Another essential aspect will be your wardrobe, being a student means rarely having any time to be at home, or even to go back home or to your dorm and change. 

Usually, you will spend all your day at campus in classes or the library, in a coffee shop having a study group with friends, or even having a fun afternoon with your classmates.

So you need a comfy and cozy stylish outfit you can wear all day long.
