Stitch Fix is great if you’re looking to revamp your wardrobe but aren’t exactly sure where to start. All you have to do is set up a style profile. Then, based on your answers, one of Stich Fix’s personal stylists will handpick five new pieces to add to your wardrobe. When your “fix” arrives, it can contain anything from sweaters, jackets, skirts, jeans, accessories, and even shoes. After trying on all the pieces yourself, you get to decide what to keep and what to send back. You’re charged a $20 styling fee in the beginning, but it’s ultimately used as credit towards the items you want to keep.
