3 Ways To Recycle A Cocktail Dress, According To Top Stylists

Share

Discerning fashion girls everywhere adore Armarium for its wide selection of elevated runway pieces available for rental, but more importantly, for its brigade of stylists who’ll assist them in putting together outfits for events, nay weekends, when they need to look their best. Armarium has just embellished that service with the introduction of Armibot, a digital stylist who compiles all your preferences, sizes and questions in order to generate customized lookbooks tailored to your personal needs. It suggests pieces not just to rent from the site but also pieces to purchase from a wide range of elevated retailers. (Think: Clueless algorithm that pulls from Armarium’s closet and all your favorite e-commerce sites.) Here, we asked a few of its top stylists to suggest pairings for a statement cocktail dress.
