Graduation month is coming closer and closer and as a girl, I’m asking myself what I should wear for that special day. I have been thinking about graduation dresses for the past few months and having a hard time deciding.
To be honest, I can’t wait until May 14 comes, my master thesis is keeping me busy and I’m working towards my defense. Unfortunately, there is one more paper I have to write before I can relax and look forward to Graduation Day. My parents will come on this special day from Germany, which will be a new experience since German universities mostly do not have the American graduation ceremonies.
The school differences can be immense – nobody celebrated me (except my parents who have to ;-)) when I finished my Bachelor’s degree and I didn’t wear a gown and cap. Why is that so? They celebrate High School graduation but when you manage it to get through college with decent grades and still are alive from all the parties, nobody shakes your hand and celebrates you in a 2-hour event. There seems to be a logic behind it which I don’t really understand.
Now, for the first time after high school, I can celebrate a degree with my loved ones and a million other people. When so many people are present, I would like to look pretty, so the choice of the graduation dress is essential. Many people wear white to their graduation – don’t ask me why, I wasn’t raised in America ;-). However, a day like this screams for something more extravagant.
You have to feel comfortable in your dress since you will wear it the entire day. So choose a material, color, and length you feel good with. It can also be a maxi or midi dress. I just chose a short dress because I know it will be too hot for me in a longer dress, but the length is totally up to you.
My 5 favorite graduation dresses
I have posted 5 dresses here I picked from different online shop just to show you some examples for your personal Graduation Day. As you can see I chose some rosé, lavender, or blue colors for the dresses. I have a weakness for these colors, they look very romantic which makes you look very elegant at the same time. I wish I could have all the dresses, they are just so pretty.
The graduation dress I will wear is among these dresses. Can you guess which one it is??? (Tip: unfortunately, it is now a little (okay, not only a little, it is much more expensive than it was a few weeks ago when I bought it.) Apparently they offered the dress to a special sales price at that time.
