Happy Friday beauties. Today I thought I would show some of the basics that helped me during university. It is so tempting to just walk to your morning lecture in your PJ's This can be a a pain. Personally, I enjoyed figuring outfits ect when I was at university it keeps you awake.
Here are some of my staples.
Skinny Jeans - The mock version of Topshop Joni jeans are incredible. Light and soft they have the feel of nice leggings. These jeans are reminecent of leggings and I usually pair this with a nice oversized tops, some converse or flats. In a word it is the perfect effortlessly chic outfit.
Leather Jacket - Leather is huge this season - on tops and leggings. Leather jackets have always been on trend but this year even more so. It is perfect for those days when the sun is out but it just a bit windy. There are variety of styles out there so I am sure you will find one for you. My advice would be to not buy one in a hurry and if you can afford it invest in a good quality one (although Asda & Tesco have some decent ones)
Big Bag - I am a bit of a nerd. I am always like to be prepared for any situation. This usually results in me seeking a big bag for all my books ect. When I was at university I loved bag shopping (still do! ) if you don't want to spend too much Primark always have some decent bags alongside Zara which for the quality are reasonably priced.
Comfy Shoes - When I was at university I was always running around. I was either going to lectures, running errands or going to the next door flat to say hi. This meant comfy shoes were a must! wearing heels regularly was a no go as it was not practical. Shoes like TOMs, Ballet flats or boots are perfect for everyday use.
Dresses - I love a good dress as I am sure most girls do. I live in them. They go perfect with a pair of leggings, some cute flats and a light sweater. You don't have to break the bank. Asda, Primark, H&M and Tesco all do some great pieces for great prices.
I hope this helps some of you planning a university wardrobe on a budget. Remember the key is to shop around and not buy the first thing you see.
