Caps, Gowns, and Jerseys: The Trends In Fashion for Graduation Pictures

On Friday, May 5, 2017, the University of Georgia commencement will take place in Sanford Stadium where it will be filled with undergraduates eager to turn their tassels, and family and friends filling the stands to cheer them on.

There is a lot to think about when approaching graduation. Career path, next steps, and what city to live in, but there is a decision that is hard for everyone and can really make or break the graduation experience, which is what to wear to your graduation shoot.

The trends of graduation picture outfits have been consistent over the past few years, especially with young women.

Many females bring two outfits, one nicer dress for a picture in front of the Arch. Then they bring an outfit that is more casual but represents their day-to-day style, and then a Georgia jersey is brought to throw on over a dress or casual outfit.

These trends continued into the 2017 season as many graduates dressed for their graduation shoot.
