Busy schedules leave little room for things like shopping for work wear or upcoming special occasion. It's why on-demand fashion services are so popular.
A closet full of designer clothes could easily cost tens of thousands of dollars, but sharing the cost can make it affordable.
"Where it may be hard to stomach throwing down $2,500 or $4,000 for a statement jacket or fur or gown, perhaps you would be less intimidated to try that at 10 to 20 percent of the retail price for a fun occasion," said Trisha Gregory, the co-founder ofArmarium.
Gregory's app launched this summer. It lets users pick designer threads like Jimmy Choo, Ferragamo and Cavalli, chat with a stylist and get fashions shipped them. Users get to keep the clothes for 4 days.
It's a spinoff of Rent-the-Runway, described as Netflix for fashion. Consumers pay $139 for unlimited outfits. Rent the Runway sends three ensembles at a time that you can swap out as often as you want.
Other services, like Stitch Fix, and MM La Fleur, send a box of hand-picked clothing and accessories based on a user's personal style. You can buy and keep what you like and send back what you don't.
