We spoke to ASOS interns about the clothes you need to upgrade this year

Come February, the shine of "new year, new me" has worn off; we've slumped back into our old habits and those well-intended new years resolutions lie dead in a ditch.

But it's not too late to bring some vitality into your life - we've spoken to students working for ASOS, at the forefront of fashion, about mixing up your wardrobe for 2018.

Here's how to give that old style a refresher and be the best possible version of yourself this year.

The updates

The interns at ASOS took a look at the most popular campus staples of 2017, and gave us some hot tips on how to update them for this year.

If you wore a puffer jacket...

Jonny Teasdale, Leeds: Puffer jackets were huge for students, for boys and girls - it was a classic campus look to really have that two-sizes-too-big look, but students love experimenting and silhouettes are changing as a result of this.

You should wear patterned and tailored jackets in 2018

Maisie Saywell, Nottingham Trent: Now smarter, tailored jackets are the popular thing on campus, rather than bigger puffer coats.

Katie Banks, Leeds: A move towards patterned jackets is definitely happening - they pack a punch but they're still chilled enough to wear around uni. 

Katie: The sportswear revival is also huge at the moment - a jumper with a big logo is a 2018 essential.

Jade Romero, Leeds: People are definitely switching it up and styling their jackets differently. I'm a big fan of putting something really bright underneath, like a bright polo-neck or a scarf.

Shani wears:

Look 1: ASOS Jumper with High Neck and Stripe Ripple Stitch, Selected Floral Print Jacket, ASOS Denim Pelmet Skirt in Midwash Blue, Nike Air Max 95 Trainers in Mushroom

Look 2: Champion Crew Neck Sweatshirt with Script Chest Logo, ASOS RIDLEY High Waist Skinny Jeans in Clean Black

Jonny: Oversized blazers and jackets are really popular in menswear - they contrast with the old puffer look by going in a very boxy, sharp direction instead.

Katie: Sheepskin or borg coats and jackets are also becoming very dominant. That teddy bear material is so comfy - pieces like that are a great staple to wear to lectures or the library.

Zack wears:

Look 1: ASOS T-Shirt with Crew Neck in White, Reclaimed Vintage Inspired Relaxed Blazer in Mini Dogstooth Check, ASOS Skater Jeans in Black, ASOS Smart Leather Slim Belt in Black with Edge Emboss, ASOS Midweight Chain

Look 2: ASOS T-Shirt with Crew Neck in White, New Look Borg Jacket in Stone, ASOS Skater Jeans in Black, ASOS Smart Leather Slim Belt in Black with Edge Emboss, Reebok NPC II Trainers in White, ASOS Midweight Chain

If you wore skinny jeans...

Maisie: Skinny jeans embodied the relaxed student vibe for boys and girls alike - but the updates coming in are way more comfortable for the everyday, and look just as good.

You should invest in baggier, straight-leg jeans in 2018

Jade: Ripped mom jeans are absolutely everywhere, like 'cool older sister jeans'. Where before, we had very tight, skinny jeans, the new look is looser - it's much more chilled out and distressed.

Maisie: Girls are wearing baggier jeans, just like boys - there's a real trend coming in of straight or wide leg jeans which has more of a 90s feel.

Katie: Flared trousers or culottes are another chilled alternative to skinny jeans. You can style them in the same way, but they give your look more of an edge.

Shani wears:

Look 1: Fred Perry Wreath Logo T-Shirt, ASOS Barrel Leg Boyfriend Jeans in Washed Black with Knee Rips, Nike Air Max 95 Trainers in Mushroom, Glamorous Black Western Stud Detail Jeans Belt

Look 2: Vero Moda Tall Wide Leg Luxe Trouser, River Island Flute Sleeve, Scallop Trim Crop Top, Converse Chuck Taylor All Star High Top Black Trainers (just seen)

Jonny:  The distressed denim look is going to be massive. Even if you can't afford to chuck out your skinnies, it’s so easy to get a pair of scissors and rough them up.

Even just cutting off the hems to make them raw and a little cropped will make your jeans really cool and current.

Maisie: We're seeing a lot more straight-leg jeans in menswear - for example, skater jeans and Dickies are becoming really popular now.

Zack wears:

Look 1: ASOS T-Shirt with Crew Neck in White, Only & Sons Skinny Fit Jeans with Raw Hem in Stretch, Reebok NPC II Trainers in White

Look 2: ASOS T-Shirt with Crew Neck in White, ASOS Skater Jeans in Black, Adidas Originals EQT Cushion ADV Trainers in White

If you wore basic tops...

Jonny: Basics are obviously essential - when you're on a student budget you've got to invest in pieces you know will last, and we're seeing a lot of good quality, simple pieces already in 2018.

You should mix it up by wearing a motif tee in 2018

Jade: Small accent tops are the new Breton top - white, cropped t-shirts with a small emblem on will be everywhere on campus.

Jonny: Patches or motifs are really prevalent on t-shirts, as they have been on jackets and jeans. You can even buy little patches cheaply online and customise a plain white or stripy tee to update it.

Shani wears:

Whistles Exclusive De Rien Embroidered T-Shirt ASOS RIDLEY High Waist Skinny Jeans in Clean Black 

Katie: The "flash trash" trend is just rising and rising. Big, sporty logos, patterns and colours make a bold statement but you can easily wear them with jeans and still look chilled.

Zack wears: ASOS Oversized Short Sleeve T-Shirt with Bright Stripe,  ASOS Skater Jeans in Black

Shani wears: Champion Crew Neck Sweatshirt with Script Chest Logo, Tommy Jeans Tracksuit Pant with Taping

Jonny: 90s sportswear is massive, and I think it will keep getting bigger. There's a lot of performance-led sportswear coming in, I've noticed a lot of mixing athleisure with jeans for an 'everyday' vibe.

Maisie: Sports brands have fast become staples, so I think we'll see a lot more of those in place of plainer pieces. Everyone is wearing things that are branded and referencing streetwear trends in their looks.

Zack wears:

Look 1: ASOS T-Shirt with Crew Neck in WhiteASOS Skater Jeans in Black, Adidas Originals Vintage Track Jacket in Navy, Reebok NPC II Trainers in White (just seen), ASOS Midweight Chain

Look 2: ASOS Oversized Short Sleeve T-Shirt with Bright Stripe, ASOS Skater Jeans in Black
