Campus TrendS – V.I.T

15 Nov

Cliché alert. College days are the best days of our lives! We love it for so many reasons. Right from the classes to the parties. And what makes it special are the people around us. More important than that (and without realising it), what we actually like is the kind of person we are while we are with them.

Today I would be covering campus trends at my alma mater Vellore Institute of Technology (V.I.T).

All the images are courtesy Indrajeet Rajkhowa, a dear friend and an upcoming name in photography. You can treat yourself to some of his works here.

Toshi is wearing the fundamental blue blue jeans and a casual shirt.


She’s chosen and coordinated  basic colors like black and grey.

What has actually upped the fashion quotient in her case is the black belt.  Cinched at the waist, it gives the whole outfit a feminine feel.

Accessories have been kept to the bare minimum with just a watch.

All in all, facile and practical for a wining day at college.

Arpita is a self-confessed shoe-aholic, which is quite evident by the cutesy peep-toes that she’s walking in.  Its neon pink heels and detailing on blue body of the shoes are to-die for.

The blue tote adds an inadvertent dose of colour blocking.

The quirky glasses with red frames sum up the whole conviviality already built-up by the heels and the fuchsia top.

L--R: Rebecca (jeans, old navy; belt, aldo; top, jennifer; bag, gifted) and Varsha (Pants, X'pose; Top, twentyone; watch, tommy hilfiger, bag, footwear, thrifted)

The girls at V.I.T love their tote bags. And why not, it is commodious and practical.Perfect for a hectic day crammed with classes and running around for notes andwhatnot.

Varsha is carrying a black bag with a Marilyn Monroe-esque etching in silver and black sequins. Her top is perfectly matched to her footwear and her jeans to her bag.

Rebecca is carrying a ‘you-simply-cannot- go-wrong-with-this’ bag. The bag and the belt are naturally paired together, in that where the bag ends, the belt picks up. Rebecca has played the muted colours quite beautifully. Even in her footwear. And this dear readers, is how you capitalize on understatement.

L--R: Harshita and Toshi. (On Toshi, top, Llifestyle; afghani, Janpath; neckpiece, Fabindia; bag, thrifted

necklace, fab india; bag, lifestyle; footwear, lifestyle; pants, janpath; top,SN

A printed Afghani contrasting with the ambiance and neckpiece infuse all the elements of ‘ethnicity’ into Toshi’s outfit. The jhola and the roman slippers complete the look.

Amongst the posse of ‘jeans-wearers’, when we stumble upon  somebody, in nice, cool, airy khaki pants, like Harshita, it is such a refreshing sight. Khaki pants are comfortable and go with everything. They look good even when they’re wrinkled! Must-have in everybody’s wardrobe.

The single piece of brass tribal jewellery is the defining aspect in this outfit .

V.I.T has quite a large campus (implying lots and lots of walking around), add to that the hot and (most of the times) humid climate of Vellore, and your choice of footwear is mostly flip-flops.  Flip-flops are cute and fun and they come in all colours (and their permuations and combinations). You can slip into these in a jiffy and walk off into the sunset :P.

Mrigya is wearing green nailpaint with her pink flip-flops, makes for a nice pop of colour. The green-and-red earring are a very subtle reflection of the aforementioned green nailpaint and pink flip-flops.

Is it just me or do the ladies at V.I.T really like to match their footwear to their tops/tunic..

L--R: Ishita (Kurta, karol bagh, Chudidaar, Bangles, Bag, SN; Chappals,Commercial Street, Bangalore), Anuja and Meetu

On Anuja: kurta, biba; patiala, pantaloons; Bag, chappals, thrifted

Kurtis with leggings or patialas are the things to go to on uncertain days when nothing is inspiring. You don’t even need to have any particular body type to wear it, as it suits all kinds of shapes.

Meetu is wearing an interesting dress as a top which she has quite creatively folded and tucked in. Note the neck, which is quite detailed, almost appearing Egyptian.

Right, Heena. Jeans, X'pose; top, NUON; handbag, baggit

So basically, BASICS rule. T-shirts and jeans.


Boys at V.I.T mostly go with the regular denim jeans. But Parth here totally works it in khaki shorts and his converse instead of going down the hackneyed jeans route.


Some of the types of t-shirts spotted

  • Funny-liner
  • brand-loyalty
  • band-loyalty
  • striped
  • checked


    Is it just me or do the boys at V.I.T really love their french beards goatees…

      thankyou very much for your suggestion. However, I would like to maintain that this blog is solely dedicated to fashion, without any intent of attracting ‘galz’ or ‘guyz’. Also, I hope you understand that the ‘galz’ come to this blog not to look at ‘guyz’ but for the fashion quotient.
