Style Inspiration: What to Wear to a College or High School Graduation
By Claire

So we’ve already covered what a lucky grad should wear to their graduation. But what about the attendees?
Danielle says, “I will be attending my daughter’s graduation in June. I’m very young to have a daughter graduate, so I dont want to look old–I want to look young and fresh!” Erica adds, “My boyfriend is graduating from college, and I have been racking my brain on what would make the best impression on his friends and family. I want to be appropriate, but sexy!”
Well, I have a few ideas. You ready?
The first look starts with a strapless blue Rebecca Minkoff dress, accented by a sweet pair of Miu Miu Gingham taffeta slingbacks (for the record, I am obsessed with these shoes):

The frock’s strapless silhouette is a little saucy, and the blue will help you stand out from the crowd. Add conservative accents like a pearl necklace and earrings:

If you want to play with a little color (or go for more demure), start with a turquoise shift, and offset the look with pink accents:

Finish the look with a quilted bag, Prada baroque sunglasses, and a spritz of Miss Dior Cherie:

Lastly, if you want to cool it on color, yet make a splash with a print, this Michael Michael Kors zebra print sheath should do the trick:

Complete with neutral accessories, like an ASOS leather portfolio clutch and Steve by Steve Madden T-Strap Sandals:

I clearly tend to get carried away with these things…
At any rate, what do you think?
Would you rock any of the above?

    All great looks Claire but I would go with the first one. I’m a sucker for a blue and those Miu Miu slingbacks are gorgeous! They’ve got a little ‘Mad Men flavour’.
