    Go for a popular graphic, all while showing off your sorority. A classic smiley will look great in the center of the crew, surrounded by the established date and sorority. You can also go for a lightning bolt or stars for an edgier look! Make it a little retro with a rocker font, or stay modern with a simple all-caps.


    Stick with just words - but add all the colors! A mix of eye-catching shades and light pastels will really pop on this neutral sweatshirt. Add a bold bubbly font for a more retro look, giving all the groovy vibes. You can also add your chapter name or established date below, making this a unique Founder's Day look!

    You're in college, so you might as well dress like it, right? A classic collegiate font or retro feel will make this tan crew timeless. It's a perfect basic for New Members or to pass down to your little!


    Go super simple with all-caps arched across the front, showing off your sorority or chapter nickname. Add a thin outline to make this basic font pop even more. To make it shine while staying timeless, go for dark reds, blues, and greens. You can also go for your school colors for cute Gameday PR!


    Go even more retro with a bubbly font or curly cursive. Add a banner attached or bold underline to complete the graphic design. A thin outline will make the name pop even more, and include all yout sorority colors! Finally, you can add your chapter name or established date to make it even more personalized.


    Vintage Love


    You can't make a vintage sweatshirt that's also new, but you sure can design one that gives off those vibes! The light tan sweatshirt is perfect for a distressed design, no matter the color. A subtle choice, but it's all in the details, right??


    Keep it safe with just your sorority name or established date across the front. Since the crew is a light tan color, a bright white or solid black will keep with the simple vintage look. Fonts is where you can really have some fun! Go bold with a distressed drop shadow, or stay classic with curly cursive.


    You can add graphics to make it more fun, either staying trendy or to go with your school mascot! A bold tiger, lion, bear, oh my!

    For Fall/Winter, jeans aand leggings should be the go-to for sure. Dress it up with high waisted jeans, booties, and a flat-brimmed hat for a cozy dinner with friends. Keep it loose with an oversized look, or do a front tuck to show off the high waisted jeans! If you want a cropped look but don't want to commit to the chop, tuck the entire hem into your bralette! Super easy hack that can be used easily for this thin crew :)


    Since this crew isn't super thick, it's perfect for some good old fashioned layering!
