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.
