If you’re a college girl living in India, you know your college fashion is restrictive on budgets and sadly, unlike the west, we don’t get winter holidays here. So, you have no option but to get up and dress up for college in winters (which can be quite a challenge) even though you feel like staying in bed in the mornings. You can possibly not repeat the same clothes all 5 days of the week. So, here are a few winter outfit ideas for y’all to survive the whole of winters within a budget of 3k!
Invest in a good sweatshirt
 

Invest in a good sweatshirt

Sweatshirts are perfect for the college girl on the go as there are literally tons of ways to style them. We recommend picking shades of black, navy blue or grey to keep the versatility of the garment going with no matter what. Style it with leggings, denims or anything else as you please! You can never go wrong with a sweatshirt. We love this one from H&M which retails at 799/-. Cheap and definitely within your budget!

Give importance to layering
 

Give importance to layering

When it comes to winter fashion, layering is the most important. Layering gives you the liberty to wear your everyday clothes and still keep warm when needed. A woolen long cardigan looks stunning with a basic pair of t-shirt and jeans or even a dress paired up with boots. You can also experiment and take your look up a notch by adding a belt over the cardigan! We love this long sweater cardigan from Forever 21 which is for 2889/-

Stock up on fine knit jumpers
 

Stock up on fine knit jumpers

For days when temperature keeps dropping and rising like it’s some game (which is most days in Indian winters), selecting tops can be a little tricky. If the weather is confusing you, opt for fine knit jumpers that are slightly warmer than your regular tops. You can style these with denims, skirts, culottes and trousers. They look great when they’re layered too, so you can style it as per your convenience and weather fluctuations. We love this crossover strapped jumper from H&M which is for 799/- for the not-too-cold and not-too-hot days!

Opt for Ponchos
 

Opt for Ponchos

Too many sweaters, sweatshirts and jumpers can get a tad bit boring, and that’s not what you want to look like at college, do you? Ponchos add a fun, tribal vibe to your dressing while keeping you warm. You can choose from buttoned ponchos for layering, to poncho tops and even poncho dresses. They’re definitely one item of clothing that makes winter fashion fun. We found this poncho on Myntra on sale for 942/-. Not bad, right?

Accessories and shoes
 

Accessories and shoes

Don’t ever forget to keep a beanie handy as it not only makes your outfit look a whole lot cuter, but also protect your ears from freezing. We often find ourselves covering our ears with our hair because we’re feeling cold. At least a beanie will save you that effort. When it comes to shoes, the best winter shoe would be a flat suede ankle boot. But if that’s too much for you, opt for sneakers. Try and avoid wearing open shoes during the winters. You can get these within 1,500/- at local stores!
