Rent the Runway Lets You Rent an Ugly Holiday Sweater for Christmas

Rather than buying yourself an ugly holiday sweater that you'll probably only wear once during the Christmas season, Rent the Runway now offers sweater rentals for $15, comparable to retail prices of about $50.

The assortment on Rent the Runway includes tacky vests, patchwork sweaters and jumpers with stuffed teddy bears sewn on—once your order is placed, you may as well consider yourself the winner of an ugly Christmas sweater contest. Plus, what's even better is that you don't have to store the items in your closet throughout the rest of the year, so that you have space for more fashion-forward items during the times that everything isn't decked out in colorful red and green lights.
