Late spring and early summer are the prime time for ceremonies highlighting the accomplishments and hard work of graduates. Whether you’re celebrating your own or a loved ones, this is a huge honor. Jackie is going to show off her favorite chic styles to wear under your grad gown and cap and cute looks if you’re celebrating the grad on their big day!
• For the Guest: WHEN IN DOUBT, WEAR A DRESS There aren’t any hard and fast rules for what to wear to graduation, so it’s always better to be overdressed than underdressed.
• For the Grad: KNOW WHERE YOUR GOWN WILL HIT WHEN CHOOSING DRESS LENGTH: To make things easier on yourself, try to keep the length of your graduation dress shorter than your gown. Avoid a maxi dress and opt for a knee length, mini, or midi dress. These will not only look better when you walk across the stage (no random colors or prints peeking out for pictures) but should keep you cool and be easier to move in.
• For the Guest: IT’S BETTER TO BE OVERDRESSED, BUT LET THE GRADUATE SHINE: Keep the graduate the center of attention with your color and print choices. You can still wear florals, colors, and prints, but try to keep them a little more understated.
• For the Grad: CAN YOU WEAR WHITE? Certain schools have traditions or guidelines around what you can and can’t wear under your gown. White is one of the most common for the ladies.
