If there’s one thing I do love about the fall season, it’s that I can throw a sweater over nearly anything and leave the house without a jacket. What’s funny about this outfit is that both the turtleneck and the boots come borrowed from my mother. Obviously, they are now mine. While I’ve become prone to donating many of my old pieces from long ago, I don’t the same with hers. She actually told me that I should never be donating her pieces and that if I don’t want them anymore to just bring them back home to her in Seattle. Wearing her pieces feels satisfying for a couple of reasons. It’s breathing new life into things you thought you were done with. It also sparks creativity in being able to mix them with pieces from my own closet, which is clearly the best part.

Since award show season doesn’t exactly hit until early next year, I was concerned that we wouldn’t have too many red carper coverages this month. Instead, we got one that exceeded our expectations with the Fashion Awards this past week!

For a brand that is already considered fast fashion, will a clothing rental service work? It seems like Rent the Runway is the leader in this business model, but I used to think that was because their pieces were high end. Starting out first as a rental for gowns, they have now shifted to regular everyday clothing. If H&M can tackle the same, then it could actually work for them!
How it works: members of the brand’s loyalty program will have access to 50 pieces that they can rent for a period of time. For now, this will only be launched in Sweden for $37/week. After a three-month trial period, the brand will then assess how the program is working. H&M was the staple of my college years and post-college in the business formal working environment. Since then, I haven’t shopped there much except for perusing the sales, but readers, if this were offered in the states, would you try it?
