Student looks; time for a wardrobe refill

Who would have thought summer would go so fast? With the return to college and university (or perhaps you are just starting) fast approaching it's time to fill your wardrobe with all the student essentials so you can look gorgeous whilst dashing to those lectures. 
My key to a good student wardrobe is to go for quality not quantity. I would much rather buy that £50 jacket than have lots of £15 one's that have no shape and look awful!
Invest in a NUS card, student discount is a saviour
 With autumn approaching now is the perfect time to ease into the new season so when the hottest A/W13 trends arise you will be right on top! 
Like with a job, dressing for university is extremely important. Sure you can have your days off but the more fabulous you look, the more fabulous you feel which reflects on your attention span, day and quality of your work (well that's my philosophy!).

Looking smart shows you have made the transition from school/college as a teenager who throws on anything to a mature student who knows what they are doing. 
I have put together a few looks with different variations that compliment your different moods.
I would say the most important things to invest in are boots, jackets and jeans. 
These looks show a summer/autumn transition. As you get into the swing of things experiment with the hottest on trend colours (fuchsia, royal blue, burgundy, mustard- blogpost to follow).
