5 Dress Styles You Should Consider Renting

In case you hadn’t heard, renting dresses is kind of a big thing. For a fraction of the cost of buying a designer dress, you can rock the hottest looks of the runway at your leisure. Since one of the best things about renting a designer dress is being able to get your hands on something you wouldn’t usually be able to, you should embrace the idea of donning a style you wouldn’t normally wear. These are 5 dress styles you should consider renting.

Step out of your comfort zone and into something surprisingly more amazing.

5 Dress Styles You Should Consider Renting

1. The Mermaid Gown

You don’t have to be a towering, taut goddess to be able to rock a mermaid gown. By definition, mermaid gowns are figure hugging, clinging to your body until they reach your knees, where they flare out (like the tail of a mermaid, get it?). Due to this snug fit, many women without hourglass figures think that mermaid gowns are off-limits. Far from it!

While the basic fit of the mermaid gown is unchanging, there are different style options: strapless, off-the-shoulder, long-sleeved, short-sleeved, spaghetti-strap, halter-top – you name it. These various upper body styles combined with colour and pattern variation can help balance out your body. If you’re really self-conscious, slap on some shapewear, and wear with confidence.

2. The Playsuit

Just because you have a special occasion doesn’t mean you’re confined to dresses or dress pants. Playsuits are fresh, stunning, but anything but standard. A beautiful playsuit can work for a wedding, a bridal shower, or a hot-date. And unlike a dress, you don’t have to grab at your hem in fear of indecent exposure every time there’s a breeze. Don’t limit your imagination limit you: your rental options are as wonderfully surprising as you are.

3. A Lace Dress

Every woman needs to wear a lace dress at least once in her life. Intricate, delicate, and breathtaking, lace dresses are utterly timeless. As soon as you slip it on, you’ll feel like Grace Kelly, Audrey Hepburn and Vivien Leigh – all at once.

While white is a classic choice, you can also rock lace in black, red, blue, silver – whatever colour you can find. (Just remember, unless you’re the bride, white doesn’t fly at a wedding!)

4. A Ball Gown

You may not have dreamed of being a princess when you grew up, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still pine for the chance to wear a beautiful ball gown. Thanks to dress rentals, that dream can be a reality. Before you cringe at the idea of looking like you’re perched atop a tulle cupcake, know that ball gown does not mean ‘big, puffy gown.” A ball gown is simply an ornate floor-length gown intended to be worn to a formal occasion. The crinoline is not mandatory.

5. A Party Dress

Isn’t every dress a party dress? Nope! A party dress is a dress that screams fun. Shorter and playful, these dresses are meant for semi-formal wear. These are the sleek and sophisticated dresses you’ll see at a gala or cocktail party. While sexy, party dresses are all about fun, and they usually express this in their exuberant colours and textures. We’re talking tutu-skirts with sequins. Bright pinks and purples. Bows and ruffles. Pure bubble gum and sprinkles. (The dress your inner-child would want to wear!) So leave your serious self at home and slip into party mode.

If you find yourself in the market for a dress rental and discover you’ve automatically gone to your usual sort of garb, give your head a shake, and remember your options: remember these options!
