The Ultimate Fashion Guide to College Parties


Partying isn’t on everyone’s agenda during their college years, but there are plenty of individuals out there who like to let loose on the weekends. As always, you’ll want to dress to impress before heading out.

Whether it’s formal dresses for sorority rush week or a breezy summer dress, follow this guide and you’ll look your best at every party you attend.

Feet First

It might sound counterintuitive, but choosing your footwear first can help you assemble the perfect outfit every time. Also, the shoes you choose to wear can make or break your night. Depending on how far you have to walk, a pair of heels might make less sense than comfy slips.

Weigh the comfort a pair of shoes provide over walking distance, because no one likes the ache a pair of heels can bring after hours of trotting around town. You’ll also want to pick a pair of shoes that are versatile. Several college parties are, well, dirty.

There might be a decadent candy table and classy stylings, but drinks are bound to be spilled at some point in the night. You probably don’t want the shoes you wear to class covered in someone else’s Coors Light. So, keep that in mind before heading out.

Once you’ve chosen your shoes, the next step is to dress for the weather. Start with the bottom half of your outfit, choosing something stylish yet comfortable. A cute pair of jeans can be your best friend in colder months, while shorts are the obvious choice for summer.

Whatever you choose, make sure it is something you feel comfortable in. You might even be able to skip this step altogether if the party you’re attending calls for a dress. If you need to wear a dress in colder months, don’t be afraid to pick something with long sleeves.

Providing you aren’t wearing a dress, the next step is to pick out a cute top to compliment the rest of your outfit. Styles are constantly changing, so you’ll want to wear something trendy to stand out in the crowd.

While saving money on food is simple, finding the latest trends on discount can be difficult. Instead of waiting for Forever 21 or Pacsun to hold a sale, head over to Poshmark. You can find all sorts of stylish items that most sellers have only worn once (probably for the same reason, a party).



Colder weather almost always calls for a coat or overshirt, but leaving one of those items hanging somewhere at a party is a guaranteed way to lose it. If you pair a flannel with a cute pair of jeans and a tank top, you’ll be able to stay warm while looking your best. Plus, you can tie the flannel around your waist when you feel too warm.

A light shawl or cardigan paired with a breezy shirt can also help you stay cool inside but warm and toasty outside. The least thing you want is to freeze to death on the way to the party. Let your makeup make your cheeks rosy, not the weather.
