We couldn’t miss out on Calvin Klein especially when their underwear for both boys and girls is a cult essential. Calvin Klein is great for that athleisure style, sport-inspired loungewear and basics. The brand is not only on trend throughout the year, but there are also high-quality jackets and jumpers for the colder weather.

Designer Footwear

#1 Dr Martens 

Dr Martens are the secret weapon to every student’s wardrobe because you can keep them forever. Dr Martens can seem like a big investment but anyone that owns a pair will tell you can wear them to class, nights out, meals, festivals – literally anything on your calendar!

You will need to wear your Dr Martens in which is a process, they are firm and sturdy so sometimes you need to soften them to your foot shape. They are extremely hardwearing which is why so many people wear them for years and years and if you ever fall out of love with your docs, they always hold their money if you want to resell them. They are true to size but if you sit in the middle of sizes or need more room in a boot, definitely size up.
