Better to be overdressed than underdressed. I think it depends where you go to uni, like Loughborough it would've stood out a little because a lot of students tend to stick to sportswear, with the occasional injection of denim and a gilet.
I normally consider myself smart but in the 18 months i was at uni, I can count on one hand the times i've worn jeans to lectures. I can also count on one hand how many times i've worn makeup, or anything other than plimmies or uggs on my feet. It's not that i'm a slob, I would just rather have another 20 minutes in bed
Does anyone use their degree?
