What to Wear For Your First Day at Uni


Being the new guy is always intimidating no matter what situation you are in. Luckily for uni kids everyone is the new guy at some point, but this still doesn’t take the pressure off with regards to your wardrobe choices for the next few days…

Here are a few key looks which are bound to kick your university career off to a stylish start.


So today’s the day you start university for the first time or returning after the long summer break. Nonetheless, you want to make a good first impression to your fellow students, this loose fit boyfriend blazer with relaxed tee and skinny jeans is a perfect combination to look the part and feel great.

You can achieve this look for less in stores such as H&M or online at Missguided/ASOS/Pretty Little Thing.

It’s very easy to achieve for less but looks expensive and classy.



Tuesday comes with similar vibes to Monday, you still want to look fashionable and smart yet not too smart that you look uncomfortable or feel out of place.

University fashion tends to offer a much more relaxed style rather than a day at the office kind of outfit, so what better than to wear an oversized jacket with jeans and pumps, styling it out with a big colourful bag and chunky bracelets.


Mid week brings big jumpers, cosy long sleeved shirts and boots to match. This look is very current with Autumn/Winter’15 trends, this year’s Autumn lines focus on wine colours, knitted coats, cardigans and ponchos. This look is a killer and bound to keep you nice and warm on a frosty September morning.

Missguided have, in fact, launched a wine/burgundy coloured collection in keeping with current trends for you to shop and achieve this look.


Keeping it casual, by now you’ve got an idea of uni life so its time to relax into it. University students live and breath in trainers, they are practical and save your feet from the excruciating pain of wearing uncomfortable shoes. From spending a majority of my summer in Norway where the natives are known for their impeccable taste, this laid back style never disappoints, you look chilled out yet effortlessly stylish just like the Scandinavians.

Whilst the trainers cost more and can range from between £50-£100 the rest of the outfit can be achieved for under £10 if you find key pieces from stores such as Primark or H&M.


It’s the end of week and the last hurdle before the weekend, so why not get the weekend started early with an outfit to go out in a bang.

This outfit is a sure winner, it’s sleek, smart and sophisticated. The waterfall jacket is a front runner for this seasons jacket trend, coupled with a basic tee, skinny jeans and pumps to get you looking weekend ready.

You can find this style of jacket on websites that offer student discount such as Missguided, Asos, Pretty Little Thing, Boohoo and in stores such as H&M and TOPSHOP.

So there you have it, key fashion trends and styles that hopefully help ease the stress of what to wear for uni and get you looking and thinking fashion forward in no time.
