2. Keep it Light-Hearted
I am a firm believer in celebrations and that nothing is more stylish than a happy face! This is a time to celebrate! Wooh! You made it! No need to dwell on the past or the future, your graduation is about now. This is your day and you spent four years earning it so take a breath, eat as much cake as you want, and drink that extra glass of champagne!
3. Your Shoes Will Define Your Day
Alright so that title was melodramatic. BUT the shoes you pick are so, so important! You will spend quite a few hours in them, sitting, standing, possibly even dancing ( I mean you are graduating so why not)! Which is why picking out ones that are actually, for real (not just fooling yourself) comfortable, is so important. A solid block heel or a wedge with a platform for good support is my absolute go-to! Nothing ruins a mood or day more than fresh blisters and a sore arch. So keep your shoes comfy and true to you on this eventful day!
4. Au Naturale
You are beautiful. So show it! A good natural look will always outshine over-done make-up and hair. Not to mention this is quite the trend right now in cosmetics. Highlight your natural beauty with simple make-up that shows off you! I recommend a little highlighter on your cheek bones, a small swipe of bronzing powder for color, lightly filling in your brows, and a big swipe of some lash-lengthening mascara to achieve a look that accentuates your own beauty!
5. Treat Yourself
Bring out your inner-boujee self and treat yourself on your special day! You only Graduate college once (under-grad at least) so go to that trendy new restaurant in a hot new outfit to celebrate your success! More casual? Indulge in a large pizza and some Ice Cream! Whatever you do, do something for yourself that makes you feel special. Four years of nights in the lib studying, crappy dorms, and ramen for dinner have earned you a celebratory night of indulgent food or a fancy restaurant! Theres no better way to go out in style than by treating yourself!
Most importantly though is to remember how proud of yourself you should be. Whether you have a job lined up or not, you did it! A degree shows dedication and passion and I think there are no better qualities to have. Be proud and be yourself, because theres nothing more stylish than that!
