Fashion on a Budget

As college students we have all woken up in the morning and asked ourselves the dreaded question “what will I wear to college today?”. Although this probably shouldn’t be our biggest priority when it comes to college it is always on our mind. We can’t afford to be changing our wardrobes around every season as most students are on a college budget and don’t want to be wasting money on the “newest trends” which probably end up changing every week anyway.

Top Tip:

Invest in wardrobe essentials and timeless pieces that can be styled in multiple ways. A white t-shirt and good pair of jeans are a staple piece that can be worn during any season and will go with nearly everything else that is in your wardrobe. Wardrobe basics are one of the best investments you can make because you can dress them up or down no matter the occasion.

Wardrobe Basics:

  • The Classic white t-shirt:

It can be thrown on with a pair of jeans, a skirt or under a slip dress and you’re ready for the day in five minutes.

  • Skinny Denim Jeans

Jeans are one of the most versatile pieces of clothing that someone can have in their wardrove. Once you find the perfect pair of jeans, they will last you a lifetime and can be paired with other staples in your wardrobe.

  • White Trainers

A pair of plain white trainers has become a feature in many of our wardrobes. They go with literally everything. Nearly everyone you pass on a college campus or just walking around town will have a pair of white trainers on. Even going out to clubs and bars, students have switched their uncomfortable heels for white trainers.

  • Black Leggings

A pair of black leggings will never get old, they can be layered with jumpers and boots for the colder months or a t-shirt and white trainer for when the weather is warmer. Leggings are the perfect piece for college when you just want to be comfortable, especially when you have 9am lectures!

  • A Leather Jacket

You will not regret investing in a leather jacket, it is a timeless piece that you will wear for years. It can be thrown on over anything it goes with dresses, jeans, leggings and so much more.
