SlamXStyle: An Outfit To Help You Get Through The Nightmare Of Graduation Day
Alexander McQueen Slim-Fit Short-Sleeved Cotton-Blend Shirt // You’ll want to start with a collared shirt that’ll a) stick up past the neck of your graduation gown so you don’t look naked under it and b) make you presentable at the obligatory post-graduation family dinner. But then…
John Elliott + Co Mercer Tank in Silk Blend White // Layer a tank under your shirt to a) catch the inevitable sweat that you’ll produce while baking in the sun during the commencement ceremony and b) to be able to strip down after you get back on campus and enjoy your last night of being fratty, before you enter the real world and fratty behavior is deemed unacceptable.
AMI Navy Linen Classic Trousers // Go with a pair of light linen pants that’ll help keep you cool but also be acceptable for the dress code at dinner.
Ronnie Fieg By Sebago Pancho in Brown // Slip your feet into a pair of these Ronnie Fieg X Sebagos. They’re essentially the shoes that kids wear into the dark, beer-filled recesses of a frat basement but done up with streetwear-acceptable styling.
Barton Perreira Dean D-Frame Acetate and Metal Sunglasses // If the night before your graduation is anything like our's was, you’re going to be hungover even before the ceremonies start. Help your dehydrated retinas out with a good pair of sunglasses.
Coach X Billy Reid Whiskey Flask In Leather // This is perhaps the most important graduation accessory of all; it and the liquid that you fill it with will help you get through the interminable boredom of your 8-hour graduation.
It’s graduation season, and if you’ve somehow made it through your class requirements and are set to receive your diploma, you’re going to need a good outfit that’ll help get you through the hellishly long, excruciatingly hot, and dreadfully boring marathon of academic pats-on-the-back that is a commencement ceremony.
So, for this week’s SlamXStyle, our feature highlighting a timely curated outfit, we’ve constructed the perfect graduation day ensemble to wear under that cap and gown. Click through the gallery above, shop the links below, and congratulations on your expensive piece of paper.
