What to wear for graduation?

  1. I mean, not a pinning ceremony (white uniforms are there for us), but official college graduation, where you suppose to wear cap and a gown. Our college website says, white or solid dress and black shoes are recommended. I really have no dresses (especially white ones), and was planning to wear white blouse, cream-colored pants and black boots. Do you think I'll be in violation of dress code?

    You should check because if the dress code is strict, they may not let you walk across the stage!!!

    When I graduated the first time I think most of the women wore dresses....Not b/c of a dress code, but that's just what we all wore. They didn't tell us what color shoes to wear, that's for sure! I'd check with your school's policies though

    When I got my first Bachelor's I wore a nice pair of high-heeled shoes with a lovely suit my mum made for me.

    When I got my second degree I wore a pair of patent leather red shoes and a dark red pant suit.

    When I got my masters, I wore a pair of high top Chuck Taylor's.

    This time, I am wearing shorts and a pair of flip-flops.
