Fashion subscription boxes are a trend that isn’t going away. And there are many good reasons for this. If you are the kind of person who finds buying clothing frustrating, is short on time, feels uncomfortable in a tiny dressing room (so, everyone), or simply wants a professional to help curate your wardrobe, they’re definitely worth a try.
Here are four different ones to consider:
My List at Bloomingdales
What makes this box stand out from the rest is that you get to choose exactly what’s in it. Pick the items you like and add them to your “Closet.” Four items are shipped to you, and when you’re over them, you can send them back and get something else from your “Closet.” It’s that simple. You get to try four items a month at a cost of $150. If there’s something you want to keep (and you probably will), you get an insider price.
If you’re a fan of Bloomingdales, this subscription is a must-have. It’s also great if you’re an influencer or simply hate wearing the same things all the time.
What’s great about Stitch Fix is that it’s for everyone, with boxes for women, men, kids, petites, plus sizes, maternity, and big and tall. For just $20 (which is about how much it costs to park at the mall these days), a stylist personally curates your box to fit your style, budget, and body. If you decide to keep something, that $20 credit is applied, essentially making the styling free. You pay for the pieces you want to keep and return what you don’t want. Stitch Fix can be a smart and stylish solution for anyone who would rather have someone else choose their clothing.
Activewear can be expensive, especially if you tend to workout a lot, but that doesn’t mean it has to be. Yoga Club offers activewear and athleisure from a variety of labels including Splendid, Manduka, Onzie, and Beyond Yoga for 50% less than what you would normally pay.
There are three different box options. The Mantra has one pair of leggings for $45 (which is a really great deal when you think about it). The Karma ($65) features a two-piece outfit, while the Guru ($75) has three pieces, usually a pair of leggings and two tops.
While you don’t get to choose what’s in your box, it’s yours for keeps or it can be exchanged for something else. Either way, prepare for compliments at the gym.
10 Wooster is my favorite clothing subscription box for so many reasons. You get five pieces for $95. Keep them for 30 days and then swap out for another box. Anything you want to keep forever is yours at a pretty generous discount.
I had this box for a while and I was surprised at how spot-on the stylist was with not only figuring out my style (like all other boxes, you take a quiz) but also finding things that flatter my petite hourglass body (sounds easier than it is—trust me). The clothing is sourced from some of the most on-trend brands including Joie, Blank NYC, Reformation, Rebecca Taylor, and For Love and Lemons. It’s also a female-owned small business, so you can shop and subscribe guilt-free.
When it comes to getting dressed, sometimes the right choice can be someone else’s decision.
