How to succeed at looking fashionable at college without really trying.

Hello Readers,

Not only are your budgets straining under the cost of buying uni books, transport and ‘life expenses’ but I’m sure about now the wardrobe is needing a revisit and cleaning out. O week’s might be over but here’s your guide to looking your best at university for under $50 per piece..

1. Covering your legs

Let’s face it why squeeze yourself into those beautiful (but tight) jeans when you have to run for buses, jump over concrete things and pick up stray pieces of paper that have fallen everywhere after you tripped over a bin, tired after pulling an all nighter on an assignment. Easy answer: stretch/elastic/ability to move like a baby deer is your friend. That includes appropriate jeggings, nice sweatpant style pants and cool embellished leggings.

2. Covering your top half

As cute and trendy as that super bright colourful, gem stoned chiffon top is let’s be real it wouldn’t last a few weeks with you on your uni schedule. Leave the nice stuff and go for tops that are comfortable but also netural. Not only can you pair it with everything but you can wear it a couple of days in a row and no one will really notice! Unfortunately if you choose to wear the rainbow, glitter covered poufy woollen sweater by day 3 of wear everyone will know you have no clothes.

3. Cover yourself in cold weather

Uni is all about layers, while tying an oversized denim shirt around your waist may be just as trendy as knowing what an acai bowl is and how to make kale chips it’s no use if it actually does nothing to keep you warm. Go for thicker and sturdier pieces for nasty weather. It’s all about textured neutrals. Think chambray shirts, flannels, chunky preppy coloured knits (maroon, mustard yellow and navy) and soft leather jackets.
