Daily Look Elite Box Subscription Review + Coupon – August 2018
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).

Daily Look Elite Box August 2018 Review
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.
I also received a packing slip that lists each item and the price it would cost to keep each. I received a total of 9 items this month.
I also received a prepaid return label, bag, 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.
Sidney Cross Knit Top – Cost to Keep: $54
I like cross front tops in this style, but they typically all have the same issue for me: the front is way too short. Combine that with a see-through fabric that requires a camisole underneath, and this top was just a miss for me. I do like the color – I don’t own any mint clothing, but the fit and style just aren’t for me.
J Brand Liza Mid Rise Culotte – Cost to Keep: $198
These jeans are fantastic. I have been adoring the raw edge trend this season, and you could really tell the quality in the construction. They were a little snug in the thighs, and the culotte length is still a little out of my comfort zone but these were a fun item to get!
Front Side Tie Sweater – Cost to Keep: $78
Now, this sweater is just my style. I wear a lot of grey, the fabric is really soft, and the fit is perfection, complete with sleeves that are long enough for my arms. The front tie detail is different, simple, and sewn in place so it’s also no-maintenance. Now if this super hot weather can get started on acting more like Fall!
Velvet by Graham & Spencer Cold Shoulder Top – Cost to Keep: $168
This top is also very nice, though the fit was just off enough I’m not sure I’d wear it much. I think it photographed well, but in person, it felt a little formless and slightly frumpy. Maybe the length of the sleeves hit in a weird place, too, though I do like the cold shoulder detail. I really wanted to love this top, but maybe a size down would have worked better for me.
Rohn Sleeveless Floral Blouse with Tie – Cost to Keep: $38
I love the concept and style of this top, but it was too tight on top. Oddly enough, like I needed the previous top sized down, this top could have used a size up.
Sandy S/S Tie Sleeve Top – Cost to Keep: $69
As I said earlier, I like the cold shoulder trend. This shirt, however, was just uncomfortable – I didn’t care for the fabric at all. It was 100% rayon, and I knew it wouldn’t wash easily, either. This went back.
Geena Striped Popover Top – Cost to Keep: $68
This top isn’t bad… I like the print, but I think I need to include a note to my stylist to please not include any see-through fabrics. I just don’t like having to need to wear a camisole under a top because I find it uncomfortable and it generally affects the way the top shirt drapes. I almost kept this, but I just don’t LOVE love it.
Waverly Hooded Lightweight Anorak Jacket – Cost to Keep: $98
This JACKET! This is the winning piece of this box for me because it’s gorgeous and fits me perfectly. It’s a lightweight fabric, so I’ll get the most wear during fall before it gets too cold. The proportions are perfect for me, the sleeves are long enough and have tabs to keep them rolled up. There are snap-closed pockets at the hips, and the waist has a string to make the waistline more fitted to your liking. The color is a perfect, easy neutral that will go with anything. Love!
Cross Back Sleeveless A-Line Dress – Cost to Keep: $68
This dress is also fabulous. The A-line is flattering and the fabric is stretchy, which is the best part. The black and navy floral print is very pretty, too. I can see this being perfect for Summer weddings!
Verdict: This was my second Daily Look Elite box, and I am generally pleased with it, though a little bummed with the sizing issues. Although, sizing issues can be common in the first couple boxes of a clothing subscription anyway. The items ranged from being totally me that I already owned something similar, to pushing me out of my comfort zone. The quality of each item was great, too.
To Wrap Up:
Can I still get this box if I sign up today? You can sign up for your first month’s box now, but your selections will look different than mine.
Value Breakdown: For $40 a month, I received nine styles that came to $839 in retail value. I can keep or return any of the pieces with free shipping both ways! If I do keep anything, the $40 styling fee will be deducted from my order.
