Women’s Clothing Rental Subscriptions

1. Rent the Runway: Best for high-end designer clothing.

Check out our review of the Rent the Runway Unlimited service!

Cost: Rent one-off pieces starting at $30 per item, rent month-to-month for $89, or rent on an unlimited basis for $159 per month.

Rent the Runway offers three different rental programs—RTR Reserve (rent pieces on a one-off basis, starting at $30), RTR Update (rent 4+ pieces each month for $89 per month), and RTR Unlimited (4+ rentals that you can rent on an unlimited basis for $159 per month). Rent the Runway is known for its high-end, designer dresses (including everything from Diane Von Furstenberg cocktail dresses to Badgley Mischka bridal gowns), but they also day-to-day essentials like JCrew jackets, Levi’s jeans, and BB Dakota blouses. Plus, they offer jewelry and accessories like sunglasses and handbags to finish your look.

2. Gwynnie Bee: Best for cute workwear, jeans, & more for sizes 0-32.

Gwynnie Bee

Cost: Plans start at $49 per month.

Gwynnie Bee started out as a fashion destination just for plus-size customers, but they’ve since expanded to offer dresses, separates, denim, workwear, and more for sizes 0-32. We especially love their bright, patterned fit-and-flare dresses and polished, yet comfy blouses. Rent up to ten items at a time and swap them out for new pieces whenever you’d like. (You can swap out however many pieces you’d like at a time, too⁠—for example, you could return the party dress you got right after you wear it, but hang onto those amazing jeans for a month, two months… it’s up to you!)

3. Vince Unfold: Best for satisfying a chic, yet understated aesthetic.

Vince Unfold Review

Cost: $160 per month.

A Vince Unfold membership gives you access to an ever-expanding closet of high-quality Vince-brand dresses and separates. Add your preferred pieces to the wishlist in your account, and Vince will pick four of those pieces to send your way. Swap them out for four new pieces as often as you’d like. If you’re a fan of a more understated, modern aesthetic, Vince’s sleek silhouettes, elegant patterns, and minimalist palettes should suit your style beautifully.

4. Le Tote: Best for trying new trends.

Cost: Plans start at $69 per month.

Le Tote lets you try a new set of hip separates, dresses, and more on a monthly basis. Keep the pieces as long as you’d like—once you return them, you’ll be eligible for a new set of items on your next invoice date. We like that Le Tote features familiar fashion-forward brands like Calvin Klein, Free People, and Rachel Roy, and that they offer maternity options and accessories, too. Rent up to 10 clothing items and as many as 5 accessories per month.

5. Infinite Style by Ann Taylor: Best classic work looks. (Petites, too!)

Infinite Style by Ann Taylor Box February 2018 Box Inside

Cost: $95 per month.

Infinite Style lets you rent three Ann Taylor pieces at a time (including tops, bottoms, denim, workwear, and dresses) and swap whenever you want. Ann Taylor is known for their contemporary, put-together pieces, including great picks for the office. (We think Infinite Style is a particularly smart pick for folks who want to diversify their work wardrobe, but don’t want to spend more than they have to.) One of our favorite things about this subscription? They offer petites, which can be hard to find, especially in the rental space.

Try Infinite Style >>

6. Infinitely LOFT: Best size range (regular, plus, petite, tall, & maternity).

Cost: $64.95 per month.

Infinitely LOFT works just like Infinite Style, but features the more laid-back looks of Ann Taylor’s sister shop, LOFT. Add items from the Infinitely LOFT catalog to your online “Closet”, and receive a set of three of those looks to keep for as long as you’d like. When you’re done, just send them back to get something new sent your way ASAP. LOFT’s aesthetic is great for giving your work wardrobe a fresh, pretty twist, or for dressing up a casual outfit just so.

8. The Ms. Collection: Best for folks who need help curating their wardrobe.

Cost: Plans start at $59 per month.

The Ms. Collection is a rental subscription that works like a personal styling service. When you sign up, you’ll fill out a style profile, noting your preferences and sizing. Then, a stylist will pick up to four unique, contemporary items (from brands like BB Dakota, Karen Kane, and London Times) that you can rent either for the month, or on an unlimited basis (depending on your plan). Unlike other programs, you don’t get to pick the items for yourself—each box is a surprise. That said, we love this box as an alternative to traditional styling services. Rather than just trying your stylist’s picks on in your home, you can wear them out and about. And if you love a particular piece, you can buy it for a discount! (P.S. There’s also a Mr. Collection for menswear! Keep scrolling for more details…)

10. Rebecca Taylor RNTD: Best unique looks for events & parties.

Cost: $159 per month.

Rebecca Taylor’s RNTD ($159 per month) lets you try 4 of the designer brand’s fresh, eye-catching separates, dresses, jeans, and more on an unlimited basis. Pick at least 10 of your favorite items from their rental catalog, and they’ll pick 4 to send your way. (You can note which items you’d like them to prioritize, too.) We love the unique silhouettes and patterns you can try with this rental subscription—everything from tailored suiting to fluttery animal-print dresses complete with cool cutouts.

11. Express Style Trial: Best modern workwear.

Cost: $69.95 per month.

With Express Style Trial, you can try Express-brand dresses, separates, workwear, and more on an unlimited basis. Shop their rental catalog, and add your favorite looks to the wishlist in your account. (The folks at Express Style Trial recommend keeping at least 20 items in your wishlist at all times.) You’ll get 3 of those preferred pieces to rent for as long as you’d like. Once you’re done, just send them back to have 3 more pieces picked out for you. If you love Express’s modern designs and sleek, sexy details, it’s worth giving this rental program a try.

12. Haverdash: Best for getting out of a style rut.

Cost: $59 per month.

Haverdash offers a wide range of department-store-quality separates, dresses, and more in unique, of-the-moment cuts and patterns. We like that they seem to have a mix of hip, cool designs (ruffled jumpsuits, kick-flare jeans, reimagined retro patterns) as well as more traditional go-tos (solid-color T-shirt dresses, office-appropriate blouses, versatile skinny jeans). As with other programs on this list, Haverdash has members add their favorite looks to their online “Closet.” They’ll send out three items from that list at a time—wear them as long as you’d like, then swap them out for a new set.

Try Haverdash >>

 

13. NY&C Closet: Best range of styles.

Cost: $49.95 per month.

NY&C Closet lets you rent 3 pieces at a time from a selection of NY&C-brand dresses, separates, denim, and workwear. The price is great—it’s on the lower end as far as unlimited clothing rental subscriptions go—and the styles range from casual tees and shorts to flowy, floral print dresses and sleek jumpsuits. Like other services on this list, NY&C Closet has you add your favorite items to your virtual “Closet”, then they pick which 3 of those pieces you end up with. If you’re already a fan of the NY&C aesthetic, this program could be a great way to experiment with new looks without spending as much as you would buying as many items outright.

14. AE Style Drop by American Eagle: Best denim & everyday clothes.

Cost: $49.95 per month.

AE Style Drop is a great way to experiment with casual styles American Eagle is known for. Think cool, comfy denim, laid-back tops, tanks, and blouses, boho-inspired dresses, and more. Add your favorite looks to your online “Closet,” and AE Style Drop will pick 3 of those pieces to send your way. Swap them out for a new set as often or infrequently as you’d like.

15. nuuly by Urban Outfitters: Best for adventurous tastes.

Cost: $88 per month.

nuuly is a rental subscription from URBN, the company behind names like Urban Outfitters, Anthropologie, and Free People. nuuly lets members rent 6 pieces at a time from URBN’s entire family of brands on a monthly basis. Return your rentals by your monthly return date, and they’ll send you a new set of pieces to try. It’s a great pick if you’re into URBN’s unique taste in workwear, denim, and party dresses, and even better if you love vintage pieces like robes, jackets, and band tees. (Yep, they offer real vintage clothing, too!)

16. Armoire: Best rental company with a conscience.

Cost: $149 per month.

Armoire includes the guidance of a personal styling service to the rental process. Share your sizing and preferences with them via a simple quiz, and Armoire will share an assortment of up to 15 products that they think will fit your needs. (Dislike some of the pieces? Choose to swap them out.) Armoire then picks 4 of those looks to send to you. Keep them as long as you’d like, buy pieces you’ve grown attached to, or return your items for free to get something new. We like that they offer sizes 0-16W as well as maternity clothes. We also like the brand’s commitment to women’s empowerment. (Check out their “BSS LDY PWR” tees, social media stories about professional women, and Dress for Success partnership.)

Men’s Clothing Rental Subscriptions

17. The Mr. Collection: Best for guys who need some help with their style.

Cost: Plans start at $59 per month.

If you haven’t guessed, the Mr. Collection is the men’s version of The Ms. Collection and offers up to 4 pieces of contemporary men’s clothing per box. The Mr. Collection works like a styling service—they’ll collect your sizing and style information, then pick department-store-quality clothes for you to try on a monthly or unlimited basis (depending on your plan). As with traditional personal styling services, the Mr. Collection is a great way to try out new trends or brands. But because you’re renting, you can wear what you get as if it was a part of your closet already. (Other personal styling services expect pieces to be tried on and sent back, not worn out and about.) If you find something you really like, you can keep it for a discounted price! We like the range of comfortable to crisp and classy separates we’ve seen from the Mr. Collection.

18. The Black Tux: Best for special events.

Cost: Suit rentals start at $95.

The Black Tux promises to make the process of renting formalwear easy and convenient with free at-home try-on services you can schedule in advance of your occasion, and a ton of awesome styles to choose from. (Classic black tux? No problem. Plaid? Pinstripes? Pink? They’ve got that, too.) We also like that they offer accessories like ties and cufflinks to complete your look. And unlike other services on this list, you get to pick the exact item you want to rent and when.

Add bracelets, earrings, rings, and necklaces from designers like Alex and Ani, Gorjana, and Kate Spade to your “Wishlist”, and Rocksbox will send you a set of three pieces, including at least one of your Wishlist looks. Swap them for something new whenever you’d like, or keep the pieces you love for a discounted price.

  1. I’ve now tried Rent the Runway, Le Tote, and Armoire.

    Rent the Runway is great for events/special occasions. Very trendy styles that I wouldn’t want to invest in for one season. The app is great — very easy to use and navigate, however it took me a while to select my items due to the endless scroll factor. The shipping was slow (I’m on the west coast) and the clothes came in individual plastic bags which seemed like a waste. I ended up cancelling because it didn’t seem worth the price for the slow shipping.

    Signing up for Le Tote was very odd. The packages were confusing and so was the sign up process. When I finally got access to view my styles, the retail prices were really cheap (around $60). The clothes fit well, but I had a really hard time finding 4 options I loved. I’m going to end up cancelling because I feel I could get the same value at an H&M which is what I’m trying to avoid!

    Armoire is by far my favorite of the 3. The clothes were great (I even had a few pieces with tags on them!), everything fit, shipping was super speedy, and customer service was super friendly and helpful. I love that the membership includes help from a stylist. I really like the variety of clothing Armoire offers. I was able to select items for work, weekend, and a wedding. I also like supporting a small women-owned business!

  2. I’ve tried Le Tote and currently use both RTR and Armoire. They both offer great designer items. I often get new items from Armoire and the the customer service is great. RTR has sent me a few items that have either been stained or really worn – but mostly the items are pretty nice.

    Le Tote sent me items that I could purchase for $9 (bracelet) $37 (handbag) and $24 (dress). I cancelled since the items were really cheap and low end, plus the purchase price was basically lower than renting the items. The accessories are really low quality and I couldn’t find clothing items I wanted to wear and didn’t recognize most of the brands.

  3. The Ann Taylor coupon takes you to le tote and don’t see any option to enter the code manually ;(

  4. I’ve tried Le Tote a few times. FYI-one time, there was shirt I was interested in purchasing. The Le Tote cost was $72. Went to the brand website and was directed from there to Amazon where it was $30 plus a 60% off coupon….$12!!! So glad I checked.

  5. Interesting to see all the different options, but I can never get onboard with clothing rentals. I would live in fear of staining an item or washing something the wrong way and ruining it.

    • I am a frequent rent the runway user and have stained items and lost buttons occasionally with no issues.

  6. Great article Anna! I’ve only tried Express and Ann Taylor so far. I cancelled Express because they added too many new members without increasing their inventory so there was never any options available in my size (M 8-10).
    I’ve had Ann Taylor for 2 months now and I really like it. They ship new items really fast so I’ve been trying 12-15 items each month. I also like the option of keeping the items I like and buying them at 70-80% off

    • Thanks JoannaNYC <3 Loved reading your take on Express Style Trial and Infinite Style - keep me posted if you try anything else!!!

    • Thanks for sharing your experience. I’m excited to try Ann Taylor.

      • I tried it and love it! I’m in the process of losing a lot of baby weight and don’t want to keep buying new clothes. Infinitely Loft is my new go to. The shipping was fast to receive. I haven’t sent it back yet because I love what came.
