6 College Clothes Packing Essentials, From Someone Who Has WAY Too Many Clothes

Packing for college is tough, especially if it's your first time. Trust me, I am an incoming college freshman and am currently staring at my closet. However, I am going breakdown the wardrobe essentials that I know I have to pack. I hope this helps you get started with packing your wardrobe for college. Really, whatever you end up wearing will be great as long as it makes you feel comfortable and confident!

1. Athletic clothes

@ktmusser

At my highschool, pretty much everyone dressed up for school in jeans, cute tops, and jewelry. However, from what I have heard, college is much more relaxed. Therefore, athletic clothes are a must for going to classes or just hanging out.

I recommend bringing a couple pairs of track shorts and leggings as you never know how cold it is inside the buildings. Also, bring some tank tops.

If you're going to a school where it's warm then you will be hot walking around outside this fall. Why not wear clothes that will make you feel more comfortable.

2. Graphic tees

@chloemarieee

This fairly new trend is perfect for college! Cute graphic tees can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion, so definitely bring some with you.

3. Jeans

@lojasschurhaus

A nice pair of jeans is perfect with a cute top for spending the weekend with your friends. Throw on a cute pair of heels, and you're all set! OR jeans even look perfect with a graphic tee for late fall when it starts getting cooler!

4. Dressier tops

@sorayabakhtiar

Bring a couple dressier tops for weekends out! With the jeans that are already packed, it will be a perfect, yet comfortable look!

5. Shoes

@flordemariafashion

Now I know shoes are not clothes, but I am joining them in this category because they are my favorite item and an important factor in packing up clothes for college! I personally am going be doing a shoe rotation for my dressier shoes, rotating them with the seasons.

However, here are the necessities you need to pack regardless of the season:

- Tennis shoes (for walking to classes)

- Slides (Birks work great!)

- Shower Shoes (cannot forget these)!

6. Jean Jacket

@lisa_mthembu

I love the jean jacket trend! They are literally perfect to throw over any outfit and with a couple necklaces can really change up your look. If you can't already tell, you cannot bring all of your clothes to college so having little differences in the clothes you re-wear will change up your look.

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

There's been a recent boom in the popularity of vintage style looks and up-cycling thrifted finds to sell at, usually, an outrageous price. Is this ethical? Or does it defeat the whole purpose of thrifting in the first place?

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

One day, I was scrolling through Twitter and came across a tweet about upper-middle-class class people thrift shopping. I personally was against the up cycling/re-selling trend because I thought it to be greedy. Then, I began to see more and more tweets, and then stated to see ones about those who buy thrifted, name brand items and sell them for what they're actually worth instead of the very low price they got them for.

Holidays With the Family?

Should retail outlets close on holidays so their employees can be with their families?

For the past few years, having stores open on Thanksgiving has become a popular trend. The sales have started earlier on the day known as Gray Thursday. Now, the Mall of America has taken a bold stand and is closing its doors on Thanksgiving. They are very excited in giving the day back to their workers so they can spend time with their family.

Black Friday: Explained

Time to question this unofficial corporate holiday.

On a personal level, Black Friday has always confused me. Everyone just ate a ton and spent all day with their families—why would we want to go out and vigorously shop, fighting crowds? I totally see why other people want to go do it, but I’ve never quite understood the concept myself. While I’ve been Black Friday shopping once or twice, I don’t get that excited about it unless it’s an opportunity to spend time with family or friends. Don’t get me wrong; I am the queen of bargains. Still, I never seem to have the energy to go out into the jungle of shoppers early the day after Thanksgiving, or even immediately after Thanksgiving dinner. Many people, though—including my loved ones—are enthusiastic about Black Friday shopping, and it seems most other Americans are the same way. So, it’s worth looking at the reasons for this commercially-driven, unofficial American holiday.

The day after Thanksgiving has always been regarded by many as the beginning of the Christmas season. While not a federal holiday, many people take off work, spend time at home with their families, and enjoy the beginning of the holiday season. This Friday off turned into a prime opportunity to begin the never-ending chore of Christmas shopping. Soon it became one of the busiest shopping days a year, which companies capitalized on by bringing the best deals of the year to this day we know as Black Friday.
