Best Graduation Dresses

This post contains affiliate links.

Graduation is just around the corner, and it’s time to start thinking about graduation dresses! You have to make sure the perfect dress ships in time šŸ˜‰

In my opinion, on graduation day, it’s all about putting your best foot forward while expressing yourself. You need to feel comfortable because there will be lots of standing around AND tons of pictures. I LOVED the Free People Jessa Foil dress I wore last year. It fit me perfectly and was unique in a sea of plain white dresses. It’s also crazy to think I graduated a year ago – time has flown by!

Here are some of the best graduation dresses out there that are guaranteed to make you look and feel fabulous!


Congrats to all the 2017 graduates! The real world isn’t as scary as it seems šŸ™‚

    I get my Master’s in two weeks and still don’t have a dress BUT I wore that navy blue Lilly Pulitzer dress for my engagement pictures a few weeks ago. It is SO flattering and a perfect closet staple for someone who doesn’t want to splurge on a dress they won’t wear again!
