The last few months of your senior year will probably be the most important of your high school career. There are so many important events during those last few months that you need to plan outfits for. It can get quite pricey if you wait until the last month or so to start buying your outfits. If you start planning for these major events now, you won’t be stuck with the major price tags a few months from now!
One of the most important items of clothing you’ll buy during your senior year is a prom dress. If you’ve had your eye on your favorite gown for a while, but the price tag isn’t in your budget, start saving now so that you can afford it by the time Prom rolls around. The earlier you start saving; the better chances you’ll have of being able to afford the dress of your dreams!
During the last few weeks of high school, it felt like I was dressing up for a different event every other day. By the time my actual graduation ceremony rolled around, I was so over finding cute dresses to wear that I just wore a sundress I found in my closet. I, like most people, figured that I’d be wearing my gown over my dress for most of the day. As it turns out, the day of my graduation was one of the hottest days ever, meaning we all spent approximately 20 minutes in our gowns before ripping them off, and leaving me in a dress that I didn’t love. The day you graduate from high school is one of the most important days of your life, and you’ll always look back on the pictures from that day. Wear something you absolutely love!
Surprisingly, schools tend to have pretty strict dress codes for what you wear in your senior pictures. You may think that you have the perfect outfit picked out, but your school may not approve it. And remember, this is a picture that will probably hang on your parents’ wall from now to eternity, so don’t pick something you’ll hate in 20 years.
No matter what kind of trip you take during your senior year of high school, there’s a pretty good chance that you’ll end up on some type of vacation with your best friends. Whether you go to a tropical island for your spring break or just a road trip after you graduate, a sundress that you absolutely love will always come in handy. There are so many events that you’re dressing up for during your senior year, having a sundress as a back-up may just be a lifesaver!
Whether you have a banquet for your sports teams, or your school simply has a senior banquet or “awards ceremony” to commemorate your class, an outfit that you love is essential. I’ve seen some schools have sports banquets, which just require a “business professional” outfit, but I’ve seen other schools have “Senior Nights” which essentially means dressing up like you’re going to the Oscars. There’s a huge variety of different dress codes for these types of events, but chances are you’ll have at least one to go!
One of the best parts of your senior year is being able to be front row in your school’s student section. Depending on how intense your student section is, you may have different themes every week, like a white-out (students wear all white) or a pink-out (students wear all pink in support of breast cancer research). No matter what themes your school may pick, it’s important to always have a few options handy for those Friday night games!
Those last few days of school will be some of the most photographed days of your life. Not only will your mom be snapping pictures every time you turn around, but your friends will have their cameras in-hand and ready to document your last few days of school together. Pick an outfit that you absolutely love, because chances are you’ll be reminiscing over those pictures with friends for years to come!
