How Stitch Fix Works and How to Get Your Best Fix
At Stitch Fix Website, you fill out a VERY detailed style profile. They ask everything from your height, weight, to top and bottom sizes. You include details on the types of styles you like such as glamorous, preppy or boho as well as a bunch of info on how you want things to fit.
Theboxqueen’s Tip: Be as honest with yourself here as possible. I remember when I first filled my style profile, I answered the Q’s with more of what I dream my style to be rather than what was actually needed for my current lifestyle. I am a mom of three young kids. I love glam style, and incorporate that into my life here and there. The truth is most glam pieces are not functional for my everyday life. I now ask for more casual styles.
My suggestion is to fill out the style profile even if you are not ready to order just now; it’ll give you an idea on your style and you’ll get a sense on what Stitch Fix is about.
- You pay a $20 styling fee upfront. This is applied to your keepers, so if you keep at least one piece you don’t lose it. Also when you keep your whole box ( like I did a couple times so far) you get 25% off the entire purchase. I always keep at least one piece as I would hate to lose my styling fee.
- Make a Pinterest board that is a good representation of your style. Pin types of Stitch Fix pieces you like as well as your own photos so the stylists can see who they are styling and your fashion choices.
Theboxqueen’s Tip: Here is my personal Stitch Fix Pinterest Board. I pin what I like from Stitch Fix here as well as how I styled previous pieces so the stylists can get a better idea of what I like, my body type etc. I think these all help them find the best pieces for me. Feel free to join me there to see what I am liking from new SF items, and my new SF outfits.
- Leave detailed notes to your stylist when you check out. When it’s time for checking out, they ask you for feedback on your fix. Write why you loved your keeper item(s), and the specific reasons why a piece didn’t work for you.
Theboxqueen’s Tip: I always make sure to include details such as ” The waist was a tad too tight” or ” The color wasn’t flattering on me” or ” The skirt was two inches too short for my taste”. The more specific the better.
- Make requests but know that there are no guarantees. One fun thing about Stitch Fix is the surprise factor, and how it pushes you out of your comfort zone.
- If you don’t want to wait too long for fixes, sign up for automatic shipments. You can determine the frequency. I usually go for once a month nowadays but I may make it more frequent again once the new season rolls in.
- You have three days to decide, and mix and match with your own clothes. When you are done, you send back everything you don’t want to keep; in a prepaid envelope included with your box. Love how quick and easy this system works.
- I love that SF now offers exchanges. Do you love your items but need a smaller or bigger size? Just let them know to make an exchange.
- Stitch Fix now offers petite, and maternity styles and recently started Men’s Styling. YAY!!!!!
I get a lot of e-mails with the question ” What do you ask for in your personal style profile?“.
I ask for pieces that are suitable for a mom of three kids under the age of 12, but who also loves cool, trendy items that can easily be mixed and matched. I think you can definitely be a mom, and stay chic especially with comfy pieces high on style. In addition, I ask for colors, a variety of textures, and prints. I think these bring life to your closet, and also to your existing outfits.
In my December box, I received a puffer coat, a dress fit for the holidays, a clutch, a pair of corduroy pants, and a tunic top. Let’s take a closer look now. Under the photos you’ll find my thoughts, style tips, and outfit details/shopping lists.
The first piece out of my box was the Edyson Hampton Corduroy Skinny Jeans in a gorgeous mustard color. Stitch Fix styled the pants in casual chic outfits on the style card.
Edyson Hampton Corduroy Skinny Jean ($68)
This pair was so cheerful. Not only were the pants in one of the seasons trendiest colors, mustard, but they also had a soft fabric and a comfortable fit.
Style Tip: Lately I’ve been loving teal with various other bright colors, and mustard is one of those. I built my outfit on the teal pumps, and mustard corduroys combo (also have & love these corduroy pants), and added a navy, basic long sleeve (that I can’t recommend enough as a must have closet basic. I have this one in burgundy, black, and charcoal too) as a third main color to anchor the look. This plaid, large loop scarf added warmth & pattern, and my neutral crossbody completed my outfit.
STATUS – KEPT
This was a very easy decision for me. The skinny corduroy pair was by far my favorite piece of the December box. They brought fun, and a happy vibe to my closet, and I am looking forward to share many more looks with these pants.
RECREATE THE LOOK
Top: Caslon Long Sleeve Tee | Pants: Stitch Fix (Similar Corduroy Pants I Have & Love) | Shoes: Sam Edelman | Scarf: Plaid Infinity Scarf | Bag: Rebecca Minkoff (Kept from this Review) | Jewelry: Vogue Tote (Get 50% OFF Here With CODE: VTBQueen50 – Find My Review Here )
Stitch Fix styled the Edith Lace Dress in a trendier look with leopard pumps and a leather jacket along with a more classic outfit with a trench coat and glam accessories.
Wisp Edith Lace Dress ($108)
This red lace dress has a darling shape, and fabric. It comes with its own belt too. This is a very feminine piece, and its also perfect for the holidays.
Style Tip: This girly dress makes enough statement on its own with its sweet silhouette, and eye-catching red color. I wanted to keep the jewelry on the minimum, and added my Rocksbox earrings to add shine & sparkle fit for a holiday party. ( You can get a FREE MONTH of Rocksbox here with CODE: theboxqueenxoxo – See all my reviews here! )
For accessories I chose the clutch (similar style I love) that also came in my December Stitch Fix. For shoes I picked the mixed media peep toe Mary Jane’s with velvet, and snake print gold leather. (another peep toe style I like)
RECREATE THE OUTFIT
STATUS – SENT BACK
I really liked this dress. I would seriously consider keeping it if the belt was not slightly misplaced on my torso. It should have been about an inch below to be at my normal waist level.
Glamorous Teo Snake Print Clutch ($48)
The third piece out of my December Stitch Fix box, like I mentioned above, was this snake print clutch. It also has a chain inside so you can double it as a crossbody or a shoulder bag. It’s beautifully made, and the print is timeless.
STATUS – SENT BACK
During the Cyber Monday sales, I’ve acquired a couple clutches. I passed this one but can recommend it if you are in search of a similar piece.
Dress: Stitch Fix ( Similar Style I Love) | Clutch: Stitch Fix ( Love this similar shape too) | Shoes: Juicy Couture/old ( Great Peep Toe Option) | Jewelry: ROCKSBOX ( Get your FREE MONTH with CODE: theboxqueenxoxo )
Stitch Fix styled the Andrew Marc puffer coat with jeans & a dress.
Andrew Marc Kristiansand Puffer Coat ($148)
I’ve received a similar Puffer Coat from Stitch Fix in this review. This one is almost identical but more substantial, and I love that this version comes with a hood. I appreciated how warm this jacket is too; its getting really cold here.
STATUS – SENT BACK
As much as I loved this coat, I have this puffer coat in navy that is also super warm, and versatile. Otherwise, this piece would be a no brainer.
Puffer Coat: Stitch Fix ( Love This Option) | Top: Stitch Fix | Leggings: Hue Leggings– They are the best!! | Necklace: ROCKSBOX ( Get your FREE MONTH here with CODE: theboxqueenxoxo) | Bag: Rebecca Minkoff via Vogue Tote (Get 50% OFF with CODE: VTBQueen50) Boots: Colehaan – old ( Love these boots too)
In the Stitch Fix style card, the Mixed Material pullover is styled with jeans, and a pair of pants.
Love Token Cierra Mixed Material Collared Pullover ($74)
The final piece in December Stitch Fix was this Mixed Material Collared Pullover. It has a built in collar, and also lace detailed hem.
Style Tip: On my 5 4′ frame, the Love Token piece was at the perfect tunic length. I paired it with my wardrobe staple leggings. These leggings are a great value at under $30, and I have them in all three colors. They are very flattering as the fabric is thick enough to hold everything in, and also they are well made so they don’t loose their shape. Highly recommend these!
For accessories I chose my Rocksbox statement necklace ( Get your FREE MONTH here with CODE: theboxqueenxoxo ), grey mid calf boots, (also love these slouchy boots) and the cobalt bag from this review.
STATUS – SENT BACK
Although I liked the lace detailing of the pullover, the layered shirt look was a bit too classic for me. I do like the length of this top though and will mention that for my future pieces.
