The late-night studies, early morning lectures, the struggle to prepare their last-minute notes, planning meetups with friends, and club meetings all come to the forefront. The moments they can cherish for their life. It is kind of mixed emotions, the grief of leaving your friends behind and the alma matter; with the excitement of walking new avenues and celebrating your achievements in the form of your ‘graduation ceremony.’
Apparently, while you are graduating your college, gives an exciting and exuberating feeling. Of course, you won’t yearn for those stressful college days, but it will be bittersweet as you recall the memories and cherished moments with old friends. Most of you are busy wrapping up your study for the final exams and longing for that well-deserved break. Along with all the hustle and bustle, graduation ceremony hits with lots of worries and stresses that pop up in every student’s mind. Graduation is the most important event for many who have come a long way by putting a lot of hard work leading to this day.
Graduation is an event in which everyone wants to look and feel their best. As much as it is about looking your best, students also feel their best because of how much this day means to them. Even for such a momentous occasion, you still want to be at ease and make the best of every moment.
Provided below, are a few tips to help you select the right graduation dress for your big day:
The first and foremost thing that is required for your graduation ceremony is a proper dress. Your graduation dress should be selected in coordination with the graduation gown. The style of your dress should be according to the style of your gown and vice versa. If you are going for any solid color, white and basic black are the easiest to select and are readily available everywhere. They look classy, and by merely adding mesh, crochet, or fluff, it can turn out terrific. These two colors never fail, though you can go for any bright color. If not a solid color, then many gowns are available in different patterns, like polka dots or florals. Graduation gowns should be comfortable as well and those who do not feel relaxed in the gowns, they can go for a top and a skirt.
It is the most cherished event of a student’s life, and the dress needs to be selected sensibly, keeping your comfort in mind. You don’t want to turn out confused in all the pictures and feel discomfort all the time.
Wear comfortable shoes
Smart and comfortable footwear at such an occasion should definitely be your choice. I cannot emphasize enough the need to wear comfortable footwear at the graduation ceremony. Special care should be taken while deciding on what to wear in shoes since it is not advisable to wear high heels and slippery shoes. The commencement march on the stage should not become an accident, rather a memorable moment.
Flaunt a heavy makeup look
As much as it’s your day, you have the right to go out in your makeup. The key is to know your face. Graduation being such an important occasion, it is OK to go overboard in your dressing and style. You can wear bold red-colored lipstick without further ado, which can complement the graduation gown and dress. Of course, how can you miss the essentials, mascara, bronzer, foundation, eye makeup, setting spray, and highlighter brush. It is the day of your achievements, and you have full rights to create a groundbreaking look. So, go for it!
Style for the paparazzi
With the hype, glamor, and excitement all around, how can we ignore the social media craze in this era? Afterall this big day will be on all social media channels- Facebook, Instagram stories, Snapchat and maybe live feeds too. It is a digital age, where we don’t need the paparazzi to bring it in public. This is another reason to dress wisely, not to impress others but to get dressed for themselves. It’s your day, style up and groom in a manner keeping the look for the camera. It’s important to apply the makeup knowing, how it’ll turn out in the stills as well as the video, which will be a recorded memoir keepsake of the day.
Spend your money on worthwhile items
You may find great deals on the dresses around. Don’t be fooled to go for a cheap one, and end up regretting later. The price tag should not hinder your graduation shopping. Your aim to get an attire that tells the story of class, comfort, and confidence that you achieved in your life. Spend money on something that is worth it and does not put you in a difficult situation at the last minute.
Wear your outfit the day before
No matter how carefully you planned your dress, you should never leave anything up to chance. It is important and wise at the same time, to wear your outfit a date before and do reiki. Just imagine if your favorite graduation dress is tight from the waist, and you get to know only when you are all set to go sitting in a car. Or your new shoe heel breaks off at the venue. Remember, ‘a stitch in time saves nine.’ Check for photography as well by taking a click or two yourself. Here I would add, a prior dress up check will definitely save your special day.
Wear your success
It is not all about your dress, shoes and makeup or hairstyle. You need to wear your achievements and pride on your graduation day. The most important thing about this day is that you enjoy every moment.
