Freshers week is upon us, and that can only mean one thing:  a lesson in the repercussions of excessive alcohol consumption will soon be taught (or re-taught, in many cases). 

From days spent in introductory lectures, to evenings in clubs dancing to songs you won’t remember, freshers week is set to be a wild start to a year long (academic) journey.

Initial impressions are everything, so for that first introductory lecture throw on a shirt and some knitwear. Add a satchel to house any course material and effectively communicate the message to on-looking lecturers that “you’re here to learn,” however true that may be.

Few items beat the Oxford shirt in the way of versatility. Team with some coloured chinos and a casual shoe for a quick, hassle-free, daytime freshers week outfit.

In a rush to get onto campus? Then throw on some jeans, trainers and a T-shirt – you can seldom go wrong with such a simple combination.

A good pair of joggers are the backbone of any freshers week wardrobe. When the night before leaves you feeling worse for wear, slip on a pair of comfy bottoms and head down to your local Cafe to address the hangover situation.

Bear in mind though, an excess of partying can get your clothes looking a bit worse for wear. Hide your favourites until week 2 is upon us to avoid a multitude of booze/ cigarette/ lipstick stains on both clothes and your dignity.

Nothing a fresh shirt can’t fix!
