Whether it’s for a school formal, a black-tie event, gala dinners, a cocktail party, walking the red carpet or your best friend’s wedding, there are plenty of events where formal dresses or gowns are required, but finding just the right evening dress is not always easy!

Whatever the occasion, for many women finding a formal dress involves spending hours going from shop to shop, and not only is it time-consuming but it can cost you a fortune. What if there was an easier and cheaper way to find the perfect formal gown for your next special event? When it comes to formal dresses, a more affordable and less stressful alternative is to hire one online from The Volte. Formal events are few and far between and chances are you’ll only wear each formal dress a handful of times, which is why it makes sense to rent a dress rather than to buy one. Renting formal dresses will cost a fraction of the price of buying a new one, and then you can create a new look every time you go to a formal event. At The Volte, we have formal dresses available for hire from some amazing fashion designers including brands such as Elle Zeitoune, Lexi, Alex Perry, Bec + Bridge and many more. With so many gorgeous formal dresses to choose from, you’ll be spoilt for choice.

How to choose formal dresses?

It’s important that you feel confident in what you are wearing, so you need to choose a dress that you feel comfortable in and that fits you well. So with so many different designs and styles to choose from, how do you decide which formal dress to hire? It really comes down to your tastes, the type of event you are going to and what is most flattering for your figure. Whether you decide to choose a formal dress that you can make an entrance in, or decide to go for something a bit more subtle is totally up to you. We have formal dresses for hire to suit everyone’s tastes.

Whether you prefer strapless, capped sleeves, spaghetti straps, off-the-shoulder, backless or halter neck, you can pick the style that is most flattering to you. With a variety of lengths, fabrics, colours and patterns, the options are endless. From an elegant Lexi deep green long dress made from polyester satin or a charming Bec & Bridge polka dot midi dress with a side split to a pretty Scanlan Theodore pink layered silk dress, we have a range of formal dresses from maxi to mini and everything in between. Ranging from size 2 to plus size, our formal dresses cater for all shapes and sizes.

If you want to book your formal dresses in advance, you can send a booking request directly to the lender. Alternatively, if you need a formal dress at the last minute, your best option is to filter your ‘borrow’ options so you can browse through the formal dresses that are available in the city closest to you. You can then liaise with the lender directly to make pickup arrangements or confirm that express postage is available. Our standard dress hire time for formal dresses is 4 days, but if you want to make sure it fits perfectly, many formal dresses come with the option of hiring it for one day to try it on and then putting through a full-hire booking once you’ve seen that it fits and you’d like to wear it.

How to style formal dresses?

Once you’ve chosen your formal dress, you can then decide on the best way to style it so you’ll really be dressed to impress. The great news is, at The Volte as well as hiring formal dresses you can rent shoes and accessories too. From designer evening bags or a sparkly belt to an elegant tiara or stylish headpiece, you can hire just what you need to complete your outfit. From shiny silver heels to classic black sandals, we have a wide selection of shoes for hire too. And let’s not forget the jewellery. From a gold Christian Dior necklace or a Fallon wrap choker to a silver Chanel brooch or Christie Nicolaides Zoe Earrings, you’ll look even more amazing with some extra sparkle.
