College Wardrobe Must Haves for the Busy Student: Featuring The Closet Dime

This post has been a long time coming! And I super appreciate the patience The Closet Dime shop had with me! First off a disclaimer: I did receive my shirt for free, but I am not receiving any other sort of compensation for this post.

Rachel, the creator of The Closet Dime, was kind enough to design a shirt specifically for you guys! We went over a few ideas and ended up selecting a tank top that says “Coffee & Creativity.” If anyone knows me, or the life of an art student, I live off of caffeine. A’la Gilmore Girl’s style. So this is a great fit. To kick off my list of college wardrobe must haves…

Graphic T-shirts and Tank Tops from The Closet Dime

Graphic t-shirts and tank tops are what I wear 90% of the time. They are a great layering piece, demonstrated here with a denim jacket I got on clearance at Old Navy!College Wardrobe Must Haves for the Busy Student ft. The Closet Dime

Solid Colored Basics! And maybe a couple of pattern pieces…

Tank tops, jeans, shorts, and t-shirts. Cardigans, scarves. Easy layering pieces. The Closet Dime shirts and tanks are great for this! As you can see in my photos, they are easily paired with basic pieces. I styled mine with a jean jacket, black shorts, and doc martens.


Comfortable Shoes

Finding a comfortable shoe for you to walk in is super important for a college campus. You walk everywhere. I mean everywhere. Whether it is raining or not. So, good shoes are a must. I love my Docs for day to day. The burgundy color goes with most of my closet, and they’re comfortable and supportive in the ankle.

I don’t care if you think they’re dumb. Get some rainboots or some other kind of waterproof shoe! Otherwise, you are going to be getting sick just about everytime it rains. Reminder: YOU WALK EVERYWHERE.
