Wantable Style Edit Subscription Box Review – December 2017
This box was sent to us at no cost to review (Check out our review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)
This review is of the Wantable Style Edit, $20 a month, box.
When you sign up, you fill out an extensive style profile. They ask what kind of items you would like to receive along with size, color, style, and price point preferences. Each category is ranked with a like, dislike, or love. There is also a space to leave notes for your stylist. By the end, your stylist should have a very good idea about what you like and don’t like.
Each edit includes 5-6 clothing and accessories items picked for you by your stylist using your style profile. You have 5 days to try everything on and to send what you don’t want to purchase back in the included prepaid envelope. My items are reflective of my style and price preferences, so your Wantable Style Edit may be completely different!

Wantable Style Edit December 2017 Review
This is my first style edit, so let’s see what my stylist picked for me:
Each edit includes a booklet with a note from your stylist and an invoice. This month, my stylist Lindsay sent me 7 clothing items.
And here’s my invoice. If I were to keep the entire box, the $510 total would be discounted $122 (20% off + $20 styling fee deducted). With this discount, each item would cost an average of $55.43.
Wantable also includes a prepaid return envelope for any items I don’t want to keep.
Sable Plaid Top Matinee, beach lunch lounge, Size M – Cost to Keep: $68
I love this plaid. Ivory, blush, and gray tones are perfect for me because I don’t love the super contrasting plaids found on a lot of shirts. This fabric is a soft and flowy rayon with a hint of stretch. I either have to leave the top button unbuttoned or wear a tank to prevent pulling at the bust area buttons, but I’d have done that anyway. And, look at the cute button details on the back! I love that this shirt is long enough to wear with leggings and looks great with denim too. Winner!
Super Skinny Sonoma, Meritage, Size 29 – Cost to Keep: $128
I know the pose is weird but I wanted to show the rise of these jeans. I’d say they are mid-rise which is great for me since I don’t do low-rise. They are comfortable, stretchy, and flattering in the thigh and butt area. I like the ankle length and how narrow the opening at the ankle is. The only problem I have is that they slide down at the waist and sit at my love handle area creating a bulge which isn’t smooth under my tops. So close, but for the price, I think I’ll keep trying to find the perfect fit.
Stripe Lace Long Sleeve Top Aris Black, Spade & Heart Size M – Cost to Keep: $58
I knew when I pulled this top out that it wasn’t really my style. I don’t go for lace often and I don’t like to see my bra straps under my shirts (and I have a hard time with strapless). It did fit and was comfortable. The fabric, including the lace, is soft and stretchy. It would be a good top for someone who likes the mixed-fabric look. I’ll return this top and I’ll be sure to leave feedback for my stylist so she knows why I didn’t like it.
Madison Clean Slim Fit Trouser Navy, W. by Wantable Size 8 – Cost to Keep: $88
These structured trousers are made from a cotton blend with a little bit of spandex that feels smooth and cool. The mid-rise hits at a perfect spot and provides some support in the stomach and waist area. The fit is flattering in the butt and thighs but the cut below the knee doesn’t work for me. The length is not quite right and they have a weird taper. If they were slim at the ankle I think these would be great. Oh, and I didn’t realize they were navy at first (they’re pretty dark) so excuse the black items being paired with them. Sunlight really brings out the truth!
V-Neck Shell Off White, Lauren Helena, Size M – Cost to Keep: $58
I saw a pretty white tank in one of Wantable’s emails and requested it for this month. My stylist including this similar option for me to try. It is a polyester chiffon tank with wide straps, pretty draping, and a ruched detail on the back of the neck. The double layer is so nice because it makes that tank a little less see-through. I really like it but it’s a bit tight around the armpit/bust area which is a problem I commonly encounter with fabrics with no stretch. I may end up requesting this tank in a larger size to see if that fixes the problem.
Hacci Cardigan Navy, W. by Wantable, Size M – Cost to Keep: $65
This cardigan isn’t labeled as dolman in its description, but it definitely is. I said that I don’t like dolman sleeves in my style quiz but I actually don’t hate it. I might need a larger size to get the full effect, but it seems really snuggly and perfect for casual days. The heather navy fabric isn’t quite as soft as I expected but by no means is it scratchy.
Anaelisa Dress Blue, Lucky Brand, Size M – Cost to Keep: $45 (on sale from $99)
This dress is going to be perfect for when spring rolls around. It is a lightweight viscose and has just enough give to make it comfy. It’s lined from the waist down and thick enough that there isn’t any show through. I like that the elastic drawstring waist gives it some shape and actually functions so you can cinch it as tight as you need. The graphic floral pattern looks great in the different shades of royal blue. Plus, it’s on sale! This one’s a keeper for me.
The Verdict: This is such a fun process and I loved that I got to try everything on at home. It is nice to be able to see my own closet while deciding on which pieces to purchase. Just about everything stayed within my style quiz parameters and I found some items that I really like. Since I kept two items I didn’t receive the 20% discount, but my $20 styling fee was applied to my purchases. I made sure to leave feedback for each item when I checked out so hopefully next month will be even better. 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.

Value Breakdown: This box cost $20.00 with free shipping and returns. The total retail value of the items inside was $510. 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 $388 for the whole box. Ultimately, that’s a savings of 24%.
