It's DS graduation next week and trying to decide what to wear Any thoughts on this combination? I'm 51 size 14-16 5'4"" Dress is sleeveless and I'm not too self conscious of arms if its a hot day Just wonder if its a bit too wedding like What shoes or sandals would go with it too?
Thank you! I won't be wearing tights - my sandals are more strappy than gladiator but will check what DD has I haven't got a pashmina but how about a white lacy shrug type thing in linen If its a nice day won't need anything Glad you like the dresses though!
We went to DS1's graduation this week and I would say both of your dresses would suit the occasion.
I don't wear dresses unless I can wear boots or opaques so opted for a smart mango top and trousers in a very cool material. I was worried that I wouldn't be dressy enough and had visions of everybody else in wedding-type finery, but I would say it was more smart casual than anything else.
The graduation hall does get very warm though! Another thing to consider when choosing your shoes is that you might have to walk over grass.
I went to my daughters graduation this week and wore a bodycon black dress with a pair of black high heeled sandals. I wore a little cardigan but didn't need it. There was a lot of walking and standing around for photo taking etc for about 5 hours so make sure your shoes are comfy.
