Everyone wants to look great on their graduation day. It’s one of those life events that will be photographed by everyone you know.

Putting together the right outfit starts with a stunning graduation dress. Then you can find cute graduation shoes, jewelry, and figure out your hair and makeup.

It can all feel a little overwhelming. To help you narrow down those dress choices check out some of all time favorites below.

Maxi Dresses

If you want something flowy and comfortable a maxi dress is the way to go. Just remember your graduation down won’t completely cover it so you may want to avoid that bright red dress if your robes are black or dark blue.

Midi Graduation Dresses

Honestly, I think the midi length is absolutely perfect for a graduation dress. It will usually fall just above the gown so you won’t see it as you walk across the stage. They’re comfortable, look great on anyone, and the styles are plentiful.

Skater Dresses

Like a midi, the skater dress is a fantastic length.

Bodycon Commencement Dresses

Graduation robes definitely aren’t the most attractive outfit ever invented. So I often recommend wearing a bodycon dress underneath them so as not to add to the poof that a grad robe already gives you. Plus, bodycon dresses will look great in pictures once you ditch the rob.
