Alice's Fashion Favourites
Now, I know I’m no supermodel, but these are my favourite outfits, and when I wear them, they make me feel a bit like I could be one.
The first outfit is my favourite (at the moment!) for the daytime and to be honest, I’m actually a bit of a slob. The big tunic is a Primark special (£12 I think?) that I bought last week, and I already have a real soft spot for it. It’s baggy and comfortable but still looks good. I always like to add a coloured vest underneath, because it’s too sheer to wear without one, and black just makes the whole ensemble too drab and dreary.
Combined with a pair of trusty pumps and a pair of jeggings, an H&M leopard print scarf, and a favourite Tissot watch pendant, in this ensemble I feel relaxed and ready for the day of uni ahead, but still stylish and quite girly.
The dress in my evening selection is from Miss Selfridge. It was a gift for my 21st birthday, and I love it. The cut is really flattering and the way it is nipped in at the waist makes me feel really shapely and feminine. Paired with trusty leggings, or even with bare legs, this is a classy and sophisticated number with a bit of fun.
My 80’s shoes were also a gift, but I got them about 3 years ago, and I adore them as much as I did then. I’m already a tall girl, but with those on I hit 6 foot, and feel like I could take on the world!
Ciara's Fashion Faves
Subject to change every fifteen minutes or so, my favourite outfit can prove to be a very mixed bag. Whatever mood I’m in tends to reflect what I take out of my wardrobe.
At the minute I absolutely love florals, and crop tops are definitely doing it for me, so my casual outfit of choice reflects this. I have teamed a simple H&M black dress with a bat wing floral top from New Look, which proved to be cheap and cheerful with student discount at around £11.
I matched this with simple black tights and some marmite tassel boots; you’ll either love them or hate them. I picked up my tassel boots for around £15 from student favourite Primark, surprisingly warm and comfortable I think they’ll be great for winter. Proving quite versatile, this outfit could also be worn on a night out if matched with heels and some nice jewellery.
My going out outfit is quite different. I went for some controversial harem pants, looking stylish from the front and quite like an elephant from the back, they are a bit hit and miss. However paired with some heels they prove a very comfortable and very versatile ensemble. I chose to team them with a vintage waist belt, a simple black strapless top and a sparkly waistcoat.
I love sparkly clothes at the minute and have seen some really amazing blazers and waistcoats on the high street. River Island seems to be the best in show however Primark and some of the cheaper shops have some pretty good replicas if you’re on a budget. My favourite part of this outfit is most definitely my black studded shoes. My favourite Primark buy ever, they come in at £19 and even though they lack on the stability front, they are worth every penny.
