Daily Look Elite Box Subscription Review – May 2017
Daily Look Elite Box is a monthly clothing and styling subscription service similar to Stitch Fix, Wantable Style Edit, and Trunk Club. When you sign up, you take an in-depth survey about your sizes, your style, and pricing preferences. Your stylist handpicks items based on your preferences and they generally range from $50-$300.
Before your box ships, Daily Look Elite sends you a preview, where you can remove items and let them know why. You also have the option of looking through their website and favoriting items that they will consider adding to your boxes.
The fee for this service is $40, and that includes free shipping and free returns. And if you keep any of the items they send you, you get to deduct the $40 fee from the total. You can skip a month anytime.
This box was sent to us at no cost for review. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).

Inside my box was an envelope with information, invoice, and a return bag. Inside the envelope was this letter from my stylist, Lisa. She notes a couple of the pieces sent and why they were chosen and how to style them. This month is all about mixing and matching!
I also received a packing slip that lists each item and the price it would cost to keep each. I received eight items this month! I seriously do not know how everything fit in the box – so much 🙂
I also received a prepaid return label and instructions. You have five days to decide what you’d like to keep or return. Once I decided, I headed over to my online account to let Daily Look Elite know which items I’d be keeping vs. returning. It also gave me the opportunity to provide feedback on what I liked and disliked.
Jack by BB Dakota Rover Cotton Jacket – Cost to keep: $84
The first item I tried on is this lightweight jacket made by Jack by BB Dakota, a brand I am familiar with. It is a soft gray mix of two different fabrics: the shell is 100% rayon and the sleeves are 70% polyester and 30% cotton. Overall, it’s super lightweight and probably more appropriate for spring than summer months, but still nice to have on hand for chillier nights.
I really like the mixed media and combination of textures. The shell is soft and smooth and balances nicely with the nubby woven sleeves. There’s also a waist drawstring closure and two large pockets.
There’s also a hood made of the same fabric as the sleeves. I wouldn’t want to be caught in a rainstorm with this jacket on, but do think this is nice-to-have on a breezy day.
Ithaca Greek Tile Print Tunic – Cost to keep: $78
The first of a few tops this month has a great kaftan quality to it. This is totally my style and I am pleased DailyLook Elite sent this to try on!
The tunic is comprised of 100% rayon and the silhouette is super relaxed, oversized and has a high-low hem. It’s easy to pair with leggings but short enough that it would look cute with shorts during the summer. There’s a deep v-neck I typically shy away from but I think it works well here. The blue and white pattern reminds me of toile but done in a more modern, boho way.
The dolman sleeves hit just below the elbow and are nice and wide.
BB Dakota Floret Halter Top – Cost to keep: $69
More BB Dakota! This halter top is comprised of 100% polyester chiffon and lined in the front. It is fitted at the neck but has an A-line silhouette which makes it nice and flowy at the hips. It fits really well and I like that the neck can be adjusted.
The print is again a nice mix of blue and white which is a nice contrast against the salmon background. It’s a pretty top!
I’ve styled this top with skinny denim to show off the high-low hemline. I really like the relaxed yet feminine look this top provides.
Here’s a closer look at the back neck tie.
Just Black Korye Sleek Mid Rise Crop Skinny Jean – Cost to keep $78
I like that DailyLook Elite typically includes one pair of jeans in each box. This pair is a classic dark wash skinny denim – no thrills, but a staple for my wardrobe. They are a cotton/polyester/rayon/spandex blend and fit well. The mid-rise is comfortable on my waist and the cropped hem is perfect for spring and summer!
Mink Pink Stripe Faux Wrap Midi Skirt – Cost to keep: $62
Now we’re talking! This wrap skirt is made by Mink Pink, a brand I’m familiar with but have never purchased. The navy and white striped fabric is comprised of 60% cotton, 35% polyester, and 5% elastane, so it’s a bit stretchy and easy to put on despite the side zipper.
I really love the tulip shape of this skirt. I typically steer away from high-low skirt and dress hemlines, but the wrap element works for me.
The couple of pleats in the front also add a nice vintage flair to this skirt. I paired it with the halter top tucked in, but I also think it would be cute paired with a crop top!
Carina Roll Sleeve Blouse – Cost to keep: $69
I was a bit surprised to see a thick long-sleeve tunic in this month’s box, but once I tried it on, I was pleasantly surprised. Made of 60% cotton and 40% nylon, it’s has a linen quality that although wrinkles easy, is also crispy but comfortable on. I’m not one to wear red often, but the shade of the stripes is really sophisticated.
My favorite part of this top is the neck. It’s nicely structured but also has a hidden button to keep the look modest.
Side slit and rolled sleeve to complete!
Olivia Grey Eve Open Shoulder Lace Inset Top – Cost to keep: $74
Sadly, this is my least favorite item this month. It is a polyester/spandex blend but there is only a little stretch. The open shoulder and arms have a pretty black lace inset but it is so wrong for my personal style. There are a relaxed silhouette and dolman sleeves which are nice.
Jack by BB Dakota Mayon Knit Cardigan – Cost to keep: $84
Last this month is a cardigan jacket also by Jack by BB Dakota. It is a cream 100% acrylic knit and seems a little overpriced. It’s comfortable on and as you can see very sheer. I liked it more when I tried it on, but I would really rather prefer to spend on summer clothes right now.
There are side slits and a lot of fabric to this cardigan. It’s nice and roomy and, like the jacket, would be good to wear on chillier summer nights.
Verdict: This month’s Daily Look Elite box is a nice improvement from the last couple of boxes. I was sent a lot of options and found a few wins with the skirt, denim, and printed tunic. The clothing ranged in the $60-80 price range which for the most part seems fair for the quality. Similar to previous months, their website has great marketing and a lot of looks to shop, but sadly a lot of pieces are sold out and unavailable.
