Advice for What to Wear on Graduation Day

Graduation day is a significant day that you will look back on later in life. It’s a day to celebrate your achievements and acknowledge the hard work you’ve put into your studies. While there will be plenty of things to think about on the day, something you may well want to plan in advance is what you will wear. Of course, you want to look and feel good while being comfortable. Here is some advice to help you decide. 

Comfort is Key

Graduation days can be super long with lots of standing and sitting for long periods. As such, you really don’t want to be wearing anything uncomfortable or awkward. If you are choosing between various clothing items and certain ones are a bit of a pain to wear, then remove these from the options. 

The Gowns are Big 

When you are considering different outfit options, it’s important to remember that you will be wearing a gown all day which is long and heavy. Therefore, your outfit will only partially be seen. This may well mean you’ll want to wear something longer to make sure it’s seen, and shouldn’t be too concerned about the top half of your outfit. 

Footwear is Crucial

The above two points mean that your shoes are very important. They will be seen more than the rest of your outfit, but you should ensure they are comfortable to wear for the whole day.
