Graduation Dresses For Every Girl

Graduations and end-of-year ceremonies are some of the most important and memorable events in the life of every girl. This is the day when you get to walk across the stage, conclude an academic life, and commence a new chapter. This means that it is crucial to look spectacular, and the most important aspect is the dress. Although it may hide under the cap and the gown in some cases, the dress is something that every girl deserves for her graduation, and it is equally important that it matches her style and personality. The dress should match the dress code of the graduation ceremony, ensuring that you look great while still adhering to the rules.

There are many of us out there and we want our graduation look to reflect our truest personality. We have put together an edit of our favourite styles for every kind of personality out there so that you can dress to your style and be able to graduate with confidence. Before starting your search it is important to consider the colour of your traditional graduation gown and faculty sash. This can help you decide on the perfect colour for your graduation and formal dress. Black or white dresses are always a safe option to match a black graduation gown).


Artsy A-lines

There are various styles of graduation dresses that cater to every need, taste and preference. The A-line dress is a great choice for a girl with a confident personality as it can be dressed up and down for whatever look you need. The A-line dress is a popular style that creates a flattering silhouette for a pear-shaped body. This is because a fitted bodice and a flared skirt create the illusion of height and length. The A-line dress is the perfect choice for graduation day as it will have you feeling sleek and sophisticated as you grasp your academic certificate.


Business Attire Silhouettes

The modern, independent girl should go for a graduation dress that is a form fitting silhouette. A dress that is all about accentuating your curves and bringing a statement look. A body con dress is the perfect choice and this can be a formal gown, which is perfect for a fancy graduation event. A bold coloured dress is perfect for this girl as it can represent your vibrant personality. You can also match the tones of your graduation gown and sash with your gown by choosing colours with the same hues whether that be warm or cool. Pairing your look with statement earrings can contrast your black graduation cap and steal the show.


Law of the Midi Length

When choosing a graduation dress, comfort should not be overlooked. The dress should be breathable and easy to move around in, allowing for an enjoyable and memorable experience. Therefore the midi dress is another perfect option. It is a versatile style that comes in various silhouettes and fabrics, perfect for those who are flirty and fun. The midi dress will swish and sway as you graduate and will have you feeling confident in every kind of way. This kind of girl should go for a colour that is enchanting such as a jewel-tone navy or ruby red coloured dress. Floral embellishments can add the perfect touch to a midi dress and can be paired with crystal earrings and a silver necklace.
