Best Kept Fashion Secret You Want To Know About!

Ladies, we’ve all been there. Looking for the perfect outfit to wear to a special event and seeing the likes of Kourtney Kardashian or Jennifer Lawrence in our ideal Saturday night outfit. It’s all perfect inspiration until you see the price tag from Saint Laurent or Dior and so you search the high street for the ultimate homage. But wait! What if you could actually wear the celebrity looks yourself for a fraction of the price?!

Nothing-to-Wear is the first luxury pre-owned rental service ‘with a soul’ as they market themselves. Luxury rental now goes beyond simply looking your best in the latest designer looks, it simultaneously changes the way that we consume fashion. According to Nothing-to-Wear, fast fashion has contributed to the textile industry becoming the second most polluting one, something very few fashionistas are aware of. So it’s time to be more conscious of how we consume and in turn, the direction in which we take our wardrobes.

For evenings where you need to up the elegance, we love this black silk gown from Christian Dior with delicate muslin rufflles. Yours to rent for just £250! Who’d have thought they could wear a Dior gown to an event for £250.

Or to brighten up your evening this Badgely Mischka red strapless number is Bond Girl realness for only £90. Why not add a little sparkle to your life with Prada sequins at £180 rental price. You can dance the night away guilt free in any of these dresses just like Cinderella!

There are day looks, night looks and everything in between on Nothing-to-Wear, and don’t even get us started on accessories! We have died and gone to handbag heaven here, now that we know we can get a white satin mini Lady Dior bag for £225 or vintage Chanel and Chloe bags is a dream. Which leads us on to vintage, and Nothing-to-Wear have the most amazing vintage collection. Think 1980’s Yves Saint Laurent, vintage Dior, Alaïa, Versace and more. It’s a fashionista’s playground here!

This Alaïa dress from 1990 is just £98 and is the perfect opportunity to say, ‘You don’t understand. This is an Alaïa!’ for the Clueless fans out there but will also give you major 90’s supermodel vibes with it’s plunging neckline and signature Alaïa details.

Also a diamond from the 90’s is this Christian Dior floral slip dress which would not have been out of place in Carrie Bradshaw’s closet and will be coming with me on my next sun soaked getaway.

Fashion girls will remember the days of John Galliano at Dior and are sure to want a piece of fashion history even if only for a few days. This powder pink twill redingote is still such a wearable shape and is perfect for a weekend date this Valentine’s Day. As for me, I’m looking forward to reinventing this YSL printed midi dress with ankle boots and a leather jacket – and maybe a vintage bag to go with it?

What’s more for each garment or accessory you rent through Nothing-to-Wear, you have the opportunity to add a few pounds to help support a good cause and Nothing-to-Wear pledge to match every pound you donate. Designer shopping has never made us feel so good!

Access a lifestyle, don’t only possess a dress.

Happy shopping ladies!
