Colleges are ready to kick-start with much buzz and bustle. This also means there will be a never-ending packing, trying to fit every wardrobe piece and essential in that cramped-up dorm room, endless all-nighters, stacks of instant noodles and snacks, deadlines, clubs and juggling through various activities like a pro…you get the drift! Phew! Just the thought of it all stresses us out. Worry not! Stay upbeat and stylish with these new fashion trends as you sail through college life.
This is the selfie era where you just can’t afford to look careless and run-down. Even the geek crowd are catching up and have an exclusive fashion quotient of their own. So why should you be left behind? With this all-encompassing list you’ll be geared up to face the college heat.
All Things Denim
Denim is one apparel that can never go wrong whichever way you decide to carry it. Own them as jeans, jackets, chambray shirts, skirts…oh those endless possibilities! Invest in a pair of super-comfy yet in-vogue jeans. It could be dark denims, stone-washed or ripped. Take your pick and flaunt your jeans as you trot out and about the campus.
Tops, Shirts And Blouses
It is quite obvious that any amount of tops can never suffice for a college girl. Everyday classes, club meetings, parties, fests, etc. demands a new look customized for that particular event. Experiment with the color palette and abandon monotony. Apart from the functional staple linen tank tops and V-necks, go for modish yet demure style statements. The classy peter-pan collar blouse, bell-sleeves, dress-shirts or peasant tops, whatever suits your frame, go for it! Remember the key lies in mix-n-match.
Jazz it up with a jacket that can be monotone or multi-hued with the purpose of seamlessly blending with most of your clothes. Also, do not forget to buy your fair share of scarves and stoles from the incredible collection available nowadays. It preps up any look in a jiffy.
An all-purpose chic college bag which is handy yet fits all your nitty-gritty is just as necessitous as other accessories are. Also, a statement watch and chunky-funky jewelery pieces are some of the other options to add glam and glitz effortlessly.
A Dressy Affair
The entirety of a nice little dress will never fail to leave you amused as there are so many colors out there. Explore different shades and pop of colors. They give you an edgy yet subtle look and it’s a fashion crime to not include it in your wardrobe. Couple of sundresses for frolicking around along with layered, peplum or stripped ones suit everyone whether your pick is boho or urban.
In order to keep up with the college calendar, one cannot ignore the importance of good pair of trousers in dark neutral colors. Take on those interviews and internships with bang-on sass and confidence. To bring out the feminine dainty side, a skater or jersey skirt will do wonders. Twirl around and make heads turn. Another essential item which is a must-have is a pair of snug tights and jeggings.
College shopping whether we like it or not, cannot be ignored. It’s that time when you’re busy weighing your options not just about your academic orientations but for your wardrobe as well. You’re in a dilemma to fit the in-season clothes within the allotted budget.
You want to stand out without being too harsh on the eyes. You cannot own the whole store but the idea of repeating too often is nightmarish for you. The best way to curb these problems is smart shopping. Thrift stores and flea markets have always been a favorite with the college-goers but the soon catching up trend is that of online shopping. Heavy discounts, easy coupons, humongous trendy collection, free delivery….looks like your prayers have been answered!
