Accessorize Your Cocktail Dress for a Graduation Party

May 26, 2010

earringsSchool’s out for summer, and that means it’s graduation season.  And graduation season can only mean one thing:  parties!  When you go to a graduation party, you want to look your best.  Lots of people have their parties in the evening, so you’ll want to dress up a little bit.  You don’t have to go crazy— prom was last month!  Here are some tips about how to make a cocktail dress look elegant and classy for some of those graduation parties.

  • Find a great pair of earrings.  You can always go with a great pair of drop earrings.  The dress is short, so your earrings can be long!
  • The necklace is really up to you.  If you’re feeling funky, go with something that has a big pendant.  If not, you can just go with something simple.  But earrings and a necklace often go hand in hand, so don’t wear one without the other.
  • If you’re comfortable wearing bracelets, this is the perfect opportunity!  Ideally, it would be great to wear a bracelet that matched your earrings.  A simple tennis bracelet always works.
  • You’ll need a good handbag.  Hopefully you held on to your little clutch purse from prom.  It’s great for times like this.  It’s just big enough for the essentials.  With a cocktail dress, you want to avoid any purse with a strap.  It just ends up looking bulky.
  • You can wear cute ballet flats with your cocktail dress.  If it’s a casual party, you can even get away with a nice pair of flip flops!  It’s all about looking cute and being yourself.

Have fun this graduation season.  Everyone here at congratulates you on a school year well done!
