Ceremonies are the four major rituals that have been performed as events and rituals since ancient times.

Among them, we will introduce the dress etiquette for graduation ceremonies that you may be concerned about.
A suit is fine for men, but for women it's hard to decide whether to wear a bright suit or a dark suit...and what kind of bag to wear.
Entrance Ceremony: Bright pastel colors such as ``beige, pink, and saxophone'' that are suitable for the spring season, with the meaning of celebration Graduation Ceremony: Dark colors such as ``black, navy, and gray'' that also have the meaning of farewell Masu.
Additionally, compared to kindergarten and elementary school, ceremonies tend to become more solemn as you move up to junior high and high school. Along with this, emphasis will be placed on formal attire for the attending parents.
Therefore, we recommend that you choose formal items suitable for TPO, such as bags and accessories that go well with your outfit, rather than items that you use on a daily basis.
Avoid bags with large logos or decorations that make it easy to identify the brand at a glance. Just be aware of clothing and accessories that exude a subtle elegance.
The formalities are diversifying and the attire varies depending on the age group, but if you are invited to a wedding or wedding reception of a relative or business associate, express your feelings of celebration by wearing formal attire that is not too flashy.
For wedding receptions during the day, long sleeves and long skirts that do not expose any skin will be formal attire. If you are a business associate, it is fine to wear a long-sleeved, elegant suit or dress.
Also, shiny items are not allowed during the day, so avoid wearing shiny materials or accessories with glitter or sequins. On the other hand, for evening receptions, dresses and accessories made of shiny materials are OK.
Also, it is okay to expose a moderate amount of skin on your arms and back. Pearls are convenient because they can be worn day and night.
Tomesode is a high-class formal attire for Japanese clothing. If it's a friend or acquaintance, there should be no problem if both the Miss and Mrs. are wearing visiting clothes. Long-sleeved kimonos are OK if you are unmarried, but in that case, avoid long-sleeved kimonos.
Ceremonies that are considered ``funeral'' such as funerals and farewell ceremonies require particular respect for etiquette.
Attend the event in a style that is appropriate for the occasion, from accessories such as bags to clothing.
The clothes are
Dresses and suit accessories in dark colors such as black are generally set with a string of pearls or black stones .
Although fashion has diversified and ceremonies have become simpler these days, the feeling of attending a funeral or memorial service remains the same. At the same time, the clothes and accessories such as bags that express these feelings remain unchanged.
Therefore, a black formal bag made of matte fabric and without large hardware is a must-have. Bags with large logos or flashy decorations that are easily recognizable at a glance are no-no.
Attend the ceremony with attire and accessories that express your feelings of respect for the deceased and the feelings of the bereaved family.
