WHAT TO WEAR: Greek Life

The beginning of school is fast approaching! As summer turns to fall, we can count on a few things. One thing we can count on is reading list as long as your arm and the other is great back to school fashion. For a good part of the student body here at Loyola University New Orleans, fall also means the start of fall recruitment season also, known as Rush at some universities.

When I met this Fashionista I couldn’t help but notice her bright white jeans and adorable coral top. Once I got to know this Fashionista, I found her to be a very focused and driven young lady, as well as a sorority woman.

The outfit was simple and bright. What really made me fall in love with this outfit? The wedges. A solid pair of wedges is a great shoe to have in your closet and are great for sorority recruitment! The wedge provides great height and dresses up a plain pair of pants or sundress. Wedges are a practical option for girls going through recruitment in the fall. The shoe is comfortable, stable and easy to find at most stores.  After all, nothing is worse than trying to hold a conversation when your feet are screaming. When I asked this lovely young lady about her advice to those going recruitment, she said, “Be yourself! Look for a group of women you feel comfortable around and can see yourself growing with.”

One Simple Change: Every season is festival season in New Orleans. For a great outfit to wear to festivals switch out your wedges for a pair of flats and throw on a denim jacket for colder days.
