleated skirts, plaid shirts, sweater vests, knee high socks—you get the drift.

It's the not-so-new cool girl trend that you should be getting on, stat!

The late Virgil Abloh revived the hype for bombers during his final autumn/winter 2022 shows for Off-White and Louis Vuitton, and other fashion houses, from Versace to Gucci, also hopped on the collegiate train.
