The cutest white dresses for graduation

Congrats grad! You made it through another milestone of life. The last challenge to face in this chapter? Finding the *perfect* outfit to show off at graduation. There are only a few occassions where you're looking to wear the perfect white dress and this is definitly one of them. This celebration is all about you and we know you're on the hunt for an outfit that makes you look snatched. Don't know where to start looking? Here are some style ideas:

Simple fit and flare

Forever 21, $23

You can never go wrong with a fit and flare dress. They're classic, comfortable and look great with any type of shoe or accessory.

Long sleeve

Shein, $19

Graduation dresses don't have to be boring. Sleeves, texture and ruffles in one dress make a fashion statement for sure.

Off the shoulder

Shein, $16

Ruffles are the *cutest* for grad dresses. Off the shoulder dress with ruffles? Yes please! 

Mid length

Forever 21, $40

Midi dresses are elegant and mature. This flowy option with an adorable sweetheart neckline is whimsical for your special day.


Revolve, $66

Not your average grad dress but an amazing option for anyone with an edgier style. 

Smocked and strapless

Tobi, $64

Smocked dresses are so cute for any occasion. This strapless piece is incredibly flattering and can *def* be worn throughout the rest of the summer.

Cut outs

Zara, $40

From simple slits to major gashes—cut outs spice up your look and make you instantly trendy.

Knotted shoulders

Shein, $20

The adjustable straps are ideal for sizing *and* the extra detailing.


Lulus, $48

We love this dress for two reasons. First...halter necks mean you don't have to stress over what necklace to wear—you won't be able to see it anyways. And two...dresses with pockets are so underrated. 


Tobi, $32

We know this isn't a dress but it's another totally acceptable and fashionable option to wear. Not to mention lace is such a classic style for graduation.
