For a month, I experienced what it was like to have a designer wardrobe without the expensive price tag. Plus, with sustainable fashion in vogue, I review how Style Theory is a convenient alternative to online shopping for a fraction of the cost and guilt! And read to the end and find out how you too can rent a designer wardrobe with Style Theory’s one-month free trial!
I reviewed renting everyday wear and work outfits and also some sexy date night dresses. It was fun keeping up with current trends and trying new designer styles each week, without causing a closet overload. Here’s what I discovered renting designer clothes in Singapore from Style Theory; it might make you keen to spruce up your wardrobe too.
My review of Style Theory
I’ve always been a hesitant online shopper, so I was a little nervous reviewing Style Theory. My greatest worries were around the fit on my body shape and when to size up or down. However, Style Theory has thought through these common concerns with its clothing rental service in Singapore.
As part of your profile setup, you add approximate body measurements such as your height, hips and bust. Then, when you view each item of clothing on the app, the garments’ specific measurements are compared to your own. No need to question generic size charts. I’ve managed to find the perfect fit every time I rented dresses and clothing in Singapore with Style Theory.
The app also includes fabric descriptions like levels of stretch, sheer and general fit. And, if you’re like me and prefer to see how the clothes look when they’re being worn, the review section encourages photo uploads. So you can see the clothing on others first. Besides, you can wear a piece once, send it back and move on to a new outfit without feeling guilt about making sustainable fashion choices.
I found browsing on the app for designer clothing was easy using the categorisations based on popular dress codes and styles. You can rent a dress or outfit in Singapore for staycations, work and everyday wear.
My first fashion subscription box arrived on schedule in two days, and a week later I instantly swapped the box. A huge plus is not having to worry about washing any of the clothes you rent.

The pros and cons of renting dresses and clothes
The sustainable fashion factor and convenience of delivery, pickup and garment care are certainly fantastic perks renting designer clothes in Singapore. The only difficulty I experienced while reviewing Style Theory was the availability of some clothes I wanted to rent.
Not every designer piece comes in all sizes, and not everything is available. However, with such an extensive selection of over 40,000 styles in XXS to XL, it was easy to find a replacement piece.
