These days it seems you can get a subscription box for just about anything: makeup, skincare, tea, clothing, the list goes on. With so many options available, it can be hard to find a subscription service that’s the right one for you. We’ve narrowed down our favorites to help you make the best decision. Let’s get started.

Stitchfix (click here)

Stitchfix charges a $20 styling fee that will be applied to items you decide to keep. You’ll take a quick survey to determine your style preferences, sizing, price range, and shipment frequency. You don’t have to sign up for automatic shipments, though Stitchfix offers frequencies ranging from every 2 weeks to every 3 months.

Next, your personal stylist will choose five pieces for you from over 1000 in-demand brands. Once you receive your box, you can opt to keep anything you like and return what you don’t. If you keep everything, you’ll get 25% off the price of the box. Stitchfix recently expanded its sizing options, and boxes are now available in plus, petite, and maternity.
