The Arkansas Recruitment Outfit Guide
Hey, guys!! So since recruitment season is almost upon us, I thought it would be a great idea to give y’all a clue into what people wear during Arkansas sorority recruitment! Every single year like I mentioned in the post of 11 Things To Know About Arkansas Recruitment Greek Life provides t-shirts of different colors for Potential New Members (PNMs) to wear each day except for the last day which is Preference Night (Pref Night).
The one thing that I really wanted to do when I was going through recruitment was to wear something with the t-shirt that made me stand out just a little bit from everyone else going through recruitment. I wanted the outfit to express my personality and not just be another pink t-shirt. To do that I did a couple of things!
- Wear cute shoes. I love having cute and comfortable sandals and when you are walking the hills all day comfort is a must! Cute shoes are also a great conversation starter to help break the ice so it actually helped me out the first day to have something to talk about!
- Wearing a functional bottom. DO NOT WHERE JEANS YOU WILL DIE!! Arkansas is so so hot and humid so please don’t wear pants unless your hatred for your thighs is seriously that awful. I wore some cute shorts with an elastic waist in case the heat made me swell up, or I wore just my favorite jean shorts. Beware though I wouldn’t wear the high waisted cheek showing shorts that you wore to the lake all summer. We won’t judge you for it but it jus really isn’t the place… and to be honest you don’t want your first impression that they have of you to be that they could see your butt the whole time you were walking around the house. You want then to remember that you had a 4.0 in high school and have a heart of gold.
- Jewels!!! WOO!! I LOVE jewelry. It is actually a problem at times trying to store it all, but that is beside the point. Wear a cute pair of earrings or a simple dainty necklace just to add a little pop to your outfit, once again this can be a great conversation starter!
- Pref Night: Wear a cocktail dress but go for the one that you would wear if you were going to a nice wedding. Once again, please don’t let me see your bootay! Oh and opt for wedges if you are dying to wear heels that day. Your feet will thank you later!
As always be true to yourself and what you would normally wear outside of recruitment. If you only wear Nike shorts and Converse, then do that the whole week we totally get it! If you don’t usually wear makeup, (good for you that’s awesome) then stay that way all week long. Truthfully the girls of the houses just want to get to know you and what makes you, well you!
I hope this has helped just at least one person. I know when I was about to go through recruitment I was a nervous wreck and had no guidance what so ever!
