Look, we get it. You’re a college student who¬†probably doesn’t have a ton of money. But who doesn’t want to have a cute wardrobe?

When it comes to clothes, there’s one saying that sums it up: Buy nice or buy twice. I’ve found that when I invest in high-quality versions of certain items, getting dressed is much easier on a day-to-day basis – and because these items look so great and last for so long, I end up buying way less.

Now, you don’t need to invest in high-end versions of every item. There are definitely certain things that are best left to Forever 21, but these five items are classics. Invest in them. I can honestly say you won’t regret it.
