What to Wear: Graduation Ceremony

I can’t believe that my graduation is less than a month away! Time certainly flies. With the graduation ceremony less than a month away (May 7th is the exact date), I need to start thinking about what I am going to wear. Now, I am either going to wear my nude or black pumps…I know this much. Now, let’s find the perfect dress. For a graduation ceremony, whether it is indoors or outdoors, you want something comfortable, light, and breezy. Most graduation robes are black, but it is nice to wear white, pastels, or something springy. Let’s take a look at some contenders.

Charcoal Terrace Dress

I love this pretty dress by Fei. The print and the bodice are very feminine and pretty. The silk fabric will definitely keep one cool during a long ceremony. The dress is $158 at Anthropologie.com

This pretty lace dress is also a perfect choice. It is very feminine, but the orange underneath adds a nice contrast to the white lace. The dress is $29.80 at Forever21.com

I am quite obsessed with this cream dress by Friend of Mine. Although it is a simple silhouette, it is beautiful with its pleated skirt. This is also a fabulous choice. The dress is $220 at Shopbop.com
