Proper university life is back! Yep, after two absolutely awful years of completing/starting the most important years of in your bedroom in your trackie bums thanks to COVID-19, normal student life is back with an almighty bang.
Heading to uni means we get to relish in the nostalgia of a ‘back to skool’ routine, but this time we’re swapping the pencil case for a brand new wardrobe and er, some pots and pans where we can muster up some gourmet meals. We use the term gourmet very, very loosely.
If you're looking for some much-needed inspo for what to wear to your first weeks at uni and beyond, we got you.

What to wear in your halls
Living your first year of uni in halls is an experience to say the least. And speaking from experience, halls are a little chilly in the winter and students tend to turn to home comforts to make us feel a little better about the icicles forming on the inside of our windows and pile of washing up that is close to hitting the ceiling in the shared kitchen.
