As the first day of college is around the corner, we are sure you are already confused about how to ace the fashion game on campus. Fret not, and follow our simple guide to keeping your personal style intact, without giving up on experimentation or comfort.

Making a statement

While it’s exciting to break away from the school uniform code, make sure you don’t get carried away by the new-found fashion freedom. Keep your college style fresh, breezy and comfortable. Pick up a pair of denim shorts, and style it in different ways. Pair it with an easy-fit white top, and finish your look with a fringed-hem kimono jacket. Alternatively, go for a simple, pastel-hued T-shirt or a fun neon-coloured shirt. If you don’t want to go short, a maxi skirt is your best bet. On campus, a bohochic look can never go out of fashion, so pick up a paisley print or tie-dye skirt and finish with a plain, sleeveless top.


Minimal make-up

When it comes to college beauty, understated is the right way to go, or you’ll end up looking too over-the-top for campus life. Start with investing in a good BB Cream. Try the new Fair & Lovely BB cream, a revolutionary new fairness cream that gives a make-up finish without any actual make-up. This expert product brings together the benefits of both foundation and fairness cream, and instantly covers spots, blemishes and dark circles to give you a natural make-up finish. Moreover, its SPF 15 PA ++ factor also protects you from the sun. So, as you discover college life on your feet and move about campus, you don’t have to be afraid of exposing your skin to the heat. Dewy, flawless skin is the way to go, girls! Finish with a pale-hued gloss and a stroke of kohl, and you’re all set for college.
