Last year it was two weeks before my graduation, I had no idea how important it was to have a cute dress for graduation. I believe I was planning on wearing the same dress I wore to my brothers graduation in 8th grade. But I had no motivation to wear a white dress. For some reason white dresses are the “common” thing to wear but personally I like to be a little different. Here are some outfit ideas featuring non white grad dresses.
Lace Halter Dress
This is the same neck line I wore for my graduation. The best part is you never have to worry about the straps of your dress falling down but the letdown is you have to wear a strapless bra.
Even though you are not graduating alone, it is your day. Don’t stick to the social norm if you want to wear a print dress. This dress is gorgeous and you can wear it to your friends party that starts and hour after your graduation ends.
Retro Color Block Dress
This dress is great because it has a lot of detail but is not overwhelming for a graduation. I once bought a dress that had a crazy geometric print but I got washed out by the dress. The yellow skirt balances out the retro top.
If you can’t tell I love the color blue. I think if you have dark hair like me I looks great. What I love about this dress is how comfortable it looks. You’re going to be sitting, in a hot auditorium for at least an hour. The last thing you want is not being able to breath in a tight dress.
This is the perfect dress to wear if you are going to a fancy dinner with your parents right after your graduation. The dress is short and sleeveless so you won’t overheat during your graduation.
