Sorority and fraternity members proudly wear their Greek letters around campus. From bags to sweatshirts, to shirts and tanks, Greek life apparel is everywhere. Styling options range from comfortable to preppy and just plain “fratty.” This Fashionista (one of my sisters) takes a casual route and makes her sorority tank pop against muted colors.
Graphic tees and tanks are fun garments to add a kick to an ensemble. Her Phi Sig skull tank stands out not only because of the graphic, but also because of the vibrant colors. She balances out the statement tank with a complementary, faded green jacket and a chic pair of caramel boots. Her winged liner meshes well with both the bold graphic and her fingers full of rings. As a final touch, she wears an oversized, two-toned watch that peeks out from her rolled sleeves.
What I love most about Greek attire is how unique looks emerge from the same garment. Each sister can wear the same shirt, tank, hat or anything else in their own way, melding sisterhood with individuality. This applies to almost every graphic top as well. To create an edgier look, wear the tank with a pair of leather shorts and combat boots. For a boho vibe, pair it with a maxi skirt and hat. Or, for a casual day of running errands, throw on a pair of denim cutoffs and you’re set — no accessories required due to the graphic!
While Greek life emphasizes sisterhood/brotherhood and coming together as one, apparel allows members to express their personality. Wearing the same letters brings them together, but how they style those letters sets them apart.
One Simple Change: Since summer is quickly approaching, take this tank to the boardwalk with a trendy pair of shades and a cute pair of shorts.
