How To Represent Your Sorority In Style



Those who have been following TCB for a while may remember that I was in a sorority in college! Although I graduated, I still like to support my sorority by rocking my letters, however out in the post-grad world, it isn't always acceptable to rock head-to-toe greek letters. A sorority's letters are a source of pride for many girls, because they often represent your and your sisterhood's values. They're something to be respected and should be worn in a way that makes you proud! Well, at least you should think this way after you graduate, before that you can wear them in practically any way as long as you're doing good PR for your sisterhood!

 There are so many pieces in my closet with Alpha Gamma Delta's (my sorority!) letters on them including everything from t-shirts (LOTS of t-shirts), hats, mugs, hair ties, etc. I love to try to incorporate these items into my wardrobe tastefully as possible without looking like I am desperately clinging on to my college years. 😂  I wanted to share a few of my tips for all you college girls and grads on how to wear your sorority gear with style!




Custom Sorority Hat c/o Greek U | Plaid Top: Old Navy | Jeans: Old Navy | Scarf: Old, Similar | Purse: Target | Booties: Old, Similar | Cat Ring: Not Available Online, Similar |

Let's start with my best piece of overall advice: Only wear one item at a time! I know in school it's totally fine to wear a tank with letters underneath a greek letter sweatshirt and even a pair of sweatpants with your letters, and I hate to break it to you, but most people might look at you like you're crazy if you dress like that outside of campus. In order to not look like a crazy sorority obsessed person, I recommend wearing one statement piece in an outfit. That could mean a hat, a shirt, a tote, anything! The only exception for this rule is jewelry. I think it's completely fine to wear a ring, a necklace and a bracelet with your letters on them all at the same time, even along with your other designated 'statement' piece. (As long as they aren't completely obnoxious!) If you're looking for some great jewelry options, I'm loving this ring and this necklace from GreekU, so classic!

I also know a lot of girls who didn't always like to represent their sorority with their clothes and accessories, but showed their pride in other ways. Always on the go and needing coffee? Grab a tumbler with your letters on it! Don't like anything too flashy, but still want to show off your letters on campus everyday? Add subtle letters to your backpack! Think about incorporating your sorority into your everyday life in different ways. My favorite way to do this is by using a phone case with my letters. 

My last piece of advice for staying fashionable while representing your greek allegiance is simple, go with the trends. Although t-shirts are probably my least favorite stylish way to rep Alpha Gam, I have so many of them that it would be pure waste to never wear them. Now don't get me wrong, I think there are so many great looking sorority t-shirts out there, however pairing them with sweatpants, leggings, and moccasins isn't exactly fashionable. I think wearing a cute sorority top tucked into a trendy button up skirt or distressed denim with a great pair of boots creates a great outfit. Much better than the "I just threw this on because it was comfortable" look that I saw all the time on my college campus.

If you're looking for a great place to stock up on some great greek apparel and accessories, GreekU is definitely the place to go!

Were you in a sorority during college? What are your favorite ways to wear your sorority letters?

  2. What good tips Sami!! My job is super casual so I still wear my ADPi sweatshirts and tshirts for weekend shifts, but when I dress more business casual I have a couple ADPi rings that add a special touch to an outfit. :)

  12. If you do it right, being a sorority woman is a lifetime commitment! I initiated with Kappa Kappa Gamma in 2006, and now I'm the Public Relations Specialist for two districts. I love being so involved with Kappa! Greek U has super-cute stuff--they sent me a floral tee with my letters on it. It's sooooo soft!
