Is Stitch Fix right for you?

Stitch Fix ($20 styling fee) is a personal styling service for women, men, and kids, too! For a small fee, they’ll match you with new, trend-savvy clothing that fits your size, style, and budget. (That includes maternity clothes and petite and plus-size clothing!) Return whatever you don’t like, and keep what you do. It’s that simple! The $20 fee goes towards anything you keep, too.

We recommend taking the style quiz to get a feel for the service and some types of styles they offer before you sign up (there’s no obligation to schedule a Fix until you’re ready).

 


Our Review

We've reviewed over 100 different boxes from Stitch Fix. Here's our take:

What We Love

  • Stitch Fix is convenient—it’s a time-saver for busy fashion lovers, & an easy solution for folks who don’t like to shop.

  • Your stylist picks pieces based on the budget, size, & style preferences you choose.

  • Set your own schedule: You can get a “Fix” every month, or as a one-off when you need it.

What You Should Know

  • We get the best Fixes when we give our stylist LOTS of information about what we’re looking for. (Submitting a Pinterest board of looks you like is a great way to do this!)

  • To help Stitch Fix hone in on your specific style faster, we recommend requesting the same stylist for each Fix you order.

  • Keep nothing, & you’ll eat that $20 styling fee. Keep one or more pieces, & the $20 goes towards your purchase. Keep everything, & you’ll get 25% off!

  • Stitch Fix does not give you a preview of the items they have selected for you before they ship (as some other personal styling services do).

We Recommend Stitch Fix If

  • You love shopping, but don’t have the time.

  • You dislike shopping, & need help building a wardrobe.

  • You want to broaden your options with new brands or styles you haven’t considered before.

    Stitch Fix FAQ

      What is Stitch Fix & how does it work?

    • Stitch Fix is a personal styling service for women, men, and kids! For $20 per order—or “Fix”—a stylist will choose 5 clothing and accessory pieces to match the preferences you set, including your size/measurements, budget, and most importantly, your style.

      You’ll get to try on your pieces in the comfort of home. Keep what you love and return the rest within three days. You’ll only be charged for what you keep. (Return what you don’t want for free!) Plus, the $20 fee for the “Fix” goes towards anything you choose to keep, and if you keep all five pieces, you’ll get 25% off, too!

      Note that Stitch Fix isn’t necessarily a subscription service. You can request a Fix as a one-off whenever you need it. (This feature is especially handy when shopping for special occasions!) Or, you can set up recurring Fixes on a schedule that works for you. You can also stick with the same stylist, or change your stylist each time you request a Fix. We love how flexible this service is!

      What sizes does Stitch Fix offer?

    • Stitch Fix currently offers a wide range of sizes for women, men, and children:

      • Women: 0-24W (XS-3X) including petite, plus, and maternity sizes
      • Men: XS-3XL, waist 28”-48”, inseam 28”-36”
      • Kids: 2T-14

      How much does Stitch Fix cost?

    • When you sign up for Stitch Fix, you’ll get to note what you’re comfortable spending on different types of pieces (such as tops, bottoms, jackets, coats, shoes, etc.). The Stitch Fix FAQ page says that women’s and men’s items tend to range between $25-$500 and kids’ items start at $10. Communicate your needs to your stylist, and they’ll do their best to accommodate!

      And remember—with Stitch Fix, the only amount you pay up front is the $20 styling fee that they require for each “Fix” you order. Beyond that, you’re only charged for what you decide to keep.

      What kinds of styles & brands does Stitch Fix offer?

    • While trend-savvy, contemporary looks are their specialty, we’ve seen Stitch Fix stylists accommodate out-of-the-ordinary aesthetics, too. (Think retro silhouettes or outfits with edgier vibes.) Stitch Fix draws from a pool of hundreds of different brands, both well-known and up-and-coming, so they can easily match you with styles and prices that fit your needs.

      We’ve found that the key to getting the type of looks you want from Stitch Fix is to communicate, communicate, communicate! Thoughtfully fill out your style survey and send along extra notes or insights to your stylist if you’d like. We highly recommend creating a Pinterest board of outfit inspiration that you can share with your stylist. It’s a great way to visually convey what kinds of clothes catch your eye.

      Is Stitch Fix a subscription?

    • It’s up to you! Request a “Fix” as a one-off (a great move if you’re trying the service for the first time, or if you’re shopping for a special occasion), or sign up for their automatic deliveries program. Automatic deliveries can arrive as frequently as every 2 weeks or as infrequently as once per season. Pick a plan that works for your needs!

      How does Stitch Fix compare to other personal styling services?

    • While Stitch Fix regularly tops our list of best clothing and styling subscription boxes, there are lots of other styling services that are worth checking out. The programs that are most similar to the Stitch Fix model are Nordstrom’s Trunk Club ($25 per “Trunk”) and Dia & Co. ($20 per box).

      Because Trunk Club is connected to Nordstrom, we find the quality of the pieces to be reliably top-notch. However, the price point can be a little higher, too. (Their FAQ page says that men’s and women’s ready-to-wear styles tend to fall between $40-$300.) The $25 styling fee is also slightly higher than Stitch Fix’s $20 fee. Still, Trunk Club offers lots of little details that make it worthwhile—you get five days to try on clothes (Stitch Fix only allows for three), and Trunk Club makes it so easy to communicate with your stylist (via email, phone, or their handy chat feature).

      Dia & Co. works the same way as Trunk Club and Stitch Fix (pay a styling fee up front to have a personally-styled box of pieces sent for you to try on at home), except that this program is specifically for plus-size women. We love how bright, bold, and fun the Dia & Co. offerings are—their cool, contemporary pieces (which include dresses, separates, jeans, and more) are perfect for breaking you out of a style rut, whether you’re shopping for work, a date, or just an ordinary weekend.

      Of course, there are many more popular clothing subscriptions that have slightly different pricing or plans (ex: clothing boxes where everything’s for keeps, VIP programs that let you shop exclusive items at special prices, and the newest trend in fashion subscriptions—clothing rental). Check out our readers’ favorites here!

      Can I skip an automated delivery?

    • Yep! Just hop into your account and choose to “Skip this Fix”. You won’t be charged, nor will you receive a package until your next scheduled Fix.

      How do I change/cancel my Stitch Fix automated deliveries?

    • Sign in and choose “Manage Automatic Fixes” on your homepage. From there, you can cancel your automatic delivery schedule and cancel your next upcoming shipment. Know that this will only cancel the automatic deliveries for that account. If you have multiple accounts (for yourself, your kids, etc.), you’ll need to cancel each one individually!

      Where and how does Stitch Fix ship?

    • Stitch Fix only serves the US right now, though they’re looking to expand to the UK in 2019!

      Fixes arrive via USPS. Shipping and returns are free!
