Although it may seem like the elements are showing no signs of relenting, now may well be the best time for students to start to think about their spring/summer wardrobes. With money potentially being too tight to mention, planning ahead could be the best way for you to ensure that you have the wardrobe you want when the sunshine returns.
Whether you are somewhat of a fashionista or one of those students who is happy to grab some threads from the nearest charity shop and spend the rest of your wedge on beer and pizza, it makes no sense to wait until the warm weather arrives to get yourself kitted out.
Of course, the thing about the student demographic is that it is so broad and therefore has all sorts of clothing styles to cater for. There will the fashion conscious girls who like to shop at the likes of ASOS, Boohoo and Missguided, sporty lads who are happy with a tracksuit from DW Sports and even the more rural folk who will be on the lookout for a number from the likes of John Norris or House of Bruar. So, there is no one size fits all approach for students looking to rejuvenate their wardrobes before summer 2015.
The advice, like most things when at University, is not to leave this to the last minute. If you have a part time job at University, why not put a little aside each week? There is always the student loan, but you may well find the majority of this taken up with your fees, rent and other living costs.
Do you have any advice or clever tips for other students when it comes to putting together a great summer wardrobe on a budget? If so, we would love to hear from you and you could see yourself published here at Young Academic. As always, just send your articles into us at [email protected].
