 - Fashionista Recessionista: Rented Style


Clever thinking in UK fashion is all about pound-stretching without compromising your style.

Renting instead of committing to a costly purchase means you can experiment with more outfits and have a wow factor wardrobe without draining your bank account or caning your credit card.
 
On average, you can borrow a Prada clutch, Cavalli sleeveles slip dress, and a pendant necklace for 80% less than the cost of actually buying them.

Renting is a great option for special occasion outfits, delivering maximum results for a minimal outlay.

More cash-strapped fashionistas are also using renting as way of creating the impression that you have countless current season designer creations. The wear-return-recycle aspect of fashion hire also makes it a much more eco-friendly way to dress!

Here are some of the online renting opportunities which will help you achieve high glamour on a budget. One word of caution though, insurance conditions can vary widely so before you hire always check what you are covered for.

- Dresses
- Shoes
- Handbags
