17 White Graduation Dresses That Are Anything But Boring


It may only be March, but now that spring has officially arrived, graduation season is quickly approaching! Between reminiscing about all the memories you made with your now lifelong friends and that soon-to-be unforgettable moment of walking across the stage for your degree, graduation brings up a level of emotion like no other event. A memorable day requires a memorable dress, and one that's perfect for the spring season.

Though I'm not quite sure what dubbed white dresses the ultimate trend for graduation days, I can say with the utmost confidence that you will never go wrong with a white dress, and photos of your dress will be timeless for years to come. Perhaps it's symbolic for new beginnings ahead — a blank slate. There are also certain schools that require their graduates to wear white underneath their gowns. Whatever the case may be, there's a white dress that's perfect for you and will make you feel super confident as you toss your hat up in the air.

Graduation day might feel like it's still far away, but it's never too early to start looking for the picture perfect dress to wear. If you aren't sure where to start, I've rounded up some to give you an idea of what you can wear. From there, the white dress world is your oyster.
