T-Shirt - £8

The tee is a Vanbrugh classic, available in grey, black and white or all-white. With a crew neck and short sleeves, this classic fit cotton tee is perfect for sporty and summer vibes. A casual dressing essential, the light tone complements your everyday outfit and will help to bring out the colour in your eyes. It even comes with Vanbrugh printed on the chest so you can boast to all your friends.

Old-School College Sweatshirt - £16

By far the most popular accessory in Vanbrugh, this timeless piece is both comfy and highly fashionable. A simple, lightweight sweatshirt is a must in any wardrobe and the Vanbrugh Sweatshirt fits the bill perfectly. In a super soft, air spun yarn for a super-soft finish, it is weighted to keep you cosy throughout the day. To keep the style stakes up there with comfort, the sweatshirt has had the college name printed in an imperial purple to impress all on lookers. Guiding us smoothly into transitional dressing, this will look just as great with sweatpants as it will with a white shirt and jeans, which is good because you’ll never want to be without it.
