Most college students can hardly find any time after their studies and extracurricular activities to sit and think of a look for themselves. But you don’t need to spend a lot of time or money to look stylish. All you need is an eye for pairing the right pieces together. Check out our fashion tips for college students. (And yes, you can thank us later.)
1. Ripped Jeans
Distressed and tattered jeans never looked as cool as now. Sport yours with a striped, loose full-sleeved tee. This style is great for sporty girls.
Styling tip: These jeans can be paired equally well with flat ballerinas and high heels. Make your bun high and messy, or leave your hair loose—you will look great either way.
2. Maxi dress with layer
If you don’t like fitted clothes but want to make a statement, try this look. A maxi dress, with a checkered shirt worn as a layer, looks uber cool on any given day. Plus it makes running between classes so much easier!
Styling tip: Sling on a cross bag and try either a chunky bracelet or a long neck chain and flat gladiators. Keep your overall look unkempt.
3. Hot pants with knitted top
If you love wearing hot pants, try teaming them up with an oversized knitted top. This style is not only cool, but also easy to put on, even on your busiest days.
Styling tip: Ankle boots always look cool with this look. A nice cowboy hat would make it cooler.
4. Denims, tee and a cardigan tied around waist
This is one of the oldest and most familiar looks on college campus. But then again it never fails.
Styling tip: Add a beanie to make this style look cozy and casual. High suede boots will make it trendier.
5. Basic tee tied at the waist with checkered shirt
If you love the 90s, try this look. A simple basic tee, tied at the waist to define your figure, a loose checked shirt and ripped jeans. Finish your look with a pink swipe on your lips, and you’re ready to rock.
Styling tip: Carry a fringed bag and wear suede ankle boots to rock this look.

6. Wide-legged denims with shearling coat and glasses
This is for those who love dressing down. It is the perfect low-key ensemble for all those low-maintenance look lovers. The glasses add just the right amount of nerdiness.
Styling tip: Go without any makeup to rock this style. Neatly parted but partially combed hair looks sexy with this look.
7. Tomboy look
If you are bored of denims, try these loose pants. Team them up with a sweatshirt-like graphic tee and leather sports shoes for a hip-hop look.
Styling tip: Add a long chain and cap to complete the hip-hop look. This style is best suited for tomboyish personalities.
8. Frock with a jacket
For a more feminine yet casual look, team up a nice neutral-coloured high-low frock with a leather jacket. It’s sexy yet practical.
Styling tip: A huge bag, round hat and glasses will make this style more high-street.
9. Crushed skirt with tee
Here is the perfect breezy style for college campuses. The crushed skirt, teamed with a long-sleeved top makes the outfit cool and super hot at the same time.
Styling tip: Choose a neutral-coloured skirt so you can wear it with different colours each time. And don’t forget to match your nail paint with your tee.
10. Long front-buttoned skirt
This look is the perfect mix of comfort with statement-making style. A long front-buttoned skirt with a front-buttoned white blouse tied at the waist looks amazingly trendy without trying too hard.
Styling tip: Consider a short bob this season, and this look will seem like it’s straight out of a classic movie.
11. Dungarees with a twist
Take your love for dungarees a step further. Wear dungarees with a full-sleeved slogan tee. Now for the twist—unbutton the dungarees at the top and let them hang loose.
Styling tip: Team up this look with high sports shoes, red lips and nerdy glasses for a classy look.
