For some girls that may mean a midi graduation dress is a better choice rather than a long graduation dress! Whatever you wear, we know you’ll look amazing! For the mid year graduates, stay warm with a long sleeve graduation dress.
What’s the dress code?
Every university is different, so is every graduation dress! Be sure to check your university’s graduation dress code before attending to avoid a wardrobe meltdown! Most graduation ceremony dresses are midi to maxi length. When picking graduation dresses to wear under the gown, aim for something elegant, reasonably modest but most importantly, a dress that makes you feel confident! There aren’t typically any restrictions on color so don’t be afraid to wear your fave! Since it’s a special occasion, you can’t go wrong with a pair of heels to accessorize your graduation dress! Comfort is just as important so white sneakers are also a great option!
What color do I wear?

A white graduation dress is timeless and elegant, you’ll never regret it! It’s the same with a black graduation dress, you’ll look sophisticated as it’s sure to match your cap and gown! For a pop of color, blues are always stunning. Whether it's navy or powder blue, a blue graduation dress looks classy. We love green graduation dresses too, especially emerald! If you want to make a statement, look no further than a red graduation dress! Lastly, you’ll always look pretty in a pink graduation dress! Be sure to coordinate your accessories with the color of your dress! For colorful dresses, opt for neutral accessories and vice versa!
Getting the right fit
With the hours of sitting, standing, dancing and partying that graduation entails, it's important that you’ve got the right fit with your graduation dress. Consider what is most comfortable for you. Is that a mini graduation dress or a formal dress? Is it a strapless gown or long sleeve dress? A bodycon maxi dress or a flowy midi dress? Be sure to think about factors like the neckline, length, fit and material when selecting your dress and size. At Beginning Boutique, we prioritize having an inclusive size range, carrying petite and plus-size graduation dresses. We know how difficult online shopping can be, especially when it’s for such an important occasion, so to help we include all relevant size, fit and fabrication information in our product descriptions! When you can, we recommend trying your graduation dress on, whether that is in our Brisbane Showroom or by purchasing it well in advance after reviewing our returns policy. If you are ever unsure on the fit of your potential graduation dress, feel free to send us an email, a message on live chat, give us a call or visit us for a styling session in our showroom!
Mini, Midi or Maxi?
Selecting between a mini, midi, or maxi graduation dress involves considering the balance between personal style, comfort, and the formality of the occasion. A mini graduation dress is perfect for daytime graduation events. We recommend choosing a flowy style in a satin-like material for an elegant look. A midi graduation dress is perfect for balancing formality and comfort. A midi dress is often easier to walk in than a maxi dress and is perfect for graduation occasions where a mini dress is too casual. These semi-formal styles will have you feeling confident on stage accepting your degree! A maxi graduation dress is elegant and university appropriate. Long graduation dresses are flattering on all bodies and match the formality of the graduation occasion! The decision ultimately hinges on your personal preference for fit and the aesthetic you want for your graduation ceremony dress!
