It’s time to wrap up warm this winter with our 6 fashion essentials for students!

1. Warm coat

As temperatures continue to drop, colder air, heavier rain and more snow expected to fall, one item definitely worth investing in this winter is a warm coat. This will make your commute to university a little more bearable on those cold winter mornings.

Did you know, we lose approximately 50% of our body’s warmth through our heads?  This is why a hat is a must-have winter essential to keep warm. Complete your winter wardrobe with a matching scarf and gloves and you’re good to go.
