Recruitment is the time to show each sorority who you are outside of our classes.
Although what you wear isn’t everything, it is undeniably a signature of yourself. Anna Wintour, the editor-in-chief of Vogue once said, “Create your own style. Let it be unique for yourself and yet identifiable for others.” Needless to say, Anna knows what she’s talking about! What you wear to recruitment will be your way to stand out and show these organizations how much of a great asset you would be!
First and foremost, stay true to yourself! Find outfits that express who you are as an individual.
You’re trying to represent the best version of yourself and no one else. The primary purpose of recruitment is to find the right organization for yourself, so don’t be afraid to show who you truly are!
Wear an accessory that can be a point of conversation.
You never know what a cute necklace that you maybe made yourself can lead to!
Don’t be afraid to stand out!
If you have a hairdo in mind that you’ve always wanted to try, this is the time to do it. Recruitment can be overwhelming for the sisters as well so this always helps to make a lasting impression!
Show your true colors, literally.
If you happen to be a makeup artist or a person who’s always had an interest in makeup, don’t hesitate to show off your new Kylie Jenner lip gloss, work your cat eye, and top it all off with a spritz of your favorite perfume!
Be comfortable with a dash of style!
It’s a long day so you may want to avoid wearing anything that’ll begin to make you sweat in any unusual places.
This is so important when you’re considering what to wear for sorority recruitment. Avoid sweats but be cognizant of the time spent in recruitment!
The good news is that the first two rounds have a more casual side while the last day is a bit more formal. Bring out the heels!
Your best accessory is a smile. After all, you’re never fully dressed without a smile!
All in all, your outfits are the best way to formulate self-expression! Throughout these three days you will meet amazing girls from all over the country and perhaps, the world. You never know who can make an impact on you! Have fun and live in the moment!
