    What's the Vibe?

     

    OKAY, so we know all about the types of tees - now what designs would look best and how should you still it?? We've separated these budget-friendly tshirts into colored sections, mixing the shirt styles together. But don't worry - if you want a certain style listed above, we'll make it happen! This is just to let you know what Recruitment color schemes will look AMAZING on your fav style :)

     

    Bright on White

     

    We have to start out with a classic. When in doubt, a simple white tee is the safe go-to. It can be styled with almost anything, your chapter will love it, and it can handle any design! That's the beauty of the plain white tee ... the options are literally endless.

     

    Each recruitment style on a budget comes in white, so you only have to worry about what design you're going to go with! The best thing to compliment a white tshirt is BRIGHT and BOLD. Fun graphics, neon accents, and unique fonts will make your sisterhood stand out from the rest. For Welcome and Philanthropy round, keep it simple with your sorority name and/or philanthropy name. You can spice it up with multicolored letters, small graphics, or a mix of different fonts! A Colorful Recruitment is the way to go!!

     

    You can go WAY out of the box with unique designs, like a sunshine, cherries, or lightning bolt, to name a few. Match the bright energy with bold colors and fonts, making sure everyone remembers your sorority letters during Recruitment! You can also break the mold with a quote, like "She is Strong" or "Vibrant Women." This could be a tie in to your Philanthropy, Sisterhood, or just to show that you'll about about that girl power!!

     

    The bright colors on a white short sleeve will give off all the fun Recruitment energy you're looking for! Since all these styles are lightweight and breathable, the light colored fabric will keep your sisters even more cool. Style with light wash jeans and sneakers for a more casual look, keeping the hair and jewelry simple. If you want the outfit to match the vibrant vibes of the design, go for a bright skirt, sandals, and colorful hair clips! Fun accessories like that will make everyone excited to visit y'all during Recruitment!

     


    Colorful

     

    If you want some color, don't shy away from it! These affordable styles come in SO many different shades to fit any Recruitment color scheme. From dark blues to bright pinks, these styles can basically do it all. We have some color options shown below, but that's just the beginning!! There are many other budget-friendly options for you to choose from :)

     

    If you go with a bold tshirt color, you can keep it safe and simple with the design. White and pastels look great on colorful shirts and won't look overwhelming. Keep the front plain, having your sorority name or philanthropy motto across the front. You can add a little bit of ~spice~ with a smiley face, heart, or mix of fonts. These classic designs are great for Philanthropy or Welcome rounds!

     

    If you want all the color possible, there's a way to do it without being too much! Detailed designs with mutliple shades will pop on a more muted tone, like a mauve or deep purple. Make sure to go for complimentary colors to keep the design looking like it belongs on the shirt. If you want a rainbow effect, a sherbet orange colored tee might be the perfect thing! This is especially fun for a Recruitment event in warmer months, bringing the sunshine inside!

     

    With colorful tshirts, it's best to keep the bottoms simple and plain. High waisted jeans or a white skirt are perfect options that your sisters probably already own and love to wear! Neutral sandals will keep with the classic vibes, but accessories is where you can really bring some more color. Add vibrant hair clips or a headband that matches one of the colors on the shirt. You can also add bold earrings or necklace for an unforgettable look!

     


    Pastel

     

    Keep it soft with sweet pastelsthis Recruitment season! All the styles come in unique light styles, likeBanana Cream, Light Pink, or Dusty Blue! These (and all the other pastels) are great options for a Sisterhood or Philanthropy round tee. Like the colorful tees, we have some of the colors shown below. Reach out to learn ALL the color options - seriously, there's SO many! Staying on a budget doesn't mean losing trendy Recruitment options :)

     

    You can keep the soft style simple and sweet with plain fonts and small graphics. A heart, lighning bolt, or smiley face are great additions to add some more color to this understated tee. You can also go with a basic white font, or choose a color a few shades darker than the tshirt color. Add some details with a floral design or rainbow look! The thin detailing on the floral bouquet will make you tee look Boho and sweet, perfect for a Sisterhood tee. The pastel rainbow look will add some extra fun colors, making accessorizing even more fun!

     

    Make it a little more bold by pairing the pastel tshirt with bright neon colors! This adds a fun retro look to your shirt, especially if you choose a bubbly cursive or airbrush font. You can also go with a gradient look, choosing multiple shades of pink for a baby pink tshirt. Small details like a thin outline, starburts, or drop shadows will really make yourpastel design stand out from the others!

     

    Since this color scheme is both colorful and simple, you can go multiple ways when it comes to styling. If you go with plain fonts and neutral colors, add a freshness with white bottoms and tan sandals. This will make your chapter look bright and new, especially with a floral hair scarf or dangly jewelry! If you went with more vibrant designs, keep it simple with high waisted jeans and sneakers. Add some more color with butterfly clips and bubble braids, depending on how bold you tee is. When in doubt, go for fun hair clips and simple jewelry!

     


    Neutrals

     

    Finally, keep it chill withNeutrals! You can achieve this easy look with a basic white shirt, Soft Cream, Mushroom, or Citron ... to name a few. Go classic with black and white, letting the design speak for itself. You can also go more earthy with light browns, tans, and soft pastels. Whatever look you're going for, these budget friendly styles can make your dreams come true. The lightweight feel and different color options make the choice easy!

     

    Keep it clean and plain with a white short sleeve and single colorfont. Your sorority name across the front is the perfect simple look for Welcome or Sisterhood round! It also makes the accessorizing options endless, letting each sister make it their own! Choose black with a more intense font to get an edgier look this Recruitment season. A gothic font or bold all-caps is perfect for that vibe and is still trendy. Add small graphics with stars or roses to complete the look.

     

    Go more earthy with warm neutrals and retro fonts. A bubbly font across the front will give all the Boho vibes, especially with alternating colors that fit in the neutral scheme. Go for literal Earthy vibes with potted plants, greenery, and flowers. These graphics add some more color will still remaining neutral. Soft colors like terracotta, olive green, and light blue are great additives for a soft look. You can also add brighter pastels to a neutral tee, allowing for a pop of color in this chill color scheme.

     

    For accessorizing, it's all about what vibe you're going for. Black jeans, booties, and silver jewelry are great for a simple black and white tee. Add star-shaped earrings and a bold belt to make you chapter look INCREDIBLE. You can also go with high waisted jeans and sneakers for a more casual, retro feel. If you want more earth-toned neutral, white bottoms and tan sandals are an easy go-to. Accessorize with a floral hair scarf or gold headband to keep it fun.
