January is everyone’s least favourite month for a lot of reasons. It’s hard getting back in to the gym, having no money and battling the bitter cold weather. However, it’s a great time for wearing all your new winter clothes and there have been some super stylish outfits spotted around campus.
Third year Psychology student Charlotte was spotted in the library wearing two of January’s newest trends. Firstly, gingham has been all over the catwalks and is set to be a huge trend for 2014. Charlotte’s Topshop smock dress is perfect for looking daytime cool for university and comes in different colours too. Denim shearling jackets are also back this year and can be a great alternative to winter coats, whilst looking edgy and staying warm.
Dan, third year Media and Journalism student is working a major trend with his Sheepskin coat. Sheepskin coats are a great investment because they’re always in fashion and super warm for winter. It’s worth investing in one as they last forever but they can be really expensive when bought new, so it’s best hunting one down in a vintage or charity shop. Dan looks super fashionable and laid back with a long sleeved checked shirt and skinny jeans.
Guys can work shearling jackets too. Ollie, third year English student, was seen leaving the library in his with a classic cable knit jumper underneath, teamed with light grey jeans and brown desert boots. They are a key item for January as they complement all kinds of outfits and still look on trend even with lots of layers underneath.
Third year Nutrition student Amelia was seen looking super cosy and on trend leaving the main admin building. Fluffy coats have been all the range for girls this winter and this over-sized deep green Topshop number is a must for beating those January blues, especially when paired with a faux fur stole. Amelia’s chunky boots give the outfit a rock chick edge.Tweet
