    Reviewer in the wrap skirt
    Rent the Runway

    Price: $30 ($148 value; available in sizes XS–XL)

    Promising review: "This is the best skirt! So stylish. Wrap skirt so you can be I between sizes. I paired it with a black shirt. I loved it, so many compliments!" —Nicole

    2. Current/Elliot jeans so you can rock a slightly flared, highwater leg without having to *fully* commit — you might be back in your skinny jeans next year anyway.

    Rent the Runway

    Price: $40 ($248 value; available in sizes 24–32)

    Promising review: "These jeans are more true denim (aka no spandex or stretchy material) so when you first put them on they feel a bit snug but after about a day they wear in beautifully. The classic denim fit is awesome and perfect for any denim lover out there. Plus the high waist lends very well to this kind of fit. After a few hours of wearing them they became seriously comfortable and it helps that they also make my ass look great."—RTR Customer

    3. A pleated faux leather skirt that just might make you cry ~tiers~ of joy when you try it on for the first time. It's just such a fun piece!

    Reviewer in the three-tiered black skirt
    Rent the Runway

    Price: $40+ ($325 value; available in sizes 0–22)

    Promising review: "Rented this for my day of appointments for NYBFW. I got stopped on the streets of NYC 3 times that day from strangers asking where I got my skirt. Fit is true to size and it made me feel so chic. Perfectly pairs with classic pieces in your closet to make the skirt really stand out. Rent this you won't regret it!"—Hailey

    4. An ALC sequin mock-neck crop top to make every day a little bit more of a party. I'm team #sequinsfordaytime.

    Reviewer in the black top
    Rent the Runway

    Price: $60 ($345 value; available in sizes 0–12)

    Promising review: "I instantly felt like the life of the party in this top. Fit great - however it is definitely cropped. I wore with high waisted jeans a couple of times. Loved it. Would rent again."—Diana

    5. A longline black leather jacket with quilted accents you'll *LIVE* in all fall. Seriously, pair this with anything, and you're ready to walk out the door!

    Reviewer in the hip-length jacket
    Rent the Runway

    Price: $205 ($1,195 value; available in sizes XS–4X)

    Promising review: "Its like butter. The leather is soft and for a tall girl with a long waist, the length was perfect. I wore it over a cashmere hoodie for a casual night with girlfriends, then threw it on a fancy dress for a holiday party."—Starla

    6. Or if you already own the perfect black moto jacket, a silver option that'll expand your wardrobe all fall. Just return it in time to rent an awesome winter coat (or two).

    Reviewer in the metallic silver jacket
    Rent the Runway

    Price: $120 ($695 value; available in sizes XS–L)

    Promising review: "Such a GREAT jacket. You will not blend in while wearing this, surprisingly soft hand given the metallic finish. I wore for a presentation I have on stage with my sparkly sneaks. Tons of compliments!" —Rayleen

    7. A statement-sleeve mock neck top for an effortless look that says "Sweatshirt, but make it fashion!"

    Reviewer in the black balloon-sleeve sweatshirt with three white stripes down each sleeve
    Rent the Runway

    Price: $50 ($280 value; available in sizes XS–L)

    Promising review: "Wore this to run some errands and then a little casual day drinking while watching football. Very comfortable heavier weight material. I paired with Lulu lemon athletic skirt. Fit was true to size. Will probably rent again." —Amy

    8. A stunning and simple black midi dress so you can take the puffy sleeve trend out for a spin at your next event.

    Reviewer in the off the shoulder narrow black dress
    Rent the Runway

    Price: $185+ ($1,220 value; available in sizes 0–12)

    Promising review: "This dress is so unique, but still flattering, and work-appropriate. I got so many compliments the day I wore it, including one from a random man on the street who screamed at me "That's a hot dress, DUDE!" He is correct. Rent this. The fabric is very lightweight, no lining, good for summer days."—Molly

    9. A colorblock pleated skirt, because how pretty is this autumnal color scheme? Altho I'm sorry to say the rental does not come with the adorable pupper pictured below.

    Reviewer in the white, tan, and rust skirt
    Rent the Runway

    Price: $70 ($398 value; available in sizes XS–3X)

    Promising review: "This is the best midi skirt I've ever worn. The material was heavy and looked fantastic. The skirt had great movement and was the perfect length. I'll definitely rent this one again."—Jessica

    10. A Proenza Schouler tiger print sweater, because all kinds of animal prints are v on trend this fall, and now you're all set!

    Reviewer in the oversized sweater
    Rent the Runway

    Price: $155 ($895 value; available in sizes XS–L)

    Promising review: "OMG I LOVE THIS! It was so much fun to wear! It is a true crop sweater, so keep that in mind. I am 5'3 and it hit right at the beginning of my hip bone, not too far below my belly button. It looks great with very high waisted stuff. I wore it with a pair of black palazzo pants and also with jeans and yoga pants. It transitions perfectly from casual to going out! The knit is very tight and heavy, and I found the neckline to be a little constricting at first, but then you get used to it. All in all a win!"—Amanda

    11. A cropped, belted cardi for a luxurious, fashion-forward look, but oodles of all-day comfort.

    Rent the Runway

    It's oversized, so you might want to size down!

    Price: $115 ($690 value; available in sizes XS–L)

    Promising review: "Loved this cardigan! It felt like a cool update to the normal cardigan, and I was so pleasantly surprised by HOW soft it was!! I wore a small but probably could've worn an XS too. I styled it similarly to how it's shown onsite, and got so many compliments. Can't wait to rent again!" —Abby

    12. A flowy trench coat for a no-brainer but chic way to top off every outfit. It's the perfect non-boring neutral!

    Reviewer in the plaid tan drape-front coat
    Rent the Runway

    Price: $30 ($168 value; available in sizes XS–L)

    Promising review: "This is such a versatile open, flyaway trench. It's fairly light, so I look forward to wearing it in the office, as well as for outer wear. I will probably hold onto this one for a little while before returning."—MIrabelle

    13. A pair of faux suede leggings for a dose of polished style AND lasting comfort (no more feeling constricted).

    Reviewer in the black leggings
    Rent the Runway

    Price: $30 ($178 value; available in sizes XS–L)

    Promising review: "I loved these so much it was hard to send them back! I will definitely consider buying or renting again. These are just pretty basic suede leggings. They are substantial enough that they don't show any lumps or bumps, they lay flat across the crotch. They were the perfect ankle length for me, and I wore them pulled up high on my hips. They looked great with knee-high boots and equally cute with loafers. Highly recommend!" —Adrian

    14. A dramatic-sleeve top, because you want to add a little something extra to your emphatic hand gestures. This should do the trick.

    Reviewer in the black bell-sleeve top
    Rent the Runway

    Price: $30 ($50 value; available in sizes 14–22)

    Promising review: "I am obsessed with this top! I wore it to work with jeans and pumps, then took the whole outfit straight to drinks after! It's still hanging in my closet and I can't wait to wear it again this week with something new! I may end up purchasing this! The fabric is so comfortable and drapes nicely."—Kelly

    15. A python button-front dress for an incredibly easy way to let the snakeskin trend ~slither in~ to your closet.

    Reviewer in the mini dress
    Rent the Runway

    Price: $30 ($98 value; available in sizes XS–L)

    Promising review: "Loved this!!! The snake skin print is super unique, easy to wear since it's a neutral, and fit great. I love the buttons up the front. Could wear to work, party, or out so it feels really versatile! We had an uncharacteristically cold spring day, so I threw on a black sweater with it and also could have worn knee high boots had it not been raining. Wore to a bridal shower and am tempted to purchase!!"—Melanie

    16. A Minkpink velvet jumpsuit in a pleated material for an incredibly stylish '70s throwback.

    Reviewer in the pleated plunge jumpsuit in brown velvet
    Rent the Runway

    Price: $30+ ($119 value; available in sizes XS–L)

    Promising review: "Loved this jumpsuit! It was so comfortable and fun to wear! The color is beautiful, it was perfect for a holiday event. It had a deep V in the front and back so I was nervous about what bra to wear, but the material was thick enough and fitted to my body so I didn't wear a bra at all! Highly recommend."—RTR Customer

    17. A classic Prince of Wales check blazer to make getting dressed for the office so much easier on the reg. This'll instantly upgrade those same black pants you wear three times away. And you know Veronica Beard's jackets are ::chef's kiss::

    Reviewer in the blazer
    Rent the Runway

    Price: $120 ($695 value; available in sizes 0–22)

    Promising review: "Awesome Blazer! Lots of compliments at work, thought about buying it until I saw how expensive it is haha but will definitely rent again!"—Keri

    18. A bright pink Milly pullover to cheer up the 35th grey day in a row come November. Sigh.

    Reviewer in the hot pink cropped sweater
    Rent the Runway

    Price: $50 ($295 value; available in sizes XS–L)

    Promising review: "This sweater is way brighter than I expected. It's super soft and full of positive energy. It's a little shorter than I expected, more like a cropped sweater."—Candice

    19. A Rachel Zoe plaid miniskirt you might just want to propose to. And by propose to, I mean buy for keeps once you're done renting it!

    Reviewer getting proposed to in the grey, black, and white plaid miniiskirt
    Rent the Runway

    Price: $50 ($295 value; available in sizes 0–12)

    Promising review: "What a great and versatile skirt. I loved wearing this to work. I felt sexy but sophisticated. Not too short not too long. Easy to style and easy to wear. Also it was warm! Perfect for winter."—Lauren

    20. A sheer lace blouse for the perfect amount of gothic romance vibes on your next special occasion — or just for a night out with the girls.

    Reviewer in the tiered top
    Rent the Runway

    Reviewers note to order one size up!

    Price: $30 ($180 value; available in sizes XS–XL)

    Promising review: "I wore this when I hosted Christmas dinner and the compliments kept coming. It's so feminine yet edgy. I'd rent this again for sure. Important note; this runs a tad small so size up for your backup. Either way, any renter would be quite happy with this selection."—Mura

    21. And a rainbow sparkly blazer dress so you can stand out in the sea of black formalwear.

    Rent the Runway

    Price: $30 ($155 value; available in sizes XS–L)

    Promising review: "My favorite RTR of all time!! It was hard to send this one back. Not only did I feel like a million bucks, but others took notice as well -- I got compliments all night! It's a unique show stopper, perfect for NYE or other formal occasions. I love that this dress wraps and ties at the waist, which helps define your body shape while still preserving the chic oversized look. It was comfy! It is fairly low cut, which did require some adjusting throughout the night, but overall I had no issues. The sizing listed on RTR does seem to be slightly off -- I referenced the sizing info from the brand's website (Raga) before renting, which I recommend."—RTR Customer
