Whether you’re graduating from high school or college, choosing the perfect graduation dress will have you feeling confident and ready to take on the world.
Graduation day is full of pictures and parties, so make sure to follow these tips to help you pick a beautiful dress.

Check your gown

Before going for dress shopping, try on your graduation gown to get an idea of where it falls on you. Most gowns fall below the knee, so you may want to opt for a dress that’s knee-length or shorter.

To ensure you’re buying a dress that’s the right length, take a picture with your gown on and use it while shopping.

Buy something you’ll wear again

Although it can be tempting to save money and throw on one of the dresses in your closet, finding a graduation dress you can rewear isn’t impossible. Casual dresses can be accessorized. For spring, consider trying floral print, white lace, or off-the-shoulder dresses.

Make sure it’s comfortable

The last thing anyone wants to happen on their graduation day, is to feel uncomfortable. Remember, you’ll probably be sitting or standing for long periods of time, so make sure that you dress accordingly.

Look good, but stay modest

You’ll most likely be asked to pose in tons of photos, so you’ll definitely want to look your best. That being said, you’ll also have to walk the stage in front of your class and spend time with your family.

Make sure you don’t choose a dress that’s too revealing. If you’re unsure about a dress, ask friends or look online for grad dress ideas.

Try before you buy

In order to choose a dress that’s perfect for your day, try on multiple dresses before picking your favorite. Putting on a few dresses before you buy anything, will help you determine how they fit and decide if you need to size up or down.
Following these tips will allow you to feel gorgeous and confident while providing you with the best memories on your special day.
