Leaving your home in these trying times can be stressful. Whether you’re going to the gym, picking up some food, or going clothes shopping, it’s probably best to minimize how much you’re exposing yourself to the outside world. Not to mention, it’s just great to be at home, relaxing, as much as possible. You may or may not have heard, but there is a service that allows you to try on clothes and new styles from the comfort of your home. It’s called Stitch Fix.

It offers fashions for women, kids, and men, and the styles are always picked out by resourceful experts. Here’s how it works: You take a brief style quiz to let the Stitch Fix team know your personality, your interests, and what kind of clothes you love most. You are then paired up with an expert stylist, who will consider the styles available, and your quiz responses, picking out the best outfit(s) for you.

Stitch Fix then ships the clothing right to your doorstep. You can try everything on, keep what you like, or send back what you don’t, for free. In fact, you don’t have to keep any of the items if you’re not happy — send it all back — but the team will keep trying until you find something that fits. It sure beats the heck out of fighting small crowds and visiting multiple stores just to find a great shirt or pair of pants!

A Shopping Experience That’s Created Just for You

When you take the quiz, you’re not just telling the team a little about yourself and some of the things you like, you’re also answering a selection of relevant questions, like your budget, fit preferences, body type, and more. You can also make requests or provide feedback, after every shipment, to help refine what kind of styles are sent your way. It means that not only is the first shipment tailored just for you, but so are all subsequent orders, each one matching your preferences more than the last. It’s like having your own stylist, available when you need them, and you’re bouncing ideas off one another.

There are over a thousand brands and styles to choose from, including Nike, Adidas, Toms, Under Armour, Levis, Vans, Polo Ralph Lauren, Callaway Apparel, and many more. In addition to the expert stylist option, you can also browse a personalized store, with items handpicked just for you by the Stitch Fix team. We have reviewed earlier styles that Stitch Fix had available if you’re interested to see what we thought. Spoiler: It was a “home run on the first swing.”

You’re in the Driver’s Seat

You’re always in charge, deciding not just what to keep or send back, but also what preferences you share, or how often you make a purchase. There are no subscriptions required to take part, and shipping, returns, and exchanges are always free. Always.

Automatic deliveries are the default option, which means Stitch Fix will send you new styles — picked by the experts — every month. But it’s not a requirement, and you can always turn off automatic shipments. They truly allow you to find the option and schedule that matches your needs. If you want to place an order manually every time, you can do just that. If you turn automatic shipments on, you can even adjust the frequency with which they arrive.

It’s your choice how much or how little you spend. Not to mention, you can decide whether to receive the automatic shipments each month or the alternative, manual shipments precisely when you’re ready for new gear. You’re not locked into any contracts or subscriptions either, so you’re free to change things up wherever, or whenever you want.

Why not give it a try? All it takes is a quick style quiz — just a few minutes tops — and you can see what kind of apparel the stylists have picked out just for you.

What is old money style? (Plus, how you can achieve the look)
Adopt Grandpa Core with Old Money Style
Man in newsboy cap and pleated trousers

There is a new trend hitting the style industry that a surprising amount of young people are driving. While the war between Gen Z and Baby Boomers rages on in social issue and economic discussions, a bridge is being built with their clothing. Grandpa core is beginning to land with the youngest group entering the work world as they adopt pleated pants, suspenders, double-breasted jackets, and loafers. While they may rage against the elites online, Gen Z is adopting the old money aesthetic in an attempt to take it for themselves and change the narrative.

Old money style screams class, sophistication, and luxury. While trends may be full of pieces that adhere to the newest looks that go in and out of style, the old-money look sticks to classic pieces that never age out. It invests in basic pieces that may seem boring and plain but combine together to elevate every ensemble to the likes of JFK, Jay Gatsby, and countless others who defined our style in the 20th Century.

These silver rings for men should be added to your accessories arsenal
Our top picks for silver rings for men

Silver rings for men have always felt like some kind of relic from rebellious '90s rock icons like Steven Tyler, or even early-aughts singers like Chad Kroeger (regardless of where you fall on the "Is Nickelback a good band?" question.) Either that or they usually appear as simple engagement rings under a quick Google search. But, silver rings for men have made a comeback, and they're now seen as the ultimate mark of "fashun." From simple, minimalist designs to intricately carved pieces, there is a silver ring to suit every man's taste these days, whether you just want to add a high-end vibe to your outfit or actually draw attention with an eyebrow-raising accessory.

In terms of affordability, silver rings for men perfectly bridge the gap between stainless steel and gold, meaning you can still look stylish without the ensuing buyer's remorse that usually comes with a hefty price tag. So, what if you don't want to be able to knock someone out with all the accessories that the frontman of Aerosmith sports, yet need something a little more noticeable than a simple silver ring with nothing on it? We've got you covered.
