Did you know:
- The average woman only wears 20% of what she owns in her closet and the rest ends up in a landfill
- Most women add 68 new pieces to their closet each year (that’s about 6 new pieces per month!)
At dresst™, we believe in a better solution: clothing rental. Renting has a lot of benefits:
- It gives you the opportunity to try something you wouldn’t normally reach for.
- Renting gives you the freedom to buy less and choose better.
- You can minimize your fashion environmental footprint.
- Clothing rental saves you time, so the days of “I have nothing to wear” become a thing of the past.
Instead of accumulating your closet with the clothes you don’t wear, start investing in the smart essentials – those pieces that never lose their appeal and work all-year-round.
Introducing The Essential 5 - The quality, flattering, and versatile must-haves. We’ll also include picks from our closet so you can mix and match however you want.
1. A Longline Blazer
Whether you go for classic black, a vibrant pink, or heritage-inspired checks, a longline blazer will see you through every season. Throw it on for a smart casual work look during the day, then pair with jeans or smart leggings and heels come evening.
2. A White Shirt
As basic as this piece is, a white shirt is always on the list of top must-have items. When it comes to a white shirt, the fit is everything. Look for a crisp, loose-fit white shirt that flatters and skims your figure, without bulging at the buttons. It works wonder when teamed with denim jeans and a blazer. It boldens your outfit when worn with a leather skirt and a pair of black heels. This is one hero piece that’ll work for both work and play.
3. A Comfy Sweater
A gift that keeps on giving is a comfy sweater. There are tons of options to choose from when talking about a comfy sweater. For warmer days, a V-neck or crewneck is your good friend and can be easily worn with many other pieces in your wardrobe.
4. A Midi Dress
A modern classic, the midi dress is a hardworking garment in all seasons. There are a few ways to get the best out of your midis: Wear it over your favourite pair of skinny jeans for a chic street style in chillier weather, layer it under a blazer for a business dinner, or wear it under a lightweight knit top for a flattering weekend getaway outfit. Shirt dress styles are always in style, while wrap dresses can be worn open for a kimono effect.
5. A Pair Of Ankle Boots
A good pair of ankle boots is a must. We’d suggest investing in a mid-height heel so that you can dress them up or down. Perfect for wearing with dresses, leggings, jeans, or skirts, classic black will always be a staple, though red, metallics or leopard print are a timeless way to jazz up otherwise plain outfits.
