Heavy rain couldn’t stop fuchhas from making their college debut in style. Dressed in off-shoulder tops, flared pants, enviable sneakers and the best of accessories — the freshers scored high on comfort and style. Some were also seen sporting unique Indo-Western combinations, while others took the fashion game a notch higher and sported neon hair colour shades to stand out.

Bhavna Lohia from Kamala Nehru College says, “I had planned to wear heels but due to rain, I chose colourful sneakers that match with my crop top. These are super comfy and make me look chic.”

Avnika Malhotra from Miranda House College, who sported sleek flats with her dress says, “I really wanted to wear this dress because I had spent so much on it. But in the morning it started raining and I had to switch my matching heels with these chappals.”

Flaunting shades of neon on her hair, Mishita Mittal from Kamala Nehru College says, “I wanted to look different without going over the top. So, I chose normal clothes and went for neon blue strands in my hair.”

It wasn’t just the fuchchas who raised the style quotient on day one, seniors too joined in the fun. “College’s day one is all about looking different and experimenting. So, I decided to go with a blue mascara. Why should fucchas have all the fun?” says Inayat Shanghalya, final year student of Gargi College.
