Campus style: English Lit student special

To be effortless or not to be effortless, that is the question


It is no surprise that English Lit students are the best dressed on campus. Their twenty minutes of contact hours a week means that they always have plenty of time to focus on nailing that distinctive Manchester style. They have hours to spend deliberating over whether to wear Adidas or Reebok, sheepskin or suede and most importantly Mum’s “vintage” skirt or Dad’s old fleece.

If you don’t study English you probably lack the free time and flowing imagination that is needed to achieve this vibesy look. Luckily, these typical English Lit students can show you the way.

First of all, you need to wear as many brands as possible
