It’s that time of year again: the weather is warming and final exams are starting.  Summer break is almost here!  But you’re stressing about something else: what to wear for graduation?!  All your hard work for the last four years is culminating into one moment when you receive your diploma and you become an alumna.  This is a major life achievement and you want to look and feel your best. Perhaps you still haven’t gotten over the shock that you are actually graduating or maybe you’ve been too busy taking advantage of your last semester at college, whatever your reason may be, if you don’t have a graduation dress here’s a little inspiration to help you get started with your search.  

Floral: Floral patterns are a spring staple and they make a perfect pattern for a spring graduation dress. 

White: White seems to be a graduation classic.  The options are endless!

Tea: The silhouette of a tea dress is the perfect way to dress up a little and still look cute.

Bold: Show off your style personality with a funky patterned dress or a cool fabric. 

Lace: Lace is sweet, ladylike, and the perfect way to add subtle texture to your graduation dress.
