10 Fall Essentials for Every College Girl
Transition into the cooler months with these 10 must-have items.
Summer breezed by, and now there’s a change in the air. Leaves are starting to fall, all things pumpkin related are back on the menu, and suddenly you’re wondering things like, “did I leave my favorite jacket back home?!” This can only mean one thing: FALL IS HERE! For a smooth transition into the season, here are the 10 items you’re going to need.
They don’t call it sweater weather for nothing! This is such a staple item for fall, because you can dress it up or down. Heck, you can even wear it to bed and wake up ready for class in it! Nobody will ever know, and even if they do, they won’t even judge you for it. That’s the beauty of fall semester.
2. Trendy Coffee Travel Mug
Cool weather means warm beverages for your walks to class. If you want to feel a little less basic with your pumpkin spice latte (no judgement– they’re delicious), use one of these adorable travel mugs. They’re also eco-friendly… You know, in case mom wonders why you charged one to the credit card. *insert princess emoji*
3. Plush blanket
Cuddle season is a real thing! For those movie nights in with the girls, you’re going to want an oversized throw to cozy up in. Cable knit and fleece are the top picks for fall.
You can’t go wrong with a good pair of booties! They make daytime outfits look much more put-together, and they’re way more comfortable than regular heels for a night out. Plus, they’ll keep your toes warm on those chilly evenings that turn into mornings.
Because balling on a college budget can be tough when you’re addicted to $5 Starbucks coffee, a Keurig is the best investment for fall. Stock up on hot cocoa and pumpkin spice latte K-cups if you’re feeling festive.
6. Cozy socks
Every girl needs a pair of cozy, and equally as adorable socks. Trust me, it just makes hanging out in your dorm room that much more fun. Throw them on with slightly shorter boots and a long sleeved dress for a perfect fall look.
Of course, a chic scarf is a must-have when heading into the cooler months. It’s great for layering, and can switch up any outfit. Not to mention, it’s the perfect travel accessory!
8. Trendy hat
A nice felt hat just screams fall! From floppy to fedora styles, these are just too cute to pass up. (I’ll take one in every color please!)
Warm vanilla and spice scented candles instantly transform your room into an autumn abyss. Caution: once you light one, you probably won’t be able to leave the house. Grab a good book or spend sometime reorganizing your Pinterest boards while you let one of these babies burn.
10. Tote bag
Never underestimate the power of a nice tote! Opt for plum or burgundy if you want something that’s more in season, or choose a classic brown or black if you prefer something that will last you all year.
