The Rental Edit

Want to do your bit for the planet? Renting clothes gives you the chance to sample the designer brands you love for a fraction of the price – which explains why the number of online rental platforms is booming. Here, we’ve rounded up the best of what’s available right now…

The Brand 

If you didn’t manage to get your hands on anything from H&M’s collab with The Vampire’s Wife, there are still plenty of styles from the brand’s main line available to rent from sites including Rotaro and Hurr Collective. With vintage inspired details like exaggerated shoulders and pie crust collars, their dresses are charming yet wearable. If your social calendar’s looking a little empty, dress them down with trainers or ballet flats instead.   

The Coat 

Teddy coats are everywhere this season, and faux-shearling specialist Stand Studio is the outerwear brand of the moment. Want to try out the trend before committing? Opt for this hooded coat – it’s cosy, stylish and will elevate your winter wardrobe instantly.  


The Heels 

There are few shoe brands more iconic than Manolo Blahnik, with the classic ‘Hangisi’ having reached cult status in recent years. From burgundy velvet to statement yellow, there are plenty available to rent in a variety of colours – the perfect way to elevate your evening look.


The Boots 

Prada’s sellout Monolith boots are like gold dust, and still an influencer favourite for a second season running. Save yourself time scouring through websites for restock notifications and rent them on ByRotation instead.

The Blouse 

If a bit of joy is what your wardrobe needs, this Naya Rea blouse will deliver. With its exaggerated sleeves and ruffled detail, it’ll look chic tucked into jeans with a chunky cardi.

The Bag 

The SL fashion team has coveted Gucci’s 1955 Horsebit bag for a while now – from its practical satchel style to its quintessential equestrian detail, it ticks every box. If the bag’s almost £2,000 price tag puts you off, you can rent it (plus other must-have handbags) from Cocoon Club for as little as £49 per month.

If you like to look polished but feel cosy at this time of year, it doesn’t get much better than Nanushka’s Canaan dress. Pair it with knee high boots and a long coat for a cool off-duty look.

The Jacket 

With pretty embellishment at the shoulders, Mother Of Pearl’s jacket puts a contemporary spin on a classic biker style. Layer it over a midi dress, or a simple top and jeans, to elevate your outfit.
