Best Overall: Frank And Oak

Frank and Oak

Frank and Oak 

Essentials are always on-trend, which makes Frank And Oak one of the best clothing subscription boxes for women right now. The Canadian brand not only delivers timeless items within an attainable price point, but also prioritizes sustainable and eco-friendly materials and practices that minimize the company’s environmental impact.

Subscribers to Frank And Oak’s Style Plan box receive up to four items monthly, from shoes to outerwear, with most prices ranging from $29 to $149. A style quiz helps brand consultants fine-tune selections down to fit and color preferences. Shipping and returns are free, though there is a $25 fee for fully returned boxes—but subscribers can preview their boxes before they’re sent out, so that’s easily avoidable.

Garments are often made of sustainable materials like recycled wool and recycled hemp. The brand also puts into practice minimal impact methods like using eco-dyes and cruelty free insulation, as well as using recycled shipping boxes. Frank And Oak proves that with a subscription box you can look great and feel great about your choices, too.

Most Customizable: Stitch Fix

Stitch Fix

Stitch Fix

Stitch Fix is one of the most recognizable names in clothing subscription delivery boxes, and that isn’t by accident. The company has reached around 3 million customers who love the service’s rotating collection of brands available in women’s sizes XS through 3X with petite, plus, and maternity options available, too. Stitch Fix also has boxes for men and kids.

To start, new clients take a style personality quiz that begins by asking them to identify outfits that resemble their personal look. Clients then choose what kind of events they’re dressing for—like a day at the office or an evening on the town, what colors and patterns they’ll never wear, what fits and hem lengths they prefer, what parts of the body they like to play up and which they like to conceal, and what price range they typically shop within. What clients ultimately end up spending each month depends on the garments they choose to keep. 

Stitch Fix offers free delivery, returns, and exchanges, but charges a $20 styling fee that can be put towards any garment that isn’t returned. Unlike other boxes, no subscription is required to use Stitch Fix, which makes taking the plunge into clothing subscription boxes about as low-commitment as it gets. Better yet, Stitch Fix lets clients choose when their box will be delivered, making it all the more convenient.

Stitch Fix carries an array of well-known brands like Kate Spade, Toms, and Free People alongside brands that are exclusive to the delivery service. Don’t like the items arriving in the box? No problem. The Style Shuffle feature on the brand’s app may feel like a game as it asks clients to choose outfits they like, but it actually helps the company’s algorithm nail the client’s ideal look for future boxes.

Best for Options: Le Tote

Le Tote

Le Tote

If you tire of garments after just a few wears, Le Tote is the answer to that. This clothing subscription box rents items to its clients, meaning garments and accessories are returned after as few or as many wears as the client fancies. Le Tote also gives users the option to buy any garment they fall in love with at a significantly discounted rate.

Le Tote has two plans: its classic subscription starts at $59 per month and its maternity subscription starts at $79 per month. Clients get to choose each garment and accessory that’s sent to them, with recommendations from Le Tote on offer, so the monthly fee is never wasted on unloved items. The company also offers a $5 per month optional insurance plan that covers potential damage. 

For items that clients can’t part with, their discounted cost gets deducted from the credit card on file once the tote’s other items are returned. Items offered vary from scarves and necklaces to jackets and blouses.

For clients who desire a constantly rotating closet, Le Tote will send out unlimited totes per month, stocked with brands like Calvin Klein and French Connection depending on the client’s subscription plan. There’s also the option to pause or cancel a membership at any time, and delivery and returns are always free.

Best Luxury: Trunk Club

Trunk Club

Trunk Club

Nordstrom’s answer to the subscription clothing box, Trunk Club, delivers all the brands found at its parent company's retail stores right to the client’s doorstep. This subscription service delivers the high quality of garments and accessories that Nordstrom is known for, and Trunk Club’s prices are reflective of that with items ranging from around $50 to $300. 

Subscribers get to review the products in their box before they’re shipped, but a comprehensive style quiz at the outset of signing up helps the brand’s stylists hone in on what sizing, colors, garments, and shoe styles the client prefers, among other specificities. Trunk Club’s stylists remain available to clients throughout their subscription to note changing preferences and curate the boxes more to the client’s liking.

Trunk Club offers three subscriptions that send boxes out every month, every other month, or every third month. Each box incurs a $25 styling fee that will be put toward any one of the six to nine garments a subscriber chooses to keep. Because Trunk Club is affiliated with a major department store, it has a leg up on other subscription boxes in that some alterations on garments purchased from the box and brought into a brick-and-mortar Nordstrom are complimentary.

Most Sustainable: thredUP

thredUP

thredUP

Online secondhand clothing distributor thredUP launched its own clothing delivery service called Goody Boxes in 2017. While technically not a subscription service, Goody Boxes still brings a curated selection of items to the client’s doorstep as often or—not—as they choose. 

A personal look quiz helps company stylists hone in on what kinds of secondhand items clients are looking for, and even takes into account Pinterest inspiration and looks displayed on a client’s Instagram account if provided.

ThredUP offers boxes with different themes, from Cold Weather Essentials to 9 to 5 Styles, that make selecting the 10 items in each box a cinch. Clients can also choose to receive a stylist-curated box or a box full of their own picks that can include garments, accessories, and jewelry from a huge collection of brands including J. Crew, Coach, and Rachel Zoe.

There are a few things that make Goody Boxes great: The 10 items delivered in each box are secondhand, meaning Goody Boxes is more sustainable than the average clothing delivery service. Each box has a styling fee of just $10 that goes towards any item that a client keeps, and those items are already discounted from their original retail price.
