WHAT TO WEAR: Graduation

What to Wear

Finals can be challenging and papers can be stressful, but one of the biggest struggles for any grad is finding the perfect thing to wear to graduation. Between the dress, the shoes, the accessories and how to do your hair so it looks good under your cap— it can be a real struggle.

One of the most important things to remember is the color of your gown. Ours are black, so the options are endless, but light color gowns (specifically white) can limit your choices. The second most important thing to remember when choosing your outfit is comfort. You will be sitting through a rather long ceremony, so anything too tight or any shoes too small will make an already long event unbearable.

This Fashionista clearly took all of this into consideration when finding her perfect graduation look. She looks mature and classy for this scholarly event with her red high-low dress. The dress length is appropriate and professional, and the dress is comfortable and loose.

For her accessories and shoes, she wears a pair of brown wedges. Needless to say, wedges are the perfect style for walkable and comfortable shoes. Think twice about stilettos, because tripping on stage may not be the memory your were hoping to make on your graduation day. She also accessorizes with a gold layered necklace, a bracelet, a watch and some rings.

One Simple Change: Swap the wedges with your favorite pair of black pumps for a great fancy date night look. You’re sure to make your man swoon!
