My Secret to Trendy Travel Outfits

No matter how exciting the thought of getting a new outfit (or outfits) for an upcoming trip can be, after stopping in a few stores or browsing through virtual shelves without finding anything, the experience can quickly turn from fun to stressful. I’ve found myself in this situation before, more recently while looking for a great dress to wear to a wedding. And after what felt like weeks of searching and stuffing my suitcase with a few of the lackluster options that I settled with, I got to the wedding and learned that my friend had enlisted the help of clothing rental service Nuuly, where she picked out six dresses to wear throughout the fun-filled weekend. 

In an extremely kind gesture, she allowed me to borrow one of the dresses, which also subsequently marked when I became an official Nuuly convert. From that day forward, I have continued to use Nuuly, regularly choosing dresses, stylish tops, pants, and more for various special occasions and vacations. This service ensures that my wardrobe consistently appears fresh without the worry of overfilling my New York City apartment’s limited closet space.

The rental service is simple: each month, subscribers can choose up to six different garments from Nuuly’s vast repertoire of clothing brands, which includes Lisa Says Gah, For Love and Lemons, AG Jeans, Anthropologie, and so much more. But, instead of paying for each of the six items like you would at a regular store, Nuuly members only pay $98 per month to refresh their closets. With a subscription, you get free shipping and can keep the items for 30 days so you can wear them as often as you need. Then, you simply return (or you can opt to buy any of the pieces that you really liked) them back to Nuuly in your provided prepaid box. 

With hundreds of brands to choose from, Nuuly has everything from trendy jeans to formal gowns and jackets. Size ranges vary depending on the brand, but most styles range between XS to 3XL. Many of these items go for double or triple what the singular rental price costs, and for that alone, I find it completely the monthly subscription worth it. And if you’re interested in buying more than your six provided items, you can easily add an additional one on for $20 each.

I’ve used this rental service for special events when I didn’t want to spend $200-plus on a dress that I would only wear once. But, I’ve also used it whenever I’ve been on the edge about buying a certain item; it’s a budget-friendly hack for trying before buying. Shopping through Nuuly also makes me privy to special deals; depending on the item, they can be marked down up to 70 percent off. 

In my experience, after choosing my items and placing my order, my package has been delivered in less than two days, and as someone who tends to procrastinate, Nuuly is perfect for last-minute styling. Once you receive your items, many of which have tags on them, feel free to take them off and begin styling. Another added perk: There are no fees if any stains or tears occur during wear because laundry and repair services are already factored into the subscription fee.

And, let’s say that you rented a pretty dress for a vacation and you’re feeling a little jet-lagged once you’re home. Instead of rushing to the post office, after wearing and enjoying your items, there’s no pressure to meet any return deadlines because there’s no penalty; you’ll simply get charged for the monthly subscription again and can send them back whenever you’d like. 

I’m utterly obsessed with everything about Nuuly. Ever since I tried it over the summer, I now use it for vacations, events, and whenever I’m not loving what’s looking back at me in my closet. And with the holidays on the horizon, I’m already planning my Thanksgiving and Christmas outfits. So if you’re looking for a way to switch up your everyday and travel wardrobes, consider giving Nuuly a try.
