Morgan Scobie tells you how to stay on-trend this fall — without going over budget.


 

For this Autumn/Winter,the runways were all about flares and fur. With designers such as Burberry bringing back seventies style in a new and improved way, winter shopping has never been so exciting. Unfortunately, a student budget can’t cover that gorgeous, blue-green fur jacket sported by Kendall Jenner on the Michael Kors runway. Instead of cutting back in other ways (i.e: living off beans and toast), the trends below will keep you looking just as cool as Kendall — just for less.

That’s So 70’s

On the A/W 2015 runways, seventies styles dominated. reflecting this trend, turtle necks and flared jeans are all over the high street. With a modern spin, a 70’s ensemble can look chic and trendy whilst keeping you warm during the freezing St. Andrews winters.

Eccentric fur

One of my favourite trends this season is eccentric furs. Every winter we see the comeback of the fur jacket, but this year, the trend has been reinvented. Featuring over-the-top colours and unique textures, fur is here to stay this fall. What better way to keep warm than a (faux) fur jacket?

As someone who is a big fan of wearing black, I am more than excited for the ‘head to toe’ black trend that is hitting our a/w season. This trend can be worn in a number of simple yet elegant ways. It is so easy to pull off and a black outfit is bound to look fashionable whatever way you choose to wear it.
