Freshers Week Part Two: Pub with the New Housemates

Freshers, Style, Fashion, The Fashion Lover, What to WearYou’ve just moved in – there are still some things that you haven’t unpacked and you’ve only managed to update your Twitter once (with a selfie tagged “I’m here! #timetoparty”)

And your new housemates – who are all as uncertain as you are – suggest that you head to the local for a getting-to-know-each-other pint. Please note at this point that this will be the one and only time you ever go in to that local pub. Give it two days and you will have discovered the Student Union, Wetherspoons and another less-local dive are much better.

So what do you wear for this foray in to uncharted territory? It’s hardly a sequins-and-heels affair, but you don’t want to be rolling up in Uggs and a hoodie (save it for the hangovers).

Get yourself a pair of Gap jeans. They will honestly last you the entirety of university. The 1969 always skinny jeans, £39.95, are a great dark denim are a heavy enough fabric to be super-durable. Take Gap’s advice though, wash inside-out in cold water before wearing to preserve the colour and stop it rubbing.

Team with a sweet cream blouse, blazer (roll up the sleeves for a more casual take) and some shoe boots/sandals for a simpler look. Add a slick of lip gloss (try a tinted one like Topshop’s gloss in Surf Luxe, £4, for extra pow) and you’re ready to go! I’ve got a bit of an obsession with midi rings at the moment, and love to wear loads. Get yourself to Topshop and buy some multi-packs and some of their quirkier midi rings (I love their fox stone midi ring, £4) to stack up.
