Whether you’re a family member, a friend or an acquaintance, shopping for college students can be tricky.
When it comes to clothing or footwear for college girls, stick with casual pieces that can be easily incorporated into an on-campus wardrobe. Items from brands with serious street style cred — for instance: Off-White, Adidas and Fila — are also good gets. See our top picks for college girls below.
Fila Disruptor 2
Off-White Mini Industrial Belt
Virgil Abloh’s Off-White is one of the buzziest brands of 2018. While the label’s designer duds are a bit out of the average college kid’s price range, the logo’d belts are sure to be a big hit with the fashion-savvy young woman in your life.
