If your closet needs an update, but the idea of going on a scavenger hunt at malls and department stores makes you want to crawl under a rock, then you’ll definitely want to check out these fashion services and subscriptions. They’ll keep you in style without the hassle of having to leave home.
The Trunk Club
This styling subscription box comes from Nordstrom. It’s filled with hand-picked selections from stylists who take the time to read and learn from your style profile. You speak with a stylist directly in real-time, either via phone or their messenger app. It’s even possible to share Pinterest boards of the looks you like directly with your stylist so they can get a better sense of your style from the start. When your stylist has your box ready, they’ll send you a digital preview, then you’ll have 48 hours to approve it or make changes to it before it ships.
Who This Box is Good For: Women who only want to answer a few questions and have their outfits selected for them, and women who want control over how often they receive curated boxes
Number of Items: 6 to 10 items per trunk
Cost: $25 styling fee, waived if you’re a Nordstrom cardholder. This fee will be credited toward any purchase. Shipping is always free, both ways
Discounts: No discounts, but you can use your Nordstrom card to earn rewards from any Trunk Club purchases
Brands Represented: Paige, Vince, Theory, Joie, Frame, AG, Splendid, and others. If it’s in Nordstrom stores, it could be in your box.
