The Shoes You Should be Wearing to Frat Parties

Recently I was stopped by a bouncer at a frat house who did not agree with my shoe choice of $300 Timberlands for the event. I believe his exact words were, “You’ll learn.” Inspired by his matter of fact comment, and a little scared, I decided to hit the blog to inform my girls.

First, let me make it clear that I have no interest in nabbing a guy at a frat. When I personally go to frat parties, I do not dress for the theme that they so strategically employ so that girls show up in the least amount of clothes possible, nor do I dress to try to impress one of the brothers. Seriously, I have bigger things to worry about. However, if you want to unleash your 2 sizes too small wardrobe mixed with your newfound interest in handcuffs plus your go to flirting lines of “I’m super flexible” and “my spirit animal is a cheetah” side then all the more power to you.

I am a firm believer that shoes do make the outfit, so in no way am I recommending that you swipe the nasty canvas sneakers that your boyfriend’s “cousin” just happened to have left so well hidden in his room last weekend. Wait a second, I thought you said your parents were both only children, Mr. Thursday..?

With that said, here’s a list of frat house and fashion approved shoes by yours truly:

Hit these sneakers fast because many of them are on sale and you’ll need these babies for the next poorly themed frat party you attend. Oh and help a girl out by passing this along to Mr. Thursday’s “cousin”, I think she’s in need of a new pair.
