Wantable Style Edit Subscription Box Review – January 2019
This review is of the Wantable Style Edit, $20 a month, box.
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.)
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 of what you like and don’t like.
Each edit includes 5-7 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 January 2019 Review
My stylist was able to include 4 of my requested items plus a few other things she thought would fit well with my current wardrobe. Let’s see what she sent!
Wantable recently rebranded and updated their look. They refreshed the logo design and added this little sleeve to hold the invoice, return bag, and any extra info. This month they also included some information about the Fitness Edit side of their service.
The info booklet includes a note from your stylist and the invoice. This month, Tatjana sent me 6 clothing items and 1 accessory.
And here’s my invoice. If I were to keep the entire box, the $446 total would be discounted $109.20 (20% off + $20 styling fee deducted) for a total of $336.80. With this discount, each item would cost an average of $48.11.
Wantable also includes a prepaid return envelope to send back any items I don’t want to keep.
W. by Wantable, Waffle V-Neck Drop Shoulder Top in Mocha, M – Cost to Keep $58 (Return)
I sent this back and now I’m totally regretting it! 🙁 The waffle knit material is 60% rayon, 35% polyester, and 5% spandex and the perfect weight to be warm and cozy but not stuffy. I love the way the black and tan thread is woven together creating a nice texture. The drop shoulders and split hem give it a casual vibe and it looks great thrown on with a pair of jeans. This was one of the items I requested from the Stream, which has proven very successful.
Kut from the Kloth, Mia High Waist Skinny in Premier Wash, 6 – Cost to Keep $89 (Keep)
Now, I did love these and kept them. 🙂 I recently purged my jean collection and was in need of a solid dark wash skinny. These are perfect as my everyday jean. The denim is made of 91% cotton and 7% polyester with 2% elastane for comfortable stretch. They’re nice and thick with a soft feel and are totally matte. I love, love, love the high waist since it smooths out my midsection and covers my whole butt. These are another of my requested items from the Stream.
Design History, Mixed Media Sweater in Bordeaux/White, M – Cost to Keep $68 (Return)
Another Stream request of mine…this one was more of a whim since it’s outside of my normal style. I love the rich red color and the mid-weight knit, which is 70% acrylic, 20% wool, and 10% nylon. The white shirt part, which is just a panel of fabric attached at the bottom, is 97% cotton and 3% lycra. I think the split cuff on the sleeve is interesting, but I’m not sure I love it. I really like the idea of this top and the ease of achieving the layered look, but I wish the white part carried over to another part of the top. Maybe if it was peeking out from the split cuff of the sleeve, it would look a little more cohesive.
1 State, L/S Open Neck Rushed Rib-Knit Top in Rich Black, M – Cost to Keep $59 (Return)
I pretty much knew I wouldn’t like this top when I pulled it out of the box. It’s a very thin, ribbed rayon/spandex material that is very form fitting. The middle of the bust and armpit area(?) are ruched and shape the open neckline. I’ve gravitated away from very open necklines like this, so this just isn’t for me. I do like that it can be tucked in and layered easily. If it had been a turtleneck, it might have been perfect.
Meritage, High Waisted Button Fly Skinny in Galvez Wash, 28 – Cost to Keep $88 (Return)
Oh, I love Meritage jeans so much. The only reason I sent these back is that I already have a pair of skinny grey jeans similar to these. The button-fly, high waist is supportive and comfortable and the material is thick and soft. These are ankle length and look cute with flats, sandals, booties, and even heels. I’m kinda regretting not keeping them, but I wanted the other items I kept more.
Argento Vivo, Two Tone Reversible Huggie Hoop – Cost to Keep $42 (Keep)
The accessory my stylist included this month is another one of my requested items. I don’t have any simple, small hoops and I love the look of huggie style earrings, so I wanted to try them. The great thing about this pair is that they are basically 2 in 1 with gold on one side and silver on the other. The hinge style closure creates a streamlined look when worn and makes putting them on easy (from the front or back of the lobe). They are made of Sterling Silver, and I’m assuming plated on the gold side, so they’re fine for my sensitive skin.
Z Supply, Side Wrap Tee in White, M – Cost to Keep $42 (Return)
My last item is this super soft knotted tee. I really like Z Supply shirts because they are so soft and drapey. Unfortunately, this one just didn’t quite sit right on my body. The knot is a cool detail, but I think it would have looked better if it hit at my natural waist instead of my navel. The drop shoulder effect isn’t my favorite here either; it visually pulls me down.
The Verdict: My stylist did a really nice job of selecting items for my Wantable Style Edit this month! I’m happy she was able to include 4 of my requested items plus a few other basics to try. Making choices was tough this month since I liked so many of them! I’m even feeling ‘not buyer’s’ remorse (didn’t know that was a thing, did ya?) for sending the waffle knit top back. Since I’m keeping 2 items, I don’t receive the 20% discount, but my $20 styling fee will be applied to my purchase. So the total for the 2 items is $111. For $20 a month (which also includes free shipping and returns), Wantable Style Edit is a fun and convenient way for me to shop for clothes.
