Fashion in the Forum: Week five

Glowing in the Grey!


We're almost halfway through the term and yes, it's still raining. You may have felt inclined to grab jeans and a baggy jumper on a few too many chilly mornings this week- but not these trendsetters!

Look no further for a seductive selection of leather jackets, loose fits and biker boots – here's how to style this season's staples.

Kinvara Robertson, Third Year, Economics

Rocking earthy tones and brass jewellery, Kinvara is a vision of autumnal style. She pairs a patent leather jacket from Ganni with chic straight leg trousers from Urban Outfitters.

Her fit is freshened up with a stand-out pair of boots from Essentiel Antwerp. (Phone case not included).

Ollie Martin, First Year, History and Philosophy

Our best dressed male of the week, Ollie, breaks up his monochromatic look with a luxe shearling jacket he bagged at the Vintage Kilo Sale.

Monochrome is a safe staple in this dodgy weather, which biologist Charles is executing with French flair.

His Uni Qlo roll-neck and Dickies are tied together with a leather belt for the perfect Geek-Chic look, championed by the likes of Harry Styles and Anwar Hadid.

Sadie Dallas, Third Year, History

Sadie slays as the ultimate biker chick.

Ladies, if you've been trawling through Depop for the perfect straight leather jacket, then let me stop you in your tracks – she copped this beauty from Topshop!
