Rent The Runway Unlimited: Tips For The Curvy Girl

RTRpost2CM.JPG

HOW IT WORKS:

I've been using Rent The Runway's Unlimited program since August 2018 and it's safe to say, I feel like a RTR expert now when it comes to finding styles that will work for me. If you're unfamiliar with the program, you can rent four or more items at a time, swapping them out for new styles whenever you want or purchasing them if you want to keep it. They handle the cleaning so all you have to do is throw the worn items in the reusable pre-paid shipping bag and prepare for your next shipment. You can create favorite folders for different events or moments that you may have coming up such as weddings, events, trips or for work. From casual wear to formal wear, and everything in between - it's a great option to constantly keep your wardrobe fresh without the hefty price tag.

WHAT I LIKE:

I've put together a list of my favorite brands that I have luck with as a size 14, 5”8.5 gal!

Adrianna Papell - Andrew Marc - ASTR - BB Dakota - B Collection by Bobeau - Badgley Mischka - Blank NYC - Cupcakes and Cashmere - Cynthia Rowley - Derek Lam - Diane Von Furstenburg - Donna Morgan - Draper James x Eloquii - Fame and Partners - Figue - Good American - Habitual - Hutch - J Crew - Jenny Yoo - Junarose - Just Female - Kate Spade - Lauren Ralph Lauren - Madewell - Mink Pink - Monique Lhullier - Moon River - Nicholas - Nicole Miller - Rebecca Taylor - Tart Collections - Prabel Gurung - Rachel Pally - Rachel Roy - Sanctuary - Slate & Willow - Soia & Kyo - Tanya Taylor - Tory Burch - Veronica Beard

My favorite things to rent are dresses, jumpsuits, jackets/blazers and tops. However, there are tons more options on the site such as accessories: handbags, jewelry, sunglasses, maternity clothes, kids clothing and so much more. Here are a few of my favorite rentals and other items saved to my favorites, I will be sure to keep adding to this as I continue to wear more things.

Happy #TryOnConfidential Friday, my friends! Last week on my IG Stories, I put up a poll and asked if you wanted to see coats and jackets or sports bras. With close to 2,000 votes, it was nearly a 50/50 split. Since we’re still in the thick of winter, I figured I’d do coats first! But don’t worry, sports bras will be soon!

If we’re being honest, I have WAY too many coats. Living in New York, one must be prepared for all seasons. I understand not everyone will need a winter coat but this list mentions my top 6 must have pieces of outerwear for all seasons. Stay tuned to my stories to see the full break down. Here’s my list of must haves:

1. Polished Wool Coat

2. Functional + Packable Winter Coat

3. The Trench Coat

4. Moto Jackets: Faux Leather + Suede

5. Denim Jackets: Blue + White

6. Blazers

Bonus: Statement Coats

my favorite places to shop coats + jackets:

abercrombie - asos - boden - nordstrom - nordstrom rack - old navy - rent the runway (use CARALYNM100 for $100 off your first two months of Unlimited)

This week on my stories, you voted that you’d rather see fall basics under $50 rather than coats and jackets. I am so glad that I asked because I was preparing to do only outerwear! You all help me so much, I so appreciate all of your feedback. At the end of the day, I want to bring you things that you actually WANT to see so keep the comments coming!

This week, I challenged myself to find 50 items under $50 that are perfect for transitioning through seasons. I ended up finding some of my favorite pieces that I’m wearing (above $50) in under $50 dupes! I’ve also sprinkled in some coats + jackets under $50 in here. I will be showcasing about ten+ of these items on my IG story, so be sure to tune into that! Can’t wait to hear what you find.
