Universal Standard has new mystery boxes available now - Geo Trios! (Thanks for the heads up, Marina!)

From the West to the Northeast and the South to the Midwest, we’re pooling our best-selling pieces from each region and packing them into 3-piece trios for an amazing value. You won’t know the pieces, but come on… who doesn’t love a surprise?!

We may all be scattered across different regions, but we can still take a moment to come together through style (and a little fun).

FYI - these sell out quickly so make sure to grab any box you want quickly!

The Box: Universal Standard Geo Trio Box

The Cost: $95-$145

The Products: Universal Standard offers sizes from 00-40. Available in the following categories: Premium Jersey (includes dresses and tops) and Luxe Essentials (includes dresses, bottoms and/or tops.)

Good to know:

Luxe Essentials box: limit one per customer, regardless of region

Luxe Essentials boxes include dresses, bottoms and/or tops. If your top and bottom size differ, we suggest purchasing the Premium Jersey box

Universal Standard FAQs:

Is this like Mystery Box?

Similar, but different! While packing your Geo Trio Box, we will only pull best-selling pieces from across the country. You’ll get 3 out of 15 possible best sellers from the pool of premium jersey or luxe essential options. We’re calling it more of a surprise, and less of a mystery.

Will I get any products that I already own?

Since we’re only pulling from best sellers, there is a chance that items may repeat from your past purchases with US. We’re only pulling prime staple pieces so, if an item does repeat, you may even find your closet has been craving a backup.

Will I get an “outfit?”

We’ll be packing some dresses (hello, instant outfit), but cannot guarantee your Geo Trio Box will be a complete outfit. We can, however, guarantee each piece will easily integrate into your weekly wardrobe rotation.

Can I request any product to go in my trio?

Unfortunately we can’t take any requests this time.

What should I do if I’m in between sizes?

We recommend you go with the size you most often purchase, and definitely check out our size chart to be sure you’re opting into the right Universal Standard size.

Can I return any items in my Geo Trio box?

Unfortunately all items are final sale and not eligible for returns or exchanges.

 

Are you going to grab a mystery box? Want to see it reviewed?

I ordered the Midwest box in S (I’m between S and M and have found better chance of fit with the S). Received the box Friday and was super disappointed. Received the denim shirt dress, the Michelle Cupro shirt dress in black (which is incredibly unflattering on me), and a very-high-rise black denim button down skirt. I’ll be selling all items. I’m not much for skirts or dresses these days. I expected to get a dress or skirt in the box and was open to trying one but I wasn’t expecting all 3 items to be that. Feels like a bait and switch. Just so disappointing and a huge waste of money. It’s the gamble though and I had decent luck with the mystery box, so maybe I’ll do that again next year. But I agree with the above comment that I wish they would’ve just said they were trying to unload dresses.

I was a little disappointed they didn’t just acknowledge they were trying to unload dresses. I probably would not have bought if they had. I don’t wear dresses much. The slip dress is black fabric. Will probably wear that the most. I’m planning to chop off the denim dress and make a tunic. I saw one review where person received faux leather skirt instead. I should probably give up on mystery boxes but I love them!

I was so excited about the GeoTrio. I loved the MSA review from the Mystery Box and ordered the West Jersey Trio and received the Misa Jersey Dress, Cap Sleeve Tee, and the Long Sleeve V-neck Geneva Dress. I also ordered the Luxe NE box and received the Denim Shirt Dress, Denim button front skirt, and the slip dress. I was actually really bummed with the items I received. The only item in the bunch I would have chosen is the Cap Sleeve Tee. Two of the items are better suited for fall and winter, not the current season. I Should have taken the money I spent and bought the two items I really wanted at full price. Lesson learned! I do love the quality and will always be a US fan but I don’t see myself buying another mystery type box.

I got a VERY similar lineup in my 2xs West boxes. (Just got the a-line faux leather skirt instead of the slip dress–that dress would have been great!) I’ll probably sell most of it, but the denim skirt and the long-sleeve Geneva were surprising winners. Not a bad haul, especially if I can sell a few pieces.

I received Premium Jersey West box today and was very happy and I’d like to note:
– I got a survey link after I ordered but it didn’t work
– I got colors in a color family that was in my favorites though not necessarily colors in favorites
– I did not get any specific pieces from my tagged favorites even though most are jersey
– I selected West because I wanted short sleeves as it has been 100 degrees here this week.

I received:
1. MISA dress in black
2. Cap Sleeve top in black
3. Geneva dress in beet red (like a dark magenta – gorgeous color)

RV $300

I received the same Geneva dress. No clue how to style it. Not sure about the ruching on the side. It kind of bubble out.

That sounds like the perfect box. I ordered a South jersey box but haven’t received it yet. I hope I get a cap sleeve T!

I received my luxe essentials NE today. Quick shipping! A black slip dress, denim shirt dress, and a snap front black denim skirt. Everything fits well and is good quality. What’s not to love about a dress with pockets

I ordered the same box so I expect the same items and not thrilled. The pic on the luxe NE showed the denim jacket so I was hoping for that. I just bought the denim skirt recently and like it, but I don’t need two. Is the slip dress the one that’s vegan leather? It’s cute but I don’t think I’d ever wear it.

I ordered the same luxe NE and received the exact items as you! Kind of wish they have higher value items in there. The RV is 295

I ordered Midwest and Pacific Northwest. All 6 items were in the same box so no way to know which was which.

I got
2 long sleeve T Rex shirts in Black, one of them V Neck
2 Geneva dresses red and navy
1 t-shirt dress in Black
1 Halie dress in Berry

It was ok. I’m one those people who only wears black and even though I would wear other colors I just have a mental block about it. I’ll be able to move the other items, so that’s fine. I like the black items a lot and I’m pleased that half of my order will be wearable, it’s definitely a risk to order a mystery box with my personal restrictions.

So disappointed in my box. I knew I was taking a gamble because it was final sale, but it just sucked after spending $145 not to get a single item I liked. Now I’m going to have to try and re-sell everything. I got the Luxe West box and received a black denim shirt dress, a button front blue denim shirt, and a fake leather skirt. None of these items I would wear. So pissed.

Size 2XS perchance? I’m looking for the fake leather skirt.

Sorry if this posts twice. There are no questionnaires this time. That was for the mystery box, where Universal Standard sent a broader selection of pieces and tried to match buyers’ preferences. The geo trios are selected from among regional bestsellers, but they are not personalized. Hope that helps.

Huh. I did get a questionnaire, maybe early buyers got the same email as they did when they sent mystery boxes, then they caught their error

The questionnaire was for mystery boxes, where Universal Standard attempted to take buyers’ preferences into account. There is no questionnaire this time. Instead, they are selecting three pieces from among their bestsellers for your region. Hope that helps.

There was a survey for the last mystery boxes, but I don’t think there’s one for these. My understanding is that we get 3 items of 15 bestsellers. A couple reviews I found online show 2 dresses (1a Geneva) and a tee Rex. I probably should not have purchased because I prefer petite sizes in their dresses. Oops, looks like a couple of size small dresses will soon be available on an auction site.

You don’t get to pick, but they do send you a questionnaire about what colors you prefer and which you don’t.

I signed up for their email list after the last Mystery Box review and ended up getting a $50 off $50 or more code and buying a long-sleeve exercise tee for literally $1. So I’m glad I didn’t have to wait until next year for another one of their Mystery Boxes. I ordered the Premium Jersey Midwest. I love the sizing philosophy and I love their aesthetic, so this is a win for me.

I received the same $50 coupon. Thought there might be a catch but nope received a free t-shirt. I prefer a little less stretch and a little more drape so I’m glad it was free.

Just a warning, their shipping is really slow. The last mystery box I got took almost a month from order, and I’m currently waiting for a tracking number from an order I placed 8 days ago.

I bought 2 of these mystery boxes dyi, so the slow shipping is ultimately worth it to me, just so you know what you’re getting into. It’ll likely be a long wait.

I’ve always wanted to try this but I’m super confused about the sizing. All I see is a “if you usually order size X, then order a size Y, which isn’t very helpful as other brands differ in their sizing lot. I’m surprised there aren’t any measurements that go by inches but I can’t find anything.

Can anyone give me some advice based on their experience? I’m 5’7” 122 lb. 36d chest and 28” waist.

Let me modify the above question since I found the chart listing inches but am now even more confused!!

For bust, it says their size 3xs fits 33-34”(Traditional size 2-4). And their 2xs fits 38-40” (traditional Size 6-8). What happened to 36”??

I would say you are either a 2XS or 3XS. I’m a traditional size 6-8, 29″ waist and 36B chest, and the 2XS pants are a tiny bit tight on me, but fine. The tops are a tiny big loose, but again the fit is pretty good. The 2XS athleisure pants I have got from them have all had a 28″ waist, but with stretch. I also got a 2XS tank dress which is very figure hugging, and I could have possibly sized up…

I wear petite sizes so would be afraid I’d get a midi that would fit like a maxi. Also, I live in Texas and the picture for the South features a coat and a heavier long sleeve dress (got it in last MB). As I’ve already put up my winter clothes a month ago, I need summer items.
Love US quality though and their sizing fits me perfectly.

I think this should be included in the description so people aren’t disappointed when part of their order gets canceled or they don’t read about sizes.

Love their stuff, tried them for the first time and with their last Mystery Box sale and got hooked. They email about great sales too, for example last weekend they sent me a $75 off $75 coupon. I got a dress I have been eyeing for $20 and got one that has the Fit Liberty so I can exchange as I lose weight over the next year. Got the email about these boxes this morning and got 2 of the basic boxes one from
Midwest and the other South. And just now went back and got a Luxe box for Midwest. I highly recommend if you like to fill your closet with high quality basics and have the disposable income right now. These boxes are a great way to try them out.

My Luxe Midwest box has the Hannah denim shirt dress in Indigo, Ang Denim Button Down denim skirt in Black and Rhea Cupro Shirt Dress in Black.
Of note, the items I received accurately reflect the colors I selected on the survey that I like/ didn’t like.

Jennifer, I saw someone posted about that $75 Easter coupon and contacted their CS since I didn’t get one. Their answer was that that was a target demographic and not offered to everyone. That made me sad, but I’m hoping other discounts are coming to other people. This mystery bag might be worth getting, but I bet there will be a Geneva dress in every bag, and I already have two.

I got my box today and, unlike previous mystery boxes, I’m really happy with the mid-west Geo Trio! I got a v-neck Geneva dress ($120) in navy, a long sleeve T-rex ($60) in black, and a Hailey t-shirt dress ($70) in red. All are current items and all are very wearable.
