Do you really wanna set the stage on fire next time you enter but don’t know what to wear to a frat party? Lemme help!
If you’re anything like me, you love a good party, be it clubbing, sorority or frat. And while I’m not in college anymore (thanks to the universe who made my graduation possible this year, lol), I would give anything to enjoy a good frat party. After all, they’re a great opportunity to let loose and have some fun.
I highly highly recommend to every single person to go to a frat party at least once in your college life. It’s just the perfect way to connect with people and have the time of your life. Adulting is no fun; college parties are!
But if you’re not careful, they can also be a great opportunity to make a fashion faux pas and invite unnecessary attention. That’s why I’ve put together a list of the cutest yet sassy frat party outfits, do’s and don’ts, and top frat party essentials you need in your closet.
So whether you’re hitting up a party at your own fraternity (btw, here are all the fun reasons to join a fraternity!) or sorority house or you’re crashing one at another school, make sure you bring your A-game!
Do’s and don’ts of what to wear to a frat party
As someone who’s been to her fair share of frat parties, I can tell you that there are a few Dos and Don’ts when it comes to what to wear. First and foremost, you want to make sure you’re comfortable.
You’re going to be dancing and mingling all night, so you don’t want to be weighed down by uncomfortable clothing. And the last thing you want is to be tugging at your clothes all night or having wardrobe malfunctions.
Secondly, you want to make sure your outfit is party-appropriate. This means no pantsuits or formal gowns, obviously. Third, you want to make sure your outfit is flattering. There’s nothing worse than feeling self-conscious all night because you do not like the way you look.
Fourth, I would not suggest you to wear anything too revealing. It’s not like I’m against it, but just to be safe and comfy. You want to strike the perfect balance between sexy and classy. A good rule of thumb is to avoid anything that’s too short, tight, or low-cut. You don’t want to be the girl who’s constantly pulling down her skirt or adjusting her top all night long.
Also, you need not spend a huge chunk of money on clothes, they are of no use. Shein, H&M, and Forever 21 are your best friends.
And lastly, have fun with your outfit! A frat party is a perfect opportunity to experiment with new trends and fashion trends.
top frat party essentials you need in your closet
I’ll keep this short.
1) A tank top or crop top: There’s no denying that it gets hot when you’re dancing the night away. So make sure you wear something that will keep you cool and won’t make you sweat through your shirt. Also, they are so versatile and make super cute outfit ideas.
2) A good pair of jeans/shorts: I cannot stress how important a good pair of jeans is. They go with everything. They style down the outfit real quick and make them look chic yet appropriate. And shorts, on the other hand, are again the perfect way to look cute as well as stay cool.
3) Staying Hydrated: You’ll understand the importance of this only after landing up at a frat party. I mean, after dancing your butt off, alcohol is not the way to get through the night, lol. I wish it was! So bring a small water bottle along, not the heavy one, though. You’ll thank yourself the next day when you don’t have a hangover.
4) Comfortable shoes: You might be tempted to wear those sky-high heels that are currently all the rage. But trust me, your feet will thank you if you stick with something more comfortable. After all, there’s nothing worse than having to take your heels off halfway through the party and stepping on a floor filled with god knows what! Flats or sandals are also a good choice.
5) A pair of sneakers: As much as you want to wear heels, please stick to sneakers or converse. You have no idea what frat floors are filled with, water, alcohol, broken bottle glass, sand, and everything on the face of the earth. It’s a mess, and you will seriously thank me!
