Summer is slowly coming to an end. It's time to say goodbye to everyday sweat pants in your hometown and say hello to game days, nights at the bars and various other opportunities to get dressed up (when we aren't in our track shorts for class of course). As we get closer to the new semester, it's time to do a little shopping as we try to stay up to date on the latest trends. So here's the ultimate checklist for your closet this semester.
