The Graduate

Get your kids in school, so they can get an education, get a degree, and take a vacation.

It’s that time of year for the black caps and gowns. It’s time for the turning of the tassel, for inspiring commencement speeches, and for pomp and circumstance. I’m talking about graduation ceremonies. Congrats to those of you who have recently graduated or who will be graduating soon. This is a monumental accomplishment.

To the graduates: before you dance, skip, jump, or strut your way across the stage to shake hands with a strange man you have never met and are handed a rolled up piece of blank paper, think about what outfit you want to reveal when you disrobe your rented cap and gown.

To the friends and family: you will be showering your graduate in hugs, kisses, tears of joy, and flower leis. All the while, many pictures will be taken, and Kodak moments will be made. You too, must be dressed to impress for your graduate.

What to wear? With many ceremonies taking place outdoors, you should dress according to the warming trend: keep it playful with day dresses or stay springy in separates. Checkout my Keaton Row lookbook for outfit ideas.

You should be gettin’ it (an education), cause you don’t want to sell yourself Too $hort. Congratulations to the Class of 2014!
