Trunk Club Subscription Box Review – May 2019
Trunk Club is a clothing styling service for both men and women. Subscribers work closely with their stylist to find a selection of pieces to try on at home, and they receive a trunk shortly thereafter. Trunks can be ordered as often as you like, so you can try it once, or have a trunk sent to you quarterly, monthly, or even more frequently!
My Subscription Addiction paid for this box. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

Trunk Club Plus Clothing May 2019 Review
So first, a little more about how Trunk Club works. When I signed up, I took a pretty lengthy style questionnaire online. Then I was matched with a stylist who asked me even more about what I like and what I was looking for via an online chat. Based on this information, she selected several items for me to try on at home. She then sent me a link to preview all my items! There is also an option to allow your stylist to send a few surprise pieces.
This packet was included in my trunk.
The front of the enclosed booklet now has instructions!
Inside is a note from my stylist.
This is my invoice. It lists the items I was sent and the cost to keep each item. My $25 styling fee will be deducted from anything I decide to keep.
These items were also in the packet. When I’ve finished repackaging the items I don’t want to keep in the box, I just put this return label on it and use the tape straps to tape it back up! So convenient!
Pattern Mix Peasant Top by Vince Camuto – Cost to keep $99 (not currently available on nordrstrom.com)
If I were my stylist, this is exactly the type of top I would choose for me. It’s totally my style – boho, natural fibers, peasant style, loose and billowy. I don’t know why, though, but I am not really feeling it. I think I wish the pattern was a little more interesting. This is a really pretty top, though.
Lolita Skinny Jeans by Lucky Brand – Cost to keep $79.50
These are basically my ideal skinny jeans! They fit well and are supportive, but have a good stretch to them when I move. The length is perfect, and the dark wash is my favorite. Lucky Brand jeans also are high quality in my experience. They are durable and keep their color for a long time.
Bird Print Split Neck Top by Daniel Rainn – Cost to keep $79 (not currently available on nordrstrom.com)
I absolutely love this chiffon top! The black ribbon tie and trim at the neckline make it look so stylish and elegant! The sheer sleeves also make it perfect for a more dressy summer look. I also love the small print in brown tones. And last but never least, I really like the way it looks on me!
Kelly Print Peasant Top by Lucky Brand – Cost to keep $79.50 (currently on sale for $47.40!)
I love pretty much everything from Lucky Brand, and this rayon top is a good example of why. It definitely has the boho look I adore, and as a bonus, this is an unusual color scheme. I love the green and brown pattern! The open neckline is perfect for me, and the tasseled tie is a cute and stylish detail. I love it! I can see myself wearing this a lot this summer.
Metallic Stripe Floral Peasant Top by Caslon – Cost to keep $69 (not currently available on nordrstrom.com)
This cotton/rayon blend top is actually a little too heavy for summer here in Georgia. It was kind of uncomfortable even to just wear outside to model it. I love the print and the colors! The style is also perfect for me, and I like the way it looks on me. I am just not shopping for warm tops right now.
Moss Crepe Wide Leg Crop Jumpsuit by Vince Camuto – Cost to keep $138
I usually hate jumpsuits and rompers on myself, but this one’s pretty cute! It’s a polyester crepe with a little spandex for stretch. I like the tie at the waist, too. I don’t tend to wear sleeveless garments, either, but since this is black I can wear almost any kind of layer over it. A summer kimono would look awesome with this!
Lofty Windowpane Ruana by Echo – Cost to keep $49
Full disclosure, I had never heard of a ruana before, but it turned out to be my favorite item in the box this month! It’s a cotton/poly blend with just a touch of silk, and look at that vibrant shade of blue! I just love the color! The windowpane texture and frayed edges give it extra yet subtle style. This is such a lightweight piece – I think it may be the answer to all my sleeveless summer garments!
Shinjuku Maxi Dress by City Chic – Cost to keep $119
It’s pretty amazing what they can do with polyester these days. This dress is 100% polyester, but it has a silky feel. It is fully lined, which makes it a bit heavier than I like for summer, but it is definitely high quality and well constructed. The pattern is also just gorgeous! It definitely has that East meets West look to it. Unfortunately, I don’t really think it does anything for my figure.
The Verdict: I really enjoy my Trunk Club subscription! This month I got a couple of misses, but the majority of the pieces were fantastic! I particularly love the Lucky Jeans, the Daniel Rainn top, and my new ruana! The pieces from Trunk Club tend to run a little higher in price than some other styling boxes, but that makes sense since they carry high-end brands. Plus it is fun to have so many different pieces to try!

The cost of each item is listed alongside it above, but if I choose to keep anything, the $25 cost of the box would also be applied to the purchase.
