It’s officially back to school shopping season and if you are freaking out about the things you’ll need for your fall wardrobe, don’t worry! Today, I’m here to break down the five essentials you need for an of-the-moment college girl wardrobe in 2019. Invest in these, and you can style a million looks while being completely on-trend.
Also, today we’ve teamed up with Missguided, one of our favorite affordable clothing stores, for a $200 back to school shopping spree giveaway to help you fill up your closet! Be sure to scroll down to the bottom of the post to enter. We’ll also have a special discount code for 50% off your order!
First, let’s get into the five pieces you need for a 2019 college wardrobe:
1. A Throw-Over-Anything Statement Jacket
We can’t talk about fall fashion without recommending a jacket or two. You need a lightweight, statement-making jacket for chilly temperatures. Throw yours on over your favorite basics and watch the look go from boring to ‘gram-worthy.
I love a good snake print jacket for Fall 2019 — snake print is still ultra trendy, yet it’s neutral enough to work with any outfit. Alternatives to this include oversized blazers and boxy black moto jackets.
2. A Killer Dress for Parties
You need at least one amazing party dress for college. Just throw it on and you’re night-out ready.
Anything satin is definitely trending right now! If you’re feeling bold, go neon this season, or keep it classic with a little black dress like this one.
3. A Coordinate Set
These are amazing for lounging around the dorm, as a no-brainer outfit for class, or even for a night out. We love co-ord sets because you can wear them together or split up the pieces for versatility. It’s like getting five outfits in one. (Key for anyone on a budget!)
The best part? These are still incredibly trendy for Fall 2019, and we don’t see them going anywhere soon. Stock up now and thank us later.
4. A Trendy Hair Accessory
Whether you want to get your hair out of your face or just spruce up a basic hairstyle in five seconds, cute hair accessories are college girl must haves this season.
I’m a huge fan of scrunchies (which we’re seeing everywhere), but for something a little more unexpected, a jeweled slide clip like this is a super cute option to jazz up any basic outfit.
5. An Oversized Graphic Tee
This is a fashion no brainer and so trendy for the Fall 2019 season! Throw a baggy graphic tee on with bike shorts and chunky sneakers for a street style look, or tie at the waist and wear with mom jeans for a ’90s vibe.
Fun fact: I own this exact Prince tee myself and wear it at least once a week. So good and goes with everything!
