but we also know that easy to throw on outfit are needed for those pesky 9ams and long sessions in the library!

fun t shirts

grabbing a few that are a little bit more interesting but can still be thrown on with jeans means you can look like you put way more effort into your outfit than you did. result!

who can go wrong with a striped t-shirt? our red and white striped frill t-shirt steps up the game with its playful frills on the sleeves and neckline, giving us major cute sailor vibes.

the same goes for our tropical woman white t-shirt.

white goes with everything and adding a splash of colour keeps things more interesting.

going from white to black (because who doesn’t look good in black?) a great go to is a black tee that has that little something extra.

a mesh hem layer t-shirt is a great way to tick off the mesh trend and have that old faithful always ready for you in your drawer.


dressed to impress


having a few smart looks ready is just an important as having your comfy everyday basics sorted.

maybe you have a presentation coming up, or an interview for work experience you’re dying to get. 

nailing the perfect smart outfit helps give you the confidence to smash that presentation or nail your interview, and the formal dress you might need when you get it!

checked trousers can go with any nice blouse, in black, white or a pop of colour. our black and red checked tie trousers keep it professional whilst synching in their high waist.

if you like this kind of look, why not go all out?

our black and white gingham blazer co-ord is a full outfit that can be dressed up smart for uni or worn with a bralet or bodysuit for a hot look.

if trousers aren’t your thing, a dress is another great way to look smart.

our khaki bishop sleeve dress stays interesting with its crochet details without showing an ‘unprofessional’ amount of skin.


staple jeans


as another wardrobe staple it’s important to have a few good pairs of jeans you can rely on when you’re going into lectures every day.

a pair of blue denim distressed skinnys is the base for any outfit, and high waisted of course.

pick up a pair of our distressed denim high waist skinny jeans so you always have an easy go to.

for something a bit more fun, some fur fuzziness is a great way to bring in the flare and show off your personality.

our of course faux fur hem high waisted skinnys add that little bit of luxury to your look.

another way to get the fur in there are our fur pocket skinny jeans. still keeping it faux of course!


 comfy co-ords

co-ords a great way to stay comfy and warm. they have the added bonus of making you look put together when really you can throw one on and you’re ready to go!

our navy plat knit co-ord will keep you warm and cosy in the library and are easy to wear with trainers and go straight out the door.

for a slightly more glam option, a knitted skirt co-ord keeps things smarter and keeps you comfy.

orange is the biggest on trend colour this season, so our orange knit polo and skirt co-ord ticks off comfort, look and staying on trend!

the same goes for our blush chunky knit loungewear set, adding more interesting details with its split sleeves and side tie belt.
