Graduation is a time of hope, optimism, possibilities, and, most of all, celebration. While you may be wearing a shiny gown for the most part, it’s still a big decision when deciding what to wear. While I didn’t get to have a graduation ceremony (Class of 2020, please rise!), I decided to live vicariously through 2022 graduates and do a little dress-shopping. It seems like the internet algorithm can tell I’m feeling a little FOMO, as my social media feed have consisted of girls’ sharing their fashion woes for their big day ahead. I took their thoughts into consideration and scanned the market for the best options for the occasion, from pristine white dresses to unique and trendier silhouettes.
Whether you’re looking for a dress that’s more fun or one that’s inherently more formal, I’ve found a variety of dresses that’ll work any preference. If you’re still on the hunt for the dress, keep scrolling to shop 33 of the best options I found across all our favorite retailers.
