Here are my top Fall picks for essential pieces every College-Girl needs in her closet.

I know first hand when you’re in school you can’t always spend what you want to on clothing so I’ve pulled some pieces that will help you decide what to invest in.  Keep in mind this list is for essential items that every College Girl needs, not fashion pieces, these items are meant to be traditional items you can keep for years.


Must-Have List of Essential Pieces-


They come in hundreds of varieties you can layer with practically anything.

Black skinnies:

These will never go out of style and you can dress these up or down. I prefer the high waisted fit “A little tummy control never hurt anybody”.


This shoe pairs great with skinny jeans and you can find them practically anywhere shows are sold.

These are great for the days you need to dress up for a presentation but don’t want to hike a mile to class in 6-inch stilettos.

Statement Book Bags:

Getting a really cute book bag can add an easy touch of style to any outfit. You will most likely be carrying your books anyway so why not free your hands up in style.


These are often the popular choice but they come in so many different colors and serve as an awesome layering piece for under knit sweaters or over a tank top.

T-shirt dress:

I love that this piece can be worn in a variety of ways all year long, not just for fall but I like it for the fall season. You can throw a scarf over it with a jean jacket and look amazing.


Flared jeans are my favorite I think they are flattering on every body type and make your legs look really long. These pair great with booties, boots and any top of your choice.

Biker jacket:

A neutral colored biker jacket instantly makes you look like a chic fashionista and the good news is they won’t go out of style (hopefully ever).




Hopefully, this helps you narrow down your Fall back to school shopping list.
