It’s a well-known fact that freshers' week is a time for socialising, meeting new people and making an impression. With these three things in mind, looking stylish is the top priority for many students!

At the very start of term, the wardrobe of every typical student tends to be overflowing with brand new going out clothes, purchased solely for the purpose of the wildest and most-anticipated week on the academic calendar. After all, it would be highly embarrassing if photos of you wearing the same outfit on numerous occasions were to be uploaded on Facebook, right?

Before long, the week will be over and we can guarantee that neither you nor your bank account will be feeling so fresh! Heart breaking as it is, it’s more than likely that you’ll have worn each and every single item in your closet, leaving you with no other option but to head out on yet another spending spree and burn an even bigger hole in your overdraft.Worse still, the temptation to stumble into uni wearing your comfiest hoodie, baggiest sweat pants and a pair of UGG boots will be all too great.

So what’s the solution? Invest in a few key pieces that can be both mixed and matched and dressed up or down with items that are already in your wardrobe. By following this simple piece of advice, you can conveniently create an outfit for any occasion, be it a day in the library or a night out on the town.

The five following versatile items are absolute essentials for every wardrobe post freshers’ week. Purchase these and you’ll be the most fashionable on campus.

Heeled Biker Boots

There aren’t many leg lengthening shoe styles that allow you to walk freely and easily! Heeled biker boots are one of the very few exceptions to this rule. Wear them by day or by night and we promise there won’t be a blister in sight!

High Waisted Skinny Jeans

Stroll into a bar wearing a pair of high waisted skinny jeans with a bralet top or sheer blouse and you’re guaranteed to turn heads. To achieve a more casual daytime look, why not team them up with a chunky knit or a boyfriend shirt?


This much-loved style of jacket is a chic and lightweight night out necessity. Wear it to lectures the following day and your wild child, party animal reputation will be quickly replaced by an air of intelligence and sophistication.

Maxi Skirt

A maxi skirt is the perfect alternative to your standard, over wornpair of leggings or jeans. If it’s a laidback look you’re after, dress it down with an oversized sweater and a pair of Chucks. Struggling to find something to wear in the evening? Glam up your maxi skirt with a crop top, waist belt and statement jewellery and you’re ready to hit the town!

Patterned Scarf

Transform any outfit with this simple yet stylish accessory. Jazz up your everyday attire with a brightly coloured scarf to give your look that little extra something. Look the part at a gig or an underground venue by tying your patterned scarf around your head.
