WHAT TO WEAR: Graduation Party

What to Wear

Graduating symbolizes so much more than finishing a degree. It allows us to take a step back and recognize our accomplishments, amazing friendships and personal growth over the past four years. Whether you are graduating from high school and joining the college ranks, or saying good bye to your now almamater, it is important to dress the part. Whether you are the star graduate of the evening or simply an attendee, every Fashionista should strive to nail the perfect outfit for the party!

I spotted this style star leaving a high school graduation celebration this past weekend. What initially caught my eye were her color and texture combinations that made for a subtly sweet ensemble. The studded top and sweet skirt were the perfect pair to portray a confident and playful image. Mixing textures like this is a great way to add dimension to a look with a simplistic approach.  The gold in her Michael Kors watch effectively brought out the embellishment in her top making it a focal point. By pairing these two unexpected separates with nude ballet flats, she draws the attention upwards to the textures in her outfit while still elongating her legs. Nude sandals, such as these incredible L.A.M.B. open toed ones are the perfect summer shoe! The neutral palette and intriguing roughness create the perfect complement to any outfit. Their versatility is endless. This Fashionista’s adorable Longchamp bag should also be a staple in any girl’s wardrobe. It can translate from the perfect daytime carry all to a book bag during the school year and comes in every color imaginable! A good watch is also a simple essential. Not only are watches incredibly practical to keep you from being tardy to the party, they are a perfect complement to every outfit. This Fashionista did a fantastic job of showing off her personal style in a celebratory fashion! She looked unbelievably put together showing that she is ready to support and join all of the graduates ready take on the real world.

One Simple Change: This ensemble could easily carry over from day to night by throwing on a lovely cardigan to keep you warm and cozy on a cool summer night. This Fashionista would be all set to venture out on a casual date night in this look. The sweet pastel tones in this ensemble show elegance and class that would surely impress any young fella!
