3 Easy Fashion Risks to Take at Any Age

If you find yourself choosing the same black top and trousers every day (rings a bell, doesn’t it?) it’s time to switch things up. As you get older, it can feel increasingly challenging to change your style. Every woman over 40 fears looking like she’s trying too hard or that she’s trying to look 25. Taking fashion risks can be scary, but if you step outside your comfort zone we promise it will pay off.

Clothing rental is the easiest— and most affordable— way to experiment with your style. It’s commitment free, hassle free, and more sustainable than fast fashion’s trendy alternatives. Take a small risk and rent something you wouldn’t dare buy! With our unlimited exchanges and team of professional stylists ready to help, what’ve you got to lose?! Yes, we are saying exactly what you fear most — to try bright colors, mixed patterns, or maybe a new silhouette. While you’re at it, why not give jumpsuits or a bright yellow dress a shot? The feeling of trying something new and loving it is unbeatable. 

Here are 3 easy fashion risks you can (and should) take at any age.



Jumpsuits are taking the fashion world by storm. Find a jumpsuit in fashion weeks, corporate offices, galas, and on every boss lady in between. Jumpsuits are great because unlike picking out an outfit head to toe, it requires no fuss. Put on a jumpsuit and voila — your pants and top are all figured out for you. The jumpsuit trend is a hit, as long as you find a fit you’re comfortable in.

Animal Print

Now, this risk may seem outdated or even unoriginal, but animal print is a trend that comes back year after year, and this year it’s one of fashion’s top trends. Depending on your personal style, animal print can be worn as bold or as understated as you choose. Stay on the safe side by adding a leopard tee to your usual jeans-and-tee routine, or go bolder with a leopard print dress. Meow! Whatever your style, animal print is a fun addition to any outfit.

Bright Colors

If you’re intimidated by the recent neon trend, you’re certainly not alone. Bright colors can sometimes seem impossible to incorporate into your wardrobe. A neon tee shirt with your favorite jeans or even a bright skirt with a basic black blazer can still sound daunting. But, done right, adding bold colors to your wardrobe will be your favorite risk to date. A great starting point to add bright colors into your look is a bright sweater tucked into your favorite pair of trousers, or even a colorful pencil skirt. Once you get comfortable with colors, try a bright colored dress or statement pants. If you’re feeling really adventurous, try a monochrome look in your favorite hue. Bright colors are perfect to incorporate to any boss lady’s work outfit rotation. Trust us, this is a risk you’re guaranteed to love.
