The days are long but the years are short. If that’s not the biggest truth about parenthood I don’t know what is. Last week my daughter picked up her cap and gown in preparation for graduation happening in a couple of months. I’ve started looking at graduation dresses. In an attempt at finding the perfect graduation dress, figured I’d share some with you too.
For graduation I do like the traditional white dress. I think it works with just about any color of cap and gown (for pictures with the gown open). And there’s something about wearing a white dress ya know? It’s tradition.

GRADUATION CEREMONY DRESS IDEAS

The perfect graduation dress should be on the shorter side. No longer than mid-calf and that’s at the longest. You don’t want it to peek out from under the graduation gown.
Another thing, you also don’t want it to be too form fitting, in my opinion. You want to feel easy and breezy especially since it often tends to be hot. Whether the graduation ceremony is indoor or outdoor.
My focus is on high school graduation dresses. Of course these white graduation dresses work perfectly for college graduation as well. You may be looking for something a little more mature. Check out Windsor for some great options!

TIPS FOR FINDING THE PERFECT GRADUATION DRESS
Finding the perfect graduation dress can be a fun but sometimes overwhelming task. Here are some tips to help you find the perfect dress for your graduation:
- Consider your personal style: Think about what styles you typically gravitate towards and what makes you feel confident and comfortable. Do you prefer something classic or trendy?
- Think about the dress code: Check with your school or university to see if they have any specific dress code requirements for graduation. Some schools may require certain colors or lengths for dresses.
- Consider the weather: Depending on the location and time of year, the weather can play a big factor in choosing the right dress. Make sure to choose a dress that is appropriate for the temperature and weather conditions.
- Look for comfort: Graduation ceremonies can be long and sometimes uncomfortable, so look for a dress that is comfortable to wear for extended periods of time. Avoid dresses that are too tight or restrictive.
- Try on a variety of styles: Don’t be afraid to try on different styles and silhouettes to find the perfect fit. Sometimes dresses that you might not have considered can surprise you and end up being the perfect dress.
- Accessorize: Once you have found the perfect dress, consider accessorizing to complete the look. A simple necklace, earrings, or a cute pair of shoes can add a nice touch to your outfit.
Remember, the most important thing is to choose a dress that makes you feel confident and comfortable on your special day!
