College is that time of your life when you can experiment with fashion as much as you like. Just like anything else in your life, you try out different chairs before you decide which one you like. In case of fashion you try following the style of your favourite celebrity or youtuber, read blogs and put in a lot of efforts before you finally know what a good fit is for you. Although, as good an experiment is with fashion, it’s important to follow certain rules when it comes to college fashion. These tips come from a place of experience and some really uncomfortable memories.
COMFORT COMES FIRST
Yes, there will be some special occasions like your freshers or college fests, when you can take out your glamorous heels. However, on an everyday basis, it’s mostly never a good idea. Try to remember that your college expectations are probably inspired by Dharma Productions and not real life experiences. Even on special occasions, stick to block heels, since you are going to spend most of it on muddy grounds or uneven floors.
DRESS FOR THE WEATHER
Since, most of the colleges in India, may not have central air conditioning, it’s important to dress according to the weather. If your college does have the facility, feel free to skip this point. Do not layer a lot in the summer, wear enough warm clothes in the winter, or else the weather is all that you will be thinking about.
Your hair have an important role to play in making your ensemble look more put together. Keep changing it up and experiment with different styles and go all out. This is the only area where you have no restrictions at all. Half-bun, top knot, messy pony, sleek hair, you can literally go for any hairstyle.
Follow this tip only during the summers, because sweat is always way too cruel to good make up. If you are keeping your clothes strictly functional, it’s natural that you would want to redeem yourself with make-up. You don’t have to go full face glam, but simply identify the parts of your face that need make up. Whether it is your eyebrows, eye lids, under eyes, skin or your lips, stick to powder products and you are good to go.
Minimal accessories, especially in the summers, are extremely important. It keeps the sweat at bay and you at relief. For bags, you carry any bag as per your requirement. For most colleges, you will have to carry notes and books, and hence, have to use either tote bags or bag packs.
