The leaves are changing colors and so are the items we are wearing. But the fact that CBS students are still fashionable is never changing. This week, it is pretty interesting to see how students at CBS style themselves in stressful exam preparation time, or while some are looking forward to having an autumn vacation. As usual, we went around campus this week to find out how you get the perfect autumn wardrobe, and we got inspired by cool hats, warm jackets and cosy knits.

Once again, remember, we will be going around campus every Thursday being sneaky peaky, so watch out for us – the style spotters! Maybe you will be spotted next week!

Any shopping tips?
Always find a good offer and don’t buy too much.

Something like what I am wearing right now, but it would be different if I have to go to work – then I would wear a shirt and something more formal.
What is your favorite color for this season?
Blue is always good!
What is your exam outfit?
That is a difficult one; we don’t want to look too fancy and not too trashy. So I would wear something like a professor – shirt and maybe with a cardigan.
Where do you usually go shop?
Acne or some Swedish brands.
Favorite shopping city?
Berlin since it is not so far.
