From Armani to Versace, fashion is apart of our culture, our identity, and our everyday life. While fashion styles and trends will come and go with the decade, the pace at which we need to clean out and refill our closets can be surprisingly daunting. New age trends of subscription fashion services have cropped up to help people limit how much they consume, but this hasn’t helped consumers with how much they spend.
