10 Wardrobe Must-haves For Every University Lady

When you are in school, you're really just starting to develop a wardrobe that will last you not only for 4/6 years of university, but on into "the real world". You want to keep up with trends, but at the same time, you want clothes that won’t be unwearable for the next season...

So i'll give you some must-have wardrobe items for college ladies #BeInspired...

▶ Jeans

These are the basics of any college girl's closet. Find styles and brand that fits you well. One of these pairs can be a trendy style- like ripped jeans or boyfriend jeans. Just don't buy all trendy denim, because you'll have to buy new jeans next season or risk looking really out of date.

▶ A Classic Dress

Putting on a simple dress was my go-to to class then because it's an entire outfit in one easy piece. Many fashion experts say that you need a "little black dress", and of course I agree that black dresses are chic and classic. However, I think if a dress fits you well and flatters your skin tone, then it doesn't need to be black.

▶ Basic Tees or Tanks

Get a few basic tees or tank tops of varying lengths in different basic colors like black, white, grey and navy blue. These can be worn alone or layered under blazers, cardigans, and jackets. Also, look for pieces that are 100% cotton to avoid the weird clinging that some weird fabrics can cause.

▶ Classic White Button-down Shirt

This is the most versatile item in everyone's wardrobe and a must-have for students cos there is very little that won’t go with it. Since finding the right one can be a bit of a process, go with a popover if your chest is on a larger side, or a style with more detailing on the front to make a small chest look bigger.

▶ Knee-length skirt

Every college lady should have a knee-length skirt that fits perfectly and gives you a slim appearance. It is especially important for ladies who don't wear trousers. Your knee-length skirt can be a pencil skirt, A-line skirt, flared, pleated, etc, but choose the style that fits your figure perfectly.

▶ Dressy Tops

This is another essential item you need to own as a student. Look for fun fabrics, bright colors, and/or cute prints. Wear a dressy top under a jacket or by itself with jeans/pants/skirt and flats to class or heels to a party.

▶ Nice Dress Pants

Get a well-fitting trouser in black or dark grey with a wide or straight legs for seminars or presentations. Your dress pants should be long but not so long that they drag on the ground.

▶ Well-Cut Jacket

This can be as casual or as formal as you like. It just needs to match most of your clothes and has to fit well! A military jacket or denim jacket is a great option here. Remember the fitting is everything with jackets so spend as long as it takes shopping around for the right jacket. Don't settle for something that doesn't fit just right.

▶ Casual Flat Shoes

Flat shoes are a must for college. When i say flat shoes, I mean athletic sneakers, slip-on, ballet flats, sandals, loafers, boat-shoes, etc...Get one pair in a basic color like black or brown, and one pair in a bright color like red or cobalt.

▶ Blazer in a Neutral Color

This should be in a neutral color like black, grey or navy for maximum versatility. A good blazer can be styled a million different ways and can be worn to class, seminars or defence.

▶ Great Bras & Panties

These will take you SO far. Underwear is the foundation of your look. If you don't have a bra that fits well, the rest of your outfit is not going to look right. Same goes for panties. Shop for good well-fitting bras and panties that don't pinch, bulge or show under your clothes. At least one nude bra in a skin-tone-matching shade is a must for wearing under white tees.

▶ Black Pumps

These are essential for seminars and professional occasions. Style them on your dress pants and shirts and make sure to get good-quality shoes because if you take care of them, they will last you forever!

▶ A Bag That Holds Everything

It should be a bag that has good quality (canvas, leather, or strong fake-leather are good bets), goes with most of your wardrobe, and still looks chic. The right bag can also go from day to night, so look for classic details like metal accents and one that has zippered compartments to keep you organized!
