Current fashion trends in Delhi University

A month has elapsed since the session started and campus streets seem to be bustling with enthusiastic and sunny freshers! With fresh blood come fresh trends and this year, the fucchas really seem to be making tons of fancy fashion statements. DUB went on-field to investigate. Here are the findings of our thorough enquiry:

 The NY Tops
These tops have made a huge impact on the dressing choices this semester! Found in almost every corner of campus markets like Kamla Nagar, these tops are sporty. The most popular variants are the black-white and navy blue-white NY tops. These are usually paired with denims including shorts, jeans and skirts.

The Striped Long Skirt
Long skirts have made a comeback in a huge way, especially the long, straight-cut skirts, with slits on either side. What makes these skirts worth wearing? The touch of elegance they bring to the entire look. The ones with stripes are the most common.
The Palazzo
They arrived in the market last year, took a quick sabbatical during the winter months, and returned with a bang this semester. Yes, it’s The Palazzo Pants we’re talking about. The reason for their popularity is multi-pronged- They’re fluid in form and flatter all body types, along with being loose and comfortable.

The Indo-Western Fusion Attire
Boys and girls have been taking to this trend quite effortlessly, batch after batch. Herein, we saw girls looking pretty in long, Pakistani kurtas or short FabIndia style kurtis, often paired with Patiala salwars or Gujarati-style ghagra skirts.  The men, on the other hand, were seen wearing khadi kurtas and when the weather permitted, Nehru jackets.
The Distressed Denim
It’s ironical that a pair of torn denims today costs more than an intact pair of jeans. But fashion itself is a paradox, and defining fashion’s crazy streak are The Distressed Denims. They’re rugged and grungy, yet look fabulous with crop tops, sporty jerseys and fancy party shirts alike. They’re equally flattering on guys and girls. They’re in fact, the much needed change we wanted to see in the usual pair of denims.

A debater, a scholar, a fashionista, she is more of an outdoors person who likes to run 6-8 km a day, just to clear her head. She is an ‘Army Brat’, but an unlikely one. Reading a book by lantern light in a tent by the banks of river Indus after a hard day’s trek in the mountains is her idea of bliss. She wants to be an investment banker but admits that writing lets her escape into a world of ‘Strawberry Fields Forever’.
