12 Things EVERY College Girl Should Have In Her Wardrobe!
Getting into the month of July always makes us nostalgic about back-to-college time as a teen. Days before college re-opened were usually spent re-arranging our wardrobe creating looks to last with zero repeats that would see us through the first few weeks at least. Amongst it all was always the dilemma of finding the perfect first day of school outfit. Lucky for you, having been through it all, we know a thing or two about what any budding college student is seeking sartorially and we’re here to help!
Whether it’s your first year at making a college debut or a much-awaited return, we’ve rounded up the trendiest of picks within the pocket-friendly budget, starting off with a swanky first-day outfit that needs to make a perfect impression yet make you feel like an ‘it-girl’ in your own right. For a day of firsts, leave your darling pieces of denim aside as you’re sure to head back to them soon enough — turn to gingham as it’s one of the most cheerful trends that’s been doing the fashion rounds lately and offers some fresh picks in the form of dresses and cute separates. So long as you offset the separates with a solid hue, you’re good to go! Just don’t forget to add a structured backpack and slip on shoes before you head.
As adults, we don’t have a fresh academic start every year. But an impending change of books is as good an excuse as any to refresh your closet with some practical buys, whether you’re heading to class or bunking. If you’re overdue for some new, not-so-worn-out basics to last you through the year, feel free to head out and indulge yourself in a comfortable yet shapely pair of denims or two — never underestimate the power of a good foundation jean that can easily work under the most basic white tee and even a strappy satin cami for a night of fun.
To make dressing up easy on mornings when your eyes just won’t open, switch up your basic jeans or skirts with transitional tops that are trendy yet comfy, i.e. the cold shoulder — perfect for when you want to show just the slightest amount of skin yet feel great.
Accessories can wreak havoc on the laziest of girls, which is why we are besotted with easier ways to make your look more intriguing. Play nerdy in the most fashionable way with a pair of stylish frames whether you need the prescription or not! They come in an array of fashion-forward styles and make your effortful winged eyeliner appear amplified.
As for your feet, it’s time you swapped those all-white kicks in favour of some slick pastel pairs instead. As for bags, while backpacks are essential, we understand that they don’t necessarily match up with every outfit, which is why shopper totes are a good alternative — they’re large enough to fit your entire collegiate life in. So, browse through our back-to-school essentials below if you want to embrace your upcoming academic year in many styles.
