High school graduation chic: Tips for keeping it classy (and comfortable), Cincinnati

CINCINNATI - High school graduations season is here. More than ever, schools are cracking down on what seniors are required to wear for the commencement ceremony.

“Graduation is a formal occasion that we take very seriously. The girls are to wear red gowns and the gentlemen wear black," Stoll said. "We use the services of Herff Jones, a company that provides everything from class rings & yearbooks to graduation caps & gowns”.

Stoll said what’s under the gown is just as important.
