Morgan Scobie tracked down one of the hottest looks in St Andrews this past week – a fun, 70’s-inspired outfit perfect for the transition towards spring! 




Name: Katherine Thornton

Year of Study: Second

Wardrobe Staple: Patterns


Though spring has technically already sprung, Scotland hasn’t quite caught on yet. The sun may be peaking out more and more every day, but the wind (and the hail!) means that transitioning from darker winter garb to cheery spring clothes can be difficult. However, some people seem to have mastered the art, and interesting patterns and bright colours are beginning to grace our three streets.


Katherine’s outfit is a perfect example of what to wear at this time of year with the chilly winds and odd glimpses of sunshine. The bright leggings and patterned top have been styled in a sophisticated way through the inclusion of a knee length coat. The fur collar attacked to the coat adds a feminine touch to the tailored coat. Katharine has also channeled her inner disco, as we can see with her 70’s patterns and colours. Her outfit is tied together with the contrasting, eye-popping blue purse worn across the body, which emphasises her bright patterned top.


Spring in Scotland, especially in St Andrews, is never particularly warm, but Katherine shows us how to incorporate spring fashion into your daily wardrobe while still staying warm!
