Graduation is a major milestone in any girl's life — it may also be the moment in time where the lavish gifts she's dreamed of become a reality. With that in mind, we're turning our attention to the kind of gifts that are smart, sweet, and a little luxurious. If ever there were daydreams of covet-worthy bags or iconic fashion statements, these are the gifts that are sure to reward all your grad's hard work. From artwork perfect for her very first apartment to a pair of earrings she'll wear with everything, we guarantee these 10 finds reflect the sophistication and smarts of the graduate you're gifting. Click on to see and shop our favorite pieces (some of which topped our own editors' grad wish lists).
Keira Knightley stepped out in London with fiancé James Righton in a black and tan outfit that's perfect for a casual night out. Her look included a denim jacket, a black button-down maxi dress, Tapeet sandals, and tan accessories, including a tan belt and a tan shoulder bag. We love how Keira worked her ensemble with ease, then added red-orange nail polish for a touch of much-needed color. Inspired by Keira, sport a black dress with tan accessories and a jean jacket while strolling around the city during day or night or dabble with the black and tan trend via these Rachel Zoe tan leather shorts ($357, originally $595), a black blouse, high heels, and a denim jacket for a dressier feel.
Alexa Chung styled up her ladylike best for the VIP preview of the Royal Academy of London Exhibition. The style setter chose a mod sheath dress by Moschino for the affair, complete with tiny pockets, ruffles, and pearl-encrusted gold buttons. We love how she balanced out the ladylike vibe with a playful raffia clutch decorated with flamingos and palm trees. Watch today's Fab Flash to see more! On Allison McNamara: Topshop blouse.
Ali Larter strolled through NYC and likely turned some heads in her asymmetrical red wrap skirt, which she paired up with a white tank and tan sandals. She accessorized her sweet and sexy Spring style — check out that thigh-grazing slit — with round tortoise shades, a fan necklace, and snakeskin clutch, which played up her reverse french manicure. Re-create Ali's sassy look via a white tank, red wrap skirt, and tan leather sandals, or change up the color scheme with this coral Donna Mizani high low maxi skirt ($195) and neon yellow tank for a louder combo.
By now it's clear that the sneaker trend has swallowed Hollywood, to the point where designers like Isabel Marant are creating insanely fashionable non-workout kicks. But Converse will always be a classic. And although the stars are dabbling with new labels, their go-to is still Converse in all shades and styles. We particularly love Diane Kruger's pink high-top pair, which she styled in a summery way via a little white dress and fedora. Nicole Richie was also recently spotted wearing studded Converse while traveling. Find out who else owns Converse sneakers and how they styled their pair, then shop the shoes for yourself.
You're probably acutely aware by now that cutouts are currently huge for the season — we spotted the look on the Spring 2012 runways at Rodarte, Christopher Kane, and Prabal Gurung to name a few, and stars like Lea Michele, Nikki Reed, and Miranda Kerr have all taken the trend from the runway to the red carpet — but you don't have to be a superstar to show a little skin. Luckily, there are a multitude of silhouettes that allow you to show off the parts of your body that you're most proud of (while still hiding the ones that you're not that hot on). If you want to try the look but are worried about showing too much flesh, just opt for a cutout-shoulder blouse or dress for a more subtle take on the trend. Inspired?

Celebrities love miniskirts as much as you and I, but as of late they've been lengthening their hemlines to the knees and below. Pencil, poufy, A-line, circle — everyone from Jaime King to Michelle Obama to Nina Garcia and many more have been rocking stylish knee-length skirt ensembles all over the globe. Some are appropriate for the office, others are perfect for a nightclub, while others are more daytime. If you haven't worn a knee-length skirt yet, let these celebrities be your inspiration to start.
