Make sure it lasts
When choosing clothes for yourself as a student one of the biggest things you need to think about is the value for money you will gain from the outfit. When choosing an outfit as a student cost will be a big thing and you will want to ensure that the items you buy will last you all year long. Try to buy the main staples of your wardrobe from a good brand and make sure that the fabric is durable. This way you will always be able to make great outfit combinations as you go along.
Keep it simple
Fashion is something which can be a little bit confusing for us, especially when we constantly see Instagram models wearing crazy combinations. But the truth is that the best thing you can do is keep things simple and calm. Instead of looking for items with lots of crazy patterns and frills, find a style of vest or tee that you like and buy a few colours of it, and buy a simple pair of jeans or a skirt to pair with them. No fuss outfits often look the best because they look effortless.
Go for quality
The temptation to run into primark a week before school starts and raid the shelves is one which is definitely not lost on us, but are you getting the best items you can? There are actually a lot of online sites such as Shein which produce clothes which are still affordable but of much better quality and they will last for longer. Make sure to consider buying better quality items because these will be a good option for you.
When choosing clothes to add to your wardrobe you want to make sure that items will fit with more than one outfit. Let’s take a simple example of a black vest top. You can pretty much pair a black vest with anything from skirts to maxi skirts to jeans to pencil skirts and more. You can use this item for lots of different outfits so it is worth the money. The same goes for items such as a black pencil skirt which can be used with a black vest to make a dress, can be used with a crop top for a sexy look, and can also be used with blouses for a business look. All of these things work in more than one way.
If you are short of cash but you also want to be unique in your style and make a fashion statement, a thrift shop is the best place for you to go. Thrifting clothes is much better for the environment and it will allow you to pick out unique items which you wouldn’t find in high street stores. It means that you will be able to look fresh and unique and people will likely want to know where you go your outfit from!
When looking for the best way to stay fashionable this year it is always good to look back at classic combinations. A sweater and leather jacket can look gorgeous in the winter, a tartan skirt is ideal for autumn and a floral dress is perfect for spring. Classic and timeless pieces can be better than following the trends sometimes because you don’t have to think about them going out of style next year.
Although fashion style is something which might seem super important to you this year, it is also something which is not worth missing out on comfort for. You’ll be stuck in school all day every day and it is important for you to make sure that you are comfortable and cozy in whatever you wear.
Use your assets
The best thing you can do for yourself when trying to style yourself in a fun way for school is to use your body shape. The body is unique and we all have different body shapes to contend with. It is important that we are able to enjoy using our body shape in our outfits and there are lots of ways to do this. For those who are larger; wear wrap waist items and skater dresses to make the waist feel slimmer. For those with an ample chest; wear bodycon and v neck items to make the body look curvy and feminine. For athletic builds; wear peplum and frills and enjoy wearing items such as sports jerseys. Dressing for your body type is definitely the easiest way to stay fashionable and on track this year.
When making an outfit it is important for you to also try and match your accessories. Let’s say you are wearing a red vest and a black skirt. To make this outfit really pop you will want to either wear red lipstick, red shoes, or use a red handbag. Having a small item which matches the main colour of your outfit will make it look effortlessly fashionable and you will feel more put together because of it. By matching items it will draw the eye and make a real statement. It is the ideal way for you to feel more fashionable at school this year.
