You can officially match Kate Middleton’s preppy style! If owning a piece of clothing from her closet has always been a dream of yours, you can now make it a reality as one of her favorite clothing brands has launched a clothing rental platform.
The Duchess of Cambridge has a variety of go-to fashion brands for dresses, denim, and tops, but LK Bennett has always been a standout for her. After Kate was named “best fashion influencer”, it’s hard not to want to own everything in her wardrobe. Now, we can at least wear the same styles the Duchess keeps in her closet.
On Tuesday, LK Bennett unveiled its latest fashion-for-hire concept, LK Borrowed, which will allow “fashionistas” unlimited access to its current style for a monthly flat rate. That includes some of the best summer dresses and slimming jeans we’ve spotted Kate Middleton wearing.
Rather than splurge on one piece of the luxury clothing, fans of the brand and Kate’s fashion picks can spend £79 a month. From there, you can choose however many pieces you want and have them delivered straight to your door. You can rent two pieces of clothing at a time with UK sizes 8-16 available—delivery is also free!
You’ll also have the option to swap out and exchange pieces for free, then once you’re finished wearing the clothing just send it back (LK Bennett will handle the dry cleaning). If you don’t want to let go of a particular piece though, the brand will allow you to purchase it for half off the original price.
Typically, the luxury clothing brand’s pieces start at around £225 if you were to buy it off the rack. This program aims to provide shoppers with more access to the brand’s clothing though.
If you’re someone who can’t stand long delivery waits too, then the platform is also offering a “Dart” service for an additional £9. That means you’ll be able to further customize your next shipment and get a faster processing time, so you can step out in your new outfits sooner.
LK Borrowed is currently only available for delivery in mainland UK, but if successful, we may see it expand to other locations in the future.
