Proud owner of a 20% off student discount code, courtesy of UNiDAYS? From fashion favourites to those all-important essentials, find exactly what you’re looking for as you enter the new term with our run-down of the best buys of AW18. Here’s what to spend your student discount on…
1. Baker Boy Hats
As seen on the capital’s streets for London Fashion Week, baker boy hats are back in a big way for AW18. Taking you from campus to catch-ups over coffee, this season’s key buys come in classic black, powdery pastels and heritage checks, and, in turn, offer a myriad of simple yet effective styling options. Wear with everything from oversized aviator jackets to slouchy knits and boyfriend jeans.
2. New-Season Bags
Need a bag for the new term? From sleek city backpacks in butter-soft suede to bucket bags and oversized totes in statement shades and prints, these new-season styles will slot seamlessly into your wardrobe, rather than being solely limited to lecture halls. We like how each one features thoughtful design details – think sturdy structures and adjustable straps.
3. Resin Earrings
Resin earrings are continuing to make their mark on AW18, combining cool colourways and sculptural shapes for something that feels fashion-forward and directional. Take your pick from long-drop designs in tortoiseshell textures, marbled finishes and glossy golds, and wear them to elevate your look with minimum effort.
4. Blanket Scarves
As the cold weather sets in, oversized blanket scarves are an essential investment for AW18 – and especially if you’re looking to refresh last year’s winter coat. Bold brights and luxe leopard prints are the way to go for statement-making style, while heritage checks in classic colour palettes are on-hand to provide more subtle updates.
5. Student Essentials
Covered off most of your fashion wish-list? It’s time to turn to the essentials. Think pyjamas, slippers and toiletry bags for halls and rented homes, and other student basics such as stationery and reusable water bottles for those hours spent studying.
