Having a style of your own is a way to put your personality forward. It’s something that makes you feel good about yourself, boosts your confidence, and keeps you up and about.

Everyone needs styling tips, but one of the most important times to have some good tips up your sleeve is when you go to college. College girls love to give a new look to themselves when they enter this new phase of life. Being stylish and trendy, wearing the perfect dress according to the season, and pairing up the best suitable accessories with it, is the top of their priorities every day. There are just so many things that must be a staple in every college girl’s wardrobe. And there are even more ways to dress them up differently so that you get to enjoy a unique look every day. As they say, fashion is like a menu; why stick to the same thing every day when you have so many other options.

Here are some wardrobe staples that you must pack before you set off for the new journey.


  1. Classic tees

Your packing for college just can’t be complete without a few classic tees. Tees don’t just mean a simple black tea is enough, although that can do a magical job, but make sure to throw some variety there. You can add more colors such as grey, white, or navy blue. You can break the stream of boring by throwing in a colorful, funky tee to give your collection a pop. Cropped tees will also make a good addition. You can wear them under cardigans or throw a jacket or coat over it in the winters. They are excellent breezy wear that keeps minimalism and vogue in a healthy balance.


2. Cute blouses

Other than the basic tees, make sure to pack some cute tops, blouses, or crop tops in your bag as well. These trendy pieces add a bit of oomph to your daily dull attires. You can include button-downs or cami tanks in your bag and pair them up nicely with jeans or shorts. While packing, don’t forget a crisp white top as it is a style elevator and mood booster, two-in-one. Even vogue mentions it as a summer staple, so there’s no way you want to miss out on that one.

They are not just perfect for being in college but going out for lunch or shopping as well. At the same time, make sure not to pack too many of them, or else they’ll just clutter your wardrobe.


3. Sweaters

There’s nothing that can beat the charm of a cozy, oversized sweater when it comes to the winter wardrobe. It’s not just about the warmth but the irresistible attraction that they hold in them. Whether it’s a turtleneck, a cardigan, a pullover, or a V-neck, they are all stylish in their unique ways. Keep them in a variety of colors, style them up smartly with a nice pair of jeans and a tee, and you’re guaranteed to make heads turn. You can create an adorable vintage style with them, and that would elevate your appearance to another level.


4. Jackets

Jackets are the heart of a wardrobe, and there’s nothing better than a leather jacket, pumping up your day with its edginess and coolness. A sexy leather jacket by Lyrevo, for example, would add the perfect smartness and trendiness to your outfit. If you’re amid your college packing and haven’t yet added a jacket to your stack, then you’re really missing out on an abundance of swank. You can throw it over a dress or a tee with a pair of jeans or skirt, and you’re all set to seize the day.


5. Pairs of shorts

A couple of pairs of shorts should always be your way of entering into the college phase. They are flowy, trendy, and cute. It’s actually how you pair them up that they bring out that kind of look on you. Keep bike shorts and jeans shorts in the three main colors and let diversity do the job. The best part about shorts is the comfort they bless you with, while the fitting is a bonus. Once you try them, they sort of change your entire life.


6. Dresses

Casual dresses and skirts are always one of the best inclusions in one’s wardrobe, and there would be hardly anyone who would disagree with it. These outfits are perfect for a casual day as well as for formal meetings. They are breezy, comfortable, and super stylish. Wear a bold lip color, and you’re ready to shine or pair it up with heels, and you’re definite to make a bold statement. Dresses look good no matter how you wear them, and that’s just an established fact.


7. Quality jeans

Jeans and that also good quality jeans are a wardrobe essential that every college girl should have. The variety of jeans, the diversity in colors, and the myriad of ways in which you can style them are a stunner on their own. Whether you like wide-leg jeans, skinny jeans, high-waisted, or distressed or all of them, they all do a wonderful job in their capacity. Going for a class, having a casual lunch, or going for a stroll, they are easy-going and modish in the best way possible.


8. Printed scarf

While you’re packing all sorts of things for your amazing college wardrobe, you mustn’t leave behind a nice printed scarf to complement your attire. It is guaranteed to enhance the entire outlook of your dress. And no, you don’t only have to wear it around your neck; you can go out of the conventional by styling it in various ways or just wear it in your hair. For a college girl, it will amp up your look in an instant. A colorful, printed scarf would suit the best with a white tee or any plain tee that gets in good contrast with your scarf.

9. Black tights

Workout leggings or running leggings are the best to be purchased in this case. They are probably one of the most famous pieces of clothing to be worn in college. You can wear them casually, play sports, or work out in them. The fact that they look amazing with everything is a bonus point no one can ignore. Wear them under a simple tee or s dress or a maxi, and they’ll rock all kinds of dresses in the best of ways. If you haven’t packed black tights yet, you might want to unpack your bags right now.

A few cute pieces that complement almost all of your dresses would be perfect. But make sure not to keep anything expensive, especially if you’re prone to losing stuff.
