Big news, fashionistas! Rent the Runway has launched Unlimited, a new monthly service that grants you access to unlimited designer looks, for a flat monthly fee. Think Netflix, but for fashion.

Intrigued? Join us for a cocktail party on Wednesday, April 6 at the Rent the Runway store in Georgetown, where you can enjoy cocktails, shop the racks, and learn more about the service. Space is limited, so don’t wait to RSVP to the D.C. event here. (We’ve reopened the RSVP list for a short period of time.) 

We can’t wait to see you in a week, but until then, here are some of our favorite pieces from the new RTR Unlimited Spring collection, below.

My loyalty to Rent the Runway began when I was in my early 20s living in New York. At the time, my job required me to attend several events on a weekly basis, but I couldn’t justify buying a new outfit for every occasion, while paying rent in Manhattan. Rent the Runway was a godsend for everything from work galas to client events.

My friends and I loved the convenience of the service—we’d often get our order delivered to our office and change in the bathroom before our event—and the access it gave us to beautiful designer clothes that we otherwise couldn’t afford.

Now, the Unlimited service grants us even more access to fashion, but for everyday pieces. For someone who spends way too much money on clothes, I can get behind a service that allows me to rent infinite beautiful designer pieces, for a flat rate each month. I found that by adding just three new pieces to my closet, I had more diversity in outfits and I looked forward to getting dressed for work each day. I was able to combine the different pieces into various outfits throughout the week.

It’s no secret, I’m a sucker for a good pencil skirt. I love the tribal, neon print of this Trina Turk piece, which can go from the office to brunch. Just this week, I’ve paired this skirt with a simple pink sweater for the office and a cargo short-sleeved jacket, pictured here, for a sexier weekend look.

This DVF cork clutch was hard to send back. It was the perfect size and easily transitioned from brunch to a wedding later that night. My favorite part was that the tortoise bar along the flap was the perfect grip, as the cork was surprisingly slippery to hold.

It’s no secret I spend a bucketload on clothes—I am a slave to fashion and my bulging closet and empty wallet make that evident.

I’m petite, so I appreciate that Rent the Runway continues to innovate, allowing me to shop my body type and order multiple sizes and second options at a lower price to ensure something fits. They’ve also worked in tall and regular options for some of their floor-length dresses. They clearly heard their customers’ needs and adapted accordingly—I respect a company that does that well!

I’ve definitely used Rent the Runway multiple times for wedding weekends, as you need a different frock for the rehearsal dinner, bridal brunch and wedding—and that’s a lot of moola.

I actually own this Elizabeth & James fit-and-flair open back dress in black, so I knew it would fit well in baby pink! I’m all about blush shades and neutrals this season (see our March Fashion Menu) so I was excited to craft a soft, lady like look for a night out. I also selected an off-white leather moto jacket from Dolce Vita, to switch it from my normal black leather moto jacket. I wore this jacket four days straight—thanks RTR Unlimited!  I paired it with my blush heels and Kendra Scott earrings.

As someone who prefers to invest in handbags and accessories, I was surprised by how much I enjoyed the Unlimited service. It lets me have my options and keep my savings account flush. Win-win.
