When people think of traditional Chinese clothing, the first thing that comes to mind is usually the 旗袍 (qipao), the fitted patterned dress that seems to be quintessentially Chinese.

It is characterized by an upper garment (either a robe or a shirt) paired with a lower garment (typically a pleated skirt), and dates all the way back to the Han Dynasty. This style has also influenced other Asian clothing styles, such as the Korean hanbok, Japanese kimono and yukata, and others.

Con-GRAD-ulations, you've finally made it! All those late-night study sessions, early morning classes, and marathons at the library have finally paid off and it's time put on that cap and gown. The dress code for a commencement ceremony is definitely a lot different from typical student attire (which probably consists of more sweatpants and sneakers than you'd like to admit), so coming up with the right outfit to wear for your big day might be a bit of a challenge. If you're debating on what to wear, we've got you with this round-up of 8 graduation outfits that capture 4 different styles you can wear to properly celebrate finishing school!

Fancy Looks

Win graduation with these fancier looks! This red dress not only goes well with a graduation gown, but will also make you a standout with its gorgeous arm detailing. You'll also be turning some heads with this black dress, thanks to the added white sash that accents and flatters the waist.

Classy Looks

These two outfits are definitely keepin' it classy without overdoing it. White is definitely a graduation go-to, but cute lacy patterns will definitely keep you standing out in the crowd. You can also never go wrong with florals, like this sleeveless dress that is as cute as it is stylish. Pair with some accessories and comfortable (but still dressy!) shoes, and you're all set.

Mature Looks

Planning on a less traditional look that doesn't involve a skirt or dress? A cute yet comfortable two-piece suit might do the trick, like this G.Shero set. Or, go smart casual with a sleeveless blouse and straight trousers. Finish it off with a pair of cute flats for maximum comfort, or your favorite heels.

Girly Looks

Want to pull off something on the girlier side? Go bohemian chic with this light and flowy dress that will add some playful patterns under your grad gown. Or, opt for this gorgeous bell-sleeve dress. Both these outfits go great with chunkier or lower heels, which will be a lot more comfortable than most other fancy shoes (your feet will thank you!).

It can be difficult to put together a nice outfit for work when it's hot and humid outside. We recommend stocking up your wardrobe with these 100% work-appropriate items and you will never be out of ideas for what to wear everyday! It'll save you time in the morning, too.

Wide Legged Trousers

Tight pants are not your friend during the summer. Wide legged trousers are super comfy and keep you cool while not showing too much of your skin.

Long Shirt Dress

This fashionable, yet formal dress will carry you through the summer. Just slip it on, throw on some nice shoes and you're ready to go!

V-Neck Jumpsuit

Three words: onesies for grown-ups! You can layer a t-shirt inside, or quickly throw on a blazer and your outfit will be ready for your next big meeting.

Off-Shoulder Blouse

They show just the right amount of skin, and you can keep it on for your hot date right after work!

Formal Shorts

If shorts are allowed in your office, then don't be afraid to wear a conservative option that flatters your figure but doesn't reveal too much.

Blazer

A blazer can make a lot of your non-work clothing ready for the office! Just style a structured blazer on top, and you'll be grateful that you have it when the AC is blasting all day inside.

High-Heeled Sandals

The heel is high enough to demand respect, but not so high that your feet will hurt. Sounds pretty great to us!

Midi Dress/Skirt

The length of a midi dress or skirt allows you to wear it all year round! Choose a fun pattern if you dare, and you'll find that you've brightened up an otherwise drab office space.
