Am I the only who’s over the traditional grad dress?

The next best thing after the pant suit is the short suit. If you aren’t really feeling pants and feeling too covered, try this option. You show off your killer legs without doing too much.

4. Kill It In A One-Piece

Now, these are just a few of the many styles of jumpsuits out there, but it’s probably one of the most easiest options to pick other than a dress. It’s like a one stop shop. All you need is killer pair of shoes (and some accessories, if needed).
