Dressy How To Spring

#ReaderRequest- Best Graduation & Spring Dresses

Ever since I started the free styling service, I have received a bunch of requests asking to suggest some graduation (both for grad walk and for attending the ceremony as a guest) and spring dresses. So, thought I should do a post with all the suggestions I’ve sent them. Here are some of my favorite graduation and spring dresses.

Graduation Dresses

A lot of the dresses are very spring appropriate and can be easily worn to any occasion (not just graduation).

If you are doing the grad walk, first of all Congrats girl! you did it. For the outfit, there is no hard and fast rule that you have to stick to a black or sheath dress (like I did for my graduation, without knowing, silly me!). Moreover, you are not going to office, it’s your graduation (duhhh!!),you gotta have fun!. I would recommend a fit & flare or a printed dress that is both cute and dressy.

As it’s Spring- a lot of the dresses I picked are inspired from spring prints and patterns like floral’s, eyelet, lace, pastels, and yellow
