There are a lot of things a college girl can look forward to in college. New friends to hang out with, new orgs to be passionate about, and of course, the no uniform policy. While for some, being able to go to school in their everyday clothes is a good thing, for others, that would mean having to shop every week because no one wants to labeled as an outfit repeater—especially in new territory, right? Don't stress yourselves out, Candy Girls because first, it's totally okay to repeat outfits in college! Second, we're listing down the basic wardrobe essentials every college girl needs to help you have a flawlessly fashionable four-year stay in your university!

T-Shirt

T-shirts may be casual, but they're versatile and comfortable, too! So, whether you're heading to class, or cooping up in the library to work on a paper, you can always count on a tee for a simple and no-fuss OOTD.

Slouchy Knit

For the cooler days, swap your trusty tee for a fashionable slouchy knit to keep you warm in style! Its versatile look will allow you to wear it over and over again without anyone noticing, too!

Blazer

Every college girl needs a blazer for reports, defenses, and for future internship interviews as well. Choose one that's crisp and tailored for a sleek and sharp look.

White Button-Down

Wondering what to wear to your defense? You can always count on the white button-down for an OOTD that's professional enough to wear in front of your professor and panelists, and fashionable enough to wear to a block hangout afterwards.

Cami

Camis are fashionable enough to wear on its own, and perfect for layering, too! Wear yours over a fitted tee for a cute and trendy school uniform for the day.

Shirtdress

Shirtdresses may be casual, but they're stylish and feminine, too! Wear a shirtdress for days when you're too lazy to put together an outfit for school, but still want to look fashion forward.

Pencil Skirt

If there is any piece that's both formal and flattering at the same time, that has got to be the pencil skirt. Wear it with a white button-down for defense day and wear it with a crop tee on a regular school day ala the Kardashians.

Jeans

Whether it's a pair of boyfriend jeans, bootcut denim, or a pair of skinnies, choose a pair that's dark washed for a versatile and always flattering jeans. Plus, you don't have to wash your jeans every after use, too! Double yay!

Denim Cut-offs

For a cool, casual OOTD that's comfy and breezy, too, let your favorite OBJs rest for the day and opt for a pair of denim cut-offs instead. Just like your trusty jeans, a pair of denim cut-offs is stylish and versatile as well.

Flats

Unlike in high school, you're going to be doing a lot of walking in college! So, make sure that you own a pair of flats that's easy on the eyes, easy to pair with your clothes, and easy to walk around in, too!

Pumps

Swap your go-to flats for a pair of serious pumps during a class presentation to show your professor that you mean serious business.

Sneakers

Whether it's for style, for comfort, or both, you can always rely on a pair of sneaks to give your school uniform for the day a major style boost.

The Rebecca Bloomwood of Manila. I spend half of my time obsessing about the latest fashion craze, and the other half overthinking and over-analyzing just about anything under the sun. When I’m not busy as a bee playing with fifty shades of pink lippies, you can probably catch me swiping my plastic for yet another pair of shiny, pointed gold flats.
