Trunk Club Plus Size Subscription Box Review – May 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+)
My Subscription Addiction paid for this box. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

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, except for one piece. She put the same leggings I tried last month on my preview in a different color. I passed on that one.
This packet was also included in my trunk.
This is a note from my stylist, Kelly. She must have been really busy! She usually tells me why she picked items out for me every month.
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!
Oversized Double V-Neck Tee by Sejour – Cost to keep $59
I don’t think this tee is a good look for me. It’s not the right color, and it’s just so boxy.
Here’s a look at the back. It’s an interesting detail, but I kind of feel like otherwise I’m wearing a sack.
Rib Knit Tank by Sejour – Cost to keep $35
This tank looks kind of awful in this picture, but it’s because the shorts are a bit too tight. If I were wearing better fitting bottoms, I would say this is a really nice fitting tank. It flows really well. I only really hesitate on this one because I already have a ribbed olive tank, but it’s not got the same great cut.
Roll Cuff Stretch Denim Shorts by Kut from the Kloth – Cost to keep $79
These shorts are cute, but I think I already have this exact pair. These are too tight for me! Normally I would consider exchanging, but since I already have them, there’s no point.
Stardust Jacket by Zella – Cost to keep $95
I really like this jacket! It’s a nylon blend with a little stretch, and I absolutely love the cutaway sections. This will be perfect for vacation.
The Verdict: I am normally a big fan of Trunk Club, but this was not my favorite package from them. Nothing really wowed me, although I did get a few nice pieces. I feel like it wasn’t as special as usual, and maybe my stylist was distracted or something. Oh well, here’s hoping my next trunk is better!
What do you think of Trunk Club? What pieces did you get?
