Street Style: Spotted On Campus

By River Reporter Oct 22, 2013


KU is full of inspirational students with a range of styles. Here we show you the top four students we found at Kingston whose styles we felt inspired by this week.

Lovely in Lilac

The weather may be duller but it doesn't mean your outfit needs to be.

Name: Theresa

Age: 25

Third-year fashion student

Jacket – COS

Jumper – Topshop

Jeans – Topshop

Boots – Topshop

Say goodbye to Winter blues and dress bright this season. Theresa has incorperated feminine shades of lilac, yellow and baby blue into her outfit creating a fresh look.

Wearing brighter colours can also brighten your mood which we need now the days have got darker, colder and wetter.

Fashion tip: Black boots are a must have item, they match any outfit and are perfect for any season. 

Autumn colours

      We spotted Elaha outside Penrhyn Road, next week we could spot you.      


Name: Elaha Walizadeh

Age: 20

Second-year biomedical science student

Boots: Dorothy Perkins

Skirt: H&M

Top: Internacionale

Coat: eBay

Khaki is your typical Autumn colour therefore will never go out of trend. Buy khaki clothing and you will have an item that will never go out of trend as it is a great investment colour.

Elaha has shown us how to boost the dark colours of black and khaki by wearing a red lip.

Hats are popular street style item. Wearing a hat with an outfit gives you an extra bit of edge. 

Fashion tip: Try eBay for bargains and designer duplicates.

Dresses with Converse

            Midi dresses have been huge this year.           

Name: Tas

Age: 21

Second-year English language and communications with creative writing student

Dress: ASOS

Cardigan: New Look

Converse: Bank

Bag: John Lewis

Coat (in hand): Calvin Klein

As Demi Lovato once said "Who said I can't wear my Converse with my dress?" Converse with dresses allows you to remain elegant but stay comfortable and as midi dresses are on trend at the moment, this is the perfect pairing. 

A midi dress is the perfect day-to-night trend, it can be worn at any occasion with just a change of footwear.

Fashion tip: A plain midi gives you a chance to experiment. Try adding a belt, scarf or jewellery to the outfit.

Vintage Style

Kingston is full of both fashion girls and guys.

Name: Matt Congdon

Age: 18

First-year English literature student

Denim jacket: Levi

Brown jacket (underneath): Oxfam

Jeans: Topman

Shoes: Vintage

As mentioned in last weeks Street Style: Spotted On Campus denim is perfect for Autumn as it is easy to layer and Matt shows this perfectly here.  Printed shirts or jackets are a popular vintage trend and perfect to layer up with this season.

Matt's brown jacket from Oxfam is a perfect statement piece as it shows up against the subtle brown colours of the outfit. Checking out local charity shops is a great way to grab a bargain and also find something different to everybody else around campus.

Fashion tip: Layering denim with shirts and jumpers is a look both men and women can pull off.
