Daytime dresses appropriate for graduation parties

Summertime is filled with lots of daytime dates with friends and family. Celebrate in style at the many graduation parties you'll be attending with these 2013 daytime dress trends:

Try a sporty black and white dress. An A-line skirt flatters all body types thanks to a form-fitting top and flowy skirt. Pair the dress with black sandals, a neon clutch and earrings for a dressier take on the sports-inspired ensemble. The color combination is a huge trend for the warm months ahead. 

Give your eyelet lace dress a makeover by choosing a neon version. Brights are a definite summer "do." The bold color paired with the flirty lace material keeps your dress from feeling too fancy. Mute the rest of your outfit with nude flats and cute pair of sunglasses. You also get bonus points for trying the floral trend, even if it's a more subdued version. 

When all else fails, and you simply can't find a dress in a flattering style, size or color, you can always check out brand name clothing at your local resale shop and create an illusion dress. To master this trendy look, combine a top and skirt to create the illusion that the separates are actually one piece.
