Stressed But Well Dressed: College Fests

Long lectures, endless projects, expected attendance: level impossible.. And despite this whats the one thing we love about college- COLLEGE FESTS! Spending the whole month preparing for the fest, missing classes because there’s ‘oh so much work’ and finally the feeling of accomplishment when the fest is a success. But who has time to think about what to wear. Given we get that one college t-shirt (which is our proudest and only souvenir from college) ,we still need to make a statement with it. Here are some tips and advices to make that ‘one simple t-shirt look’ different !

1. Weal bright pants or patterned leggings.

4. Sling bag it – you wont even realize how convenient it is till the fest is over.


5. Pick up an interesting pair of shades, the funkier the better!

Say you’re not totally into the whole spirit of wearing the college t-shirt, here are some do’s and donts of what you can wear instead

  • Try sticking to the college colours
  • Be modest, don’t opt for low cuts and extra tight fits
  • Dress for a college fest, not for a night out in town
  • Accessorie your outfit with an oversized bag or a scarf or maybe even some interesting headgear
  • Avoid heels! You cant imagine the amount youll be running around

Now, lets talk about the cultural night. It says cultural night, not a big fat Indian wedding. Please stay far FAR away from big chunky jewellery, suits and sarees that have the reflection power of a disco ball and those slits and cuts which might attract unwanted attention. When you go for a cultural night, wear something traditional and simple. Something that will make you look like a college student and more importantly fit into your college crowd!
