What to wear to a graduation

Long or midi dress

By design, thelong dress is usually reserved for more formal events and evening ceremonies, so if you opt for it we recommend combining it with more minimalist accessories, natural makeup and loose or semi-up hair to avoid looking like you're going to a wedding.

One of the best alternatives is the midi dressWhether the graduation is during the day or at night you can choose this versatile and elegant cut. If you want to give a different touch to your style, we recommend a midi dress with simple lines and betting on a satin fabric and taking a risk with 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 fits your silhouette and make sure it is not too short for protocol and for your own comfort. We advise you to stay away from transparencies, plunging necklines and tight-fitting designs.

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