As we delve into the colder months, there is a certain style that radiates amongst a large majority of uni students. I think it’s largely to do with the areas I’m around (hello indie writers and artsy designers), but there certainly is that boho (and for some, slightly hobo) look taking hold of our campus.
Let me explain.
To start things off, we have the leggings. Now don't get me wrong, I actually love printed leggings, but as a mere observation, students are usually flaunting a pair of dusty floral or black/white pattern pair, reminiscent of Ksubi street/grunge styles.

Then we have the oversized knitted sweater, usually with a lot of holes to either a) create an effortless style that looks like it’s just been casually thrown on, or b) remind the rest of the world that you are a uni student who is lacking in funds. Or both. Mustard and off-cream are the common colours.
Hair is long and wavy (this makes me jealous), and on occasion, paired with a knitted beret.
And feet… combat boots. All I can think of is Mia Thermopolis from The Princess Diaries when I hear those two words.
Effortlessly boho or copycat hobo? I’m uncertain but don’t think I didn’t hear about those UTS students sourcing their meals from local dumpsters…
What styles are you finding common at your uni? I’m interested to hear, especially if you're from a different faculty (come on budding scientists!)
