Dresses for Graduation

THROW YOUR HATS IN THE AIR

It’s that time of year again where the final years will be shopping looking for that perfect graduation dress. Some universities will be strict when it comes to the dress code whilst others are a lot more relaxed. The colour of the graduation robe/gown will differ with each university and degree. I remember exactly what I had wore for my graduation years ago – white shirt and black pencil skirt; both from New Look.

Whites, blacks, greys are perfect to wear regardless whether it’s a dress or not. If you want colour, I would suggest muted shades rather than the brights. Dresses that are too revealing, too short are a big no no. You want to be comfortable for the whole day and not pulling the dress down. You want to look smart but not too formal. I would say PG13 as there will be a lot of families around and you will definitely have your photos taken by everyone. If you do decide on wearing a dress, I would suggest in bringing a safety pin along with you to pin the gown onto your dress at the front as it will keep it secure.

What other dresses would you recommend for graduation?

    I do wore a white top and a black pencil skirt. I would definitely recommend something plain so your gown stands out. This is a great post to give people ideas. x

    love most of the dresses you have picked out! but I would prefer swing dress more than those shift dress as they look too office-ish and graduates will have plenty of chances wearing them in the future!

    Your tips are on point. Bright colors and especially too revealing dresses are a big no.

    All these dresses are fab choices, if it's a summer graduation, I think white looks amazing, especially if your gown is a dark colour. But anything that makes you feel good and a way to celebrate an amazing achievement is the best choice to make. Oh and also sensible shoes, you've don't want to fall over while walking across the stage haha x

    Personally I'd pick something a bit longer (but I like to cover my legs) these all look lovely though xx

    I personally went traditional for my graduation and wore a sari. The dresses look lovely as well 🙂

    i wore white collar shirt with pencil skirt too! i mean, the gown covers most of our body except the collar and from mid shin downwards, so i didn't think we really need to dress up underneath, since we'll definitely be taking photos with the graduation gown on.

    Those are all good choices! I went with a dark color to go with my black gown. But I saw a few girls with bright colors and it still looked fab!

    I wish I had finished my Uni in the last 5 years !! The options that you'd get to wear lovely dresses for Graduation Day are much more than what it used to be back then! I'd totally pick White and pastels over Black!
