“I don’t really think too much about what I wear but I’ve always avoided all black – I love adding touches of bright colour (like this huge green scarf!). Most of my clothes are hand-me-downs – the suit is my mum’s and the jumper used to belong to my dad. Recently I’ve really started thinking that less is more, but every now and again I’ll put on some outrageously bright three piece for a formal or something. If I need inspiration, Tilda Swinton is my go-to gal, whether she’s in a dress or a suit, she always looks comfortable in her own skin, definitely a style icon.”

Olivia Miller (1st Year Education, English and Drama, Homerton)

“I love wearing denim on denim, people call it the Canadian tuxedo. The jacket was my Canadian grandfather’s and it’s my absolute favourite thing to wear because there’s plenty of room for oversized sweaters (which are also usually my grandfather’s) underneath. The jeans I’ve had for almost four years, they have been patched up twice and still have holes, but they’re the perfect fit for high waisted jeans, and the fading matches the jacket perfectly. I don’t wear a lot of green but I constantly go back to this sweater which was my mum’s and brings a bit of a bright colour back to a rainy day. The sneakers aren’t very original, but they’re classics and just so easy to slip on during a busy day. I feel comfortable and confident in this look, it’s been my winter go-to for a while.”

Timur Coskun (2nd Year English, Trinity)

“It seems male fashion has become a bit daunting for lots of men in Cambridge, which is a shame. Whilst I don’t spend a huge amount of time planning what I wear for the day, I like to think that the colours and fabrics I choose compliment my surroundings, whether in relation to the season or the location. For example, in autumn/winter, I tend to go for darker, richer colours; I usually work around what coat I am wearing that day, in this case a long double-breasted coat. I dressed that up a bit by adding a turtle-neck jumper underneath to create layering and some deep green corduroy trousers which gave an almost velvety impression, perfect for the cold weather. The shoes are blue suede brogues I picked up in Bicester Village, and they seemed to compliment the overall dark autumnal mood I was going for.”
