We love these products, and we hope you do too. E! has affiliate relationships, so we may get a small share of the revenue from your purchases. Items are sold by the retailer, not E!. Prices are accurate as of publish time.

We are always trying to build our wardrobe with closet staples and standout pieces, but there are plenty of advantages to not committing to styles right away. Fashion subscription boxes are the way to go for many reasons. You get access to designer brands at a discounted rate. You don't have to do laundry and you can skip out on dry cleaning. 

If you love a constantly rotating wardrobe, you can be eco-conscious by renting your clothes for a short period of time. If you're not at your typical weight and you don't want to commit to permanently owning new clothes in a different size, renting is a perfect solution. Even if you just love the idea of being fashionable, but you don't have the time or interest to pick out clothes, there are subscription options to suit your needs, with stylists choosing your pieces for you. No matter what your needs are, there is a subscription option to suit your style and budget. Check out some of our favorites.

Rent The Runway

Rent the Runway is great for special occasions (hello, wedding season) with options to rent pieces for four days or eight days. You can select backup styles and even get another in a different size. You don't have to wash the clothes or pay for shipping. That's all included. It doesn't get any easier than that. And if you're not currently at your typical clothing size or you just tend to fluctuate size-wise, this is a great option to get exactly what works for you at the moment. That's not all though. You can make Rent the Runway a part of your everyday life with its membership plans to gain access to a forever-rotating closet of designer clothing, accessories, and more. There are no minimum time commitments and you can pause or cancel any time you want.

There are options to receive four items twice a month ($135 monthly), shipments with four items three times a month ($174 monthly), or shipments with four items four times a month ($199 a month). If there's an item you want to keep a little bit longer, you can hold to it as long as you're a member. And if you really love something, you can purchase it to keep it forever.

Nordstrom Trunk Club

If you want to add to your closet, but you just want someone else to do the styling, we love Nordstrom's Trunk Club. You get to shop thousands of Nordstrom's top brands in a wide range of styles and colors on your budget. Just take a quiz and a stylist will pick out items for you to try. If you don't love them, send them back. Keep what you want. There is free shipping and the returns are free too. You can even just drop off the items you don't love at your local Nordstrom. No subscription is required and there are no hidden fees. Just pay a $25 styling fee, but that fee goes toward the rest of your purchase for the styles you decide to keep.
