There’s a lot to be said for comfort. While we like our trends here at ASOS HQ, we also understand that, sometimes, a leather panel T-shirt doesn’t necessarily make sense for coffee with friends.
 
Plus, if college, sixth form, uni or any environment where sitting down in lectures for hours is your everyday backdrop, getting the whole casual-cool thing nailed is key if you want to be bored in style and comfort.
 
So let’s start with the perfect jacket. We’re not ready for full-on parkas, so a cropped, lighter jacket will do nicely. 
 
A cool printed T-shirt on top is always a win, naturally. And down below, play around with some of the new textured trousers doing the rounds this season. Think fleck fabric or wool-mix tailored joggers.
 
Never underestimate the power of the perfect backpack either. Right now, the more outdoorsy (or ‘utility’ in superhero speak) it looks – the better.
