First Year In College? 5 Fashion Essentials You MUST Have!

Browse By

Hey girls! Aren’t you super excited about starting college? A whole new experience and one that you’ll remember all your life. I am pretty sure you’ve already started shopping for your college wardrobe and wondering what all to invest in. Almost in every Indian college notice boards, there are rules and regulations put up on “What to wear” and “What NOT to wear” or let’s just say “DRESS CODES”. This word makes almost every girl sad who wishes to wear their favourite outfits to college. Don’t worry; I have got your back! In this article, I have compiled 5 fashion essentials for college girls so that you don’t have to look anywhere else!


A pair of well-fitted denim goes a long way in any woman’s closet. As you start going to college you’ll realize that you’ll be too groggy in the morning to come up with a new outfit every day. Having that one pair of jeans that fit you like second skin always comes in handy! Get them in some basic colours of your choice.  You can pull them off with just about anything.


Basic tees and tops are a MUST have. Since you can’t be wearing fancy tops to college every single day, basic t-shirts are a must-have. You can wear them with palazzos, skirts and jeans and create three different outfits easily. (TIP: Wear a top with a palazzo to create a semi-classical look). T-shirts and tops are versatile babies and you most definitely will need them!


You might think these are casual shirts that you’ll probably never use. But trust me, casual shirts can be an absolute savior sometimes. If you want to give a basic tank top and jeans outfit a country look, a casual shirt is all you need. Besides, when you’re unwaxed and want to ditch the shrug, this one will come in handy. Pair it up with skinny fit denim or ripped denim.


I cannot emphasize enough on the importance of opaque black leggings in your closet. A pair of good quality leggings can open a plethora of outfits for you to choose from. I say opaque because you can team them up with slightly short tops as well. They can be worn for a casual look as well as for a formal occasion.  You can also wear them with Kurtis. Besides, they’re SO comfy!


Every desi girl needs Kurtis that always has her back. You can wear it with jeans, palazzos, leggings and look your best. Pair it with jhumkis and kolhapuri flats for the perfect desi girl style!

These are the basic requirements for a college going girl.

Now you need some perfect accessories to complete your look.


Invest on a sassy sunglass that will complement your every outfit and beat the heat in style.

Stacked bracelets are an easy way to accessorize any simple outfit. They don’t look OTT and add a glamorous touch to whatever you’re wearing.

Sneakers add a sporty-chic twist to any outfit and keep your feet clean and dust-free. Get a pair in a basic colour so you can wear them with literally anything.

Investing in a pair of soft coloured flats will drive away your footwear dilemmas forever! Buying neutral coloured flats will save you the hassle of finding the perfect footwear with every outfit you decide to wear.

There has to be one bag that you can use for the whole of your college life. A tote bag will fit in all your books, travel-size makeup and add a chic look to your outfit. Get one in a neutral colour so you can carry it with anything you wear.

Good luck for your first day in college, girls!
