Shop Cocktail Dresses: Trina Turk // BCBG // Nanette Lepore // BCBG // Nicole Miller // Helmut Lang // Cynthia Rowley // Robert Rodriguez // Versace Collection

We all have that dress, or maybe even dresses — those pieces that you bought for a special occasion or event and have never worn again! Now they just hang in your closet for whatever reason, maybe your taste simply changed, or you just don’t want to repeat an outfit at two weddings for fear someone will recognize.
This is where Rent the Runway comes into play. Instead of having to go out each time you get an invitation in the mail and spend a portion of your hard-earned paycheck, Rent the Runway lets you choose from a huge selection of designer dresses that you can rent for your event at a fraction of the retail cost.
Once you’ve worn it, you simply it send back when the party’s over! You can choose from their massive selection online, or if you’re in Chicago you can go into their store located in the Gold Coast. But they don’t just cover the dress, you can also shop accessories to rent as well, making that one less thing to hunt for and spend your cash on.
Another thing to love about the service is that you receive the garment in the size you request, but they will also send you another size, so no worrying if you’re guessing is on point! Perfect if you’ve never worn a certain designer before and are unsure about how their sizing runs. The best part? Enjoy $25 off your first order of $75 or more.
