The Best Clothes Shops For Students

h

Being a student myself, I know how heartbreaking it is when you look at how much you have in your bank and you realise you only have £2 left! It has gotten to that point where my friends become surprised when I say I have actually got over £10. I am definitely a spender not a saver, but I am getting to a place in my life where I need to start putting back a little bit of money for university and a car etc… However I obviously need new clothes every now and then as well.

It is all well and good having a little scroll through ASOS and picking out a load of cute things but you look at the total of your basket and your like ‘HOW MUCH?!?’. Don’t get me wrong I LOVE ASOS but it can be a little pricey, depending on what you like and the item of clothing.

Being on a restricted budget nearly all the time, I have done a fair bit of research into places where you can get decent clothes CHEAP. And I am talking like max £40 for a lush leather jacket. Even that might seem expensive but noooooo worries because they do things A LOT cheaper too.

‘But surely if it’s cheap it won’t be very good quality?’ Well that’s where you are wrong because I have tried out these places and I can personally say that the clothing is not cheap or tacky looking. I HAVE YOUR BACK DON’T WORRY.

Boohoo

Top on my list has to be Boohoo. To put it simply Boohoo is a bit like ASOS but the prices are just scaled down and you don’t have any big brands like Adidas or Nike but then when you are on a budget who needs those? I actually ordered a white off-the-shoulder crop top and a pair of floral printed trousers which I am waiting for excitingly. I have never had a problem with Boohoo clothing in the terms of quality. The only times I have had to send things back is when I have ordered the wrong size because I got too hopeful that I could fit in a smaller size…. *SIGH* Boohoo are a company you must order from if you haven’t. Boohoo also ALWAYS has offers or discounts on whether that is 20% off your order or FREE next day delivery so thank you Boohoo for thinking of our banks.

Everything5pounds.com

I found this clothing site after they mentioned it on TV and I HAD to check it out because I was like ‘Surely the title name can’t be true’ but IT IS. Everything on their website, clothes, shoes, accessories and all are £5. There is a vast range of different styles on there and maybe if you want to spend a bit more, then there is a VIP sections full of designer items. I think this is best for shoes because finding cheap but trendy shoes can be super hard. With this site you defo can!

PrettyLittle Thing

I hadn’t seen this brand before Saffron Barker had mentioned the brand on her channel so I decided to check it out. I LOVE some of their stuff and I think they are really good at getting formal wear perfect! It is a little more expensive but it really depends on what you buy because you can get some GORGE tops for less than £10.

Miss Guided

Miss Guided is the most expensive place to shop from out of this list but I wanted to cover the more pricier side of ‘cheap’ too. However I wanted to throw this out their because loads of my friends also shop in Miss Guided and I am always really jel of what they get. Miss Guided do 20% off with student discount which is always good because it means you don’t have to stretch your pocket as far as you were going to!

Primark

I know there are a lot of people out there who can be a bit of a Primark snob and don’t worry I totally get you because I can be the same. But I feel like Primark comes in waves off good clothes, and when they are having a good period you can find some really lush pieces. I have a load of cute tees and a pink pinafore which I adore from Primark as they are just so good for their price. You can tell a difference in the quality of Primark clothes to higher end, however if you need just some plain tees then with primani you can’t go wrong.

If you are a student then considering things like a NUS card or using Unidays will get you extra discount on all your goodies!

Where do you shop from when you are on a budget?

  2. I’ve been using the carousell app to buy a lot of my clothes recently! They’re second hand, but always really good quality and all the clothes I’ve purchased have been brands like asos or dangerfield for less than half the price of buying new! I can’t recommend it enough. ❤

  3. As a broke uni student myself, I’m always looking for a great deal on clothing and I cannot thank you enough for making this post!! I’ve always had my eye on Boohoo, but was never sure of the quality. But now I’m definitely going to give it a try! Wonderful post!

  4. Boohoo is definitely my favourite. There aren’t many fancy clothes stores in New Zealand, and even less in the town I come from so a lot of my shopping is done online. Infact…. I may actually go do some more now 😛

      1. I actually checked out the websites and every site except boohoo was in euros. Coming from the US it was so sad because I couldn’t buy them. Maybe one day could you make a post with cheap stores that use dollars?

  5. Primark is my fave! Yeah, there’s a lot of crap in there, but if you sift you way through and find all the gems (and be sure to try them on to see that they look/fit good) then it is well worth the trip. I’m going down Oxford Street and doing a massive Primark haul soon! Genuinely so excited haha. Haven’t bought many new clothes in a couple years, no-where better to change-up and restock a wardrobe than Primark IMO! They also change their stock so often so there’s usually something new that I like when I go in 😉
