I’d love to hear from you too, so please let me know if there’s anything you want to see covered. We’re here to make your life easier. Pref day is the day before an exam, and it can be one of the scariest days in your life. It’s a time when you’re trying to prepare yourself mentally and physically for an exam that’s going to test your knowledge, focus, and confidence—and if you’ve ever been there before, you know that it doesn’t always go as planned. Luckily for us (and for you!), we’ve got some tips on what to wear on pref day that will help you feel more prepared and confident about the big test ahead.

What to Wear on Pref Day

The day of your interview is finally here, and you’re probably feeling a little nervous. You’ve been preparing for this moment for weeks, maybe even months. Now, it’s time to show the hiring managers at your dream company what you’ve got!

But hold on—how do you dress for success on pref day?

I know that when you’re in the middle of it all, it can seem like dressing for work is just another thing on your plate. But it doesn’t have to be. If you get this right, everything else will fall into place.

It’s not about what everyone else is doing—it’s about what works best for YOU. And that’s why I’m here! I’ll help you find your personal style, so you can feel confident going into every meeting, presentation, or team discussion with a sense of ease and style that says “I’m ready.”

Pref is the most formal round. All the guides are saying to wear a cocktail dress. We recommend that you wear something a little more formal than the rest of the rounds. Do not wear anything too tight.


  • Dresses.
  • Jumpsuits — Super fun and flattering, a great way to stand out.
  • Heels.

Have you looked at your college’s Panhellenic website?

Did it give you a plan for getting a bid?

Did it tell you how to answer the members’ questions?

Did it tell you what the members are looking for in a new member?

Many of these websites give FACTUAL information. This lack of information leaves many potential new members feeling behind on preparing for sorority recruitment, missing important information, having a disadvantage. Can you relate?

If you feel overwhelmed or behind, you want to watch this video. In the video, I give you 3 secrets to stand out, have options, and run home to your dream sorority.

Do not let a certain look sway you from wearing what you are most confident in! Also, show off your style.

I recommend that you start in your closet. See what you already have. Then if you are still missing pieces, go out to buy them. These outfits are for inspiration.


Potential new members during this round usually wear:






Sandals — I am loving the Flatform trendy — you can also wear fun tennis shoes. No running shoes or shoes you would play a sport in. I have a ton of looks on my Pinterest page.

Since this round is so long, it is a good idea to wear flats or comfortable shoes.

As you move through the rounds, they get more formal. The overall vibe for this round is brunch with your friends. Do not get worried about overdressing. It is better to be overdressed than underdressed.

This round is still rather long, so make sure you have comfortable shoes.

Potential new members usually wear:




Sandals OR you could even go for heels

Round Three is a little nicer than Round Two. Keep thinking like brunch with your friends when you are picking out your outfits for this round.

Read all about Round Three HERE.

Potential new members usually wear:


Some sort of heels or wedges

Pref is the most formal round. All the guides are saying to wear a cocktail dress. We recommend that you wear something a little more formal than the rest of the rounds.

Do not wear anything too tight.

Do not wear heels TOO high.

Do not show too much cleavage.

Some colleges have recommended colors to wear. Make sure to do your research before you get to sorority recruitment. For example, most potential new members going through sorority recruitment at UGA wear black during Pref Round.

Potential new members for this round wear:


Jumpsuits — Super fun and flattering, a great way to stand out




It’s the final day Of Greek Week here on my blog and we’re wrapping up my “What To Wear” series with ten outfit ideas for Preference round of sorority recruitment. If you missed my ten outfit ideas for Open House round click here, and my ten outfit ideas for Sisterhood round click here.

As always, my goal is to provide as much outfit inspiration as possible while sharing styles that are realistic + affordable. A majority of the items I’m styling in today’s post are rather new (with the exception of my jewlery + a few other pieces) and can be shopped directly through the product images/links below.


As I mentioned the last couple of days, for the sake of there being so many different outfits, I took these photos old school, #mirrorselfie style. I hope you don’t mind—I just knew 30 outfits over the span of three days was too much to ask of Madison, lol.

Anyway, here are ten outfit ideas that are perfect for Preference round of sorority recruitment. Please keep in mind that every school’s dress code is a little different so what works for me, may need to be modified a bit to work for you! If you go to Kent State the suggested outfit guidelines are: cocktail style, dresses, maxis, two-piece sets, rompers, heels.

This is the round that you’ll be (hopefully) sealing the deal so make sure you’re wearing something you’re comfortable and confident in. Put that best foot forward, girl!

10 Outfit Ideas For Preference Round

For my own Preference round, I wore a white lace long sleeve dress and heels. I figured I would throw this look into the mix because it’s right along those lines. Shockingly enough, this was actually the dress I wore for my high school graduation! It’s older from ShowPo but still a favorite of mine with the lace-up detailing along the back and ruffled hem.

To pair with the lace-up back of the dress, I felt a pair of white lace-up heels would go perfectly. I love coordination like this. I’m wearing my “triple threat” jewelry with this look— a dainty gold necklace, gold statement earrings, and my favorite cuff. This look is a classic!

Sorority recruitment is all about showing who you are as a person and letting your personality really shine through. This is ultimately how you’re going to meet girls with similar interests and find your home away from home. Let your outfits speak for themselves! if you’re a bit more laid-back, a bohemian two-piece set may be right up your alley!

I absolutely love the colors of this one. Although it’s a bit more casual it totally suits an easy-going personality. Most girls will be wearing heels however they aren’t required. If flat sandals like my white Palm Beach’s are more your vibe, stick with them!

This is the round to go out with a bang! I encourage you to make a bold statement with your outfit choice. This bright red screams confidence and will leave all eyes on you. While dresses are definitely the standard for this round, jumpsuits are totally appropriate as well. Plus, if you’re rushing a bit later in the fall, chances are it’s going to be a bit chillier and you’ll be thanking yourself for having pants on.

Plus, this one has pockets which is even better! I’m pairing it with simple gold block heels—this two-inch height is going to be your best friend if you’re not used to wearing heels for long periods of time. Popping on some glittery star earrings to complete my look.

If you’re not feeling the whole dress/jumpsuit thing, feel free to reach for a romper! This one screams “little black romper” and is the perfect option for this round of recruitment. It’s got the cutest open back and fun crochet detailing under the bust. Paired with some simple strappy sandals and a pair of gold hoops you’ve completed a classic look.

I wanted to throw another white dress option into the mix. Almost all of the chapters will have their members wearing white so keep that in mind if you decide to reach for this color; you will definitely mix in with them, lol. This dress has more of a sundress silhouette to it and has the cutest ties along the back of it.

I wanted to give this one a beachy feel so I popped on some straw wedges and a pair of crochet earrings. If you prefer a bohemian vibe, this outfit is the one for you!

Oh, how I love a little black dress, or a long black dress in this case! I actually wore this earlier this week for my 10K photos on Instagram. This dress is so effortlessly sexy. There are a few different ways to tie this dress but I have it wrapped around the back and then along the waist. I have this in the bodysuit, romper, and jumpsuit version so if you’re not sold on the maxi dress, you can totally find an option that better suits you.

I’ve got my classic gold jewels on with this look; both my earrings and cuff are old but they are still some of my most reached for pieces. Definitely check your local Walmart (the Time&Tru) line for the best $4 statement earrings. I highly recommend wearing a big pair of earrings; they will frame your face and draw attention to it!

If I were going through recruitment again, this is without a doubt the outfit I would wear. I cannot stress enough how important it is to express your personal style during recruitment! The girls recruiting you want to see you for who you are and more times than not an out-there outfit is going to be the one they compliment/talk about later on.

You also want to choose something that sparks meaningful conversation. For me, talking about my blog and the brand I’ve built is an easy conversation to have when I’m wearing something as bold as this pastel tulle dress and these boa fur heels. I definitely don’t recommend these shoes though if you’re new to wearing heels as they are very tall!

Outfit Details— dress: SheIn, heels: SheIn, earrings: SheIn, necklace: The Silver Heron

You can’t go wrong with a maxi dress! If this is more your style than a mini dress, don’t be afraid to reach for one. This is another dress with more of a bohemian feel. The off the shoulder, tiered ruffles, and smocked bust are all so cute. Not to mention, a dainty floral print never goes out of style! I’ve got this one on with just a flat pair of sandals.

If you have a color that really speaks to you, perhaps there’s a backstory to it like me with yellow or maybe it’s your secret weapon to feeling confident, go full-on monochrome with it! This linen dress is the perfect start.

I paired it with some chunky heels in the same color. These are some of my favorite heels as they’ve got a super thick wedge to them making them extremely comfortable if you’re going to be on your feet for long periods of time; in fact these were the heels I wore for my own Preference round. This look screams happy thoughts!

Outfit Details— dress: SheIn, heels: SheIn, earrings: South Moon Under, necklace: The Silver Heron, cuff: Target

I could not love this maxi dress more. It’s definitely not everyone’s style but it’s got such a unique color palette with the most gorgeous pleats. It’s super wide with lots of fabric making it move like an absolute dream. I could twirl in this for days.

You can’t see them, but my yellow block heels match to a tee and my tassel earrings are the perfect finishing touch. This outfit will surely get you lots of looks so make sure you’ve got the confidence to go along with it!

What to Wear on Princess Cruise Formal Night

Whether you’re a seasoned cruiser or a first-time traveler, there’s no question about it: Princess Cruises is one of the best cruise lines in the world. They’ve got an impressive collection of ships, from the intimate to the extravagant, and they offer so many different itineraries that you can find a trip that fits your needs. And while they have plenty of options for families with kids, they also offer great adventures for adults only.

One of the most exciting things about Princess Cruises is their formal night—a chance for everyone on board to dress up in their finest attire and celebrate together as a community. But what should you wear?

We’ve got some tips from our own experience as well as from our friends at Princess Cruises themselves so you can look your best when it comes time for your formal evening!

We all know that Princess Cruises are the most elegant, refined way to travel. And what better way to show off your swankiness than by dressing up in your finest duds for formal night?

But what should you wear? And where do you start? Don’t worry! We’re here to help with a few suggestions on how to look your best while sailing the high seas.

During your cruise, you should dress the same way you would do ashore. Leisure wear such as shorts and t-shirts is appropriate on board and on shore excursions in a warm climate. Depending on your itinerary, we advise you to bring sweaters and jackets for chilly evenings.

Keep in mind that it could rain and that you need correct clothing for visits to religious sites. On deck, sandals with rubber soles and sneakers are ideal.
