Spring 2014 Style Inspiration: What To Wear To A Graduation
By Danielle Nicole

Graduation season is just around the corner! And whether you’re the graduate or an attendee, today’s style suggestions are for you.

First up is Nikki who writes, “Looking for some ideas on what to wear to my college graduation in May. I’m 40 and don’t want to do anything too young. I was thinking of doing an outfit centered around the neon yellow Valentino Rockstuds. However, I realize getting those shoes wouldn’t be fiscally responsible of me, lol, so I’m looking for some cheaper ideas. Any help on an outfit would be greatly appreciated!”

If your heart is set on sporting the Valentino Rockstuds, compliment these wardrobe favorites with a printed Peter Pilotto silk dress and a Kate Spade neon yellow shoulder bag.

To subdue this vibrant ensemble, kick off the Valentinos and slip into a sleek white pump.  A beaded necklace, deco stud earrings, and a soft beauty palette complete this graduation day look.

For a second wardrobe option, dress up in a belted floral frock with a sassy pair of laced up sandals.

Nakira is also set to walk across the stage this spring. She writes, “I’m graduating from college in May! I’m having a big fabulous party and I don’t have a clue on what I want to wear! Please help!!!

    Hello, I have been requesting for this all month and there seems to be no plus size options. Every time that this is done it seems as if this site tends to disregard the plus size people as if the owner is not. It would be greatly appreciated if you could add options for plus size females that are graduating. Thank you and have a great day.

    I absolutely love these looks!

    These are all amazing….especially the 1st and 3rd looks. Will it be possible to do a ‘more affordable’ version of this because as much as i want to look amazing on my graduation, i certainly wont be spending more than $200 on a dress? Thanks in advance :D

    I feel like the FBD folks have stated SEV-ER-AL times that these are to serve as inspiration for you to go out to the stores that are affordable to you and find something along those lines.

    Also– isn’t it women* that are graduating, and not females? I thought female was an adjective…..
