For the third part in the College Dorm Room Shopping series, I am going to focus on storage. If you missed the first two parts of the series, check out our posts on college dorm room bedding and college dorm furnishings.

Why are storage containers so important to shop for? Dorm rooms are usually tiny – way smaller than you’d probably expect, and therefore you’re going to need to find ways to store all your stuff in order to maximize your space.

Also, if you love fashion, you’re going to need enough room to store all your clothes, shoes, and accessories. Dorm room closets are usually not very large, so you need to get creative with your storage choices.

Fortunately, there are tons of great options when it comes to shopping for storage solutions, and there are lots of ways to hide your stuff creatively.

  1. Go vertical. Horizontal space is limited in a dorm room, so you are going to want to maximize every inch you have. Get tall shelves for your room that aren’t too wide and lots of hooks for your walls.
  2. Raise your bed up. A great space to store stuff that you don’t use very often is under your bed. Definitely buy a set of bed risers and get some containers for under-bed storage to make the most of that space.
  3. Get portable storage. Take into account the weight and portability of every storage container you buy. Ideally, you want to be able to move without unpacking much stuff. If you can find durable containers with handles, it will make moving in and out of your dorm so much easier.
  4. Get measurements. For storage containers and boxes, you’ll be fine. But if you’re planning on purchasing a set of shelves, get out your measuring tape! There’s nothing worse than purchasing and putting together a set of shelves that won’t end up fitting in your space.

This leaning storage rack is arguably the coolest thing I’ve seen all year. It leans against your wall for a stylish look, and includes a shelf, rungs for hanging, and even a built-in hamper.

Hanging closet organizers like this one will change your life, especially if you don’t have a decent dresser. Use them for towels, jeans, sweaters, or even footwear. 

Now that you have an idea of what you’ll need for storage in your dorm room, be sure to check your school’s website to find out how big your room will be, and also talk to your future roommate to find out what they’re bringing. Then shop accordingly.

Safety first! Though currently pregnant with her second child, Rihanna just launched a new loungewear collection promoting safe sex. The Savage X Fenty founder herself modeled a black oversize t-shirt that read “use a condom” in big block letters. “This shirt is old . . .” she joked in the caption of her May 31 Instagram post, posing in scrunched white heeled boots, matching sunglasses, and black biker shorts while holding her growing baby bump.

Rihanna’s playful outfit is just one part of Savage X Fenty’s new YOUniversal Lounge collection, featuring other cheeky messages like a bright blue “I’m a virgin” shirt with the words, “this is a very old shirt,” written in pink underneath. The latest drop also includes colorful ribbed bike shorts and matching bralettes, cropped tank tops, hoodies, cozy sweatpants, and jersey tees. Expect to find vibrant shades of pink, blue, green, and yellow in celebration of the warmer days ahead.

Rihanna’s “use a condom” T-shirt is available to purchase for $70, but with a Savage X Fenty subscription, VIP members can re-create her exact look for $44. Although her shirt definitely carries sound advice, Rihanna has previously stated that she and A$AP Rocky were never “planning against” starting a family together. “I don’t know when I ovulate or any of that type of sh*t. We just had fun,” she told Vogue in her May 2022 cover story. “Then it was just there on the test,” she said, welcoming baby RZA on May 13.

I Look at Nordstrom Daily—30 Anti-Trend Finds I Can't Stop Thinking About

#Nordstrom #Daily30 #AntiTrend #Finds #Can039t #Stop #Thinking

I’ll admit, I have a bad habit when it comes to shopping, sometimes I get so excited about trying new trends and putting my own spin on them that my wardrobe can end up looking like a pile of trends that don’t always stay in style for longer than a season or two.This summer I have two missions, to shop smarter, and to but pieces that are versatile and can be worn over and over again. Naturally, this journey towards timeless chic pieces that I’ll be styling all season long led me to a deep dive on Nordstrom’s site for the best basics I could find. I went in with a few things in mind: great shoes that can go from day to night, jeans that I’ll keep for years, and dresses that can go from the office to happy hour. As always Nordstrom had everything that I was looking for and more from all of my favorite brands like COS and Levi’s and styles that feel fresh and elevated.

While I may be focused on shopping smarter that doesn’t mean I’m willing to sacrifice on style, keep scrolling to see which chic Nordstrom basics I can’t wait to wear this summer.
