Street Style: Spotted On Campus

By River Reporter Oct 15, 2013

This week we are showing you that fashion isn’t just for girls and we have also been spotting Kingston’s best dressed guys. We are giving you an excuse to dress up for university as we could catch you when you least expect it next week! 

Practical but Stylish

Name: Toby Cushnir

Age: 20

Second-year graphic design student


Trousers: American Apparel

Toby’s plain and simple outfit is practical but stylish and is perfect for the commute to university by bike or any other form of transport. Add a splash of colour to a dark outfit by adding a coloured shirt under a dark jumper. 

Fashion tip: Wear low-cut socks with Converse or boat shoes such as these

Double Denim

Name: Nikki

Age: 21 

Third-year pharmaceutical science

Dress: H&M

Shirt: H&M

Boots: Doc Marten

Jacket: Gap

Wearing denim on denim is always a tricky one but Nikki shows us that double denim is acceptable especially if you wear two different coloured denims. The change in colour creates a subtle double denim look. If you want to try the look yourself make sure you don’t over do it like Britney and JT. 

Fashion tip: Pair a beanie with a casual outfit for the colder months 

Clashing Patterns


Name: Jess

Age: 19

Second-year English literature

Cardigan: Rocket

Skirt: Primark

Scarf: Peacocks

Boots: Clarks

Clashing patterns is on trend right now. To make sure your outfit isn’t too lairy add dark leggings or trousers and footwear like Jess so the outfit isn’t too bold. Try to keep the colours similar even if the patterns are not to make the outfit come together.

Fashion tip: When clashing patterns try a darker colour on top of bold colours so the outfit isn’t too over the top

Night Owl


Name: Mashaal Rana

Age: 21

Third-year journalism student

Jacket: Hollister

Necklace: Accesorize

Scarf: New Look

Jumper: H&M

Trousers: Pull & Bear

Boots: Miss Selfridge

Bag: River Island

Mashaal has made a simple, basic white outfit interesting by adding a brightly coloured scarf and jacket. This outfit is perfect for day and night, the heeled boots are the perfect alternative to heels. Comfortable but glamorous. 

Fashion tip: Make an outfit stand out more by adding bold accessories.


Remember next time to bring a spare outfit as we could catch you on your walk of shame (or stride of pride)!
