1: Well Fitting Jeans
A few pairs of well fitting jeans are the most basic need of every college girl. Find a denim brand that fits you well and choose colours like blue, black and grey in a variety of styles and washes. Rotate them through the week to showcase a different style every day.
2: Basic Tees and Kurtis
Some days, you just don’t feel like dressing up and that’s when a basic tee comes in handy. Invest in some basic tees with cool graphic prints and look for colours that suit you well. Red, blue, yellow and orange tees are pretty versatile and apt for college wear.
You could also incorporate a few solid coloured kurtis and pair them up with jeans to give the traditional Indian avatar a modern twist. Or you could go completely traditional by pairing your kurti with basic leggings or a patiala.
3: Chic Cardigans and Shrugs
Those chilly winter months will leave you feeling lazy without a warm and stylish cardigan to complement your look. Wear it with a vest and a pair of jeans; keep your accessories to a minimal and you’ll feel confident to strut about the campus in style. Shrugs can also keep you covered and keep you looking stylish and fabulous when the cold weather hits your campus.
4: Colourful Backpack
Do you have to carry too many books to class on Tuesdays and Fridays? A sturdy yet stylish backpack will have you covered. Look for something feminine, colourful and creative yet versatile so that you can pair it up with a number of outfits.
5: Sling Bag
A sling bag that holds everything will add bonus points to your cool and casual look. Opt for sling bags in solid colours like black or white, which match well with any outfit. Or you can go all out classy with peach. Or pick up a bright colorblock sling to make a statement with any outfit.
6: Fancy Earrings
Keep a number of creative studs handy in your drawer and flaunt a new pair everyday to keep your cool and casual quotient high.
Simple metallic necklaces with fancy motif pendants can amp up every casual jeans and tee look. Even on days you have to get a little dressy for college, a fancy necklace can add to your overall charm.
8: Ballerina Flats
Casual ballerina flats offer great versatility and can be combined with any outfit to make your overall look memorable. Additionally, ballet flats are comfortable and will keep your feet looking gorgeous and feeling happy all day long.
9: Wrist Watch
Make a bold and refined style statement by investing in a stylish wrist watch. Metallic colours like gold, silver and rose gold and leather options in black, brown and red are popular now-a-days.
10: Bright Nail Colours and Kajal
Ditch that makeup kit when you head to class and keep your look natural, but make it a point to keep updating your nail colour for a funky, fashionable and youthful look. You can experiment with bright colours and nail art on a weekly basis to stay stylish. And, last don’t forgot to apply Kajal to add a nice touch to the face.
