Wantable Style Edit Subscription Box Review – November 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
The Cost: $20 styling fee per month, plus the cost of whatever you decide to keep. The styling fee is deducted from your purchase. You save 20% off everything if you keep the entire shipment!
The Products: 5-7 apparel items handpicked to meet your price, style, and size preferences
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, Kiley. 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 $253. If I keep everything, I get 20% off, plus I get my $20 styling fee deducted. That brings the total down to $182.40 for a discount of $70.60. That’s a deep discount!
Faux Wrap Maxi by Emerald – Cost to Keep $49
This is the second maxi dress I have tried from Emerald, and the second one I’ve completely loved. It looks great! I think the black and white really works somehow!
Scoop Back Knit Top by Umgee – Cost to Keep $48
I don’t feel like this tunic is very flattering on me at all, and I don’t really understand why it’s called a scoop back top. The back is pretty ordinary, honestly. I like the color, but otherwise, this top is a miss for me.
Jeggings by Kensie – Cost to Keep $68
I have some jeans from Kensie (also from my Wantable Style Edit) that fit me like a glove and that I’ve been wearing nonstop since I got them, but I’m not really in love with these jeggings. They seem a little plain, and they don’t feel as great as I would like them to. I think I am also good on jeggings at the moment.
Drape Front Cardigan by Emerald – Cost to Keep $39
I completely love this cardigan! I don’t have anything like it, and the length makes it extra versatile. It’s also super soft. I think I will get loads of use out of this!
Floral Print Keyhole Dress by Umgee – Cost to Keep $49
I have mixed feeling about this dress. I love the keyhole, and I love the pattern, but wow. That’s a lot of floral pattern. I feel a little like a sofa in this.
This month, subscribers received a free tote as a bonus item! Fun!
Verdict: I am really loving my Wantable Style Edit so far! I think this month I received a lot of items I should have liked more than I actually did once I tried everything on. I completely love the dress and the cardigan! The top and jeggings were a miss, and I’m still not sure about the floral dress, but trying everything on is always a lot of fun. 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!
