So you’re not the world’s most fashionable person? So what! These clothing subscription services are great for aspiring fashionistas who are looking for style without the hassle.
You may have heard of or shopped from thredUP, an online consignment store that offers more than 35,000 different brands at up to 90% off retail. However, you may not know about the site’s Goody Box service, which sends a box of 10 like-new items for you to try every two, three, or four months. Keep what you want, and send back the rest! The delivery fee is only $10, and it’s used towards whatever items you keep. If you don’t want a subscription, you can also purchase Goody Boxes one at a time.
If you have an Amazon Prime account, you have access to Prime Wardrobe, where you can choose up to eight items to be delivered to your home and only pay for what you keep. That said, it’s the Personal Shopper service that you’ll want to pay particular attention to since this is where a stylist picks items based on your preferences. You then choose eight pieces from your stylist’s selections. And with a $4.99 styling fee, it is an absolute steal!
Nadine West offers the ultimate budget shopping experience. After completing your style quiz, Nadine West stylists curate a package for you to be delivered every month that includes four to six items, all of which are priced between $10 and $30. Anything you keep is deducted from the $9.78 delivery fee. Plus, you can offer feedback to ensure your next package is more in line with your style preferences.
Stitch Fix is well-known for a reason. Using your responses from the website’s comprehensive style quiz, Stitch Fix stylists personalize a box of fashionable items to be delivered to your door. The styling fee is $20 per “Fix,” but the cost per item ranges between $25 and $500 (you select your preferred budget range through the style quiz). Unlike many other subscription services, with Stitch Fix, you have to opt-in to autoship Fixes. Plus, you select the frequency at which you receive your shipments (whether on-demand or on a regular basis). The company also recently introduced the option to buy individual items directly from the website without ordering a Fix.
Nordstrom’s subscription service is one of the most flexible out there. The styling fee is $25, which is applied to any item you choose to keep (if you use your Nordstrom card, that fee is waived). Additionally, there is no obligation to subscribe; you can simply purchase a box whenever you feel you need a wardrobe refresh. Nordstrom Trunk Club takes the initiative to offer price-range options, so you can choose exactly the price range you’re comfortable with prior to receiving a delivery. Its stylists can even shop Nordstrom sales for you!
