Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ll be familiar with Depop, the Instagram-style app which allows users to browse, buy and sell clothes with ease, snagging bargains without having to rummage in charity shops. I’ve put together an edit of the best men’s and women’s clothes I could find, so you can update your wardrobe for less. Don’t worry, you can thank me later!
Canary Yellow Tommy Hilfiger Waterproof Jacket with Fleece Insert
@fletch93, £70 (size medium)
Why not be daring and embrace yellow this season? It’s a key colour for spring/summer 17. Tommy Hilfiger has recently brought out a jacket in a very similar shade which retails for £190, so this is a real bargain.
Oversized Vintage Striped Shirt
@gemjam, £12 (size medium / large)
Stripes have been popping up on catwalks all over the place courtesy of big names like Fendi and Marques’ Almeida. A timeless pattern which is bang on trend, this vintage shirt is a steal. Layer it up over a t shirt with jeans and some distressed trainers for an effortlessly edgy look for a night out at The Cut or Worldies.
Utilitarian Vintage Men’s Backpack
Olive-greens, khakis and durable fabrics form the basis for the utilitarian trend this season. This sturdy backpack is perfect to fit all the books you’ll need to make sure you keep up with that NYE resolution to actually do your seminar readings this term.
Patterned Grunge Jumper
@tristanleonparker, £14 (size medium)
This grungy, 90s jumper is a steal; with a distinctive pattern, it’s perfect for constructing a bold, grunge inspired look. Pair with Doc Martens and a pair of light wash jeans and you’ll look like you’ve stepped right out of a ‘90s music video.
@ktbethx, £42 (size UK 6 / 8)
The fashion world has been hotly anticipating Supreme’s (expensive) collaboration with Louis Vuitton, so even if the collection is a bit pricey for your student budget (£54k trunk anyone?) you can stay on trend in this cute Supreme bralette.
Red Hot Chilli Peppers Tee
@ameliaissick, £15 (size x-small)
Band tees are bang on trend right now, with celebs like Jessica Alba and Anne Hathaway, not to mention Instagram royalty, Kendall Jenner, rocking the trend. This Chillis tee is versatile – everyone knows that black is the new black.
Bright Purple 80s Ski Jacket
@bananaheston, £24 (size UK 10 / 12)
Bright purples and pinks have been shown on catwalks from New York to Milan, so why not take inspiration from the 1980s with this multi-coloured ski jacket? It works great here with a bold zebra print skirt.
Vintage Levi 511 Jeans
@neverfollowtrends, £15 (W32, L32)
Wider fitting denims are coming back into fashion and these 511’s are perfect if you want a jean wider than a pair of skinnies but not quite as wide as a pair of 501s. They’ll look great rolled up to an ankle-skimming length with Vans and white socks.
