When shopping online, consider the option of buying or renting clothes by subscription.
You have all of the latest seasonal fashions with premium labels delivered to your home each month.
You don't even have to launder the clothes before you return them. Just place the worn clothes in the prepaid postage bag and wait for your new box of on-point gear to arrive.
I am not exactly easy on clothes and I worried about the consequences of snagging a sweater, getting a stain, or grass-stain on my rented clothes.
Most clothing by subscription services makes it really inexpensive for you to buy clothing protection. Sometimes for as little as $5 a month.
I always opt for this protection.
This way, I can be worry-free when a three-year-old wipes green cake frosting across the front of my peach, rented sundress--true story.
How clothes by subscription works
You tell your personal shopper what you like, including styles, color, and patterns and they put together outfits that you can buy or rent and return.
I know this sounds too good to be true but I have been saving money and closet space by renting clothes by subscription for more than a year now.
What is great is that you can mix and match them with clothes already in your closet.
As someone who works from home, I buy a few key pieces of clothing, shoes, and belts and mix them with clothes that I receive by mail.
I wear the clothes and return them—unwashed and receive a new batch of clothes.
This allows me to change up my wardrobe often, without spending a lot of money on clothes.
The other benefit to clothes by subscription is that it keeps your clothes style current without having to read fashion magazines and blog posts--except for mine, of course, to stay on trend.
