THE UNIVERSITY UNIFORM

When it comes to the outfits I wear around university to lectures etc., I pretty much stick to the same outfits. When I have to wake up early in the morning and go to lectures, I don’t really care to think too much about what I’m going to wear, as long as it’s comfortable and I don’t look like a slob – I’m happy. My style is relatively simple regardless, so there’s not too much room to deviate anyway. My day-to-day get-up usually consists of skinny jeans and trainers with a t-shirt or simple sweater with a jacket on top. On the odd day I might pop on a pair of boots or loafers - extremely simple.

In all honesty, I've been alternating between three jackets. My absolute go-to is my beloved Adidas puffa jacket which is nice to wear on colder days and it just goes with everything. My leather jacket is another one that I wear a lot more on mild days and particularly when I'm wearing a blouse or t-shirt. More recently, I've been wearing my black bomber jacket as it hasn't been as colder lately and it's another versatile piece. When it comes to tops, I have a tendency of switching between t-shirts, sweaters and a shirt/blouse on the odd occasion. I personally find v-neck t-shirts very flattering as it can be paired with a nice chunky knit scarf or with a leather jacket. I find that this cut is just a different take on a plain tee.

Since being at university, I don't think I've ever worn a skirt or dress (well not to lectures anyway) - they don't scream comfort to me. I am most definitely a jeans type of girl. My favourite jeans are from Newlook as they are comfy and affordable. I often opt for either the jeggings or the super skinny range. Both sales have loop holes (perfect for me as I always wear belts when I wear jeans) and viscose which means they're stretchy and comfortable whilst upholding the appearance of jeans. Again sticking on the comfortable bandwagon, I only really wear trainers (mainly because of the sh*t weather, but come spring/summer, I'll be whipping out the espadrilles and a fresh pair of white converses). My easy casual footwear picks are definitely my black old skool vans, a cruddy pair of (what were) white converses, my black hi-top converses, on a couple days a pair of loafers, over the knee boots and my newly introduced all black Nike Presto's!

What's your go-to outfit for day to day?
