Clothing Essentials for Your College Wardrobe
When you pack for college, you might face a challenge of choosing proper clothing to take with you. However, as it usually turns out, you will not need as much as you think. Choose only the items that you will absolutely need, like those listed below.
You will probably wear them almost every day. Take about four pairs, but choose only those that fit you well. Leave at home any pair that you do not wear anymore.
This is the second item that you will wear very frequently. They go with almost anything, as long as you wear something long enough over them. Choose basic leggings, as well as those with prints to create awesome outfits.
3. Basic Tops
Most likely, you will have a limited storage and closet space. In this case, it is a good idea to take several tops with you. Opt for tank tops, V-necks, long-sleeves, and t-shirts of different, mostly neutral, colors.
4. Professional Outfit
No matter what your major is, you have to be able to look professional, especially when you are going to a job or internship interview. You should also dress up for various presentations, conferences, and networking events. So, bring with you a crisp white blouse, a blazer, and nice pants.
5. Sweatshirts, Cardigans, & Sweaters
You will need those either to feel comfortable in your room, or in a library late at night, or at a dorm party. Paired with leggings or jeans, they will look very nice. Bring one of each to interchange them and look differently on diverse occasions.
Having several scarves in your wardrobe will help you enrich your style. This accessory can bring new life to your t-shirt and sweat combo. On chiller days, it will also give you extra warmth without any bulk.
Bring your favorite black skirt, as well as a high-waisted skirt and a maxi. Combine them with different tops to create diverse styles. You can wear them to school as well as to the party.
8. Jacket for Going Out
Besides jackets for the winter, spring, and fall, you will also need a cheaper jacket, about which you do not care so much. It should be such a jacket that you will not be afraid to lose or leave somewhere. Go with a neutral color, or the one you often wear to combine it with different outfits.
9. Flannel & Chambray Shirts
A truly essential wardrobe item. You will need one when the weather is not too cold or hot. Combine them with different pieces to create various styles.
10. Tights. Another Must-Have Item
You can pair tights with a skirt or a dress, cardigan and boots to wear in the fall or spring. When it is cold, wear them under your jeans to keep yourself warm.
