Keep in mind the weather and the venue. Dress in lightweight clothes for an outdoor summer ceremony. Likewise, opt for sweaters and heavier pants for fall and winter ceremonies. If the ceremony is outside, consider a lower, thicker heel. Choose a shoe with some stability in case of wet sidewalks, grass or rain.
Between a long ceremony and the graduation parties after, there’s a chance you won’t get to change, so wear something comfortable that you can keep on all day. During the ceremony, heels are great, but don’t wear a super-high pair you can’t walk in. You don’t want to wobble your way to the stage – or worse, trip on your way to receive your diploma. Keep your feet cozy by bringing a pair of cute ballet flats or flat sandals to change into after the ceremony.
Consider what type of school you're graduating from. A law school graduate might consider a suit, nice black dress or dressy casual separates. A high school graduate might dress up or take a walk on the wild side in a Hawaiian shirt and shorts.
Choose tasteful jewelry. A couple of nice pieces are great; it's not the time for something large and outrageous. This is a special time for your family member, not your jewelry. Consider wearing something that the family member gave you as a gift, to show him or her how proud you are of them.
