Story tips, concerns, questions?

Stacey’s secrets are about secrets in fashion and styling tips. A fashionista who is a model that can make a simple outfit pop! My column is to help women and men shine even more through what they wear. This issue I will explain what to wear to graduation.

Let us begin.

With graduation being around the corner, some students are trying to figure out what they will wear under their cap and gown. Since you are going to be wearing the cap and gown for the entire ceremony, you want to make sure what you are wearing underneath is comfortable. I recommend you wear a formal short dress, instead of a long dress.

Wearing a short dress is easier to wear under the gown, in addition to being the proper attire for women.

Wearing a simple little black dress would be the perfect go-to dress for graduation. As I stated in prior article accessorizing is a great addition to making that little black dress more formal. In an article by Teen Vogue, a magazine for teenagers to receive fashion advice, says to add bright accessories to a plain solid color dress. Adding a bright shoe and the matching necklace will elevate the outfit. So for my ladies, try to wear a short formal dress, nothing too tight. You can also wear a nice pair of slacks and blouse to make your fit simpler.

The type of shoes you wear is very important. It is likely you might be walking on grass or walking a lot on graduation day. My advice would be to wear wedges or flats. Don’t wear over 4-inch heels to graduation because your feet will hurt. You don’t want to be uncomfortable while your waiting for your name to be called to walk across the stage. If you wear skinny heels and you happen to walk in grass it’s possible you will mess them up and fall.

Gentlemen, my advice for you will be to dress up a little bit, and don’t be so casual. You can wear a nice collar shirt with a tie and some slacks, but you don’t have to add in the suit jacket. Another thing to remember is to get a haircut. If you have facial hair get a lineup or shave it off. This is the day your parents, family and significant other will be taking tons of pictures and you want to look your absolute best. In addition to your clothes, shoes are important as well. Please don’t wear tennis shoes, get some nice formal dress shoes to match with your graduation attire.

If you follow these simple tips I’m sure graduation day will be great! I hope you all have considered my tips and use them in your future endeavors. Congratulations to the Class of 2018, and hope your outfits come out great!
