What shirt should I wear?

February 24, 2019

We're often asked what clothing you should wear when you come in for your grad photos.  What's below your neckline doesn't matter much of course - the gown covers most of your clothes, and we aren't likely to photograph your shoes.  What does matter is the shirt collar you're wearing!

As you can see in the photos below, the grad gown has a shallow V-neck style.  Shirt collars show under the gown as a result, so planning in advance is worthwhile.  Men traditionally wear a dress shirt and tie; ladies usually wear a top that won't show above the gown (like a tank top).

Of course, these looks don't suit everyone.  Some of our clients bring golf shirts, a mix of shirt and necktie colours, bowties, turtlenecks, collared blouses, crew-neck sweaters, formal dresses, and a number of other variations.  If you wear hijab there's another range of options; we've tried to collect some of the variations in the photos below.

Two general rules to keep in mind: first, the graduation attire is a specially designed garment with years of school tradition behind it, so we normally do not alter the outside of the gown with coverings, pins, or additional embellishment.  Second, graduation itself is a dressy event - so if you keep it classy you will be more in keeping with the usual character of the day.  Take time to plan your appearance and check with your family if you're in doubt.  In the end, these photos are for them as well as you.
