First Class Style – Graduation Outfits



To those who are graduating this year I just want to say congratulations! Obviously such an exciting day and achievement, it’s a time when you want to look and feel good! Here are my tips on what to wear to your Graduation. Graduation season is just around the corner and whether you are graduating this year, you’ll want to have the perfect outfit! I’ve teamed up with PrettyLittleThing to bring you some cute outfits that are perfect for graduation. If you have no idea what to wear to a graduation, today’s article is here to help. Here is the link to the PrettyLittleThing Graduation shop, the have plenty of styles to choose from.

What to Wear to Your Graduation – Clothing

Even though you’re going to have a huge robe on for most of the ceremony, it’s still important to look nice underneath. After all, you’ll likely be in photos before/after the robe, and probably celebrating at lunch after. Since the robes aren’t what we’d call flattering, I highly suggest wearing a dress. This way, you’ll still be able to show off at least your ankles and you won’t be dealing with trousers gathering up under the robe.

As far as the type of dress, wear something you’d wear to church or that you’d be comfortable in in from of grandparents. It’s definitely not the time to wear anything too revealing. I suggest a dress that hits right above your knee or that stops mid-calf. This way, you’re still breaking up the robe with your ankles showing, and you’re conservative enough for the occasion. Alternatively, Jumpsuits are a great alternative for those who don’t want to wear dresses. The one in this post from Pretty Little Thing is my favourite!





Outfit 3: Mint Jumpsuit £18

Also consider the you should consider the heat. Even if it is cooler in England, most graduations are HOT, whether they’re inside or you’re out after, just because of the sheer amount of people around. Stay away from colours that show sweat (grey and most light colours), or at least wear something with a pattern that would hide anything. Because let me tell you, you’ll be sitting for a LONG time, and that plus the weight of the robe will add body heat. I suggest an outfit that lets you breath, nothing too tight, and something with cap sleeves, sleeveless, or at least breathable material. White or mint is a great colour for grads, as you don’t have to worry about getting it dirty since the robe will be covering you when you sit.

What to Wear to Your Graduation – Accessories

Since your head and feet are really the only thing that will be showing when you have your robe and cap on, have a play with accessories! Shoes are the main attraction here, so pick a pair that you love. I’d definitely walk in them a good amount before to break them in and ensure that you’re confident wearing them. Remember that you’ll probably be walking on grass at some point (a lot of graduations take place on fields), so a wedge or a block heel is a good option. Don’t wear anything too high, as you want to look comfortable (and be comfy) throughout the ceremony. I ALWAYS go for a block heel, gives you height without breaking your back.

Then, don’t forget about earrings or a lovely necklace to spice things up. Your hair will likely be down (don’t forget you’ll have a cap on), so grab a pair of earrings that stick out even with hair down, or a statement necklace to place over the gown/robe.

You most likely won’t be allowed to carry a bag to your graduation, so either keep it at home or give it to a family member before. But either way, I wouldn’t bother forking out a huge amount of money on a new bag since you won’t be wearing one for most of the day.





And there you have it! My little guide to what to wear to a graduation in collaboration with PrettyLittleThing. Let me know if you have any other questions and I’d love to see your grad looks! :D
