Around this time of year, people are looking for outfit ideas for graduation. If you, too, are wondering what to wear to graduation, you are in the right place as Vy’s Closet shares share some great ideas with you:
Choose Your Shoes First
For any other occasion, you might simply match the shoes to the dress you’re wearing. For graduation, though, your shoes may very well be the star of show (well, aside from you, of course). That’s because you’ll be wearing a cap and a gown for the ceremony so your dress will be covered and the only thing people will see as you walk across the big stage are your shoes. Needless to say, they should be fabulous. That said, they should also be comfortable. Graduation can last for hours and you want to make sure your feet are comfy because if they’re not, that’s all you’d be focusing on.
Opt for a block heel or a wedge because while those kitten heels and pointed ones look sexy, they’re going to be difficult to walk in especially when you walk on grass. The last thing you want to happen is to stumble and trip on your graduation day because of your heels!
Opt for a Nice Dress
While you may choose to wear a skirt and a cute top or even a jumpsuit, a nice dress would be a better option because it’s unlikely that you’ll end up overdressing or underdressing. Choose a dress that’s perfect for the season. For instance, if you’re graduating in spring, go for a bright or pastel dress perhaps with a floral print. If you’re graduating in winter or fall, you may go for a darker hue.
Consider the Graduation Gown
When choosing a length for your dress, always consider the length of your graduation gown. Typically, those gowns are either mid-calf or ankle length. As a guide, your dress or skirt should be shorter than the gown as a hemline showing under the gown will not look good. Try to stay away from micro mini dresses that might be uncomfortable and inappropriate for the event.
Don’t Forget to Choose the Right Underwear and Shapewear
Don’t just think about your dress and your shoes. If you want to look your best and feel confident and comfortable at the same time, you should
carefully choose your undergarments. You need sufficient support and your bra lines or straps should not show. A t shirt bra or a seamless strapless bra is a great option, especially if the dress’ neckline is quite low. You might want to consider getting a shapewear for your graduation, especially if there’s going to be an afterparty and you want to look your absolute best.
Don’t Forget to Accessorize
You might want to skip the necklace and bracelet as these are not visible thanks to the graduation gown. Instead focus on your earrings. These are perhaps the only jewelry that you should wear. You can go for a simple pair of stud earrings or wear statement earrings.
Graduation is one of the most important days in your life and you want to
be perfectly dressed for the occasion. You want to look back at your graduation photos and be happy with what you see. When choosing your outfit, make sure to prioritize not only style but also comfort, especially if the ceremony is going to last for a few hours. That means that from your choice of body shaper to your shoes, comfort should always be considered.
