I take my role as the oldest of four siblings seriously, especially with my sisters. Now, my youngest sister has flown the coop to start her next four years at the University of Southern California, and naturally, of all the questions one younger sister may ask an older sister before she heads to college, all Miki Joshua wants to discuss is what to pack for her big move to Los Angeles and her first semester as a USC Trojan. Now we can't have her not repping the family name in style, so I rounded up 30 chic but affordable items I knew would guarantee her the title of best dressed on campus. 

Keep scrolling to see the chic fall items I'm recommending to my sister and ordering for myself.
