When heading off to college, you’re sure to receive a long checklist of essentials from your school that tells you to bring everything from bedding and bath towels to a mini-fridge. Unfortunately, colleges don’t provide a style guide to tell you which clothes, shoes and accessories to pack.

Thankfully, Amazon has a curated selection of all the style staples that any college girl can utilize. This section has everything a student needs in their wardrobe, from dressy clothes that they can wear out to casual pieces they will reach for daily. From class and studying in the library to hanging in the cafeteria and going out at night, there are lots of occasions to pack for!

Below, shop six clothing must-haves for every college girl that are available now on Amazon for $40 or less.
