It’s that time of year again, and graduation ceremonies are around the corner. High school, undergrad or graduate school–no matter what degree you’re receiving, it’s a big deal! Even though for the ceremony and post-ceremony pictures you’ll likely be in your cap and gown, it’s still a day-long event for most people, so your outfit matters! If you are graduating this spring 2014, here are some fun, trendy picks for your graduation dress. Graduation [more or less] is just another fun reason to go shopping–these picks will take you through the summer season for all your parties, local events and weddings.
Ann Taylor Jacquard Sheath Dress
This fun, floral dress is the perfect spring frock for graduation season. It’s textured material adds elegance. It’s a fitted, sheath style and comes in a beautiful corally-pink hue. Dress it up with neutral heels or keep it casual with ballet flats.
J. Crew Stretch Eyelet Dress
This is your new spring, flirty little black dress. It features a sheer eyelet neckline with short sleeves. The keyhole shape on the back dresses it up a bit and the dress’ fit is a-line. Its length is not too short, but it is the perfect find for girls who love to wear flats. Pick a pair of colorful ballet flats to add a pop of style to the outfit.
Cutout Chiffon Dress from Nordstrom
This would be a cute option for your high school graduate. The cutouts are fun but not over the top. Pair the dress with a cardigan and sparkly ballet flats to fit your high school-aged graduate. The dress comes in a multitude of colors, so your grad will surely find the one for her.
Banana Republic Sloan-fit Dot-print Sheath Dress
Another sheath-fit dress, this is a classic look with oversized black dots on a cream hue. It’s sleeveless, so add a black or colorful cardigan for a complete look. You can accessorize with jeweled earrings and a matching cocktail ring.
Kate Spade Bowden Dress
This is an elegant pick for graduation and all of summer’s fancier events. It’s a flattering, knee-length dress in a lovely floral print. The neckline is pleated which makes it feminine and a classic addition for your closet.
