'Wear Nice Clothes' is the ultimate in procrastination for our writers who prefer to write satirical fashion commentary than actually do the work for their degrees. We love vintage shops, charity shops, clothes that last forever and customisation.

Individual style on Sheffield's streets.

We spent a murky November afternoon hunting down people with their own personal style until we started too feel a bit like stalkers and got too cold and had to return to our (equally cold) homes.

Sarah Barnes, a 3rd year at Sheffield University

  Sarah is wearing Topshop harem trousers that she got for £3 and wears because they are as comfy as pyjamas. Her scarf is also from Topshop, her cardigan belongs to her friend’s Nan and her bag is her housemate's. When she isn't borrowing clothes, she shops at Cow, Topshop, Ark and on Ebay.
Stephanie Danylyk, a 2nd year Sheffield Hallam student.

Stephanie hides her work uniform under a cosy fur coat that she got at Principles last year (she clearly was ahead of the fashion followers who have only just started working the faux fur). She got her hair band from Accessorize, but tends to shop at Cow, H&M and charity shops and loves All Saints.

Soven Kudsk – Iverson, a student at Sheffield University.

  The mix of colours and textures in Soven's look made him stand out in the crowd (and his colour coordinated scarf and gloves). Clearly well travelled, Danish Soven’s bright hat is from Finland, his scarf is from Nepal , his jumper is from Denmark and his trousers are from…..John Lewis. He likes to pick up bargains from Oxfam in Broomhill.
Gemma Marshall , Sheffield resident.

Gemma mixes American sneakers, a scarf from a boutique off Ecclesall Road and a coat by snowboarding make Nikita, with her Mum’s Mulberry handbag for an eclectic daytime look. She hates Meadowhall shopping centre and prefers to shop on Division Street and Fargate Street.

Adam, a 1st year student at Sheffield Hallam.

Adam makes a generic student outfit look cool with his vintage t-shirt from Blue Rinse in Leeds.. He’s even working the laptop bag. He hasn’t got round to shopping in Sheffield yet but he likes vintage stores.
