Classic and Contemporary: What to Wear with New Class Rings in 2021

Your class ring is an instant heirloom piece, meant to last for years and be passed down to the next generation. 

Yet, as priceless as it may be, it isn't destined to live in the box you bought it in, shrouded from everyday life. Rather, your ring takes on much more charm and character when it's actually worn!

While the desire to keep yours safe is understandable (and admirable), we encourage you to put it on, show it off and truly enjoy it. Today, we're sharing a few of the top fashions to pair with your class rings in 2021!

The Graduation Attire

Of course, few items pair together more beautifully than a fresh graduation gown and your new class ring! Maybe yours is the traditional solid black gown, reaching almost to the floor but letting you showcase your shiny new shoes. Or, it might be designed in your school colors!

Either way, you can wear your class ring with pride as you turn that tassel! Our rings are made of sterling silver and are available in both men's and women's styles, so anyone can rock them on graduation day.

Everyday College Classics

Dressed up or dressed down, a gorgeous class ring never goes out of style. It looks right at home when paired with your favorite pair of jeans, t-shirt and pair of sneakers. In fact, this conversion of high-low fashion is having a major moment right now!

While the ring itself catches the light and looks luxe from any angle, you don't have to reserve it for special occasions. Both high school class rings and college class rings are ideal for any scholar. 

This makes it a natural piece to pack in your college suitcase! As long as you keep it in a safe and secure location, you can wear it to class with ease, paying homage to your roots while you spread your wings into the future. 

Corporate Casual: Your New Work Ensemble

Many students decide to pursue a part-time job or an internship while they're in college or technical school. This is a great way to get hands-on experience in your field, build valuable connections, and grow your resume all at the same time. 

It's important to make a great impression at these gigs, and your high-school clothes might not be quite as formal as the environment requires. This is especially the case if you have an office job in a corporate setting.

The good news is that it's easy to find great-quality work clothes from a variety of places including big-box stores, secondhand shops and even online marketplace exchanges. You don't spend a ton of money to look your best! 

When you're on the clock, your class ring will look sharp as an accessory to any work shirt, pair of slacks, or formal blouse that you choose. It's also an instant conversation starter, which can help you break the ice with your new colleagues! Once you graduate and you're ready to start your first full-time job, you'll already have a wardrobe you can count on.

If you're looking for more ways to save while you're in college, you'll be happy to know that while our class rings are made of higher-quality metals than many of our competitors, they're also available at a lower price point. 

Formal Events and Elevated Fashions

It can be difficult to know exactly what to wear when you receive an invite to a formal event. When you're younger, these gatherings are few and far between, and your attire isn't exactly top of mind. However, as you get older, you'll find that you have even more opportunities to dress up.

Birthday party invites will soon give way to save-the-dates and wedding invitations. Work conferences and trade shows will say "Black Tie Only" on the ticket. After you've cleaned up and put on your most formal pieces, you might need a little something extra. 

Your class ring is special and sentimental without being pretentious or obnoxiously oversized. It's a classic addition to any formal ensemble and elevates your entire look in an instant. 

Laidback Weekend Chic

Whether you're strolling your college town or heading home for a few days, the weekends are yours to cherish! Sometimes, you may want to dress as relaxed as possible, sticking with your everyday college basics. After all, you earned it! 

In other instances, you may want to look a little more polished for a date night or an evening out with your friends. In that case, tees and worn-out jeans might give way to blazers, long skirts, or dresses. Slip on your class ring with any look, and those disparate pieces can suddenly look more intentional and put-together.

From strolling the farmer's market to exploring local coffee shops, there are many different ways to see what your campus has to offer! If you need a little inspiration, ask around at your local student center for advice on where to go!
