Everyone loves having designer clothes in their wardrobe. They feel great and they make you look gorgeous.
And while some of us dedicate a part of our income specifically to buy the latest designer trend, be it a bag or a one of a kind dress, the problem still stands: prices are exorbitantly high.
But, what if I told you that designer clothes can be rented out?
Yep, you heard that right! This trend has been picked up both in the US and in parts of Europe.
However, we’ve never heard of anything like it being offered locally as of yet. And the thing is, the benefits are at scale, not just for your wallet, but also for the environment.
And if you need a bit more convincing as to why we need this system in Malta, maybe these 5 reasons will convince you to get on the renting clothes bandwagon.
One of a kind outfits
How annoying is it when you arrive somewhere only to find that there’s someone wearing the exact same outfit, or at least part of it, as you?
This has happened to many of us multiple times, and the ‘Iii mela you’re twinning?’ comments only add insult to injury.
But if renting out different outfits was an option, the likelihood you’ll find someone wearing the same outfit is pretty low.
Your wardrobe will not burst at the seems
When you’ve got so many clothes that you have no option but to turn the chair and parts of your floor into a DIY wardrobe, you know you’ve got a problem.
And throwing clothes away is such a shame to be honest.
Renting out designer clothes would give you more wardrobe space and not having to guilt trip yourself every time you got the urge to throw some clothes away sounds nice doesn’t it?
Not to mention looking absolutely fab all the time.
Always wearing something new
Let’s be honest, the feeling you get when you’re strutting down some street in a new outfit is one of the best ones out there.
It boosts your confidence and makes you feel like you’re the bomb.
Now imagine feeling like that every other day.
Your bank account will thank you
Now this is where the real #valueformoney comes in.
Us Maltese people love a good bargain. And if the video clip of an army of Maltese people queuing in front of LIDL for their bargained price BBQ isn’t testament of that, I don’t know what is.
Renting out designer clothes will obviously come at a much cheaper price than actually buying it, which means that the cash flow in your bank account can be used for more useful investments.
Help save the environment
Large amounts of textiles are being produced every year and not all of them are bought or used, meaning that they are thrown away.
Renting out clothes will definitely impress Mother nature.
