College Checklist

July 26, 2016

Hey guys! Today, I'm here to give you a list of things you will ACTUALLY need and use your first year of college. A lot of posts that  I've read for a list of college essentials last year when I was going into my first year were very in depth and contained  a ton of stuff. I also (being the person I am) over packed WAY too much. So today I'm sharing with you a list of things that you actually need and the stuff you don't, so you avoid over packing like I did.

For me, moving away for college was  a MAJOR spring cleaning for all of my old clothes. Except I didn't realize it until after I moved back for break. I brought almost everything I owned to school, when in reality I wore less than half of it the entire time I was away.

Summer clothes:
  • A few pairs of shorts
  • A few tank tops/ summer blouses
  • 3 dresses/rompers
  • Two bathing suits
  • Flip flops
  • Sandals
  • One pair of wedges 

Fall clothes:
  • 3 pairs of jeans (skinny, boyfriend, flare)
  • Your favorite blouses
  • 1-2 cardigans
  • 1-2 flannels
  • 2 vests
  • 2 fall jackets
  • 2-3 pairs of leggings
  • Flats
  • Booties
  • Sneakers
  • Scarves/Hats
  • 1 or 2 hoodies

Winter clothes:
  • 1 winter parka
  • 3-4 sweaters
  • 3 long sleeve shirts
  • The same fall blouses you brought from before
  • Winter boots
  • Hats, gloves, scarves

  • 1-2 fancy/night out dresses
  • 1 pair of heels
  • Presentation outfit (pantsuit, trousers, pencil skirt/blazer)
  • PJ's
  • 1 pair of running sneakers
  • Umbrella + rain boots

And seriously that's it for clothes. I am NOT kidding you- I am a major in FASHION and I sincerely did not need more than half of the clothes I brought. I think the major key is about having a lot of blouses that you can mix and match with and corresponding pants.
