Whether you’re accepting a diploma or participating proudly from the audience, these frocks will have you looking your smartest.
Jack by BB Dakota Midi Dress
Sophisticated and sweet, the flirty keyhole back is offset by a demure hemline that hits just below the knee for a flattering fit.
To buy: $54, amazon.com.
Express V-Neck Asymmetrical Dress
An asymmetrical hem is a great way to subtly show off a little—but not too much—leg. (And a bonus? Graduated hems, like this one, have an elongating effect, too.)
To buy: $60, express.com.
BCBGeneration Ruffle Detail A-Line Dress
Once the cap and gown come off, this party-perfect dress is ready to take on any celebration. Pair it with flat metallic sandals for the post-commencement reception on the quad. Heels and a clutch are a quick switch for dinner.
To buy: $88, bcbgeneration.com.
ASOS Mini Shift Dress
A neutral shift with a pointed collar may sound a bit drab, but covered in a smattering of sequins and sparkling floral gems, it really makes the grade.
To buy: $93, asos.com.
Zara Tube Dress with Lace Top
There’s no need to master mix-and-match style when this chic sheath does it all for you. Cut-outs, lace, and overlays give the classic silhouette a cool new twist.
To buy: $100, zara.com.
