Happy Saturday! And also congratulations to the Howard University Class of 2012! When choosing attire for a graduation, its always best to be comfortable yet still cute. Below I've compiled four outfits that I thought diploma-worthy as graduation season begins! Enjoy!
Being that we are fully into the swing of the Spring/Summer season, it is time to bring out florals! I love this dress because it is bold and colorful; it an easily be dressed up or down. Accompanying the dress, I have a pair of simple tan wedges and and woven clutch with gold attachments. The dress is rather daring on its own, therefore not any accessories are needed.
Maxi dresses are always cute and comfy in the summer. This maxi is strapless and has a tribal print which makes it unique. I decided to pair a pair or snakeskin/tan 'Sam Edelman' sandals with the dress because it gives a relaxed feel. The statement necklace will give the outfit a "pop", so it isn't just comfortable but also fashionable!
Stripes in the summer give a sort-of nautical feel, which I love being from the East Coast! This dress, black and white with stripes, is pretty plain on its own, which leaves room for bold pieces! Adding color to the outfit, the turquoise cut-out pumps bring a little flair in the mix. A simple yet adorable accessory, the tan bowling bag is perfect for throwing in a gift or two for a new grad! The bib necklace is completes the outfit as a simple piece of jewelry.
For those who aren't fans of dresses, this floral romper is a cute alternative! Paired with a brightly colored yellow clutch and simple tan sandals, this outfit acts as a casual look to support any grad! The bangles add some pizazz to the fit also as a simple accessory.
Congratulations to everyone in the Class of 2012!
