The results are in and now former Leaving Cert students are getting ready to celebrate the end of an era in style.

The debutante ball, or debs as we all know it, will take place across Dublin in the coming weeks and months.

To help all you stylish ladies out there, Gazette Style is showcasing just some of the amazing dresses available to buy out there.

There is a dress for every shape and size – it’s really just a matter of finding the right one that makes you feel like the belle of the ball. Don’t be afraid to try new styles and accessorising with bangles, earrings or necklaces. They can really lift a dress if it’s not already filled with statement pieces such as jewels and rhinestone.

But if buying isn’t your thing, then why not rent a dress from dress rental outlets such as The Dress Pantry in Rathborne, Ashtown or Cari’s Closet in Malahide?

These two rental outlets are a girl’s best friend when it comes to getting that red carpet look for your debutante ball without the big price tag.

For further information on dress rentals at Cari’s Closet see www.cariscloset.ie. Meanwhile, The Dress Pantry has a dedicated Facebook account for customers with up-to-date pictures of what’s on offer. Dress rentals range in price from €50 upwards.
