Are you graduating soon? Do you have attend a graduation ceremony? Or perhaps an after-party is in your future; whatever the case may be, here are my picks for the perfect dress to celebrate pomp and circumstance.

A sequin LBD is the perfect option for a classic, sophisticated look. Pair with a red lip and metallic pump for a glitzy glam affair. Edie sequin dress from Eden

This casual dress by Isaac Hers is effortless, comfortable, and is extra cute when paired with a strappy summer sandal. The blue hue pops with an extra sweep of bronzer and shimmery eyes. Vera Cruz dress by Isaac Hers

I just can’t get enough of this sunny lemon yellow shade! Be the belle of the ball, with this to die for frock by Mina Stone. I’d wear it with heeps of bold turquoise jewelry, and a sky-high platform. Mina Stone long draped dress at Frances May

Vintage vixens, this is the dress for you. This blush-toned hue has been seen all over the runways, and red carpets and the lady-like cut screams classy (Granny will love it!) Spice it up with leopard wedges, or keep it simple with nude heels. Vintage ruffle dress from Yo Vintage!

Ok! I know this is not a dress, but if you plan your outfit from the shoe up (as I generally do) these will rock the shit of your walk across the stage. Glitter Night Walks are they perfect compliment to those gowns that you practically drown in. And for you naysayers out there I wore these exact shoes in blue velvet to my grad!
