Graduation proved to be one of the most bittersweet moments of my life. On the one hand I was so proud to say I was a college graduate and to have all of my friends and family around me. Then, on the other hand, it meant that college and all of the fun that goes along with being a student was over. For your last college event, there will undoubtedly be countless pictures of you and so wearing something cute and appropriate is absolutely necessary. Today’s Fashionista showed us how to rock the perfect graduation look.
For the most part girls wear cute summer dresses under their caps and gowns and this pink chiffon dress is a great example. The flowy fabric and bright color are perfect for the time of year, but also this dress looks comfortable for sitting through that long ceremony.
Another thing to keep in mind when choosing your graduation dress is to pick something that you won’t look back on in 20 years and hate. Playing it safe with a graduation dress is okay because these are pictures and memories you’ll have forever. Today’s Fashionista did a great job at doing this because while her dress is current it also is timeless. Nothing about the cut or color will ever be looked at as strange in the future.
This Fashionista chose a pair of summer wedges with a braided ankle strap and a modest heel height so that she would be comfortable. Wearing a little bit of a lower heel on graduation is okay because you definitely don’t want to be the one to trip as you walk across stage! The finishing touch of this look is some subtle pink lip-gloss and of course a PSU grad cap. Congrats class of 2013!
