Summer vacations are coming to an end and it’s "Back to College" season now. College is an exciting phase where trying new trends and making new friends are foremost for everyone. Since college is the time you experiment with different styles, and develop your style, it’s important to have a list of things you must own before you head for class. Here are five accessories every college girl must own.
Tote Bag: The tote bag is the one that will carry everything that a college girl needs. Books, stationary, make up, phone, charger, medicines et all get dumped into the tote. So it must be big enough and not too over sized to stay on trend. Prints are trendy this summer and what better way to flaunt this trend than by owning a tote that has prints on it. Prints can range from florals, checks to downright quirky. Quirky prints tend to get noticed more. So if you want to catch someone's eye, be bold and go for a quirky printed tote bag.
Scarves: The scarf is a clever piece of fabric that only a few know how to wear. A scarf, if worn the right way can accentuate your look tremendously. A printed silk scarf is a perfect accessory with a white T-shirt and a pair of jeans. It can also be worn with a solid coloured salwar kameez. A hand block printed cotton scarf is also a classy option to own. You'll find that it's the easiest way to look instantaneously stylish.
Dainty Earrings: It is best to always own a few pairs of simple and elegant earrings. Buy them in neutral colors so that you can wear them with all kinds of clothes. Gold and silver colored earrings with simple detailing are the best to wear daily to college. Pink gold is another colour that is fashionable this season. If you have a round face, wear studs and small earrings. If you have an oval face and a slender neck you can pretty much wear any earring. But the rule of thumb is to stick to something not too elaborate.
Statement Necklace: A statement necklace is a must-have piece of jewellery in every girl's wardrobe. You have to pick the right necklace in order to complete your look. Tassels are trending big this season. Another trend seen on runways is the layer necklace. You can work this look in different ways. One way is to wear a long beaded necklace wrapped around to create two or three layers. Another more contemporary look is to flaunt a multi chain necklace in gold or silver. A fashion rule that will do you good to remember is when you wear a statement necklace keep the earrings minimal. Pair a statement necklace with ethnic wear or western wear as per your taste.
Body Chains: College days are a lot about partying just as much as studying! The trendiest accessory to wear at a party is a body chain. Wear it with a little black dress be rest assured that you'll be the most stylish girl at the party. If you're aiming for a rocker chic look, wear the body chain with ripped jeans and a black top. Make sure to wear the body chain with a figure hugging top or dress. If not, you will end up looking shabby.
Remember to experiment with fashion and stay stylish!
