StyleCracker Borough Pune Presents: The Essential Style Kit for every Pune college student!

Text: Anu Verma

When you are living as a student in Pune, you know your life is more than just finishing your assignments on time. Weekly get-togethers, hangouts, gigs or even evening walks, demand a certain sense of style. While it is important to develop some personal style, we need to stick to our budget as well. Best way to deal with this constraint is to invest in clothes and accessories that are versatile and convenient to store. Here’s a customised list of clothing and accessories, curated by the StyleCracker team for a trendy style kit!


Multi-coloured, solid or colour blocked, match as per your wardrobe or keep few neutrals handy. They are more of an essential, as they make your auto and bike rides, dust free and keep all those harmful chemicals at bay. If you are a hack girl, a scarf can be used as a cover up, retro hairband or even as a dress!

Mostly recommended in neutral colours like black, brown and beige. They can amp up a regular dress, skirt, jacket etc and will surely help you in pulling those low rise jeans up.
