What to wear to graduation

What should I wear to graduation? 

When it comes to graduation dresses, you want something you look and feel amazing in (the photos are going to be around for a while, after all). Opt for light, breathable fabrics that will sit nicely beneath your graduation gown – you don’t want to get too hot while you’re in the ceremony. The dress code for graduation ceremonies is usually semi-formal for guests and participants. So, whether you’d like to keep things classic or go bold, we’ve picked out our top three graduation outfits. 

A timeless graduation dress 

If you’re after a classic graduation outfit, choose our blue tea dress. It combines a timeless silhouette and polka-dot print with bold embroidered florals, making it something quite special. Pair it with colourful heels or flats that match the embroidery, white sunglasses and a gold necklace to finish it off. 

Something bold 

Make a statement in our cobalt blue scarf print dress, which will pop against black gowns. For extra flair, jazz up your graduation outfit with these fun tassel earrings, which complement the tassel on your mortarboard perfectly. 

A dress you’ll wear again and again 

For a more relaxed and laid-back vibe go for our black embroidered tunic dress. It’s arty and bohemian, making it perfect for those completing a creative course. Either opt for classic black heels and bright earrings or a hammered cuff gold bracelet and white heels to compliment the embroidery.
