Back to College - Outfit Ideas

     College began some days back and we are just about learning how to cope with it. It is tough to be pulled out of the beautiful holiday mood where waking up before 12 pm was a joke, and being thrown back into the normal world where the day starts before sunrise. Heck, most of the days last month we wouldn't even have slept at 5 am, let alone wake up at that hour.

      Anyway, putting the cribbing aside, today we are introducing a new series 'Back to College' wherein we'll help you bounce back into college life with ease and style ;) We totally understand how difficult it is to make good sartorial choices at odd hours in the mornings when you can hardly open your eyes. So today we'll show you 4 simple looks you can keep in mind while dressing up for college. Here goes the 1st post in the series, let us know how it is :)

       Look 1
College Look
     On those rainy mornings when the weather is gloomy and so are you, let you mood be expressed through your outfit in this simple yet chic combo. A plain gray tee with bright blue jeans topped off with a pair of Converse and a cute backpack is a great college ensemble and highly comfortable too.

College look 2
  We've always loved the sailor look which we didn't know had a name before. But thanks to our Blogger friend Ila Johari's recent informative post we found out it is called the Nautical trend. This trend is not only fun to try but also very trendy this season. Give it a try with the above combo as these pieces can be easily found at shopping hubs near you.

Outfits for monsoon

Dresses are not only meant for summers but for rains too. In fact they are one of the best ways to kick away those floody rains! A pop of color like this dress is the best way to up your gloomy day. What if the weather is not treating you right, you can! We have been in absolute love with the yellow and blue combination.

Look 4
College Fashion

You don't actually have to buy a different set of clothes for the rains. Incorporating your summer crop tops and trendy tie die skirts one can easily shift from day to night. Wellington boots are one of the best investments for the rains, as they keep your feet dry and completely protected from infection. We like to put on some Vaseline and  socks as they keep our feet soft and moisturized.

Tell us which one of these outfits will you definitely try and which you will give a miss in the comments section below.

For a complete shoe guide on what to wear during the rains you can hop on to the Chic Accessorizer Blog where we've done a guest post recently.
