Kingston students show us how to style this season's hottest trends

Street Style: Spotted On Campus

Kingston University is full of on trend students and lecturers and we are giving you a chance to shine and flaunt your best outfit. River Online were on the hunt again this week for Kingston’s best dressed. Were you spotted? 

Patterned Leggings

Name: Ade

Age: 21

First year pharmacy student

Jacket: Primark

Top: Primark

Leggings: New Look

Boots: New Look

Leggings are a wardrobe staple. They are a perfect ‘go to’ item and can be paired with almost anything. Wearing patterned leggings is a little more daring and it is best to keep the rest of the outfit plain so there isn’t a clash of patterns. Here Ade has paired a dark jacket, top and boots to keep the outfit simple against the loud pattern. Adding a necklace makes sure the top half of the outfit isn’t too dull. 

Fashion tip: Pair patterned leggings with basics so the outfit isn’t too overpowering

Tartan Trend

 

 

Name: Emily Hughes

Age: 20

Third year english language and journalism student

Top – New Look

Necklace – New Look

Leggings – Zara

Boots – Topshop 

Jacket – Miss Selfridge

Bag – Primark

Tartan is back and it is huge this A/W 13 and can be seen in almost every high street store right now. Many celebrities have been spotted recently wearing the vibrant pattern including Rita Ora who was spotted in Paris last week in a tartan suit. Rita was seen wearing the jacket two days in a row…she is definitely showing us that tartan is a must have this season! Like Emily try wearing a dark lip as it is perfect for the Autumn. 

Fashion tip: Add some leather to tartan for that edgy look

 

School Girl

Name: Adama Morons

Age: 19

First year biomedical science student

Top – Primark

Blazer – Primark

Jeans – Peacocks

Converse – Office 

Step back in time this Autumn as it’s all about the school girl trend.  A shirt, blazer and satchel are essential for the look. Rebel against the normal ‘school girl’ look and add chucks like Adama. The Viktor & Rolf SS14 catwalk was all about the school girl look too.

Fashion tip: Adding a colourful accessory can easily brighten an outfit without it being too over the top

 

Midi Skirt

Name: Jo Hakim

Age: 20

Third year journalism student

Top – New Look

Necklace – New Look

Jacket – Topshop

Skirt – Topshop

Satchel – Market

Converse – Office

Midi skirts have been huge this year and the trend is not going anywhere yet! They are a great item which can help transition an item between seasons. Pair with heels, flats, trainers or boots, midis are perfect for any style you want to rock. The midi skirt was a big hit at London Fashion Week so it looks like the trend will also be huge SS14. We better stock up!

Fashion tip: Seeing as the skirt covers up a lot of leg, it’s acceptable to always wear midis with a crop!
