College Wardrobe Staples

The start of the new school year always feels like a great time for a fresh start.  Even though I have been out of school for almost two years now, I still feel like the end of August and beginning of the new school year is a great time for a new beginning.  Things slow down during the summer months.  Many organizations take time off during the summer while everyone is on vacation, so the summer is still a time to relax and unwind even for adults (without kids in school).

The new school year also means the end of summer clothing in all the stores and the start of all the cooler weather clothing.  Whether or not the weather will actually follow suit (which it likely will not in the South), the stores are moving on to long sleeves, jackets and boots.  And even though it may not feel like it outside, you better stock up now, because many of these items will go fast and end up backordered by the time you actually want to wear them!

To help you prep your wardrobe for the new season (and new school year) here are six items I recommend all college students have in their wardrobe.

1.  Embellished Sweater | A fun embellished sweater makes for a great wardrobe staple.  This sweater is lightweight and casual, but the embellished collar makes makes this sweater dressy enough to go from the library to your internship.  Just swap your jeans and sandals for a classic pair of black pants and closed-toed heels and you're good to go! 

2.  Jean Jacket | Jean jackets rarely go out of style.  They are the eternal classic casual jacket! Throw it over a sundress for Sunday church or over chinos and a tank for class.  You can never go wrong with a classic jean jacket.

3.  Flared Skirt | Every college girl needs a few versatile skirts that can take you from summer to fall.  Solid skirts can easily mix and match with just about anything in your closet.  I highly recommend investing in a few lightweight skirts that can be paired with tights on cooler days.

4.  Button Down | Everyone needs a few button down shirts in their wardrobe.

5.  Ballet Flats | A year-round classic, ballet flats are the perfect accessory for every college girls wardrobe.  Pair them with jeans, leggings, shorts or dresses for the perfect way to transition from summer to fall.  These versatile shoes can take you from class to just about anywhere you need to go as a college freshman.  Whether you're running to a club meeting or grabbing lunch in the campus cafeteria, you will never go wrong with classic ballet flats.

6.  Classic Sandals | Every college students needs a pair of Jack Roger sandals.  They are the perfect sandal and go with just abut everything you could ever imagine.  I never could've imagined how much use I would get out of mine.
