If you haven’t heard of Stitch shop yet, it is a personal styling service that sends you clothes to try on at home. It is available for women, men, and kids.
You can sign up for a Stitch Fix account online and indicate when you want to receive a shipment. You can get a shipment every 2-3 weeks, every month, every other month or even every three months. You can also decide if you want to keep all the items in your box or just some of them. You can even request a specific stylist.
The first step is filling out your style profile. This is very detailed and asks you a lot of questions about your sizing, body shape, preferred fit and style, if there are any colors or prints you prefer to avoid, etc. It also asks you about the occasion(s) for which you’re shopping (workwear, going out to a wedding or just new workout gear). You can share Pinterest boards with your stylist too to give them more ideas of what you like.
Once you’ve done that, you can set a price range for the amount of money you’re willing to spend on your Fixes. You can update this information between Fixes as well, but I find it is really helpful to know your budget for each item so that you don’t get something totally out of your league.
While I really love the idea of Stitch Fix and it does provide a great option for women who need to add workwear to their wardrobe or just have a hard time finding clothes they like, it isn’t for everyone. Luckily, there are many other options out there for people who don’t want to pay for a subscription but do need some help building their closet. Stitch shop
