It’s officially sorority recruitment season for colleges and universities, which means young women around the country have been taking to TikTok to post all of their RushTok looks. This year, Taylor Swift‘s Eras Tour has not only influenced concertgoers’ outfit choices, but RushTok as well, with girls dressing up in Eras Tour-inspired outfits.
The fashion trend has gone viral all over TikTok as sororities gear up for “work week,” which takes place the week before formal recruitment and is when members practice everything from small talk, outfit preparation and more, according to Mashable.
To see the trend in action, TikTok user @alabamazta posted a montage video of the sorority members of Zeta Tau Alpha wearing their best Taylor Swift outfits, and it’s garnered almost 240,000 views — and counting!
Whether you’re a potential new member or a current member of a sorority still in need of a trendy, Swift-inspired recruitment dress, we’ve put together a roundup of Eras-inspired dresses to help you channel your inner pop star and prep for rounds. We even included a TikTok viral dress brand that’s taken over RushTok, which you can get a sneak peek of in user @kylie_jung‘s video here.
