If you’re wanting to shop more sustainably but miss the thrill of something new, wardrobe rental services provide the perfect solution. Hannah recently hired a dreamy Ghost dress for her birthday dinner and would 100% do it again, and you can even rent maternity clothes to save you spending on a load of things you’re only going get a few months wear out of.
Whilst most rental sites let you borrow designer pieces for a fraction of the retail price, high street stores are getting in on the action too – you can rent M&S styles from Hirestreet, and we’ve just seen one of our fave influncers Cat Patterson showcasing LK Bennett’s brilliant LK Borrowed rental service.
Loved by the likes of Kate Middleton and Holly Willoughby, the British brand specialises in feminine dresses, beautiful prints, statement heels and some very chic accessories, which, whilst well-made and timeless, tend to come with a hefty price tag. With LK Borrowed, you can rent two LK Bennett pieces a month for £79 – less than half the price of one of their signature frocks – with up to eight swaps.

Each piece arrives freshly dry-cleaned and comes with a prepaid Royal Mail label to make returns and exchanges a breeze. Items are available in sizes 8 to 16 and, if you can’t bear to be parted with the style you’ve borrowed, you can purchase pieces with discounts of up to 50%. LK Borrowed is also available to gift, meaning you can treat someone special to a one, two or three month subscription.
So, whether you need a wedding guest outfit or new spring jacket, why not borrow instead of buying this season?
