Summer 2017 Stitch Fix Box Review

My teenage niece, Sydney, recently received a Stitch Fix box and so I thought I would share some of the items and her thoughts on them.  She received 5 items, white jeans, a summer dress, 2 sleeveless tops and a pair of sandals.  Despite being a size too large, her favorite item was the Articles of Society Distressed Skinny Jean. These are a size 4 – she is 5’7″ and weighs about 120-25 lb, with a waist size of 25.  They were comfortable and make a great basic for the spring/summer/fall (and even winter).  In the fall, these jeans would look great with a chunky knit turtleneck or a neutral crew neck sweater along with black or leopard flats in the fall.

The summer dress in the box is the Nisha Dress by French Grey in light purple (size 5) which runs $48 – cute dress, especially for showing off shoulders and arms.  Here it is below, paired with the Swizzle Pom Lace Up Sandal by Steve Madden ($79), that also came in the box. The sandals are fun and were comfortable, but weren’t really her style – so they are going back.  With fall just around the corner, probably not the best investment.

Below is the Charliese Embroidery Detail Halter Top by Skies Are Blue (size S; $54).  I think it’s very pretty and love the orange color.  I think it’s nice on Sydney, but she does not feel it’s flattering on her. She is well-endowed on top with a small waist, so billowy tops are tend to make her look larger than she is.  But, for those of us without that problem (not a bad problem to have…) – I think it’s a great top.

The last item is the Q&A V-Neck Top (Size S; $48) below.  I think it’s very pretty and can be dressed up or down.  But again, for Sydney, it’s a bit loose-fitting on the bottom, so not as flattering on her body type. This one will go back as well.  Although due to style/sizing issues, nothing in the box was not a keeper for Sydney, I think the 2nd box might do the trick.  I still think the Stitch Fix boxes are a great idea, especially for someone who doesn’t have time to shop and/or doesn’t mind paying for convenience. If anyone has had a particularly good or bad experience with special sizes (petite or tall, etc.) with Stitch Fix, please share! Again, thanks for reading!
