How-to: Graduate with Style

As the school year wraps up, many of us are anxiously awaiting graduation. Whether you're graduating or you're rooting on your friend or family member from the audience, you'll need a fabulous ensemble to complete the celebratory event. When you're the one wearing the cap and gown, the scavenger hunt for the perfect dress can get a little tricky - and we know, you've got anything but time for that! Will the dress still reign fabulous under your gown? Will it show through your gown on stage?? Will it be appropriate for the day??? Will you be able to walk in your heels???? Not to worry because we've picked a few totally grad-appropriate looks to help take at least one worry off your mind. 

 - Go for a dress with a basic hem and neckline so it won't peak out from under your gown
 - A simple dress will photograph so well with or without your robe
- Wear a comfortable heel so you are able to walk across that stage with confidence

For The Attendee
Being an attendee can be just as stressful as being the graduate! Okay, maybe not... but such a special occasion does call for a great look. These ensembles are totally graduate-entourage appropriate as you would never want to upstage the star but still look totally chic for this fabulous day. 

Zara, $99 / Cole Hann, $128 / Topshop, $32
- Avoid patterns as they can often look wonky in photos
- Always spring for comfortable shoes as the day will likely involve a lot of standing around
- Go for an outfit that can easily transition into night. These events can often be nonstop.

Keep in mind that these looks can apply to all summer celebrations! Beautiful weather always calls for a beautiful outfit. If you are a soon to be alumni, we wish you the best of luck :) Congratulations and we know you will rock adulthood in style. And to all the family and friends, congrats to you as well. What an exciting time!

Truly Yours,
