School’s out for summer and for some high school and college seniors graduation is just around the corner. Although the ceremony attire will likely consist of a one-size-fits-all gown and a hat hair inducing cap, it’s important to find the perfect outfit that will wow your friends and family when you unveil what’s under your graduation gown. Here’s five cute summer frocks that will keep you cool and classy on your big day.
For a sweet, simple and stylish look try this adorable circle eyelet dress from J.Crew that is cute enough to show off at friend’s grad parties but sophisticated enough to pose in for family pictures. Pair the dress with some neutral sandals and a belt during the day for a more casual look and trade those out for some strappy black heels and a statement necklace for the evening. J.Crew is located on E. First Avenue in Denver, the Park Meadows shopping center and Flatiron Crossing.
For a bold, unexpected pop of color under your robe check out this chic floral dress from H&M which shows off one of this season’s most popular trends, bold and bright florals. To offset the pattern of the dress pair this look with a neutral wedge and a cardigan for your graduation lunch with the grandparents. H&M is located on the 16th Street Mall in Denver.
For a sophisticated and sweet feel this lace overlay swing dress from Forever21 is a classic look that will look great in those graduation pictures for years to come and make your friends swoon at the sight of your lovely new frock.

If your graduation celebration is an upscale affair, try the beautiful lace Luella dress from Anthropologie which is classy enough for a fancy event but doesn’t feel stuffy or outdated. Balance sexy and sophisticated in this lacy frock which is guaranteed to turn heads. Style this look with a chic up-do, bold earrings and a bright stiletto. Anthropology is located at the Cherry Creek Shopping Center and Park Meadows Mall.
Alternatively, if your graduation party is a more casual, backyard barbecue kind of event, cool down in this cute back-exposing Urban Outfitters dress which is a perfectly flouncy alternative to more formal apparel. Pair this dress with a stack of bracelets and some flat black strappy sandals to complete your casual look. Urban Outfitters is located at Park Meadows Mall and E. First Avenue in Denver.
