If you’re anything like me and have an expensive taste but an empty wallet, then you may have already stumbled across the popular trend of hiring designer outfits for a night out. If you haven’t, you may be thinking, why would anyone want to hire an outfit for just one night? Well, what I and many other style-savvy girls love is that you can wear a designer outfit for an affordable price, because what’s the point in buying an outfit that you’re only going to wear once anyway?

This phenomenon has made its mark not only in Adelaide but around Australia too, with many hiring boutiques now offering nation-wide shipping. Some Adelaide-based hire boutiques have even teamed up with Adelaide make-up artists and hairdressers, making getting ready for a night out that little bit easier.

I’ve put together my go-to hiring boutiques in Adelaide, as well as some interstate ones, to ensure you find the perfect outfit for your next night out.

Adelaide-Based Boutiques

GlamCorner

In a fabulous pivot that caters to our current, strange state of affairs during Covid-times, Glam Corner not only offers amazing designer gowns for the odd night out you might still enjoy, but they now also offer everyday designer-wear so that your office life or zoom meetings can also be wonderful and glam. There’s even a maternity range!

GlamCorner offer hire of a monthly box of designer clothing tailored for your work, your everyday life and anything in between. Simply pick 3 items from their Membership wardrobe and build your Box. For $99/month you can enjoy your hire items for as long as you want, and don’t have to pay for cleaning or postage. Step things up with their $149/month unlimited pack, which means you can have as many boxes as you want in a month! Use code TRIAL30 for $30 OFF your first three months. Limited time only. Conditions apply. Check it out here.
