5 Essentials Every Collegiette Needs to Become the Campus “It Girl”

From Blair Waldorf to Regina George to Cher Horowitz, “it girls” have been dominating the school since, well, forever! Their wardrobes are to die for, they’ve got equal parts sass and class, and they know just how to command a room. But these glamorous teens have nothing on the pink obsessed, blonde bombshell that is Elle Woods! Not only was she the go-to girl at the fictional CULA, but she also managed to work her way to becoming that girl at Harvard Law School. Seriously, how can someone be that bomb.com?

We could definitely stand to learn a thing or two from this college “it girl”! And let’s thank our lucky stars that she’s willing to spill the tea on her fab ways! Follow Elle’s lead and you’ll be BU’s hottest “it girl” in no time!

Reading is fundamental for any “it girl”

If you’re going to be an “it girl”, you’ve got to look the part. No excuses! Elle knew that Cosmo was the guide to life. Well, we collegiettes have StyleWatch! There’s no better source to read for the latest and greatest on street and celeb style. Get a monthly dose of StyleWatch and you’ll forever be up to date in the fashion department (every “it girl’ has to be, after all)! Even better, TheOutfit.com is always just a click away! We know Elle would approve!

You can never underestimate the power of a good mani

If there’s one thing “it girl” Elle maintained, it was her perfectly polished mani! One of her best gal pals is a nail tech for crying out loud! We may not be able to make frequent trips to the nail salon like her, but no one ever said we couldn’t do the mani ourselves (even Elle was caught doing her own nails in the Legally Blonde intro). To begin building your “it girl” status, you’re going to have to give those nails a makeover. And who better to turn to than Milani! With their Color Statement Nail Lacquer, you’ll experience exceptionally long lasting color and non-stop shine! What “it girl” could turn down a product like that?

A little sparkle never hurt!

Elle always knew how add a little something extra special to her look (and her resume, might we add). She was always adorned in just the right touch of sparkle. And you can be too! With MissMe flash tattoos, you can spice up your new StyleWatch inspired look with a few gleaming body modifications! They’ll help you stand out in all the right ways on your journey to becoming an “it girl”.

Behind every “it girl” is a picture perfect smile

Can Elle’s smile light up a room or what? Her pearly whites shine to perfection. If you’re going to be a poppin’ “it girl” like her, you can’t afford to not take care of your smile. That’s when Colgate will become your new BFF! With their Optic White Actis and Optic White Toothpaste, there’s no way you won’t have your best smile. Watch as your teeth become five shades whiter— no rinsing, no mess involved—after using Colgate’s amazing toothpaste and pairing it with their whitening pen. Remember, your best accessory is your smile! Every “it girl” knows that.

Taking care of your skin is key

You don’t want your makeup and the impurities you accumulate on your face throughout the day to irritate your skin by the end of the night, do you? We think Elle has answered for you— no! When you’re ready to take off your face, turn to Simple for your makeup removal needs. Simple Cleansing Wipes are tough on waterproof products and gentle on your skin, working to cleanse and remove impurities from even the most stubborn makeup. The added vitamin E and pro-vitamin B5 will even help smooth, soften, and nourish your skin. No “it girl” would be caught dead with messy makeup still clinging onto her skin (no offense to you Elle dawg! We know Warner was a jerk so we’ll make an exception).So there you have it! With just a few simple steps and the must-have essentials, you will become our campus “it girl” in just a matter of time. We look forward to seeing you strut down Comm Ave. looking and feeling your best! And when you do, be sure to remember where you learned you fa ways and thank Elle Woods and our lovely sponsors!

But wait! We couldn’t let you walk away without Elle’s number one “it girl” pro tip. You’ll forever turn heads if you just remember to...

You had to have seen that one coming!
