Whether you’re the one donning the robe and mortarboard or you’re a guest at the celebrations, graduation is the perfect excuse to dress your best as you toast to your loved one’s academic achievements. The monumental date in the diary is a day full of activities, from the main event to post graduation dinner and dancing, so you need to be as prepared as possible. From the gifts to give and what you should be wearing, we’re giving you a go-to guide to graduation season.
Depending on the season of graduation, you’ll need to be mindful of the fabrics that you’re wearing. If you’re graduating in the height of summer (and it’s actually warm!) you’ll want to avoid wearing a jacket underneath your robe – noone wants to over heat while waiting to take to the stage. For warmer temperatures choose linen, cotton and seersucker. Team a light shirt, smart trousers and brogues for a staple day to evening outfit that can be worn for a range of occasions.
