As your semester came to a close in May, we bet you packed much of your sorority and university apparel into boxes, loaded them into your car and have already forgotten about them. Well, bust open the cardboard and breakout your favorite letter tank and spirit jersey! Summer is here and Lillybee wants you to rock your campus swag all season long! Think of all the school and sorority spirit you embody on campus from August to May. Why not channel that colorful energy into the world all summer long?
Summer should certainly be filled with sandy toes, triangle bikinis and cut off shorts. Pair those summer staples with your school and sorority swag for a summer look that is sure to turn heads.
Suns out, guns out: This statement — tried and true — should be the anthem for your summer. Show off your newly bronzed biceps with your favorite sorority or university tank. Simply tuck your tank into a pair of high-waisted denim cut-offs for a perfect summer’s day outfit. Heading to the beach or laying by the pool? Ditch the denim and wear your over-sized tank as a cover-up for your swimsuit.
And because we don’t discriminate, suns out, buns out: Taking college campuses by storm, the spirit jersey is a trendy way to showcase your sorority or university. These oversized tops are often paired with leggings or jeans, but also couple fabulously with a bikini. The sleeves make this perfect for a breezy beach day and the slouchy fit make for a fashionable, yet effortless look. Pair with your favorite shades and hit the sand!
Hats off to summer: In addition to being your best friend when you’re having a bad hair day, baseball caps are a sunny summer day essential. Top your wet and wavy tresses with your university hat and head to the beach. Not only will your brimmed hat help protect your face from the sun, wearing a hat to the beach is a cute and sporty way to show school spirit and tame your windblown mane.
(Letter) Bag some rays: Show your sorority pride with your tote! Unload your textbooks and pack up your sunscreen. Your letter bag is great for carrying all your beach day essentials. If you’re looking to pack light, fanny packs are back. Strap on your sorority fanny to add a pop of color and throw-back style to your bathing suit.
Live it, Love it: Pair your favorite fitted sorority tee or trendy tank with a skirt for an outfit perfect for a day of shopping or an evening of dining and dancing. This look transforms your average sorority tops into wearable, everyday outfits. Style it up or dress it down, this look is versatile and blurs the line between your summer wardrobe and your sorority wardrobe.
Strut in Style: Whatever the warm weather occasion, your Lillybee shoes are a perfect way to showcase your school and sorority spirit. Amp up your sweet sundress with a pair of Lillybee wedges for a night out, or pair your white denim with a pair of our striped flats for a casual and comfortable daytime look. Lillybee flip flops are the perfect beach accessory; slip these sandals between your freshly painted toes and hit the sand. No matter the colors or occasion, be sure to show your stripes!
Bonus!: Wearing your university and sorority apparel is a great way to meet new people off campus throughout the summer. It’s a small world! Cliché, we know, but you never know who you may have unlikely connections with. Whether you make new friendships or not, representing your sorority or university with these summer styles is sure to make you look and feel fun, flirty, and fabulous.
