Budgeting for your wardrobe is a responsible thing to do—and the best clothing rental subscriptions make it easier than ever to have the capsule pieces of your dreams. Over the years, these subscription services have redefined the concept of affordable luxury, making it a lot easier to have a closet that not only reflects your personal style but also where you can test out the latest fashion trends and mix in higher-end items without going overboard.
Instead of dropping money on big-ticket investment pieces that may only get a few wears a year out of fear of destroying them, monthly clothing rental programs give you the flexibility to wear your favorite designers for a fraction of what you would pay retail. In some cases, you can even choose to purchase the item after your rental is up for a discount. They’re also great for tapping when you need a very specific item—say a fall wedding guest dress—but don’t want to splurge on a gown you won’t be keen on wearing again.
So whether you shop regularly to freshen up your back-to-office wardrobe or need a fabulous wedding guest dress for a special occasion, these are the best clothing rental subscription services to match any budget, body type, and style taste.
Our top picks:

Nuuly is a gem for fans of brands like Free People, Citizens of Humanity, and Anthropologie. The service offers everyday essentials from hundreds of brands in a range of petite, regular, and plus sizes. There are also plenty of party dresses and more formal options in the mix. But renting clothes is just one branch of Nuuly. If you like to thrift and reselling, Nuuly is a one-stop shop for finding great archival pieces and rehoming pre-loved items you just aren’t wearing that much anymore.
How it works: For $98/month you can pick six items. Keep what you love and send back what you don’t. The monthly cost includes cleaning and any repairs if you accidentally snag or tear any of the items.

It’s not a stretch to say that Rent the Runway set the bar in many ways for what to expect from a clothing subscriptions. In addition to the plethora of brands offered—including favorites like Good American and Reformation—this OG rental service also carries a ton of celeb-loved labes like Laquan Smith and Gucci. Size ranges vary by designer but RTR uses customer feedback to offer size suggestions on its pieces. (The comments section is particularly helpful when sussing out the right fit for the piece you’re most interested in.) You can also shop pieces on RTR directly in the clearance section; prices are up to 90% off traditional retail.
How it works: There are four rental tiers available. Five items for $94/month, 10 items for $104/month, and 15 items for $149/month, or 20 items for $235/month. Laundry and repairs are included in the price. RTR also offers a one-time rental option for special occasions like a wedding where you don’t see yourself repeating the outfit. (You can reserve your piece as far out as 60 days ahead of time, or in as little as the day before.) Per-piece rentals start at $30 and increase based on the retail price of the item—but for context, you can get a gown that would typically run you north of $800 for just over $100. A return label is included in your package so that you can easily send it back (or drop it off at a location near you) after your event.

Armoire is one of several clothing rental services that have you complete a quiz to help better curate your style selections.

They also note brands that are either woman-owned, like Paige, or owned by women of color, like Gravitas.
How it works: Much like the other services on this list, Armoire works off of a tiered pricing model. Choose four items each month for $79/month, seven items for $119/month, or an unlimited number of swaps for $249/month. The second and third-tier plans are discounted for the first month so that you can feel out the service. Cleaning is also included with all of the plans.

Consider Vivrelle the icing on the clothing rental service cake. Their main focus is on luxury accessories that serve as the finishing touch on your new ‘fits—think legacy names like Chanel, Louis Vuitton, and Prada, alongside cool-girl brands like Loewe and Jacquemus. The selection doesn’t just include bags, you can also shop for top-tier designer and fine jewelry, too.
How it works: There are four tiers with different levels of access: Premier, Classique, Couture, and Couture+. For $45/month (Premier) you can choose select bags or a jewelry item that retails for $1000 or less; $119/month (Classique), you can choose one bag or piece of jewelry worth $4000 or less; $219/month (Couture) gets you a bag or jewelry of any value (including limited edition pieces); and for $309/month (Couture+) the choice of any two items is all yours. There are discounts with each plan if you pay ahead. (Note that there is a three-month minimum subscription required—pre-pay for the year and you get a month free—and you can add on insurance for $18/month.) Either way, when you weigh the retail cost of one bag, it’s kind of a steal.

If browsing for hours to find pieces you like makes you shudder, consider Wantable. The subscription is like having a personal shopper at your disposal who does all the work for you. It’s a try-before-you-buy model, where you keep the items you like for good instead of returning them after a few weeks.
How it works: Start by taking a quiz to determine your overall style vibe. You’ll then choose from one of Wantable’s edits that match the kinds of pieces you need in your wardrobe. There’s a Style Edit filled with every day, work, and dressier pieces. Then there’s an Active Edit that has casual and workout wear. There are regular Theme Edits (think Cozytober or a Zodiac-inspired). There’s also a Sleep Edit and Men’s Active Edit.
Once you choose your edit, a real-life personal stylist puts together a collection of seven pieces for you to try. Send back what you don’t want and pay for what you keep, plus a $20 stylist fee. If you decide to keep at least five things you’ll get 20% off the entire bag. (Items in your edit will range from $50 to $100.) If you want to fill in any gaps you can check out the Stream section of the site and choose one-off pieces to try.
