It’s graduation month again!
Aside from completing their final requirements, most graduating students are busy looking for their graduation dress.
Commencement exercises are held either in the morning or late afternoon.
PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) suggests two looks you can choose from, depending on which time of day your commencement exercise will be held.
In browsing several photos, we picked the outfits of Jessy Mendiola at the Velvet Oscars party and Lexi Fernandez at GMA-7 trade launch November 2012, as a peg for your look on that special day.
LUNCH DATE READY. In the photo, Lexi sports a dark blue cocktail-collared dress, which she pairs with a black peep-toe pump.
This look is perfect for that morning commencement exercise, since you’ll surely go for a lunch date with family and friends afterwards.
If you’re not a fan of dark colors, there are varieties of color you could consider, like a peach dress with asymmetrical draped skirt.
Since your dress doesn’t have a collar, you can use a bib necklace as an alternative. Just make sure its color and design match the color and cut of your dress.
PARTY AFTERWARDS. Jessy, on the other hand, is wearing the life saver of every girl— a little black dress, which she pairs with a nude peep-toe pump.
This look is just right for afternoon graduation ceremonies, since you might have a dinner date with family, special someone, or even party afterwards.
Of course, you wouldn’t want your look to be boring, so you need accessories.
Black compliments any color, but it is better if you wear accessories that contrast with the shade of your dress.
Just be careful with those high-heeled shoes, you wouldn’t want to slip while mounting the stage to receive your diploma.
You may also want to have a simple hairstyle by keeping your hair down or curl its ends, then tie it in a pony.
But of course your most important accessory that day is your smile!
Flash a big smile and be proud you’ve made it through those years of sleepless nights!
