With college graduation season upon us, you may be wondering what to wear under your graduation gown. That thing is so bulky that you could basically wear a unicorn onesie underneath and no one would be the wiser. However, as you've worked long and hard to get to this day, you may want to consider dressing up a bit. Personally, I chose to pair comfort with style on my own graduation day. For me, the thought of sitting for two hours in an uncomfortable body con dress gave me the chills. However, if that's your thing, then go for it, of course. This is your day, after all. Wear whatever makes you feel special.
When it comes to special occasions, I personally like to stick with either dresses or jumpsuits. These outfits are perfect from going from your graduation ceremony to lunch, brunch, or whatever else you may have in store that day. These items are transitional pieces as they bring about a sense of calm, collectedness without being overwhelming or too casual. These pieces are a good mix of subtle style that can go with you anywhere. Here are 11 dress and jumpsuits that would be perfect to wear under your graduation gown.
