Cool Cats

Whether one is sporting casual wear or formal, a lot of thought goes in getting the ‘right look’. While comfort is a priority for students, style is equally important. Four brand-conscious students tell Metrolife what’s hot and what’s not on campus.

A  first-year BCom student, Sloka Sanjeevi wore a black with yellow polka dotted top with black jeans from Wrangler. Completing the look were black shoes from Bata.

''I love the black-and-black combination. Getting the right look is important to me irrespective of the time it takes. I decide what to wear to college the night before. We are being watched and no one wants to be caught on the wrong foot. I keep myself updated about what’s in vogue and dress accordingly.''

An MBA student from ISME, Suraj Pachlangiyawore a white shirt from Marks & Spencers. His black tie and trousers were from Raymonds while his black blazer was from Pantaloons. Shoes from Metro completed his formal look.

''It’s important to be able to carry off what you wear. For me, comfort is as important as style. If it’s an important occasion, I stick to the suit. I always go for branded clothes as they give value for money and last long. I must admit that I am yet to try out street shopping.” 

A PGDM student from ISBR, Prateek Reddy wore a red and blue checked shirt with blue shaded jeans and brown shoes from Lee Cooper.

''I dress to impress. I usually go with casuals and stick to blue and black. That’s what I think suits me best. I allocate Rs 3,500 per month for clothes. Whatever I wear, I ensure that I am comfortable. I equate style with comfort. I also look for clothes that don’t require a lot of maintenance.''

An MBA student from ISBR, Ranjitha Menon wore a black kurta with pink and purple embroidery which went well with her pink leggings from Soch.

''I prefer an ethnic look as I feel it defines me. I dress to impress myself and not anyone else around. I generally mix and match clothes. I like putting on accessories because they accentuate the entire look. I usually go in for something simple and small. Simple yet elegant is my style statement.''
