Have you heard? Fast fashion is out; renting clothing is in. (In the PureWow office anyway.) We're still obsessed with Nuuly, Free People, Anthropologie and Urban Outfitters's monthly subscription service. And while we're still very much into rotating our wardrobe, there are a few pieces that have stood out so much, that we had to buy them straight from our rental box. Here are nine we couldn't bear to part with (and you don't even need to be a Nuuly subscriber to buy them).

I Switched from Rent the Runway to Nuuly for One Major Reason (Hint, Hint Plastic)

free people mock neck tee

1. Free People Lindsey Mock-neck Top

"I usually rent out-there things and only feel the need to wear them once before returning. So I was hesitant to even rent this top because it's just a basic tee. But it fits really well, and I know I'll wear it a lot, which is why I pulled the trigger." —Sophia K.

2. Levi's Oversized Reversible Fur Trucker

"I got a lot of compliments on this jacket when I rented it. I personally love how it looks more luxe and is much warmer than your average jean jacket, so I could even wear it during the winter with layers." —Ali B.

3. Free People Opposites Attract Mini Dress

"This dress is so soft—it's literally the most comfortable thing to throw on. I love wearing it with leggings and my Dr. Martens, because it's super easy and I almost feel like I'm in pajamas." —Mary D.

6. Apparis Tiarra Teddy Bear Jacket

"This oversized jacket actually makes bundling up really fun. It dresses up jeans, leather pants, black name it. Plus, it's roomy enough to wear anything underneath. Truly the do-it-all of winter coats." —Dena S.

7. Anthropologie Ursa Cardigan

"This sweater seems pretty basic, but I got more compliments on it than anything I have rented over the past few months. It layers effortlessly over nearly anything and is so soft. I literally wore it every day, so to be honest, I don't know how I would put together an outfit now without it." —Brianna L.

8. Free People Dolman Quilted Jacket

"I wore this all the time and I felt like it was a staple. It's oversized, so I can wear a sweater underneath, and it looks especially cute over jeans and a crop top or a dress." —Ali B.

9. Citizens Of Humanity Demy Crop Flare

"I have been searching for a pair of jeans that fit just right for years now and when these arrived my prayers were finally answered! They fit like a glove and I can't stop wearing them." —Heidi Z.
