On Point Dresses for Graduation Wear for Mothers

Be picture ready for one of the most special day in your kid's life (and yours too). While there are no official rules, I think you will agree these guidelines make sense. College graduation calls for attire that is dressier than jeans, but not as fancy as what you would wear to a wedding. Going with something classic is always a great option. Choose a classic style dress or think semi-formal, classy, feminine, like what you would wear to a special business event. 

A dress is always a perfect choice. Timeless silhouettes work well, such as sheath dress, shift dress, wrap dress or fit and flare. Formal pants worn with a silky blouse and jacket can also look lovely.

    Keep weather in mind when you are planning your graduation look

    Graduation ceremonies are typically very long and drawn out. If you are not sure what to wear to a graduation ceremony, find our picks here.

    You are going to be sitting for a very long time and wearing something comfortable may help. The graduation ceremonies in fall are usually held indoors. Even though the ceremony is inside consider carrying a cashmere shawl, a scarf or a light jacket to keep comfortable. It’s also a good idea to bring along a sweater in case it gets cool or if the air conditioning is blasting.

    In spring and summer, graduations are often held outdoors. At this time of year, it can be scorching hot, which is why many women prefer sleeveless or light cotton, linen or silk graduation dresses to keep cool. And don’t forget your sunscreen and sunglasses if you are outdoors!

    Colors and Prints can make for great photos

    Taking photos are a big part of Graduation Day, so choose to wear some color, and bring joy to your day.  Solid colored dresses are slimming and photograph well.  In spring summer graduation ceremonies, a nice print can look very elegantly classy.

     Florals are a natural choice for mother of the graduate dresses, and always work well any time of year. Or, you can go for a modern, relaxed print. Elegance is the magic word when it comes to dressing for graduation.

    Shoes are Important

    Shoes with kitten heel are fine if the graduation ceremony is inside, but if you are outdoors, flats, wedges, or block heels would be better and are going to be a lot easier to walk in. You wouldn't want to get your heel stuck in the grass or between patio stones.

    Keep in mind where the graduation ceremony is being held. The kind of shoes, and the height of heels is something you need to consider depending on the venue. Whether the ceremony is at night in a large fancy formal hall, or morning in the gym with you sitting on the bleachers, or in the afternoon out on the grass under a tent.
