What to wear to spring graduation
By Page Walker
Congrats grad! The days of pulling all-nighters, cramming for finals, binge drinking coffee and those terrible shower shoes are finally coming to an end. But your college stress isn’t over quite yet — you still have to find the perfect dress to accept your well-deserved diploma in.
If any occasion calls for treating yourself to a new outfit, it’s graduation. You will feel like a superstar the entire weekend, so you might as well look the part too. Not to mention, your family and friends will most likely be there fawning over you and snapping pictures left and right. (Paparazzi, please!)
May 14 is less than three weeks away and you don’t want to end up frantically power walking around NorthPark Center the night before graduation trying to find a last-minute something to wear. Thankfully, you still have enough time to order a dress online that suits your fancy.
When it comes to choosing the perfect dress, don’t forget to stay true to your personal style while also keeping in mind the formality of the occasion. Opt for something classic that won’t go out of style over something super trendy, but don’t settle for boring.
Let your personality shine through under that big blue robe, whether it be by choosing a fun floral pattern or a bright springy color. Here is a variety of dress options of different prices and styles that would be excellent for the occasion:
Alice + Olivia
Tevin Racerback Palm Mini Dress ($368), available at
Camargue Wrap Dress ($88), available at
Sleeveless Dress ($49.99), available at
Striped Dress ($39.90), available at
