Here’s what you need to be the best dressed on campus this year.
Going to uni can be a big change and it’s a great time to have a wardrobe clearout or to define your personal style. There are lots of key moments in the student calendar that you’re going to need the perfect outfit for, from formal events to comfortable clothes to wear to those early-morning lectures or late-night library sessions.
Luckily, you can get a student discount at Weekday to help you save on some brand new clothes for uni this year! From your everyday casual clothes to what to wear on nights out, you’ll be able to find something that you love and of course, you won’t have to pay full price. With 11% student discount + free delivery, here are the things you need to add to your basket for every occasion this uni year.
You’ll want to be comfortable during your early morning lectures and throughout the day, which is why an oversized zip hoodie will be a staple in your student wardrobe.
If you’re going to be sat down for long periods of the day, you’re going to want to wear something comfortable (so no, not jeans!) and linen trousers are a great comfy option to see you through the day.
You can’t go wrong with stocking up on basics like long-sleeve tops to pair with a tracksuit or cargo pants as part of your everyday casual wear.
Sweatshirts are a must, you can wear them pretty much everywhere and they’re super easy to throw on in the morning to keep you comfy and warm for early morning starts.
Going to the pub
First things first, you’ll want to have a comfortable staple pair of jeans that you can team with everything and this pair from Weekday is great for matching with whatever nice tops you have to wear to the pub.
If the dress code is jeans and a nice top, Weekday has loads of great casual but dressy crop tops like this one that is perfect for a Friday night pub trip.
Open shirts are a great way to accessorise an otherwise plain and boring outfit and look great with jeans or cargos.
Cargos are comfy and casual and a must-have in your student wardrobe! You can wear them to the pub, to nights out and even to lectures so you’ll definitely want to make sure you’ve got a pair to hand.
This silver mesh dress is perfect for clubs or raves and is sure to get you loads of compliments asking where it’s from.
A black cargo mini skirt is a great night-out option as it’s super versatile and can be worn with anything, meaning you’ll definitely get a lot of wear out of this and will keep on reaching for it again and again.
A graphic oversized t-shirt is a must for nights out if you don’t know what to wear, they’re comfortable and casual and easy to team with jeans or cargos too.
If you’re unsure what to wear, black jeans are always a good idea. Weekday has loads of different styles of denim so you can find the perfect fit for you that you’ll want to rewear every night out.
Late-night library sessions
If you’re doing an all-nighter in the library you’ll want to be comfortable and it might start to get cold, so an oversized jumper like this one is something you’ll be able to throw on for the ultimate comfort.
Library sessions often mean hours of sitting, often in uncomfortable seats or positions, so these pull-on trousers are a great option for a comfy but stylish library look.
Tracksuits are a uni student’s best friend, so stock up on basic styles as you’ll get a lot of wear out of them.
While this jumper is great for long library sessions you can’t go wrong with its plain style and muted colour which means you can wear it time and time again and it won’t go out of style.
We’re obsessed with the rhinestones on this top which makes it an eye-catching top to pair with faux leather trousers or jeans at a house party.
If you want a more subtle party look, this silver top is a nice way to add a bit of sparkle to a plain outfit.
Whether you love them or hate them, parachute pants aren’t going anywhere. They’re a really flattering style and easy to pair with anything, so if you don’t have a pair the start of uni is a great time to try them out.
Stuck on what to wear? Throw on a graphic t-shirt for an effortless look and call it a day, it’s as easy as that.
Hopefully, this has given you an idea of some of the outfits you can add to your wardrobe ahead of freshers to see you through the new uni year! Don’t forget to use your student discount at Weekday to help you save some money on your new purchases.
