WHAT TO WEAR: Greek Life

May 19th, 2016 at 2:00am

Walk through DePaul’s quad on any sunny afternoon, and you’re bound to see students making the most of the weather. Greek life at DePaul is not exceptionally big, but is growing steadily each year, and for those involved, it creates a tight knit community. “You’re bound to see a lot of people wearing their letters around campus and you start to know who is in which Greek organization,” said this Fashionista.

This Fashionista was in the quad after her sorority’s philanthropy event which included fun, outdoor field day activities. To complement her letters, this Fashionista opted for a simple, black pair of leggings that are both comfortable and functional—which is perfect because the event is all about being active.

It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of “athleisure” clothing: where fashion meets functionality. That’s what really drew me into this Fashionista’s look. I loved the way she incorporated her style into the nature of the event with cool sneakers and big shades. Upcoming sunny days are the perfect excuse to finally break out/invest in a new pair of sunglasses for summer! It seems that after a long winter, Chicago can’t seem to figure out the season, so tank tops work great for layering under sweaters, hoodies or crewnecks, making them an easy switch if it gets warm mid-day. With a simple tank top like this one, the possibilities are endless for spring and summer weather! This Fashionista said she usually styles her Greek letters with leggings such as these or with skinny jeans but is looking forward to wearing them with shorts and skirts as the weather warms up.

One Simple Change: Although I love the way the tank works for this event, styling it with dark-wash skinny jeans and sandals with an accessory like a cardigan or statement necklace would take this tank top a new level for class, library or just grabbing coffee with sisters. This Fashionista would be ready for a #wearyourletterswednesday post any day of the week!
