Everyone can use a good pair of jeans in their university wardrobe, but that doesn’t mean you need to purchase a pair brand new—especially when “distressed” and “worn” jeans are the looks that are trending 🙃. Look for a pair that fits well so you’ll be comfortable throughout an entire day of classes.
p.s. purchasing a pair of jeans secondhand instead of new saves over 2,600 gallons of water…just something to think about!
Comfortable sneakers are a must-have for all that walking you do as a student! We recommend opting for a pair in neutral tones so you can wear them with multiple outfits. You can’t go wrong with these options from Nike, Veja, Madewell and more.
A backpack is an essential accessory for carrying around your books and laptop, but that doesn’t mean it has to be boring. These secondhand options from popular brands like Rebecca Minkoff, Stoney Clover Lane, Herschel, etc. are both stylish and functional.
