Wantable Style Edit is a clothing styling subscription service (similar to Stitch Fix). You fill out an in-depth survey about your clothing preferences, and your stylist picks out items for you.

Wantable Style Edit Subscription Box Review - May 2015 Order Details

Here is my order invoice. The merchandise total is $345 and the keep-all discount is $86.25, so factoring that in plus the $20 credit, this box would cost $218.75 to keep all five items. (Roughly $43.75 an item).

These are my preferences for the Style Edit subscription. I decided to go with a more edgy/rock look than the bohemian Free People look I’ve favored in the past.

Wantable Style Edit Subscription Box Review - May 2015 Denim Jacket

Kut from the Kloth Denim Jacket – Cost to Keep $78

I’ve become a fan of Kut from the Kloth denim thanks to Stitch Fix. (I own several pairs of their jeans now). This jacket is really well made, and I like the color and cut of the denim too. It’s a win!

BCBGeneration Dipped Hem Dress – Cost to Keep $68

The material of this dress is so light-weight and soft – perfect for summer. I also like the subtle detail of the diagonal seam in the fron of the dress. I’m not crazy about the assymeticral hemline or the length though – it’s a little too much for me with a dress that is already a little loose/tent-like.

Jack Luna White Jacket – Cost to Keep $75 (On sale at Shopbop)

I fell in love with with the BB Dakota and Jack by BB Dakota line when I worked at ModCloth, so I was excited to see two pieces from the brand in this box. Unfortunately for me, when I put on this jacket I looked like I belonged in an ’80s music video. (The model from Shopbop makes it look cool, but I can’t pull off the look).

BB Dakota Colleen Shift Dress – Cost to Keep $85

I love the concept of this dress – it is a fully lined chiffon material, and the cut seems like a perfect dress for summer. Unfortunately I have two issues with it: the color and the armholes.

There’s just too much fabric making the armholes too big, and the color isn’t flattering on my skin tone.

DEX New York Heather Top with Lace – Cost to Keep $39

This is a lightweight fabric top, and I love that it’s basic with the colors, but the black lace adds a little interest.

Verdict: I think Wantable did a good job at selecting items that fit in the more edgy theme I was going for, and I think this was a good mix of items as well. (Although I probably would have preferred two tops instead of two jackets). I like the brands they included in this box, and I appreciate that almost everything is new currently selling online for the full retail price Wantable is charging. (That makes the 25% discount actually feel like a true discount).

Since this is the first month of Style Edit, I still want to see a few more boxes to get a good sense of the subscription, but so far I’m pleased. What do you think of Wantable Style Edit?

  1. It was SOOO expensive for me! And I gave very specific details and they still didn’t get it right, which was disappointing. I won’t use it again. Stitch Fix is way better, in my opinion.

  2. I was really hopeful on this. I love my Wantable accessories and intimates boxes. They really seem to have my style down on those, and are far and away my favorite boxes. With Stitch Fix, I usually find one or two keepers in each box.

    My Style Edit was the most disappointing box I’ve ever received. There was only one item that I sort of liked, and a gauzy cream colored jacket that I might have kept for price lower than the $88 they were asking. The rest ranged between ill fitting and downright ugly. And then I encountered an issue at checkout, where the “Return” button gives an error. But I have faith that Wantable’s excellent customer service will resolve it for me.

    Yours is much cuter than mine! I selected Classic rather than Rock.

  3. Wow, that is a great looking denim jacket! I have never owned, and in fact never liked, any denim jacket until now. Impressed.

  4. My first style edit was not good at all. I didn’t keep anything. I got two dresses (maxi’s) that were super long and honestly hideous..(one was lace and the other looked like something my mom would’ve worn in the 70’s) and I had indicated no maxi’s because I’m a shorty. I got a pair of Kut jeans, but they were also way too long, and a cami that was huge. The worst part for me is that I filled out the return check-out online indicating that I wasn’t keeping anything and took it to the post office (which is mega slow here in Hawaii…and I mean mega slow) and I got a notice that they were charging my card for all of the pieces. I emailed them and they extended it. I’m going to give it one more try, but so far I prefer Stitch Fix by far.

    • Hey, have you tried golden tote yet? I am trying it for the first time and it would be awesome to maybe swap or etc for us in Hawaii. I noticed golden tote has a lot of specific area swapping groups.

  5. I got two of the same items in my first box – the Kut jean jacket and grey too with lace accent. I also got a sweater, maxi dress and Kut boyfriend jeans (similar to something I got from Stitchfix.) Despite having a few jean jackets I kept the Kut one because it super comfy and flattering. My other jean jackets are boxy and this one nips in at the waist. I got a compliment the first day I wore. I wasn’t blown away by my first box but am trying again.

  6. They sent me a moto jacket that I loved, but already have a similar one, 2 oversized tanks that weren’t particularly flattering, the softest sweatshirt ever that I adored except the sleeves were too short and a pair of kut from the kloth jeans that make my butt look amazing. I only kept the jeans, but this box WAY exceeded my expectations.

  7. I’ve not been receiving great items from Stitch Fix lately … More misses than hits, so I was hopeful when I tried Wantable’s Style box. I really was surprised.. I received 3 items that I loved!

  8. I would love to try out either this or StitchFix. Would be nice to have someone pick out things for me instead of having to shop myself at times.

    • I’ve been using Stitch Fix over a year, and it’s hit or miss, but at least I feel like they’re asking the right questions to figure out what their customers want; I tried Style Edit and hated it. Everything they sent was in one of the four colors I have indicated on Stitch Fix’s profile editor as colors I never want to receive! The fact that Wantable seems mostly interested in trends, where Stitch Fix at least tries to suit individual preferences makes it an easy choice for me.

  9. I ordered the box but not sure what month mine will start, can’t wait! I love that gray top! Is that white jacket suppose to look like a straight jacket?

  10. They sent me a moto jacket that I have been living in, a pretty good pair of boyfriend style jeans, a couple of tops, and a beautiful beaded skirt that I loved but could not even pretend to fit into. I definitely liked it at least as much as a good stitchfix and better than golden tote, although I wish the price points had been a little lower in mine. The curation felt really thoughtful and I appreciated that they sent things that could make a couple of outfits together.
