Sorority Style Showdown Round 1: Kappa VS Pi Phi


 


Spring is here and we're kicking off our second annual Sorority Style Showdown! This fun and fashion-filled contest features 2 great looks pulled from Swank and styled and modeled by a team from each the sororities. Each participating house will be going head to head against one other house each week to win $$ for their philanthropy and discounts for their entire house for a week! 
(No pressure, right?!)

We asked each house to provide a styling team of 2-3 girls and a model and then they were let loose to play dress-up in Swank for a few hours! We want to thank the ladies of Pi Beta Phi and Kappa Kappa Gamma for enthusiastically volunteering for the first round. We had so much fun watching these ladies pulling items and getting their looks put together--it was hard not to jump in and play too!

Each house is competing to win a $200 check to benefit their deserving literacy-based philanthropies--Pi Phi is championing for the Read. Believe. Achieve and Kappa Kappa Gamma is representing Reading Is Fundamental. 

In addition to helping to raise money and awareness for a such good causes,  the winning house gets 20% off all purchases for every member of their house, good for one week! 
(Pretty sweet rewards, if you ask us!!)

If you and your organization would like to participate, please contact Madison(at)swankboutiqueonline.com for more details.  


    


Now for the clothes:

Both teams went for one of this Winter's hottest colors--port. Or burgundy. Or wine. Maybe cabernet? Anyone else getting thirsty? Anyway, back to the clothes! Interestingly, both sorority teams also opted to incorporate one of this Summer's strongest trends--western accents, yet both did so in strikingly different ways. 

Kappa tucked the Diego Fringe Cami by Rory Beca into the Free People Piece Out Suede Mini Skirt and kept the duo from feeling too western by pairing them with our chunky black Cove Booties and edgy Five + Two Quartz Choker. **This season don't be afraid to layer a choker and a lariat or other longer necklace! As the weather gets warmer, it's all about the delicate statement layers, whether on your fingers or neck, stack on the layers and glam up the heat!

Pi Phi went for a more sophisticated, edgy look, pairing the Finders Keepers City Lights Crop with our High Waisted Vegan Leather Pencil Skirt and layering on the Class Act Vest before adding the accessories--our Wide Brim Hat in Black + Lovestrength Fulman Hat Band, Samantha Wills Howlite Bardot Ring, Tess + Tricia Silver Luna Layering Necklace, and Jeffrey Campbell Burke Heels. This skirt is a no brainer at just $38--you can take it from day to night with the drop of a vest! See what we did there? The Bardot Ring is a signature style of Samantha Wills and is one of our buyer's favorite statement cocktail rings for everyday and if you're like us, you're basically obsessed with marble everything!

Also, if you haven't gotten our Jeffrey Campbell Burke Heel before, get it now. Before it's gone. Again. We try to warn everyone but inevitably, as soon as we are sold out three people call looking for them! Don't miss out and be that person! We hate having to break hearts!!
