The apparel industry has exploded with startups trying to emulate Netflix’s business model. Only instead of sending you DVDs that you return at your leisure, you get a box or bag full of clothing, apparel, jewelry, beauty products, or combinations thereof — some of them for keeps and others you send back for new duds.
Like other types of subscription commerce, these offerings have a very specific appeal: people who don’t have time to shop yet want a regular supply of new duds. In most cases, you’re essentially renting these items with the option to purchase the ones you like (for more money).
This model might not jibe with everyone’s budgets, especially for people accustomed to discounts. Additionally, if you have very specialized tastes, you might not find any of the subscriptions to your liking. However, there’s enough selection available that you might find something that works for you if you shop around.
