For students, looking the part is very important. After all, you don’t want to roam around a campus looking like a scally, or something below your best. It would be wrong to say that people would judge you on your style, but your clothes can certainly tell your fellow students a lot about the way you carry yourself, whether it be high-maintenance with designer labels or being laid-back with an emphasis on comfort.
The Student Review is looking to see what clothes the students of today are rockin’, and for this edition we speak to Charlotte Mitchell to see which brand labels define her own style!
“My wardrobe has a few recurring brand names. I often shop at River Island, Topshop and a couple of other places at Liverpool ONE, as there are plenty of options and the style of clothes in those shops are suited to my fashion tastes. That being said, how the clothes look and feel are the priority for me, so it isn’t just about the brands!
“Starting on top, I have quite a few T-shirts in my collection, with there being a variety depending on the weather and who I’m with. If we’re talking general day-to-day in the summer, though, I’ll mainly be sporting River Island tees. These stand out for me just because they are really comfortable, and the style, the colour and the general feel to them are suited to my tastes.
“If it’s a bit warmer, though, you’ll find me wearing a dress when I’m out and about. I very rarely wear dresses, mind you, but if I am, chances are that you’ll see me in a dress from Topshop, because the shop has plenty of different varieties of colour and style which I like.
“If we’re talking about the colder months of the year, then I’ll always have a coat on, and I have a couple in my wardrobe from Miss Selfridge and Zara as I like the high quality material. To combat the winter blues, the dress stays in my room and I’ll be wearing traditional trousers. Topshop is the go-to place for these too; I’m definitely someone who prefers jeans over, say, leggings, and I get my jeans from Topshop because they are a comfortable fit; they have the exact waist size and leg length to fit to my liking.
“At the bottom, I’ll mainly wear trainers if I’m having a day out, and Miss Selfridge has some really nice designer trainers. If I’m playing sports or going to the gym, though, I find that JD Sports have some more comfortable styles, which help a great deal after spending a good amount of time running on the treadmill!
“Finally, my wardrobe has a couple of little extras too. I enjoy wearing necklaces, and if the sun’s out and the city is roasting, you’ll spot me wearing sunglasses. When it comes to any accessories like these, I get them from ASOS, because there are loads of different types and designers to choose from.
“So, that’s my Style Profile; if you happen to be roaming through Liverpool city centre and you see a girl sporting the brands above, chances are that it will be me who you’ve spotted!”
