School Uniforms are out: A Sixth Formers Guide to a Cheap but Snazzy Wardrobe

You can’t deny it. One of the glorious realisations you had when starting sixth form, was that you no longer had to wear THAT school uniform…

Generic pond water tone, red, green, grey and blue anyone?

You’ve already had a few great months of it, and this is only the beginning. If you go onto uni, you’ll have a few more blissful years of fashion freedom too.

But with great freedom comes great spending on the latest clothing trends. 

So, we’ve compiled a list of budget-friendly retailers. All too help you look snazzy, minus the large price tag.!


Because you can always trust your friendly neighbourhood hennies for the boujee basics. 

H&M’s basic range is timeless yet effective. And better yet, you can bag yourself a polo neck and skirt, or a hoodie and outdoor appropriate joggers!

We’ve popped a few of our faves below for you...


(Left: Hooded Top £9.99 & Joggers £17.99

Right: Fine-knit jumper £8.99 & Fine-knit polo-neck jumper £12.99) 

Cheap, cute, and there are discounts and offers almost everyday on Boohoo. From 30-50% mark down offers, to £1 next day delivery. You’re sure to find a nice selection of affordable outfits to get you through sixth form on this site.

Here are some must haves...


(Left: Slash Neck Crop Fisherman Jumper £8.40 & Tie Waist Check Trouser £14 

Right: Crew Neck Fisherman Knit Jumper £8.40 & Slim Fit Rigid Chino Trouser £11.20)


It wouldn’t be a bargain clothing list without the infamous Primark. £2 for a pack of pants or £4 for a pair of socks for everyday of the week? Primark’s got you sorted!
