What should parents wear to high school graduation?
Mothers should wear semi-formal or business attire. Dresses are a good choice, as are a coordinated skirt outfit or a pantsuit. All clothing needs to be in good taste and not too flashy or attention-grabbing. Wear clothing in colors that coordinate well with the school’s graduation gown colors.

Dads can’t go wrong with a pair of comfortable brogues. Sons should stick to Oxfords, although if you insist on dressing down, brogues or Derbys are acceptable. A formal suit and casual shoes may make a statement, but it’s not the sort of statement you want to make on your graduation day.

Can you wear jeans to graduation?
Clothes that are too formal, or not formal enough, will make you feel out of place when you should feel relaxed. Wearing jeans to your college graduation probably isn’t a smart choice, but a ball gown isn’t quite right, either. Aim for business or business casual for the ceremony.

Bells of Ireland are among my favorite flowers for graduations, as they have a fascinating form and bright green color and they represent good luck. Camellias and white carnations also mean good luck, while peonies and stargazer lilies represent wealth and prosperity.
Do I wear a suit to graduation?
We recommend that you wear a suit to this special formal event. Dark charcoal or navy suits are always classic and a slim fit is the most moden option for young graduates. If you want to make a lasting impression, opt for a royal blue suit or a double-breasted design. A three piece suit is too formal for this occasion.

If you give flowers, it’s best to present them to the graduate after the ceremony. Boutonnières and corsages are given before the ceremony.

What should a female guest wear to graduation?
Ladies, a knee or tea-length dress will do perfectly. Stripes or a pencil skirt are also suggested as designs any more elaborate can be seen as less formal and may take away from the big day. Modest but stylish should be the mantra for any graduate!
