    So, like many, I'm going to start uni this year and like most high schools, i've been wearing school uniform on weekdays for the past 6 years.

    I am of average height (5'9) and go to the gym twice a week so I am lean however I am also thin because.... metabolism.

    At home I wear t-shirts that are sculpt to fit my body and track suit trousers. I also wear thick navy jumpers but I don't think wearing trackies and trainers to uni is such a great a look...

    So when I start uni, I will throw out my high school gear and will need to go out and buy some new apparel and i'm not sure what to wear:

    I also HATE jeans; never comfortable and not a fan of the look.

    So I was planning the somewhat smart look by wearing suit trousers, dress shoes and jumper on top as suit trousers are far more comfortable and less constricting - I have started wearing this combination more often... but does it look alright?

    Or are there any other suggestion for a somewhat classy look? I say "somewhat" because I want it to be practical as well, as in, I want to be able to dash when I need to and not let my clothing be a limiting factor like a full suit is....

    Trackies and trainers are my go to when I'm lazy and need to go out . Anyways, I suggest an Oxford shirt and potentially some chinos or maybe some smart trousers and to top it of some brogues or some other smart shoes

    I had a boyfriend before who didn't like jeans either, and he used to shop pretty frequently at Zara because their style does tend to lean away from the casual jeans thing, but still not too expensive. It's a good place to start, at least, just going through their lookbook?
