Wantable Style Edit Plus Clothing Review – September 2018

wantable style edit september 2018 box

Wantable Style Edit has been a major player in the subscription styling service market for years now, and I have been really enjoying their plus size styling service! In addition to Wantable Style Edit for Women, Wantable also offers Women and Men’s Fitness boxes.

Wantable Fitness Edit has been around for years, but they just announced in December that they were expanding to include plus sizes, and I could not be more excited! I signed up right away! In addition to Wantable Fitness Edit for Women and Men, Wantable also offers a Women Style Edit Clothing box.

Wantable Style Edit Plus Clothing September 2018 Review

When I signed up for this service, I took a pretty lengthy quiz in which I indicated my price, size and style preferences. I would expect what I receive to be reflective of my tastes, and for these boxes to vary quite a bit from subscriber to subscriber. There is also a note from my stylist, Scott. It explains why he chose the items he picked for me.

This is the invoice of the items they sent me this month. On the right, it shows my cost to keep each item. The total comes to $478. If I keep everything, I get 20% off, plus I get my $20 styling fee deducted. That means a potential discount of $115.60. That’s a deep discount!

Wantable now does exchanges, hooray! They included this card with details about the new service.

wantable style edit september 2018 floral

Winter Floral Top by Kensie – Cost to Keep $69

I think the word “winter” here refers to the type of floral print – otherwise, I can’t think of anything winter about this chiffon, semi-sheer, short sleeved top! Wantable has a feature called the “Stream” where they showcase some of the items they are currently sending out in their styling boxes, and if you see something you like, you can request it in your next box. This was something I requested from the Stream, and I couldn’t be happier with it! I chose it because I do love the colors and print, and I am very happy with the way the colors and print look in real life. I am also very happy with the fit, and the neckline is cool, too! This is a keeper!

wantable style edit september 2018 pants

Reese Ankle Straight Leg Pant by Kut from the Kloth – Cost to Keep $89

I think the “it” item for this fall must be a solid pair of heavy cotton olive utility or cargo pants because every styling service I subscribe to has sent me at least one so far. These are really cute, and I usually love everything from Kut from the Kloth, but these are just too tight. It’s a shame because they are a great length!

wantable style edit september 2018 cardigan

Drawstring Cardigan by W. by Wantable – Cost to Keep $69

I actually already have this exact cardigan in black except it was made by Kiyonna. I am wondering if this is meant to be an exact copy, actually, because they are strikingly similar. This is a cotton knit, and I think it is just a bit heavier than the same cardigan by Kiyonna. The fit on this is not great; I feel like it’s almost a little too big on me. This will also need to go back, unfortunately.

wantable style edit september 2018 tee

Striped V-Neck Boyfriend Tee by Love & Legend – Cost to Keep $36

I’m not totally sure, I might be missing something, but I think Wantable sent me this exact same tee a few months ago, which I kept. It is super cute! It’s pretty basic, in the standard cotton weight for tees. I like the fit and cut a lot, which is probably why I kept it the first time around.

Giza Top by Tart Collections – Cost to Keep $68

This top just looks terrible on me. I’m sorry I can’t put a more positive spin on it, but it’s just not working. Aside from being too long and made from a clingy synthetic blend, it has a weird built-in bra. Why? There’s really no danger of the straps showing from my regular bra. This is definitely going back.

Intermingle Cross Front Long Sleeve Top by W. by Wantable – Cost to Keep $69

I am starting to get some pieces for fall, but it’s still 90 degrees here. I am not ready for this kind of heavy knit. I also don’t really think this is very flattering on me. It’s too long and a little too big also.

Marley Fray Hem Super Skinny by Vigoss – Cost to Keep $78

While it was technically possible to get these jeans onto my body, the “super skinny” moniker is no joke in this case. I feel like when I model clothes that are too tight, even though it is unflattering, it helps you to understand whether a styling service is paying attention to my size and the fit of the clothing they are sending out. It’s supposed to be a good thing. But, even I have my limits. These were almost painful. It’s too bad, again, because they are a good length for me, and I like the wash a lot. Unfortunately, these will have to go back as well.

The Verdict: I really love my Wantable Style Edit! Having said that, this month was really unlucky for me. I say unlucky because I feel like sometimes that’s all it really boils down to. They did send me a duplicate of a tee they sent previously, but I think the other picks were just not a good match for me. I do love the floral Kensie top, though! I feel like, in terms of cost and value, Wantable sends a good mix of inexpensive and pricier pieces. I also love that they send seven pieces, it’s so fun!

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? Wantable curates its boxes based on each individual’s preferences as well as what’s available. What you get might not be the same as what I got, but you also might get something that fits your style and body even better than the looks above! Sign up and see what they choose for you!

Value Breakdown: This box cost $20.00 with free shipping and returns. The total retail value of the items inside was $478.00. 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 would end up spending $362.40 for the whole box. Ultimately, that is a savings of about 24%.  The average price per piece is $68.29.

  1. I don’t see the coupon for Wantable anywhere?

  2. I thought the gray sweater looked good too…although I understand you think it’s too long on you but I’m all into tunics right now so I liked the length

    • Thanks LorieLynn!

  3. Lovin the grey one although I feel you. It is still 99 here in Vegas and although the boss is freezing me out with the air conditioner it is hard to get dressed in the morning.

    • Thanks Michelle! Yeah I cannot wait for this weather to cool off!
