Fashion in the Forum: January edition

We may be leaving the EU, but at least we look fabulous


From *that* Versace dress Lizzo wore at the Grammys, to Tyler, The Creator's homage to the bellhop and Billy Porter's iconic fringe hat, 2020 has served some serious looks so far.

As we reach a hiatus in the ceremony season, it's time to turn our gaze to the most fashionable members of campus this week.

Ronnie, Third Year, Economics

Our resident Bella Hadid, Ronnie, glows in this simple, yet effective, colour palette, contrasting pastels with darker tones. Her statement jumper is & Other Stories and the jeans are Zara (only £16.99 in the sale!)

Jake and Tom, Third Year, Physics and Business Economics

Behold, the first power duo of the year. Tom (left), self-proclaimed "thrift king", sports a Reebok puffer bought from a charity shop, and trainers from the Reebok/Palace collaboration.

Jake also flaunts his second-hand garms, in a Polo Sport jacket from Depop, bought "pre-Depop hype".

Martha, First Year, English and Drama

Martha demonstrates how to experiment with layers in winter, in this stunning kaftan from Urban Outfitters. She completes her boho-chic look with Doc Martens and a necklace from Bali.

George, Third Year, Economics

George is totally on point in the piece of the season, the sweater vest. He pairs his vintage Ralph Lauren knit with a white long-sleeve tee and ASOS jeans.

Carolina, Third Year, History of Art

Carolina artfully combines high street with haute couture, in a jacket from Weekday, jumper from Topshop and Dior boots.

Isaac, Third Year, International Relations

Isaac is cool, yet understated, colour-blocking the classic combination of navy and cream.

He pairs cargo pants from Bershka with a simple Urban tee. Clock the coordination with the stripes on his Adidas Superstars.

Lucie, First Year, Clinical Psychology

Image may contain: Long Sleeve, Jeans, Denim, Overcoat, Sleeve, Jacket, Coat, Pants, Footwear, Shoe, Human, Person, Apparel, Clothing

Cute and quirky is the image, whilst slow fashion is the secret, for first year Lucie.

Her cow print jacket is from a French vintage shop, and her shoes, originally purchased in an Italian boutique, feature her own hand-painted design.

As our beloved white trainers often do, they began to look worn out after several wears, so she decided to remaster them herself.
