Back on Campus: Your College Closet

  *Sighs*  Brace yourself. It’s back to school season. Time to get back into the swing of things and put your focus on 10. Time to prepare yourself for those long nights of writing papers, cramming for tests, and trying to attend every school activity you can fit into your schedule. But is your closet prepared?

*Sighs* Brace yourself. It’s back to school season. Time to get back into the swing of things and put your focus on 10. Time to prepare yourself for those long nights of writing papers, cramming for tests, and trying to attend every school activity you can fit into your schedule. But is your closet prepared?

Before you start the semester, we need to make sure you’ve done a deep cleanse. An organized dorm room and an organized closet can help make your studying environment more comfortable. (Plus, it’ll make it easier for you to find your go-to outfit for interviews and presentations.)

As a college student, we know that you have to always be prepared for any kind of weather or occasion. Job fairs, interviews, internships, presentations, and the one thing you want to be prepared for the most is the weather. Some of you may be incoming freshman and may not know what to bring to college with you.

Thoroughly evaluate your closet. What type of things do you have? Is anything too small or big? Do you have anything out of style?  

Some people think of college as a fresh new start, so you may not want to bring the same clothes that you wore in high school. You may want to reinvent your wardrobe and give it a more mature look.

After you evaluate your closet, go through each article of clothing. Is it something that can be layered? Can it be worn casually or formally? Is it appropriate for the occasion?

Going to Class
This is where you can wear your everyday clothing. Be comfortable but appropriate as well. Some professors do not allow crop tops and tanks unless weather permitted. You want to make sure that you have some loungewear clothing in your closet for those lazy days, study sessions, and those dreaded 8am classes.

Presentations & Interviews
Having business casual clothing is so crucial in college. Sometimes wearing a skirt or suit is required for an assignment. It’s best to be prepared so make sure you at least have suit, or a business casual blouse and skirt.  

Weather
The main thing your closet needs for the weather are LAYERS! LAYERS, LAYERS, LAYERS!!! I cannot stress it enough. I know from experience that those long walks to class can be excruciating; especially if you are not dressed weather appropriately. Your closet needs to have every type of outerwear. Trench coat, raincoat, leather jacket, denim jacket, puffy jacket, etc. Layering will make it easier for you to add or remove anything if the weather changes throughout the day.


We hope you all are prepared for the upcoming school year, and I hope your closets are prepared as well! These lovely photos were provided by Ranti Onayemi, Fashion Influencer from Denver.
