Autumnal University Lookbook - A Week of Outfits

It’s been a long time since I brought you an outfits post, and since then I’ve actually made a lot of new purchases. I really enjoy putting together outfits and trying out different combinations on a daily basis, and so I thought I’d share this more on my blog. If you’d like to see what my typical outfits are for a week of university then make sure you keep reading, especially since there are some incredibly affordable pieces included!


Mondays are all about comfort clothes – the last thing you want on a cold and gloomy morning of working is to be wearing something uncomfortable. My go-to was this pair of black leggings from Zara, which are incredibly easy to wear yet the khaki and white stripes down the side still add a bit of interest. As it wasn’t too cold, I opted for the layered look with a grey jumper and my denim jacket, which has been a staple of mine this autumn. After adding my Timberland boots and this huge checked and houndstooth scarf, I was all good to go and prepared for the potentially cold weather. Although outfits like this are super simple, I love the effect of adding a statement scarf, and it definitely helps to keep me warm as well!


It’s no secret that I adore wearing a beret from time to time, and so this entire outfit was styled around this gorgeous one from Primark that is grey and embellished with pearls. I paired it with my grey structured, oversized coat, which is a staple in my wardrobe that I’ve worn a lot this year. My white crotched jumper is a slouchy, comfortable wear that looks really nice tucked into jeans, which again have stripes down the side just to add some difference. The final touch was my Converse and my outfit was complete, and I actually love how it turned out!


If anyone was to ask me then I’d definitely say that I’m more of a dresses and skirts person than trousers, and so it was about time that a dress and tights made an appearance in my lookbook. Shirt dresses are definitely popular right now, and they’re also incredibly easy to wear, and this monochromatic one that I own is the perfect versatile piece. I added a black belt to synch it in at the waist and make it more flattering, and also rolled up the sleeves (although you can’t tell since my coat and scarf take up most of the photo – it was a really cold day!) Pairing this with some black tights and boots was the final step and my outfit was complete!


A jumper and skirt is my go-to winter outfit combination, since there are so many varieties and ways that you can style different pieces in this way, as well as being a nice change from always wearing jeans. This gorgeous, block-striped jumper was in Primark’s ‘new in Glamour’ section and I just couldn’t resist it! I never normally opt for things that are red but this jumper really stood out to me, and it’s also incredibly cosy for the colder months. I tucked it into a black leather skirt and popped on some tights and my leather Chelsea boots, and that’s the outfit complete – very simple but a really pretty way of styling a jumper!


For the final day, I really wanted to wear something a bit more out of my comfort zone. These navy and lilac checked trousers from Primark (you can sense a theme running throughout this post!) are definitely different to what I normally wear, but I instantly fell in love with them in store. The wide leg is something that I rarely wear (and I did have to crop the trousers as they were much too long for me), and I was also afraid that the paper-bag style around the waist wouldn’t be very flattering, but this actually makes them very unusual and on-trend. I paired them with a muted pink fitted jumper, which compliments the trousers nicely, and that’s all that was required to create this pretty, put-together look!

I hope you enjoyed seeing these different outfits, as I really enjoyed putting this post together for you! I'd love to know which one is your favourite, so make sure you let me know down in the comments! Thank you very much for reading and I'll see you on Thursday with another blog post!
