#Blackexcellence: Graduation Outfit Inspiration

Alas, the season of achievement, nostalgia, excellence, pure celebration is upon us. Graduation is like a rite of passage for many, when we take that walk across the stage we leave behind a pivotal period of life and walking into the uncertain, yet exciting future.

Perhaps the most exciting part of graduation is figuring out how to slay underneath the cap and gown. Graduation photos are memories that you’ll have forever, and after all of those sleepless college nights, you deserve to look and feel good. Here are a few outfit suggestions for all of the inevitable graduation #blackgirlmagic and #blackexcellence that will take place this month.

All white everything

Wearing white is a statement in itself. Try a printed dress for a pop of color, or the classic white on white style which will contrast the cap and gown.


Bold and beautiful colors

Make a statement in these bold printed looks and slay in your grad photos.
