How to: Style Rent the Runway dresses for multiple occasions 

As you may know, I am a Rent the Runway On Campus rep! So, I recently rented some dresses from their website www.renttherunway.com

I took advantage of the free sizing pack. This pack includes three dresses to try on to see what your sizing is. A stylist at Rent the Runway picks out the three dresses for you. 

I got the pack with all size 0 dresses because if it's a zero and doesn't fit its not going to fit! I was super happy with the first dress which was gorgeous! 

The first dress they sent me was a Opening Ceremony dress. There was gorgeous embroidery details in blue, green, silver, and blush pink colors.  It was fitted in the waist then flared out. This silhouette was super flattering on my figure. The dress was cut kind of low but it would be suitable for a party of some sort (nothing wrong with a little skin). 

The first way I styled the dress was how I wore it to class. I kept things super casual and added accessories to dress down the dress. Pairing the dress with a cardigan, scarf, and knee high socks made the dress more relaxed. Also, I wore a rose gold belt to accent the waist even more. 




Casual Look: 
Dress: Rent the Runway 
Scarf: H&M 
Sweater: American Eagle 
Shoes: Sam Eldeman 
Bracelet: BCBG 
Socks: Target 
Earrings: Nordstrom 
Belt: Forever 21 


The next way you could style this look is a "work look". Pair the dress with a simple black or brown blazer to make it more professional. Slip on a pair of boots to match your blazer along with tights or knee socks. You can keep the same accessories or change them based on how professional your job may be. 


Where it's from: 
Dress: Rent the Runway 
Blazer: Nordstrom 
Belt: Forever 21 
Boots: Michael Kors
Socks: Target 
Earrings: Nordstrom 
Bracelet: BCBG 


The final look is a party or going out look. I simply just paired the dress with a pair of Mary jane style heels. Keeping the knee socks on it makes it a little more Blair Waldorf inspired. However, you can wear a pair of tights or nothing at all (depending on your weather situation).

Dress: Rent the Runway 
Socks: Target 
Shoes: Target

Belt: Forever 21 

I did the same thing with another dress that was in the try on pack. This dress is a little more dressy then the other one. However, it doesn't mean that you can't make it a casual look. 

The first look is the party or going out look. Pairing the dress with nude heels it creates a sleek and chic look. The nude in the heels mimics the color under the lace. Also, I paired the dress with a mint statement necklace. Adding a splash of color helps brighten up the look and make it more fun. 


This dress has a lot of pretty details. The lace has a unique pattern and also has silver metallic woven into the fabric. A scalloped lace hem adds a cute small detail to the dress. An open back is also a great detail of the dress. 


Where it's from: 
Dress: Rent the Runway 
Shoes: Jessica Simpson (from Nordstrom) 
Necklace: Silver Linings Shop (CLICK HERE for shop!)


To simplify this look, I added a rhinestone hat and a pair of tall brown boots. You could also slip on a cardigan to make it more cozy and relaxed. The hat not only adds texture and of course sparkle but it keeps your head warm on a cold day. Just by changing the accessories in the look you can dramatically change your outfit. 


Where is it from: 
Dress: Rent the Runway 
Boots: Michael Kors 
Hat: Nordstrom 

So, I hope this has helped you realize you can rent a Rent the Runway dress and wear it more then once when you have it! Wear it to your main even then play with it a few days after. 

Happy Renting!
