For those of you who don’t go to schools quite as “fratty” as Emory, you might not be aware of just how hardcore some people dress for themed frat parties. While most people get into the theme a little and will wear a few themed accessories here and there, every year there are certain brave (and naïve) freshmen girls who literally transform themselves in the name of the themed party (however humiliating the theme might be). Believe it or not…last year at Emory, my friends and I were those girls.
Themed frat parties are a great excuse for crazy clothes, hair, makeup, and accessories! Check out some of my favorite themed party looks from last year!
Toga, Toga, Toga! My friend and I spent hours on our togas only to lose them five minutes into the party, leaving us with nothing but our bandeaus and bandage skirts. Major party foul!
Pajama party! There was nothing better than walking to the frat in furry Ugg slippers rather than in our usual sky high heels. (Not sure why I’m not in the group pic, but there I am in the elevator!)
Corporate hoes and CEO’s! This was not my favorite theme, mostly because I ain’t no hoe and I don’t like business-casual attire, but my sister was visiting so I got into it! Even though SHE didn’t, such a UMiami girl!
It looks like we wore those outfits to a Devil and Angel themed party, but we were actually at an all white themed party! We just heard that another frat was having a Devil and Angel party that night, so we pretended we came to the all white party straight from the other frat. Oopsie! We felt a tad uncomfortable, but we rocked it!
Ah, the red light district party. Not even going to beat around the bush, we all really looked like prostitutes. Kind of embarrassing looking back, but me and my friend shopping for those garters in an Atlanta sex shop is something I will never forget!
Yay, Christmas! Holiday themed parties are always fun! Also the irony of us leaving Chabad and going straight to CVS to buy those Santa hats is not lost on me! (BTW, I’m aware of how odd my facial expression is in this pic!)
The trailer trash bash! I had so much fun rocking my cross necklace, hoop earrings, pigtails, and bright blue eyeshadow. Not to mention the scrunchies, white wifebeater, and jean shorts! Everyone killed it that night, so much fun!
Use themed parties as a chance to wear something you would never wear before (or again), and make sure to take LOTS of pictures!
