Wantable Style Edit Subscription Box Review – February 2017
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

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. I can go back and change my preferences at any time.
Below my preferences is a note from my stylist, Kate. 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 $456.50. If I keep everything, I get 20% off, plus I get my $20 styling fee deducted. That brings the total down to $345.20 for a discount of $111.30. That’s a deep discount!
Deep V-Neck Top by Melissa McCarthy for Seven7 – Cost to Keep $84
For a black shirt, I don’t really feel like this is very flattering on me. I like the rayon blend material, but I think it might just be too much draping. It’s okay, but I don’t love it.
Coated Skirt by Melissa McCarthy for Seven7 – Cost to Keep $68 (on sale from $98!)
This skirt is super cool! It’s a cotton blend, but it has a coating on it that gives it a leather look. I really like the cut and the length, but it’s a little big on me. I think I might try to exchange it for a size down.
Stripe Cardigan by Umgee – Cost to Keep $59
This cardigan is super warm and cozy! It’s a cotton blend, and I like the mix of neutrals. I don’t love the pattern, though, and I don’t think it’s particularly flattering.
Plaid Button Up Tunic by Emerald – Cost to Keep $49
I love a cozy flannel top as much as the next person, but this one is just too long. Isn’t it? Is it supposed to be a dress? It says tunic on the info sheet. Right?
Black Skinny Jean by Kensie – Cost to Keep $78
These jeans are SO BLACK. I love that! I don’t want any light to escape the surface of my legs. I also tend to love Kensie jeans because they have the perfect mix of cotton, poly, and spandex. I am not really in the market for black jeans right now, but these are pretty awesome.
Woven Mix Henley by Lucky – Cost to Keep $59.50
I love this top! I like the way it looks on me, I like the neckline, and I love the color and pattern. The printed section down the front is a crisp cotton, and the rest of it a semi-sheer knit. This is perfect for February and will make a nice transition piece into spring.
Blouson Dress by Gilli – Cost to Keep $59
This dress is super easy and pretty, and I like the way it looks on me. It’s a poly blend with little purple flowers, and it feels great. I think this one’s a win!
Verdict: I am really loving my Wantable Style Edit! I am so happy they sent seven items again this month! Wantable Style is fast becoming one of my favorite boxes all month. This month I think I have found three new pieces I totally love, but most everything was so great I’m still undecided about a few things. I love the mix of items Wantable always sends – at least a couple of things I know I will love, plus several that I just don’t know until I try them on. It’s so fun!
