The most important day of your student life is almost here and
dressing for the occasion can be just as stressful as sitting that final
exam. Marking a significant chapter of your life, a graduation is a
family affair and one to be shared with loved ones before embarking onto
the next phase of your life. Making an effort is imperative as we all
know the cap-and-gown photos grace walls and fireplaces for centuries to
come. But what do you opt for? The gown in itself can prove tricky
thanks to odd university colours or being handed a size too big on the
day but failsafe rules apply. Stick to these and you'll breeze through
graduation with a swish of your gown...
Ladies, think cute but comfortable
You don't want to be caught pulling down your mini skirt as you make the walk to the stage, all eyes will be on you. Opt for a graduation dress
that's flattering yet completely comfortable to sit, stand and curtsy
in. The rest of the day will be effortlessly easy if you're wearing a
dress you feel good in and we've found three styles that cater to the
day perfectly. Nipped at the waist to give structure and shape, all of
these dresses will look prim and proper for your big day. The added
accents, be it lace, metallic thread or fresh rose tones will give you
just enough wow-power under your gown.
This rule should follow through to your footwear
too. Starting the day early and likely to carry right on through the
evening, your shoes need to have staying power. Blocked heels and wedges
are best suited to all-day occasions plus will carry you through the
rest of your summer soirées.
Black, blue or grey - what will it be, Gents?
all depends on your graduation colours. Blues and greens will look
better with navy suits while bright reds and yellows are best
accompanied by black. For you boys, a pair of perfectly tailored trrousers
combined with a crisp white, freshly ironed shirt should do the job
perfectly. Likely to be in summer, leave your jacket at home.
- Whatever colour you choose, a classic white shirt, pair of black brouges and a plain skinny tie will complete your graduation outfit with a refined and smart appeal.
