Velvet is one of the best fabrics for AW and the crushed red velvet backpack is right up our street. Great for adding some colour into a dark and dreary winter’s day.

Race Day Outfits with Missguided – The Movie Heroines Edit

The Race Day season is here and you’re definitely going to be after some outfit inspiration. You need something that’s going to make a statement, right? Well we’ve sought out some awesome outfits based on our favourite movie heroines with a little help from Missguided to help you guys look picture perfect for the big parties.

1. Cher Horowitz
Cher from Clueless is the queen of the matching set! If it’s tartan, plaid or coordinating, this girl is on it. We think she’d love this sassy slogan tee and check suit combo, don’t you? Accessorised with some killer heels and sunnies of course!

Tartan Shorts  Tartan Jacket  T-Shirt  Shoes  Sunnies

2. Elle Woods
Legally Blonde’s Elle Woods was the only person we could think of when we spied this striking pink power suit. She’d love it paired with a matching coat for Bruiser, we reckon! We’ve added in some trademark sparkle for that Elle Woods serious-Harvard-lawyer look and a cute pussybow blouse brings some business-like attitude.

Shorts  Jacket  Shoes  Blouse

3. Janis Ian
If all the pink & girly is too much for you, Mean Girl’s Janis Ian can definitely be your Race Day style inspiration. Think dark colours and with a whole load of attitude to channel her look. You can totally wear a matching purple Tux with your best mate if you want to, but we’re loving this outfit below, for a more Race Day appropriate look! The chunky shoes and leather bandage skirt take a normal blazer to rock-chick style icon. Take inspiration from the Tux with a short sleeved shirt.

4. Bianca Stratford
Bianca from 10 Things I Hate About You is our ultimate prom or occasion style icon. This is where the full skirt & crop top combination was born. Full copy her in this amazing midi skirt but bring it back to 2014 with this pretty lace bralette top. We thought she’d love the embellished shoulder bag too. It’s all about her hair in this one too, so 90s!

Hopefully this gave you some Race Day outfit inspiration. Don’t forget that Missguided have an amazing 20% off right now for students so check them out for some more style bargains.

We’ve picked our three favourite coats from Missguided’s new drop of A/W amazing-ness and we’ve styled a few outfits to go with them to give you a little extra inspiration!

Sixties Chick
This Pink Cocoon Coat screams the Sixties with its mannish shape but it’s brought bang into 2014 with the pastel pink colour. Keep that Sixties vibe going with a white polo neck shift dress and give the outfit a hint of modern with some metallic silver accessories.

missguided_coat_blog1
White Dress 
  Silver Bag  Silver Loafers

Seventies Vibes
The cosiest coat award is currently going to this Mixed Fur Jacket! How snuggly does this one look? It gives off some serious retro vibes and wouldn’t have looked out of place in an ABBA video. This, is a good thing! We love it and it would look awesome paired with a wide brim fedora and a detailed crochet dress.

missguided_coat_blog2Fedora  Dress  Sunglasses  Boots

Nineties BritPop
The Parka is the iconic 90s/early 2000s coat for the indie scene and they are built for keeping the chill out! Check out the stunning orange lining too. A cute dress, some tough boots and a backpack is all you need to work this look.

New Season Trends with New Discounts!

We’ve had some really exciting new retailers join us recently in the form of two great menswear brands East Dane and Ben Sherman, plus the amazing Zalando! So, it only seemed right to showcase a few of their super stylish products that you can use your student discount on, and what better way to do it than with some A/W trends.

AW_trends_F

One of our favourite trends for A/W at the moment is the Sixties revival. This Anna Field at Zalando Dress is perfect with the colour-block print and the A-line shape, you can grab 10% off it with your UNiDAYS discount. Pointed flats are a massive part of the 60s trend and we love the Erika Flats and the Sophie Loafers, both from Shopbop.

If two-pieces and separates are your thing, we love this Collared Top available at Shopbop and this houndstooth Pieces Rollneck from Zalando. Both of these would look awesome paired with this Esprit Skirt, also from Zalando. Accessorise with some thick framed glasses like the ones above from Shopbop and a cute boxy bag like the Michael Kors available at Zalando.

AW_trends_M

A menswear trend that is also going to be huge is Sports Luxe. This means comfy casual pieces and bold prints. Ben Sherman (who have an awesome 20% off right now) have this trend down and this Jumper hits the spot with the easy to wear grey marl and edgy print. Other pieces that caught our eye were these Trainers and T-Shirt. Top off the look with a Bomber Jacket to keep warm.

East Dane also have some awesome pieces that are great for the Sports Luxe Trend and 10% off too! Grab some Jack Purcell trainers if the Ben Sherman ones aren’t for you. Khaki is a big colour for this trend and these trousers are bang on with the sporty vibe. Accessories wise, we’re a fan of this Marc by Marc Jacobs Phone Case, not to mention the epic camo print on this Herschel Bag!

Happy shopping guys, remember to check back on site to see what other boosted discounts we’ve got going on at the moment!

Betabrand – 4 Pairs of Pants You Need In Your Life

Today, we bring you guys a little education about one of our favourite US retailers, Betabrand. They sell the coolest products, stuff that you definitely won’t get anywhere else and we think it makes sense that you guys should know all about them. In this post we’re talking pants but not just any old pants, these four different pairs of pants will totally blow your mind!

1. Dress-Pant Yoga Pants
Ever wish that you could just wear your yoga pants to work or college every day? Now you totally can with Betabrand’s incredible new invention! These pants feel like yoga pants but they’re smart enough to wear to work or smarter college occasions. They have slim-cut thighs, belt loops and that all important elastic waistband. Awesome? We think so.

betabrand_1

2. Grey Skinny ‘Bike to Work’ Jeans
Do you regularly cycle to work or college? Do you sometimes wish you could be seen better by cars and other vehicles in the dark but don’t want to go out looking like a human glow stick? These Bike to Work jeans have to be for you! They have reflective zippers and a removable reflective flag on the back pocket. Other cute additions are the polka dot lining and the hidden zipper coin pocket. They also include 3% Spandex for that extra comfortable fit. Neat!

betabrand_4

3. Disco Leggings
Ok, so you probably don’t need these but they’re pretty cool, right? These are pretty much the coolest leggings you’ll ever come across. Perfect for parties.

betabrand_3

4. The Vajamas
Last but not least are these incredible ‘Vajamas’ – weird name, we vouch for that but they are the most incredible, comfy bottoms the world has ever seen! (Well UNiDAYS has ever seen anyway!). These soft-as-hugging-a-baby-owl pajama bottoms will make you wave goodbye to your trusty sweatpants in one fowl swoop! They are even described as having ‘unearthly softness’ and have two deep side pockets which are perfect for carrying snacks from the fridge to the couch.

You can grab 15% college discount off all of these items with your UNiDAYS account!

GUEST BLOG: London Fashion Week Round-Up! #LFW

After bidding farewell to the last London Fashion Week of the year, we thought we’d reflect back on the highlights of the catwalks, plus the epic street-style going on from the sidewalk fashionistas too. So this week we’ve joined forces with amazing guest blogger Ellie of Ellie’s Favourite Things and she reported back to us on what rocked it this LFW.

First up, the street style…

And now, Ellie’s lowdown on the top shows of LFW SS15. Over to you Ellie…

The one show I always really look forward to is the Orla Kiely presentation. I managed to get a ticket this year so was able to witness everything first hand (slightly insane!) at the Vinyl Factory just off Carnaby Street. Full of flower power, graphics prints and tulle skirts, the whole collection is a total dream and made me want to wish away Winter and invest in some chunky t-bar sandals.

Topshop Unique. Always a winner. Bold colour blocking contrasted against powder blue and sherbet lemon shades, the collection was based on British subcultures, northern soul meets the rockers. I absolutely love the tomboy boxy jackets and bowling bags and then the simple slip dresses and pleated skirts.

There’s something quite fairytale like and romantic about Bora Aksu’s SS15 collection. Lots of white, delicate lace and midi skirts giving a dreamy feel. Halfway through, the catwalk turned dark, revealing a more sinister and gothic side with lots of dark blues, purples and blacks – almost telling a story. (I also love the side braids!)

If I had things my way (and had unlimited money) my wardrobe would be full of Whistles – even more so after seeing their SS15 collection. Lots of sports luxe shapes, off the shoulder styles and a subtle palette of mainly monochrome, nudes and greys. Whistles stayed casual but sophisticated and I love it!

Well there you have it, the SS15 collections to watch out for next year as well a head start on putting that new wardrobe wishlist together! A big thanks goes to Ellie for her awesome low-down and if you had any favourite LFW collections, let us know simply by hitting us up via @UNiDAYS_TheEdit or by popping a comment below!
