What to Wear to College

The Summer is about to end and the monsoons are already settling in some parts of India. Come June and all fresh school and high school pass outs are getting jitters about their new college and new friends. But, what fears them the most is the questio  - "What to wear to college?"
I remember standing in front of my closet and trying out every single piece of clothing the night before my first day. Despite of prior shopping, I could not figure out the best 'first impression' outfit. Trust me, I regret each and every single piece I bought off the streets of Bandra. Four years back, there really was not much of online shopping and high street brands were much more expensive than what they are today.
Today, as I enter my final year of college, I believe college students have left no stone unturned with regards to expensive labels, street or online shopping. But, what I also noticed was that a lot of girls try to imitate others and they end up making a fool of themselves. Role models, bloggers and celebs are there to guide you to looking your best but you need to experiment a little and understand what suits your body the best.
Since, most colleges do not allow their students to wear revealing outfits such as shorts and skirts. You can make do with printed or colored trousers paired with a variety of tops.
If you have plans to go shopping, I suggest, shop online. Even Zara, Forever 21 and Mango have become super affordable and you do not want your classmate wearing the same top. Online shopping kind of makes your outfit exclusive.

Here is my guide to wearing subtle yet stylish clothes in your budget :


Limeroad Reach For The Stars Racer Back Top for 599 Rupees. Buy here : Loose Racerbacks are very comfortable when paired with shorts or jeans. Since you are at college, make sure you invest in a strapless bra. I have often spotted teachers scolding the students for their colorful bra peek-a-boo's.


Yep Me Carol Crop Top - 299 Rupees. Buy here: Crop tops have been a ranging trend since the past year. Trust me, they are completely wearable to college without a flashing stomach. Pair up your crop top with high waist jeans or wear a contrasting color tee underneath. 


Stalk Buy Love Bright Bloom Top - 649 Rupees. Buy here: A floral top can be easily worn solely or underneath a solid color blazer. And, if your college does not restrict you, pair it up with a leather skirt. 


Myntra Riot Women Blue Print - 599 Rupees. Buy here: I love how easily one can slip into a tank top. The color and print texture is perfect for the monsoon season. Pair it up with your good old ripped jeans! 


Jabong Meira Mega Sleeves Blue Solid Top- 399 Rupees. Buy here: For all those super boring lectures at college, add a little vibrancy and beat the monday blues with this super comfortable blue top from Jabong. 


Shopnineteen Double Love Printed Layer Top - 499 Rupees. Buy here: I have been constantly asked by friends about where to buy aztec print. I think aztec has been overdone and I do not adhere to what everyone is wearing. But, if you are still obsessing over aztec, Shopnineteen has the perfect aztec combo! Tuck it in your black jeans and leave people guessing if it is a crop top ;)

Invest in some printed bottom wear and pair it up with a basic solid color tee.

Youshine Sombre and Svelte Leggings - 999 Rupees. Buy here

Jabong N-Gal Multi Printed Legging- 299 Rupees. Buy here

Myntra Tokyo Talkies Women Blue Floral Print Trousers - 539 Rupees. Buy here 


Flipkart Tokyo Talkies Skinny Fit Women's Jean - 650 Rupees. Buy here


 And remember, wear comfortable clothes and define your own style.
