Stitch Fix is simply the best subscription service available today. I first began receiving my fixes in 2014 and continue to love how easy it is to shop and discover new brands and items I otherwise may not have chosen for myself. For a $20 styling fee you receive 5 hand-picked pieces from clothing to bags and accessories shipped right to your door. You have the convenience of trying on your fixes from the privacy of your own home and have three days to make a decision on what you’d like to keep or send back. Best part: return shipping is provided...even if you don’t keep a thing!
When you first sign up you complete what they call a style profile. Here you answer some questions regarding your personal style, which gives them an idea as to what you’d like to receive. But that’s not all. Here are simple ways that you can guarantee to love each and every one of your fixes!

Complete your style profile
Like I mentioned before, when you first create your free profile they will prompt you to fill out a style profile. This let’s your future stylists know a detailed run-down of your style preferences, measurements, and things to stay away from such as certain fabrics or patterns.
Create a style board on Pinterest
This step is one of the most important things you can do to ensure that your stylist gets the looks that you love.
Write descriptions of the things you pin
This step does take a bit of time to do but it’s so worth it in the end. I know, when I’m pinning I’m pinning first then going back later and writing my little stylist notes. I try to be as specific as possible in my explanation in why I’m pinning this to my board. I try to think about the photo and what I like most about it and what I would need in order to pull it off. Also, be sure to mention pieces you already have. I made sure to get across that the focus of the circled pin was the dress and not so much the accessories like the tote or denim jacket.
This maxi dress looks gorgeous but I know with my pear-shaped body type I need a similar maxi that’s preferably cotton or stretchy, not form-fitting. I love the floral pattern and would like the dress to be floor length, not ankle. I know in order to achieve this look the dress will have to be a size L or even XL depending on the material. We’ll see if this makes it into my next fix ;)
Send a detailed note every time you schedule a fix
When you go to schedule your next fix there’s a box where you can write a little note to your stylist that gives them an idea of what you’re looking for next. This is where you get really specific about what you need that month. Is there a special occasion coming up? A trip? Or that one favorite piece that’s missing from your closet? Share it and get specific!
I’m loving maxi dresses right now but due to maxis from previous fixes that haven’t been flattering at all, I need to get more specific in my notes. I also mentioned that fit and flare dresses are the most flattering style for my body type and that I was looking to add more colorful/print dresses into my look. I’m hoping that when my fix arrives I have a few dresses to choose from!
Link to your social media accounts
Just like they tell you, share yourself with your stylist by linking up your social media accounts. This gives them an idea of who you are and what you’re looking to add to your wardrobe.
