WHAT TO WEAR: Graduation

Tis the season for graduations! At the convocation ceremony, as students cheer and toss their caps in the air after officially being designated as the 2016 graduates, it is also your last day as an undergrad. This means you have one more final impression to make when you say your final goodbyes with your colleagues and part your ways. Before becoming your school’s newest alumni, you will want to make one final fashion statement that let your friends remember you at your best, something unique, something that screams “you.”

Spotted on her way to the convocation ceremony, this Fashionista’s vibrant and colorful dress stood out from the crowd and caught my attention. This Fashionista wore an eye-catching pink geo-tribal print dress from Missoni and she was rocking a pair of black suede strappy high heel sandals from Staccato.

One simple piece of jewelry is all you need to accessorize your graduation dress. This Fashionista accessorized her outfit with a gold statement necklace from Claire’s; with the color combination of her pink dress, bronze hair and the gold necklace, it perfectly matches her skin tone and radiates a warm and bright vibe. The different shades of blue and orange geo-prints on the neon pink dress also forms a perfect color palette for late spring and early summer, totally ideal for graduation celebration.

This Fashionista sure knows her color balances by finishing her outfit with a pair of black suede strappy high heel sandals, pairing black or a neutral colour together with neon colors bring the bold and bright hues into balance. The design of the straps adds a hint of sophistication mixed with elegance on these subtle colored heels.

Whether you are the one graduating or attending the celebration of a friend, you’ll be sure to look stylish in all your pictures wearing a printed dress. Get a tribal print dress similar to this Fashionista’s for a bold and glamorous look; you can also try a pastel floral print for a soft and elegant tone, or a flirty aztec print dress with cut-outs to show off your waist; my advice is find a print that speaks your style. These dresses are all perfect for graduation occasion. Not only are they dressy and feminine, wearing your favorite prints also allow you to express your personality; formal for the ceremony and relaxed for the after party!

Go pink or go home! If you feel inspired by this Fashionista and want to achieve the look, you will be sure to look stylish in all your grad pics that you will look back for the rest of your life.

One Simple Change: Add a simple basic blazer for a smart casual look—the ultimate guide to getting a job after you graduate, this look will give you the confidence to rock your job interviews!
