Campus fashion: English Literature edition

English is gonna be lit

When you think of English Literature students, it’s easy to get caught up in stereotypes of dusty book nerds in plaid shirts hunched over poetry in the library. While part of that trope may be true (we do love poetry), in terms of fashion sense it couldn’t be further from reality. From what I’ve noticed, English Literature students at Newcastle are some of the most stylishly (and quirkily) dressed around. Here’s a selection of some of the stand-out looks from this year's freshers:
