What to Wear: May Ball 2018

In its final week of ticket sales, May Ball fashion takes priority.

May Ball is many things: the final ball of the semester, the largest Kinkell Byre event of the year, and the best opportunity to dress to the nines. Thousands of photos are uploaded annually in the days following the Kate Kennedy Club’s charity fête – including a handful from Tatler. This year in particular, guests can expect an evening worthy of their finest black tie. Yungen, Redline, and Sam Feldt will be headlining, and VIP perks have reached record heights.

Stretchy Material 

Form-fitting gowns and body-con minis tend to be unforgiving on the midsection. This year, the VIP marquee will contain complimentary churros, donuts, and a variety of flavoured popcorn, while Wild Fire Pizza and the Belgian Waffle Tuk will be stationed outside. Hungry guests are advised to wear dresses that can stretch alongside their stomachs.

Long Gowns 

The question of length is often paramount in regards to black tie events. In the case of May Ball, long skirts are most commonly seen. As the biggest bash of the academic calendar, the ball warrants a high element of class. That said, you would be well-advised to stop at the ankles, to avoid tripping in the bar queues.

Jump Suits

In recent years, some guests have eschewed the traditional trappings of black tie, instead going for a more edgy alternative. Jumpsuits, when done right, can mesh well with the ball’s decorations.


May Ball’s fairgrounds rides are always an area of intense interest. Fans of dodgems and La Bamba will find their dismount made slightly easier with wedges, instead of stilettos. Dancing will also be far less painful – and between the headlining DJs and student music collective Bpm, guests can expect to spend a fair amount of time on the dance floor.

Final tickets to May Ball can be bought via FIXR. With limited numbers of VIP and Standard tickets left, guests are advised to place their ASOS orders now to avoid disappointment.
