Topshop have just launched their New Term Style collection - perfect for heading back to university in September and starting the year in the hottest new trends. Here at Student Hut we’ve put together our top picks of the coolest key pieces, from quilted pink bomber jackets and comfy tracksuits to silver loafers and metallic rucksacks, and created eight outfits that will set you apart from the crowd this fresher’s week. So pack your new rucksack, strap on some statement trainers and get ready to take the term by storm.
Perfect in Pink
Even with Autumn just around the corner there’s no rush to bring out the moody palettes just yet - so pair delicate, strappy tops with a pillowy, satin puffer jacket in soft ballerina shades and add a dose of ripped denim for a look that’s both tough and feminine. The classic distressed mom jeans are going from strength to strength, so pair yours with box-fresh white trainers for a look that’s casual but cool.
Sport With Style
This is athleisure at it’s best - mix monochrome staples such as these running shorts with retro socks that remind you of school, and add a modern twist with this soft pink graphic sweatshirt. Whether you’re an avid gym bunny or just love the fitness look, this activewear outfit has you covered - even if you partied too hard to actually work out!
Be Spotted in Stripes
Mixing carefully tailored pieces such as these tapered trousers and striped shirt with sportswear can dress up a laidback look or relax a formal one - this outfit is perfect for taking you straight from an afternoon lecture to date night. The popularity of the statement trainer shows no sign of slowing down (and our feet are immensely grateful) so these suede and gold trainers will help you stand out from the crowd - kick back and let the compliments roll in.
Casual in Khaki
For the ultimate everyday outfit, the key is in the detail. Mix up your textures with silver leather loafers, a khaki silk and matte bomber jacket and ever-flattering high-waisted blue mom jeans with a twisted seam detail and a raw hem. It’s everything we love about the 80’s and 90’s in one outfit that epitomises the effortless off-duty model look.
On Wednesdays, We Wear Pink
Pink satin is back! Channel Mean Girls’ Regina George with this cosy, pink quilted bomber. We’ve given this outfit a modern twist with some pale, slouchy jeans (ripped of course), and some essential white trainers to keep this pastel look light and fresh. So fetch.
Smart doesn’t have to be boring. These gorgeous tailored trousers are really versatile and the perfect addition to your wardrobe. Dress them down for lectures by adding on-trend metallics like this space-age rucksack to fit all your notes. And naturally, who would want to be caught without a classic pair of trainers? These ones have been given a classy twist with a rose-gold stripe, this season’s most popular metallic.
This outfit is absolutely timeless. And can we please talk about these shoes? We’re so in love! Loafers are the it-shoe right now and we’re all over them - they’re so easy to throw on, you can walk for miles in them and they give any outfit a classic edge. We’ve gone smart-casual with these dark-wash skinny jeans (will they ever go out of fashion?) and a long, white, barely tailored button-down.
Ooh la la. Looking for something casual yet cultured? Luckily for us, the tracksuit is back. Those 9ams are ever so slightly more bearable when you can fashionably slouch at the back of the class! Keep it simple and sporty with this cropped white tee, and top off the outfit with a french-inspired black cap.
