Ahh, middle school graduation. It’s an interesting transition for kids and parents, because now you’re seeing your child step across stage and start high school. Naturally, any change comes with excitement this is no different.
While middle school graduation is a fun ceremony for all involved, it’s generally the most relaxed of all the graduation ceremonies, in terms of what a mother should wear to the graduation.
Business casual is a good dress code theme to keep in mind in regards to what to wear to middle school graduation.
Think outfits like a flowy dress with a cardigan, casual slacks with a cute top and blazer, even nice jeans with a fun blouse and pumps.
I mean really plan it, too. Like try on the outfit to make sure it fits and actually looks good. We’ve all had times when we thought something was going to look great and once we styled it on our bodies it didn’t pan out the way we imagined. This will also ensure you have a solid choice for the day of and you won’t be scrambling around last minute trying to find something to wear.
Since there will be a lot of pictures being taken the day ofthe ceremony, I would even suggest you snap a picture of yourself during theplanning stage so you can see how the colors, textures, etc. look in a photo.This is a trick a lot of stylists and celebrities use when planning outfits fora big day!
