Shining Star: The easiest way to glam up any dress is to add a bit of shine. Sequined party dresses, metallic cocktail dresses and dresses with jewel detailing embody the hottest grad trend this year.
What a Jewel: Step away from the basic black and white dresses, and take your pick between emeralds, amethysts, rubies or sapphires. With a jewel toned dress, no other forms of jewels are necessary, so hold back on the accessories.
One or None: Strapless and one-shouldered dresses were on trend last year, and show absolutely no signs of backing off this year. Strapless dresses were most commonly seen with sweetheart necklines, whereas one-shouldered dresses came in a wide variety of styles.
Classic Column: When looking for a classic grad dress, nothing beats the clean lines of a slim, column gown.
