Event dressing might be all but off the table and holidays few and far between, but if the pandemic has shown us that living a stripped-back lifestyle is the way to go then renting something new (to you) is still the way to go. Here’s five reasons to rent this season.
Weddings might be downsizing for the foreseeable, but reasons for dressing up are feeling all the more special these days. 15 people is still plenty to impress, plus, it’s a requirement for any item that’s listed on Hurr to be professionally dry cleaned by the lender – and anything managed by us is cleaned by Oxwash – meaning it’s safe to do so.
We’ve spent a serious amount of time in the company of our household the last few months – meaning they’ve seen every single skirt, shirt and sock we own. Mix in something new(ish) without any click-happy purchasing to give your outfits (and your mood) a new lease of life.
If there really is an investment purchase you need to make – a coat that will last forever or bag you can’t stop thinking about – why not check it out on HURR and road test it before making your final decision?
If new-season for you normally means new-wardrobe, fight the urge to shop and facilitate your autumn rotation through renting instead. All of the excitement, none of the commitment (and next to none of the carbon footprint too).
If you’re lucky enough to escape Tier 3, a cosy staycation could be on your winter hit list. Rent a capsule wardrobe or some pieces that feel special to make the most of your break.
Meet Bianca Rangecroft, founder of Whering. Launched in 2020, the app that digitises your wardrobe is a fast-growing success. We caught up with Bianca to see why she’s built the answer to our outfit dilemmas, the importance of loving what’s already in your wardrobe and of course, that iconic fashion movie moment which we’ve all been waiting to become reality. Well, wait no longer.
