An Honest Review of Wantable

by - July 07, 2022

I am once again in the process of updating my wardrobe to fit a new season of my life. For you newcomers, I recently accepted a teaching position and quickly realized that some sections of my closet aren't classroom-ready.

I've been adding teacher-appropriate pieces here and there from various places all summer long, but I realized this was the perfect opportunity to give Wantable a try.

Wantable is an online styling program that's very comparable to StitchFix, which I've used several times over the years. But this is not a comparison post.

Today I'm going to break down my first experience with Wantable and what I think about the service.

I really like that there are three different edits to choose from - Style, Active, or Sleep & Body. I went with style, but I'm intrigued by the other two. There's also an option for a themed box and one for men.

Okay, so the first thing you do is take a style quiz. This is where you put in all your measurements and set some preferences for your style and price range. This is broken down into pretty much every clothing category you can think of plus accessories. The quiz is like every other style quiz I've taken, but maybe a touch more involved.

Once you've done all that, you have the option of scrolling through a seemingly-unending stream of clothing options. You can request or deny as many items as you want. They recommend doing that for at least 20 items. You aren't guaranteed to receive all of the things you request, but it does help your stylist pick things for your box.

Speaking of your box. Each box contains seven items. When you receive them, you have five days to decide what you want to keep, exchange, or return. If you need longer than five days, there's an option to extend the try-on period. They provide a prepaid envelope for sending back unwanted items, and your $20 styling fee is applied to your total at checkout.

I really like the option of being able to exchange an item for a different size.

Of the seven items I received, I kept five (pictured above). I originally didn't like two of the five I kept, but once I tried them on I fell in love. So major props to my stylist for hitting that nail on the head. I also received a paperclip necklace that I requested from the stream (top left).

Everything I received was good quality. I've already worn the blue striped t-shirt several times, and I can't wait to style the olive green pants for school. Price-wise, I can admit that I probably would not spend this much in a physical store or online shopping. At the same time, these are all items I would probably not find in my local stores.

Overall, this was a pleasant experience and I'll most likely do it again. Right now, I'm signed up for seasonal edits, but there are different levels of automatic shipments, or you can choose not to automate the service at all. The great part is that this isn't a subscription so there are no recurring fees, and you won't be penalized for not ordering.
