College fashion in summers needs to be simple yet sophisticated. And, let me tell you – it is not easy to strike that balance between uber relaxed and uber stylish fashion statement.
As new college sessions are just a month away, it is high time for you girls to face the scorching heat and move out at shopping places like Sector 17, 19, 22 or Elante for high-end picks (or simply sit at home and shop online). Start exploring latest fashion choices and mix them with your own style.
Make sure your fashion picks are not only trendy but also breezy and effortless to save you from the intense heat Chandigarh witnesses in summers. Here are some hand-picked latest fashion trends from head to toe for girls in Chandigarh.
A) Colours and Prints
- Colour Choice
Summers are all about light and happy shades. You can never go wrong with whites in this hot weather. A little white dress with caramel or tan sandals and bag can make you look chic and feel fresh. Keep your vibe bohemian with a white blouse and shorts or billowing maxi skirt with a single piece long necklace. All white is also a hit these summers. For this, you must pick different shades of white and textures of fabric. Apart from white, infuse a lot of pastels in your sunshine wardrobe. Hot colours of S/S 2015 are aqua green, powder blue, custard yellow, tangerine orange, baby pink, and marsala red.
- Printed Picks
Cheer up! Our all-time favourite floral prints are in vogue this year too. These trends can be spotted everywhere, from pants, skirts, blouses, and dresses to shoes and sunglasses. Pick these to embrace the romance and joy of summer and celebrate your girlish charm. You can also bring out the wild child in you and adorn retro trends of gingham and polka dots. Other textured trends include sailor nautical stripes which will make you look classy and cool in summers with navy and white stripes. Also, you can go for print on print look with bold coloured bag and shoes.
B) Key Trendy Pieces
- Favourite piece of denim
Denim has made a huge comeback and can be found on dresses, rompers, jumpsuits, shirts but its jean genius is what catches our eye always. Classic blue jeans can never go out of style as these are a test-proven wardrobe saviour. If you can comfortable carrying colourful jeans, go for jeans in trendy colours and team these with neutral coloured tops.
- Summer dresses
You cannot go through summer college session without wearing a lot of summer dresses. These breezy dresses allow easy movement and are super comfortable to wear. They help you to put up with the scorching heat of the summer sun, while ensuring that you look pretty as the picture. So make sure you have a few of summer dresses like shirt dress, rush skater dress, and billowing midi dress in your wardrobe to help sail you through the demanding summer.
- Summer skirts
Skirts are a classic symbol of femininity. These bring out our chic and girly side and are very comfortable, especially in summers. If the dress code in your college is relaxed, then you can happily go for knee-length skirts or else ankle-length skirts in the likes of broomstick skirts, billowing skirts, gored skirts, A-line skirts, and maxi skirts are always safe options. However, you should avoid wearing full-length skirts in summer rains to avoid getting hemline of your skirt drenched.
- Crop tops
A bustier crop top is one of the summer must-haves for us these summers as midriff baring, the hottest 2014 fashion trend, is a top trend this season too. Pair a neutral coloured top with high-waist shorts, skirt, or palazzo pants for a look that suggests hot summer fashion.
- High-waist shorts
If you are game for it, get your hands on a few high-waist shorts as these are the hottest thing this summer. These transport you back into the golden vintage era while lending a modern vibe. Buy these in denims as well as cotton to give you a more elegant look than their low-waist versions. These will visually lengthen your legs and make your waist appear slimmer.
- Kurtis and suits
A Chandigarh college girl’s wardrobe is incomplete without a few kurtis and matching leggings. Patiala salwars and pajami suits are also a rage among Chandigarh girls. You can wear a plain kurti with a floral printed patiala salwar. But, if you have a short height, go for normal salwars with knee-length kurtis. Complete your desi look with some chic jewellery pieces like wooden bangles, rings, and anklets, fashionable footwear like Punjabi jutti and traditional or modern handbags, depending upon the style statement you wish to make.
- Large and stylish bags
Bags are a must-have for every college girl. As you will have to carry your books and files in your bag, invest in bags which are super spacious as well as fashionable. If you usually like to wear a t-shirt and jeans and your style is relaxed, a backpack will be apt for you. On the other hand, if your style statement includes more of dressy tunics, skirts, and kurtis, you must go for a hobo, tote, saddle, messenger, or satchel bag. One of the hottest trends in 2015 fashion circuit is a leather fringe bag. It will give you a boho chic look and will go with almost everything.
- Step into college life
Summer footwear must bespeak ease, wearability, and style. Thus, you can never go wrong with flats. Ankle strap flats, strappy sandals, and gladiators are a huge rage this year. These go well with summer dresses, skirts, and shorts to give you an instant glamorous look. You can also opt for sneakers or heels as per your comfort level. On rainy days, avoid leather or fabric footwear and rather pick rubber ballet flats to avoid locking-in the moisture.
- For your eyes only
2015 is all about accessorising in bold colours. Go for sunglasses or glasses frames in pops of solid colours for a youthful and fun streak. Equally chic in summers are white frames which are a safe take on retro fashion. You have a lot of options among sunglasses to pick from viz. classic-cool aviators, vintage round, glamorous wayfarers, and flirtatious cat eyes, depending on the shape of your face.
- Hair and makeup
College days in summers for girls can get long and soggy. Thus, you must don minimal makeup and keep your hair simple. Go for this season’s fresh-faced look with a single swing of black eyeliner and swipe of nude or light pink lipstick. You can ace the barefaced no-makeup look if you have a glowing and luminous natural face. For this, you must follow a strict skin-care regimen and diet in summers. Leave your hair natural and avoid all types of heat styling procedures and sprays to avoid damage as you go out in sun for your classes. Either let them loose if you have short hair length or tie them up in a high or relaxed ponytail or plait with parting or high puff. For a break from everyday look, you can go for fishtail braid, messy bun, sideways French braid, and trendy headbands, clips, and hairpins.
Though I understand how important looking great in campus is for you, I would suggest you to carefully study your college policy in regard to dress code before picking up any style. Also, talk to your seniors and observe how much leniency does your college exercise in allowing Chandigarh girls to show off their college fashion quotient.
