Dress When Attending a College Graduation Ceremony (Male)

It's time to attend a college graduation ceremony and you're not sure whether to show up in your favorite t-Shirt or a first class suit. Here are a few key factors to determine proper dress for a college graduation ceremony.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy


  1. 1

    Ask yourself what kind of person it is that you are going to see graduate. You should be there to show support, not show your hind quarters.

  2. 2

    Invest in something that meets the requirements of casual best. This is the bare minimum you want to show up with when attending any college graduation ceremony.

  3. 3

    Consider the merits of spritzing up something fierce as there will likely be a number of attractive young ladies in the area.

  4. 4

    Shave and groom before you leave the house. Scruff might look sexy at the bar while sitting over cocktails, but it makes you look like a bum when everyone around you has taken the time to dress attractively for a college graduation ceremony.

  5. 5

    Invest in a handsome but comfortable pair of shoes. Tight shoes make for bad days when you might have to doze your way through an overlong commencement speech.

  6. 6

    Skip the tie if the ceremony is outdoors and it's likely to be warm weather. Sweating through your oxford is hardly a way to bring the ceremony off with that certain gentlemanly dash.
