After countless all-night cram sessions and endless cups of coffee, the time has finally come for the graduating class of 2017 to close their books and move on to the newest chapter of life. But first, what to wear? Graduation is such a great day- who doesn’t deserve to be celebrated for their accomplishments?! With your big day comes a new chapter in your life, as well as a reflection of your achievements and dedication through school. As our Mirabella girls have graduated from nursing school, with a teaching degree, or with a major in fashion merchandising, we like to think we are pretty well versed on how to dress successfully by putting your best foot forward in front of your friends, classmates, family, and professors. Here are a few of our suggestions to keep in mind for your special day… Choose a cute yet conservative dress- while you will want to look your best, don’t forget graduations are for everyone’s families (grandparents, aunts, uncles, etc.) and friends.

  1. Choose a dress that is flattering but still modest! Here are our top picks for graduation in 2017
    • Sleeveless High Neck Fit and Flare Dress
    • Back Cut Out Bodycon Dress
    • High Neck Lace Fitted Dress (in black or red bean)
    • Long Sleeve Lace Fitted Dress
  2. Wear comfy shoes! Being comfortable is important as you will be walking, standing, sitting, posing, and more! If you don’t want to go the sandals route, choose a cute pair of wedges that offer a lot of support. Don’t forget your shoes are technically the only thing seen as you walk across the stage and you don’t reveal your dress until you take off your graduation gown- so, your shoes are equally as important ;)
  3. Have FUN, take pics, maybe add a pop of color to your outfit by applying a sassy lipstick! Congrats to all the grads, and cheers to a fab future ahead!
