Eliza J Eyelet Lace Shift Dress

Eliza J Eyelet Lace Shift Dress For my sorority’s initiation, I decided to go more conservative because it was a really serious event. You don’t have to though – just don’t wear something that you would wear to go clubbing. This is one of my favorite dresses for sorority initiation. The details are cute and the outfit doesn’t require any accessorizing. Plus, the neckline is high enough that you don’t have to worry about any pulling or tugging during the ceremony.


This eyelet lace shift dress from Eliza J embodies grace with a touch of whimsy. Eyelet fabric is always a good choice for those looking for something feminine but not over-the-top. Its simplicity also gives you a canvas to play with a variety of shoe choices – whether you prefer flats or a modest heel. The silhouette is flattering for numerous body types, gently skimming the body without clinging too closely – which is perfect for the mix of solemnity and celebration at your initiation. It’s a style that respects the occasion’s formality while allowing your personal taste to shine through.

Pearl Embellished Fit & Flare Dress

Pearl Embellished Fit & Flare Dress I don’t know if I am pushing it, but this cream dress is too lovely to not include! You should check with some sisters and see if this dress would be acceptable. Some might think that it is too embellished or that the color is wrong. I know during my initiation, some girls in my pledge class were wearing cream-colored dresses, so it’s probably not that big of a deal. This dress would be something that I would wear to our next initiation ceremony!


Strapless Floral Embroidered Dress

Strapless Floral Embroidered Dress I know what some of you might be thinking: it looks like a prom dress! But truth be told, sorority girls treat everything like it’s prom. I’m not joking! If you feel like you might be out of place with this dress, try asking girls in your pledge class what dresses they are wearing. That way you won’t be the only one rocking a fabulous rosette dress!

Most sororities have all sisters and future sisters wear white during initiation. This is because white is a very pure color.
