Sorority recruitment season is in full swing, which means, for many of us, we’ll be attending classes and philanthropy events all semester, styling the exact same sorority tees and sweatshirts as everyone else. And while we totally love our sisters, we’re also all about putting our own personal spin on our tried-and-true letters. With that in mind, College Fashionista shares how to wear sorority merch and still keep your personal style intact. Keep scrolling for some serious inspiration that will help you think beyond the t-shirt–and-sweats combo next time you reach for your Greek gear.
Add An On-Trend Jacket
Elevate any simple tee look with a statement jacket. Whether you’re running to class or looking to add a little spice to your next bid day outfit, an on-trend coat is always the solution. Shop CF’s picks below for the perfect pieces to layer over any sorority tee.

Dress It Up With Statement Accessories
It’s no secret that a statement accessory can make any outfit. Especially when it comes to dressing up casual sorority apparel like sweat sets and graphic tees, chunky accessories will be your new BFF (besides your chapter sisters, of course). Layer mixed metal necklaces, or throw on a simple pair of chunky gold hoops, and your next class outfit will be the ultimate sorority serve.

Swap Your Sweats
With so much comfy sorority merch coming your way, it’s easy to just throw on a pair of sweatpants and call it an outfit. While, of course, we all deserve to wear sweatpants (see below), College Fashionista has equally comfortable alternatives that will give you an extra boost of confidence. See below for trendy, flare leggings that will help you achieve the coveted “model off duty” look at your next chapter meeting.

Make It A Set
We get it, sometimes you just have to wear sweatpants. Especially after a long week of recruitment — no judgement here. If you want to stay comfortable for class, but still feel put together, opt for a sweat set! Pair a some fitted joggers with a matching zip up, so you can still rep your sorority letters of course, and your outfit is complete. A matching set will make you look and feel more put together and it requires no extra effort. For an added level of coziness, throw on a pair of UGGs and you’ll be sporting comfy cuteness.

- Abercrombie & Fitch Essential Sunday Sweatpants, $56
- UGG Classic Ultra Mini, $180
Create A Layering Moment
You’ve seen the option to layer a statement jacket over your sorority merch, but don’t forget about layering underneath, too. Grab your favorite long sleeve basic whether it’s a bodysuit or simple crew neck tee and throw it on under your letters the next time you wear them. This simple addition will up your style and add a bonus layer of warmth for chilly walks to class.
