Graduation gowns are definitely not the most flattering outfit you'll ever wear, and the beautiful outfit you will be wearing is frustratingly hidden underneath it all.

However, the heels you wear to strut across the stage as you collect that diploma will make all the difference and can draw all eyes away from your baggy gown.  Here are a few of our faves:

 Can you ever really go wrong with sequins? It’s like having a disco ball on your feet – you’ll be sure to dazzle in these showstoppers.


Regardless of whether you choose to go bold and bright, classic and traditional, or sparkly and fantastical- or choose to forgo a heel altogether- the most important thing to remember while shopping for your graduation shoes is to pick a pair that represents you. Feeling confident, happy, and proud on the walk across the stage to get that diploma is far more important than whatever shoe will take you there.
