You did it! After years of struggling through all-nighters writing assignments, that “group project” that you ended up completing on your own, and in the last few months online learning, you’re finally collecting that diploma you’ve worked so hard for. Congrats girl! The only thing left to do now is find the perfect outfit to help you celebrate in style and make sure that all eyes are on you as you strut your stuff across that stage come graduation day!
We’re huge fans of the classic wrap dress, especially when it comes to looking for a truly comfortable style that you can wear all day! The tie at the waist of these dresses really pulls in the waistline to create a natural hourglass shape, while the typically flowy material of the skirt skims over the stomach area instead of clinging to it as a more fitted dress would!
If you know us, you know just how much we love our printed midis! Whether you’re going bold and playing with bright mixed prints or sweet and feminine with a ditsy floral print, this is the perfect option to make sure you’ll stand out in style in those group photographs! This also gives you plenty of options when it comes to shoes, go for a heel in a neutral tone or classic gold sandals to let the dress be a statement piece in your outfit, or go for a pop of colour in your heels by matching your shoes to a colour in the dress to pull the whole outfit together!
Mini dress gals, did you really think we would forget about you? We’re loving this cute mini skater dress from Ivy Lane! The puff sleeves are always such a flattering style that have a really slimming effect on the arms, while the tie at the waist draws attention away from the stomach area and towards the waistline!
A fitted dress doesn’t have to mean bodycon, just look at this flattering midi from Ivy Lane! The sweetheart neckline is one of our faves, the perfect way to create the illusion of curves, while the chiffon material at the bottom is a few inches longer than the lining on the inside of the dress and gives the dress a flirty feel while still being 100% appropriate. The lightweight fitted material also means that the dress won’t look bulky in any way or create bumps in the fabric under your gown!
If you’re not a dress girl, we’ve got you covered too! This jumpsuit from Closet London is the perfect way to celebrate in style while still being true to yourself! It has a tie at the waist to add a bit more structure to the outfit while the tailored legs make this jumpsuit the perfect choice for anyone who wants to feel empowered for their well deserved celebrations!
