Rush Week: What to Wear

Planning Rush Week looks can be a daunting task. Our top tip? Choose clothes and accessories that you not only feel comfortable in, but also speak to your unique personality. We broke down the sorority recruitment process by day (though schedules vary by university) so you can impress stress-free.

Comfort is key on your first day as you’ll be walking from house to house. Pair your school-issued tee with tailored shorts, cropped pants or a preppy skirt. (We picked a pink pant that’s playful yet polished.) Your secret weapon on this busy day? Blotting tissues. They’ll ensure you’re fresh-faced and oil-free from the first house to the last.

Take things up a notch with a sundress. Look to feminine styles with prints or textures to subtly set your look apart. If you still have several houses to visit, opt for a shimmery yet smart flat. When you get down to the final tours, lift your look with a pump or wedge. We chose a bejeweled wedge that catches the sunlight with every step. A cheerful nail polish —  we especially love this coral shade — is a constant reminder that this week is all about having fun and finding your place.

Stand out from the crowd of black dresses with a saturated jewel tone. On-trend details, like one-shoulder necklines and peplums, create a sharp look that also complements your figure. Don’t go too heavy with your accessories. Instead, select one or two statement pieces that truly shine.

Keep it fun and simple on this special day. Since you’ll be running to meet your new sisters, slip into the flat sandal you wore on your first day. Wear a lightweight, fitted camisole or top you can layer under the T-shirt your house will give you. There will be plenty of photographs to commemorate the day — so don’t forget your lip gloss for flawless shots.

More is More: How To Stack Your Wrists

One of our favorite trends we’re seeing right now? Stacking your wrists with layers upon layers of bracelets. There’s a party on your wrists and everyone’s invited.

When it comes to this trend the “more is more” rule applies. As for the other rules? There are no other rules. Follow these simple guidelines to rocking a runway-worthy stacked wrist.

  1. Stick with one arm: If you’re dipping your toe into the trend, play it safe and focus on one arm. Diving in? Adorn both wrists with your favorite bangles and bracelets but keep one arm relatively bare with a charm bracelet or oversize watch. Speaking of watches…
  2. Play with a timepiece: The cornerstone of any high-fashion stack game is a watch. Whether it has a big, round face encrusted with crystals or a simple strap and mod dial, adding on the extras is a sure-fire hit.
  3. Pick a statement bracelet: Bonus points if your statement bracelet actually makes a statement. The BCBGeneration Affirmation bracelets are perfect for this.
  4. Consider texture and size: Mix metals with resin or leather. Mix thick cuffs with thin bangles. Or, keep everything in the same tone or size. We love this trend because the combinations and possibilities are endless.

So to conclude our lesson, just remember this: If you look in the mirror and it seems like too much, then you’ve got it!

Beyond Blue: How to Wear Printed Denim

Go beyond blue this season with bold, printed denim. We took one of our favorite pairs from Joe’s Jeans and styled it four different ways. Rest assured, these floral-print pants are no one-wear wonder.

  1. Casual Friday: Make casual Friday “Take Your Style to Work Day.” Here we offset the pant’s colorful print with a crisp white blouse. A collection of classic accessories, a Michael Kors watch and handbag and Antonio Melani sandal, perfect the polished look.
  2. Evening Out: Cut the floral’s sweetness with edgy zip-front sandals, shoulder-dusting earrings and a studded clutch. The bright pink top by BCBGMAXAZRIA complements the fun print but keeps the look sophisticated with a single sleeve.
  3. Retro Weekend: Play up the jean’s feminine print with retro-inspired styling. Cat-eye sunglasses and loafers channel 1950s glamour. Maintain your modernity by adding stacked bangles and a Cremieux striped top.
  4. Summer Festival: Easy does it when you’re spending your day in the sun. Choose a breezy top and strappy sandal for a look that’s cool and comfy. A bright Cole Haan cross-body bag keeps your cell phone and other essentials stylishly secure while a golden cuff adds a touch of shine.
