How My Capsule-Wardrobe-Loving Mama Spices Up Her Closet Every Month: NUULY

I spent most of March and April in Nashville with my parents. I had a blast shopping at all the designer boutiques, eating fabulous food…and …did I mention a whole lotta shopping?! During my extended stay in Nashville, my mom received two packages from her NUULY clothing rental subscription and her excitement about it totally inspired me to share her experience.

While my mom and I are so alike in many ways, we couldn’t be more opposite when it comes to fashion. She is a minimalist with a gorgeous capsule wardrobe. I on the other hand…could wear a different outfit from my closet every single day for a year and would still have options leftover.

NUULY: There’s Much To Love About This Clothing Rental Service

Since my mom is a fashion minimalist by nature, she said “Nuuly is my favorite way to spice up my wardrobe and add unique pieces to the forever staples in my closet.”

We love that NUULY offers a wide range of new & gently-used pieces each month, plus it's a size-inclusive experience (sizes XXS-3X) featuring amazing brands (think: AGOLDE, Anthropologie, Free People).

How NUULY’s Clothing Rental Membership Works

For $80 per month, NUULY Rent lets you “explore fashion in ways that are gentler on the planet and on your wallet.” The monthly membership is simple and streamlined. Here’s how it works:

  1. Download the NUULY app.
  2. Subscribe and select six pieces from the wide array of selections and styles that NUULY offers. Think great jeans, the perfect dress for date night, or a business casual look for your next office meeting.
  3. Your clothing rental arrives with fast, free 2-day shipping.
  4. Enjoy wearing your pieces for 30 days
  5. When it’s time to return: If there was a piece or two that you loved and want to add to your wardrobe permanently, you can select “purchase” in your profile and buy the pieces at a reduced price. Add all the rest of your pieces back into the reusable shipping bag and send it on its way back to NUULY.
  6. Once your clothing is back on its way to NUULY, simply start the process all over and your next rental will be on its way to you in no time!

Not only do we love that NUULY is a size-inclusive experience that offers sizes ranging from XXS-3X, they also feature so many amazing brands that my mom wouldn’t have otherwise known about (think: AYR, Alice McCall, AGOLDE, Anthropologie and Free People).

The customizable search features within NUULY’s app are one of my mom’s absolute favorite functions. She says “I love that if I want a three-quarter-length sleeve sweater, in the color lavender, I can easily search and find what I am looking for.”

In addition to the ease of NUULY’s app, they also curate wardrobe inspo based on an event or the time of the year, which makes for a fun and aesthetically appealing experience.


The NUULY Pieces My Mom Is Adding To Her Minimalist Wardrobe

NUULY’s monthly membership is amazing because if you fall in love with specific pieces from the styles you received, you can purchase them at a discounted price. It’s a total win-win situation!

Porridge Side-Tie Sweatshirt

The Side-Tye Sweatshirt by Porridge is a take on a button-up shirt & layered sweater combo. It's made of lightweight material & we're wearing it with white pants.

When I think of my mom’s iconic style, I immediately think of her wearing a sweater layered over a pinstripe button-up where the collar and bottom of the top peak beneath the sweater. So when I watched her light up as she tried this different take on a layered sweater / button-up combo, I knew this piece would be added to her minimalist wardrobe. The sweater is the perfect lightweight material and a great addition to her wardrobe as we head into spring.

This was my favorite piece from my mom’s monthly subscription, and while she liked it too, it isn’t a keeper. However, she will be wearing it to an upcoming baby shower! The floral pattern is beautiful and it’s so well-designed.

  1. Thanks to you and your mom for the great review! Would you say there are any “leftover” scents on the clothes that she ordered?

    • Hi Cindy, no she doesn’t, everything is professionally laundered before it’s sent onto the next customer, and half the pieces she receives are brand new as well.
