Heading to colleges? Clothing essentials for freshers (see pics)

New Delhi: If you're too confused about what to wear on the first day of college, just clear your puzzled mind by choosing to wear something simple yet stylish in a comfortable fabric like cotton.

Cotton Council International (CCI) has come up with five college fashion tips to help youngsters get their style right:

* Classic blue jeans never grow old and are a must have in your wardrobe. The easiest way to wear them is to pair them up with your cotton kurtis, t-shirts or tank tops.

Pick floral cotton knee-length kurtis to go with a dark blue or black denim. For the first few days of enjoying the summer trips with classmates, pair your worn-out denim or knee length cotton shorts with pop coloured tank tops or plain white t-shirt.

* To help beat the summer heat, opt for flowy skirts. Whether they are above the knee or below, skirts are in trend this season as they are easy to handle.

Body-hugging tops tucked inside the skirt is a comfortable yet stylish way to attend the first day at college.

* After Deepika Padukone sported them in "Cocktail", palazzo pants are in vogue. These loosely-fit pants can be worn in any shade and print. However, be careful when mix-matching and wearing busy prints as you don't want to commit a fashion faux pas on day one.
