Pros and Cons of Stitch Fix vs Trunk Club

Ever since I blogged about Trunk Club, I've been getting a lot of questions asking about how it's different than Stitch Fix. So I thought I would do a little comparison of both services to show the pros and cons of each one. (But really, getting clothes in the mail is always a pro!) 


Pros and Cons of Stitch Fix vs Trunk Club

In my opinion, Stitch Fix has a lot of pros that are great for a lot of people's lives. Stitch Fix is great if you just want to receive a fun box of clothes to try on every few weeks or months and easily add new pieces to your wardrobe. I also love that you get a 'style' card that shows you how you can wear pieces that they send to you with different outfits.

It's also fun because they send you pieces that match your 'style profile' but maybe something you wouldn't have picked otherwise. One of my favorite skirts and jackets are from Stitch Fix! 

The cons are that you do have to pay $20 for each fix. They do allow you to apply the $20 as credit if you keep anything from your Stitch Fix box. If you don't, they keep the money and you're only out $20. (Which I'm sure you've blown $20 on a lot of other things in life.) You are given an assigned stylist, but you can't actually speak to that person just send a message before they ship a fix to give them a little direction in what you're looking for in clothing and accessories.  Some people might find this great and less of a hassle, others may want to give their stylist a little more detail! 

If you want a service that is more personalized, then try Trunk Club.


Pros and Cons of Stitch Fix vs Trunk Club

In my opinion, Trunk Club doesn't have a lot of cons except there aren't any incentives to buy items. With Stitch Fix you receive 25% off the total cost if you buy the entire Stitch Fix box. To me, this is a non-issue. Sometimes with an incentive, I'll end up buying more just to save money when I didn't even want all of the items in the first place.  


Pros and Cons of Stitch Fix vs Trunk Club

The pros with Trunk Club are that you actually have your own stylist that you can call, email, or send messages to online or through their app. It's also great when there is a special event, vacation, or moment in life that you are looking for specifics items for your wardrobe. There are no hidden fees with Trunk Club - no fee to join, have a trunk ship to you, or have it shipped back. You only pay for what items you keep from the trunk and send the rest back. It's really that simple. 

If you're curious what a Stitch Fix box looks like, I've written a post here about it and a Trunk Club post here. To me, the costs are comparable with each item if you are giving each service your budget guidelines. Both can be pricey per item if you give no guidelines - so I like to tell each one how much I am willing to spend on a shirt, pants, jacket, etc. That sets everyone up for success.

  2. I haven't ever used either but I'm thinking Trunk Club might be worth a test drive. How often do you use it? Monthly? Quarterly?

  6. I tried Stitch Fix for four months and thought I was going to love it, but I ended up realizing it really is not a service designed for what I need and want in clothing. At the same time, I think it can work really well for some women. - Katy

  13. I keep almost signing up for one of these but then I just can't justify the cost of the clothes. I'm a Target price girl.

  14. Love this roundup and comparison between the 2 brands! I haven't heard of the Trunk Club, but gonna have to check it out.

  15. I enjoy Stitchfix but I don't like how I can rarely find the appropriate clothing to link on Like to Know it, but annoys the crap out of me. I feel like Stitchfix purposely does that so you can't link up the clothing! xx Adaleta Avdic

  16. Thank you for comparing! I haven't been thrilled with my recent stitch fix but I might have to try trunk club!

  17. I think the main reason I'll stay with StitchFix (for a little bit at least) is that I literally browse Nordstrom constantly and Stitchfix has exclusive brands/designs so it's fun to try something I couldn't normally buy. But great comparison and a good service to tell people about!
