This review is of the Wantable Style Edit, $20 a month, box.
When I signed up for Style Edit, I took a very extensive profile quiz. It was exciting to see the various questions and visual outfits I could like, love, or dislike. They asked what categories I wanted to receive (or not receive), along with the occasions I typically dress for (ie work, night out, etc). I chose color and price preferences as well. I completed my profile with high hopes that my stylist would be able to understand my sense of style.
My items are reflective of my style and price preferences, so your Wantable Style Edit may be completely different!

Each box arrives with a booklet that includes a note from your stylist, along with an invoice and return label. This month, my stylist, Catherine sent seven pieces of transitional clothing.
And here's my invoice. If I were to keep the entire box, the $493.00 total would be discounted $118.60 (20% off + $20 styling fee deducted). With this discount, each item would cost an average of $53.49.
Wantable also includes a USPS return bag for anything I decide to return.
Let's take a look at what I got!
Spade & Heart Embroidered Sleeve Top, size S - Cost to keep: $68
I was immediately drawn to this black top, thanks to the embroidered fluttered sleeves. It is made of 100% rayon and has a crepe-like texture throughout. It fits a little big but has a cool crossed front that is shown buttoned (but can be worn open). The embroidery is white and a nice contrast. I like the simple floral boho design; this detail validates the $68 price tag.
Articles of Society Sarah Release Hem Jeans, size 27 - Cost to keep: $84
Ah, a denim brand I have come to love thanks to Trunk Club! This is the first brand of denim I've owned that consistently fits well and is priced great compared to the quality. This particular pair is a black cotton/polyester/spandex blend and has a nice stretch to it. There's also a sheen to the jean's finish, which looks reminiscent of leather. Overall they fit well, but the release hem fits a little long for me personally (I'm 5'4"). They are very on-trend and right up my alley!
W. by Wantable Slub Scoop Back V-Neck Top, size S - Cost to keep: $58
I've been getting a lot of oversized basics in recent clothing subscription boxes. I dress casually every day, so I welcome them. 🙂 This olive green top is exclusive to Wantable, made in the USA, and is 100% cotton. I have narrow shoulders so the scoop neck combined with a v-neck back makes this a bit big for me. Even though the top is supposed to have a relaxed and oversized fit, I feel like sizing down might make this item a total winner. I love the rounded and slit hem and long sleeves for Fall.

Meritage Super Skinny Ankle Boathouse Jeans, size 27 - Cost to keep: $128
The second bottoms this month are also jeans, which I always welcome! And unlike a lot of boxes I received throughout the summer, this pair has no distressing, aside from a slight fade. This is a quality pair of denim and worth the $100+ price tag. Although they are also a cotton/polyester/spandex blend, they are super structured and thick. Aside from a little stretch, I would have guessed they were 100% cotton. I'm happy with these classic skinny jeans!
Lush Smocking Off The Shoulder Peasant Tunic, size S - Cost to keep: $32
Next up is this tropical printed off-the-shoulder tunic. I usually do not gravitate towards big tropical prints, or off-the-shoulder for the matter, but I really like this top. The mustard, burgundy, blue, and white color scheme is really pretty in person and I really like the drop waist.
The smocked neckline can also be work on the shoulders if bear shoulders aren't your thing. The top is also made from a crepe-textured 100% rayon like the black top above, so there's a nice slinkiness to it.
And the sleeve gathers at the cuff with matching ties!
I'm a super fan of tented silhouettes so this top is a clear winner.
Rokoko Print Button Down Dress, size S - Cost to keep: $58
Although a bit late for October, this spaghetti-strapped dress is made of 100% and has a nice autumnal floral print. There's a slight silky hand-feel but the straight silhouette fits more structured.
I really like the buttoned front and that the straps are adjustable. There's definitely a casual, grunge vibe and I could image layering a longer sleeved top underneath to transition into Fall!
The midi length has side slits which still leaves the skirt with a modest look. If it were the summertime, I would definitely feel more inclined to keep this, but I more motivated to purchase thicker fabrics, longer sleeves, and boots right now!
W. by Wantable Hacci Cardigan, size S - Cost to keep: $65
Another option is to layer a cardigan over the skirt! This Wantable-exclusive black cardigan is a rayon/polyester/spandex blend is lightweight. It's another wardrobe staple, complete with dolman sleeves and rounded opening. It's nice, but definitely not worth it to me for the $65 price tag.
Verdict: This month’s Wantable Style Edit was good, but did not wow me. My stylist's objective was to send transitional pieces and I feel the seven items are nice options for my personal style. The price points are pretty balanced but I do wish there was a least one more option below $50.
For $20 a month (which also includes free shipping and returns), Wantable Style Edit is a low-risk way of shopping for clothes in the comfort of your home. It’s interesting that Wantable switches to a different stylist each month, but I’m OK with it and excited to see who and what’s in store next month!

Value Breakdown: This box cost $20.00 with free shipping. The total retail value of the items inside was $493.00. The cost of each item is listed alongside it above, but if I choose to keep at least 5 items, I get a 20% discount. The $20.00 cost of the box would also be applied to the purchase, meaning I’d end up spending $374.40 for the whole box. Ultimately, that’s a savings of about 24%.
