What to Wear to Graduation

While the end of the year means studying for finals and putting the last touches on getting ready for prom, it also means that it's time for Graduation! Whether you're graduating from high school or college, it means that it's the celebration of the end of one stage of your life, and the soon to be new beginning of your next stage. So, while it may feel stressful right now, there will be plenty of parties to attend and plenty of fun to be had.


What to wear on graduation day may not be first on your mind right now, but it's definitely an important thing to think about. Just like prom, it's a day that you'll never forget, and a day that many pictures will be taken! So, even though you'll be wearing a graduation gown for the ceremony, you'll definitely want to make sure you have a cute dress underneath. This way, when it's time to take off the cap and gown, you'll be ready for all the pictures (and the parties, of course)!

When it comes to picking a dress, we recommend choosing something that's flirty and summery. A lot of graduations are held outside, so you want to make sure you're comfortable and don't get too hot. We have an exception below, but we also love dresses that are either strapless or one shoulder, because they usually won't peek through the top of your gown. Below are our favorite dresses for graduation day, to give you some ideas.

Dave & Johnny 8914

Dave & Johnny style 8914 is one of our favorite dresses for graduation. The ivory  lace look is so perfect for the spring and summer months, and the beaded waist adds just the right amount of glam. Best yet, since it's a strapless dress, it won't even show when you're wearing your graduation gown!

Blush C111

White is so on-trend this year, so Black by Blush style C111 is another white colored dress that we love for graduation.  This sexy one-shoulder is draped in silver stones that define your figure. Since it's a one-shoulder with a low cut, this is another dress that shouldn't show under your gown.

Sherri Hill 21167

Sherri Hill style 21167 is just so chic, that it makes for a perfect graduation cocktail dress! The lace is just stunning and will surely make you the center of attention in pictures! We also love the open back - it makes it so perfect for warmer weather! Since it has a boat neck top, the dress may peek through your gown a little. But, with such elegant lace detail and stunning colors, it will only help to add a must-needed style uplift to your grad gown!

Whatever dress you wear, just keep a big smile on your face all day and be proud and excited that you will be entering a new stage in your life soon! Congrats and good luck!!
