Trunk Club Plus Size Subscription Box Review – September 2017

This post may contain referral/affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

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 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 eight 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 included in my trunk.

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.

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!

Long Bell Sleeve Fit Flare Dress by Eliza J – Cost to keep $148 (Not on Nordstrom.com)

This dress is cute and comfortable, but it’s just not my style. It’s a nice heavy poly blend knit. It reminds me a bit of a cheerleading uniform.

Tiered Sleeve Shirt by Evans – Cost to keep $59 (Not on Nordstrom.com)

I love this top! The print is so delicate and pretty! I guess blouses that tie at the neck are in vogue at the moment. I thought it might make my neck look stumpy, but I think it actually looks pretty nice.

Velvet Ankle Trousers by Sejour – Cost to keep $99

I thought I would hate these trousers, but I actually think they look pretty cool. They feel great on, too.

Embroidered Chambray Top by Evans – Cost to keep $49 (on sale for $29.40)

Of all the chambray tops I’ve received in styling boxes, this is my favorite! I could really see myself wearing this! I love the embroidery and the neckline.

High Waist Leggings by Caslon – Cost to keep $49

These leggings are cute but unusual. They are definitely opaque, but they have the stretch of tights. I prefer my leggings to have a bit more compression. Plus I think I’m all set for black leggings.

Bell Sleeve Lace Top by Vince Camuto – Cost to keep $99

I am starting to think Vince Camuto is just not for me. I like the style of this top, but the fit is just not good for my body type. This is also a good example of how certain necklines make my neck look stumpy.

Woven Swing AOP Blouse by Michel Studio – Cost to keep $58

Speaking of stumpy necks… I think the fall colors and print on this top are just beautiful! Otherwise, though, it’s a bit of a mess on me. I am not a huge fan of this new trend of random ruffles everywhere, but this top also has an elastic neck. Let that sink in for a minute. It’s also just not the right season for basically sleeveless tops.

Button Back Print Top by Daniel Rainn – Cost to keep $69 (Not on Nordstrom.com)

This top, on the other hand, is perfect! I love the colors and print for fall! It’s a nice, lightweight poly blend, so it doesn’t wrinkle, and I think the sleeves are gorgeous. It’s also the right length, and I really like the way it looks on me.

The Verdict: I am a big fan of Trunk Club! This month, as usual, was a collection of hits and misses, but I definitely have some winners in there! I love the Daniel Rainn and tie-neck tops! I think Trunk Club is a little on the spendy side, but it’s still loads of fun to try all the pieces.

What do you think of Trunk Club? What pieces did you get?

  1. i love your reviews! The voting is fun too. I really like that denim top. Their prices are a bit steep for me. Especially when we can find similar items for half the price

  2. Those shoes, Anna.

  3. “Let that sink in for a minute.”

    Yeah…

    😬

    • 😂😂😂

  4. I also can’t do Vince Camuto. I got 3 shirts from them in my trunk and all of them had fit issues. Sejour works well for me. I love the last top and would consider requesting it specifically in my trunk.
    Also, they sent me some amazing jeans, but at $139 I had to send them back. It hurt putting them back in the box.

    • I ❤️ Sejour also! 🙂
