Episode 7

We have been asked many times “what do you wear in Law School” and “how can I prepare?” Here are our takes on how to get your wardrobe in tip-top shape before you hit the courtroom for the first time!


What to stock up on if you’re a 0L? 

-silk/satin shells 

-silk/satin tops that can stand alone

-multiple suits (especially when you get ready for interviews/summer jobs and volunteering) 

-loafers (flats are life savers)

-chunky heeled CLOSED toe shoes

-slack pants 



you won’t wear above at the very beginning but only a few times but later when you don't have time to shop you will be glad you did it then!


What to wear on the first day?

-jeans and a cute top

Check out madewell, target, j.crew, lou and grey, loft and Nordstrom actual pieces to wear on your first day!
