If you’ve chosen a college in a different climate zone that your hometown, then adjusting to the weather is just one more college transition that’s going to take place. The south-bound northerners will relish the warm fall days and mild winters, while the north-bound southerners will realize quickly that long underwear are very real and very necessary.
Preparing your wardrobe for the climate change ahead is quite simple, and will afford you a back to school shopping spree!
Wardrobe needs for warmer climates:
- Cotton T-shirts (especially with the school logo or mascot)
- Tank tops
- A few sundresses
Wardrobe needs for cooler climates:
- Winter coat (think: warm and waterproof)
- Snow boots
- Heavy socks
- Knit scarves
- Wool cap
- Heavy pants of all kinds
