|About: Regulations For Wearing Your Graduation Gown|
When you are getting ready to graduate from college you will soon find that there are a variety of different factors that will determine the type of graduation gown that you are going to need to wear. Some of the factors will include such things as the Major obtained, the school colors, and any honors that may have achieved through your college career. The gowns worn for commencement are different throughout all the schools across the globe and the world.
In the United States the gowns that are worn by those that are earning either Bachelors or a Master degree is actually similar to those worn in England. A Bachelor gown is usually worn closed in the front by way of a zipper. They are also either full length or mid calf in length. The Master's gowns, on the other hand, have sleeves that are oblong in appearance, and although it still hangs down it is square shaped to create the oblong shape. The front of the Masters gowns are actually shaped like an arc that is cut away, and it also has a slit on the wrist opening. However, the rest of the gown is closed.
The overall shape of the graduation gown ties in with the square liripipe that goes along the hoods that are usually worn with the gowns. The Master's gowns are also designed to wear, they can either be worn open or closed depending on the universities or colleges requirements about graduation. It will also depend on the traditions and rules of the school as well.
Furthermore, the graduation gowns for doctorate can also be designed to have full sleeves instead of the bell shaped sleeves of the standard Bachelor's gowns that are worn. Some of the Doctoral gowns will have a cravat or a necktie when they are worn closed but there are others that almost appear like a cape and as a result are a lot more closed up then some of the other gowns. Also just like the Master Degree gown you have the ability to wear this gown either open or closed depending on the school's regulation.
Most generally the graduation gowns are usually black in colors, but they do sometimes come in the school colors upon request. The dress code regulation when the school colors are worn is that the outside shell of the hood should remain black. The Doctorate gowns are also quite similar to that of the Bachelor's gowns except for the fact that they do have three velvet bands on each sleeve and also velvet facing that runs down the front of the gown. There will also be certain colors that you will be designated with depending on the type of Doctorate degree that you may have obtained. Therefore, the velvet facing of the gown should be tinted to the color chosen for your particular career field.
There is also a wide array of other rules and regulations when it comes to wearing a gown for your own graduation. Most of these rules and regulations will depend on the school that you are graduating from and your chosen career field.
