Wantable Style Edit Subscription Box Review – March 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
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!

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. 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 month, you can see some of the input I gave her just above her note. This is the first time I have seen my own request on this sheet!
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 $504.50. If I keep everything, I get 20% off, plus I get my $20 styling fee deducted. That brings the total down to $383.60 for a discount of $120.90. That’s a deep discount!
Striped Swing Top by Oddi – Cost to Keep $48
I really thought I would love this top, but I don’t like it on me that much. It is a super soft cotton knit, and I like the colors, but I don’t like the fit. I think the cut is a bit fattening on me.
Skinny Curvy Flat Black Jeans by James Jeans – Cost to Keep $200
I think these jeans look pretty good on me, and black jeans are always flattering, but yowza. Two hundred dollars. James Jeans always look good, but they’re so spendy! Is the “super flex technology” worth it?
Duofold Plaid Pink Flannel Top by Lucky – Cost to Keep $79.50
I love flannel shirts so much. They are so cozy and comfortable! And I love the colors in this one especially.
This top also has these super stylish buttons along the side seams. For a flannel shirt, this one is also oddly flattering. Is it worth the price tag, though?
Hi Low Basic Tee by Dex – Cost to Keep $29
This is a basic cotton blend knit tee. The color and cut are super flattering. I don’t see how I could go wrong with this.
Rolled Cuff Denim Jeans by Vigoss – Cost to Keep $60 (on sale from $84!)
These jeans are super cute, and they have a great shape! They have a little less stretch to them than I usually like, but they’re a good length for me. Plus they’re ON SALE.
Printed Kimono by Emerald Fashion – Cost to Keep $49
I am so happy that kimonos of this type have come into fashion over the past couple of years – they are so flattering! This is a very pretty, lightweight, semi-sheer chiffon. I just don’t like the print. I think it reminds me of a Hawaiian shirt.
Burgundy Shift Dress by Janette – Cost to Keep $39
When I first saw this knit cotton mini dress, I just thought, there’s no way. But I actually really like it on me. Plus, check this out:
It has an awesome keyhole in the back! I love stylish details like this. It makes me want to get an up-do.
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 four MUST KEEP pieces! 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!
