If you hoard clothes you’ve never worn, if you hate shopping and like to keep it simple, or if you’re a fashion diva who refuses to repeat an outfit – we’ve rounded up some of Mumbai’s most exciting clothes rental portals to make your next night out one to remember.

The Clothing Rental

The Clothing Rental has been a well-kept secret among the professionals from the entertainment industry since 2005. Starting at INR 999,they have premium designer gowns {Valentino, Hugo Boss}, tuxedos for men, accessories and handbags too.

A separate section called ‘Social Media Looks’ lets you take a look right off their social media handle. With two stores {in Bandra and Versova}, one can just walk in and walk out with the outfit needed for a high-end cocktail. While the Bandra store has Western outfits, ethnic wear needs are taken care of by the Versova outlet. There’s always their website if you’re more of an online shopper.

Swishlist

With INR 500 off on the first order, Swishlist boasts of their delivery service which makes sure that the outfit reaches you two days prior to D-Day {the day you want to don the outfit}. It’s good for those who like to get comfortable in the chosen outfits before sashaying around in it.

One can return the garment on the next day. They charge a security deposit equivalent to 50 per cent {or more} of the rental fee, depending on the outfit. With clothing items starting at INR 500, we love the affordability and the user-friendly website.

Flyrobe

With over 1,000 looks in its kitty, one can rent a garment within three hours or more, for a time period of three days on Flyrobe. The rentals for western apparels start at INR 179. The great thing here is that one need not pay a security deposit for high-street brand, though a 20 per cent deposit on designer pieces is applicable.

We love their holiday package – one needs to pay INR 1,999 and order any four western wear outfits from their entire collection and keep them for 10 days. Bye tedious holiday shopping, hello renting.

Delhi-based Wrapd has an elaborate collection of good-looking ethnic wear and gowns. Although Delhi-based, they deliver to Mumbai and other cities as well. From lehengas to anarkalis for women to Nehru jackets and coats for men, they start renting out at INR 300. They also allow people to put their wardrobes on rent so if you’ve got a dress which you’ve only worn once, you now know where to send it.

They also allow one to choose a back up outfit in case you change your mind. Starting at INR 499, we’re bookmarking this for the month-end woes.
