How can I be a fashionable -- but frugal -- student?
Published 30/09/2011 | 05:00
I started college this year and despite my best intentions to make an effort I find myself dressing in ugg boots and tracksuit bottoms!
I'm looking for some cute, effortless outfits that I can throw on and look fashionable in. I'm on a student budget so I need affordable pieces too!
It is as easy to throw on a winter dress as it is to don a tracksuit so there are no excuses for looking scruffy this semester!
Check out Maisy, a fresh and funky Irish label that specialises in versatile, wearable little tea-dresses and fashionable separates.
Their pieces are affordable with prices ranging from €30 to €60 and they offer a 10% discount to students.
I would recommend layering one of their tea-dresses with a cute parka jacket or cosy coatigan and accessorising with woolly tights, socks and sweet boots such as Buffalo's block-heeled waxie boots.
Statement blouses are a key trend for autumn so why not pair one with some tailored shorts and again layer up with woolly hosiery and boots?
