I am quite obviously in full-on graduation mode. From the makeup to the hair to the oh so important dress choice, it’s all I seem to have on my mind lately. I felt inspired by Allison‘s previous post on dresses perfect for graduation so I decided to compile my own little list to add onto it. Considering the fact that my graduation is on Friday, hopefully this will help me and any other of you soon-to-be graduated Lovelies pick your perfect dress for the big day!
I’ve picked a variety of dresses that hopefully will suit every person’s unique taste and style. The first dress (above) is a cute and flirty colorful coral that will no doubt be comfortable enough to get you through the full day of festivities. This accordian pleat print dress from MM Couture by Miss Me is actually on sale right now for an affordable $46. If you have some time before your big day, I’d consider snatching this one up!
This adorable lace cream dress from Modcloth is perfect for those that love a clean and simple look while still feeling girly. This dress would look adorable on its own or you could amp it up with a colorful or sparkly skinny belt across the waist. The pockets on this dress make it even more want-worthy as you can sneak in some gum or lip gloss to carry around with you throughout the day.
Back to the coral theme we go with this adorable tiered lace fit and flare by Max & Cleo. Coral is the color of the season and there’s no better way to get into the summertime mode than by rocking this bold and beautiful color on one of the most important days of your life. This dress strikes the perfect balance between casual and formal, making it an ideal choice to transition from early graduation ceremonies to the dinners and festivities that follow thereafter.
Here we have the kind of dress that I would likely choose for myself on graduation day. I love a great mixture of black and white because it oozes class and is always appropriate no matter what the occasion. I love the lace bodice (I’m sensing a theme here) on this satin tank dress because it makes it feel fun yet grown up all at the same time. What better way to show the world that you’re moving on and up to bigger and better things, right?
And finally we have this gorgeous royal blue high-low cutout dress. With a demure front and flirty back, you know what they say — business in the front, party in the back! You’re sure to stand out in the crowd with this bold blue shade and it’s just the right combo of fun and conservative to please both you and your family and friends. During the festivities, you’ll look perfectly pristine and put together, but when the nighttime rolls around, shake off that graduation gown and hit the town in well-deserved celebration!
Lovelies, which one of these dresses do you like best? Would you wear any of these on your big day?
