Delhi University has to be the most happening place in the city this time round. With the admission season just round the corner, this is where you get to spot latest fashion trends. For those not sure about what works well at the Delhi University, here’s the HT City guide to DU dressing.

The fact that you are kicked about throwing away your school canvas shoes, does not mean that you go over the top and make your way to college in those strappy stilettoes. Delhi University swears by floaters and colourful flip-flops for comfort and style, that can be combined with ethnic as well as modern wear. Khan Market, Janpath have shops that stock all kinds of trendy flip-flops. For floaters, you can check out popular sports brands.

Satin and blingy salwar suits are more for wedding festivities and not the Delhi University. Cotton kurtas with patialas, jeans or even churidars are what one must wear if you really want to go the traditional way. Fab India, Cotton World, People Tree, Khadi are some of the places to buy these kurtas from.

Big is the word while choosing a bag for college. Big jholas, trendy tote bags are perfect for college. It should be big enough to carry all your stuff from books to makeup. PS: Your cool knapsacks that you used in school can also be used at times. Avoid carrying small bags that can only carry your make up and no books. Janpath flea market is the jhola Mecca of Delhi University.

Sport silver and junk jewellery. It’s time to say goodbye to little gold hoops that could be worn to school. In fact, avoid wearing gold jewellery when going to college. It works well for style and also safety.
