Arranging your wardrobe before you step up for your college can be quite stressful. It can be so difficult to understand what you should discard and what you should add in your closet to ensure that you don’t look less than a diva yet can carry on a typical easy-to-go style. In case you too are soon going to attend college and are almost ready to jump up the market, check out this guide. From clothes to accessories, this guide has to be the Bible for every soon-to-attend college girl.
- Scarves and/or Stoles
- Dresses and Skirts
- Casual Flip-Flops
- Hair Accessories
Okay, so where do we start from! Jeans has to be the most basic essential for every college girl due to quite a lot of reasons like offering comfort, durability and style. Since college days calls for a lot of hectic schedule including tasks like attending daily classes, coaching centres and excursions, you definitely won’t ask for an apparel that would betray you all of a sudden.
Before heading out for college, make sure to get hold of at least 4 pair of quality jeans that would not only fit you well but would also help you survive throughout your semesters. You can at once opt for the dark washed skinnies or you can also check out the latest ripped ones’ collection. Whatever be the choice, make sure to include a couple of long-lasting pairs.
Next to jeans are leggings! Being extremely versatile, you can almost pair them with any kind of top. Be it a tunic or a simple tee, leggings can actually create an overall stylish look. In fact, not just with the Western outfits, leggings can also go great with ethnic apparels like kurtis and Anarkali kameezes. You can at once wear the basic mono-coloured leggings or can even avail some of the funky looking printed or denim ones. Comfortable and stylish, leggings are simply a must-have, no matter what!
Be it a simple white tee or those that has funky prints on them, T-shirts are something that you just can’t skip over. Grab a collection of different kinds of t shirts that can range from simple round necked to V necked. While a simple white tee should be a mandatory choice, thanks to its versatility of matching with various bottoms like hot-pants or jeans, don’t miss experimenting with other colours and kinds as well like striped, sloganed or the simple monochromatic ones.
Dressy or crop tops that come in various fun colours and in different fabrics is the next one in the hitlist. You can easily wear a dressy top under a jacket or simply by itself along with jeans and can still looking perfectly stunning. Being in college, try staying simple by avoiding extremely deep cut necklines and see-through tops. For a simpler and a more casual look, you can also opt for crop tops matching them with shorts or simply with skirts.
And how can we ever miss out kurtis, the most basic apparel for every Indian lady! Kurtis, be it cotton or synthetic, can be an excellent choice if you have ethnic preference. You can at once pair a short knee-length kurti with jeans or leggings, or you can also choose long Anarkali or fusion styled loose kurtis. Comfortable, versatile, cost-efficient and most importantly budget friendly, kurtis are just unmissable.
Adding a couple of scarves and stoles in your college wardrobe can seriously help extending your wardrobe in an elegantly stylish manner. Scarves that come in bright colours and of course in different patterns can totally recreate a simple look. In case, you are not more into short scarves, you can alternatively grab some ethnic looking stoles that can also help you reinventing your look in a whole new way.
Although these are not exactly must-haves for everyone, having one or two in your wardrobe won’t be a bad option either. If you are not quite into mini-skirts or dresses with shorter lengths, get along with the ones that can offer considerable coverage as for example till knees or beyond as it happens with maxi dresses, midi-skirts and light long skirts. The sole reason due to which why some girls go gaga over these is because they are easy to pair. You can match them with any kind or simply no accessory, a pair of sandals, a t shirt (for skirts) and can still look cute.
Casual flip-flops may at once seem to be insignificant for many girls, but trust me, they are really indispensable. During those parched summers, those adorable flip-flops can be your feet’s best comfy friends. And the best part is, you can wear them for college, for a beach hang-out, and can pair them perfectly well with either dresses, jeans or capris.
And how can any college girl skip those sexy looking high heels! High heels are bound to lift up just any girl’s spirit in no time. While black stilettos are must-haves as they can go along with any kind of outfit, be it with dresses, skirts or even jeans, you can keep trying with other colours and patterns as well. Give yourself a shot of a red lipstick and get that killer look instantly!
Watches may at once seem to be a simple time-piece but in reality, they can define your style a lot. You can easily give oversized watches a safe try as they are already in. However, in case you are looking for the metallic ones, try keeping them slightly loose so as to complement them for bracelets. When you are wearing skirts or cute dresses, floral patterned watches are an easy shot. But when you are planning to head for an interview, choose a more formal one with a simple and elegant design on it.
And to finally give yourself a final touch, grab a cool bag. Sling bags, backpacks, totes, canvas bags, there are so much to choose from! If bulky bags are not your thingie, sling bags, totes or canvas bags can be great. Whatever you choose, just make sure that it has enough room for accommodating at least your college basics like books, wallets and mobile device chargers.
12. Hair Accessories
While trying to catch that bus, you definitely won’t like hair waving around all over your face. Keep them in one place by using various hair accessories like hair bands and claw hair clips. Pamper yourself and create new look everyday with multiple colours, designs and patterns.
With all these, you are now easily ready to rock your college days with elegance, simplicity, convenience and most importantly style. If you have any more ideas, or if anything has been missed out, don’t forget to comment below.
