Wondering what to rent for your next holiday party? If you’re looking for inspiration for your next Rent The Runway shipment, I got you. I feel like I may have tried them all, and these are the best of the bunch, in my humble opinion. We are going in and getting real, so you will see my closet at its messiest. Pickings are running slim during this season, but be advised that pieces are returned every day so get ready to heart.
Here are my picks for the best holiday dresses at Rent The Runway right now:
I was not expecting to love this cobalt gown as much as I do, but it fits like a glove (true to size, in a 6, if between sizes size down), the color is gorgeous, and it’s comfortable and warm. I am saving it as an option for a black tie or a cocktail party on a chilly night.
I wore this plaid mini dress to a gingerbread house decorating party with my kids, and it was perfect for an evening with my children: cute, comfy, not too short, and it even has pockets! I’ll be re-wearing it before it goes back.
This dress looks polished enough to wear to a cocktail party, yet it feels like a warm, cozy sweater. I am either wearing it on Christmas eve for a framily get-together or on New Years Eve at a house party.
I wore this bow embellished dress to the first holiday party of the season and loved it. I read the reviews and sized up two sizes, and I was glad I did. If you are curvy on top or bottom, it is a must.
Bardot Ellis Maxi
This Bardot Maxi fits beautifully (I’m in a medium) and it’s comfortable, but it is definitely daring.
The color of this A.L.C. dress is so stunning and festive, and it works for anything from a house party to black tie. The ruching and cut is so flattering.
This is the second time I’ve rented this little number, and I mean little (size up if you have curves and are over 5’2″). I wore it to an 80’s party in the fall and loved it, and it’s perfect for any holiday cocktail party.
An unexpected sleeper hit for me, I wore this to my mom’s bachelorette party and a holiday themed evening out. It’s flattering and comfortable and true to size (in a small). I kind of regret sending it back.
