We felt it was time to show off the diverse and quirky style around campus here at York, so we collaborated with Dog & Bone Vintage on Gillygate, who lent us some vintage pieces to mix in with the wardrobes of four student models: Sara, Louise, Charlie and Matt. The eclectic items selected included a classic Levi denim jacket, an old-school satchel (the perfect size for your laptop, and guaranteed to make you stand out from the crowd) and a bold red coat, to name a few. Alongside high street pieces and personal favourites, we created a look which echoes the best of the 1960s through to the 1980s, brought forward and adapted for the fashionista of 2014. This proved to be an affordable way to have fun with clothes and look chic.

Louise MacDonald

Louise MacDonald chose her tartan mini dress with gold chain detail at the neckline as the foundation of her look, and found the perfect pair of black ankle boots to accompany it at the shop. As Louise is petite, we struggled to find a fur coat that wouldn’t drown her frame. Luckily, we found the ideal Levi denim jacket amongst the vast selection at Dog & Bone which looked fabulous with the rest of her ensemble.

Matt Durrant

Due to the logistics of organising a shoot on a Monday, Matt Durrant was unable to make it to Dog & Bone to sample their selection of menswear. Luckily, having attended York’s Affordable Vintage Fair on the 26th of January, he arrived looking dapper and decked out in a wonderful vintage shirt (the price was bartered down too…), burgundy knitwear, charcoal jeans and brogues – a wonderful example of how to mix vintage with everyday lecture-wear!

Sara Zangri

Sara Zangri takes a sense of style from her Italian roots. She brought along a (shockingly green) sixties mini skirt as the basis of her outfit, purchased recently from a vintage fair in York (and worn recently to a sports social!) The peach blouse with pearl button detail and tweed jacket from Dog & Bone was the perfect combination to offset it, and her choice of light tan satchel and high-street brogues from Dune brought her look together.

Charlie Benson

As soon as we stepped through the door, we knew that this Seventies dress was the one for Charlie Benson; the A-line cut is flattering to the maximum and the detail around the waist and the cuffs give it a unique flavour. Paired with black tights and her own spectacular heels, our Stage Editor was transformed immediately! After playing around with accessories, she opted for a pair of her own shades and a stunning slouchy red coat courtesy of Dog&Bone. Her dangling earrings from Urban Outfitters added a touch of Edie Sedgwick glamour.
