Graduation Dresses
Our go-to for graduation ‘fit would probably be a dress. This is the obvious choice, we know, but it can be really hot in a graduation gown in the July heat so we think its best to keep the layers to a minimum! Go for a style that you feel most comfortable in, that will make you feel most confident while you walk across that stage.
Midi Dresses
Midi dresses are a great formal option for your graduation. We'd tend to stay away from black so your outfit stands out from your graduation gown - think brights or neutrals are ideal.
Jenna's picks: Emerald Green Slinky Ruched One Shoulder Midi Dress, White Slinky Square Neck Side Split Maxi Dress, Sage Satin Off The Shoulder Knot Midi Dress
More of a mini dress person? Thats okay too! It's important to wear what you're most comfortable in on your big day. We'd suggest a blazer dress or a piece in a more premium looking fabric, like satin, to keep things smart.
Jenna's picks: White Sequin Balloon Sleeve Bodycon Dress, Blue Asymmetric Detail Wrap Blazer Dress, Blue Satin Racer Diamante Chain Back Dress, Lilac Satin Ruched Bust Bodycon Dress
Graduation Co-Ords
We're loving co-ords right now, and think they're a great option for a graduation outfit. Whether it's a top and skirt or trousers set or you go down the tailoring route with a full suit, co-ords are perfect if you're not really a dress person.
Jenna's picks: Baby Pink Cropped Blazer & Wide Leg Tailored Trousers, White Asymmetric Bandeau Corset With Train & Tailored Wide Leg Trouser, Brown Pinstripe Cropped Blazer & Mini Skirt With Notch
Graduation Jumpsuits & Playsuits
Still in need of more outfit inspo? If a dress or co-ord isn't for you, the effortless of a jumpsuit or playsuit could be the one. Keep things subdued in a plain neutral or bright piece, or stand out in something printed. You can never go wrong with florals!
Shop: Champagne Satin Plunge Cowl Neck Wide Leg Jumpsuit, White Textured Ruffle Bardot Playsuit, Lilac Satin Crossover Halterneck Wide Leg Jumpsuit, Pink One Shoulder Asymetric Blazer Playsuit
Shoes & Accessories For Graduation
Don't forget those perfect finishing touches for your graduation outfit! Make sure you get some comfy shoes, whether it be a low heel or some barely theres, you’ll be wearing them all day so comfort is key. Don't forget a bag to put your essentials into and some jewellery to complete the look! You'll be surprised how much just popping some earrings on can take your outfit up a notch.
