Graduation Dress Ideas - Patterns


1, 2, 3, 4, 5.

There's so many gorgeous prints at the moment, so it just didn't seem right to include some in my Graduation dress ideas series, plus the dress I chose is a patterned number. I actually hoped to feature my dress in this post, but I can no longer find it on the Oasis website and I just don't dare look to see if it's in the sale section!

1 - Print and Plain Bandeau Dress. At £65, this is more than I'd usually dream of spending on a dress, but for a special occasion I think the price can be overlooked. The dress I bought was actually £75 originally, but thanks to a special weekend at House of Fraser I picked it up for £60. The thick bold stripes really make this dress stand out, the cute looks elegant and flattering, and if blue suits your robes, I'd say that this dress has to be a winner!

2 - Multi Stripe Button Back Dress. Hello Sailor! This dress just makes me want to go on day to the beach, it's bold and summery and there's no denying that you'd stand out at your graduation! I think this dress would have to be toned down a bit with some cream or navy shoes.

3 - Florida Vine Dress. Everything about this dress reminds me of one of my favourite bloggers, Catherine from Lady Liquor Vintage. The colours match her blog layout almost perfectly, and I think she'd look gorgeous in this dress, it really reminds me of her amazing style!

4 - Danielle Off Shoulder Mini. It would of been a crime not to include this dress. Not only is it a lovely cut, print and colour, but this beauty also shares my name! Need this dress in my life! Don't forget, you can save 20% this dress, and all other Motel Rocks items using the code danielleyc.

5 - Cutout Apex Sundress. I literally love everything about this dress. The cut at the top looks a little strange but if you click through to Topshop then you can see it on the model, and it looks amazing on her! The pattern reminds me of Liberty Art Fabrics too, which I absolutely adore.

Which is your favourite? Will you be rocking any of these dresses this summer?
