WHAT TO WEAR: Graduation

January 12th, 2016 at 2:00am

The spring semester is drawing near, and for seniors that means the college years are almost over. This is an exciting, yet nerve-wracking time of year. You are working on keeping good grades, senior thesis as well as preparing to land that dream job. Furthermore, you are using those connections and networks that you have cultivated. Preparing yourself for what you want to do after graduation is a huge deal. Graduation is a major milestone in your life. This is where you look back at your accomplishments, say your goodbyes and how you are glad it is all over. It is time to open a new chapter in your life story. Your graduation look should represent you and make you feel confident for the future. Dress for success!

Today’s Fashionista is sporting a flirty, feminine stark white dress with gold metallic detailing, which is perfect for graduation. The dress is short, but tasteful, with a silhouette that flatters her figure. The gold metallic foil replicates the look of a dry brush over white canvas. This subtle design pays homage to art school. To add an air of sophistication, she has paired the dress with a classic black blazer. The single white and gold button plays up the colors of the dress. You cannot go wrong with a black blazer because it never goes out of style! What keeps this blazer fresh and trendy is that it has a boxy, slouchy fit that is currently in style. The look is complete with a simple pair of nude low heels, gold heart earrings and a burgundy lip. A pair of heels that are not too high is best because you are going to be on your feet all day. You also don’t want to run the risk of falling on stage! Nude color shoes are on-trend, and who is not obsessed with a burgundy lip right now? The neutral color palette of this look keeps things clean, professional and classy.

One Simple Change: As the Fashionista exhibits here, simply removing the black blazer takes the look from day to night. This easy change takes you from graduation, to a formal after party with your girls.
