Mostly A’s – FAST Fashionista:

To you, life is a catwalk and you must always put your best diamanté heel forward. To put it simply you are a clothes addict and get your buzzes knowing you’re donning the look “du jour”. Fashion never fails to thrill and delight you. You’re a trend chaser and your outfits appear as if you walked straight off the catwalk onto campus. This year your Insta-followers will sky rocket with your fashion-savvy style and your photos might even be used to make fake cat-fish accounts on Tinder. Remember fashion is a timeless sense of style. So slow down and breathe in the fabric!

Mostly B’s – Medium Mod:

You wear your brains. You’re arty, adventurous and inventive with fashion. To you fashion is just another outlet for your creativity. Your style is very eclectic – one day you’re rocking retro punk next you’re keeping classy in a 50s polka dot dress. You are sometimes frugal with fashion and think it should not be dictated by white men in Milan. You would rather spend your hard earned cash on travelling to Spain, than buying a Gucci handbag. Sometimes you blur the lines between fashionista and frumpy- other times you’re a Diane Kruger and sometimes you’re sporting gym clothes and a backpack!

Mostly C’s – Slow Saab:

Well hello fledgling fashionista! This upcoming issue is dedicated to you. Let’s be real you’d rather play Simz than clothes shop. You like to keep simple. You wear – well you just don’t care. But somehow you pull off unexpected combos and people admire your daring style. Also, your Grandma has good fashion sense so you make do with Christmas sweaters. Just remember one golden rule this semester, do not, I repeat do not wear your leaver’s jacket to uni no matter how comfy it is. Even if all your other clothes spontaneously combust!
