It is extremely important to know the wardrobe essentials if you are a college girl. Clothing is a form of self-expression -these are hints about who you are in what you wear. So dress how you want to be addressed. And dress up not for others but for yourself. A good wardrobe collection is like an icing to the cake of your happy lifestyle.

Sometimes we wonder why dressing up is so important, the answer to the question is very simple, your dressing sense defines you, it gives a positive impression. The way you are dressed up and have groomed yourself will change the other person’s opinion and somewhere in their subconscious mind, they’ll be attracted towards you. As a result, you conveniently top their priority list. Besides getting attention, you feel confident when you are dressed up in your favorite dress and your sidewalk becomes a catwalk.

A Dreamlike Closet

I am sure you too would have dreamt of a closet full of fashionable stuff and the best of the pieces. My perception of a dream closet is a closet full of twirly skirts, button up blazers, ribbed jeans, cardigans, palazzo pants, flats, boots, shoes, snickers, high heels and many more. I am sure you all must have dreamt of a house with a room specifically allotted to your closet, having wild dreams of the celebs closet and dreaming of being rich with the sole purpose to own a full-fledged closet[hahahahah]. But dreams aren’t real these aspiration doesn’t fit our small pockets especially when going to college is already an expensive task. 

Impact of Dressing up

Dresses are often regarded as a way to express yourself. The way you dress up exhibits your personality and acts as a catalyst to let people know your nature. Who on Earth hate getting compliments? Getting a positive comment makes your day. You feel awesome and joyful for the whole day. So why not make every day a happy day by just putting in some efforts to get dressed up well? Trying out new outfits or matching your bottoms with a new or an old top boosts up your creativity.  Therefore, it is extremely important to maintain your own checklist of wardrobe essentials, which is easy to carry and simple to follow. It is not important that you follow ours, you can take ideas from different fashion blogs and create your own simple and easy to follow wardrobe checklist to follow in 2019.

6. Palazzos with Flair

Summers are the best time to dress as you have plenty of options but tight jeans in summers is a sort of challenge so a palazzo is a really good way to get rid of tight jeans since they are comfy and stylish too. You can go for western palazzo pants and pair with plain t-shirts they to give a classy look or you can give it an Indian look with some Indian jewellery. Such wardrobe essentials add to your style quotient.

7. Floral Dresses

In the spring season, floral prints are best go-to college outfits. It is advisable to go for bright colors say white, yellow or pink. The floral prints are soothing to the eyes and give a calmer look. Such wardrobe essentials are styled with some funky accessories. You may also go for some statement earings or hoops and you will be ready to hit the look.


Shrugs are in trend nowadays, you can wear a shrug with jeans, dress or even shorts. Girls with short height should prefer shorts with a shrug as it defines your legs and gives an illusion of being tall or you can go for vertical strips on the shrug.  Such wardrobe essentials help you define your shape and personality where a simple hack can make you look elite.

9. Syncing Footwears

A pair of heels is must, how can you live high life if you don’t wear high heels? High heels could be stilettoes or block heels they can make any outfit party-ready be it freshers, fest, hangouts or farewell. For a normal day at college, you must have a good comfortable pair of shoes. Formal shoes for your interview and a good pair of Indian flats for your Kurtis is a must. Once you have these your wardrobe essentials automatically get 90% in place.

10. Top up with Accessorie

Wardrobe essentials are incomplete without accessories. Not just any accessory but the right accessory. To make your look a style statement, the right choice of accessories is a must. Accessory with any simple casual and formal wear gives you a different look. For handbag like Tote Bags, Backpack, Bucket Bag, and Sling Bag are usually a great option if space is concerned or else space is not concerned than Clutch Bag, Shoulder Bag and Envelop Bag can be a good option. A hand watch is trendy and available in different colors and style. Chokers are in trend, girls with long neck should go for chokers while girls with short neck can go for long and delicate neckpiece. Earings is what complete your look to match your earrings to your look.
