Since I started at MMU in September I’ve noticed the vast array of individual styles and trends sported by students on the campus. Many of times I’ve found myself thinking ‘Omg I love her outfit!’ when I’ve crossed paths with someone in the Atrium Cafe or in the corridor. As well as having serious shoe envy on multiple occasions and having to stop myself from asking them where are they from and why don’t I have them on my feet? (can you tell shoes are my weakness.) I feel as though fashion is one way of expressing who you are as a person, which can be hard to do when starting the daunting journey into the unknown of uni life. You begin to question every possibility you could possibly question. So, when given the task to write a blog on ‘My MMU’ I thought it was the perfect way to showcase a small pick of campus style I’ve particularly took a liking to today!
I love Latoya’s laid back approach to her outfit today! Which is reflected in the way she summed up her overall look ‘casual!’
Her cool,vintage bomber jacket (which previously belonged to her dad) adds an edge to this minimalistic outfit and totally scores points in the varsity/back to school look!
Lisa’s amazing statement coat caught my eye immediately! Not only does the floor skimming length fit right in with the bang on trend of duster coats, that have made an appearance for AW. But the sand tone of the coat goes hand in hand with the camel colour palette of the season. After chatting with Lisa I was surprised to find the coat was a bargain buy of just £10 from a charity shop! (jealous!) Her school girl, vintage look shoes complement this outfit perfectly. But it is obvious the coat does all the talking!
P.S – Anyone else dying to go charity shopping with Lisa or just me?
I loved both Alicia’s and Laura’s overall looks today! I feel like they’ve struck the perfect balance between Autumn and Winter in their outfits – in this awkward ‘in between seasons’ period we are in. Both girls have mixed up cute, girly lace and frills, then adding a winter necessity on top, a stylish coat/jacket. Not only was this a no brainer due to Manchester having particularly dreadful weather today it also adds a variety of textures to their outfits.
