Campus street style: Best coats on campus

Winter is coming

As the cold winter days close in and those 9 ams get even harder, we start to dig out our beloved coats which have been left isolated and ignored during this year’s scorcher of a summer.

Brace yourselves for this week’s best coats on campus.

Megan, Geography

Not bad for a primarni

Megan is keeping it classy yet cheap with this steal from Primark. Pairing her bargain beige coat with classic Chelsea boots and an all important bottle of water, this coat is perfect on a cold campus (hungover) day.

Jess, Bio-Med

Pretty in pink

Bye Barbie and hello Jess. Jess wears a beautiful baby pink coat from New Look which safe to say brightens the grimmest of autumn days.

Elena, Geography

Perfect for autumn

Traditional, practical and chic. Eleanor ticks all the boxes for dealing with Sheffield’s unpredictable weather. This forest green number from Topshop comes with a hood for those rainy days yet retains it lightweight, making it perfect for autumn.

Robin, Journalism


You can’t go wrong with a basic black over coat. The length is long enough to be autumnal yet short enough to avoid being gothic. Looking like a suave detective, Robin keeps it simple with dark blue jeans and black shoes.

David, Psychology

A faithful Cow purchase

Psychologist David is bringing a modern twist to vintage style. David’s double breasted jacket is bringing sophistication to Sheffield.

Jenny, Environmental Science

So warm, so stylish

Yet another bargain hunter. Environmental Scientist Jenny found this cosy Urban Outfitters number on none other than eBay. This coat, despite the fact that it’s fur-lined, is very versatile – wear with a short floaty dress like Jenny on warmer days, and team with an oversized scarf on those chillier mornings.

Pavan, Chemistry

Anything looks better with a John’s Van in your hand

Pavan is wearing the classic parka, perfect for all weathers. His brown suede shoes pick out the fur on the coat and his loose fitting shirt prevents the outfit looking too wintry.
