Whether it's a wedding guest outfit or fun festival attire you're looking for, renting is the way to go.

Buying is no longer the only option when it comes to finding a gorgeous outfit to wear and several Irish rental services have stepped up to cater to the demand for more sustainable fashion choices. 

Here are just a few of our favourites.
