How to Choose a Graduation Dress
Graduation is a remarkable accomplishment, but it?s also the perfect time to pamper yourself with a gorgeous dress fit for the occasion. Make a fashion statement when you arrive at the event with our Dresses For Teen?s assortment at Kohl?s. With such a wide variety of options, it can be difficult knowing which dress to choose. That?s why we?re here to give you some tips on choosing a dress that you will make you look as great as you?ll feel on your big day.
1. Search for a Dress That Closely Matches the Color of Your Graduation Gown
Before beginning your search, think about the color of your graduation gown. If the color of your school?s graduation gown is fairly light, you may want to avoid wearing a dark dress or one that has patterns or prints that will likely show through the material. Instead, consider a lighter option such as a pink dress or turn heads in a fashionable white dress. If the graduation gown is on the darker side or has thicker material, your options are limitless.
Do you like brightly colored dresses? Consider a multi-colored dress in purple, red or green and dress up your ensemble with the ornate appeal of jewelry such as bracelets, earrings, and rings. Do you prefer dresses with patterns or prints on them? We have various patterned dress options such as our IZ Byer Cutaway Halter Double Ruffle Dress paired nicely with footbed, wedge or gladiator sandals!
2. Consider the Length of Your Dress
In addition to the color of your graduation dress, consider the length of it as well. Dresses that are a bit longer and more voluminous tend to extend below a graduation robe. If you want to avoid this or prefer a shorter length dress, Kohl?s has a wide selection of knee-length dress to fit your style including a Speechless Off-the-Shoulder Bodycon Dress. For those that prefer lengthy options, check out our line of fashionable Maxi dresses.
3. Think Spring/Summer Fashion
Generally speaking, graduations tend to happen during the springtime. This is the perfect time to wear light colors and explore dresses with floral prints like the Almost Famous Notch Neck Floral Skater Dress or Live To Be Spoiled Square-Neck Swing Dress for when you unzip that graduation gown and begin snapping photos with your family and friends. You?ll love the way you look in our dress apparel from Kohl?s.
4. Dress for Comfort
Graduation day is very exciting, but it can also be a little nerve-wracking. Make sure you?re dressed comfortably whether the event is inside or outdoors. Based on the location, you can determine whether you should wear layers of material or dress a bit lighter with your gown. And of course, don?t forget your shoes! You will likely do a lot of walking and standing on your big day. Wedge shoes are always a great option for added height and open toes.
Dresses For Teen?s from Kohl?s are sure to take your formal wardrobe to new heights. No matter if you?re going for a fashionably elegant and sophisticated look or a delightfully casual appearance, you?ll find your perfect style.
