H&M:PARTY ACCESSORIES TO DESIRE

1. THE PARTY SOCK
A pointy black patent pump is basically the LBD of the shoe <span class=”woR”>wardrobe</span><span class=”woD”>A wardrobe is a standing closet used for storing clothes. Many people[who?] argue that wardrobes are different in use and style of closets, but they were created by the French to be used as a closet. The earliest wardrobe was a chest, and it was not until some degree of luxury was attained in regal palaces and the castles of powerful nobles that separate accommodation was provided for the apparel of the great. The name of wardrobe was then given to a room in which the wall-space was filled with closets and lockers, the drawer being a comparatively modern invention[citation needed]. From these cupboards and lockers the modern wardrobe, with its hanging spaces, sliding shelves and drawers, evolved slowly.</span>. Put an extra-festive spin on the classic <span class=”woR”>style</span><span class=”woD”>Style is a manner of doing or presenting things, especially a fashionable one.</span>
with a chic sock pairing in a sheer polka-dot pattern.
2. THE 80S GLAM GOAL
Take holiday dressing to the next level by channeling a bit of 80s glam. Go all-in party with a glitter-ball <span class=”woR”>dress</span><span class=”woD”>A dress (also known as a frock or a gown) is a garment consisting of a skirt with an attached bodice (or a matching bodice giving the effect of a one-piece garment).</span> and a pair of big sparkly earrings. Dare to shine bright, yes – like a diamond.
3. THE CHAIN BAG
Let the golden chain-link of a small shoulder bag make a statement of its own. Accessorize your afterdark look by wearing it nonchalantly wrapped around the wrist. Minimal effort, high impact.
4. THE HOT HOSIERY
The fashion girl’s alternative to basic black tights is spelled lace. Unexpected hosiery is a foolproof way of giving your party wardrobe an upgrade – without the risk of overspending.
5. THE EXTRA EARWEAR
You’ll still be wearing these sculptural earrings long after the holidays are over. The decorative danglers are the extra in any ensemble and make a smooth transition from day to dance floor.
6. THE DIAMOND DO
When you’ve picked out what to wear, it’s time to add the glitter. Adorn yourself in dazzling layers of bracelets and mirror the glimmer with a crystal-embellished bag. Never hold back on the sparkle.
7. THE LUXE SCRUNCHIE
Need a super-quick hair fix? Make a messy top knot and secure it with a lustrous velvet scrunchie. This party-ready hair style is cool and quirky, yet elegant enough to elevate your evening look.
8. THE BELT TRICK
A waist belt is the sort of accessory that can make an entire outfit, transforming a dress or blazer from simple to stunning in a second. Choose a wide, waist-cinching version for a fashion-forward approach.
9. THE CLUTCH BAG(S)
Nothing says cocktail party elegance more than a classic envelope clutch bag, or two – if you’re feeling adventurous. Now here’s the question: solid color or sparkly gold and glitter? Tough call.
10. THE SPARKLY HOOPS
These crystal-encrusted hoops are guaranteed to take your look to a new stylish dimension. Team the gleaming jewels with pared-back suiting, tapping into that ultra-luxe black tie glamour.

ASOS:STYLE LESSONS FROM CHRISTMAS FILMS

We all know that our fave festive flicks can help soothe any post-party feels, but have you ever noticed the <span class=”woR”>style</span><span class=”woD”>Style is a manner of doing or presenting things, especially a fashionable one.</span> inspiration they serve up? From cosy knitwear to party
<span class=”woR”>dress</span><span class=”woD”>A dress (also known as a frock or a gown) is a garment consisting of a skirt with an attached bodice (or a matching bodice giving the effect of a one-piece garment).</span>, these iconic films offer a lot of sartorial suggestions on top of their tear-jerking storylines and heart-warming moments. Here are five key looks we love and how you can wear them IRL.
The Holiday
From sunny LA to snowy Surrey, The Holiday’s Amanda always looks on-point, even while she’s having a midlife crisis after her breakup (how does she look that good in sweatpants?). You may not be planning to swap lives with a stranger any time soon, but you can defo copy elements of her sophisticated style. Take her shearling-trimmed coat. We can’t guarantee you’ll nab a dashing Jude Law lookalike in it, but a similar faux-shearling number is an investment piece that’s guaranteed to keep you warm in style.
The Nightmare Before Christmas
Now, when it comes to naming your favourite time of year, for many people it’s a toss-up between Halloween and <span class=”woR”>Christmas</span><span class=”woD”>Christmas or Christmas Day (Old English: Crīstesm?sse, meaning “Christ’s Mass”) is an annual festival commemorating the birth of Jesus Christ,[7][8] observed most commonly on December 25[4][9][10] as a religious and cultural celebration among billions of people around the world.</span>. Director Tim Burton was clearly caught in a similar conundrum when he decided to release the merry-yet-macabre animated flick The Nightmare Before Christmas. The film tells the tale of Jack Skellington and humanoid ragdoll, Sally. Everything about Sally has been sewn together, including her patchwork dress (which eerily matches the stitching around her eyes). For a spookily good look, go for a similar number like this street-styler. Rock it at a party and you’ll have fellow guests shouting, ‘What’s this? What’s this?!’ with jealousy and excitement.
Home Alone 2: Lost in New York
After a day or two of full-on family time over Christmas, you may have wished you too were lost in New York like Kevin in Home Alone. Aside from being jealous of his fun-filled time in the Big Apple (until he runs into the bad guys, of course), there’s also plenty to be envious of in his winter lineup – like his adorable bobble hat. Trust us when we say a beanie will greatly improve your cold-weather life. And it looks just as good on grown-ups, as this street-styler proves. Wear it on the weekend with jeans and a bomber jacket, ya filthy animals.
Love Actually
Hands up if Love Actually makes you cry every time? The Richard Curtis classic gives us all the Christmas feels – and plenty of seriously stylish moments. Keira Knightley’s character, in particular, sleighs throughout the movie. When she opens the door to her husband’s close (and may we add terrible) friend, who proceeds to tell her he loves her, she gives us a valuable fashion lesson: knits need not be frumpy. Find one that falls off the shoulder and, hey presto, your off-duty weekend look is dialled up a notch. Take your cue from this street-styler and wear it with denim and black accessories. To us, this is perfect.
It’s a Wonderful Life
The classic to beat all classics, it’s impossible to avoid It’s a Wonderful Life at Christmas. George Bailey and his life story may be the focus of the film, but Mary (played by Donna Reed) and her amazing costumes are also big stars of the film. The tiered dress she wears in the dance scene is particularly major and it moves so beautifully as she shimmies around with George. A similar ruffly style will look amazing as you bust a move over party season. Plus, as you can see from this street-style look, it works for daytime with a sweater and trainers. It sure is a wonderful look.

ASOS:5 OF THE BEST COCKTAIL DRESSES

Yep, the party season is officially upon us, but if you’ve still got that nagging ‘no idea what to wear’ feeling then fear not. We’ve pulled together five of our favourite cocktail dresses you’ll want to wear right away (even if it happens to be a Tuesday afternoon). Because what better time is there to be dripping in sequins and glitter if not to the 56 parties you’re attending during the festive months?
Seq-wins everything
All things sparkly are having a moment and we’re so here for it. This party mini just about ticks all the boxes – wear it with heels for cocktails or throw on a pair of chunky trainers for a contrast that is both comfy and so right now. It’s a win-win.
Flower power
A timeless classic, but make it floral. If you’re looking for a mini <span class=”woR”>dress</span><span class=”woD”>A dress (also known as a frock or a gown) is a garment consisting of a skirt with an attached bodice (or a matching bodice giving the effect of a one-piece garment).</span>
with maximum impact, look no further. Just add a colour-popping lipstick, a metallic clutch and heels and we’ll see you on the dancefloor.
Soft as velvet
It’s the fabric quite literally giving us all the feels ATM – and, let’s be honest, velvet = festive AF. But you know what’s even more festive? An emerald green velvet dress, so you can walk around looking like a very fancy <span class=”woR”>Christmas</span><span class=”woD”>Christmas or Christmas Day (Old English: Crīstesm?sse, meaning “Christ’s Mass”) is an annual festival commemorating the birth of Jesus Christ,[7][8] observed most commonly on December 25[4][9][10] as a religious and cultural celebration among billions of people around the world.</span> bauble.
Midas touch
We’re getting major Bond Girl vibes off this one and if you too have been longing for a bit of 70s disco glam, we’ve got news for you… now is your time. This LGD is here to show it truly ‘tis the season of more is more.
Shine bright
‘That’s too many sequins’ – said no one ever. Be the disco ball of the party in this little number. You’ll have everyone dancing around you, but, then again, it’s no party if you aren’t there. This rainbow showstopper promises to make one helluva entrance.

MISSGUIDED:office christmas party looks for the cool girl

It’s officially party season, which means your work <span class=”woR”>Christmas</span><span class=”woD”>Christmas or Christmas Day (Old English: Crīstesm?sse, meaning “Christ’s Mass”) is an annual festival commemorating the birth of Jesus Christ,[7][8] observed most commonly on December 25[4][9][10] as a religious and cultural celebration among billions of people around the world.</span> party is just around the corner. Not sure what to do or what to wear? Rule 101: don’t shag your boss. Second, find a fire outfit to make sure you’re more lit than a Christmas tree. We’ve rounded up this quick guide to save you from those “I have nothing to wear” for the office Christmas party mini breakdowns.
Office to bar
Let’s face it, just because we’re not Bey doesn’t mean we can’t pull off a fire mini <span class=”woR”>dress</span><span class=”woD”>A dress (also known as a frock or a gown) is a garment consisting of a skirt with an attached bodice (or a matching bodice giving the effect of a one-piece garment).</span>. When your office Christmas party is all about the drinks, get yourself a figure-hugging dress if you want to show off your curves. After all, this is your chance before all the Christmas food and binge-eating commences over the Christmas period. Opt for a Bardot style to keep things classic or choose a blazer dress to add an extra edge without over-revealing. These sort of dresses are a sure fire way to suit wherever the night takes you: Consider them good dresses to make bad stories in.
Desk drinking before heading to town? Step away from the emails…Anything you send now will be like a drunk text but 100% worse. You can avoid a f*ckboy… Colleagues, not so much.
The free bar
If you have one of those work Christmas dos where it’s a free bar and you just know you’re going to end up a little (or a lot) worse for wear, then this is the outfit for you. Stay clear of playsuits and <span class=”woR”>jumpsuit</span><span class=”woD”>Jumpsuit originally referred to the functional one-piece garments used by parachuters/skydivers, but has come to be used as a common term for any one-piece garment with sleeves and legs.</span>
s that will only end up testing your patience when you’ve officially broken the seal and, let’s be honest, there’s nothing worse than having to completely strip off every time you need a wee. Plus, there’s only so many times you can ask ‘can you undo my zip for me’ to a random gal waiting in the queue. Co-ords keep things fresh when everyone’s turning up to the party in dresses.
And if you’re one of the lucky ones with a free bar, that guy from accounts that you think is weird, who suddenly looks cute 27 bottles of prosecco in, is not the one hun – run away.
Black tie event
Got a black tie event? Congrats, babe, someone’s doing well! Don’t dig out your old prom dress or ball gown. You want to look like an absolute boss babe whilst still looking like you’re ready to down shots at the bar with your co-workers. Try the ultimate trend for the party season: It’s all about soft liquid metallics and lashing of sequins. Maxi and midi dresses are often a little more restrictive than a playsuit or mini dress, so don’t feel like you need to keep your hemlines below your knees just because it’s a posh do.
But remember, just because your boss is dancing on the table, doesn’t mean you should! Another rule 101, stick to the actual ground when you want to have a bit of dance off – especially at a black-tie event. You can thank us later.
The plus one
Your boyfriend has invited you to his work’s do. You need to look seriously hot whilst also looking respectable enough to gain some good reputation with his co-workers and bosses. This is the time to add-to-bag a jumpsuit. They give you shape, length and also a bit of integrity in case you end up having a few too many. Vertical striped styles add some height even if you’re perfectly petite. Clash your textures with a faux fur jacket to add more glitz and you’re good to go. It’s really that simple.
…and one word of warning. If you think karaoke is a genius idea when you’re absolutely smashed: think again, babe. Remember the scene in Bridget Jones when she’s wearing a tinsel crown, a cigarette in her hand and she’s in full-on singing mode, then suddenly Hugh Grant walks in? Don’t be that person. There will be no Hugh Grant casually passing by – only your boss. No one wants the office walk of shame when Monday rolls around.

Eat, drink and be Missguided. You’re welcome, babe.

ASOS:HOW TO WEAR 70s DRESSES NOW

The 70s is one of our fave decades. It brought us Queen, bell-bottom flares, Charlie’s Angels, disco sequins… need we go on? It also gave us some seriously good dress options that are mainstays in our closets today. To celebrate our love of the free-spirited era, here are five key dress <span class=”woR”>style</span><span class=”woD”>Style is a manner of doing or presenting things, especially a fashionable one.</span> and how to wear them now.
That’s all folk
Floaty <span class=”woR”>dress</span><span class=”woD”>A dress (also known as a frock or a gown) is a garment consisting of a skirt with an attached bodice (or a matching bodice giving the effect of a one-piece garment).</span> in folksy patchworks, paisley prints and homespun embroideries were everywhere in the 70s thanks to the peace-lovin’ hippies. These frocks are of course perf for vay-cay but, as this street-styler proves, if you swap in some knee-high <span class=”woR”>boots</span><span class=”woD”>A boot is a type of footwear and a specific type of shoe. Most boots mainly cover the foot and the ankle, while some also cover some part of the lower calf. Some boots extend up the leg, sometimes as far as the knee or even the hip. Most boots have a heel that is clearly distinguishable from the rest of the sole, even if the two are made of one piece.</span> they can totally work for cold weather, too.
Jump day
The turtleneck jumper dress is another treasure we can thank the 70s for. What would we do without this cosy style to slip into on those chilly mornings? This street-styler is giving us major inspo to make it a modern affair by wearing with wide-leg jeans and white boots. Carry a perspex bag for extra style points.
Safari park
The safari trend that ruled through the 70s was all about chunky belts, patch pockets and neutral shades. Easy to pull off yet totally put together at the same time, a belted dress with this sort of vibe is ideal for your 9-5 line-up. We especially love this sleek leather version. A+.
Flower hour
A 70s round-up wouldn’t be complete without a mention of flower power. Petal prints bring an instant uplift to your 24/7 style, espesh on a floaty silhouette. A dark iteration is a good option for winter – add a leather jacket and lace-up boots for an 80s-era punk mash-up.
Heavy shifting
The decade wasn’t all floor-skimming hems and hippy-dippy details. The early 70s also loved slick shift dresses, too. A white iteration is an on-point option for those obsessed with a more pared-back style. Just add black tights and high boots to counter those winter winds.

ASOS:STYLE LESSONS FROM THE CHILLING ADVENTURES OF SABRINA

The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is our new Netflix obsession. OK, at first we were shook by how scary it is in comparison to the original 90s version. But then we quickly fell in love with the show’s sinister storyline, intriguing characters, underlying social messages and – of course – its bewitching style. From headbands to gothic lace, ‘Brina and her crew serve up some serious <span class=”woR”>fashion</span><span class=”woD”>Fashion is a popular style or practice, especially in clothing, footwear, accessories, makeup, body piercing, or furniture. Fashion is a distinctive and often habitual trend in the style in which a person dresses. It is the prevailing styles in behaviour and the newest creations of textile designers.</span> inspo for our winter repertoire. Here are five key trends that will bring the magic to your look, stat.
Hairbands are our new hero
TBF, Sabrina’s hairband should have its own shoutout in the show’s credits as one of the main characters. Whether she’s hanging with her human friends or battling the Weird Sisters at the Academy of the Unseen Arts, her headband is ever-present. If your outfit is giving you more trouble than Batibat the sleep demon, this is one <span class=”woR”>accessories</span><span class=”woD”>A fashion accessory is an item used to contribute, in a secondary manner, to the wearer’s outfit, often used to complete an outfit and chosen to specifically complement the wearer’s look.</span> that magically pulls it all together. Plus, it gets extra points for banishing a bad hair day, too.
Lace summons the drama
There are lots of lace looks throughout the show to help bring the gothic realness. Our fave is when Sabrina wears her mother’s wedding <span class=”woR”>dress</span><span class=”woD”>A dress (also known as a frock or a gown) is a garment consisting of a skirt with an attached bodice (or a matching bodice giving the effect of a one-piece garment).</span> to her friend’s Halloween party (and her dark baptism, which she pops to afterwards – as you do). Even though Halloween is over, we might just cast a spell with a similar style at one of our party-season soirees.
A slinky slip dress casts a spell
Although the new version of Sabrina has none of the lols of the Melissa Joan Hart version, it does have some nice 90s fashion moments, like the old show. Take the slip dress ’Brina magically changes into at her dark baptism. While the scene had us on the edge of our seats, we must admit the oh-so-pretty frock did distract us for a sec. We smell another scarily good party option. Make like this street styler and pair it with cosy shearling to beat the chill.
A red coat makes everything better
The show is dark AF – both in its creepy storyline and overall colour scheme. But throughout, Sabrina’s ’fits manage to brighten things up with some fresh autumnal hues. In particular, her red coat cheers up even the most dreary of scenes, giving us a lesson in how outerwear can enliven our cold-weather lives. We’ll be throwing a cosy scarlet number over everything this season for a frightfully good look.
Hot under the collar
We must confess, the Weird Sisters are our new style icons. Yes, their ‘harrowing’ of Sabrina is pretty evil – but they look so good while they’re doing it. As well as dark lips and up-dos, the evil trio have reintroduced us to the power of the Peter Pan collar – and we’re not sure what we were doing without it. Wear a collar bib under jumpers and dresses already in your wardrobe and, hey presto: a tired looks gets transformed. Magic indeed.

MISSGUIDED:the pay day edit

I don’t want to alarm anybody but… It’s basically <span class=”woR”>Christmas</span><span class=”woD”>Christmas or Christmas Day (Old English: Crīstesm?sse, meaning “Christ’s Mass”) is an annual festival commemorating the birth of Jesus Christ,[7][8] observed most commonly on December 25[4][9][10] as a religious and cultural celebration among billions of people around the world.</span>! Yeah, your last paycheck should probably be focused on buying all your Christmas presents. BUT, it’s December, so you need to make sure you have enough outfits to have you covered for all the social events you’re going to be going to over the next few weeks. Hey, the holidays are all about spreading the love, right? And we’re all about loving yourself first. It’s called priorities, babe. Not sure what you should be buying into this month? Let us give you some inspiration, courtesy of our fave celebs, with our ultimate pay day edit.
Sequin Dresses
Sound the klaxons and line up the tequilas, ’cause party season is HERE. We love a sequin <span class=”woR”>dress</span><span class=”woD”>A dress (also known as a frock or a gown) is a garment consisting of a skirt with an attached bodice (or a matching bodice giving the effect of a one-piece garment).</span> at the best of times, but at Christmas, they’re pretty much compulsory. The more attention-grabbing the better: So, choose from plunging necklines, backless designs, and side-splits for your out-out dress. As long as it’s embellished, sequinned or metallic, you are nailing the festive dress code. There’s no such thing as too much at Christmas – Therefore, team your dress with metallic barely-theres and a sequin clutch. Shine bright.
Gym Leggings
The festive season is all fun and games until it’s January, you’re hungover, cold, skint, and you can’t do up any of your jeans thanks to over-indulging on the roasties at Christmas dinner. Prepare in advance by investing in activewear. Whether you’re actually planning on a “new-year new-me” gym membership, or you just want some pants with an elasticated waist, gym leggings are what you need. Go matchy-matchy with the coordinating gym bra for an outfit that will have you looking like an athlete.
Satin Pyjamas
New pyjamas for Christmas eve are an essential tradition (basically anything that means you can open a present a day early is A-OK with us). Striped, button-down pyjama sets are super sweet and also perfect for chilling out in on Christmas morning. Or, if your Christmas eve has more of an “adult sleepover” kinda vibe, then opt for some new lace lingerie and a sexy satin teddy or cami pyjama set. You’re the only present he should want to unwrap, amirite?
Tailored Jumpsuits
Give your dress the night off ‘cause tailored <span class=”woR”>jumpsuit</span><span class=”woD”>Jumpsuit originally referred to the functional one-piece garments used by parachuters/skydivers, but has come to be used as a common term for any one-piece garment with sleeves and legs.</span> are having a serious moment. This is the perfect look for your office Christmas party – Cause even if you do have a few too many pornstar martinis you don’t have to worry about slipping over in your heels and flashing your knickers to your boss… Phew! Nail two trends at once with a sequinned, tailored jumpsuit. Or, in contrast go for a smart monochrome look that can see you from after work drinks to a full-blown night out. Winner.
Day Dresses
Does anything say Christmas like swanning round your nan’s kitchen with a glass of wine looking fire for absolutely no reason? It’s kind of the rules that you have to get dressed up for Christmas day, even if you’re only seeing your fam, so make sure you’ve started planning your outfit already. Smarten up a casual dress with heels and eye-catching jewellery. Or alternatively, make your out-out dress more family party appropriate by wearing with heeled boots and an oversized jacket.

ASOS:STYLISH CITY: MARRAKECH

The magic of Morocco is undeniable. From the shores of Essaouira to the sands of the Sahara, there’s a buffet of destinations ready to cure any bout of wanderlust. The top of your agenda: the chaotic cultural hub of Marrakech. A former imperial city, your senses will come alive with everything from awe-inspiring mosques to medieval medias, picturesque gardens and mouth-watering tagines. So, here’s what to wear, where to stay and what to do when visiting.
Wear this
What to wear while exploring the winding souks and vibrant medinas of the old city? In this cultural playground, it’s considerate to go for something modest to respect local traditions and help you feel more connected to the city’s story. Take full advantage of your stopover in Africa with this zebra-print maxi <span class=”woR”>dress</span><span class=”woD”>A dress (also known as a frock or a gown) is a garment consisting of a skirt with an attached bodice (or a matching bodice giving the effect of a one-piece garment).</span> (the subtle <span class=”woR”>skirt</span><span class=”woD”>A skirt is a tube- or cone-shaped garment that hangs from the waist or hips and covers all or part of the legs. The hemline of skirts can vary from micro to floor-length and can vary according to cultural conceptions of modesty and aesthetics as well as the wearer’s personal taste, which can be influenced by such factors as fashion and social context. Most skirts are self-standing garments, but some skirt-looking panels may be part of another garment such as leggings, shorts, and swimsuits.</span> splits are a perfect balance of covered yet breezy). Complement the look with print-clashing <span class=”woR”>accessories</span><span class=”woD”>A fashion accessory is an item used to contribute, in a secondary manner, to the wearer’s outfit, often used to complete an outfit and chosen to specifically complement the wearer’s look.</span> in light dusty tones – let’s take creative licence and dub this colour palette, ‘Sahara sand’. Inspired.
Stay here
For a truly unique accommodation experience, nothing can beat staying in a traditional Moroccan riad. ‘What’s a riad’, you ask? Well, the word is an Arab translation of ‘garden’, but it’s so much more than that. Picture stepping into your own secret courtyard highlighted by a water fountain feature, surrounded by foliage and floored with intricate coloured tiles – all in the centre of your home. Be warned, though, once you step inside, you’re not going to want to leave. But your feed will thank you when you do.
Visit this
You can’t visit Morocco without visiting a medina, or ‘old city’. And if there’s one to tick off your list, it has to be the Medina of Marrakech. It’s the heart of the city and depending whether you choose to visit during the day or night, you’re in for a vastly different experience.

Take the day to get lost in the exotic (and hectic) alleyways of the souks. Expect narrow winding streets lined with stalls selling everything from spices and tea to hand-woven carpets, traditional Moroccan clothing, local sweets and live (and often not-so-alive) animals. Haggling is expected, so go low.

As the sun sets, head to the Jemaa el-Fnaa – the large open square in the centre of the medina. Fall into another world with a buzz of snake charmers, monkey tamers, and henna tattoo artists performing and hustling for the tourists. Beware: if you so much as take a flick, the locals will demand a hot tip. So keep your phone close and your wits closer.

MISSGUIDED:wtf do i wear for uni?

Uni can be a pretty mental time, and the last thing you wanna be thinking about it what to wear. Our Freshers’ tips would be to prep your <span class=”woR”>wardrobe</span><span class=”woD”>A wardrobe is a standing closet used for storing clothes. Many people[who?] argue that wardrobes are different in use and style of closets, but they were created by the French to be used as a closet. The earliest wardrobe was a chest, and it was not until some degree of luxury was attained in regal palaces and the castles of powerful nobles that separate accommodation was provided for the apparel of the great. The name of wardrobe was then given to a room in which the wall-space was filled with closets and lockers, the drawer being a comparatively modern invention[citation needed]. From these cupboards and lockers the modern wardrobe, with its hanging spaces, sliding shelves and drawers, evolved slowly.</span>
before you head to Freshers’ week so you’ve got all your uni outfits ticked off for every event. This is what to wear for university and when.
Moving In Day
Student clothing is supposed to be COMFY. Chances are, you’ll be squished into the back of your parent’s car with boxes poking into you from every angle. You’ll also need to be comfy enough to lift some sh*t up a few flights of stairs in your new student digs. But don’t turn up in a sweaty old gym top from 2007, you gotta make that good first impression. Opt for cool casual vibes with a matchy matchy co-ord. You’ll be meeting your new housemates and once your parents have left, it might be a speedy relocation to the SU to get to know each other over a large, cold Pinot. You made it here, maybe you cried saying bye to Mum and Dad, you deserve it girl.

Registering
At some point, you’ll be asked to turn up at the main uni building to register. This also means, you lucky thing, you will get to have your picture taken for the photo ID that you’ll be stuck with for the next 3-4 years. You’ll be bumping into loads of people who could potentially be your new BFF, so go casual but cool when you’re signing up for any clubs or societies on registration day. A basic bodycon <span class=”woR”>dress</span><span class=”woD”>A dress (also known as a frock or a gown) is a garment consisting of a <span class=”woR”>skirt</span><span class=”woD”>A skirt is a tube- or cone-shaped garment that hangs from the waist or hips and covers all or part of the legs. The hemline of skirts can vary from micro to floor-length and can vary according to cultural conceptions of modesty and aesthetics as well as the wearer’s personal taste, which can be influenced by such factors as fashion and social context. Most skirts are self-standing garments, but some skirt-looking panels may be part of another garment such as leggings, shorts, and swimsuits.</span> with an attached bodice (or a matching bodice giving the effect of a one-piece garment).</span> is literally for every occasion and can save you when the ultimate “what do I wear” breakdown comes. Swap your trainers for heeled boots for an instant easy glam look when you relocate to the pub.

Lectures
Unfortunately, the first week of uni isn’t just parties and nights out, and your first lecture will soon roll around. WTF do you wear? Pack layers when sorting your uni ‘drobe, you’re going to need something easy for the commute or walk to uni, but still look killer. Up steps, the cami dress. Big night out? Cami dress. Day in the boiling hot library? Cami dress. Lecture? Cami dress (with cute boots and oversized tee layering). No matter what you’re up to, you can always rely on the trusty cami dress. Don’t forget you’ll also need a decent size bag for your MacBook and fresh stationary.

Make sure your freshers’ week outfits are fire. We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again – Be prepared for your big freshers’ night out with a fire dress. We all need that staple in our wardrobe that will have us covered. In a new city, with new people, when you have no idea where you’re going or who you’re going with, you need a trusty dress to be your BFF and guide you through the first few weeks in a new place. An asymmetrical dress is always a good shout for the formal affair or a simple little strappy co-ord for your average BNO. Unless it’s a toga party that is, you’ll need some old bed sheets for that one.
