You’ve got nothing to lose!

To get you in the Ibiza mood we’ve also put together a ‘Get The Look’ feature showcasing the best in holiday style from some of our favourite celebrities.

Beyoncé - Tribal & Tropical
We don’t know if there’s ever a time where this lady doesn’t look amazing but she sure knows how to do holiday glam in her print clash tribal two-piece. Get the look with a cute co-ord, try this one from PrettyLittleThing which you can pick up for £24 with your student discount. Accessories have to be bold when it comes to Beyoncé and we’re loving her chunky gold jewellery. Get the look with this All Saints necklace, at £150.40 we know this is a pricey piece but word on the street is it’s the actual one that Bey has! Or, get the look for much less with this bargain Boohoo gold bracelet, a steal at £4.50.

Top it off with some square sunglasses, this tortoiseshell pair from Missguided are only £4.50, and this Topshop leopard duffel bag which you can grab for £34.20 using your UNiDAYS discount.

Jamie Winstone – Relaxed Denim
Jamie Winstone is another gal who always looks great. We’re a big fan of her oversized floral shirt and casual shorts look, glammed up with a slick of red lipstick. You can get the look with these Jack Wills Shorts – £37.83, this Missguided Shirt – £20.70 topped off with some Daniel Sandler Lipstick in Red Carpet which is available from Look Fantastic for £13.25! Accessorise with simple jewellery like this Boohoo Bangle - £4.50 and classic black ankle boots, we love these from Office which are £76.50.

Millie Mackintosh – Boho Glam
Our favourite Chelsea girl is forever jetting off on holiday and she always gets her Ibiza look on point. Millie loves the boho look and we’ve hunted high and low through our retail partners to find you some similar pieces to recreate her style.

White shorts and a crochet cami are the perfect base for this outfit. We love these Boohoo Shorts which are £16.20 and this pretty Missguided Crop Top – £11.70.
Then it’s time to layer on some pretty pieces like this Fashion Union Kimono, 15% off at the moment and £23.80!

We know that Millie loves suede ankle boots and these ones from Dune would be perfect and at £67.50, they’re a great price. Continue the suede loving with this Topshop Suede Clutch Bag – £34.20 and top the look off with some bronzer and a little bit of Benefit Cosmetics Hoola Lip Gloss – £13.05.

Reading & Leeds Festival – Music & Fashion To Keep On Your Radar

If you’re off to Reading or Leeds, then you know who’s going to be ripping up the main stage. We’re here to give you some tip offs about some of the acts that you can’t miss on the smaller stages. (Oh and if you didn’t manage to score some tickets, we’re giving away 2 pairs of camping tix right here!)

music-blog

Appearing on the Lock Up Stage/The Pit on Saturday at Reading are some awesome harder rock bands. If you love Paramore then you’ll love the Marmozets. Lead singer, Becca, sounds almost identical to Hayley Williams of Paramore and her voice really suits the slightly harder rock.

Of Mice & Men, who are also playing this stage, are heading on the Vans Warped Tour before hitting the UK for the one of the biggest British rock festivals. You might have heard their hit Would You Still Be There being played on Radio 1 throughout the summer.

Another epic act that you need to keep an eye out for on the NME/BBC Radio 1 Stage are Clean Bandit. You’d have to have been living under a rock if you’ve missed their smash single ‘Rather Be‘, but the energy that they give off live is definitely not to be missed so make sure you catch them.

House and dance more for you? Don’t miss Friday night at Reading on the BBC Radio 1 Dance Stage where you can catch Secondcity, Indiana, Wilkinson and Annie Mac.

If you’re heading to Leeds early then don’t miss Friday’s Lock Up Stage/The Pit act Baby Godzilla. If you like Every Time I Die, you’ll love these guys. If BG are too screamo for you can finish up on the Sunday with a chilled one at the Festival Republic Stage by catching Hozier. This guy has an absolutely incredible voice, we first heard him on the Zane Lowe show with his song ‘From Eden’.

So you’ve got the tickets and you’ve checked the tent doesn’t have any holes in it. Get online to This is Pulp to get your last minute festival style buys. Your UNiDAYS 15% off student discount can also be used on sale items which just makes the bargain even sweeter!

Top 5 Graduation Fails!

Graduations are in the air at the moment and Facebook feeds are filling up with graduation gown selfies and the obligatory throwing the motar-board up in the air snaps! We thought we’d amp up the funny in this department and hunt out some epic graduation fails.

1. The Classic Fall c/o BuzzFeed
There’s a reason this is number one. It’s a classic, the trip over your own feet and thin air combination that gets us all at least once in our lives. Priceless.

anigif_enhanced-20862-1401748874-1

2. The Dancing Fail c/o Jest.com
This is by far one of our favourites. This girl is on top of the world, she’s graduated from university, she’s got her whole life ahead of her. This means one thing, dance off stage right! Someone needs to tell this girl she is not Chris Brown and this is not a music video for Yeah 3x.

b4894a54e9628aa867c9621106449f4b

3. The Stairs  c/o BuzzFeed

Those pesky stairs, always getting in the way!

anigif_enhanced-8463-1401741199-20

4. The Cartwheel c/o BuzzFeed

One word: Why? Because it’s seriously necessary to cartwheel when you’ve just shaken hands and picked up your certificate. That’s why.

anigif_enhanced-5574-1401741637-8

5. The Kid

Firstly, cruel that this kiddy has to ‘graduate’ when he’s obviously only about 6! But still kinda funny that he falls over. He has only just learnt to walk though, in his defence!

UNiDAYS X Missguided Winter Style Challenge — PART 2

Today we’re bringing you the last edition of our amazing Blogger Style Challenge that we’ve recently been running for the Australian/NZ Winter time. We have a new guest blogger onboard with us for this awesome Missguided Winter Essential styling challenge, the lovely Vanessa from online fashion and lifestyle bible, Flip & Style. We’re just going to let her do the talking from now on!

THE BRAND: Missguided

THE BLOGGER: Vanessa of FlipandStyle.com

THE CHALLENGE: To style Missguided’s Key Winter Essential, the Gaetana Floral Sleeve Blazer

sam-05.06.14-aj64237

Over to you Vanessa…

_BlogIntro_Vanessa

I find that one of the best ways to dress up in winter is to throw on a blazer. Being a jeans and tee kind of girl, a statement blazer turns such a simple outfit into a great look that can work for both the office and for going out. This blazer from Missguided caught my eye with the scattered floral print on the side – not too full on, with just the right amount of colour for me.

12

I paired it with a simple pair of black jeans, a layered white tank, pointed black flats and my everyday tote bag. Being not a big jewellery-wearer, I feel the stand-out floral print makes up for that. If anything, I’d just throw on a few rings.

45

Whether you’re making a presentation or going out for drinks, this blazer is the perfect winter addition for your wardrobe. Missguided actually have quite a selection of blazers in pastels, brights and amazing prints. Who said winter dressing had to be dull & boring? Back to UNiDAYS now! Thanks, guys.

Even Kate Moss was there last year in her classic festival gear of skinny jeans and leather jacket, a failsafe move in our opinion.

UNiDAYS X Missguided Winter Style Challenge

Missguided is a UNiDAYS favourite and and today we’re bringing you the latest edition of our Blogger Style Challenge. We have a new guest blogger onboard with us for this awesome Missguided Winter Essential task, so let us introduce to you Rachel of RachelBambi.com who’s styled a glam key winter piece exclusively for us.

THE BRAND: Missguided

THE BLOGGER: Rachel Wee of RachelBambi.com

THE CHALLENGE: To style Missguided’s Key Winter Essential, the Missguided Sancha Long Line Assymetric Zipped Tux Dress.

lucie-03.01.14-mc0230

Over to Rachel for her style tips!

_BlogIntro_RachelWee

I love how this tux dress can be worn two ways, as a long line blazer and as a dress. I decided to go for an all-white look for this Winter Warmer collaboration. My key motto in dressing: simplicity is sophistication is reflected in this look – structured shoulders, tailored streamline cutting with an asymmetric hem worn with a simple pair of gold tusk earrings by Luv AJ to match the gold zip details of this dress.  missguided-blogger-style-blazer-dresswinter-white-blogger-styleWhat do you think of Rachel’s minimalistic and glam look? We ‘re most definitely a fan! Tempted to go and spend some dollar on Missguided now? Don’t forget you can grab 20% off at the moment!
