Subscription services that can raise your fashion profile

What’s better than a collection of surprise items arriving at your doorstep every month or so at prices that beat in-store options? The amazing little grab bags we found are full of trendy must-have clothing and accessories. Even if you have time to shop every month, having a personal stylist who pushes your fashion boundaries is totally worth the splurge.

Le Tote

For a monthly price, you can choose a “tote” of three clothing pieces and two accessories from the company’s inventory. You can try the items on, wear them to work or when you’re hanging out with friends, and once you’re done, just ship the stuff you don’t want back and purchase the pieces you do want. Another bonus: You get unlimited “totes” every month, so you don’t have to wait to try out more stuff.


This is made for those who love a little bling but don’t have the money (or space) for a huge jewelry box full of designer baubles. First, you’ll create a profile on the site and add items to your jewelry wish list. Then you’ll get three hand-selected pieces in the mail based on your style. You can wear the pieces for as long as you like and send back when you don’t need them anymore. You can get an unlimited amount of boxes sent to you every month—the restriction is you can only borrow three pieces at a time, so you’ll have to return a piece before you can request a new one.

Looking for the newest in plus-sized fashion? This service is it. Based on your subscription plan, you can choose from one to 10 garments at a time from the site’s collections.

With this subscription box, a personal stylist will choose five pieces based on a style profile you make on the site. Once you get the box, you have three days to decide what you want to buy and what you want to send back. You can even send your stylist detailed feedback about the items, so she can make a better, more personalized selections the next time. There’s a $20 styling fee for every box, but that fee can be credited towards any item you decide to buy.


It’s time to change up your workout uniform of plain black leggings and a solid-colored tank. Customers first take a lifestyle quiz, then Fabletics will recommend some workout clothing for you to purchase. If you buy the VIP subscription, you’ll choose a complete outfit (a top and a bottom) by the 5th of each month to be shipped to your house. If you don’t like any of the choices, you can opt to “Skip the Month,” so you won’t be charged.
