What do parents wear for high school graduation?
Mothers should wear semi-formal or business attire. Dresses are a good choice, as are a coordinated skirt outfit or a pantsuit. All clothing needs to be in good taste and not too flashy or attention-grabbing. Wear clothing in colors that coordinate well with the school’s graduation gown colors.

It’s always better to be overdressed than underdressed. If the invitation doesn’t specifically state the dress code, go with a nice dress or skirt/slacks with a blouse combination. It’s a safe bet and you’ll always feel more comfortable dressed up than dressed down. Don’t wear jeans!
What should you not wear to graduation?
Being Underdressed or Overdressed Clothes that are too formal, or not formal enough, will make you feel out of place when you should feel relaxed. Wearing jeans to your college graduation probably isn’t a smart choice, but a ball gown isn’t quite right, either. Aim for business or business casual for the ceremony.

DON’T do a dark color that will blend in with your graduation gown. Some sparkle or a bright summer shade will pop against that drab over lay. DO decide in advance how you’ll fix your hair. You’re likely going to have to wear it down thanks to that unflattering cap.
What is etiquette for graduation gifts?
It is an etiquette myth that if you receive a graduation announcement you must send a gift. Announcements do not equal invitations to a graduation.

Do you bring gifts to a high school graduation party?
