How To



Uni is just around the corner. We know, we’re sorry to break it to you, but it’s probably about time you at least began to think about getting organised… right? We’re not talking about buying stationary, though. More important than that is freshers week.

Whether you’re going for the first time, or if it’s your last year, you want to make a good impression – this is a given. Whether you’re trying to make a good start or just reminding everyone how well dressed you are, let us take the edge off a bit while you scramble to get all that summer work done and give you a definitive guide of what to wear during freshers week this year.


When it comes to putting together the essential outfit for freshers, it’s crucial that you don’t overlook even the smallest of details when it comes to making a great impression. That’s why choosing the right footwear is an absolute must. There are lots of ways you can go about this, but a good pair of trainers are sure to go down a treat with the right outfit.


Best thing is, you can wear them in pretty much any situation – pair them with a t-shirt and jeans and you’re sorted for getting about campus. Add a smart shirt and you’re ready to go out. Simple. Something like these Nike Air Max ought to do the trick.


There is perhaps no item more versatile in a man’s wardrobe than a decent pair of black jeans, which of course makes them a must-have for this freshers week. Regardless of where you are or what you’re doing, these bad boys will have you covered.


Pick something in a flattering slim fit like these Levis 511 and not only will you look great, but they’re rugged and built to last, which means you’re really getting your money’s worth.

Basic T-Shirt

Like we said before, it’s really important not to overlook the little details when it comes to making the most of your first impressions with what you’re wearing for freshers. Equally so, it’s crucial not to overlook the beauty of the basic pieces.


A plain t-shirt can really go a long way, and less is often more, as they say. Try this Ralph Lauren crew neck with some black jeans and some trainers and you’ll have a minimalistic outfit that will stay grab everyone’s attention.


When you’re not going out, or stuck inside catching up on any work, you’ll no doubt be outside, and therefore will need a jacket.


Seems obvious, we know, but something minimal like this Luke 1977 jacket will be perfect for the job, as not only will it keep your warm, but can easily be layered with a number of items like a hoodie or a flannel shirt, making a versatile piece that you should definitely consider for freshers week.
