When you’re in college, you’re really just starting to develop a wardrobe, a closet full of clothes that will last you not only your 4 years of university, but on into “the real world.”
Here is what I believe to be the definitive guide to what every college girl should have in her wardrobe. No need to buy diamond studs or a trench coat because college girls just don’t dress that way in real life. I am going to tell you about what you actually want to be wearing for your four years of college life.
- Jeans That Fit Well
Jeans (not sweatpants!) are the basics of a college girl’s closet. Find a brand that fits you well, and then render on different basic washes and styles. Rotate these through the week. No one will notice if you wear the same pair more than once in a week.
Just don’t buy all trendy jeans, because you’ll have to buy new jeans next season or risk looking really out of date.

- A Classic Dress
A lot of fashion experts say that you need a “little black dress Black dresses are which and classic but I think if a dress fits you well and don’t have trashy looking even than it doesn’t need to be black.
If you are a college girl who goes to cocktail parties that require LBD’s than you have to buy a little black dress. But if you’re the typical college girl, just get a dress that fits you well in a color that flatters your skin tone.
- 4-6 Basic Tank Tops
Get a few tank tops of varying lengths in different varieties of colors like black, white, grey and navy blue. These can be worn alone in summer or layered under cardigans, jackets and long-sleeved tops in winter. Also, look for tanks that are 100% cotton to avoid the weird clinging that some blend fabrics can cause.

- A Bag That Holds Everything
You want a bag that’s 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.
Also, plus points if you can find a bag that has lots of pockets and zippered compartments to keep you organized.
- 1-2 Dressy Tops
Go for satin, lace, bright colors and cute prints. Wear a dressy top under a fall/spring jacket or by itself with jeans and heels to a party.
- 1 Pair Nice Dress Pants
Look for well-fitting trouser in black or dark grey with a wide leg to wear on job interviews and recruiting sessions. Your dress pants should be long enough to wear with heels, but should not so long that they drag on the ground.
- 1 White Button-Down Shirt
Again, also used for job interviews and/or internships. Look for a button-down with a little stretch and a cut that’s flattering to your body shape. You don’t want one that’s too tight of course, but you also don’t want to look like a box.

- 1 or More Pairs of Sexy Heels
For wearing to parties with your super-flattering jeans, get at least one pair of sexy high heels. These can be as outrageous or simple as you want – express your style, these are your party shoes!
- 1-3 Summer Skirts
These are not essential for everyone, but for some casual or stylish look, one can have 2-3 skirts. It can light in color with prints on it.
Of course these are nonessential, but so much fun. Sandals are a great way to add color to your wardrobe without spending lots of money.
