These 5 Online Rental Stores Can Get You Your Favourite Designer Looks on a Budget!

Have you had one of those moments where you have a wedding reception to attend, and you look into your wardrobe and say to yourself “I have nothing to wear!” (even though you have stacks of clothes piled up in your closet). Unapologetically, we all hoard tonnes of clothes in our wardrobe, and then we lose interest in them or just forget about them. And that is why we need online rental stores! Why buy something, when we can just rent it?



Why Are Online Rental Stores a Hit?

While the international market is an old player in this industry, India has only recently ventured into the ‘rental store’ domain. Rental stores are a big hit in India because most of us want to wear designer clothes but are unable to do so, because they are so exorbitantly priced. Also, we don’t want to repeat outfits at a marriage party; that’ll be so uncool (especially when the relatives discuss what you’re wearing and who you’re wearing)! With rental stores, all you need to do is rent an outfit and pay the rental amount for as long as you want to keep it with you. If you really like the outfit, some of these stores even let you buy the dress at a nominal price!





5 Online Stores You Can Rent Clothes From for Your Next Big Occasion

First of all, let’s take a moment to stop and be grateful to whoever came up with this genius idea of renting clothing. It has definitely become our fashion saviour! Every time there is a Mehendi or sangeet that you have to attend, a massive amount of pressure builds up to look good and different. This results in you spending a lot of money for one outfit which you wear just once, take a zillion pictures in, and then leave aside to have it collect dust in your wardrobe. But now, thanks to online rental stores, you can get Indian or Western designer wear at a discounted rate. Pretty awesome, right! Let’s look at some of the best rental stores you can opt for, the next time you have a ‘dressing up’ crisis!

They also have an in-house fashion consultant who helps you to choose the right outfit depending on the occasion.
