Word of the Day: eschew


The word eschew has appeared in 52 articles on NYTimes.com in the past year, including on May 8 in “What Should I Wear to My Graduation?” by Vanessa Friedman:

The fact that this is an increasingly complicated question is borne out on the current source of all wisdom, TikTok. Search “graduation dress” and the results that pop up feature a variety of ideas, including suits, classic white dresses (another graduation tradition that began more than a century ago and was adopted to symbolize women’s passage from girlhood to adulthood, the innocence of youth and so on) and more.

That alone may be a reason to eschew a white dress. After all, graduation is a time to celebrate you — your achievement in simply reaching that finishing line — as well as the family that helped you get to this point. And what you wear under your robe is one way of doing that.
