Wantable Style Edit Subscription Box Review – October 2016
Wantable Style Edit has been a major player in the subscription styling service market for over a year now, and they just started offering plus sizes at the end of July. I was thrilled to get the chance to try them out! Wantable Style Edit is one of several different subscription boxes offered by Wantable, including Wantable Intimates, Accessories, Fitness, and Makeup.
This box was sent to us at no cost to review (Check out our review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)
The Subscription Box: Wantable Style Edit

Ships to: U.S. only for free (both directions!)
Keep Track of Your Subscriptions: Add this box to your subscription list or wishlist!
When I signed up for this service, I took a pretty lengthy quiz in which I indicated my price, size, and style preferences. Wantable uses a great model of indicating what you love, what you like and what you dislike, for all their subscriptions! They send you more of what you love, and never what you dislike. These are the preferences I selected. I can go back and change them at any time.
Below my preferences is a note from my stylist, Christina. It explains why she chose the items she picked for me.
This is the invoice of the items they sent me this month. On the right, it shows my cost to keep each item. The total comes to $442.50. If I keep everything, I get 20% off, plus I get my $20 styling fee deducted. That brings the total down to $334 for a discount of $108.50. That’s a deep discount!
Leslie Cowl Neck Tunic by Umgee – Cost to Keep $49
I love this tunic! I need more basic black pieces, and this will go so well with leggings and boots now that leggings and boots season is finally upon us! I think the cut is fairly flattering, too.
Keira Kimono Sleeve Top by Kiyonna – Cost to Keep $62
This is a super cute top, but wow. I don’t think all that ruching is doing anything for my figure at all. Sadly, I think this has to go back.
Georgia Bootcut Jeans by Lucky – Cost to Keep $89.50
I have actually never tried jeans from Lucky before! I’m so glad to get the chance to try them out! I am kind of undecided on them at the moment, though. They probably could stand to be hemmed an inch or so, but that’s normal for all my pants. I like the wash a lot, but I don’t know if the cut is particularly flattering or not.
Forever Denim Jacket Corlear by Kensie – Cost to Keep $78
I am becoming a huge fan of Kensie denim thanks to Wantable Style! I think this is the third month in a row they have sent me something from Kensie. I love this jacket! I wish I didn’t already have a couple of denim jackets that are new. I might have to send it back, which is breaking my heart.
Robby Dress by Tart Collections – Cost to Keep $164
I love this dress! I think it’s perfect for the season, and I love the little tie at the neckline. It’s kind of expensive, though, so I’m not totally sure if I should keep it or not.
Verdict: I am really loving my Wantable Style Edit so far! I really loved everything they sent this month, even though I don’t think the Kiyonna top is very flattering on me. It’s still so much fun to try everything on! I absolutely love the tunic and the dress. I honestly feel like Wantable has done a fabulous job so far of choosing items that I really like and will get a lot of use out of. This is such a fun subscription!
