Fresher's Finest With PrettyLittleThing

It's that time of year again when students-to-be are packing up to fly the nest and start a new adventure at University. As a student blogger, I've written quite a few posts now about the do's and dont's of Uni, but not many that focus on fashion. I would say my true personal style really evolved in my first or second year of Uni. It absolutely is a crucial period in terms of finding your sense of identity in terms of how you feel in your own skin, and loving what you're wearing will give you that all-important confidence boost about yourself.

If you haven't heard of PrettyLittleThing yet, firstly where have you been? And secondly, you really should! They have a student style section which gives you a huge catalogue of inspiration and cool pieces that can really make an outfit. More importantly, you can get 10% off all year round with your student discount at Unidays - bonus! PrettyLittleThing kindly sent me some pieces to style for different occasions and scenarios that will no doubt occur multiple times during your time at University. Check out what I chose below:

1. A look for when... you're out shopping with your new flatmates
Crop top: https://www.prettylittlething.com/basic-khaki-roll-sleeve-crop-t-shirt.html
Cropped jumper: https://www.prettylittlething.com/prettylittlething-grey-trim-cropped-hoodie.html
High-waisted Mom jeans: https://www.prettylittlething.com/light-wash-mom-jeans.html



Whether it's a drive to the nearest Ikea or just a mooch around town, the key to this is looking cool but being comfortable. PrettyLittleThing do some great basic crop tops which go perfectly with their high-waisted Mom jeans. Chuck on a cute cropped jumper in the chillier months and you're good to go!



2. A look for when... you need to go from day to night
Bodysuit: https://www.prettylittlething.com/black-polka-dot-blazer-jersey-thong-bodysuit.html
High waisted Mom jeans: (as above)
Black denim skirt: https://www.prettylittlething.com/black-super-shred-denim-mini-skirt.html



It happens - you have a particularly long day at Uni but you also have plans to meet some friends for drinks later. In order to save time, chuck a skirt in your bag with you and just change on the go! This top is actually a bodysuit and it is so versatile. I love how it can be dressed super casually but also looks great with a black denim skirt and some boots. 



3. A look for when... you're hungover
Jumper: https://www.prettylittlething.com/grey-marl-california-slogan-oversized-sweater.html
T-shirt: https://www.prettylittlething.com/grey-marl-weekend-tee-slogan-oversized-t-shirt.html
Leggings: https://www.prettylittlething.com/black-tie-waist-detail-legging.html



So you've been out the night before and you just need something casual and comfortable to throw on before heading to the local 'Spoons for breakfast. Guess what - PLT have you covered here too! This oversized jumper is the perfect solution when comfort is your priority. Complete the look with some leggings and trainers for the ultimate casual look. 




So that's it for my quick University haul with PLT! Which is your favourite outfit? Let me know in the comments below because I love reading your opinions. Photos all taken by Tessa Holly @ www.tessaholly.com - please go and check her out!
