Recovered enough from Freshers’ flu to think back fondly on your first week? Carla Jenkins explores the trends and looks of this Freshers Week. Have you been snapped by the Tribe to show off what’s hot this season?


Much can be said for St. Andrews being a fashionable place, and it is no lie that the first few weeks of term are where the most fashion-conscious are most consciously fashionable. We spent a few hours at the library and took some snaps of the chicest St Andreans that passed through those doors. Take heed or inspiration – or just use this article to enjoy the beautiful faces of the St. Andrews’ famous fashion pack.



Name: Bruce

Interesting Fact: I used to have a column 

Favourite item of clothing: Shoes

Vintage adidas sports jackets are always easy ways to quirk up a plain outfit – block colours have also made a massive comeback this season – see American Apparel for an example of how to wear the block colour shirts.




Name: Frances

Interesting Fact: I was born with teeth,

Favourite item of clothing: My camel coat

A coat is a staple piece this Autumn and a necessity for St Andrews weather. Go for grey, navy, bottle green or tan.





Name: Sophie

Interesting fact: I was in a Mexican Jail for three days, for a spelling bee mishap

Favourite item of clothing: I love my Stan Smith trainers.

With an interesting bottom half of an outfit, always tone down the top half for balance. Vintage shoes are always a good investment and can be relatively inexpensive. Novelty tights spruce up any outfit.




Name: Sarah

Interesting fact: I was the under 11 UK chess champion

Favourite item of clothing: Anything that’s my grans

Green Creepers give an unconventional touch to what is quickly coming a conventional item. Team florals with coats; it’s autumn, not winter.




Name: Victoria

Interesting Fact: I have an interesting relationship with Avacados

Favourite item of clothing: This jacket/ cardigan

Mid-length Cardigans are set to be massive this Autumn – especially in patterned wool.
