What to wear on your big day.
Publish date:

Graduation is fast approaching for the Class of 2017. In the midst of preparing for finals and finishing up projects, what to wear to graduation is the last thing on our minds right now. (Even though we'd rather be online-shopping than studying.) 

If you already know what you're wearing (maybe from our past posts on the subject?), that's great! If you don't, that is the reason this post exists. Here are three looks under $100 that will inspire you to create your own graduation look on commencement day. 

Look 1 - $81.17

In many colleges, women traditionally wore white to graduation. For this outfit idea, I followed that custom and chose a classic white dress. I styled the dress with patterned wedges, dainty jewelry, and a bold red lip for some color. 

Look 2 - $87.26

On the other hand, you can defy tradition and wear pants. For this outfit idea, I paired a sleeveless blouse with suit pants. I added the watch to keep the look classy and the ear cuffs and heels for some edge. 

Look 3 - $92.07

You can also wear your school colors and show some pride. Because my school colors are red and black, I incorporated both into this look. (You can do this with your school colors.)  

I styled a red dress with black heeled sandals and red nail polish and bedazzled it with accessories like drop earrings and a clutch.
