First is what clothes I'm packing. Read: this does not mean shoes (whole different post).
Layering is key:Since I am going to be studying abroad during two major season shifts, I am going to have to layer. That's why I'm bring sweaters and button ups as well as cardigans and t-shirts. I want to stay true to my classic, preppy style while being able to mix & match.
Buy statement pieces there: If you don't know about the magical world of H&M you need to find one. Since I will be there for 4 months I want to kind of blend in, so I am looking to get trendier pieces at H&M. It's cheaper this way and my suitcase will be lighter.
Basically my plan is K.I.S.S. , keep it simple stupid. This way I have what I need but don't spend a lot of time wondering what I am going to wear.
What would you add clothing wise to this list? Any other tips for studying abroad?
