How To: The most important staple items to have in your wardrobe consist of exactly what this Fashionista is wearing. A black blouse can be worn with basically any bottom and can even be tucked into a high-waisted waistline. Owning a pair of dark skinny jeans is another item that is key to your college closet. With the cold weather upon us, every Fashionista should have a pair of leather or faux leather boots in a neutral color. After you have a few staple items you embellish any outfit with jewelry or a fashion scarf!
