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 – June 2015 Details

Here is my order invoice. The merchandise total is $377 and the keep-all discount is $94.25, so factoring that in plus the $20 credit, this box would cost $262.75 to keep all five items. (Roughly $52.55 an item).

These are my preferences for the Style Edit subscription. I decided to go with a more edgy/rock look.

Wantable Style Edit Subscription Box Review – June 2015 Sweatshirt

DEX Grey High-Lo Sweatshirt – Cost to Keep $59

I LOVE this sweatshirt! It is incredibly soft, and I love the detail on the collar and the zipper on the back:

BCBGeneration High Waist Legging – Cost to Keep $39 (Special Price)

These are another hit for me. I love high-waisted pants in general, and I’d consider these a cross between a legging and pant – AKA I would be comfortable wearing these as pants. (I also appreciate that Wantable matched the sale price from BCBG).

Wantable Style Edit Subscription Box Review – June 2015 Maxi

Bobi Cross Over Maxi Dress – Cost to Keep $85

This dress has knee-high slits on both sides, and the material is just the right weight – not too heavy for summer, not too light to be see-through. And thank goodness the straps are adjustable! I’ll still probably end up layering a cami underneath though:

Wantable Style Edit Subscription Box Review – June 2015 Dress

Tart Cassie Seamed Bodice Skater Dress – Cost to Keep $137

I can’t find this dress online, so I’m wondering if it is older stock. I love Tart – I think they make the most flattering dresses. I typically try to get their dresses on sale via sites like HauteLook though since they are pretty pricey.

I love the mix of a more edgy snakeskin print with a fit and flare shape, and the dress has pockets – always a nice bonus!

And the rose gold zipper on the back is a nice detail:

In conclusion, this dress is fab – but I’m not sure I’m OK paying $137 for it.

Wantable Style Edit Subscription Box Review – June 2015 Top

BB Dakota Anna Rose Top – Cost to Keep $57

Another brand I love! But this top was a miss. The fit was a little boxy at the hem and just not very flattering. Plus the color is pretty bold for me.

Verdict: This is one of the best styling boxes I’ve received in terms of matching my style. I’m really impressed with the curation of this box so far.

What do you think of the Wantable Stylist Edit?

  1. I also just received my second box and everything was awful, not my style, looked cheap and was way overpriced. I have returned everything in my first two boxes except one plain black tshirts that was $38 so I could use my styling fee. I had high hopes for this because I love the intimates and accessories boxes but I am canceling this one. I have been getting stitch fix for a while and Ive been pretty happy with it. There is usually at least a few items I keep each time and when I post items on pintrest they normally include them in my box which is a big plus. I also tried daily look elite for a while but found most of their stuff is not just not my style and too expensive for me.

  2. I just got my second box and it was pretty great for something I could keep basically nothing from–they sent great patterns and lots of colors, which I love. But three of the items were maxi dresses, which I just can’t wear as a 5′ tall girl (especially not in Seattle where something too long will get dragged through the rain, assuming it ever rains again). I see where they were going and I’m still going to keep this sub up for at least a few more boxes, but I am a little disappointed by the lack of variation.

  3. I have been a stitch fix subscriber for a year, it has been up and down. The last few fixes, I have had a different stylist each time. I have requested to have the same stylist but maybe since I give such bad feedback, they give me a new one. So I decided to try the wantable edit. My first box was awful! This second box was great! I loved 4 out of the 5 items. So I’ll give it another month. I just need to decide which one I want to cancel.

  4. Liz I’m not trying to be a buzz kill but that Tart dress is from like 2 years ago. Don’t pay 137.00 for it. Everything else is super cute!

  5. I’ve had hit and miss results from stitch fix. I tried Wantable style in June and it was terrible. I was hoping to keep at least one piece but I had to send it all back and lose the $20. I got 4 oversized, boxy polyester tanks. Basically the same shirt in four different colors. Except two of them were very similar tropical prints. Plus one pair of jeans that were okay but not worth $140 or whatever they were. Not my style at all. Cheap feeling clothes with high price tags.

    Anyone tried Keaton Row?

    • I’ve had the exact experience. My Style Edit was atrocious! And I love Wantable intimates and accessories. This review makes me almost consider trying again.

  6. I know it’s been cool, wet and rainy in our area. Did you ask for long sleeves? I think of all the style services that have been reviewed, I like the Wantable Style Edit reviews the best.

  7. How do you compare this to Stitch Fix? I had high hopes for Stitch Fix- they were going in the right direction, but didn’t get it quite right for my first two fixes, and then last month, I got the WORST fix ever (including colors I specifically had banned, a dress in a cut I specifically commented I didn’t want, and jeans a size smaller than was on my profile). There’s one on the way now and I’ll see how it is…

    • I’ve been a subscriber to StitchFix (on and off) for over a year and a half. They’ve been up and down for me… I think because stylists don’t tend to stay there long and when I finally do get somebody that gets my style, they leave and I start with someone new! But the last couple fixes I’ve gotten with them have been on point. I’ve kept 7 out of the 10 items I’ve received in the last two months! I also like the fact that StitchFix will look at your Pinterest board to get an idea of your style and items you like.

      I’ve gotten two Wantable boxes so far and I’m not happy with them at all. With the first box I got, I kept one item so as not to lose my $20, but I sent everything from my last box back. Everything was just awful! I think they have better brands than StitchFix, but their prices are also higher. I’d actually be happy with the items Liz received, at least they’re close to my style. I think I’m going to cancel them.

    • Just wanted to also say that I got a couple of fixes like yours from Stitch Fix, with terrible items that didn’t match my profile or Pinterest board. I wrote detailed feedback to them, and both times they gave me a new stylist and the next fixes I got afterwards were great. One time they even waived the $20 styling fee.

      • That’s good to know! I did lose my styling fee last month, of course, and was just so mad that they ignored things I specifically said I didn’t like. For the first couple, the things that weren’t right related to attempts to address what I requested (for example, I said I wear all black and would like some color- and I got this crazy red patterned dress that I’d never consider), but they made sense. This time, it was all just so wrong. In particular, this absolutely hideous purple polyester skirt with this weird yellow/gold rope pattern on it. I specifically banned purple and yellow, and said I didn’t like cheap-looking clothing. I really wish I had taken a picture, because it might have been the ugliest thing I have ever seen. Not sure if we can post pictures here, but that would be an idea- post pictures of the most hideous things we have received from clothing subscription boxes!

  8. i don’t think I could bring myself to pay over $50 for a sweatshirt no matter how much I liked it.

    I almost bought shoes (at Shoe Carnival, on sale, because I’m cheap) in the color of that last shirt this weekend. But I didn’t have anything to wear them with.

    I’m kind of curious to try one of these services and see how they do for me (because I seem to have completely different taste from most of the people who review them on blogs) but I know I would never want to cough up the $$$ to actually buy any of the pieces, so it’d pretty much be a wasted styling fee.

    • I think it will make for a great review 🙂

      • I don’t have a dress form and no way is anyone seeing pictures of me trying on clothes…
