For someone who doesn’t like holding bags, cross-body bags are the answer! Wear it across to keep it securely attached to you, or simply sling it over your shoulder.

12. Flats


For those who aren’t fans of sneakers, flats are for you! Wear them around to class when the weather is warm, and make sure they’re comfy enough for a long day.

Being a college girl can make your life messy, but never your style. Make sure you have the must-have essentials, and just add to them whatever else you need. You can still look cute in a casual outfit, it just has to comfy and simple for a college day.
