Trunk Club Plus Size Subscription Box Review – April 2017
Trunk Club is a clothing styling service for both men and women. Subscribers work closely with their stylist to find a selection of pieces to try on at home, and they receive a trunk shortly thereafter. Trunks can be ordered as often as you like, so you can try it once, or have a trunk sent to you quarterly or monthly. Or even more frequently!
Trunk Club is a Nordstrom company, and they send similar brands that range in the $75-300 range. In the style profile, you can choose your preferred price range for each category (ie. $50-100, $100-200, or $200+)

So first, a little more about how Trunk Club works. When I signed up, I took a pretty lengthy style questionnaire online. Then I was matched with a stylist, Kelly, who asked me even more about what I like and what I was looking for via an online chat. Based on this information, she selected ten items for me to try on at home. She then sent me a link to preview all my items! This month I decided to try everything she selected.
This packet was also included in my trunk.
This is a note from my stylist, Kelly. That’s right, I’m finally taking the family to Yellowstone at the end of the month! Super excited! So I asked for pieces for that, plus some things for work. Let’s see how she did!
This is my invoice. It lists the items I was sent and the cost to keep each item. My $25 styling fee will be deducted from anything I decide to keep. There is also a reminder to provide feedback on their website or app about how well each item worked for me.
On the back of the invoice are instructions for returning the items I don’t want to keep. I can drop my box back off at any UPS location, or I can schedule a free pickup through the Trunk Club app!
These items were also in the packet. When I’ve finished repackaging the items I don’t want to keep in the box, I just put this return label on it and use the tape straps to tape it back up! So convenient!
Twisty Turn Tee by Zella – Cost to keep $55
OK, I know this is a little spendy for a tee, but I love it! I actually cannot believe that I am wearing a light blue top that’s not super fattening, it’s a big problem I usually have. I also noticed it is really high quality, and I like the inside knot detail a lot!
‘Hatha’ High Waist Crop Leggings by Zella – Cost to keep $54
These leggings are super supportive! I love the way they are shaping but not too constricting. The only problem is…
… I think these sheer panels in the back are really stylish, but make the backs of my calves look even bigger. I’m so torn!
Off the Shoulder Blouse by Sejour – Cost to keep $79
This top might be my favorite piece in the box! I love the cotton blend material and how it hangs. It’s thin, so it’s not too blousy. It’s the right length and cut, too. I didn’t think I would like it because of the print, but I think the print is great!
Jersey Sharkbite Hem Tank Dress by Sejour – Cost to keep $108
I like the idea of this dress, but I don’t think it’s right for me. It’s a thin cotton jersey, but the cut is off for my figure. It’s a little high-waisted for my shape. Also, you can’t really see it here, but the sides of my bra are pretty much exposed, and obviously I am not into that.
Helena Denim Jacket by Kut from the Kloth – Cost to keep $89
This is another strong contender for the favorite piece this month. I never thought I would love a white denim jacket, but here we are! It completely changes the whole look of the dress. I like the cut and proportions on me a lot. I also love the color! My only issue is that I don’t know if I should spend so much on a jacket when it’s about to get super hot here. It would be awesome for my trip out west, though…
Josephine Eyelet Embroidered Off the Shoulder Top by NYJD – Cost to keep $108
I am totally loving the season’s embroidered details, but I don’t think this top is right for me. The crisp cotton makes it just too blousy and boxy for me. I am not really into tops that add volume.
Verdict: This was another awesome package from Trunk Club! It was another mix of hits and misses, but wow, a white denim jacket! I love it! I got a lot of cool pieces this month. I am becoming a big fan of Trunk Club!
