Student friendly style on a student friendly budget anchored with jeans, leggings, boots, sweaters, jackets and T’s – the trick is versatile pieces to take your wardrobe from casual to glam (without breaking the bank).
TREND ALERT – Six student styles to scout for…
- Leather – anything from head to toe and accessories in-between;
- Baroque – luxurious fabrics and metallic threads
- Minimalist – fabric and shape are key, space age fabrics and unusual misshapen forms are integral to this trend
- Print on Print – dramatic or feminine prints combined
- Hero Pant – tapered, wide, cropped, patterned or plain this is the must-have item for the season;
- Winter Floral – darker, richer tones of flowers warm up this popular summer trend
Take heed of Sara’s top tips for transforming effortless book-worm into bar-hopping elegance below…
ADD LAYERS, ACCESSORIES OR A BOLD LIP
- A fabulous slick of a red lipstick adds instant evening appeal to any look and dress up those leather pants with a metallic knit. The versatile Bett’s Pandora ankle boot, a Westfield exclusive, oozes street style by day and killer heel after-dark.
- Re-use summer florals by adding a winter floral or rich jewel tone to complement, think plum, navy or emerald green.
- For the more feminine and fun, a print on print dress captures the runway trend and flatters the figure with tights and flats by day, add a heel and jacket for night.
- Swap leggings for leather tights or pants (tracksuit style) for a quick change for the bar scene, pair with a statement shoe and T, alternatively introduce some lace or metallic up top for a touch of opulence.
- Trade your favourite jeans for any kind of pant, for the same tutorial comfort but more fashion credibility.
- Comfort stakes – minimalist is huge this autumn winter, pair oversized knits and textured, space age fabrics with an ankle boot. Comfy for long lectures but easily amped up for night
