Campus Style SPOTTED: Two Girls, Two Types of Autumnal Layering

With the weather hitting lows of 10˚ this week everyone has either been grabbing their favourite winter coat or as many layers as possible. Our two best-dressed students for Campus Style this week are both first year English students, Lois Baglin (left) and Millie Foster-Price (right). Although both girls have seemingly dressed for the cold weather, it’s clear they’ve achieved their warmth in different ways.

Left: Lois, right: Millie.

Lois opted for a pastel blue turtle neck with her new, fluffy, Zara coat which she layered on top, thereby minimising the amount of layers she would have to wear. This contrasts with Millie who opted for an oversized black vintage ‘Harley-Davidson’ t-shirt over a long sleeve top paired with a khaki print bomber jacket. Both looks are rather vintage but also very different, with Millie’s being grungier while Lois opts for the smart-casual look. These outfits both managed to be warm for the chilly weather, but also very stylish!

Me: What clothing item/ accessory can you not leave the house without?

Lois: My Dr Martens, I’ve had them for a few years but they will always be my favourite pair of shoes, they’re so comfy but also go with everything!

Me: Finally, what shop is your number 1 place to buy clothes from?
