Question: I’m going to a graduation ceremony – what should I wear?
Answer: Graduation is an exciting time, whether you’re walking across the stage or cheering on the grads. Oh, and it’s also the perfect excuse to dress up. Graduation is a momentous occasion; everyone’s got to look their best!
Dresses or skirts are a must! If you’re going to a friend’s graduation, opt for a cute, flowy sundress. Keep the style of the dress simple—in other words, stay away from the crinoline and tulle—a classic cotton blend will do!
Don’t let patterns intimidate you! Sure, the dress itself is simple—but that doesn’t mean the print has to be. Experiment with patterns (floral, tribal, chunky stripes, you name it!) and find one that flatters your body type.
If all you want is a single pop of color, vouch for a solid piece. Deep colors like royal blue and vibrant magenta are all the rage this season, and can be easily accented with some gold jewelry.
When it comes to shoes, you’ve got options! If your feet can survive it, wear a pair of heels in a classic hue like black or tan. Just be sure to keep a pair of Fast Flats in your purse (to save your feet when they’re in need of a break)!
If you’re not comfortable with heels, flats are the fail-safe option. Forget those boring ballet flats—a pointed shoe with a small heel and subtle detailing is much fancier than your average flat, and perfect for a semi-formal occasion like a graduation ceremony.
Again, classic colors are key—they go with anything!
With this simple and striking look, you’ll be looking chic even without the cap and gown!
