Best dressed: May Day 2016

Oxford was transformed into an array of festival chic and black tie

It was that time of year again! May Day — a day in which getting messy while looking classy is completely acceptable.

And so to celebrate, most of us headed out to either a black tie boat party on the river, May Day Festival, Forbidden festival and/or one of the many after parties that stayed open until sunrise. Whether you’re reminiscing about your night, or simply trying to piece together what little memories you do have of May Day, there’s one thing you should remember — your outfits were absolutely killing it.
