Each new college year promises a lot of fun and very often the social function to get this started is the fresher’s party. This night is your first glimpse into what to expect from the year ahead. While it may be all light-hearted and amicable at first, but when you do vibe and click that first selfie with a new friend—because c’mon, you know you will—it’s the start of a whole new adventure ahead.

So while you’re at it, clicking selfies and having all the fun you can, we’re here to make sure you’re looking your best in those selfies. Here’s listing down different outfit ideas for your first ever college fresher’s party to make an impression that lasts.

Goes without saying, an LBD is the first to come to mind. While chances are this one's your go-to for just about any party, you can always play with different fabrics, textures and accessories to make it stand out each time.

Wear it with: Sneakers if you’d like to dance the night away or your favourite high heels to make a statement on your first night out with your batchmates.

Count on a cardigan

This one's a good hack to make your club wear wearable to college. Just throw on a cardigan! Not only will it add some life to your monotone outfit but it'll also help tone down your SQ (sexy quotient).

Wear it with: That favourite lace dress of yours that you just can’t have enough of or a maxi skirt and top combo if you’d like to keep warm.

Some shoulder play

Off shoulders and cold shoulders have been quite the rage this season. This only makes them the trendiest pieces to wear to your fresher’s party. Works really well for those of you with sharp collarbones…else there's always contouring!

Wear it with: Jeans would be an ideal option, however pairing it with a skirt and mid-rise heels make you look hella feminine while remaining functional too.

Plaid anything FTW!
 

Plaid anything FTW!

We'd written about plaid shirts being an absolute wardrobe essential, thanks to its versatile nature that makes it easy to style it for day and night. So this fresher’s party, take it out for a spin. Don't worry, you will stand out.

Wear it with: Anything. But it’s how you accessorise it that counts. So throw on some minimal metallic jewellery to balance out the edginess of the plaid.

Denim and sneakers

You love this combo so much, it's difficult to part with it. Well, you don't have to anymore, for it's perfectly okay to wear it to a fresher’s party. Not everyone has to dress like the ‘it’ girl, it's okay to lay back (and still look chic!).

Wear it with: A top that fits well, helps if it’s shimmery or embellished. If not, have some statement arm candy to jazz up your outfit.

The other denim

Denim doesn't necessarily have to mean jeans, a jacket does it too. In fact, this one adds the right amount of edge to a rather flirty dress/skirt and tones it down. Besides, having an extra layer on never hurt anyone.

Wear it with: A dress, top, shirt or blouse. A denim jacket works with anything. It gets better though, for you can add all sorts of patches and lapel pins to it.

Of shirts and skirts

Lastly, your formal button downs too can be taken from day to night. Just swap your bottoms for something more playful like a skirt, or pair the shirt with a dress underneath it. At the end of the day, it's all about how well you style it (and own it)!

Wear it with: A pair of strappy stilettos or dressy flats, whichever makes you feel comfortable, considering you will be on your feet most of the night.
