Dressing for College

Post by cuterimza » Aug 30, 2007 Views: 2080

College fashion this year is all about being yourself and expressing your individuality through your wardrobe. So, if you are comfortable and can carry your outfit with confidence you can make a style statement no matter what you wear.




If you need help putting together some trendy outfits together, here are some must-haves:

Keep it bright
Make sure your wardrobe is filled with clothes in every colour of the rainbow, and that goes for guys as well. Flaunt bright, patterned shirts over a simple white tee-shirt or singlet. Pink continues to be a favourite, while bright greens and blues are popular.

Self-styled apparel spell attitude, so if you are in the mood to slash that pair of jeans or even that plain old tee-shirt, go ahead. And while you are at it, it would be cool to fill up those patches with an old sari border or just a sting of beads.

Skirts, jeans and capris are very popular and so are tank tops, off-shoulder tops and halter necks. It not so much about the brands as it is about the fit, so keep an eye out for good bargains. It's wiser to opt for variety rather than spend all your pocket money on that one designer outfit.
Casual is hip while overdressing is passe. The line between casual wear and party wear is fast diminishing, so pick outfits that can carry you through the lectures and straight to the discotheque.

College dress codes have inspired greater creativity when it comes to fashion and have led to the popularity of Arabic lehengas teamed with short tees or kurtis and dress shirts or long tops with leggings.

The sporty look of tee-shirt, jeans and trainers is out; and better coordinated clothing with matching accessories is in.
Accessorising is not restricted to just the girls, with guys investing accessories as imaginative as their clothes.

When it comes to belts, for girls hip belts on long tee-shirts are trendy, while guys can sport fancy belts on their low-waist jeans. Funky earrings, stone-studded rings, wrist bands, bracelets and watches are other ornaments both sexes can experiment with.

When it comes to cosmetics, colourful eyeliners and lip glosses are fun and attractive. However, going with the casual trend, make sure your accessories aren't too loud, they should complement your outfit and be just enough to complete the look.

Tattooing has come a long way and has now found a place in mainstream fashion. With its growing popularity, affordibility is no longer an issue and body art is fast becoming the rage.
You can now get a symbol that you identify with neatly imprinted on the nape of your neck, your ankle or even on your tailbone for as little as Rs 200. For macho guys, the shoulder area and arms are usually the canvas for a tattoo.

But for those of you who are not too keen on the permanence of a tattoo or the pain that getting one entails, don't fret. Temporary tattoos in a wide variety of designs and sizes are easily available and look as real as a permanent one.

Nail art is another trend doing the rounds. Nail art parlours offer a vibrant variety of designs accompanied by false nails as and when needed. Body piercing continues to be in fashion too.

But don't get carried away, subtle and neat work is in vogue when it comes to body art this season.
