The Student Lock-In Shopping Guide

Autumn Fashion

So the time has come... Its now time to step out of shorts and vest tops and wear things more suitable (such as thick knitted cardigans and jackets) for the upcoming season which is Autumn which highlights longer, colder nights, leaves falling and the start of the educational year.


The Biker Jacket: 


This jacket can make anything look uber chic. It's great for Autumn as a coat may feel like too much as the nights are drawing in. They also make any outfit look very edgy. The items below that I have chosen can be mixed and matched with one of the biker jackets to create a rock influenced look. 
Floral Tee - Topman - £20

Biker Jacket - H&M - |£30

Choker Necklace - River Island - £3
Biker Jacket - H&M - £12

Monochrome is normally classed as a mixture of clothes in a shade of black or white mixed together. It comes from when pictures could only be developed in black and white. Below this little description will be a mixture of clothing which can be mixed and matched to create a monochrome look.

Orange Is The New Black:
  So when the Summer season finishes and the Autumn season starts, we all still want to feel like we are within the hot blazing days of Summer. Within Summer, we wear bright colours so the best way to do this is to wear bright colours that are more suited to be layered and teamed with other things. Orange is a great colour to wear this Autumn as it does all of the above but is more suitable for Autumn as it reminds people of the decomposing leaves which sum up this chilly season... Add any of the below to an outfit to make a statement. (No intention on the pun relating to the show.)                               
                                   
Polo Shirt - £15 - Mango
Scrunchie - £4 - Topshop
Stretch Trousers - £50 - Charles Tyrwhitt

Dress - £36 - Topshop
Waterproof Jacket - £90 - Topman
Watch - £30 - Topshop

Heels - £58 - Topshop
Jumper - £18 - Mango
Sunglasses - £12 - Topman
  
Smart Clothes For Education                                                                 So the final array of clothing is for when you need something smart for University, College or Sixth Form. Most Educational establishments like to have a reputation of making sure their students wear smart clothes so they are prepared for the real life working lifestyle. The clothing below can also be used for when you need something formal or for work. Mix and match items below to create a quirky yet smart outfit.
