To inspire you to elevate your style, I’m thrilled to announce the launch of Fashion Forward! I’ve created this new women’s clothing rental subscription service to make it easy and affordable to update your outfits without spending a fortune on new apparel.
With a background as a style expert and fashion magazine writer – I’ve always enjoyed discovering chic brands, educating people on ways to style different pieces and new trends, and teaching women how to make wise investments in their wardrobes. For those reasons, and more, I’m so excited to introduce you to FashionForwardBox.com.
Whether you love to change up your outfits, try new style trends, or just dress for success, FashionForwardBox.com is designed to offer you unlimited access to fashion on rotation each month. For a flat monthly fee of just $50, you get access to limitless looks from popular brands (like Ann Taylor, ASTR The Label, Express, French Connection, Vince Camuto, and more!). But, that’s not all… because I want to help you look and feel your best, FashionForwardBox.com is giving you a 30-day free trial subscription (which you can cancel at any time).
And, because you know I love giveaways, one lucky winner will receive a 3-month membership subscription!

What is Fashion Forward?
Fashion Forward is a subscription rental service that gives you access to hundreds of looks for one flat fee of $50. It works on a set of 2. Subscriptions include unlimited shipping & exchanges for a flat monthly fee. Currently, we ship to any street address in the United States and in Puerto Rico.

How Much Does it Cost?
Fashion Forward offers a two-garment plan for a monthly fee of only $50, plus applicable taxes. Exchange as many times as you want with free shipping both ways. You’ll receive a prepaid return envelope in every box. It’s that simple! Usually, members will receive on average 4-5 boxes per month, although you can switch out items more often if you want. That means, for a flat fee of just $50 per month – your cost to rent each item is appx. $5-6 per piece!
How Do I Get Started?
After signing up for a free trial subscription on FashionForwardBox.com, browse through the collections and add styles you wish to try to your virtual Closet. Once you’ve met your Closet minimum of 6 garments, your first box will automatically start processing. Boxes ship out via USPS Priority Mail and delivery typically takes 1-3 business days, and we also offer expedited service (at an additional charge of only $5 + tax).
What Types of Apparel Does Fashion Forward Carry?
Virtually everything! From everyday essentials (such as tops, sweaters, blouses, jackets, pants, skirts, jumpsuits, and dresses) to special occasion apparel (including cocktail dresses, holiday dresses, formal gowns, and party dresses), and even maternity clothing, we offer a variety of pieces to suit your lifestyle and needs. Our subscription service also strives to be size-inclusive, meaning we carry apparel ranging from XS to 4x. So you can easily find pieces that will fit and flatter your silhouette. Whether you’re looking to elevate your everyday looks (for work, weekends, and more), or you want to look your best for special celebrations (such as weddings, events, parties, and more), we’ve got you covered!
Please note that each brand offers a different range of sizes, so check our site for more details.

What is Closeting?
After you’ve used your email address to register for Fashion Forward Box, you can start creating your virtual Closet. Begin by logging in to your registered account and clicking on the hanger icon in the upper right-hand corner of the page. You’ll be directed to your Closet page where you can view the following: The At-Home section, the On-the-Rack section, and the On-Hold section. You can add as many clothes to your virtual Closet as you want. A full Closet leads to faster shipping turnarounds.
How To Add Items To My Virtual Closet?
You can start Closeting items by browsing the site and viewing everything Fashion Forward Box has to offer. Check out New Arrivals for fresh styles each week and take a look at our curated Collections. To Closet an item, click on it to view the product page. Select your item size and click Add To Closet. This item will now appear in your On-the-Rack section. To start receiving boxes, make sure you’ve reached your Closet minimum of 6 items—a full Closet leads to faster shipping.
What are Closet Minimums?
You need a minimum of 6 items in your virtual Closet before your Fashion Forward Box package can be shipped. Please keep in mind that this number is just the minimum and that we suggest maintaining 20 or more items in the On-the-Rack section of your Closet for the smoothest experience. Add as many clothes to your virtual Closet as you want—it never gets full!
Can I Keep the Items I Receive?
Absolutely! As part of your Fashion Forward membership, you get exclusive discounts on the items you rent. That means, if you love a particular piece, instead of returning it, you can buy it at a members-only discount (usually 50-85% off the retail price). So, it’s a budget-friendly way to build your wardrobe without spending a fortune on apparel.
How Often Can I Switch Out Items?
As often as you’d like! Whenever you are ready to send items back, simply go to your Closet and click Return Item to Return Notify and let us know you are sending your items back. As long as you have a minimum of 6 garments in your Closet and your account is in good standing, this action will trigger your next shipment.
How is Cleaning Handled?
Since you’ll never have to wash or dry clean the pieces (as we take care of that at no additional charge), cleanliness is of the utmost importance to us. Our facility has an extensive cleaning process and garment standards that must be met before a garment goes out to another customer. Our best-in-class cleaning process includes wet cleaning and dry cleaning to ensure all garments are thoroughly sanitized. Once cleaned, all garments are processed through a high-heat steam tunnel that reaches a minimum of 240°F. This exceeds the Center for Disease Control (CDC) guidelines of 167°F as the stated temperature sufficient to kill flu viruses. After each garment is cleaned thoroughly, it is inspected three times in our state-of-the-art laundry facility before being shipped out. We also pack each box by hand, so the clothing that reaches you will be in Fashion Forward Box-approved condition.
Can I Give a Subscription Gift?
Yes! Whether you’re shopping for birthday or holiday gifts, Fashion Forward Box is a great gift idea. You can easily send someone a 1-month, 2-month, or 3-month subscription gift. To buy a gift, simply visit www.fashionforwardbox.com/pages/give-a-gift, choose the gift option that you’d like for your recipient, we’ll email them a redemption code (so they can set up their account), and then they can easily activate their membership to start enjoying endless new styles on demand. It’s that easy! Not only is this a fun way for your family and friends to elevate their style, but it’s also a budget-friendly way to shop for gifts. Plus, we offer discounts for extended memberships. So, if you purchase a 1-month membership gift it’s $50, a 2-month membership is just $90 (you save $10), and a 3-month membership is only $120 (which is a $30 savings). So, in essence – it’s the gift that keeps on giving!
Gift memberships are not refundable, transferable, exchangeable, or redeemable for cash or other similar value. You must schedule your gift delivery for a date that is within 90 days of your gift purchase. Gift memberships do not expire, and there is no activation fee. The gift recipient will be required to provide a valid credit/debit card to activate their membership. Unless the gift recipient cancels, their subscription will automatically renew at the end of their gift period.
