    The days of late-night cramming for midterms and all-you-can-eat cafeteria food are coming to an end. Sure, graduation isn't until May, but trust us when we say that time will fly between now and commencement. Between interviewing for full-time jobs, finishing up your senior thesis, and making sure you soak up every last ounce of campus life this semester, there's not much room for anything else — let alone shopping for the big day.

    So, let us help. We scouted out 24 springy (and appropriate) dresses you can wear to accept your diploma — so you can focus on those more important to-dos.

Whatever your sartorial preference, start planning now, and click ahead to shop all of the smart looks.
