While your hair may not be a part of your outfit, it’s definitely a factor in the whole look. It might not seem like a  big deal, but you’re going to want to plan out your hair too. Since you will be wearing a cap, think of some ideas for wearing your hair down. The options are endless so you can get as creative as you want! If you want to keep it simple, curling or straightening is always a safe option!


Picking out the perfect accessories is a small, but important detail to the outfit. From earrings to necklaces to rings, they matter! Make sure they match your outfit and gown, but also make sure they stand out and show off your style. Accessories are the most important fashion rule!


If you like dresses, this is the moment for you to shine! Dresses and graduation go hand in hand. One tip: if your gown is a light color, make sure to not wear a dark colored dress. Also, don’t forget to try on your dress under your gown when going through your closet, to ensure it isn’t longer than the gown. Summer dresses are the classic go-to option!

Dress Alternatives

If wearing dresses isn’t your thing, don’t worry! From jumpsuits to rompers to slacks, your options are endless! Jumpsuits are the next best thing to dresses, and rompers are even better, especially if its a hot day! Wearing wide-leg dress pants and slacks are also a good option if you prefer pants. 


Shoes are the most important part of your graduation day outfit. Since you will be wearing your graduation gown, people will only see your shoes as you cross the stage. From heels to sandals to dress shoes, you have a lot of options to express yourself with. Make sure your shoes represent your style and will make a statement!

Finishing Touches

When getting ready to walk the stage, you want to be picture-perfect. Add some finishing touches with unique makeup that represents who you are! A soft-glam look is great, not too wild choice for that special day! Add anything else you deem necessary, and your finishing touches will tie the whole look together!
