Student goes for comfort when it comes to going out

Twenty-two year old student student Jane Mitten came home for Christmas looking forward to spoiling her beautiful niece Scarlett. She was also looking forward to relaxing at her Enniskillen home with the rest of her family.

Jane, who is a Learning Disability Studies student at Manchester University, excitedly entertained little Scarlett as she changed for this week's fashion shoot.

Like most daughters, Jane had dipped into her mum Karen's wardrobe prior to arriving.

"I'm not crazy about fashion," Jane admits. However, her mum, who owns Fermanagh Cottage Industries, knows the value of shopping locally and Jane regularly nabs her pieces. Indeed, she has chosen items from local stores, particularly Crabtree Cottage and Classics, for the majority of this week's fashion shoot.

"Fermanagh Cottage Industries has been in four generations of our family for 52 years so I understand the importance of supporting local businesses," Jane says. However, she also likes the high street favourites such as Topshop and New Look.

Jane opts for comfortable clothes while out and about, attending her university classes. However, she can carry off the glitzy party-girl look while socialising with friends; both at home and in Manchester.

For her first outfit, Jane models the county chic look with cream button detail jeans and a tweed jacket with suede elbow patches, both from Noa Noa at Crabtree Cottage.

She teams this look with a white Jigsaw shirt and her mother's brown Berson boots. "There's a story behind these boots because they are the first pair of boots dad bought mum," Jane explains.

"I like the country, horse riding look," she adds.

Her second outfit is almost over-shadowed by her cute six-month-old niece Scarlett, who wears a red and white flower print dress with a matching red cardigan from Dunnes Stores.

Meanwhile, Jane shows her casual side with a cream chunky cardigan from Classics, Cross Street Enniskillen. Underneath she wears a blue and white blouse from Whitestuff. Her brown boots with tassels are from Sloans and she completes the colourful Christmas look with a stripy woolly scarf.

A peach chiffon blouse with black detailing also suits the brunette, who teams it with a slim peach patent belt and a grey wool scarf; another stylish but comfortable look.

Finally, Jane shows off her Christmas present and dons a nude gem-beaded cami top and a black ribbed-hip skater skirt; both from Topshop. She added black shoe boots from New look and a black jacket from Crabtree Cottage, to complete the party-girl look. Her bracelet is from Argento and her watch from Mercers.

"I am looking forward to going out with my friends from home," she says. "But I have one exam to revise for too."

The former Devenish College student is looking into teaching as a possible future career.
