It’s that time of year again when the gloves, scarves and coats emerge out of the back of the wardrobe. As a student you need to let your money stretch as far as you can while keeping your winter wardrobe alive. Here are 3 ways to wear a simple shirt yet transform your look.
Look 1: Day
Chunky heeled boots are really in this season and are practical footwear for day to day activities, whether you are out with friends having a coffee to warm up or if you just need to run to the shops for a few essentials.
You can add any accessories with this look, but this backpack is a great as it gives the outfit a laid back element.
You cannot go wrong with a pair of classic blue jeans during the winter months, they are a timeless piece of clothing and are essential for this day time look.
Look 2: Work
Whether you have an appointment, interview or class to go to, this outfit will make a good impression.
Rather than an ordinary suit, pair the shirt with black paisley print trousers to add a bit of texture and if you want to look really smart add a fitted blazer.
As this is a winter guide if you are going to take out a bag, how about a toasted orange bag to give it that warm winter feel? The splash of colour will tie the outfit together.
Look 3: Night
For the third and final look, give your shirt and winter wardrobe a bit of glamour.
Whether you are going for a night out with the girls or maybe even a date, adding an A-line skirt gives your shirt a girly look and becomes less harsh.
Your night time outfit deserves a bit of sparkle, so why not add a chunky necklace to sit right under the shirt collar? Depending on your preference this outfit will look great with heel or flats.
There you have it, 3 ways to wear a plain shirt, yet look like you have bought completely new outfits. You can always use this as a guide with something you already own, but you can pick this shirt up from Primark for just £12. Don’t forget to pair these looks with a warm scarf, coat and gloves as the winter months draw in.Tweet
