Graduation season is upon us. While most parents will be thinking of the ceremony day, if you are a final year student, you know better, it’s all about Graduation Ball. Or at least outfit wise.
My Graduation Ball or Grad Ball as its simply known is in a few weeks time, and I can’t express how excited I am. I got my dress sorted about a month ago, but I know plenty of people haven’t, so if that one of you, then I’ve put together some outfit ideas to help you chose.
The Statement. This is for the ones who love to make an impact. The ones who will guarantee to get talked about it. While it is quite simplistic- it’s all about limited but key pieces. This gorgeous dress by Alice McCall at ASOS is super stylish, but vamp it up with bold red. You can’t beat show stopper lips- in all their form! Shoes, bag, and your God given ones!

The 1920’s Vintage. No one can deny right now 1920s fashion is hot. The Great Gatsby influence is everywhere, and why shouldn’t it be, it’s classy and sexy. This is a great outfit especially if your Graduation Ball is more, longer dress attire. These shoes are perfect, as you don’t want anything chunky. It’s all about the dainty not chunky excess. However the Pièce de résistance is this head piece. I’ve had my eye on it for ages (I may even wear it to my Grad Ball) but unlike headbands, it won’t give you hat hair. Finally who could forget the moment Daisy came to Jays wearing that stunning Prada cape. Emulate her style with this less pricey Prada lookalike cutesy of Coast for only £35.

The minute I clapped my eyes on this dress I just wanted it. Only problem is I haven’t got anywhere to wear it to (Anyone want to invite me to a swanky party?). A little black dress can never fail, especially if you dress it on the side of glamorous. Think old school Hollywood glamour. Soft set waves swept over one shoulder, smouldering red lips, and the classic cat eyeliner flick. Keep accessories simple, with just a hint of colour, and let the whole ensemble do the work, rather than one piece.
Dress- Miss Selfridge
Clutch- &Other Stories
You can tell it’s getting close to the end of exams, as I’m getting more and more into Graduation mode. I can’t wait to slip on my dress, sashay into the venue, and dance the night away with my girlfriends; champagne in hand. Any excuse to put my glad rags on.
Let me know if any of you decide to wear any of these dresses, I’d love to hear what you think. If not, what are you wearing to Graduation? (Or any other event coming up). Drop me a comment below, I love hearing from you.
