Fashion Tips for College Freshers
With college season beginning, all freshers are set to begin a new journey of their lives. College is a place where freshers are forced to move out of their comfort zones and build a new life for themselves; a life very different from school life. This is the stage where the cocoon breaks and takes the form of a beautiful butterfly. College provides students with a space to develop their individual identity, to stand out, and to grow.
Identity development for all the freshers can be through the representation of their intelligence quotient, emotional quotient, and fashion quotient. “What you wear is how you present yourself to the world, especially today, when human contacts are so quick. Fashion is instant language.” ~ Miuccia Prada.
In a world where everyone is trying to make a place for themselves, fashion is a way of individual expression. Fashion means different things to different people, for me, fashion is a voice without a language.It is an external expression of one’s inner self.
Following are some fashion tips for all the freshers out there:
Clothes–Two most important things while choosing clothes are quality and comfort. Trust me, you want your clothes to be anything but comfortable when you are in the middle of your fifth lecture of the day. Thus, make sure to buy clothes that not only make you feel confident, but also comfortable. It may be summer dresses, tops, shorts, kurtas with leggings, jeans, pants, rompers and so on.
Accessories – Accessories are, in Michael Kors’ words, “the exclamation point of a woman’s outfit.” You can experiment, overturn the entire appearance of your outfit with some basic accessories. It includes earrings, rings, bracelets, watches, sunglasses, boho bands etc. My personal favorite is junk jewelry. Basic accessories like a pair of silver earrings can make your everyday outfit more appealing.
Bags–Add a unique touch to all your outfits with the right bag. You can usebasic shoulder bags and hobo bags on college days, for carrying books and other stuff. On occasions you can use clutches, satchels, sling bags to add a quirky touch to your style.
Shoes – No number of pairs is enough when it comes to footwears. While buying footwears for college, you must ensure to only buy comfortable products. You can buy shoes and sneakers to pair with your basic outfits. You can pair up your ethnic outfits with flats and juttis. You can also add a few pairs of block heels and wedge heels to match up with dresses.
Hairstyle and Makeup – With the perfect hairstyle and makeup, you can turn fashion into a style statement. Make your everyday look more glamorous with the right hairstyle. You can style up your hair in so many different ways, which can be learned through YouTube tutorials and other social media channels. For makeup, you can rely on moisturizers, lip shades, nail paints, kohl sticks, and eye liners etc.
So, embark on this new journey of life with the right style and the right amount of confidence.
