Though the upcoming holidays (Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year's Eve) are likely on everyone's mind right now, there's another important happening that also occurs around this time: graduation. For college seniors, this major milestone is one of the most significant of all—it's a culmination of 16-plus years in school, and as such, deserves a celebration. The first thing to check off before the soon-to-be graduate walks the stage and moves their tassel? Finding the perfect winter graduation dress.
Although you will likely be wearing a robe over your outfit during the majority of the ceremony, the dress will find its time to shine after you walked the stage (i.e., during pictures and at your graduation party). So this occasion is certainly reason enough to scoop up a new dress or two. After all, you'll be reminiscing about your graduation day (and looking at said photos) long after it's over, and you want to look and feel your absolute best.
Now, if you need a little help finding the perfect winter graduation dress, you're in luck, because below, we've rounded up 20 styles that you can wear long after the ceremony is over. Read on to see and shop our edit.
