I am sitting here with the family thinking about what should I wear to my niece’s high school graduation next week.
Graduations are milestones in people’s lives and being a part of it is a very proud moment. But picking what to wear at the ceremony is no small task so I looked around for some help. Graduations are lengthy and a bit crowded so pick outfits that are comfortable. You should go with semi-formal, business or business casual attire. You don’t want to just go in a t-shirt and shorts. Graduation pictures will be remembered for forever, let’s look at some outfit choices for everyone.
Choosing an outfit for someone else’s graduation is like picking a wedding dress. However, you don’t want to offend anyone or be refused admission because of inappropriate dress code. Keep in mind to dress modestly and be aware of any dress code restrictions. Most schools are very flexible as they want grad’s parents to surely attend but some might not be. Just ask the grad about the school’s dress code policy to be on the safe side.
First of all, Congratz!!! You made it. Your outfit wouldn’t be really visible when you’re on stage collecting your degree. But, you can open up your gown after the ceremony for pictures. These would be the pictures that would be remembered forever.
Guys can wear a white dress shirt with black trousers and top it up with a good tie preferably black. Girls can go with a pretty blouse paired with a ruffled skirt. At the end of the day, it’s your time to shine, so make sure you’re looking smart in your outfit (wink).
Men don’t seem to have a lot of choices when it comes to different types of outfits. But its keep it formal and casual so don’t do in a t-shirt, shorts, and flip flops. Men should wear either dark jeans, khaki or trousers. And pair it with a jacket or blazer with a neutral color shirt underneath. Don’t forget to take care of your hair, be well shaved and have a good haircut before the ceremony.
If you’re a parent, you should aim for business attire. You can surely follow the guide above. But since you’re parent, you can also go with a suit. Suits are always an appropriate choice for graduation ceremonies.
Women seem to have lots of choices when it comes to picking graduation outfits. You can go with a skater dress or a bright frock. These are quite light and easy to carry around. A pretty blouse paired with a pencil or midi skirt can’t go wrong at all. Adding a blazer to it might be a great add on as well. And as always you can never go wrong with jumpsuits. Going in a casual jumpsuit would make you look great in those grad pictures.
Don’t forget to take care of your facials and hair cuts ahead of time.
Quick note, women are more likely to get in trouble for dress code violations of school policy. I can’t stress this enough but it would be awful to be rejected admission at the gate. It’s always better to check in with any policies that school has.
It’s very obvious but you should definitely avoid flip-flops, sandals, sneakers, and spaghetti straps. Guys can choose to go in a pair of loafers or other casual shoes. Ladies can choose between heels or a flat shoe. Remember to keep your shoes cleaned and polished the night before.
People often like to wear their high school or college rings for pictures, you can wear one of those if you have one too. Mothers can add on a good looking necklace that will be right for the ceremony. Avoid wearing sunglasses for indoor ceremonies and while taking pictures. Other than that, watches and bracelets look great for all.
I was going to a pop concert yesterday and I had no idea what I should wear. If you are like me then are you are in the right place. I looked around so many places and compiled what are the right choices for anyone to wear when they are attending a pop concert.
Concerts, in general, can have many people so it’s best to wear something not too heavy. Wear something that’s comfortable and easy to carry around. Guys should go with shorts and a graphic printed T-shirt or a button down. Girls can pick a lightweight dress, comfortable romper or a crop top will be great.
If you’re a die heart fan of the performer. Then you don’t have to be looking around for suggestion. Going with the performer’s merchandise T-shirt would do it. You can pair the T-shirt with shorts or jeans depending on what suits your style.
Jumpsuits will be a good choice for girls as well. They can be worn on any occasion and it will be perfectly fine. This can be combined with a pair of sandals and your favorite earrings.
As there are going to be many people around you the last thing you want to worry about is not being able to walk comfortably. Wearing high heels might not be the right choice. Wear sturdy shoes that will look great and not come in the middle of dancing.
Guys can always grab a good denim jacket on top of their T-shirts.
Try to avoid marble and pale blue, these end up showing sweat. Go for patterns or dark shades of navy.
If you’re not sure what to wear because it’s winter and it’s chilly outside, no worries. Wear layers that can be easily carried on hand or tied around your waist. Something like a hoodie or coat depending on the temperature. Carrying gloves and scarf is also good as they can be easily pocketed or tied around.
Since it’s cold it’s better to wear long sleeves and jeans both for guys and girls. Girls can also pick up some boots as they will look perfect in the cold weather.
And finally, don’t overthink wear comfortable good looking outfit. Let your personality shine too so wear what represents you. For shoes, wear something that will let you enjoy the concert and listen to live music in peace.
