i've never been to a high school graduation before..
so can someone help me on what kind of dress i'm supposed to wear?
like show me examples so i have an idea?
AbbeyMarie
If your school has white grad gowns then I would choose a white sun dress (most people do wear a about knee length sundress type thing) Then heels or dress sandals.

I actually wore dark denim skinny jeans and black heels (was the only one with jeans but people said it worked really well) So if you aren't a dress person like me you can do that.
princessx143
yeah the girls wear white gowns i think. idk, we havent gotten them yet. i think we're getting them this monday.

but yeah what stores should i check for sundresses?
i might try to go to the mall sometime before graduation so yeah.
Blyat
Any white dress
I had the same problem but i found one

this is what im wearing
princessx143
ohhh okay.
so how about one of these? would these be okay?
(one of them is similar to yours :))



Blyat
dont go for the first one, that will definitely see through (though its a cute dress)

Cause I have a white graduation gown too, The dark blue might be a tad sketchy. I would stick with white or some tone of a light colour imo

The white material on graduation dresses are thin
princessx143
k so light colors. how about these?



^idk if thats considered dark or light since its dark on top but the bottom has like white & pinks in it?
Blyat
No TOO BRIGHT
go with white honestly thats the only thing
or an ivory or some LIGHT, you don't want BRIGHT


these might be better



princessx143

something like that?

if not then what stores can i go to for dresses? :/
these dresses are from hollister & abercrombie.
AbbeyMarie
Honestly go for a dress that you will wear more then once don't concentrate on the whole white aspect. Every dress posted so far would be fine.
princessx143
oh okay :)
would any of those dresses i posted be good with heels?
and would curling my hair be good? maybe that way it'll look like its dressed up instead of being sorta casual like it's just a regular day?
AbbeyMarie
Is your ceremony inside or out.

I like the last dress Uso posted
Blyat
its your graduation

Go crazy!

Im thinking about kind of some bad-ass shoes to wear.
princessx143
the ceremonys inside.
and for shoes im thinking about maybe some of those wedges from charlotte russe.
they're pretty high though. so im not too sure about shoes either.
but thats easy to find. its just the dress im not too sure of :X
AbbeyMarie
Then curl it. Just keep your hat in mind. Since it's inside you don't have to worry about wind/grass or any of that nonsense. You are really free to do what you want.

Oh my goodness, it's not prom. Just throw on a light-coloured dress, make sure your hair looks presentable, put on a bit of makeup, heels and call it a day.

Girls, bah.

are you attending or are you in one?
princessx143

princessx143
i don't think of it as a prom either. i just didn't know what to wear.
i don't want to dress too formal while everyone else is dressed casual.
or dressing to casual while everyone is dressed formal.
i was just wasn't sure what to wear

It should be more casual than formal dress. As others have said, just wear a light-colored sundress, preferably one that doesn't have a brightly colored/patterned bottom part. Most of the ones you posted have torsos that are okay; it's just the bottom halves that are too bright.

What colour is your cap and gown? Ours is white...which is probably why Uso is picking out lighter colours. But if yours is a darker colour than the brighter dresses might work.

My graduation gown was blue, but a lot of people wore light-colored dresses anyway. I remember there being a fair amount of girls wearing bright ones, though.
princessx143
girls cap and gowns are white.
i'm going to the mall tomorrow to find a dress.
i found this one i really liked:
http://www.charlotterusse.com/product/inde...oductId=3901203

that okay?
then with maybe black pumps or open toe heels or something?
or should i go with wedges?

i'm not too sure if they will have this in stores though :/

Yes, that's a good one. Any of those shoe types would be fine; open-toed shoes would look best, IMO.
princessx143
so when i went to the mall they didnt have it. of course :/
but i did find something similar :) hows this?


im just wondering, what color shoes would go best with this? white?
because at the mall all the white shoes i liked didnt have my size..
and so my mom wanted me to get black.
im not really sure if black goes?

and the dark color part of the dress is like navy blue, not black.
so thats why i dont think black goes.

Then try to find navy blue shoes with a bit of a heel. If you can't, go with white.
