How to Dress For Graduation — Even When It's Not Your Big Day

May 22 2014 - 2:30pm

Every week, we bring you the best shoppable fashion and lifestyle stories from the editors at InStyle.com, including these summery graduation dress picks [1].

Graduation season is upon us! If you have a graduating senior in your life, chances are you'll be heading to a campus in the near, near future. Whether the ceremony is for a high school, an undergrad, or a graduate student, it'll mark a major milestone; however, as an attendee, it's not your time to shine.

The goal is to pick a fitting frock that errs on the side of demure — the sartorial equivalent to dressing for a baby or bridal shower or wedding [2]. But that's not to say you can't have fun! While the soon-to-be graduates will be cloaked in uniform caps and gowns, you can show some support for your diploma-receiving sibling, friend, or relative with a celebratory look.
