With her black M&S floral jacket, spotted Next leggings and Urban Outfitters tee, we think the combination of black tones and bold patterns compliment each other perfectly.

Cornelia’s outfit is simple but effortlessly chic.

Sean, a half-Greek, half-Austrian student, is wearing a smart casual campus look.

With both his coat and scarf being tailor-made from Italian designers, he’s paired this sleek combo with a Commander jumper, and a pair of classic Levi jeans.

He’s finished off the look with a Superdry bag, which brightens up the outfit with its splash of statement orange slogan.

Amy and her beautiful Zara coat.

The outfit

We think Amy has the perfect chilled back style.

With her grey, sheepskin collared coat from Zara and Topshop jeans, she’s created a warm, yet stylish outfit.

Perfect for the colder weather of January, we love the layering of Amy’s H&M jumper and Topshop shirt.

The black tailoring of her coat teams well with her dark jeans, and she’s carried off the look with a simple Topshop necklace and Schuh boots.

Ned’s classic campus style

The outfit

Ned is wearing a vintage striped scarf, which he’s teamed with a colour-complimenting grey jumper, from Primark.

He’s paired the jumper with a simple combo of navy Topman jeans and black converse shoes: an ideal casual look for guys.

What we love most about Ned’s outfit is his unique leather satchel, which he picked up at a market stall back home.

His trio of leather bracelets complete the look, adding a dash of individual style to an otherwise simple outfit.

Next and H&M.

Cute but comfy: Becky’s campus look.

The outfit

Becky’s outfit is adorable, whilst still perfect for a laid back campus look.

We love her patterned Topshop snood, which teams well with her simple white top (vintage) and floral Topshop skirt.

She’s layered this with a navy Zara coat (her January sale steal) and a pair of black Schuh boots.

Favourite places to shop?

Becky loves shopping at Urban Outfitters – although her student loan may feel otherwise…!

Style inspirations?

Online stores, like Topshop and River Island, that offer style advice to customers.


Frankie and her statement coat

The outfit

Trendy but simple, we adore Frankie’s Topshop leapord print coat, which is bang-on trend with its animal print patterns.

She’s teamed this statement coat with a simple black River Island bag, H&M jumper and black River Island boots.

The plain colours of the rest of her outfit prevent the look from clashing with the heavy pattern of the coat: a perfect combo.

Favourite places to shop?

Forever 21 and River Island – especially for her bags!


Simple style: Samuel’s campus attire

The outfit

Samuel’s outfit has the perfect laid-back vibe.

He’s teamed his light brown Primark jacket with a grey statement tee, and carried off these neutral tones with a pair of vintage maroon trousers and black trainers.

Samuel loves Adidas and Jordan brands, as he likes his style to be comfortable and casual.

Style inspirations?

Preppy chic: Tom’s campus look.

The outfit

With his vibrant red T.K Maxx jacket and striped Zara tee, Tom’s style is bright but well put together.

He’s paired this with a brown leather satchel from River Island, and a pair of ASOS sunglasses (even though it is January).

Tom carries off this laid-back look with a pair of dark brown Zara lace-up shoes.

This outfit is perfect for keeping warm, yet stylish, in the temperamental winter weather.

Favourite places to shop?

Definitely Zara.
