WHAT TO WEAR: Graduation

May is just around the corner, which means graduation season is upon us. This is a bittersweet time for any college student. Yes, you’re probably excited to begin a new chapter of your life, but you’re sad that you college career is officially over. Whether you’re ready to join the adult world (or not), you’ll need a chic outfit for graduation. Take a few tips from this Fashionista on how to style a little white dress for spring.

I love that the white dress is trending this spring. It’s refreshing to see a simple color worn in a stylish way. It’s a great option for graduation, especially if you have been working on a tan that you want to show off. If you’re a fan of the classic little black dress (LBD), you might want to try out a white dress instead. You’ll be surprised that a white dress is just as versatile as a black dress.

With a white dress, it’s best to keep your look minimal. Don’t overload your look with accessories and jewelery. Instead, opt for a dainty gold necklace and a pair of sandals you can wear all day long. Since graduation consists of many pictures, standing (and crying), you’ll need extra comfort for the long day ahead.

If you’re apprehensive about wearing an all-white dress, tone down the dress by adding a cardigan. Choose a cardigan in a darker shade that will complement the light color. If you’re looking to take on a nautical theme like this Fashionista, navy blue is a great option for this particular style.

One Simple Change: After graduation, you’ll probably go out with your girlfriends before you all leave. You can still rock the little white dress at night. Swap out your sandals for a pair of heels and instead of a cardigan, rock a leather jacket for an edgy look.
