You already know what you need in terms of school supplies and dorm room accessories but don’t forget about the must-haves for your wardrobe! In an October article, Marie Claire’s Natalia Angulo lists her “Style Essentials for the College Girl.” Sundresses and rain boots make the list but here are some of our other favorites:
1) Ballet flats – Perfect for the girl who is constantly on the go! Just because flats are comfortable doesn’t mean they have to be boring either. While it’s important to have a simple black pair, try adding in metallic or animal prints to really switch things up.
2) Great jeans – Jeans are probably the most versatile article of clothing a person can own. Natalia mentions that perfectly-fitted jeans are a necessary piece for any college student balancing school with a social life…and we agree! Find a pair that fits well and you’re as good as gold.
3) Cardigans – Perhaps my favorite wardrobe ingredient of all time, cardigans come in hundreds of styles, lengths, patterns, and fabrics. Pair a long one with leggings, a light one over a sundress, or pack a warm one on a chilly day…the possibilities are endless.
4) Accessories – Think of accessories as sprinkles on an ice cream sundae. They can be small, but they sure make the outfit a lot more fun to look at! The right necklace, ring, or scarf can take a plain ensemble to a whole new level. This is also a great – and inexpensive – way to take your outfit from daytime to nighttime.
