A sweet reader emailed me last week and shared that she is going through sorority recruitment when the new spring semester begins at her college in a couple weeks. My university held Formal Recruitment for our Panhellenic sororities in the fall every year, which I think is common of most colleges, however there are many schools that still choose to hold their recruitments in the second semester! Dressing for winter recruitment can be very different that fall recruitment, as both the weather and current trends can vary a lot over just a few months. I wanted to share today just a few outfit ideas that I think would be ideal for some of the different recruitment rounds in the winter season.
For some of the earlier rounds, a really cute look would be to wear a button up shirt or printed blouse paired with a winter-appropriate skirt and tights! The black pleated one that I shared above might be a little bit too dark for fall recruitment, but it's perfect for a winter wardrobe (and very chic and on trend!). Y'all know that I'm all about my Lilly Pulitzer... two of the three looks that I actually wore for my own sorority recruitment were Lilly! While winter isn't the season for Lilly dresses, if you are a Lilly fan it could be a great time to wear an Elsa top with a skirt or dress pants.
And below, I'm sharing some fun dress picks that I found! Some are more casual and some are more formal- as the sorority recruitment rounds go on towards Preference round, your attire will get more dressy.
Did any of you attend universities that held Winter Formal Recruitment? I can't believe that it's already been over six months since I've been finished with being a collegiate member of Alpha Delta Pi! To my college readers: enjoy the memories- it sounds cliche, but it really does go by fast!
