My college is about to end in a few more weeks, rather days (There is no point in counting the exam days, right? :D). Although throughout the four years, I never enjoyed my college life as much as I wish I’d had but I am surely going to miss it, no matter how much I wish it was more fun or I was more fun. But this post ain’t just about all the emotional stuff related to oh-college-is-ending-m-gonna-miss-it. Rather, its about one thing that I did not follow during my college life and I wish I did. That thing is experimenting with my wardrobe (Did you expect something more serious?, I guess not after reading the title of this post :P).
Throughout my college life, I was more of a jeans, t-shirt, shorts, sometimes dressier tops, kurtas and salwars (Indian Pants) kind of girl. No maxi dresses, no skirts (considering that there is so much variety, it is pretty shameful) etc. I think I never thought about sporting skirts because I have been a jeans/ trousers person throughout my life. Infact, I really feel more comfortable in my pyjamas than skirts/maxis while sleeping. The other reason might be parents protective about their daughters travelling by public transport in Delhi. Anyway, no one in my college wears maxi dresses to college but my point is that I could have experimented so much more with what I wore (that rhymes :P). I mean I could have tried funkier tops with something special to them or different styles of dhoti pants or a quirky top or pants, basically anything which added a special element to the routine clothes. The funny part is that its not that I did not do all this because I was afraid to experiment, in fact some of my friends criticized my wearing of huge earrings with casual clothes but I was very confident and certain that it looks pretty cool, but the reason I did not experiment was because the idea of experimenting with my wardrobe did not cross my mind (It is only a realization that I had in the past few months, thanks to the blogging world). However, I am proud of myself for at least experimenting with various types of earrings (<3) and heavily kohl-ed eyes. I am also proud that I shopped from men’s section too to have outfits that I loved, like loose shirts with skinny jeans (the men’s section idea was of a friend’s by the way). I only wish I had done better considering that I am not afraid to do it and the fact that I am in my early twenties which is the best time for experimenting with your wardrobe. However, deep inside my heart, I do know that I experimented so much more than people around me of the same age group. I have done myself proud! 😀
So, all you people out there, experiment as much as you can with your dressing style, clothes, accessories etc. while you are in your undergrad school. Just remember to draw a line where needed in terms of decency. Be confident about what you wear and be creative about it because when you grow older, you will remember how much fun you had playing with your wardrobe. (Although you can do that at any age really. :))
Go hunt your wardrobe! 😀
