WHAT TO WEAR: Sorority Recruitment

When most people hear the word sorority, they think of the stereotypical, rah rah, snotty girls portrayed in adolescent movies. However, I am proud to say that Greek Life at Tulane consists of poised, intelligent, and strong young women. We just went through four days of recruitment, each of which called for a different outfit. My favorite of the four days was “jewel tones” because our only requirement was a color scheme. Each girl was dressed in emerald, plum, navy, or burgundy, with the opportunity to showcase their personal style and individuality.

This outfit really stood out to me with its unique textures and sophisticated appearance. There’s no better way to add some spunk than with a little texture. The intricate detail in the burgundy sweater perfectly complements the suede black skirt. Mixing textures is also a great way to add some edge to an outfit.

This Fashionista did an awesome job accessorizing as well. Something I have been really into lately is jewelry with meaning, such as a city skyline or a lucky charm on a necklace. As somebody who is always looking for different ways to show off her New Orleans pride, I am super jealous of the “nola” ring that is pictured. She is also wearing a roman numeral ring that holds a special place in her heart. Consistent with her silver arm candy, is a timeless silver snake chain necklace that can be worn with just about anything.

Sorority recruitment is all about getting to know each other, and what better way to express yourself than through the perfect outfit. I think we could all use a little style advice form this Fashionista!
