Wearhop is a brand new concept in kid’s fashion. At wearhop.com, parents can save money by renting their kids’ clothes for a season, versus buying them. For example, a Janie & Jack dress that retails for $69 can be rented new for 40% off or ‘like new’ for 64% off. Parents can save even more for special occasion items which can be rented for as little as 1 month. Wearhop carries sizes 12 months to 4T.
There are certainly a lot of ways to save money on kid’s clothes (can I say, hand-me-down??), but what sets Wearhop apart from others is that they hand-pick only the best styles for their collection. They strive to offer a great selection from top brands like Crewcuts, Mini Boden, Janie & Jack, Hanna Andersson, Lilly Pulitzer, Tea Collection and more! They’re also unique in offering the ability to send the clothes back, which is perfect for one-time events such as family pictures, Easter celebrations, weddings and so much more!
I rented the Ralph Lauren Big Pony Sweatshirt in Blue. I decided to rent it for 6 months because I know the weather will still be a bit chilly in March. I think we’ll be able to use the sweatshirt a lot here especially because it looks very easy to style with layers!
The item arrived at our doorstep quickly and it looked just as it’s presented on the Wearhop website. This is very important for me because some photos on the internet can be a bit deceiving. Wearhop’s photos are actually very descriptive of the one I received.
My husband was pleasantly surprised when he saw the sweatshirt in the closet. He said he really likes the style; and since he’s my son’s official stylist, that’s great news to me! And when I told him it’s just a rental and that we’ll send it back after 6 months, he said it’s a really good idea because the clothes won’t just go to waste after our little one outgrows it.
All in all, I think Wearhop’s concept is very unique and very beneficial to renters and to the environment as well.
BUY/RENT! Check out all of Wearhop’s products at Wearhop.com! The clothes can be rented for 1 to 6 months and can also be purchased at the end of the rental period (just pay the difference between purchase price and the rental price that you’ve already paid). When your child is done with the clothes, just send them back. This makes the concept environmentally conscious given that the average American throws out more than 50 pounds of clothing per year.
