As if being a college student isn’t hard enough, you spend hours trying to plan out the perfect outfits each day. Well, I am here to make the outfit choices easier which will result in more time to sleep in. Here are some closet staples for the average college girl.

1. Jeans


The perfect pair of jeans is not only gorgeous, it is also comfortable and durable. Invest in a pair of cute jeans and wear it until it needs to be replaced. Plus, it can be paired with literally any shirt!
