What are some of your college wardrobe essentials? Thanks!

I think college wardrobe essentials completely depend on your personal style/your school/what part of the country you are in/etc. For example, at my sister’s college, they wear ‘real clothes’ to class everyday. However, at my college, everybody wears xl t-shirts and tennis shoes to class. 

Here are my personal college wardrobe essentials. I tried to link items that I own that are available/similar pieces:

For class:

For weekends/etc.:


  • business attire: as a business major, we have to wear business casual/formal attire for presentations. I have a few business shift dresses, a pencil skirt, a blouse, a few midi skirts, a suit, and two business jumpsuits in my college closet at the moment. Those things are also good to have on hand for interviews, etc. I also have a few pairs of heels to pair with business outfits.
  • gameday outfits: for gamedays at my school, everybody dresses up! I usually keep 5-6 dresses and rompers on hand for gameday attire. 
  • chapter attire: my freshman/sophomore year, I had tons of ‘real clothes’ in my closet to wear to sorority chapter. If you plan on joining a sorority, it’s good to have a few business casual outfits on hand. 
  • home: I also have a ton of pieces I wear when I go home/travel. When I am at home, I pretty much never wear just a big tshirt + nike shorts. I prefer to wear ‘real clothes’ as often as I can. I have a few dresses for thanksgiving, easter, and other holidays. I also have a lot of colorful, fun pieces for travel. 

I have been posting my ootd’s throughout my 4 years of college:

I also specifically have my ‘going-out’ outfits here:

I hope that could help answer your question! Again, my college wardrobe essentials might be completely different than others, but these are just the things I find myself wearing the most often in college :)

“We haven’t had sex in a month, you’re just going to tease me like that?” | Shawn Mendes

Highly requested by many! ( @lillydlt , & many, many anons ) 

I was sitting in the airport, waiting for Shawn to arrive so I could finally see my boyfriend after a long month with no physical contact. He’s been really busy on tour and he’s finally coming home today and I am so excited to see him because I have missed him like crazy.

Thankfully, Shawn knew I was coming and called his security guards to come and protect me because his fans have a bad habit of attacking me and mobbing me. They’re pretty insane.

He texted me a minute ago and said that he was picking up his luggage and that he should be where I am any minute. 

I feel kind of special having this big dudes surrounding me to protect me. I like knowing that I am safe and the chances of someone attacking me with them here are slim.

“There he goes,” Anthony, one of Shawn’s bodyguards, tells me and points over to Shawn carrying his suitcase.

I immediately ran over to him and embraced him in a tight hug which caused him to drop his bags but I don’t think he minded. “I missed you so much, baby girl,” he smiled widely as he attached his lips to mine. “Damn, you look so beautiful.”

“I missed you, Shawn!” I smiled widely and pulled away, allowing him to pick his stuff back up. “Are you ready to sleep in your own bed again?”

He nodded and chuckled lightly. “Hell yes! I am tired of sleeping on a bus or a hotel room, I want to be back in my own house, with my own bed, with my girl.”

It was hot in Shawn and I’s shared house so I decided to put on my Nike Tempo running shorts. I pulled my hair into a messy bun and slipped on a white tank top.

I walked down the stairs and saw Shawn sitting on the couch so I walked over to him and sat next to him. “What are you drinking?” I asked when I noticed he had a cup in his hands.

“Pepsi, do you want some?”

I nodded and took the cup from his hands, tilting it to take a sip but instead of going in my mouth, it went down my shirt and on the floor. Don’t ask me how that happened because I don’t know.

“Fuck,” I muttered and set the cup down on the coffee table. I quickly got up and grabbed a rag from the laundry room, soon returning to the living room to pick up my mess.

I bent down in front of Shawn and began to wipe up the spilled soda. I heard him groan from behind me and I looked back at him with a confused face. “Are you okay?”

“We haven’t had sex in a month, you’re just going to tease me like that?”

I furrowed my eyebrows together. “What are you even talking about?”

“First, you come down here in that,” he stated, gesturing to my outfit, “and then, you purposely spill the coke which got your shirt wet and also the floor so you bend down in front of me to tease me.”

I chuckled lightly. “I mean, if that’s what you think I’m doing, okay.”

“Babe, you’re killing me over here. Can we please go and do something?”

I smiled lightly and stood up, grabbing his hand and pulling him up off the couch. “Why don’t you come and help me clean up the mess I made?” I smirked, gesturing down to my now wet body,
