Those boys (possibly except Clay) know how to make an effort so ditch the hoodie and pull on your Sunday (or Fri/Sat/Sun night) better than best. It doesn’t require a big-money investment to look the business and there’s always the option to hire rather than buy your way to graduation night success.
There’s no rule when it comes to suit wear and remember smart can also be comfortable with lighter-style and coloured suits, grandad collar shirts or plain-coloured long-sleeved tops. It’s that ‘I’ve made the effort but I’m still edgy’ look and will ensure you don’t feel stuffy or restricted for your all-day celeb-rations.

The bonus is that you simply hand it all back and let them deal with the rest.
