In the wonderful world of renting, commitment is passé, closet space is no concern and limits are just not a thing. In this world, you have the freedom to go for it without entertaining the usual fun-killing questions that come with ‘to buy or not to buy’… ”Is it practical?” “Will I wear it again?” “Does it go with anything else I own?” “What if it doesn’t fit after Whole30?!?!”
With such buyer’s remorse out of the picture, a fashion fog lifts. Suddenly, those once-dangerous styles are safe and a host of new trends are fair game.
Among these trends is the personality top – the rule-bending, statement-making style that’s perfect for renting. Each with their unique flare, personality tops can convey your mood in a way more “practical” looks cannot. The self-expression possibilities are endless. It’s like the adult version of playing dress up.
Whether you’re getting dressed for work or play, we suggest giving this trend a try. Below, some inspiration.
