Frank And Oak Style Plan Tank, Turtleneck, & Booties Review January 2019
When you first sign up for this subscription, you fill out a quick style profile that captures your sizing preferences and your sense of style. (Choose from Casual, Classic, and Creative). Then, you can pick whether you’d like a monthly or a bi-monthly plan and set your budget for each box (under $150 or $150+).
Before your box ships, you get an email inviting you to hop in and preview your order. The page that opens up has about 12 products total on the page. The three products currently set to ship in the order are at the top of the page and marked with green check marks. The top section of the page includes items that have been picked based on your preferences, but recently, Frank and Oak added a “Featured” section at the bottom of the selection page that highlights some new/trending items that you can pick from, as well.
The plan includes three items, which you can curate for yourself or let Frank and Oak choose for you. I decided to do the picking this month and found myself with a lot of cool pieces to choose from. There’s a pinky-rust shade that they were serving me that was honestly SO cool. But I panicked a bit wondering whether I’d wear it a ton. As you’ll see in a moment, I ended up opting for an all-black order. (My color safe zone.) But I’m so excited to have all of these essentials in my closet.
Let’s check ’em out, shall we?
Fluid Muscle Tank in Black, Size Medium – Retail Value $29.50, Member Price $19.50
I’m in LOVE with this cut! It’s so flattering to my broad shoulders and lands just so at my hips. Best of all, the 70% modal, 30% polyester fabric feels like a dream. It’s smooth and lightweight while still perfectly opaque. I like that it has just enough give, too—it’s not so stretchy or flowy that it becomes shapeless or clingy. This top is such a home run!
Long Sleeve Mock Neck Top in Black, Size Medium – Retail Price $49.50, Member Price $39.50
I got this same design in a really great mustard color a few months ago, and I wear it all the time. So when I saw I could snag it in black, I was all in. This top is made from 57% cotton, 38% modal, 5% spandex fabric that hugs my body without being stifling or stuffy. It’s the perfect top for “winterizing” my jumpsuit and overalls collection—the black matches even the brightest colors and patterns, and the fit won’t feel bulky.
Also, it’s perfect for attaining that coveted Steve Jobs chic. Just imagine the latest iPhone/iPad/iWhatever on the screen behind me!
The Palace Chelsea Boot in Black, Size 8 – Retail Value $165.00, Member Price $140.00
A few months ago, I realized that Frank and Oak offered shoes—minimalist, go-with-everything, high-quality shoes. I was instantly eager to try a pair. When I saw these black Beatle boots appear among my options for this month, I thought, “Hey, why not?” I have a lot of heeled boots in my closet, but no flat ones and this Italian leather pair seemed like something worth splurging on. After all, if they fit well, they’re simple enough that they should see me through many a season and trend. (If you haven’t noticed, this is part of Frank and Oak’s overall “sustainable” approach—their understated products are designed to last you both aesthetically and materials-wise season after season.)
The beauty of these shoes is that they’re made from real leather (and non-slip rubber soles). But that also makes them quite stiff right out of the box. I have a really high arch, meaning it wasn’t the easiest process wriggling my feet into these boots. (There are no zippers or anything—just a sturdy elastic stretch panel on the ankle of each shoe.) At first I was a little worried that the fit would be an issue, but I’ve been wearing them around and do feel them conforming to my feet slowly but surely. For now, they probably won’t be the shoes that I wear on long walks, but something tells me that they’re only going to get better with wear.
Also, look how freakin’ cute they are!!! I feel extremely cool in these mod little numbers. They don’t go up too high, but they aren’t too short, and the pointed toes make my feet feel long and graceful. They’re downright groovy, don’t you think?
Verdict: Frank and Oak is one of my favorite clothing subscriptions of all time. The price points for some of the items are on the higher side (the boots, for example), but I feel like members get plenty of bang for their buck. I often find I end up donating a lot of the products I get from less expensive subscriptions a few months later—they wear down, or I get tired of whatever trend I bought them to follow. Not so with literally ANY Frank and Oak piece I’ve received so far. I don’t have a ton of money to spend on clothes each month, so I like knowing that what I do spend my money on is going to last. Frank and Oak pieces wear so well, wash so well, are comfortable, fit me great, and are simple enough that they’ll last me well into next season (and the one after that, and the one after that, and so on). And the fact that Frank and Oak is on a mission to minimize their products’ impact on the planet means a lot to me as a consumer.
To Wrap Up:

That said, you can still follow the product links above to shop these items for yourself from their site catalog!

Value Breakdown: The retail price for the three items I received this month is $244.00. But the member price drops that cost down to $199.00. If I decide to return all the items, I will pay the $25 styling fee and will be refunded the remaining amount, but I can keep any one item at the discounted price and no styling fee will be charged.
