The 6 Things You Need for Dorm Life


Admit it: it may only be August, but you can’t stop thinking about fall semester. With back-to-school fast approaching, we’re all clocking long hours dwelling on the friends we’ll be seeing again (or meeting for the first time), how to decorate our dorm rooms like interior design divas and what we’ll wear during those crucial first weeks of the semester (hello, first day of class)! Well, rest easy, collegiettes; Victoria’s Secret PINK has made it simple with these 6 things you’ll need for dorm life.

1. Game day apparel

Just in time for back-to-school, PINK has released its all-new PINK Collegiate Collection, and we’re beyond excited. Goodbye to the boring, unflattering shirts from the campus bookstore, hello to the cutest tees, sweats and leggings ever! These are the ultimate must-haves for (fashionably) repping your school spirit.

For those chilly September football games, we recommend the cute tunic hoodies or half-zips. If you’re going to be attending lots of indoor basketball or volleyball games, pick up a throwback jersey or mesh V-neck. Or, get it all (we won’t tell!). You can easily mix and match the tops and bottoms, so you’re ready for game day every day!

There’s more: it’s not just the styles that are new. There are now more schools in the spirited collection than ever before. Do you go to one of the lucky 67?

2. Cute ‘n comfy study clothes

Athletic Tee, $26.50

Aside from all of the fun sporting events, there’s that other reason we go to college… academics! Whether you’re sitting in Psych 101, studying for midterms or completing a bio lab, looking good while staying comfy (and cozy) is essential. After all, it’s super hard to concentrate if you don’t feel comfortable in what you’re wearing.

That’s why we love cotton tees, loose-fit blouses, skinny jeans, boyfriend jeans, leggings (especially tucked into riding boots), pullover sweatshirts, circle scarves, fuzzy socks and stylish cardigans in fun colors and prints. With these pieces, both your style game and your study game will be strong.

3. Dorm décor

PINK Reversible Duvet Cover, $77.95-$99.95

Whether you’re a freshman or a senior, a little bit of homesickness is inevitable (Seeing pictures of our dogs gets us every time!). Fortunately, we’ve discovered a way to relieve our longings for home, short of asking our parents to ship us our puppies. Basically, we make our dorms or apartments as home-y and familiar as possible.

It’s much more difficult to miss your old bed (and home) when you’re lounging in a Pinterest-worthy pad. Pack a duvet you love like this PINK Reversible Duvet Cover, lots of pillows, matching sheets (and an extra pair if you’re not in love with that laundry life), posters and wall decals, a fuzzy rug, personal pictures (of your dogs?! Just a thought), mementos that won’t take up too much space, a bulletin board and a full-length mirror (for all of your outfit selfies, of course). At the end of the day you’ll have a dorm worth drooling over, and you won’t want to leave!

4. Beauty sleep essentials

Sleep Tee, $22.95

We collegiettes work hard, play hard and sleep hard, and we want to look darn cute doing it.

Our nighttime favorites include silky pajama sets for that Sex and the City-esque, “I’m a sophisticated woman” vibe; feminine boxers, because they’re too cute a style not to borrow from the boys; robes and nighties, which never fail to make us feel sexy (#IWokeUpLikeThis); and of course, classic cotton PJs, when we want to make nighttime nostalgia a thing.

You obviously don’t need all of these options for school, but bring your faves, and stock up on the essentials for back-to-school shopping! When you go on a spontaneous midnight snack run with your friends, and everyone is complimenting your sleepwear, you’ll thank us.

5. Shower essentials

Mesh Shower Caddy, $14.95

Every single summer as we pack for college, still reveling in the glory of our full-size tub or lovely tiled shower at home, we forget what shared bathrooms are like. We don’t have to go into the dirty details, but yeah, dirty is a good descriptor.

This year, we’re pledging to finally remember our shower flip-flops, bathroom caddies, thick towels, hair turbans and washcloth sets. Because getting athlete’s foot is not our idea of a fun college souvenir.

6. Sporty looks

Seamless Bralette, $22.95-$24.95 (or special 2/$35)

The sporty chic look is in this season, and you can rock it with the Seamless Bralette by PINK or their newest skinny sweat: the Gym Pant.

So that you don’t look just fit, but also fashionable, pack some or all of these pieces for your college closet: sports bras, spandex shorts or crops, leggings, yoga pants, breathable shirts, sporty hoodies, bright bralettes, cute baseball tees, and eye-catching colored sneakers. You’ll be ready to rock the look that all collegiettes are lusting after!

Gym Pant, $44.95-$49.95

Better start making that list and checking it twice, collegiettes, because fall semester is getting close!
