Thanks to the light- and dark-academia aesthetics that are running rampant on TikTok — and largely due to the "Euphoria" effect on fashion, with Cassie, Maddy, Lexi, and Kat frequently making statements in argyle miniskirts and polos — the collegiate aesthetic is trending. Of course, expressing your individuality is easier when you're repping your own personal memorabilia, so think of your hoodie as your most expressive accoutrement.
Style stars offer plenty more ways to master this trend with class, taking the college sweatshirt from the small screen to the streets. Take a tip from some of our favorite TV characters, like Issa Dee and Molly Carter at their reunion in HBO's "Insecure" season five. They memorably team their Stanford University throw-overs with wide-leg jeans, a Telfar bag, a miniskirt, heeled sandals, and a Bottega Veneta crossbody, respectively.
Your college hoodie will look surprisingly refreshing as the foundation for your pantsuit, complete with a pair of loafers or cropped right under the bust and styled with a low-slung midi skirt and waist bag.
