A friend wrote in recently to ask our help in finding a floral dress for a morning graduation. Here is our tried and true advice. “For what to wear to graduation, choose a dress in a blended fabric of cotton, silk or linen, to insure a fresh and wrinkle free all day. It is classic look that will put you at the head of the class for all graduation ceremonies. Remember to check the weather and plan accordingly. Always carry a wrap or cardigan for breezy shady spots, sunglasses, and a hat to protect you from the sun. Low heeled pumps or platform wedges are easy to maneuver in style for ceremonies on the grass, and most likely, there will be a fair amount of walking throughout the campus. A roomy handbag is essential for everything you need and to have room for the extras like the program, hat, sunscreen, sunglasses, and a bottle of water.”
We picked our blossoms at SAKS.com for a selection of the best and brightest bouquets. Each one of these dresses could go from daytime ceremony to night time celebration with a simple change into heels or strappy sandals, and a small clutch.
