College/University Fashion Checklist

Sunday, September 08, 2013

It's that time of the year again! The time of the year when you think it's the perfect idea to buy a new wardrobe as you're going to sixth form/college/university or you just fancy a few new pieces of clothing in general and so I thought I'd put together a checklist of the top 5 things I'd be buying to add into my wardrobe this autumn/winter!

1 - Black Biker Jacket - River Island
2 - Fur Collar Biker Jacket - Topshop
3 - Collarless Biker Jacket - Topshop
This is probably my top essential for Autumn/Winter and thats a leather look jacket. I seem to purchase a leather look jacket every year and what's great about a leather look jacket is it can last a few years! I think they're well worth the money and they really do look great with every outfit! I love the shearling faux collar one from Topshop especially as the the fur's detachable!

1 - Arthouse Stripe Leggings - Topshop
2 - Black and White Leggings - River Island
3 - Dark Floral Flock Leggings - Topshop
4 - Diamond Aztec Leggings - New Look
5 - Red check high-waisted leggings - River Island
One thing a really do love is a pair of patterned leggings! I am an addict myself I have so many pairs! I love wearing patterned leggings with oversized jumpers and plain vests and plain blouses! What I love about patterned leggings is they speak for themselves when you wear them!
1 - Navy Blue Cami Top - Topshop
2 - Black & White Dogtooth Top - River Island
3 - Fluro Pink Cami Top - Topshop
4 - Dark Green Cami Top - River Island
Another style essential of mine is a cami top! I love wearing them with anything from shorts to jeans to leggings to patterned trousers! I think a cami top is great value for money as you can wear them during the day and you can wear them at night for a night out with a pair of disco pants or a nice skirt with chunky jewellery and heels!
1 - Chunky Cut Out Boots - River Island
2 - Chunky Buckle Cut Out Boots - River Island
3 - Ultimate 2 Black Leather Boots - Office
I think every autumn/winter you NEED a pair of boots. A pair of boots which are hard-wearing, you can walk in the snow in them and they will last as they're an amazing quality.(I always love boots as they keep your feet so warm!) and of course they look pretty! If you've been following my wishlist posts for a while I've been lusting after cut-out boots and here are my three favourite pairs for this Autumn/Winter!
1 - Black faux fur panel studded tote bag - River Island
2 - Madison Black Ostrich Bag - Marc B
3 - Bertha Black Oversized Bag - Marc B
One thing you DEFINITELY need in your wardrobe this season is a big handbag! Especially if you're off to school/college/sixth form/university. I always go by the rule of having a big bag as you want to fit everything in! I know bags are a little bit more on the pricier side but they last so much better when you've paid a few extra pennies for it!
What do you think of my style essentials? What are your essentials this Autumn/Winter?

Leather jackets and ankle boots are an absolute must for back to school/college/uni! They're so great, and go with practically everything! xxx

Love all of the boots :). This post is making me so sad, I wish I was going back to Uni this year rather than looking for jobs!

Check! All I'm still looking for is a proper, sturdy and stylish bag where I can keep my camera in without getting a very painful shoulder!

Its the cami tops that I'm really loving at the moment!(They're selling them at Primark now for around £4! They're good quality and lovely patterns!) And I've never been one for boots! But these cut out ankle boots have been catching my eye! Great post!
