13 Shoe Ideas for Graduation
As for shoes, go for shoes that you feel comfortable in and that you can wear for a long time. Wear shoes with a lower or thicker heel or comfy sneakers, converse or ballet pumps. The last thing you want to think about is feet that ache. If you still want to wear high heels pack a pair of foldable ballet flats in your handbag.
I especially think it’s pretty to match a white graduation dress with shoes in beige, pink or white. But black is, of course, also (as always) a very chic color.
