If you’re like me, whenever you hear ‘Rent The Runway‘ you assume it’s a place where your daughter rents dresses for black tie weddings. Wrong. Yes, plenty of people rent dresses for weddings but it’s evolved into so much more than that. After subscribing to their unlimited plan for three months, I’m here to tell you that Rent the Runway is a great, affordable way to keep your wardrobe fresh and exciting. It’s easy to use, versatile, and full of options from the latest designer collections. It’s a no-brainer, really.
I’ll admit it took me a little bit of time to get up to speed on the concept, but once I downloaded the easy-to-use app I was off and running. The Rent the Runway unlimited plan lets me choose 4 things at a time. Everything ships quickly, and they make it super easy to send the garments back when you’re done. As soon as I was done with something, I just sent it back and picked out a new piece. It was really fun to get out of my fashion comfort zone, because I could rent pieces I would never usually buy. Picking out new silhouettes and designers reminded me just how much fun it is to be creative and adventurous with my wardrobe.
Here’s a Tory Burch skirt I rented, which is dramatic and colorful and loud. Because it’s such a big look, I could never justify buying it. After renting it, I ended up wearing it way more than I thought I would. So many people gave me compliments and asked where I got it. When it comes to color, I tend to stick to neutrals so it was fun to play around with something a little crazier. And when I did eventually get tired of it, I just sent it back in.
I love sundresses for the summer, and this one by Co. was right up my alley. It was perfect for everyday, As you can see I was shopping at the Design Center this day.
Ok, one more pic. It was my birthday and my adorable husband hosted a dinner party for me, along with some of my close friends. I needed a birthday-worthy outfit, and this dress by Jill Sanders Navy did not disappoint. I loved it so much that I had to keep it for myself. When the season comes to the end, as a member you’re able to buy the clothes at a serious discount. This one was 75% off, which is pretty fantastic perk.
So in conclusion, Rent the Runway is easy and fun. There are 3 different rental options, depending on what your needs. The one time rental starts at $30, up to the RTR unlimited which cost $159 a month. There’s a special deal to try RTR Unlimited for $80 the first 60 days, so there’s really no excuse not to try it.
The world is your oyster on Rent the Runway. I only rented clothing, but they have tons of accessories too. They even just added new program to rent kids clothes and a partnership with West Elm for furniture. Get crazy, get creative, and go check out the different plans at Rent The Runway…and enjoy!!!!
