We live and breathe subscription boxes here at MSA, and we know our readers do too. This January, we surveyed YOU for your favorite boxes across several categories, and we're happy to finally be able to share the results!
Read on to see which 6 boxes you voted for topped the charts in the "Best Women's Fashion Box" category - and see our pick for the box to watch for 2017. (This category was so popular we split it into two lists! This one focuses on clothing/apparel, and there's one more for jewelry/accessories!)
Best Women's Fashion Subscription Boxes
1. Stitch Fix, $20 Styling Fee
Stitch Fix is a monthly clothing and personal styling subscription service. When you sign up, you take an in-depth survey about your sizes, your style, and pricing preferences. After choosing when you’d like to receive your delivery, your stylist handpicks 5 items based on your preferences.
The styling fee is $20, and that includes free shipping and free returns. And if you keep any of the items they send you, you get to deduct the $20 fee from the total. Their average item price to keep the item is $55, but you can specify your ideal price range in your survey. (If you keep all five items, you also get a 25% discount!)
Stitch Fix offers apparel, shoes, and accessories for women (including plus, petites, and maternity) as well as men.
