Life in college is all about making it to the 9 a.m lecture on time, still looking presentable, with coffee in your veins keeping you up and alive through the day. There isnâ€™tÂ much time to get into yourÂ fashionista mode and create an outfit from your closet because your favorite clothes are in the laundry and half the clothes in your wardrobe arenâ€™t wearable or you just dislike them for no reason.Â Also, college is that time of your life where it is necessaryÂ to make a good impression on anyone and everyone you meet, you canâ€™t go around looking like you just had four hours of sleep (even though you did) and didnâ€™t even try to dress appropriately. You never knowÂ who youâ€™reÂ going to work with, in the future.Â So if you arenâ€™t looking your best and wonâ€™t be confident about yourself this will affect the way people think about you.
But fret not my friend! here I have a list of college wardrobe essentials thatÂ you can rely on for creating easy and on the go outfits without using much brain power on those Monday mornings.
What to include in your wardrobe?
Now when it comes to â€śthe essentials wardrobe listâ€ť what comes to your mind is the basic white shirt, dark denim, a cute blouse etc. No doubt these items are a must have but, they arenâ€™t special and basic clothing every dayÂ may make you look boring. The ideal college wardrobe must include basics of courseÂ but, with little twists and comfortable yet stylish clothes to get you through the day. The main point being- wear comfortable clothes but do not compromise on fashion.
An item you can wear that you donâ€™t need to pair with anything: a dress!Â Dresses are usually the most feminine clothing items, you will look cute without even trying. They are associated with the â€śgirly looksâ€ť.Â But you can choose according to your style, there are so many. It could be any kind of a dress from floral to a plain black one.
Little Black Dress: It would be a great idea to include a black dress in your wardrobe since you can dress it up or dress it down according to the occasion.
How to style:
- Casual: Add a denim jacket with a scarf and a belt.
- Formal: Keep it simple with some heels and elegant accessories.
Sweatshirt Dress:Â I recommend getting a sweatshirt dress. They are the answer to soft, cozy and comfy dresses. They are nice and warm so you can skip the jacket if you want.
- pair it with a blanket scarf if you need more warmth.
- put on a cap for a quirky look.
- tie a flannel around your waist.
- put on some white sneakers.
Now I believe most of us have a denim jacket but trust me and get a denim shirt. Itâ€™s great when you donâ€™tÂ want to wear a jacket, but want to layer your outfit. There are so manyÂ ways you can style a denim shirt. Letâ€™s see a few of them.
- put it on a basic white shirt and black jeans
- or on any of your favorite tees and a pairÂ of shorts
- you can also tie a knot in the frontÂ with the buttons open.
- tucked in and buttoned up with trousers.
- oversized flannel over shorts.
- tie it around your waist.
- Â any basic shirt with denim and flannel over them
