As I attempt to make more sustainable shopping choices, I’ve been exploring options outside of buying better (but less) and pre-owned. That’s how Rent the Runway’s membership plans got on my radar. I’ve always been a little apprehensive about renting clothes (outside of costumes) because if I really loved something, I would just buy it and restyle it in different ways later. However, I was really sold on the fact that you can rent multiple designer pieces each month and even swap them out for less than retail. Fashion really doesn’t get better than having fresh new pieces to wear regularly – and at an affordable price. Today, I’m really excited to be partnering with Rent the Runway to share all the things I love about their 8-item membership plan. If you’re interested, you can also use my code MIAMIAMINE to save 40% off your first two months.
How It Works
Rent the Runway has three membership plans, allowing you to rent 4, 8 or 16 items. I’ll be covering the 8-item plan today since I believe it’s truly the best value for everyone. It’s just so easy to create new and different looks weekly with 8 pieces, especially when you mix them with your existing closet.
Under this plan, you receive 2 shipments per month and can pick four items at a time. You can hold onto any 4 items or swap them out twice/month. You’re not responsible for shipping, returns, dry cleaning, insurance or anything like that. Best of all, this plan gives you access to Rent the Runway’s full closet for just $135 per month (plus, save 40% off two months using code MIAMIAMINE).
With all those perks, you can refresh your closet anytime, which is going to be key as offices open back up to employees this fall. You also get to test drive the latest styles and trends that aren’t necessarily forever pieces. Finally, you can consider yourself covered when it comes to special occasions from weddings to holiday parties. Scroll ahead to see some of the pieces I picked out and have worn so far!
Getting back into the groove of workwear can be a bit hectic right now, especially as you return to a normal dress code after a year of comfy, quarantine style. If you’re not sure what to buy for the office this fall, I always recommend sticking to the classics. I love neutral, versatile tops, smart outerwear, pencil skirts, and wide leg trousers. This look I picked out from Rent the Runway is a chic cocktail of professional, stylish and minimal. The camel coat is a staple that you can wear everyday. I’d still wear this look today for in-person meetings.
Mixing casual pieces with more tailored ones is distinct part of my style. A Rent the Runway membership makes it possible for you to have all of that without blowing your budget. These leather joggers are so on-trend for fall but probably aren’t super classic, so it made complete sense to just rent them. The camel coat, is another story and will take you from the office to the weekends. If you decide to buy an item you selected, you can also do that through Rent the Runway.
Rent the Runway is infamous for its dress rental service, and I’ve known so many girls who love it for weddings and black tie events. However, you have even more options to pick from in the membership plans, including skirts, tops, accessories, and the pieces I mentioned above. If your fall and winter social calendar is booking up quick, the formal clothing options will make your membership more than worth it.
A Rent The Runway membership is an investment that pays for itself if you love fashion and often switch up your wardrobe. It allows you to wear quality trends without committing to high prices. At the same time, you can wear more luxury, fancy items without breaking the bank. If you’re trying to pinpoint your personal style, it’s also great for that thanks to its broad and stylish selection of items from workwear to weekend wear and formal dresses. Overall, I really enjoyed the service and would recommend it.
