Yesterday I attended my younger brother’s graduation ceremony at Royal Holloway University in Surrey (not the Holloway Prison in London as most people assume so), I wore a pretty print georgette dress bought from Benetton the other day. Paired with black suede heels and a velvety-fur trimmed clutch, the style looks basic and yet chic.
I love the Victorian-gothic architecture of the university building, it has a touch of Harry Potter-esque. I hear Basic Instinct 2 was filmed there and other mentions in the best selling book The Da Vinci Code.
Some interesting colour palette on ceremony robes.
The after-ceremony is all about having fun and celebration with close friends and family. Hat throwing is a favourite tradition with students, the end of c’est la vie hardship, now they are leading a new life as a graduate in a quest to find a dream career.
Are you graduating or attending a graduation ceremony this Summer? If so, what will you be wearing?
The print georgette dress (style 4M5ASV1V4) retails for £49.90 and is available in selected United Color of Benetton stores.
