Graduation Dresses

Congratulations on making it to your graduation. You will want to wear something special as you have earned your diploma and will be taking lots of pictures to remember this event for years to come. You will want to look classic, grown up but also unique from your other classmates. Here at MackTak, we have a wide variety of graduation dresses for you to choose from. The first thing to consider when choosing your dress is what you will be most comfortable in. While dressing for the weather is important you want to make sure you can comfortably walk in your dress. You do not want to wear a dress that is too short as that would be improper or a dress that is too long or too tight as you could trip or look as though you are walking with difficulty as you go up to get your diploma. Graduating from high school or college is a huge moment and you want to remember it and not remember fretting about your dress. The weather is also an important factor when choosing your dress. You may choose a different style of dress such as long sleeves if it is a winter ceremony or sleeveless if it is a summer. The weather is especially important if your ceremony is out doors. If it is going to very hot make sure to choose a dress of a light airy fabric or a thicker fabric if the weather may be cooler. Some schools and universities have clothing requirements when they graduate such as a white dress or a robe that goes over your dress with a matching cap. It can be nice knowing a specific color as everyone looks good in neutrals and then you can focus on the silhouette and special accents of your dress to set you apart. If you know you will be wearing a cap and robe than you should pick a dress that will not be too visible under the robe and will complement its color. The color of your dress should also complement your features such as your skin, hair, and eyes. If you have to wear a robe you will mostly likely not be able to select the color so you should choose a dress in a color that is flattering to you so that you feel beautiful and unique. Before to check your school’s dress code before settling on a dress and keep in mind that your family and your friend’s families will be present. You do not want anything too sexy, choose a dress that is elegant, chic, and flatters your figure. If your school allows thin straps and strapless styles you can show off your shoulders and arms. If you have to cover your shoulders we carry many glamorous dresses that are sleeveless, with cap sleeves, with three quarter length, and full length sleeves. Think about what areas of your body you want to accentuate and what you want to hide. Consider your neckline especially if it will show if you are wearing a robe. You could choose a higher neckline as this event is conservative or you could softly accentuate your bust with a sweetheart neckline or a v neckline. Consider the waist of your dress and what will make you the most comfortable. If it is going to be a hot day you may want to go with a loose and flowy empire waist however if you know it will be chilly or windy you may want to go with a more fitted sheath. A fitted style can accentuate your waist and your hips or you could go with a fit and flare dress that plumes out at the hips. This day is your reward for working hard and you deserve to look gorgeous and love your dress. MackTak offers you congratulations and happy shopping.
