Styling Tips for Graduation Day



Graduation day is a fantastic opportunity to celebrate your entire academic career and future. It is a time to reflect on what you have done and all the potential of what you can do in the days to come. Most importantly, it is a time to live in the moment, enjoy being with friends and family and most of all celebrate yourself! What better way to celebrate than to party Faviana style? Your cap and gown might be monochromatic and boring, but that doesn’t mean your outfit underneath has to be too. Allow me to guide you through style tips for your big day!

Know Your Plans

First thing is first; you need to know your party plans for after the ceremony so you can dress appropriately for the event. What you wear to the graduation ceremony might be different than what you wear on graduation night. Did you have two dresses you just couldn’t choose between? Doing a quick change will allow you to rock them both! Know your plans so you can be prepared and in style the entire night. 

During & After the Ceremony

Something short and sweet like Faviana style 7851 is perfect for your ceremony and dinner party. Accessorize with studs for your ceremony and dress up your dinner look with dangling earrings. Add a cuff bracelet or a few knuckle rings to give your look a little extra sass. Try to find nude heels or a sophisticated wedge to finish your look. Oh and we can’t forget about backup! A pair of chic flats to carry in your bag is a must. Your feet will thank you later. Now, just add your cap and gown and you are ready to pick up your diploma.


Why change now? You barely got the chance to enjoy this dress and let’s face it, you didn’t get to show it off to everyone or get that Instagram worthy picture. With knowing your plans, you can find a dress appropriate for both day and evening events. I am all for multiple outfits in a day, but let your graduation dress have a chance to make its debut.

The After Party

If you are hosting or attending a party with your graduating class at a venue, something like Faviana style 7860 would be perfect! It is chic yet sophisticated and will be sure to make a statement with its pop of color. The after party is the ideal time to have fun and take risks with our wardrobe. Style this dress with dainty gold jewelry and a lucite clutch.

If that is not the case and you are going for a small gathering to reminisce about all of your favorite high school memories on a beach with your friends, you can still look stylish (always). Throw on a cute romper or flowy dress and pair it with some strappy sandals and enjoy the night and feeling of accomplishment.

Remember the Golden Rule

Choosing accessories is just as important as choosing the perfect dress because they could either compliment or outshine your dress. The goal is to choose accessories that will make a statement in a good way. Choosing accessories depends greatly on the style of your dress; however, the “less is more” rule ALWAYS applies.

Dainty gold jewelry will look elegant against your skin, while the nude pumps will make you appear taller. Simple, yet sophisticated; you will definitely be noted for having the best style at graduation!

Many graduates host their party on a weekends following the date of graduation so basically you are going to be booked with graduations every weekend until you leave for college. When future graduation parties start booking up make sure to visit Glam&Gowns for more style and beauty tips that will leaving you feeling and looking nothing but fabulous.

Congrats Grad!
