Although uni is going to be different this year, make no mistake - you’re going to have an amazing time! Starting a new chapter, making friends for life and experiencing lots of new things will be just the start of your uni journey. This year, due to government guidelines, the uni structure will be a lot different to what it has in the past. With more lectures and tutorials online, this can only mean one thing for you - lots of comfy loungewear, cosy knits and oversized t-shirts! Before you go, it’d be wrong not to have an affordable wardrobe refresh with all the latest styles. So here’s our top picks from our Student Edit to make sure you’re looking bang on trend, in and out of uni.
Jeans & A Nice Knit
You just can’t go wrong with a jumper and some baggy jeans. With 90s jeans making a reappearance, pair with some white trainers and this black cut-out turtleneck jumper for an effortless yet fashionable look. Put your hair in a neat bun and style with a shoulder bag or tote bag. Where to wear: your Tuesday morning one-to-one, followed by a trip to get a coffee.
The New Preppy
If it’s more of a chilled beer garden with the girls vibe then pair with a staple white muscle tee, silver accessories and casual sneakers. The sunglasses give an off - duty vibe no matter whether they’re left sat on your head or worn properly. Layer with an oversized denim jacket for the cooler September nights.
Your Staple Dress
Sometimes in life you just don’t want to make the effort and, trust me, that is the same at uni too. Keep some staples like this in your AW wardrobe for ultimate effortless looks. With this dress, you can really dress it up with layers and accessories, or keep it simple on its own. Rolling out of bed to your desk for your online zoom meeting never looked so good.
If this outfit is the only coordination you have in your life right now then that’s okay! This screams ultra cosy vibes and we are here for it. There’s no better feeling than having an outfit you feel completely comfortable in! If you need to nip to an afternoon seminar, swap the joggers for some jeans or the sweatshirt for a biker vest and leather jacket.
Pop Of Colour
Add some edge to your uni look with this light green racer bodysuit and a cropped leather jacket. Bodysuits are the perfect top for uni, not only are they super comfy but they’re so versatile and can go with pretty much anything in your wardrobe for any occasion. To complete this look, add some biker boots and sunnies!
Day To Night Dress
This bodycon is everything you need for a day or night occasion. Wear during the day with a long cardigan off the shoulders to a meal out with your flat, and change to a white denim jacket and heeled boots for an evening look at the student bar. The racer vest is a top trend this year, and the pattern of the dress brings an edge to your outfit.
One Top Four Colours
These zip up long sleeve tops will be your new best friend - and now in so many different colours you’ll have one for every mood. Dress them up or down with jeans or joggers for that cosy autumn look! Whether you’re going for a bright neutral look or more of a tonal vibe, this top will get you through it. We’d pair these with some black mom jeans, heeled boots and a vintage shoulder bag.
Owning a winter coat that goes with everything will be your lifesaver as it starts to move into the autumn winter months. With the weather pretty much doing its own thing, one day you might be wearing a skirt and crop and the next day you might need a big wooly coat! And the best thing about it is you can get away with wearing anything underneath! The varsity trend is making a comeback, so sport this outfit if you’re a leather kinda gal with some heeled boots.
Follow this style guide and you’ll never have to worry about what you’re gonna wear ever again. Then you can focus on the more important things - planning nights with your flatmates and getting involved with as much as possible!
