Having virtual graduation can stir the pot of mixed emotions in you up even more than a normal graduation would. You are celebrating the most memorable years of your life and this is your time to shine. No matter how your graduation is being conducted, one thing is for sure – you are going to kill it. Here are a few outfit ideas to strike the perfect pose in.
Off White Knotted Asymmetric
If you are the artistic type, this is the perfect kind of dress for you. This asymmetrical high-slit dress is unique, classy, and sexy at the same time. It is a great cut for those who want to stand out in a crowd or be rare, or quirky. It also works well if you aren’t planning on going out after the ceremony. It is so versatile you can dress it up or down to your preference, so whether the occasion is formal or casual, it will not let you down. This is an awesome opportunity to break out those glitzy silver stilettos or heels that provide a flash of color. For an extra unique twist, try wearing strappy sandals.

Silk Devore Floral Cowl Neck Dress
Virtual graduation might not seem as glamorous as walking across a stage under a spotlight, but that doesn’t mean you can’t dress like a queen. This metallic cowl neck dress has a classic silhouette paired with a bold, shiny print that will turn heads. It is a type of statement dress that requires minimal accessories – simple and stylish (the last thing you want is a statement necklace fighting for attention). A neutral pair of shoes works well here, like a pair of gold pumps. If you feel chilly or perhaps too exposed, throw on a fuzzy white vest or fluffy jacket.
Try the look:
Lace Mini Dress
For something more conservative, try a classy lace dress. Lace wins points for being both elegant and romantic without toeing the line too hard. It suggests sophistication and purity. This makes it easy to style up or down depending on the occasion. If you are aiming for elegance, try on heels, but if you want to turn up the volume, block-heeled ankle boots shine here. They will make your bum look extra perky in that booty-hugging skirt. For accessories, a simple set of pearls goes a long way here, and a blazer will tie the entire outfit together.
Off-Shoulder Ruffle Tops Split Skirt Set
Wearing a gown over this dress won’t lessen the sensuous glamor of it. An off-shoulder cut paired with a high-slit skirt makes this dress the epitome of glam without being too risqué to get you banned. Your legs won’t just be flaunted here – they will sweep the floor gracefully. High slits make the wearer look taller and thinner, putting more emphasis on your movement. A solid pair of stilettos work best here, but if you are aiming for casual, gladiator sandals are a great alternative. Pro tip: feeling uncomfortable showing so much leg? Nude stockings will help, especially if they are shapers.
V-Neck Sleeveless with Beaded Appliques
This dress will unleash your inner fairy queen as soon as you zip it up. Gorgeous beaded appliques paired with blush tulle and a sparkly belted waistline will make your silhouette sing. It has a vintage-inspired look made modern with the short length and illusion neckline. You won’t have to worry about tugging at the neckline or checking your cleavage – illusion necklines are engineered for comfort. The beaded details add depth and intrigue to the style, making the dress seem like it is just floating on your body. No accessories needed!

70s fashion icons like these offer a feminine and distinctive style to wear to your virtual graduation. Bell sleeves (or flare sleeves, or butterfly sleeves) are classy statement sleeves that can range from edgy and artistic to cute, preppy, and whimsical. The off-shoulder cut shows a little bit of skin while keeping things conservative. If you are a jewelry lover, then this is the perfect opportunity for a statement necklace to dress up your outfit. Make a daring move with a chunky neckpiece and earrings you can wear under a beautiful updo. Nothing complements drama like more drama.

Solid Off-Shoulder Wrap Dress
Daytime sexy is here! This off-shoulder wrap dress works like a charm for curvy and skinny sizes alike. The wrap style of the sleeves and waist hide problem areas like arms and tummies effortlessly while cinching your middle for a sharp silhouette. The tie waist will accentuate your feminine curves, and the plunging neckline will turn heads. If you aren’t comfortable wearing tight booty-hugging dresses, fear not. Sparkly jewelry up top will draw eyes up and away from trouble spots, and with a neckline like that, who really is going to be looking at your tum-tum?
Try the look:
High-Low Chiffon Halter
A high-low style dress is easy to wear to any occasion, much less your virtual graduation. It is a great tease that allows you to show off your gams without revealing too much skin. Most importantly, the high-low cut is perfect if you are confused about whether the occasion is formal or casual. Virtual graduations beg the question about what the real dress code is, so a high-low cut is an excellent compromise. It is a universally flattering dress to bring out the femininity in any shape, so you can be classy and sophisticated but hot too!

Tulle skirts are pretty much the dream of every little girl who wants to be a ballerina. But wearing it in style isn’t just possible, it is stylistically genius. You can go in any direction you want with tulle. You can dress it up with lace, faux-fur, or a metallic top, or you can go casual with denim or a tucked-in graphic tee. Things can even get edgy here by adding leather to the equation if you don’t feel like indulging your inner fairytale princess. Whatever you decide, a fitted top and eye-catching pump are a necessity.
Try the look:
Off-Shoulder Wrap Midi
Undoubtedly feminine and sexy without being overbearingly constrictive, loose off-shoulder cuts like this let you feel sensual while still having your upper arms covered. It is floaty, streamlined, and slouches just enough for style and comfort. This boho trend has stolen the hearts of wearers all over the country and it will undoubtedly snag yours.
