What to Wear to Graduation (at any price!)

What to Wear to Graduation (at any price point!) top image

It’s full-on graduation mode today on Glitter & Spice. My little sister is graduating from the University of Texas next month (any other longhorns out there??), so figuring out what to wear to graduation has been at the top of my to-do list. Even though I’m not graduating.

Just because you’re graduating (or you’re attending a friend or family member’s graduation), that doesn’t mean that you need to spend a pretty penny. Today, I’ve rounded up some of my favorite graduation-ready summer dresses at a bunch of different price points: under $100, between $100 and $200, and even over $200. Every dress is under $300 and has a timeless silhouette – making it perfect to scoop up this year and wear for summers to come! Keep scrolling for my full guide on what to wear to graduation!

Personally, I’m pretty smitten with number two, number six, and number seven. Whether you’re graduating or just cheering on from the stands, I highly recommend going sleeveless. Even in Ithaca, graduation was super always toasty and I definitely regretted wearing long sleeves under my graduation gown. A) it was warm, B) I was trapped in a non-air conditioned room with over 200 people, C) I was already wearing long sleeves. Just a total regret all over the place.

For lil J’s graduation (yes, that’s what I call my little sister… she hates it), I plan on wearing something colorful and comfy (because you’re sitting for forever). This dress I posted on Instagram (which will be up on the blog soon!) would be absolute perfection for graduation – it was so comfy!! I’ll definitely keep y’all posted on what I decide to wear for lil J’s big day!
