Balls on a budget


By Ruby Gleeson

Online Style Editor Ruby Gleeson offers some style picks for formal outfits on a student budget

Got a ball coming up and don’t know what to wear? Fear not- Style have you covered this festive season. Whether it’s the infamous law ball or an informal lacrosse social, here are some of our favourites on a student budget.

With Missguided currently offering up to 70% off, take a look at this gold satin number for those looking to embrace their inner bond girl.


For those looking for something more casual, we adore this monochrome, plunge mini dress, adorned with on-trend contrast stitching and super-structured panels.


Prefer a more practical piece? Why not take a change on this Kimono style jumpsuit- perfect for all festive occasions and ever so casual yet chic- we advise pairing this with chunky boots and statement hoops.


Formal meets edgy- Splurge on a Bardot inspired, animal print midi dress. Although it is on the pricier side of £39.99, we adore the ruffle sleeves and button down neckline- ideal for a classier take on leopard print.
