5 Fashion Tips for College Girls

The start of fall semester is just a few short weeks away! I’m in my third year of graduate school, which means I have been in college for a large portion of my adult life. As a perpetual college student, I have learned so many things and I want to pass on this information to those of you who are currently in college or who are starting college this semester. I have a number of college tips posts lined up with different topics, but today’s post is all about fashion tips for college girls. Keep reading for my tips!


5 Fashion Tips for College Girls:

1. Check the weather

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve decided to wear a skirt or dress on a day that it was really windy and ended up flashing several people on campus. Totally embarrassing! Or how many times I got caught in a rainstorm with no umbrella. Learn from my mistakes. Check the weather the night before or the day of and don’t forget to look at the wind for the day too!

2. Don’t wear brand new shoes

You just bought a super cute pair of shoes from Target and can’t wait to wear them. Trust me, you should wait. Wear them on the weekend to break them in. I have literally walked across campus with bleeding heels before because I wore brand new shoes that weren’t worn it. It wasn’t pretty and it took two weeks for my feet to recover.

Pro Tip: Keep bandaids in your purse just in case you ever get a blister!

3. Keep a cardigan in your backpack

Lecture halls and the student union are almost always freezing cold. It can be really hard to concentrate in class when you’re thinking about how cold you are. By keeping a cardigan or thin jacket in your backpack you always have an option to add layers if you get too cold!

Cardigans I Love:

4. Plan your outfit the night before

You hit snooze one (or five) too many times and have nothing to wear. Now what? You can save time in the morning (and sleep longer) if you plan your outfit the night before. Trust me, you don’t want to be that girl wearing her pajamas to class. Or maybe you do – more power to you!

Pro Tip: If you didn’t plan the night before, you can’t go wrong with a chic t-shirt and jeans.

T-Shirts I Love:

5. Keep an old dryer sheet in your bag

I know what you’re thinking: What!?! Okay, hear me out. You forgot about step 4 and sleep in, put on some deodorant, throw on a t-shirt, and run out the door. Then you look down and see deodorant marks all over your shirt. Now what? Well, if you have a used dryer sheet (it has to be used, a new one won’t work) you can rub it on the deodorant marks and they magically disappear, plus you smell like fresh laundry!

Pro Tip: Along with a used dryer sheet I also make sure to keep an extra hair tie, mints, Advil, lipstick, bandaids, and a stain remover in my bag.

    Setting out your outfit the night before isn’t just a good tip for college students, it’s a good tip for literally everyone. It makes your mornings so much easier whether you’re going to school, work, or whatever.
