New Semester, New Look? This Website Stocks Affordable Fashion For College-Goers


    FTFY – For The Fun Years – is the college wardrobe fix we never had. This e-commerce website stocks summer-friendly tops, shorts, playsuits and bags that will have you looking DU-ready, without breaking the bank.

    Let The Fun Begin!

    School uniforms meant that we were spared the agony of having to pick out an outfit every single day, but fucchas in DU soon realise the struggle of throwing together a fabulous outfit and making it for the 8.40am class on time. Sarojini, and Delhi’s thrift shopping markets, are amazing but there’s a lot riding on luck, your haggling skills and the weather outside {it’s close to 40 degrees and definitely too hot for street shopping}.

    Enter FTFY. This geared-towards-affordability website is great for making seasonal wardrobe purchases, in time for a new semester.

    Shop Till You Drop

    We love the large section of tops – they have everything from ponchos to off-shouldered tops and prints to solid colours. The off-shoulder style is still super popular and there’s lots of options if you’ve been looking to shop this trend on a budget. All the tops retail for less than INR 800 but be prepared to do some serious window-shopping before you find pieces you love – it’s a lot like shopping at Sarojini Nagar actually – a well-trained eye will be able to spot chic looks for less.

    As temperatures in the capital soar, stay away from jeans and, instead, check out FTFY’s selection of colourful skirts and shorts that will keep you cool as a cucumber. The website also a limited selection of accessories, apart from clothing.

    So, We're Saying...

    Since very few pieces on FTFY exceed INR 1,000, we think this website is perfect for redoing your college wardrobe and experimenting with your look.
