Mid September means just one thing – it’s time to go back to University. Whether you’re returning for your second or third (or even fourth) year, or starting as a brand new fresher, it’s always nice to get into the swing of student life with a bit of a change, whether it’s a new course, a new set of friends or a new wardrobe.
Student life is typically on a budget – the student loan will only stretch so far – so if you are thinking of updating your look it doesn’t need to be done with a huge spree, just choosing a few select outfits that can be mixed and matched to suit Uni life is really all you need.
So we’ve pulled out some key looks from our size 16+ So Fabulous! range, that we really think suit the student style. Starting with this checked blouse in pretty pink and red shades, which looks fab dressed down with these wide leg jeans and a chunky knit scarf. Keep warm on the way to lectures with this very on-trend quilted jacket and you’ll find it’s a really relaxed and easy to wear outfit. Wide leg jeans also look great teamed with platform shoes or boots, giving a nod to the 70s trend and balancing out a gorgeous curvy figure.
If you like the laid back, slightly grungy style, but want to feel a bit more dressed up, we think this second outfit really ticks all the boxes. The drapey cargos come in one of this season’s top colours and look just the right side of dressy when worn with a pair of chunky heeled boots. They would look equally as good with a pair of killer heels for a night at the pub, or with some trainers and this England print t-shirt for a real casual style. The knot front top completes the outfit perfectly and is another versatile piece which would look fab worn with skinny jeans and some glam accessories.
Even students like to get a little dressed up now and then, and we think this outfit is perfect for a night out at the students union or your local pub. Get more for your precious money with a two pack of leggings, which will go with pretty much everything, and pair with this cute Let’s Dance t-shirt which features cut out shoulders – a style that is very popular right now. Wear with heels and you’ll have a dressy, but not over dressed outfit that can be dressed up or down, and mixed and matched to your hearts content!
