Bring what you would wear everyday to school. Cute tops, jeans (sexy ones for partying, and relaxed one for class). You don't need a prom or homecoming dress but about two nice going out dresses couldn't hurt and some day dresses if you're the type to wear dresses during the day. Definitely bring a good coat (one that works for where your school is and the climate) also bring a light going out coat one you can carry around that isn't heavy that doesn't cost too much so if you put it down and lose it say in a frat house as I have done occasionally you won't be too upset about it. Bring a nice pair of going out shoes, heels, wedges (I prefer) but a popular shoe on my campus are jeffery campbell litas and they are supposedly really comfortable too a bit pricey though but you can find knockoffs basically everywhere. Unless you plan on going to a formal or something which would need a nice cocktail dress and not really a homecoming dress then you won't need anything too dressy. Bring your everyday shoes as well uggs too and don't forget shower shoes (MUST!) and slippers and sneakers if you plan on working out. Don't overthink it just dress in a way that reflects your personal style and that is relaxed because trust me in college it's really not that serious and no one is really paying that much attention unless you're going out of course in which dressing with a nice blouse skinny jeans, and heels is the basic.1
