College is a place you absolutely should experiment with your style. Don't play it safe by restricting yourself to a sort of uniform - you've already done that in school for twelve years (not by choice, of course!). If you’re facing a dilemma about how to amp things up, we suggest you look for inspiration from your fave celebs and dig deep into your closet.
And, of course, read THIS!
1. Try The Deepika (H)Attitude!
She is one of the most beautiful actors in India, and her personal style NEVER disappoints us. A floppy sun hat and a nice pair of boots (to save you from the pee-fest from above - i.e., rain) can transform a basic outfit. And hey, don’t miss the classic red lips, yo!
