Cutting down your wardrobe can be a great way to save money and get more wear from each piece. Here are some tips that will help you create a college wardrobe that will never leave you looking for items to wear.
A few good pairs of jeans – You should invest in at least four good pairs of jeans that fit well to create a strong base for your wardrobe. Look at dark washes like black, blue and gray, plus one pair each in a medium and a light wash.
Denim shorts – A pair of light denim shorts are a good investment for warmer months.
Leggings – Leggings are a good wardrobe staple as they can be worn with a long top, cardigan or under a dress/skirt coupled with boots. Go for a standard black pair as they can be paired with almost anything.
Basic tops – Tops in white, black, and gray in different cuts are affordable and can be worn with anything. Look at tank top in, V-neck, long sleeve, and t-shirts styles in each of the colors above.
Professional outfit – Often at university, you will have to have one outfit that is suitable for presentations, to attend conferences and for networking events. A crisp button-down shirt with pants or a knee-length black shift are both versatile options.
Sweatshirts – Sweatshirts are a must as they will let you be super comfortable and warm when you have late night library sessions, or you need to lounge about in your room.
Crop tops – For nights out at a bar or a pub, a crop top is a comfortable, easy option. You can dress up your crop top with a skirt and a pair of heels or sandals.
