Winter is slowly creeping closer to halls and houses, but you can banish the freezing winds and rain typical of York with this season’s clothes which put a new twist on classic pieces. Layering is key to surviving nights out while also braving the library’s sweltering temperatures, and Topshop’s twist on the classic brown mac is the perfect outer layer for many of this season’s reworked classics.
Team it with New Look’s nude knitted jumper and Urban Outfitters’ weather-defying suedette leggings for days on campus or Topshop’s lace bodycon dress for nights out, using classic black accessories to pull it all together. Their pannelled pastel ankle-length trench coat is also a statement piece to be proud of – couple it with a mid-heel boot for a smart and chic take on daywear. For those of you who are still in denial about this woolly hat weather, consider Topshop’s snake print fedora instead. Autumn need not be a time to bury your style under misfitting waterproofs – embrace the season and make the most of the high street’s A/W offerings
