Black-Tie Dress Code Got You Stressed? Rent These Beauties Instead

Black-Tie Dress Code Got You Stressed? Rent These Beauties Instead

Save yourself a boatload this New Year’s Eve by renting these dresses.

By Courtney Thompson

 New Year’s Eve is just days away, and if you’ve got a black-tie function on the docket, you’re likely stressing about getting a gown. Not just any gown will do—you want to look and feel gorgeous, and finding a dress that can do just that is going to cost a pretty penny.

Since your calendar isn’t chock full of black-tie affairs, maybe, just maybe, renting a gown makes more sense this year. That way you rock the designer dress of your dreams—like the butterfly-adorned Marchesa number we’ve selected below—without actually paying for said dream dress (turns out butterflies are expensive—the dress retails for almost $1,200 but can be yours for a few days for a mere $180). We’ve rounded up 11 stunning Rent the Runway gowns that will look amazing in all those Insta videos you know you’re going to post just before the ball drops. Just be sure to order by noon ET on Friday, December 30 in order to receive the dress before party time on Saturday.
