Rent the Runway: Love, Wear, Return

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

As an added incentive, RTR is offering $25 off the first rental for the first 1,000 new members. Use the promo code: MK251000YHUI. Go ahead, give it a whirl.

Here's how it works: 1) LOVE: Browse through dresses from A-list designers like Herve Leger, Badgley Mischka, Alice+Olivia, Christian Siriano, Robert Rodriguez and more to select a dress you love. Need help? RTR has a team of fashion stylists available for consultation via phone or email. 2) WEAR: Schedule a delivery date and the dress will appear on your doorstep with a back-up size (just in case!). If you're in NYC, they'll deliver same-day. 3) RETURN: After you’re done, pop your dress in their handy prepaid packaging and drop it in the nearest mailbox.

Here's the problem: You’ve got a closet full of clothes and nothing to wear. Here's the solution: Rent something. Rent the Runway is the kind of beautifully simple idea we wish we thought of ourselves.
