Say goodbye to your new alma mater in style

‘Tis the season to graduate! People are being bombarded with graduation announcements and party invitations, stores have setup signs displaying the “perfect” gift for a graduate. These things can be overwhelming. The majority of parents take care of announcements, party invitations and favors. My mom managed the number of graduation tickets I was given for my high school graduation, so I only had one worry: what kind of dress should I wear?!

Some high school graduations require specific dress codes. At my school, the girls were required to wear a white dress. Even if it’s not required, white dresses are perfect for Spring and Summer, so L2B recommends these:

On the other hand, college graduates can dress more leniently. Although I would advise ladies to still wear a dress.

After you are done with cap and gown pictures with family and friends, take off your gown. You want to show off the dress underneath. Try a little black dress, like this one from Juicy Couture.

If you want to go bold, definitely go with neon or brights! They are huge this season and are a great way to stand out. Try this one from Forever 21.

This past weekend I attended a college graduation. I wanted to look nice and presentable. I chose to wear a peachy dress.

I always follow the dress to impress rule even if I’m sitting in a chair, listening to names, and watching graduates walk across a stage. You never know whom you might run into.

If you’re a parent or an aunt watching your son, daughter, niece or nephew graduate, a colorful blouse with slacks would do well. A simple dress would look great for photos too!

Did you attend a graduation this year? What did you wear?
