You’ll also be delightfully surprised at all of the new labels being added every week. “This fall, we’ve added a number of compelling new designers to our rental rotation, including Altuzarra, gu_de, House of Sunny, Little Liffner, MUNTHE, Rotate Birger Christensen, and more,” adds Salinas.
Recently, the subscription service also teamed up with West Elm. “Now members can refresh their spaces as often as they change up their wardrobes, to better reflect their style, mood and life stage in real time,” says Salinas.
How it works: All three memberships allow you to rent four items at a time and keep them as long as you want. The first tier costs $89 a month (after a $69 trial) and gives renters one shipment and access to basic closet items valued at $350 or less. If you want two shipments (a total of 8 items to rent per month), the next option is the $135 per month membership. Rent the Runway calls it the Most Loved program and it includes full closet access to items valued at up to $3,500 per month. The third option gives renters the same access, plus four shipments per month, which equals up to 16 items every 30 days. Returns are made easy with pre-paid shipping and reusable garment bags for all tier levels.
Turn your wardrobe into an ever-evolving minimalist heaven by joining Vince’s rental program. While you won’t get to experiment with different brands, the label is constantly adding new styles for men and women to browse through each week—like peanut butter-colored leather jackets and olive silk dresses.
How it works: Vince Unfold’s rental program is straightforward. Renters get to enjoy four items at a time, and they have the added benefit of enjoying an unlimited amount of exchanges for $160 per month. Keep them as long as you want. Whenever you’re ready, return rented items in the pre-paid bag.
Those looking for help from a personal stylist will enjoy Armoire. After taking a style quiz, Armoire uses professional stylists and an algorithm to curate a custom closet for users.
How it works: There are three plans to choose from: four items for $79, seven for $119, or an unlimited number for $249 per month. While the first two plans only allow renters to receive one case per month. If you decide to keep items for longer than a month, don’t worry because any unused cases are rolled over. That way you’ll never pay for extra cases you don’t receive. The best part: All membership tiers include free shipping both ways and can be paused or cancelled at any time.
While most rental services curate a collection of items to loan out to customers, Tulerie stands out because the platform enables users to rent directly from other users. It’s like borrowing from your friends, but even better. “We took a very old concept, modernized it, and expanded the friend group to borrow from,” says Tulerie founder and CEO Violet Gross. The peer-to-peer rental service means you can find something new to wear through the app or lend out pieces from your own wardrobe. There’s also a re-sell option for lenders who are ready to part ways with their pre-loved items.
