5 College Wardrobe Essentials

Now that it has finally cooled down outside and I can wear something more than an oversized tee and Nike shorts outside without sweating to death, I've come up with 5 key essentials that are wardrobe musts for college girls. I swear all 5 of these very often and highly recommend investing in them if you're in college (or high school too!). 

+ baseball hat
For days when your hair is driving you nuts or you didn't have time to wash it, I always throw on a baseball hat. I wore these a lot in high school but even more so now that I'm in college. It's always so humid here so my hair puffs after being outside for too long - trust me when I say having a few to rotate through is a lifesaver!

neutral flip flops
A ton of both boys and girls wear Rainbows here and at first I was really skeptical to purchase a pair because they didn't seem like something I would wear. After realizing that I didn't want to be wearing my Jack Roger sandals all the time, I caved in and have literally worn them daily ever since. Whether you're walking around on your floor or running to the dining hall for a quick bite, having a comfortable and versatile flip flop is really handy. I wear these to my heavy class days all the time and they're actually super supportive!

+ cozy pullover 
60 degree weather means I can fiiiinally take out my cozy sweatshirts and pullovers! I've honestly never been happier that it's colder outside - I need to stock up on another pullover or two because I already know I'll be living in them for the next several weeks. I adore my Southern Proper one - highly recommend if you want something more unique than the classic Patagonia snap t version.

+ blazer
If you're going into business or are planning to join any clubs that involve networking, having a blazer in your closet is a MUST. Investing in as much business casual/ professional is very helpful because you don't realize how often you'll need it until you get to college. I love my J.Crew one but would say any good quality blazer would work.

+ leggings
This is quite obvious but it didn't hit me how much I would be wearing leggings until this week. I lived in my Nike Shorts for both going to class and working out, so now that it's cold outside, leggings are my go-to. I have yet to pull the trigger and buy a pair from Lululemon, but I think that will have to happen in the near future! I prefer dark gray ones so I can wear them with my navy bean boots, but having a few pairs on hand would be a great idea.

What are your college wardrobe essentials?

  1. These are great picks and so true. The only one I took way too long to invest in one was a good blazer, and I totally regretted waiting so long!
