Street Style: Spotted On Campus

By River Reporter Dec 10, 2013

It's the last week of term and the last street style before Christmas. Grab some inspiration from these trendy three and have some ideas of what fashion items to add to your Christmas list. 

Mix & Match

Samantha stays warm in a furry vintage coat

Name: Samantha Dixon

Age: 22

Third-year sociology student

Coat: Vintage

Jumper: Vintage via eBay

Leggings: Topshop

Boots: Dr Marten

Mixing and matching vintage with high street has been popular amongst KU students this term. This goes the same for tartan. Daily, Kingston fashionistas have reminded us that tartan has been a big trend for this A/W and it doesn't look like the trend will be going anywhere soon. There is still time to jump onto the bandwagon!

Fashion tip: Don't be afraid to mix bold colours, keep it simple with another dark-coloured item like Samantha so it doesn't look too over the top.

A Transitional Season Essential

     Bored of wearing a coat already this winter? Why not go for a blazer     

Name: Ronan Tegala

Age: 20

Third-year biochemistry student

Shirt: New Look

Blazer: New Look

Jeans: River Island

Shoes: Primark

Blazers are a great item to wear inbetween seasons and can be easily layered so you can keep warm as we move from autumn to winter. It is an essential piece for any male or female wardrobe and can be worn any season. 

Plaid is an essential item for your wardrobe. It can be dressed up, as seen here, or dressed down. Plaid gives that little extra bit of colour to an outfit if it contains a lot of dark winter shades. 

Fashion tip: Skinny jeans can be worn at any occassion with any footwear any time of year, male or female. 

Faux Fur Hat

          Aliyah demonstrates how to stay warm and look fashionable          

Name: Aliyah Jeilani

Age: 19

First-year journalism and English literature student

Jacket: New Look

Hat: New Look

Jeans: New Look

T-shirt: Forever 21

Boots: Topshop

Cardigan: Primark

Russian hats give that extra bit of glamour to an outfit and Aliyah pairs her hat perfectly with winter colours khaki and burgundy. Now there is no need to travel to Russia to find your own as high street stores, such as New Look or Marks & Spencer, have them on sale right now.

Fashion tip: A winter parka is an item you can wear year after year and it never goes out for fashion. If you are looking for the perfect long-lasting winter coat, the parka is the one for you!
