The Best Retail Subscriptions for Female Leaders

Have you ever thought about how much money you spend on clothes? On top of the cost, have you fallen into the, “I wore this last week,” committee? I recently discovered subscriptions for your closet, and let me tell you… LIFE CHANGING. There are so many options out there, so I will list my top 5 here and explain the differences, the pros, and the cons.

  • More than 3 swaps/ month becomes challenging.

There are a lot of great subscription companies to choose from. Each company has its pros and cons. I would recommend browsing the sites for your most important guidelines. If you want to have a lot of options, you may want to select a company that provides unlimited swaps. If you have a budget in mind, you may want to stick with the companies that offer more for your money.
