Night of your life

Girlfriend - - GF FORMAL -

for­mal, pfft. Just the most im­por­tant so­cial event of the year, no big­gie... Right now your head’s prob­a­bly swim­ming with ques­tions about what colour eye­shadow to wear with your dress that you haven’t bought yet and if that cute guy in sci­ence is go­ing to pluck up the courage to ask you (se­ri­ously, what is he wait­ing for?). But don’t stress!

We’ve pulled to­gether this one-stop for­mal guide to help you out in the dress de­part­ment, give you ma­jor makeup in­spo AND make sure you slay ev­ery sec­ond of your night of nights – from find­ing a date, right through to han­dling any drama at the af­ters.

But first, be­cause prepa­ra­tion is key and you know I love a good list, here’s a lit­tle head’s up about five things that will most likely go down at your for­mal: 1 There will be one of those fugly mar­ble back­drops set up in the en­trance­way for you and your plus-one/besties to take pro­fesh look­ing pho­tos. If it’s not mar­ble it might be a photo of a red cur­tain, or even bet­ter, a fake night sky with a fake draw­bridge #mag­i­cal­mo­ments. 2

There will be an awk­ward teacher pre­sid­ing over the snack ta­ble look­ing su­u­u­per un­com­fort­able. Pro tip: have a chat to them as you scoff down the mini burg­ers – they’ll prob­a­bly love you for be­ing cool and not avoid­ing them. Brownie points! 3

A ran­dom will be wear­ing the same dress as some­one in your squad and there will be a mi­nor freak­out be­fore they get over it and de­cide to take an all-time twinning selfie. 4 There will be a time near the end of the night when ev­ery­one’s danc­ing to Des­pac­ito (lol) and all the groups come to­gether – and it’s ac­tu­ally so fun. 5

A bunch of peo­ple will leave re­ally early for the af­ters and booooo, farewell them. More space on the dance­floor for you.

Have the best time ever!
