How does Style Lend work?

It’s in our human nature to want what’s not ours. Remember college? Living with 5 of your friends – and access to their closets? All throughout undergrad my friends and I would effectively shop each other’s wardrobes before weekends, and the effect was a bit like living in Cher’s closet, just without that cool computer feature.

Adult life tends to spiral us into a much more isolated world, where we live with fewer people, alone or with a partner. Don’t get us a wrong, we welcome this respite from the chaos of our younger years, but miss that access. Luckily, Style Lend works a bit like having your best friend’s closet to browse. And with Style Lend, you can control when you can borrow, what you borrow, and don’t have to worry about cleaning the item.

Sound too good to be true? We promise it’s not. And for affordable rental fees, you can have that excitement of sprucing up your wardrobe with something from a hyper-stylish friend. Because it’s always more fun to play dress up with someone else’s clothing.

Curious about how it works? Read on.

Rent. Rock. Return

Choose your item!
From maxi dresses to Chanel bags, we’ve curated a selection of thousands of designer items from some of NYC’s most stylish women. You’ll have virtual access to the closets of women with enviable style (maybe the Clueless analogy was spot on…). Select your items and add them to a shopping bag just as easily as you do with any other e-commerce.

Browse

How and when?
You can choose to borrow an item for either a week or two weeks, not including shipping days. Whether you borrow something for a one off event or love it so much you want to re-wear it, this time frame is designed with your stylish interests in mind. Perhaps you need to shop for shoes with the dress? A week gives you the luxury of time.

Renting made easy

We repeat, you only pay if it fits.

If it doesnt fit you dont pay

Expect a short delivery time.
Your pieces are delivered within 2-3 days or even within hours if you’re in NYC. Convenience at its finest!

Free Returns

Return your item… FOR FREE.
We provide you with a pre-paid envelope to ship the item back or we will send of our girls to pick up your item if you’re in NYC… all part of making this as easy as walking to your roommate’s room to return something.

Don’t sweat the small stuff.
Prosecco gets spilled and sometimes zippers break. That’s what our $5 insurance is for. And the best part of all: dry cleaning is on us.

Can’t wait, start renting here!

Letter from our CEO

Dear Style Lenders,

First, I want to express my deep gratitude to all of you that have believed and supported us from the start and continue to do so every day. Through your comments on social media, likes, introductions, rentals, and shares with friends, you have all made a contribution to help grow Style Lend into what it is today. I also want to thank our lenders, who have shared their amazing items with our community of renters, who love to experience wearing unique, classic, trendy, and coveted pieces from your closets. Style Lend would truly not exist without you.

Our amazing community allows Style Lend to not just be another e-commerce site that consists of only transactions. Style Lend is meant to feel like your ‘best friend’s closet,’ by allowing renters to obtain new outfits from within their community, as well as receive personal styling advice that they would from a friend. We have stylists on hand to give you advice on how to style items, recommend what is appropriate for specific events, and sometimes even answer personal questions you may have (we’ve heard it all). So definitely take advantage of Dale, our ‘Style Psychologist’ who can help you make the most out of your rental so you can create amazing memories with it.

The Style Lend experience, not only allows renters to obtain items that they may otherwise not have access to (or wanted to spend the money on), but contributes and promotes an overall sustainable lifestyle. Sustainability is something we are proud to be a part of and encourage at Style Lend. It’s the future of fashion (does our planet even have a choice?). Celebrities such as Emma Watson, Leonardo Dicaprio, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Anne Hathaway are all advocates for. Check out the article Anne Hathaway shared to promote sustainability HERE.

So what’s to come next for Style Lend? We’re going to reflect our lifestyle and what we truly believe in, in everything we do. You will hear from the Style Lend team and other Style Lenders on how they live the Style Lend life, from fashion to travel to events.  We will share all of it through Instagram, Facebook, Snapchat and Twitter (stay tuned).

The foundation of the brand, which we are continuing to build upon and express, will also be reflected in our updated look and feel of our website/mobile experience, all of which is a result of your feedback over the last six months.  

Can’t wait to share that with you in July.

As always please email, call, message me with any feedback, questions, concerns.

Stylishly Yours,
Lona & the team.
