Whether youre starting your first or final year of college, always remember: less is more when youre living in a dorm or apartment!
You should have enough clean clothes, and underwear, for at least a week in each season. Otherwise, youll end up doing laundry multiple times a week, something you wont have time or the willpower for.
Without further ado, here is what I believe to be the definitive guide to what every college girl should have in her wardrobe, the staples youre actually going to want to be wearing for your four years of college life.
Get a few basic tees or tank tops of varying lengths (cropped tees count, too) in different basic colors like black, white, grey, and navy blue. Also, throw in at least one fun tee in your favorite color for variety!
These can be worn alone in summer or layered under cardigans, jackets, and long-sleeved tops in winter.
These would be your trendy pieces that rotate from year to year; they can include crop tops, cute cami tanks, and button-downs!
Dont bring too many from home since theyll clutter up your closet, and you can easily exchange items between your dorm and house on trips home.
Oversized, cozy sweaters are my favorite thing to wear during the winter, and no one can convince me otherwise. And cropped cardigans give all those 2000s vibes we love so much.
Make sure the vast majority of your sweaters are not dry clean only options; I scored a nice sweater from J.Crews clearance section for $20, only to discover I almost never wore it in college because I was afraid of getting it dirty!
