Summer is coming, which means a deluge of graduation ceremonies are too. To celebrate such a momentous event for these students bidding their alma maters farewell, it's important to dress the part.
While not incredibly formal, a certain level of polish is expected in one's ceremony-going attire. Of course, that's not limited only to dresses. Elegant trousers and suiting separates are also perfect for the occasion. If you need a little inspiration ahead of the graduations on your calendar this summer, look no further than these five ensembles.
