Cold mornings and warm, sunny days are a sure sign that autumn has given a high-five to summer and whispered see you next year sucker! A new season means new trends, new faces and new homes. Students of Oxford, welcome to the Clarendon Centre!
The royalty of the fashion world have taken a bow after completing their latest shows for autumn/winter 2019 and now we turn to the high street to perfect our look. We’ve rounded up the top, seasonal must-haves for your wardrobe, home and uni bag.
Following on from the utilitarian looks of the spring and the hugely influential ‘Villanelle’ of Killing Eve fame, combat boots are the must have footwear for autumn. Style up with a flamboyant dress, or with patterned leggins and an oversized jumper for a more casual feel.
Platform boots – £29.99 – H&M
A Flash of Fluorescent
Although monochrome dominated many of the catwalks, it is definitely not time to pack away your summer of colour. Pair neon-block tones with every-day denim for an autumnal take this vibrant style.

Hyper Hair Things
If you’ve previously felt too shy to wear extravagant headpieces but always wanted to, now is the time! This autumn, anything goes, but why not start with something a little more subtle to ease you into your new look.
Neutral Home Wear
Nothing makes you feel like you’re nailing ‘adulting’ like new bedding, and when you think that we spend up to a third of our lives in bed, having dreamy bedding really is vital. Following on from the ‘Nordic Retreat’ theme of 2019, warming neutrals are the perfect way to create a relaxed and restful space.
Keeps you warm? Tick. Looks great? Double tick. The lightweight, duvet-dressing puffa has thankfully stuck around for the new season. Bonus points to Gap for using 100% recycled fill from their outerwear collection for this number.
Studies have shown that you are more likely to remember something if you have written it down with a pen and paper as opposed to typing on an electronic device. Get yourself a stylish notebook to keep all your lecture notes safely stored in your bag and in your noggin.
So there you have it, our round-up of the best of the new. Good luck with the new term, and we look forward to seeing you at the Clarendon Centre soon.
