Starting a new semester requires an editorial eye. Whether you’re making your first move into freshman dorms or you’ve worked your way up to off-campus housing with a little more room, you’ve got to pack with a goal of covering the biggest number of wearing situations in the least amount of space. Here are our favorite multitaskers for a chilly fall on campus, plus some ideas for broadening your horizons when you’re out of class.

This fall, chunky knits aren’t just super-cozy - they’re off-the-runway hot. A cover-up or sweater coat with distinctive pattern or detail adds stylish warmth to lots of different looks. Keep it a little roomy so you can add layers underneath as temperatures drop. You need a pair that can handle a hustle across campus when you’re late for class but still look cute with a dress. Oh, booties, is there anything you can’t do? This fashion must is throw-on easy with a tee or hoodie when it’s morning coffee run time. And unlike a baggy pair of sweats, leggings also work with a tunic sweater or to add some extra coverage to a casual dress or some heavily destroyed jeans.It’s harder to lose track of your stuff when you’ve got a tote that’ll hold it all - especially when it’s got some pockets to keep everything organized, and when it looks this good.

New to the school and far from home? Start making friends with a stop at the student activities office to see what events, student groups and campus organizations are a good fit for you. And don’t forget about that wide world off-campus. If it’s a college town, chances are you’ll find an assortment of entertainment venues offering student discounts.
