If your teen wants to wear a $1,800 dress to prom, get it for only $95 from Rent the Runway!

Don't break the bank on a dress that your teen is most likely only going to wear once. Dress rental services like Rent the Runway (RTR) make it possible to rock a designer dress at affordable prices.

Choose from four- or eight-day rentals, where you can rent a dress for as little as $30. While RTR is most popular for its dress rentals, they also have jewelry and handbags available to help you complete your look.

If your teen has multiple events to attend where they might need a few outfits we recommend trying the unlimited feature. With unlimited you can have four pieces out at a time with access to dresses (casual and formal), along with skirts, tops, pants, jackets, and more. Unlike the four- or eight-day rentals, there isn’t a time restraint on when you need to return your items.

Here are some of our favorites trends—floral, asymmetrical, red carpet, and animal print—that your teen will love.
