Budget fashion for college festivals

City colleges are still buzzing with intercollegiate cultural fests.

Apart from participating in them, for most students, the excitement extends to choosing the right outfit for the fests. We walked down the most fashionable streets of Mumbai and put together a few trendy and pocket-friendly looks you can flaunt.


Get that relaxed look with an oversized jersey and ripped jeans or straight pants. You can also opt for a a printed sweatshirt as the weather is still quite pleasant. Complete the look with a visor, a chunky watch and colourful sneakers.


For a head to toe Bohemian avatar, wear a floral tiara or head chain and a loose blouse. You can choose from tribal and floral prints or geometric pattern as well. Pair these with leggings or yoga pants.Gladiators or tan-coloured ankle length boots go best with this look.


A chic look for an intercollegiate fest can also be a head-turner. The pairing of elements has to be done smartly. Though it may come across as a little formal, it all depends on how you carry it. A cape top with a long centre or side slit over a pair of denims is apt for the occasion. A top with motifs will need no accessorising and if you choose a monotone top, stick to minimal accessories like a thin chain and a statement ring. Pick a pair of jazzy flats Rs 250to add some bling.
