How to Choose a Clothing Subscription Box for Women – Buying Guide

As with regular clothes shopping, shopping for a clothing subscription box is a highly personal decision. Keep in mind your lifestyle and fashion style as you consider these different factors.

Find a Box that Fits Your Lifestyle

Find a Box that Fits Your Lifestyle
There are clothing boxes that span the range of everything wearable. From office wear to lingerie, from shoes to jewelry, if you can wear it, there’s a box for it. Different boxes specialize in different things, so look for a box that will fit your lifestyle and fashion choices.

To Keep or Not to Keep Should be Your First Question

There are two main types of clothing subscriptions: buying and renting. There are pros and cons to each, so consider your budget and needs when making your choice.

Buying: For Those Looking to Fill Out Their Wardrobe

Buying: For Those Looking to Fill Out Their Wardrobe
Like other types of subscriptions, most clothing subscription boxes are built around purchasing and keeping certain items in your box. These types of boxes are great for those who are looking to change up their look or those who need to accumulate a separate wardrobe for work.

Renting: For Those Who Appreciate Trends or Minimalism

Renting: For Those Who Appreciate Trends or Minimalism
Some subscription services will send you clothing items for you to return once you’ve worn them. This option is great for those who like to have a rotating wardrobe of the latest trends. This is also good for those who don’t necessarily like to have a lot of stuff in their homes and wouldn’t appreciate accumulating more stuff every month.

Also, If you have a job that requires frequent attendance to high-end functions and parties, then a rental service might be best.

Choose Between Curated, General, or Chosen

Choose Between Curated, General, or Chosen
Most subscriptions will ask you to take a personal style quiz and then send you a curated box of items that fits your tastes. Some of these also involve consultations with a stylist, which allows for the company to get to know more about your personal style and adjust your boxes accordingly with feedback. 

There are others that send the same items to everyone in a given month. Both this option and the style quiz option are great for those who appreciate the style of the subscription and don’t necessarily need anything in particular.

However, there are also subscriptions that allow you to completely control the contents of your box for a flat monthly fee. These tend to be rental options and are best for those who need particular pieces for special events or occasions.

Check Out the Return Policies Before Purchase

Check Out the Return Policies Before Purchase
Because you don’t actually get the chance to try anything on (or even see the items, in some cases) before you get your box, it’s important that your subscription have a comprehensive return system

Many subscription boxes will allow you to try everything on, return what you don’t like, and then pay for what you keep. Others will charge you upfront and send a refund for the items you don’t like. Just be aware that many boxes that send out a general box to all subscribers don’t have return options.

What is a Styling Fee?

What is a Styling Fee?
Because many subscriptions allow you to try everything on and only pay for the items you keep, they often charge styling fees to prevent you from wearing everything once, sending it back, and not paying for anything.
In some cases, the styling fee is the base price for the subscription, and everything you choose to keep is charged on top of it. In other cases, the styling fee is only charged if you decide not to keep anything.

What Should I Do With All of My Old Clothes?

What Should I Do With All of My Old Clothes?
With this influx of new clothing, you might find yourself in need of a closet purge. Here are a few of the best ways to get rid of old items

Ask friends or family if they want any of it or sell them online. Aside from sites like eBay and Craigslist, there are a few great clothing-specific markets (Poshmark, Vinted, ThredUp) that allow you to sell your old clothes online.

Recycle them. Textiles are one of the leading pollutants, so to ensure your clothes don’t just end up in the trash pile, send them to a recycler! There are a ton of companies that will accept any sort of old clothing items, and some will even pay for it!

Summary

So there you have it–a comprehensive guide to finding the right women’s clothing subscription box for you! As many of these kinds of boxes do have easy cancellation policies, feel free to shop around for the right one before committing. What you wear plays a huge role in how you’re perceived, after all.
