QUIZ: What should I wear for graduation?
Classy and chic
You've been waiting for your graduation day since starting university and you're ready to flaunt what your mama gave you. Think dinner jacket and tie if you're rocking the masculine vibe or a dress and heels if you want that feminine touch. You'll have a classy new profile picture to show off all your hard work, and impress all your course mates one final time. Just make sure you practice walking in your shoes and possible wardrobe malfunctions so nothing spoils your special moment.
Simple yet sophisticated
You want to look good and show off your hard work, but you also want to keep it low-key. Think a simple dress, flat shoes and some minimalist jewelry if you're going for the feminine touch, or some black jeans, a button up shirt and smart shoes for the masculine vibe. You'll be able to enjoy your graduation in comfort while still having that sophisticated touch.
Something as quirky as you
Your out the box thinking got you your degree, and now it's time to honour that as you graduate. Let your individuality take centre stage with whatever you think will express yourself best. Think clashing colours, bold statements and unconventional designs to really stand out from the crowd - after all, you only graduate once!
You've done the hard work and now it's time to relax. Not one for showing off, you just want to graduate with as little fuss as possible. You know it will be a special day no matter what, so why not just be yourself and enjoy it? Champagne celebrations and fancy clothes really aren't your style, so you'll be graduating in whatever you find comfortable in - and that's okay!
