I feel like everywhere I look, there are new subscription boxes popping up. Am I the only one? This is especially true with the clothing subscription boxes…so many new ones and I wondered what were the differences between them all?
Well, I am here to help you figure that out!
I am only going to be discussing clothing subscription boxes, because those are the ones that I am members of.
This was the first fashion subscription box that I tried. I think they are one of the best companies out there, and here is why:
- They offer a wide range of sizes.
- They really consider your feedback.
- They pay attention to what you pin on Pinterest. I have a whole board dedicated to Stitch Fix clothes. I know that not everything I pinned will come in one of my boxes, but they do get a great sense of your style from what you pin on Pinterest.
- You get a 25% off discount if you buy the entire box. I have only done this once, but it does make a difference.
- You don’t have to get them monthly, if you don’t want to. I get my every 2 months.
- You have the same stylist, meaning that they get to know you and listen to your feedback each time.
- The $20 styling fee comes out of your final bill for what you choose to keep, so you should always keep something.
- The boxes include 5 items in each box, including one accessory.
- Your stylist writes you a personalized note about what is in each box and how she thinks it should be styled.
- Their customer service is fantastic. I had a stain on a shirt, and they sent me a new one. No questions asked. I did return the stained one, however.
- They do try to stay within your budget, but sometimes things are more expensive than they would be in a store.
- There is a $20 stylist fee for each box.
This was the second type of box that I tried. I heard great things about it, so why not give it a go? It’s different than Stitch Fix because you can get as many boxes as they can send you in a month. You pay a monthly fee for your boxes and can purchase the pieces by simply keeping the pieces you love. You don’t have to go through a “Check Out” process.
- You get as many boxes as you want in a month.
- You can keep and wear the clothes as long as you want. This is basically like renting the clothes and keeping what you like.
- In your profile, you are able to put your Pinterest board URL (I use the same one that I do for Stitch Fix) so that your stylist can get your personal style.
- You get at least one item from the ones that you “like” on their website in each box. The stylist will pick out other things that she thinks you will enjoy.
- My boxes include 5 items in them.
- You can suspend your totes if it becomes a bit overwhelming.
- You have to pay a monthly fee on top of the price of the items you want to keep. I pay $49/month for my totes.
- There is no discount if you want to keep everything.
- Their sizes aren’t as generous as Stitch Fix. In other words, they don’t have bigger sizes that I currently need.
- The stylists do listen to what you have to say, but I feel like the clothes aren’t always the best fits for me. They definitely make you come out of your comfort zone.
- The boxes seem to be more hit or miss than Stitch Fix.
This subscription box is the newest that I have started trying. I have only gotten one of these boxes so far, so I am definitely not an expert. But I do think it’s a good combo between Stitch Fix and Le Tote. It’s closely related to Stitch Fix.
- You get to choose your favorites that they add to your box.
- They had a free 3 months of styling fees promotion that I scooped up. After my 3 months, I will be paying $20/month if I choose to continue with them.
- You get about 7 items per box, including at least one accessory.
- You can schedule your boxes to be as frequent or spaced out as you would like.
- These clothes are more contemporary and trendy than what I typically like.
- When I got my first box, it was more winter things than the season (I ordered my first one in April). There should have been more spring pieces.
If I rated them, it would go as follows:
- Stitch Fix – I have gotten the most boxes from Stitch Fix and I love them. I really feel like they try to give you clothes that you will love. And if you don’t love something, they take that feedback and remember. They also know what you have kept from past boxes and style new clothes for those items as well.
- Daily Look – I haven’t gotten a ton of these, but I like that I get 7 items in each box. I also got a really fun looking purse last time, which I liked but I didn’t end up keeping it. It just wasn’t for me, but they tried.
- Le Tote – This one is last for me because I am paying $50/month for it. I just don’t think it’s really worth that price for the types of clothes I have gotten. I have a new one coming soon, but I will probably cancel it soon, because $50/month is a lot of money to spend on a subscription box.
Which subscription box service is your favorite?
