Especially for more casual recruitment events and activities, a playsuit like a jumpsuit or a romper can make for a cute one-piece outfit choice. These all-in-one outfits are an easy way to look great while visiting houses during Open House. And they pair well with more comfy shoes if you’re on a large campus and will have lots of walking to do from house to house. What’s more, a playsuit without too much going on on top, ones without ruffles or lots of extra detailing, can work well as a base outfit on Bid Day – perfecting for layering a t-shirt from your new sorority on top.

For many rush events, a mini dress will often be the classic option. Especially for dressier recruitment events like Preference Night, a ruched mini dress can be an excellent way to look dressy and stylish without looking too formal and overly dressed.

As the last chance to make an impression, consider ruched dresses that also let your personal style shine through a bit. At the same time, a good rule of thumb would be to avoid anything that might be too distracting, pieces that feature things like too many sequins or feathers or are overly sparkly.

Keeping these tips in mind, monochromatic dresses can be an excellent option for ruched dresses here. They can provide a balance with the choice of letting accessories like jewelry or statement heels show off your style.

At the dressier end of the spectrum, the Singles Night Mini Dress is a ruched bodycon mini dress in a neutral color, nude with black mesh. It features a sexy v-neck while its ruched body can make for an ultra-flattering option for all sizes and body types.

Monochromatic but with all romantic vibes, the Cotton Candy Pink Mini Dress features elegant embroidered detailing. Its long sleeves are finished with smocked cuffs, while its mock neck features a crochet trim. The bodice has sheer crochet lace accents that gather to a fitted waist before opening out to a flirty and ruffled hem A-line mini skirt.

If dresses aren’t so much your thing, consider dressier rompers or jumpsuits for your more formal recruitment events. A chic playsuit can be a fantastic, stylish alternative to the cocktail dress. For example, the Green Goddess Jumpsuit features a plunging surplice bodice with a high, banded waist. In addition, it combines billowy wide-leg pants with a draped front for an elegant non-dress option.
