student-blog-banner-2

When you’re a student juggling your part-time union bar job with looming coursework deadlines, late nights and weekly budgets, you fully understand the value of a bargain. That’s why we created our SilkFred student outlet. Better than any promo code, it gives you 25-50% off everything, all the time – no codes needed.

Essentially, it’s just like our regular outlet, but curated for the student population out there, so you can snap up the SilkFred styles you love, for less. Just be careful that magical 50% off doesn’t leave you eating beans on toast for the rest of term…

 

The Comfiest Dress

From casj drinks to day trips, this cute floral dress basically does it all. I love the comfy wrap fit, and that adjustable waistline makes it a perfect choice for lunch meets and dinner dates. While it’s the ideal dress for summer, you can defo get away with wearing it through spring – simply pop on a cardi and chunky trainers for some added warmth. Plus, it’s now only £22.40!

The Perfect Summer Dress

Celebrate the start of summer with the Arielle mini. The floaty fit and tiered design make this strappy mini totally bloat-friendly, so I’d recommend it for picnics, BBQs and al fresco drinks. Keep it casual with trainers and a cardigan or dial things up with heels and a smart jacket. Best of all, It’s now reduced to £12.50! Yep, you read that right.

Chic For Less

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again, you can’t go wrong with a little navy number. Lightweight and comfy, this elegant dress by Bella and Blue has a swish batwing shape that’s ideal for days at the races, fancy brunches and evening cocktails. Shimmy the skirt up to wear it as a mini, or pull it down for a knee-length look. Best of all, it’s reduced to just £21.

The Must-Have Trousers

You can never go wrong with wax coated trousers, sleek essentials that work just as well on club nights as they do at the pub. For daytime drinks, I’d wear with a simple tee and some comfy flats. If you’re getting ready for a night out, dress up these trousers with a crop top or slinky blouse.

The Low-Cost LBD

A sparkly LBD that costs less than a round of drinks? I’m sold. This slinky number is just right for fancy dinners, galas and end-of-year balls and, while it won’t break the bank, it’s guaranteed to win you some compliments in the girls’ loos. Pair with your go-to heels and a cute clutch.

Day-to-Day Denim

I’m literally counting down the days until I can wear mini skirts and dresses again, and I am particularly excited to pair this high-waisted denim skirt with my fave summer tops. Cheaper than my Pret order (don’t judge), this is a budget-friendly buy that’s perfect for park meets, weekend walks and brunch debriefs.
