Congratulations to every one part of the class of 2023. From your friends at My Melrose, we recognize your hard work and this significant milestone in your lives. We celebrate your little ones graduating preschool and kindergarten, high school seniors ending one of the most extended chapters of their lives, and those graduating college and beyond. These milestones take hard work and discipline, and we're proud to see you all accomplish these goals. Today, we wanted to help graduates and parents of said academians find something nice to wear for the occasion as well as ideas for small gift items to show your affection to the graduate in your life. Please read below for our top suggestions and check out more items in our Class of 2023 Graduation Station.
What to Wear for Graduation
Graduation is one of the essential occasions in one's life, and graduates and guests elevate their looks to celebrate this momentous event. Our "Love Tree" 36" Short Sleeve Ruffle Dress is this author's top choice to wear to graduation as either the graduate or the guest. This dress is feminine, flattering, and a versatile dressy option. If your graduation is indoors, heels are preferred; an outdoor ceremony should prompt more comfortable footwear like low wedges or flats. You can accessorize this dress, no matter what color you choose, with statement earrings, a complimentary necklace, and bracelet(s) if you so desire. This graduation look is best for a morning or afternoon ceremony.
An evening graduation ceremony calls for a different approach, something more luxe. So our second outfit showcases a lovely satin coral "Chocolate" Cowl Neck Spaghetti Strap Bodysuit sharply paired with our white "Chocolate" Solid Belted Skinny Ponte Pants and finished with an editorial inspiration with our Kelly green "Top Guy" 3" Pleather Ankle Strap Heels. With your intelligence and poise, you'll look elegant and sharp as the showstopper, wearing an attention-grabbing look.
For the gentlemen, a dressy button-down shirt, solid or print, is a staple to a men's graduation outfit. The idea for a complete look is to be sleek; you can choose a pressed pair of jeans, khakis, or slacks and finish with dress loafers. No matter what combination you choose out of our suggestions, you'll be a sharp, handsome man ready to walk to the stage and claim your victory in making it through your education.
The little ones also need something adorable to wear to celebrate their achievements. You can apply the same concepts to children to a certain degree. The best choice to show for a little girl is our "Trende" Short Sleeve Glitter Line Ruffle Dress. Compared to older young ladies, having a little sparkle in a little girl's look is more acceptable. Make her feel important and like a princess during her special moment. Little boys can wear polo shirts, button-down dress shirts, slacks, khaki pants, and dress shoes.
Gifts for Graduates
Graduates deserve a little gift for all their hard work; we at My Melrose have various gift items for grads. The gift options are either functional, fun, or meaningful. The Multicolor Monogram Print Vegan Leather Handbag with Tan Trim is a fan favorite. We love this bag for its elevated look, maximalist print design, and its mature fashion. It's perfect for a college graduate to signify their accomplishment and prepare them for a professional environment.
Our "BT" Four Color Face Powder Palette is a cute gift for any age for its adorable pun "You're A-glazing-ing!" This is a fun way to congratulate and celebrate the graduate. Remind them how amazing they are in your unique way. Maybe pair this small palette with our impression of the Bath and Body Works Madagascar Vanilla scent, "Uscent" Vanilla Dream Eau de Parfum, to boost their confidence and help them channel bold and sophisticated energy.
Graduates have made it this far in their milestone; gift them a symbol of protection as a meaningful gift. Give our "Pink" Royal Blue Five Piece Hamsa Charm Bracelet as a daily, casual protection symbol for all ages. Older graduates can still wear the evil eye in a professional setting; it may be especially effective for corporate-bound professionals. Gift our "Royal Time" Rhinestone Cross Evil Eye Watch Jewelry Set, featuring a beautiful rhinestone-lined watch, diamond stud earrings, and a layered necklace.
