Campus Style: Were you spotted at Good Life?

We checked out the edgiest garms at Good Life’s first birthday bash


After a year of sell-out shows and a festival-filled summer season, Good Life returned to Leeds last weekend for its first birthday. What better way to celebrate than a throwback 90s night at Beaverworks?

It was a hipster’s paradise, and the students of Leeds took it as an opportunity to blame the theme for their questionable choices of outfits.

Cue bucket hats, shit shirts and glitter galore.

We headed to Good Life to spot those who successfully (and not so successfully) dressed to pay homage to our favourite decade…

Joseph called; he wants his technicolour dream-coat back. And are the sunglasses inside really necessary?

Some didn’t quite grasp the ’90s theme. Best of luck with your plant science anyway, Josh.

Top marks for originality boys. But who wore it better? May the vest man win.
