With top-tier "fashionistas” and influencers creating a rage on social media sites like Instagram, Snapchat and Facebook, the pressure to live up to the hype has been nothing short of a phenomenon. For all the fashion enthusiasts’ college students; putting your best wardrobe forward every day is nothing less of a struggle.

Here, we bring to you, 6 super-affordable and chic options that will convert your basic wardrobe staples into a trendy one without you having to brainstorm every morning or burn a hole in your pocket.
1) Go Monochrome
The tried and tested Black and White combo never goes out of style. For those days when you just have the "nothing to wear” moments, go for a fitted black jeans with an oversized sweater just like Asveen Kaur, in the picture above. Accessorize with some dainty studs and a pair of converse to finish the look. For that "extra” factor; try experimenting with silhouettes and patterns like ruffles, and knits and pair it with a minimal headgear of your choice.
2) Oversize in Style
This winter, play it smart like Anjani Yadav, by opting for an oversized jumper and some cuffed boots to break the monotony. This will ensure that you do not drown in a pile of woollens and also smartly cover up the tiny bulge from the weekend partying! Accessorize with a scarf/muffler of your choice to complete the look! Pro-Tip- If the chilly winters have made your hair greasy – go for a messy bun or a sleek ponytail!
