Exams. Pulling all-nighters. Finding that self-motivation from deep within the depths of your soul. Are you ready to start the study semester all over again? If you’ve spent most of your summer binging Netflix show after show, the impending arrival of university starting again might be a rude awakening. And, while studying might be stressful (and let’s face it - dull), finding the perfect outfits to wear on the daily doesn’t have to be.
We’ll make up a million and one excuses to avoid writing that essay or meeting up for that group study session, but when it comes to shopping online, you don’t need to tell us twice. In fact, recent research shows that the clothes we wear can actually help us focus and has a direct impact on performance.
Say no more: excel in and out of the classroom with our uni must-have pieces.
Get a High Distinction grade in all your classes with Billy J
Ditch the oversized hoodie and leggings. From now on, you’re going to rule the playground in the hottest get-ups from Billy J that are not only stylish but comfortable as well.
Whether you’re a dress-and-low-heels kinda gal, love to lay low in boyfriend jeans or prefer the polished co-ord way, we’ve put together some cute outfit ideas to inspire you, no matter what your style. Feel free to break out of your comfort zone or stick with tried-and-true. This is how you’re going to rule the school this year!
FOR THE BOHO BABES
Mom jeans, flowy blouses, loose A line skirts. That’s the boho way. You really can’t go wrong with this style - you’ll be extremely comfortable as you traipse from class to class. Best of all, boho means bright patterns and loud colours. Try our Kelly Maxi Dress in a luscious turquoise and brown paisley print or pair our off-the-shoulder, relaxed fit Venus top with our white Levine Jeans. Prefer skirts and top combo? Our Lost Dreams Crop top is a match made in heaven with our Tulia Pant.
FOR THE HIGH ACHIEVER
Our shirts are extremely versatile and a staple piece that will keep you going from classroom to cocktails. Keep it classic and tucked into your skirt or pants for a polished look or wear them unbuttoned and loose for that relaxed vibe. We love the Valerie Top tucked into the Philomena A Line skirt.
Alternatively, you can’t go wrong with a fitted black and white polka dot midi dress like our Pipa Dress. Made from elastic stretch cotton, it’s super comfortable and suitable for uni days.
HERE FOR THE CHER
Cher Horowitz might have graced our screens way back in 1995 but that hasn’t stopped the best of us from harnessing that energy from her matching outfits in Clueless in current time. Want to look ultra-cute but way studious at the same time? Wear a co-ord! We love the Issy Skirt with matching Issy Crop Top for that preppy look. Or, team our Gaia Blazer with our Gaia Shorts.
Cher would be so proud.
THE FINISHING TOUCHES: JEWELLERY
Dreading setting the alarm for an 8am start? Same. It’s mornings like these that you want to spend every moment sleeping - and not putting thought into your outfit of the day. One way to instantly put a bit of pep in your step first thing in the morning is to accessorise. A statement pair of earrings or a large necklace can do wonders to your mood and your outfit. Plus, it can breathe new life into your old wardrobe.
