Wedding Season Survival Guide: Black Tie Dress

"It's not very often that I attend a black tie event, so when a formal wedding presents itself, I often consult Rent The Runway to rent out a gorgeous designer gown - for a fraction of the price! RTR also carries accessories and handbags, so you really can rent out a knockout look at an affordable price. If I wore this stunning and ultra romantic Jill Stuart pink and red number, I know I'd look and feel like a million bucks!" -LivvyLand

"Silk fabric is so elegant it’s an ideal choice for a fancier occasion, and the fit of this maxi is loose and flowy so no clinging or sticking to you if you’re in the blistering summer heat. It’s also a great price point at under $200 and available at Rent the Runway if you feel you’ll only wear it once." -Prosecco and Plaid
