Following the tip by one of its informants that the students of DRC (Daulat Ram College) are creating a fashion-frenzy in the campus, the DU Beat fashion police decided to hold a surprise visit to the college to catch the suspects red-handed. Here is how they confessed to their crimes:
“My top and jeans are from Nepal. The footwear is from Sarojini Nagar. I believe in dressing as per the occasion and not overdoing things. This helps in bringing out the true aspect of one’s personality.” –Karina Singhal, 1st year, English (H)
“My top is from Forever 21, jeggings and footwear from Zara and bag from Mango. For me, comfort supersedes any trend. I usually dress up for myself and do not believe in the concept of dressing to impress someone else.” –Somesa Gupta, 1st year, B.com (P)
“I bought the top from Myntra. The jeans are of Levis, footwear from Khan Market and watch is from DKNY. I love vintage and monotones and try to inculcate them in my dressing sense. For me, a great analog watch and basic footwear in the colours brown, black and white is something which should be a must have in one’s wardrobe.” –Aakriti Jain, 3rd year, English (H)
“The crop top is from Pantaloons, jeggings from Zara and footwear from Sarojini Nagar. I’m quite moody when it comes to dressing up. There are days when I want to keep it casual and then, on some days I want to draw attention. I usually prefer dresses as they complement my fashion sense and try not to follow the common trends to keep my style unique.” –Prachita Dinesh, 1st year, Bcom (P)
“The shirt is from Himachal Pradesh. The shorts are from Levis, the sneakers are from VANS. I avoid being too fancy. I think one should dress up keeping in mind their body type and what looks good on it. Casual and sporty is the way for me. And keeping in mind the colour palette, I always prefer light and bright colours.” –Dechen Choedon, 1st year, Political Science (H)
“I’ve got the tank top and Palazzo from a thrift shop in Gurgaon. The footwear is from my hometown, Rajasthan. I like loose clothes in this season which help one get through college in such heat. I’m also really fond of denims. I think any modification in jean, ripped or folded, or a denim jacket/shirt becomes an ideal piece of clothing which is both stylish and suitable for college life.” –Shristi Karwasra, 1st year, B.A (P)
