10 style essentials to keep in your locker

All kinds of things can go wrong during the course of a school day, and sometimes your #look can face the consequences. We know how hard it is to go from first class to the last without an outfit dilemma, so we've come up with a list of essentials to keep in your locker for all your fashion and beauty needs. With these items, you're sure to have all situations covered. Check 'em out.

1. A cardigan

It's good to keep a cardigan or sweater in your locker as you can put it on if you get chilly during the school day. It's also super helpful for dress-code violations—just cover up the offending top with your cardi and you're good to go.

2. Comfy flats

Those wedges may look super cute when you put them on in the morning, but your feet will probably be hurting by lunch time. Swap 'em out for some super comfy, versatile flats like these from Forever 21.

3. Makeup kit

Smudged eyeliner got you down? Keep a kit with your go-to beauty products in your locker to fix your makeup during the day. Plus, you can use this if you're running late and don't have time to get ready at home.

4. Hair kit

Just like the makeup fix kit, keep a bag with all your hair essentials stashed in your locker to tame your locks when you're having a bad hair day. We recommend a brush, hair ties, bobby pins, a cute headband and dry shampoo.

5. Stain remover

Did your sloppy joe get a little too sloppy at lunch? Keep a stain remover pen (like this one from Tide) in your locker to quickly treat all food related incidents.

6. Period supplies

It's always a good idea to keep extra tampons, pads and—this may sound strange—a spare pair of underwear in your locker. You never know what's going to happen, and it's always good to be prepared.

7. Deodorant or body spray

If you're feeling extra stinky after gym or just looking to freshen up, keeping deodorant or body spray in your locker is the perfect way to prevent any stinky sitches.

8. Umbrella

Caught walking across campus in the rain? No need to worry about your cute outfit! Keep an umbrella in your locker to stay dry in all situations.

9. Blotting paper

Say bye-bye to shiny skin by keeping blotting papers in your locker. They're a fast and easy way to nix any oily patches, and they can be stashed anywhere.

10. A smile!

Excuse the cheese-factor, but in the words of Annie: "You're never fully dressed without a smile." If you're having a crummy day at school, take a T.O. to pop to your locker. Peek in your locker mirror and say outloud to yourself, "I am smart and talented," or "I look fab today!" That'll turn your frown upside down.
