Is class of 2014 the best dressed ever?

New students are putting their best foot forward - being dubbed history's best dressed new university intake.

From sporty socks to fashionable patterned or black tights , from stockings to comfortable leggings , September's freshers are putting on the style from their feet up.

In fact, they're splashing the cash like never before, according to a new survey on university fashion.

The poll finds that over one in four students are arriving at uni for the first time with wardrobes valued in excess of £2,000.

This totally turns on its head the age-old stereotype of university-goers wearing ageing boots, scruffy T-shirts and jeans, and jumpers in need of darning.

More than a quarter (28%) say they are heading off to campus with designer brands in their suitcase - with the highlights to be unleashed on the world during Freshers' Week festivities. Around 7% expect to arrive with clothes worth a total of under £500, while 83% claim there is pressure to create good first impressions with what they wear.

Johnny Tuxedo, the dinner suit and tuxedo specialist, carried out the research.
