Street Style: From Catwalk to Campus

Now that’s winter’s here, Tab Fashion hits the streets of Briz once more to check out how you’re wrapping up


Students’ catwalk-inspired coats and accessories show us that you needn’t sacrifice style for comfort in the winter months.

Here’s the lowdown on how the latest trends have worked their way from high end designers onto the streets of Briz.

Safari prints: just because the weather is grey doesn’t mean you have to reflect it in your clothes! Safari prints (think zebra, giraffe and camouflage) were all the rage in the A/W 2013-14 collections, meaning you don’t have to let go of summer just yet.

Contrasting textures: combining different fabrics in unexpected ways gives an edge to classic styles.

Colour trend: camels, khakis and forest greens were ubiquitous both on the catwalk and around uni.

Mannish tailoring: Designers borrowed ideas from the world of menswear to produce effortlessly cool cuts.

All the trimmings: Coats were finished off with fur on the runways, and students are also embracing the trend with some super-chic accessories.
