This month, I’ve teamed up with one of our photography editors to produce a shoot reflecting some of the fashion and styles you can find around campus. As Valentine’s Day is coming up, we asked our models a few questions about their style, and what they think is the ideal first date outfit. Thank you to the students who got involved!

John – 2nd Year English Literature

How would you describe your style?
‘Different and eclectic.’

Where do you like to shop for clothes?
‘I like Hobos in town, otherwise charity shops.’

What’s your favourite element of this look?
‘The jacket probably, or my docs.’

Can you describe your ideal first date outfit?
‘I’d go for smart casual; a button down shirt with a jumper.’

Henry – 2nd Year Human Geography

How would you describe your style?
‘Kind of random, I normally go for vintage jumpers and boots.’

Where do you like to shop for clothes?
‘Adidas, Asos and vintage stores.’

What’s your favourite element of this look?
‘My trainers.’

Can you describe your ideal first date outfit?
No comment.

Kezi – 3rd year English with TEFL

How would you describe your style?
‘I like mixing styles – I get a lot of inspiration from when I studied abroad in Korea.’

Where do you like to shop for clothes?
‘Charity shops!’

What’s your favourite element of this look?
‘The trousers, I love high-waisted stuff.’

Can you describe your ideal first date outfit?
‘Something like what I’m wearing now but with some red lipstick maybe, I think it’s most important to just be yourself.’

Ebony – 3rd year Biochemistry

How would you describe your style?
‘A mix – it depends how I feel on the day. It varies from emo, to girly, to hippie.’

Where do you like to shop for clothes?
‘Those shops that smell like incense and sell ethical, recycled, tie-dye stuff.’

What’s your favourite element of this look?
‘Definitely this shirt, although I’m torn between that and the lipstick.’

Can you describe your ideal first date outfit?
‘Not too dressy because that’s intimidating; something comfy. Maybe jeans and a funky top with some nice makeup and heeled boots.’

Kiera – 3rd year Classical Civilisation

How would you describe your style?
‘Whatever I can afford, kind of a late 80s style.’

Where do you like to shop for clothes?
‘Mostly charity shops but I also steal stuff off my parents! This jumper is from my Dad.’

What’s your favourite element of this look?
‘These dungarees, I got them from a vintage kilo sale and I love how much excess fabric there is.’

Can you describe your ideal first date outfit?
‘I have this really nice off-shoulder gypsy dress, I’d probably wear something floaty like that.’

  1. I love seeing everyone’s unique style! 🙂 I like to dress pretty casual for campus, but then I just make sure I have cute accessories to liven up my look a bit 😀 I actually recently bought this amazing leather backpack from https://www.bestbackpack.com/best-backpack-purses-women/ I’m in love with it and feel like I have to tell everyone about it! 😛 I’ve seen quite a few people rocking the backpack purse lately though, so I think it must be trending.
