Let’s Talk Student Style
The Perfect First Day Outfit
Aiko from AikoCunanan
LA based fashion blogger Aiko has always had mixed emotions about going back to school because it’s simply nerve wrecking. However, shopping for new outfits is her fave part about going back to school.
” The first day of school calls for the perfect first-day outfit and it’s the time to make a great impression” Aiko states and we couldn’t agree more.
Aiko’s Top Tips:
Find versatile items that are easy to layer up
Stock up on wardrobe essentials
A cute handbag and a cute pair of jeans is a must
It’s all about layering
Term Time Style
Lily Kate France from JoliHouse
Fashion blogger Lily’s student style is rather ‘unconventional’ as she lives at home and studies with the Open University. Nonetheless, this babe loves her pens and clothes and is a pro when it comes to fashion advice.
Lily’s fave term style outfit is a sweatshirt and a check A-Line skirt. She’s picky when it comes to slogans and therefor prefers a plain jumper. Paired with the knitted skirt and ankle boots, the outfit is a great combo of comfy and chic. We’re so in love with the 90s Clueless check knitted skirts at the moment, skirt goals fo days!

The ‘Any Season’ Dress
Rachel from Beauty And The Bird
Fashion and lifestyle blogger Rachel is all about THE DRESS. Keeping up with fashion and style is important to her and she proves a point that both are doable whilst on a student budget. It goes without saying that students are a tad restricted when it comes to picking up new clothes every season. “However, choosing the right pieces can make all the difference!” so Rachel says and we concur, 100%.
The Floral Wrap Dress caught Rachel’s attention because it’s super versatile and unique. As she pointed out “anyone can look good in yellow – it’s all about finding the perfect yellow shade to suit your skin tone!”.
