Best Graduation Outfit Ideas For Grads & Guests


back to blog

Congrats you’ve made it! Whether you’re finishing your years as an undergraduate, postgraduate, or maybe you’re a guest of somebody graduating this year. You can find the perfect pieces to celebrate your achievements in style with our favourite picks below.

Graduation Outfit Top Tips

Most graduations in the UK take place in the summer, so be sure to bear that in mind when you’re looking for an outfit.

  • Graduation is a formal event, so you should wear smart clothing – leave the jeans and trainers at home!
  • Make sure that you choose your footwear wisely as you will be on your feet for the majority of the day. Opt for padded soles and adjustable straps.
  • Make sure your outfit is firstly comfortable but secondly breathable. If you’re sat inside a hall for 3 hours of the day it can get quite warm. Opt for lighter fabrics as the gowns are heavier than they look.
