For most of you, your second university semester will have started this month, which means new modules, new classes, and new people to meet!

Whilst uni is by no means a fashion show, you may find that looking good helps you to feel good - and there's nothing wrong with that!

Choosing a stylish but comfy and practical outfit every day whilst attending university can be exhausting, especially throughout the winter. That’s why we’ve put together this guide to help give you some winter uni outfit inspo.



Jeans are a staple in every wardrobe, and a perfect item to have in rotation for your winter uni outfits.

Timeless, versatile and durable, a perfectly fitting pair of jeans will be your best friend when curating everyday looks.

There is various style of jean, from skinny to flared, skater to straight leg, so make sure you take some time to figure out which are the most flattering for your body type and fit with your overall aesthetic.

At the moment, we’re favouring a low rise baggy straight leg jean, which can be dressed up with a cute top for nights out or dressed down with a pair of Sambas for seminars and lectures.


This pair from Nasty Gal are a great all-rounder if you love a classic blue denim. We think it’s a good idea to have a pair in an alternative colour as well, so you can easily mix up your outfits.

This pair from Topshop at ASOS are a stunning dirty green colour (but look black), a perfect option! Treat yourself to 15% Off Nasty Gal with TOTUM and get 10% off at ASOS!

For guys, we also favour a relaxed look that can be worn casually or paired with a shirt or nice sweater for smarter occasions.

If you want to get a couple of pairs of affordable jeans that you can easily have in circulation, we like these relaxed fit blue denim jeans and these black baggy jeans. Get 10% Extra off boohooMAN with TOTUM.

If you’re after something of higher quality but that is a little more expensive, be sure to check out these black Carhartt WIP dark denim pants.


These have a relaxed fit but also have that polished, premium look. Carhartt is also a popular and stylish brand, so these are a great addition to your wardrobe.


Another comfortable but stylish bottoms option is cargos/parachute pants.

Because of their baggy nature, they’re breathable and comfy and make the perfect everyday trouser. They are also right on trend, with baggy y2k apparel and streetwear making a massive comeback in recent years.

If you’ve got a big library session planned, then a good tracksuit or a pair of joggers will also likely be your go to.

Being cosy doesn’t mean you can’t be stylish, why not try this dupe of the TikTok viral Zara bomber style tracksuit! Save an extra 10% at boohoo with your TOTUM discount.



Which top you wear really changes the whole mood of the outfit in our opinion. For uni during the winter it’s a good idea to stick to something simple, comfy and warm. Long sleeve Skims-inspired tops and body suits are the perfect choice to keep you slaying whilst being practical!

This charcoal long sleeve sculpt top is a great example of this - it's effortless but flattering.


If you’re heading out with friends after your last class of the day you could always go for the open back version, styled under a hoodie or jumper to keep you warm.

This tight material tends to do a good job at being warming, whilst also feeling unrestrictive.

We also love this cute bow top – ribbons are everywhere at the moment, and this sweet long sleeve is a fun way to stand out. You can grab all of these tops and make big savings with your TOTUM discount at ASOS.

Sometimes keeping it simple is where it’s at, guys. This plain black crew neck paired with a white tee underneath, blue jeans and some good trainers (don’t worry, we’ll get onto those shortly!) is a great look.

If you like this idea but maybe have more to spend and want to chuck a brand in there, we love this ACG sweatshirt, available at HIP.


HIP is a fantastic store to source popular and iconic brands and has a great range of graphic tees and t-shirts, so be sure to check out their end of season sale and enjoy up to 50% off!


For jackets, it really depends on your personal style as well as the unpredictable British weather...

Puffer jackets are a UK winter staple and this one from boohoo is super simple, will go with everything and will definitely keep you warm on your journey to and from uni. Remember to enjoy 10% off boohoo on us!


Somewhere like Go Outdoors can be a great place to source a good quality and long-lasting puffer.

The North Face ones are super popular and a great option if you can invest in a high quality piece, but be sure to also check out other brands which are just as cool but more affordable. For example, this Columbia one is a great alternative.


Faux leather jackets are another fabulous option, and super on trend atm.

If a long coat is more your style and you’d like to have a brighter look, we love this Oversized Wool Look Coat from boohoo.


Onto accessories! Winter is a great time to utilise classic winter accessories such as hats, gloves and scarves to both keep you warm and enhance your outfit.

This slim scarf from Weekday is gorgeous, and we also love these wrist warmers. And what's more, Weekday are offering you a whopping 20% off with TOTUM!

Snoods are another good way to keep cosy and trendy whilst at uni. For example, this one from ASOS is right up our street.


This RAB beanie from Go Outdoors is another cool piece to go for, if you like a beanie for that extra level of warmth in the winter.


For shoes, trainers are a go to. Comfortable by nature, you’re doing your feet a favour opting for a good pair of sneakers.

Personal preference is big here, but some of our favourite models include the faultless Nike Tuned 3, the original and classic Samba which come in a range of cool colours, the unbeatable Air Max 95 and the fresh New Balance 1906D Protection Pack.


If you’re more of a shoe person, opt for something sturdy and warm in the winter such as Dr Martens, Boots, UGGS or Loafers. Please, we don’t want to be seeing any crocs on campus at this time of year!

We have great discounts on all these shoes for you, whether you shop at Footlocker, JD Sports or Schuh! Refresh your winter wardrobe and make big savings with TOTUM.
