clothesGot too many clothes in your closet? Don’t see the sense in buying something you’ll only wear once?

Renting a tux is nothing new, but now ladies can save money on formal wear too, with services like Rent the Runway or Lending Luxury, which allow users to rent designer-brand clothes for a fraction of their retail price. And brides looking for bargains can even rent a wedding gown and bridesmaid dresses at Rent the Dress.
