What to wear to a graduation

Long or midi dress

By design, thelong dressusually reserved for more formal eventsand night ceremonies, so if you opt for it we recommend combining it with more minimalist accessories, natural makeup and loose or semi-tied hair so as not to look like you're going to a wedding.

One of the best alternatives ismidi-dress, whether the graduation is day or night, you can choose this versatile and elegant cut. If you want to give your style a different touch, we recommend a midi dress with simple lines and a satin fabric and risking a fun and youthful print that gives character to the look.

Midi Dresses for Graduation

Short dress

Because going short and very elegant is more than possible,choose a design that suits your silhouette and try not to be too short for protocol and for your own comfort. We advise you to stay away from transparencies, plunging necklines and very tight designs.

With theshort dressyou will be able to show off legs and shoes, so keep that in mind when preparing for graduation. Satin fabrics, asymmetrical necklines and bright colors will be your best allies. The best? Going short will make it much easier to reuse the look.
