Ask BB: What to Wear for College Graduation

On May 8th I will be graduating from college! However, I don't know exactly what to wear… I don't wish to wear white, because my black graduation robes are quite boring! I'm hoping to wear a springy dress, I just don't know what sort of outfit would be appropriate! —Brooke

I think a college graduation calls for a fun yet somewhat formal dress or skirt and blouse combo, and dressy heels or wedges. It's not a fashion show and it's not a prom, so you don't want to wear something too flashy or revealing. It's a family event too and you'll probably go out to eat with family and friends afterward so think about what will make you feel comfortable yet stylish.
