The ability to wear fun, stylish clothes, then return items when they are no longer needed is an entirely new concept.

Washington, DC (PRWEB) August 27, 2013

There is a new way to shop for kids clothes this back-to-school season, designed for parents who:

-Love, or would love, to dress their children in top brands and standout styles;
-Shop online and price-compare to save money;
-End up removing tons of adorable, top-brand yet hardly-worn items from their kids’ closets (some with tags still intact) once or twice a year because they grow so quickly?

Wearhop, http://www.wearhop.com, a brand new concept in children’s fashion, offers a fun, flexible way for parents to dress their children ages one to four in top kids’ brands—for less.

“I would like to think that I am a conservative spender,” said wearhop founder Katerina Newell, a mom of two kids under the age of 4. “So, I was shocked to realize that I have spent thousands of dollars on my kids’ clothing. And the oldest one is only 3!”

At http://www.wearhop.com, parents can now rent new and ‘like new’ children’s clothes from their favorite brands for significantly less than it would cost to purchase the items. Wearhop carries a hand-picked collection of the best everyday styles, special occasion wear and outerwear from top brands, including crewcuts, Ralph Lauren, mini Boden, Janie & Jack, Hanna Andersson, Lilly Pulitzer, Tea Collection and more in sizes 12 months to 4T.

Parents can save a lot of money by renting their kids’ clothes for a season, versus buying them. For example, a Janie & Jack dress that retails for $69, can be rented for a season new for 40% off or 'like new' for 64% off. Parents can save even more, up to 70% off, for special occasion items, which can be rented for as little as one month.

All clothing may be rented for one to six months, and when a child is done wearing the clothes: simply send them back.

“The ability to wear fun, stylish clothes, then return items when they are no longer needed is an entirely new concept,” Newell said. “I started wearhop to help parents dress kids in their favorite brands affordably and create fresh, clutter-free wardrobes. When the kids outgrow the pieces or the season changes, you simply return and ‘hop’ to the next size or style.”

The inspiration for wearhop she attributes to her two kids, who she said constantly outgrow their closets. “Every season I would go through buying new clothes and putting away old clothes that still looked new, but became too small,” said Newell. “Kids this age grow too quickly to wear out the clothes. Instead, the clothes end up collecting dust in the basement, waiting for me to take them to a consignment store, which of course I never do. With two young kids and a hyperactive dog, I just don’t have the time!”

Parents renting from wearhop have the option to return clothing early, keep it longer by extending the rental period for up to a total of six months, or purchase it. Most items may be purchased at retail value minus what has been paid in rental fees. The purchase price for each item is included in the item's description.

“You can call it renting or just think of us as your big online closet” said Newell. “We are just hoping to make parents’ lives easier and save them some money in the process!”

Wearhop also features flat rate shipping on all orders and free return shipping at the end of the rental period. There is no membership required and parents can rent as many or as few items as often as they want.
