By now, I'm sure most of you have heard of Rent the Runway's new Unlimited offering. For $139 per month, you can have unlimited access to RTR's arsenal of looks from brands like Marni, Elizabeth and James, DVF, Carven, and more. At first thought, $139 per month can seem like a big portion of your budget---and it is, really. However, this service is great for girls working in fashion and creative industries or who hold a position or lifestyle which requires constant outfit changes.
Here are a few ways that you can get the most out of your subscription.
1. Choose versatile statement outerwear to layer over the basics you own.
It is likely that you've already invested in wardrobe basics like a few pair of skinny jeans and a good white t-shirt. For the week, choose three statement pieces from RTR that will breathe new life into your basics. For instance, a unique blazer can be worn with a t-shirt and jeans or layered over a dress for nighttime. A sleeveless vest and flatforms can liven up your work trousers. A leather jacket, of course, goes with just about anything.
2. Plan your weekly outfits around three unique accessories.
Another option is to go the accessories route, selecting three pieces for the week and styling your wardrobe around them.
3. Get creative with special occasion outfits.
Instead of the typical Rent the Runway dress situation, Unlimited allows you to affordably mix-and-match separates to create unique looks for formal events.
