What To Wear To A College Party

The back-to-school season has finally arrived and it’s now time to address one of the most daunting questions for every college female: What to wear to a college party? Stop stressing. The answer is simple. Take a look…

Laid Back Casual Vibes

There’s no easier way to look effortlessly chic than with a simple blouse and tattered jeans or a trendy leather jacket paired with a lace up top (duh!)

Black On Black On Black

If there’s one outfit you know you can always fall back on to wear to a college party, this would be it. All black errrrthing. A head-to-toe dark as night outfit just exudes style, without looking too dressed up…or too dressed down. Stick to different shades and materials of black to keep from looking too monotone.

Dressy (But Not TOO Dressy)

A graphic tee is perfect to wear to a college party because they can be great conversation starters. Whether it’s your favorite band, a clever phrase, or a sweet design- chances are, someone will have something to say about it. Dress up the tee with a tight-fitted skirt, creating the ideal combo of sweet and sassy. Booties will give the outfit a more dressed up vibe, while sandals or sneaks will tone it down.

Simple and Trendy

One outfit that will always work for any college party is a basic tank (experiment with different cuts and fits), a slim fitted jean, booties and a bold piece of jewelry. Obviously this is a pretty unrestricted set of guidelines- so have fun with it.

Some tips on what to wear to a college party:

1. Don’t wear anything you don’t want to get ruined.

College parties = booze = drunk people = accidents are likely to happen.


2. Don’t wear heels.

Sure they look cute with that getup, but your feet will thank you the next morning. (Plus I think heels look pretty silly in a grungy old college house.)

3. If you’re going to bring a coat, make sure it’s not your favorite one.

Good chance you end up leaving at the party. PS – college parties are always about 1000 degrees hotter than it is outside.

4. Wear a cross body bag.

Small enough to not become a nuisance, big enough to hold your shit, secure enough not to get left on the bathroom sink.

5. Don’t stress too much about it.

No one’s going to remember what you were wearing anyway.
