Student Style


saleOne of the shops that have been really impressing me lately is New Look.  I've always felt that New Look missed a trick with it's target market and marketing dynamic when it came to it's plus size range, with the shop being typically associated with younger women and more on trend pieces.  It had often failed to deliver a stylish line for women over a size 18 who were already in a captured market on the high street, offering plain chunky knits or floral tents.
However, over the last couple of seasons the chain has significantly upped it's game in the PS zone. The line has it's own range as well as getting labels on board, such as AX Paris and Loverobe - offering young and stylish pieces at an affordable price.  And I mean affordable.
I would estimate I've spent early £200 in New Look in the last 3 months and packed out my wardrobe!
So, it will come as no surprise that New Look was my go-to for the January sales.
To the side is an outfit I bought for my college days, or casual trip to the shops.  I'd wanted a wine coloured pair of jeans for a while, but being plus size and a 33" leg, it was nigh on impossible... I was practically jumping for the roof when I saw these babies in the sale, at a bargain £10!
I bought a cute stone curve hem jumper and some grey houndstooth plimsols to wear with them also, and (to make it super studenty) linked it up with my Matalan scarf and satchel my younger brother bought me for Christmas.

So, cute right?  And all for a song in the January sales!  Sorry about the background... we're decorating!
Why not check out New Look now?  Their online stuff is so much better than their in store lines, so don't let that trip you had a month ago put you off.
