With lockdown coming to an end and the good weather just beginning, it’s time to ditch the joggers and start focussing on your summer clothes. As we transition into spring, plans are being made and life is starting to look up. What better excuse to buy new clothes than a change in seasons and a calendar full of brunches, dates and BBQs?

We all know the student budget can be a little tight, so we have outlined some key trends for the new season that will make your loan go that bit further. Discover Summer clothes that you can mix and match for lectures, iced coffee dates and nights out with your flatmates.

Oh and to celebrate the drop of your student loan, we are also offering up to 35% student discount, helping you make the most of your money and invest in some treats after a long and difficult year.

Layering shirts

Invest in a few shirts that you can throw on over a tee and jeans or a pair of shorts and a bralet. From towelling shirts, to checked style, crisp white shirts and satin blouses, you can instantly transform an outfit with one accessory.

Take a look at our shirt fit guide to find your perfect style.


Denim Shorts

Denim shorts: aka Summers’ answer to jeans. A wardrobe essential that you can dress up or down. Choose your style from casual baggy dad shorts, or tiny denim cut offs. Either way they go with basically every top in your wardrobe, no exceptions.

Co ords

Co-ords are your instant outfit solution. They solve the dilemma of trying to match an outfit together and look cool for every occasion. From floaty floral co-ords for summer BBQ and drinks in the park, to festival two pieces, we’ve got you covered. If you’re gonna invest in summer clothes this year, make sure you have co-ords on your radar.

Chunky sandals

Ditch the heels, nobody has time for that. Invest in some chunky sandals or grandad sandals for all your summer plans. These low-key shoes are a fave with off-duty models and it’s easy to see why. Perfect for your outdoor plans and they look just as cool with a girly midi dress as they do with a pair of jeans and a tee.

Basic vest tops

Invest in your basics. Stretchy vest tops are so versatile and can be switched effortlessly from your going-out-wardrobe to your chilling attire. Start by choosing colours that go with everything and then build your collection from there.
