WHAT TO WEAR: Greek Life

June 22nd, 2016 at 2:10am

Sorority recruitment is an exciting and nerve-racking time for both active members and potential new members. Whether you are a freshman or not, you may have considered going through recruitment. There are numerous decisions you will have to make during this time to find the perfect home for you. Choosing the right outfit can be difficult, which is why it is great to refer to examples, such as this Fashionista!

If you have ever seen a “Total Sorority Move” post, than you have probably seen the stereotype that sorority girls love Lilly Pulitzer. What is better than having a vibrant floral pattern on every planner, tumbler and keychain you own? The Lilly Pulitzer look is not for everyone, but it is a fun and colorful way to stand out. This Fashionista embraces the tropical pattern entirely. This fit and flare dress is complete with a V-neck line and a cap sleeve. The dress is flattering to her figure and complementary to her sun-kissed skin.

Another brand that is a favorite of sorority girls all around is Alex and Ani. This brand is known for bracelets that represent different parts of your life. They are a fantastic conversational piece to have during recruitment and an easy way to relate to other girls. The rest of the jewelry is delicate and doesn’t take away from the overall look.

As far as your beauty routine goes, you want to show that you made an effort to present yourself in a professional manner, while still looking natural. This Fashionista added some blue eyeliner under her eyes as a nice accent to her dress and skin. The rest of her look is simple and effortless.

You may get stuck standing out in the sun as you are waiting outside to enter the next sorority house, so don’t forget to bring a solid pair of sunglasses. Top off the whole outfit with a classic pair of nude open-toe heels. Every girl could use a pair of nude shoes for any occasion, Greek or not.

The most important thing to remember when going through recruitment is to just be yourself. Greek life can lead you to amazing opportunities and friendships. Always go in with an open mind and an outfit reflective of your personality.

One Simple Change: Trade out the heels for some flats or strappy sandals. This is a way to dress down the outfit for a casual occasion, such as a brunch!
