Retail brand Marks and Spencer has launched a rental service of their clothes including over 40 women's pieces. 

The new money-saving service will let you rent items for up to four, 10 or 30 days with both rental fees and delivery both ways covered. 

Some of the items up for grabs are dresses, coats, tops, and skirts and it's perfect for the upcoming Christmas season if you only plan on wearing an item once or twice. 

Rental starts from £18 with the M&S X Ghost floral midi dress for four days, which would normally have a retail price of £69, plus the £18 also included the £5 rental fee. 

The popular brand is using the Hiresite website to rent out its products and customers are advised to be quick as popular items will be snapped up. 

M&S is not the only clothing brand that has begun renting clothes out, with top designer labels Jimmy Choo, Chanel, Gucci, and Ted Baker all offering rentals.

In fact, if you want a taste of the designer life but want to save money you can hire a Chanel blazer for £154 for three days, which has a retail price of £3,500.

There are some things to remember when renting clothes, including that you can't try items on beforehand so you'll need to check the store's policy for refunds. 

Plus be aware that you need to return items on time or you could face a fine, with the typical price of £25 per day, so use a tracked delivery service and record postage.
