Congratulations to the class of 2018!! Whether it be high school or college, it’s time to celebrate! If you’re attending a graduation and/or graduation party this summer, we know how proud you are of the recent grad, but we also know there might be something else on your mind… what will you be wearing to the festivities? We want you to find an outfit that you are comfortable in while sitting throughout the graduation, while hugging the recent grad, while jumping up and down trying to get photos, and of course, while celebrating at the grad party. If you’ve been pulling a classic student move and procrastinating, we’ve got you covered. We’ve prepared a few graduation party looks that are now available at La Ree!
Pomp and Circumstance Style
It’s okay to admit it, you want to be comfortable while sitting waiting for graduation speeches to end so you can leap up and snap a photo of the grad walking across the stage. And you’re going to be sitting for a while, because you got there early to get a good seat, of course. Long sleeves and paired with a long maxi skirt will keep you warm or cool no matter the weather.
Wearing: Vanessa Seward Florentin Blouse, Isabel Marant Belinda Wrap Skirt, ATP Carmen Heel, Jerome Dreyfuss Popoche Clutch, and the Jewels By Piper Coin Necklace
Dinner Celebration Style
Headed out to a formal dinner with the grad’s family? You’ll need something that can be dressed up or down depending how formal the dinner will be. Plus, restaurants can be cold! Be sure to choose a dress that can be layered with a nice jacket or sweater. Add some sparkle with gold flats and stunning subtle jewelry.
Wearing: Ulla Johnson Penninah Dress, Marla Aaron Baby Lock Necklace, Marla Aaron Curb Chain Bracelet, Ampersand as Apostrophe Navy X Pouch and the Ancient Greek Metallic Slides.
Backyard Barbecue Style
What goes better with graduations than barbecues? If you’re attending a backyard graduation party, a fun summer dress paired with wedges (no sinking into the grass!) is the perfect style combo. Barbecues can be hot. Wearing a light and loose dress will ensure that you enjoy every moment of the party. Then, pair with a favorite jean jacket as the sun goes down.
Wearing: Raquel Allegra Check Shirt Dress, Ampersand as Apostrophe Sideways Tote, ATP Lecola Heel
Brunch Celebration Style
If you’re traveling for a grad, you’ll want to get as much time with them as you can. Brunch the day after the graduation is likely in order. This look is perfect for brunch because it is easy to pack, easy to throw on and looks great no matter where brunch is (at home or at a restaurant). Plus, if you’re hopping on a plane right after brunch, switch out the heels for flats, and your’e ready to fly.
Wearing: Giada Forte Silk Dress, Le Kasha Long Cardi, Isabel Marant Snake Heels, Jewels by Piper Diamond Shaker Necklace
We hope these looks have you covered so you won’t be pulling an all nighter packing the perfect looks. If you’re looking for more pre-graduation prep, come by the store and we’ll be happy to help!
