Street Style: Spotted On Campus

By River Reporter Nov 26, 2013

Unsure of what to wear? Can't afford a new outfit? Take a look here at KU's most fashionable this week and see how to dress this season and how to grab a bargain!


Frances shows us how to mix and match high street with charity shop

Name: Frances McCain

Age: 20

First-year fashion design student

Jacket: Charity shop

Scarf: Charity shop 

Shirt: Topshop

Dress: Topshop

Shoes: Doc Martens

Frances shows that it is okay to mix and match different prints. It definitely shows off her creative side with a fun and bold outfit. 

Frances has kept the pattern colours similar with a mixture of reds, browns and khaki – which is also very autumn. She keeps to a similar set of matching colours so the outfit isn't too over the top. Try to keep to pairing one large pattern with a smaller pattern like here with her coat and shoes if you are going for a similar look.

Fashion tip: Pair patterned items with black accessories like tights or a handbag to tone down the outfit.

Be bold and be bright

       Don't be afraid to inject colour into your winter outfit       

Name: Elena Gatsenko

Age: 22

MA Fashion student

Hat: Joyrich

Scarf: Traditional Russian scarf

Jacket: Acne

Jumper: Russian designer

Shoes: Nike

Skirt: Topshop

Tights: Wolford

Bag: Tory Burch

The days are getting shorter and the nights are getting darker, which most of us hate. So why make your outfit dark? Be more like Elena and brighten your outfit and take away those winter blues!

Midi skirts are often difficult to pair shoes with but Elena shows us that trainers look perfectly fine and also very comfortable. 

Fashion tip: Add patterned tights to an outfit if you are feeling  a bit plain. 

Mom jeans

              Brothel creepers have come crept back into fashion recently              

Name: Ellie Ashdown

Age: 21

Third-year fine art student

Jacket: Charity shop

Top: Uniqlo 

Jeans: Vintage

Shoes: Creepers

With  a chill in the air it is often hard to style rolled up jeans. Ellie has ditched the summer pumps for a pair of brothel creepers. Try this yourself if you don't mind your ankles getting a little cold!

A baseball jacket can easily be paired with any outfit, including dresses if you want to tone it down so you don't look too frilly and girly.

Fashion tip: Tuck in shirts and tees into mom jeans, like Ellie is wearing, to show off the flattering high waistlook.
