StitchFix Top Ten Tips

Interested in StitchFix?! I've been utilizing their shopping service for five years, I've been an Influencer for the company, and am presently on unlimited fixes for the year. So, here's a few tips for you to help you have the most successful fix yet.

1. Be 100% honest in your style profile. 

If you would never spend $150 on a pair of jeans, make sure your profile has your price ranges on point. If you don't want anything over $100, make that clear. Your profile is where it all starts!

2. Details, details, details! 

Tell your personal stylist what you loved and WHY, what you liked and WHY, and what you did not like and WHY. They are not a mind reader. They cannot read your thoughts. They also cannot read between the lines. Be as specific as possible. And if you think you're being too specific, be more specific!

3. Utilize the "extras" option.

StitchFix now has the option for you to add "extras" to your box in addition to the 5 items your stylist chooses. Camisoles, socks, bras, bralettes, and more. Your styling fee can go towards these items as well.

4. If you don't like it, it's ok. 

Don't keep something if you don't love it. It's ok. And if you don't like your whole box, email them at and explain why. They will credit your styling fee to use again your next box. Their customer support is pretty close to LLBean, they're THAT good.

5. Keep your stylist. 

Try to stick with the same stylist each time. It's a simple request you can leave in your notes. They get to know you and your style, your shape, your tastes, plus it develops consistency and your fixes will just keep getting better and better.

6. Pinterest!

Your stylist checks your Pinterest boards so if you don't have one, make one! You can even request certain items, specific pieces, and a focused fix. For example, my next fix I requested an all denim fix.

7. Try every single item on. 

Even if you don't like it. Then give your feedback on why.

8. Exchanges!!

When I first started five years ago, there wasn't an option for exchanges. In my last fix, I was able to exchange a jacket I loved but was too big and a wrong color for me for a smaller size and a different color. It's super simple when you check out - there's a clickable link for that!

9. Plan ahead

Have a wedding coming up? Ask for a few options for that. Need a new winter coat. Ask for a few to be included. Need a new maxi skirt? Let your stylist know! 

10. Don't give up.

Oftentimes, it takes a few fixes for your stylist to "get you". Don't give up because it's SO worth it when they do!

First and foremost and saving the best for last, communication is key. Be sure you're communicating as clearly as possible and it'll be the best mail day every time your fix arrives!

StitchFix is like having a personal shopper at your beckon call - take advantage of it and utilize it! It's a wonderful service that is worth every penny!
