What to Wear for Each Round of Rush in 2022

• • •

Rush week with sorority sisters on the prowl for new pledges can be a jungle, and you need to get prepared. What you wear during this week matters a lot, especially since the girls can’t get to know everything about you in such a short amount of time. Let Blu Spero guide you in the right direction with our great selection for Rush Week!


Open House

For round one, "Open House," also known as "ice water," you’ll be visiting all sorority houses over two days. That means we’ve got twice the shopping to do! The welcome round, or “Ice Water,” is a bit dressy, but you DEF wanna stay comfy too! So think along the lines of what you’d wear on a fun date.

You can stick with a skirt, flowy shorts, venture out with decorative pants, or take one step forward in one of our casual summer dresses. One of our trendy white dresses with puff sleeves would be perfect in this summer heat! You don't have to wear heels or wedges for this round, but you totally can if you want!


Philanthropy Day

Service Day is for learning about the sorority’s philanthropy. Sometimes you will do crafts, and other times you will hear about the charity. The round is the most laid-back outfit day. You may receive a recruitment T-shirt for this round, which you can accessorize however you choose. You can pair the T-shirt with a pair of trendy jeansfun pants, a skirt, or appropriate-length shorts. 

If you don’t receive a shirt, you get to select your entire look! You’ll want to dress like you’re going to church or a first date, but don’t go overboard with the dress and heels just yet. We recommend comfy flats, sandals, or cute sneakers during ice water since you’ll be on your feet the entire time.

Round 3


This round is when you’ll see each sorority’s recruitment video, and you may also take a tour of the sorority house. Sisterhood is dressier than Ice Water but not quite as formal as Preference (Round 4). For this outfit, you should think of something you would wear to a birthday dinner or brunch.

Our curated collection of Sisterhood round dresses are PERF for this event! You can wear or dressy casual dress or a maxi dressWedges and platforms can be great picks during Sisterhood!

Round 4

Preference Night

This round is your final chance to talk to your remaining sororities before bid day. By this point, you’ll usually talk to someone you’ve already spoken with during a previous round. This round is your chance to emphasize your interest in the chapter and prove why you would be a great fit while also continuing to connect with your sorority girl. You can never go wrong with a classic white dress or a sassy black dress if you want to dress to impress! But you can also emphasize the FUN in your wardrobe with bright colors like a blue, purple, or pink dress! It's up to you!

Since preference night is the most serious and formal of the rounds, save your best look for last. Think cocktail dresses that you might sport for a family wedding for sorority rush, and again, let your style peek through! And lightweight is the PERF pref dress for the night.
