Style Reviews: Wantable Style Edit Review – January 2016

My Style Edit is by far my most anticipated mail arrival of the month. I love checking out the goodies that the stylists specifically pick out for me and then adding my favorite pieces to my wardrobe.

Here’s how it works: for a non-refundable $20 styling fee, the Wantable stylists pick out five pieces that match your tastes, which you’ll indicate by taking a short style quiz. When I filled it out, I mentioned that I love dresses, classic, tops, rock, bottoms, denim, casual chic, sweaters and jackets, and that I like glam and boho.

When the package arrives at your doorstep, you have five days to try everything on and pick out which favorites are worthy of your closet. Keep what you like, send back what you don’t in a prepaid USPS envelope and only get billed for what you keep. There are even ways to save money! The $20 styling fee is applied to your final purchase and if you keep all five items, you’ll get an additional 20% off.

This month, I was hoping for some winter wear to keep me from freezing every time I have to take my dog for a walk in the frigid weather. Wantable delivered on some really warm, gorgeous pieces.

V Neck Slub Tee Grey, $64

This long-sleeved, flowy v-neck is the type of top I’d wear casually around the house. It’s comfy enough for lounging on the couch and binging Netflix, but also sleek enough to wear to the office.

Versatile pieces like this are a necessity for the busy post-holiday season of getting back to work; you’ll want to be comfortable while you catch up on all those e-mails.

Slub Poncho Grey, $89

I think I can honestly say that I’ve never worn a poncho in my entire life before this little beauty arrived at my doorstep. When I pulled this out of my Style Edit, I initially felt a bit intimidated. As far as I was concerned, the only person who can look good in a poncho is Taylor Swift.

It turns out I was wrong- it’s actually a hip, bohemian style that anyone could pull off given the right accessories. This poncho is especially cute with a trendy hat and a pair of skinny jeans to show off your figure. It’s a bit baggier than I prefer, which was the only downfall.

Wantable is always good for trying out new styles that are based off of your indicated likes. Whenever they throw me something totally new and different from my usual buys, I’m almost always happy with it.

Mixed Media Open Cardigan Grey, $72

This cardigan simply wasn’t for me. Personally, I’m not big on cardigans that don’t actually close- no zipper, no buttons, etc. The whole point is to stay warm!

Don’t get me wrong: the grey design was chic with unique fabric around the edges, a perfect style for a business environment, but it’s just too cold on the East Coast right now to opt for a piece of clothing so thin.

Dex Boyfriend 5 Pocket Rolled Jean 28, $79

These darkwash boyfriend jeans roll up at the ankles and have a few rips scattered here and there for some additional flare. They’re trendy, comfortable in a way jeans usually aren’t and all-around perfect. Imagine a loose fit that still manages to be flattering. Sound like a fairy tale? Nope. These jeans do the trick.

Marled Boat Neck Sweater, $70

I saved my favorite piece from this month for last. As a general lover of anything comfy and warm, this knit sweater is bound to become one of my most worn items of clothing. Despite being loose, it still fits comfortably on my body and doesn’t puff up like some overly-thick sweaters do.

Plus, it provides the perfect amount of warmth to keep you warm under a coat, but not so much that you’re sweating through the rest of your day indoors. Ah, balance!

In total, these items cost $374. The 20% discount for keeping all five pieces combined with the subtracted $20 styling fee brings this collection down to $279.20. That’s nearly $100 of savings- money you can save for keeping even more clothes when your Edit arrives next month!
