Wedding season is upon us, and our invites are starting to roll in. Which is awesome, because who doesn’t love a summer wedding? No one, that’s who. But if you’re like us, your closet is badly in need of new cocktail frocks. And while you want a different dress for each wedding, you don’t have the budget for a slew of new $300+ purchases. We get it. Which is why we reached out to Rent the Runway to show us the hottest trends and options that we can RENT for the upcoming batch of nuptials. Keeping our savings account intact while also never repeating a look on Instagram? Yep, that’s exactly what we’re in need of.
Below we’ve got six categories—chock full of the hottest designers like Peter Pilotto, Christian Siriano and Cushnie et Ochs—that Rent The Runway’s SVP of Merchandising Sarah Tam picked out for y’all, with rental prices starting at just $40. What’s Tam’s favorite look for this summer? "Yellow is the color this season, from mustard to chartreuse to a bright zingy lemon yellow,” she advises.
Oh, and Tam's got your statement earrings covered too, ensuring you’re the most put-together babe at the wedding. Besides the bride, of course. So, let's all say "Cheers!" to the happy couple—and to you looking like a million bucks (for way, way less than that) this summer!
