Last year, #BamaRush took over TikTok. Perky and chipper Southern girls hoping to get into their preferred sorority showed off their affordable outfit of the day (#OOTD) looks, and it became a viral sensation.
The internet was captivated by many viewers learning that the sorority recruitment process was called “Rush Week.” Emotions ran high, a few quirky fashion trend-leaders emerged (we’re looking at you Pants Store), and drama ensued.
Missed out on #BamaRush last year? This video will get you up to speed.
Now, Bama Rush is back, and we’re seeing college students embrace pearls, minimalism, geometry, paperclip chains, and Y2K themes. Here’s a rundown of our favorite Rush-Week-inspired looks if you want to lean into embracing your inner sorority girl.
Miracle Heart Cuff
For some, getting into their preferred sorority can feel like a miracle. The Miracle Heart Cuff makes for a great statement piece to add to your collection. Stand out from the crowd with this youthful and whimsical bracelet.
The fashion girls are loving dainty minimal looks. The XOXO Necklace is a delicate handmade choker that just might feature the Greek letters of the sorority you most hope to land. Wear this ethical brass necklace with pride, knowing that when you purchase with PURPOSE, you’re helping to provide jobs to women escaping sex trafficking.
Summer may be ending soon, but there’s still time to embrace a beach-y southern style. Rush hard wearing these Desert Drop statement earrings. These best-seller earrings are teardrop shaped and hand-beaded by artisans.
We don’t see the pearl trend slowing down anytime soon. Our Baroque Hoops are a classic statement piece featuring 14k gold-plated hoops and baroque pearls. Greek life is all about philanthropy, and when you wear ethical jewelry, you can inspire your fellow sorority sisters to embrace their inner philanthropists as well.
Hugs & Kisses Earrings
We couldn’t forget this dainty duo! The Hugs & Kisses Earrings come from the same collection as the XOXO Necklace. These playful and youthful studs are perfect for everyday wear or for your next night out on the town.
Frolic Paperclip Necklace
For a simple, ethical, and on-trend Rush Week look, check out the Frolic Paperclip Necklace. This lightweight accessory can be worn alone or layered. Sorority girls have been embracing the stacked and layered jewelry trend for quite a while now, and you can’t go wrong with pairing this paperclip necklace with any other item in your jewelry collection.
The Halo Studs are the last accessory on our list. These delicate studs add a pop of shine to any well-coordinated outfit, and we know that no outfits are more well-coordinated than a hopeful sorority girl’s #OOTD looks. The Halo Studs are simple enough to wear every day and we especially love them paired with our Rise Studs.
Whether you’re currently a college student rushing to try to get into your dream sorority, or just captivated by this year’s Bama Rush drama, we wish you a happy Rush Week, and may all your Bid Day dreams come true.
