What to wear - The Evening Edition
Oxford doesn't have the biggest clubbing scene but it's still good fun!
Students tend to dress relatively casually in the clubs, other than perhaps on sports' nights, where the sports teams often don their club blazers and ties.
Given that fancy dress is often on the agenda at colleges bops, it's not uncommon to see the Simpson family or a group of Power Rangers on the dance floor!
Wear: relatively casual clothes.
Bop til you drop!
Students often go full-out costume wise for College Bops (fancy dress parties).
Rather than buying new costumes each time, most students get creative and make their own.
Wear: homemade costumes/ a small palette of face paint shared between a group of friends is always handy!
Colleges' rules on what students are expected to wear to formal hall varies. Some have a smart dress code e.g. suits and cocktail dresses whereas others are more relaxed.
Wear: Suit/Cocktail Dress/ Casual clothes - college dependent.
These are usually black-tie affairs held in college where students can invite guests for an evening of fine dining.
Wear: Dinner Suit/Cocktail Dress/ smart trouser & top combo.
For fancy dress get creative, anything from cardboard, to bin bags and an old eye-liner can be the start of a brilliant bop costume!
Although it might seem like you need a lot of clothes, many events require the same dress code, so a staple cocktail dress and suit will be worn again and again.
