So, I’ve heard a lot of seniors wondering what they will be wearing to graduation and graduation related festivities. Here are some tips on graduation wear.
1) Graduation garb for guys is pretty straight forward, pants, shirt, and classy shoes. Girls have it a little harder. With the weather we have had lately, a dress could get chilly. But no pain no gain, and who knows, maybe it will be warm under that black gown. I think color block dresses are the way to go. You don’t want to be in a sea of girls who are all wearing white or black. Just don’t wear anything you think would be appropriate at The Packer.
2) Accessories are the most important part of the graduation assemble. A dress is a dress is a dress, but what you’ll notice in the photos along with mom and dad is the necklace, the earrings and the awesome wedges. I suggest bright spring wedges and no stilettos so that the heels are not digging into the grass.
3) The dinner cruise. This is what people have really been concerned with. A balance between class and warmth can be tricky. For the girls, leggings can really be a saving grace. They allow you to wear a dress or skirt, but still remain warm.
