If you are sick of your wardrobe or have a special occasion coming up that requires something fresh, you may want to sign up for a clothing subscription box. These boxes can be sent each month—or even more often—with clothing rentals. Once you are done with the clothes, you simply send them back. Many clothes end up gathering dust in the back of closets or being thrown away, so renting the clothing is very economic and environmentally friendly.
It may seem strange at first to rent clothes, but there are actually many great benefits to reap.
You Can Stay on Top of Changing Trends at a Reasonable Price
When you register for a subscription, a fashion professional curates clothing items for you. This added help is a great way to find clothing that looks good but still fits in your budget.
Updating a wardrobe can be expensive; however, clothing boxes are very affordable. You can often get quite a few outfits each month for a good price. While prices will vary among different companies, you can often get a subscription for between $15 to $60 each month. You will have a wide selection of different shirts, dresses, pants, etc. And when you are all done with something, you just have to send it back.
You Can Try Name Brands for Special Occasions
While many celebrities have substantial wealth, it would be hard for them to afford new name brands for every red carpet event. Instead, celebs typically rent a gown for an evening and then send it back to the designer. You can do something similar with curated clothing subscriptions. If you want to try a designer dress, then you don't have to worry about paying a lot for something you may only wear once. These subscription boxes are great if you need something fancy for a wedding, gala, birthday, or other special event.
You Can Customize Your Boxes With Add-ons
Many curated clothing companies now offer subscriptions for those with specific needs—like those who want plus sizes or petite sizes. This is a great benefit because tailoring is expensive. Unless you have sewing skills, hemming pants or bringing out a waistline may be difficult. Customized boxes allow you to have not only fashionable clothing, but clothing that fits your body type.
Besides body type considerations, some women add makeup to their boxes. For instance, some black women have a hard time finding a foundation that is deep enough in tone and is not ashy. Conversely, very pale women may have a hard time finding foundations that don't make their skin look orangey or pink. Not only do subscription boxes have a wide variety of clothing choices, they have a wide variety of makeup choices.
Lastly, you can add accessories to your subscriptions. If you aren't keen on shopping, a curated women's clothing subscription box is a great way to add bling. Your fashion professional can curate different accessories that will complement your outfits.
