ladies first! most of us can agree the best part of a night out is getting ready.

the perfect outfit lays the foundations for a perfect night, so don’t worry, we’ve got you covered!


the mini dress


going back to the classics, here are a few items to spice up your look when you’re bored of the little black dress.

for the girls who like to go extra, glitter in an autumnal hue is a perfect choice. our plum glitter bodycon dress hugs your gorgeous figure, and unleashes the sparkles on the dancefloor.

a more toned down option is our classic red bodycon dress, staying skin tight without the drama of glitter.

you can also be a bodycon babe in our pink pu glitter mini dress, giving you the perfect glam look for any night out.


casual chic


for a lot of people freshers can mean a week of club nights in your best dress.

but some nights are more laid back, like an event at the students union or another more chilled venue.

if the rave scene is more your thing, reflective trousers are a fun way to go.

style our yellow colour block joggers with hoops and a crop top for that laid back glam.

layering and cycling shorts have been huge trends for 2019, and go great together in a trendworthy outfit.

add our fishnet mesh mini dress over some long shorts for that instant carefree look.

distressed khaki camo is another trend topper, and our khaki camo ripped studded skinny’s give you that perfect laid back glam appearance.


the luxury look


going in the opposite direction, we know some of you might be lucky enough to go somewhere dead fancy on your freshers.

if you love the more luxurious look, a strappy satin dress is the one for you.

dripping in elegance, our nude strappy back satin dress makes you look expensive without spending all your loan. goals!

another dress choice shows off some skin with its sexy mesh chest, with gorgeous ribbed and glitter detailing.

shop our glitter mesh chest dress in red or orange for a pop of colour.

as we always say at jyo, a co-ord is a great way to make an outfit look very put together with minimal effort.

our faux suede frill hem co-ord feels fancy in its animal friendly faux suede, complete with frills.


moving on the menswear, we’ve put together some great picks for freshers with the boys.


the smart shirt


button down shirts are always a solid choice for a night out.

if you love the classics, our process monochrome long sleeved shirt keeps it simple and refined, available in either black or white. 

flannel is another timeless piece, and a great addition to your autumn attire after freshers is over.

pick up our white and black checked thick shirt for a versatile day to night option.

to add a bit of colour into the mix, our green zipped pocked striped sleeve jumper goes great with any jeans, and is a nice easy go to for a more casual freshers night.


jeans and joggers


kicking off with a staple, a pair of black skinny’s completes any night out look, and is a great fallback when you’re going out every night for a week!

our black slim fit denim jeans are flattering on everyone and go with all the shirts in our edit.

if lots of black isn’t your thing, you can never go wrong with blue denim.

some light denim distressed skinny jeans might be more up your alley, and also act as a versatile piece to go with your night out fits.

for a more interesting choice, mix things up with some washed denim white tape joggers.

achieving the definition of smart casual, these joggers are perfect to go from day to night, and work great for a more chill night out.


the classic jacket


a jacket can make or break a great outfit.

fashion aside, a week of nights out in september means some chilly hours spend in the club queue or smoking area, so having an on trend jacket to hand wouldn’t do any harm.

denim is a forever on trend essential without being too heavy, making it easy to carry around if you don’t want to fork out for the cloakroom.

black goes with everything, and the same goes for black denim.

to spice things up a bit, embroidered detail gives you a biker gang look and a serious badass effect.

our snake embroidered distressed denim jacket ticks all the boxes in a light layer for a night out that won’t compromise on style.

if denims not your thing, bombers are back with a vengeance. our side stripe checked bomber jacket again adds that expensive look to your night, but with 25% off at just £21, you don’t have to spend the cash.
