You've heard the saying
you cant take it with you - right? Well when it comes to
your wardrobe - you can't.... You simply won't have the room to
take all your clothing. Clothes that you can take are what
is practical. Jeans, dresses, polo shirts, t-shirts,

Clothing - Outerwear
When you go off to college, the weather might still be nice if

day, you might need different clothing like a light coat and some thin gloves.
Make sure to pack the right clothing if you don't plan on going
home between when you start school and homecoming day.
Shoes & Footwear

Additionally, it's an excellent idea to have at least 2 pairs of
sneakers with you - because inevitably one will always get wet,
and at least a comfortable pair of walking shoes. Sneakers

great looking sneakers.
Don't forget clothing for special occasions. Graduations
are as special as they come. For young ladies, look for
inexpensive and yet very trendy clothing from Target and Kohl's.
Bring some nice clothing... we are sure you'll use it.
