How convenient. Well, I wouldn't go for an all out ballgown. Either a nice skirt/trousers and dressy top, or a tailored suit - I'd go for the first option myself. Shoes are up to you - if you're comfortable in heels, wear them, if not, pretty, flat shoes will be fine. If you do wear a skirt, it shouldn't be too short, but don't worry about having it down to your ankles either.

I would agree with the above. I'm at Grey and to formals the majority of girls wear a smart skirt and dressy top I would say though there is no problem with smart trousers either. Don't worry too much about it, they're be a range.

I assume this is the one on the 22/23 - 23/24 March open day? I wanna go to this but at Collingwood college - anyone know if this is formal? Doesn't say anything about that on the letter!

I dont think its a formal unless it says so on the open day invitation letter. All i know so far is that St Chad's is a formal i think

I'm going in March to St Chad's and have started to worry about the whole formal dress code thing! Oh well, it's a good excuse for a major shopping expedition!
Anyone else gong to Chad's too?

Can't go wrong with long skirt (black or very dark colour), and a non-fussy blouse. DEFINITELY NOT a dress or ball gown, it is not that kind of dinner! (I've been to durham so trust me!)

Not at all. Not floor length; that'll look stupid. Whatever length looks nice on you.

As long as you look attractive no one will particularly care what you wear - if youre ugly start worrying

Does anyone know if there's anything like this at Aidan's? It'd be cool if there was!

I e-mailed some one in the know at Collingwood, and they said that it wasn't formal - just a meal so you can get to know what the experience of having and everyday meal at the college was like. Dunno about any of the other colleges tho.
