5 Moss Bros must haves for your uni work placement

Taking part in a work placement during your university course is an awesome idea for many reasons. If you’re not 100% sure what you want to do when you graduate, by actually getting involved in work now you’ll be able to learn more of what you do and don’t like doing when the time comes. You could potentially bag yourself a job for when you do graduate and you might even earn some cash too!

They say that the clothes maketh the man and if you look the part, you’ll feel the part so I’ve teamed up with Moss Bros to find 5 must have items that will get you looking and thinking sharp.

1. The trench coat

As the winter nights start to draw in a decent trench coat is a must. This is the perfect jacket if you take on a placement which sees you in and out of the office during the day. Ready to fend off rain showers with a detachable quilted lining which can help keep you warm.

2. Statement suit

A good fitting statement suit will help you make the best first impression you can. This charcoal windowpane suit is a perfect blend of smart professionalism and a relaxed, laid back edge. It comes in a skinny fit which means the lapels and legs have been slimmed down for a modern, classic fit.

3. Card holder

If you’re in your suit, the last thing you want is a bulky wallet creating lines and bulges where you definitely don’t want them. Ditch the old receipts all of us blokes seem to collect and slim down your pockets with this super smart Ted Baker card holder.

4. Classic white shirt

You can’t beat a crisp white shirt for that classic look. This slim fit shirt is made using a dobby weave which means there’s a subtle texture to the fabric, adding the perfect amount of interest to this simple yet stylish shirt.

5. A quality pair of shoes

Shoes are another area you can add a bit of a twist but still look smart and professional, helping you to get off on the right foot. Rubbish puns aside, you can’t go far wrong with these double monk straps.
