As I shared with you previously, Ben is starting college in September. He is so excited and will be keen to have no uniform, be more independent and of course, also be at college instead of school. When Trendhim offered to send a couple of items to Ben ready for college he was excited.

College style from Ben

Ben is a huge fan of football shirts and would live in those with trainers and tracksuit bottoms every day if he could. He did, however, wear a lovely burgundy shirt and navy trousers for his leaver’s party/prom a few weeks ago. Now he is going to college he is keen to try new styles and be an individual.

The range of accessories at Trendhim is such good value it means he can also buy other items and try out different looks until he finds what he loves.

Bags for college

Ben always took a backpack to school and is unsure if he will continue or change to another kind of bag. I guess a lot of that will depend on what he needs to take daily to college. He is doing a media course so may need to take a camera, laptop or similar.

This satchel-type bag from Trendhim is perfect if he needs a laptop bag that is stylish and will also fit a few other essentials too. This satchel is £69 from Trendhim and one of a huge variety.

Jewellery, watch etc

Ben has a smartwatch that he loves and is likely to use for college but wanted to experiment with a necklace or chain. Having looked on Trendhim he found a dog tag style one he liked and was impressed when you could even get it personalised.

Ben chose this skull dog tag and had it personalised with his initials B.M. on the back. It is perfect for him and he is keen to try it with different looks.

What do you think? do you think it suits him? This one is £39 from Trendhim and an extra £12 if you also wish to have some personalisation.


As Ben grows in independence he uses his wallet more and more so it is getting a little tatty so he was keen to get a new one for college. Trendhim has a great variety and the one Ben chose was alligator style.

It is perfect for Ben as it has plenty of card slots but also a zipped section for a little loose change or to keep something safe. This one is 100% leather inside and out and £35 from Trendhim.

Do you have a young person starting college or Post-16 soon? Are they looking for anything new? Hopefully, these ideas from Trendhim have given you both some ideas.
