It’s coming up to that time of year where the end of year balls, proms and parties will be coming on in abundance.

Now let’s face it, we all want to look fabulous but the reality is that your student bank account may be looking pretty bare around this time of year.

Well, there’s no need to panic, we are here to show you how you can bag some amazing prom dresses for less. Yes, you shall go to the ball!

Red Prom Dress

BOUTIQUE MARGOT MAXI

We start off with a classic open shoulder cocktail dress from Boohoo.com.

This is a maxi dress with a lovely fishtail detail.

It comes in a choice of 2 colours, a sophisticated black or a deep red if you’d prefer that Pretty Woman look.

Contouring to your body in all the right places, it comes with 5% elastane so it will feel comfortable and it’s machine washable too so no pesky, expensive trips to the dry cleaner.

You can team with some sparkly, metallic open-toed sandals and you’ll be partying the night away looking fantastic.

Available from boohoo.com at just £22.50 which is an absolute steal of a price. Don’t forget there is a Boohoo student discount too. Lovely.

Black Prom Dress

BLACK LACE-UP DRESS

Next, we have this slinky, sleek little number from Pretty Little Thing. It’s a lace-up maxi dress and it comes only in black but let’s face it, the little black dress can be used again and again.

This little baby has some fantastic strapping detail at the back and comes with a scoop neckline and waist cutouts.
We also love the hint of mermaid hem that this stunning dress has and you’ll be flowing as much as the prosecco will be in this number.

Would look absolutely gorgeous teamed up with some silver jewellery and a classic pair of black open-toed shoes.

Available from PLT which also has a student discount and some low prices.

Topshop Prom Dress

COWL NECK SLIP DRESS

Now for something a little different for those students who like something a little different.

This delightful Cowl Neck Slipdress is cut to just below the knee, unlike the longer maxi dresses.

This one comes in a choice of 4 colours, black, red, yellow and blue so you can go for a lovely summery colour.

There are spaghetti straps and some lovely detail in the cowl neck ruffles, a slight ruffle in the bottom hemline and a classic slit up the side for some glamour!

It’s fully machine washable and a snip at just £32 and you’ll want to wear this again and again.

Available now from TopShop which has a lovely student discount too.

Coast prom dress

ELVIE SPOT BELTED DRESS

Now for something completely different. How about this gorgeous number from Coast?

It’s got a totally different shape to your normal ball dress and we love it even more for that fact.

The asymmetric skirt means that it moves beautifully and you’ll definitely get noticed with those retro black polka dots.

The main part of the dress is a bodice too meaning it will hold it’s shaped well.

Why not pair this with some black or white shoes. And you could even add a 50s inspired headscarf instead of the normal tiara.

Available in a good range of sizes and there is a Coast student discount so you can save too.
