Disposable Couture

Fleeting nature of fashion has consumers looking for less costly alternatives

Implications - Fashion is fickle; the fact that it is constantly changing means that those who want to look stylish and trendy must invest in new apparel and accessories each season. However, services and alternatives that allow style-savvy consumers to enjoy fashion without having to commit large amounts of cash are on the rise. Ranging from rentable couture and apparel-swapping sites to monthly clothing subscriptions, these alternatives provide budget fashionistas with a way to look on-trend and consistently obtain new outfits without having to break the bank.
