College is an interesting place. We think we are becoming adults, growing into who we are supposed to be, and while (hopefully) that's happening, we also catch on to some pretty unique trends. Although it differs from university to university, depending on the location, weather, etc., here is a list of clothes and accessories that were irrelevant until you came to college.
So even if you've just rolled out of bed, no one will know.
2. Laptop stickers
You can rep your letters while looking studious.
3. Ugly sandals
4. Nike shorts
So you can at least look like you went to the gym.
5. White high-top Converse sneakers
Very cute, but I'm not sure how this came to be a thing.
6. Backpack buttons
Because why not put your letters on everything you own?
7. Iced coffee
Delicious and energizing.
No makeup? No problem.
9. High-waisted shorts
An excuse to wear short-shorts without showing too much skin.
10. Baseball caps
When dry shampoo just isn't cutting it.
11. Nike running shoes
So your feet aren't killing you by the end of the day.
12. Riding boots/Hunter boots
Keeps those feet warm while looking good.
13. North Face or Patagonia fleeces
The warmest jackets you'll ever wear.
14. Game day pins
Remind you that you're "always wearing your letters," even while tailgating.
15. Frat tanks
To show how much the gym is paying off.
Keep you warm while protecting you from the elements (i.e. wind and rain).
For added warmth, whether they're tied around the waist or worn normally.
18. Spirit Jerseys
Huge and comfy.
19. Fleece or puffer vests
Perfect for those 50 degree fall days.
20. Flower crowns
Used way more than you think, from Bid Day to Waltzes.
21. Longchamp tote bags
Because they carry everything, from your laptop to your water bottle.
