If you know anything about me, you know how much I enjoy trying subscription boxes. From Stitch Fix to Amazon to Birch Box to Ipsy…I’ve enjoyed them all. And when my daughter told me that FabFitFun has a new subscription fashion box, I was intrigued! I’ve subscribed to their regular FatFitFun box for about a year, and always look forward to seeing that happy box full of beauty and home products on my front porch. So I thought I’d give their new service a try; and to double the fun, my daughter joined in! We had a blast styling each other, and trying on the pieces my stylist sent. Read on for all the deets, and let me know what you think!

How does the FabFitFun Style Box work?
The first step is to complete your style profile, similar to Stitch Fix’s style profile. (Read my latest Stitch Fix review HERE) There are several questions about your style and fit preferences, along with pics of different outfit styles. You pay a $20 styling fee that goes toward your purchase. If you love everything you receive you’ll get a 25% discount off your box. You have 3 days to try everything on, and to think about the pieces you received, and then you just send back what you don’t want using the prepaid shipping label. Easy-peasy.
FabFitFun Style Review
Kut from the Kloth Natalie High Rise Bootcut Jeans
Bootcuts are hands down the best cut of jeans for my pear shaped body. And Kut from the Kloth definitely gets it right with this pair. I checked in my profile that bootcuts were my preferred style, so I’m really glad my stylist listened and sent them. They fit so great, I didn’t want to take them off! Amanda tried on the jeans too (shown below) They’re a bit large on her, but she wanted to see how long they’d be. She’s 5’10” and I’m 57″ – the length was fine for her! I had to add taller wedges. So if you’re a tall gal, these bootcuts are for you!
Collective Concepts Floral Blouse | Drape Front Cardigan
The cute dress I received in my last Stitch Fix box was from Collective Concepts, so I was excited to try this top on. It has such beautiful lace details, and fit pretty well, but unfortunately it gaped a bit under my arms. Amanda is taller than I am, and it fit her perfectly. I’ve never been a fan of sleeveless tops, so I threw on the rust colored sweater my stylist sent. The cardigan is a really nice weight, not too heavy, and will be perfect for the office. It did feel a little “fallish” to me though, so I doubt I’ll be wearing it this summer. We’re both holding the Cork Fold Over Bag. It’s small and mighty, and can hold quite a few necessities! I love it!
Pret-a-Portee Gray Knit Blouse
This top is more of an elevated tee shirt. It’s a soft, lighter knit with super cute sleeve detail. Amanda tried it on with the bootcut denim jeans, giving it a little front tuck. The top looks great on her, don’t you think? By the way, notice the double button detail on the Kut from the Kloth jeans. Isn’t that a nice touch? She’s also wearing the Marlyn Schiff earrings I received in my December Stitch Fix.
Rita Striped Knit Dress
This darling striped tee shirt dress just didn’t work for me. I’m just way too pear shaped to pull off anything cut this straight. So I had Amanda try it on, and it fit her perfectly. The cutout back detail is super cute, and the front tie is so flattering! I think it’ll be fun for her to style with sneakers, (read my post on styling dresses with sneakers HERE) or with a white denim jacket and wedges for work. She’s wearing a pair of strappy sandals from Target in this pic.
Good Hyouman Sweatshirt
So Amanda and I almost fought over this top, but Mama won! I loved the fabric and the slouchy cut, and especially the message. You know how much I love graphic tees! This is the sweatshirt version of a graphic tee. The message is so timely, don’t you think? So cute. It’s a comfy weight, and perfect for these loungy pandemic days in. I’ll probably wear it with joggers and flip flops when I’m feeling especially lazy! I’m sure I’ll be styling it all the time this fall too. I’ve styled it with the multi-strand necklace from Kendra Scott., and the mixed metal earrings, also from Kendra Scott. Amanda tried it on with her distressed Universal Thread jeans from Target with a front tuck. Very cute!
Pros/Cons of the Style Box
- Very personal note from the stylist
- Great brands!
- More items in the box than Stitch Fix
- Very reasonably priced when “keep all items” discount is applied
- The website is still a little wonky
- No app
- Can’t preview items
My overall impression of the FabFitFun Style Box is a positive one. I do think that they’re hopping on the subscription bandwagon, and still have some kinks to work out. The lack of an app is definitely a minus in my book – one of the perks of Stitch Fix is previewing your fix and checking out on the app. I’m sure as they move the program along these things will be added. If you’d like to try FabFitFun’s regular box or their style subscription please feel free to use my referral code HERE. You’ll get $10 off your first box when you use that code! Give it a try, and let me know what you think. My summer box was amazing!
