Subscription boxes are consistently popular. It’s fun to have something picked out for you show up each month and often feels like a kind of gift to yourself. A clothing subscription box can be fun and practical all at once, which is why Stitch Fix is so instantly appealing. Stitch Fix works as a kind of personalized styling service. It takes into account your preferences and dressing habits once you fill in the Stitch Fix Style Quiz, and then sends stuff it thinks you’d love.

It’s well-priced too as you only pay for the items you want to keep, meaning you don’t have to worry about paying excessively for clothing you don’t want or need. Still not sure if it’s for you? Read on and we’ll guide you through what you need to know.

What is Stitch Fix?

Stitch Fix calls itself “your online personal stylist” for good reason. Sign up and take the style quiz, and Stitch Fix selects items from its huge inventory, that it thinks you’ll like. All items are picked by a team of experts based on what they think might work best for you. Everything is considered including your personal aesthetic, your style, your budget, plus where you plan on attending. It accounts for the office, an active lifestyle, along with a look you might want on a date or night out.

Despite being considered a subscription box, there’s no subscription required. You simply get sent a Stitch Fix box when requested. It includes one full outfit from footwear to pants and shirts. From there, you can try them out and see what you like most. Best of all, you don’t have to worry about driving to a store, dealing with other customers or pesky staff, and you get to try everything on from the comfort of your own home. What more could you want?

Birkenstock is taking on Crocs with its new $150 Lutry clog
Be honest: You're tired of Crocs and are glad Birkenstock did this
Birkenstock Lutry Clog

"You either die a hero, or you live long enough to see yourself become the villain." Some fashion trends show up, and they just don't go away. They grab ahold of a specific part of our societal collective psyche and refuse to die. Crocs seem to be one of these trendy items that just won't go away. They took the idea of the wooden clog made famous by their medieval craze in Europe and replaced the wood with silicone. They added to the garment by adding a backstrap, allowing the wearer to put it into "Sport Mode," where they can wander Starbucks to their heart's content without losing their intricately decorated silicone slip-on.

Then you have brands that will take a fashion trend, refusing to die, and give it a little class, a little panache. You have a brand that will take what you would normally add flair to (like a bad version of Office Space) and add a simple twist of elegance that not only makes the trend more enjoyable but ensures that it stays around. Birkenstock is now going head-to-head with Crocs in an attempt to add some luxury to the world of the modern-day clog by introducing their Lutry Clog.

Brooks challenges Vuori with new Luxe Apparel Collection men’s clothing (and women’s clothing!) line
Workout clothing is now more fashionable than ever
Two people walking on the street in Luxe

There has always been a separation between fashion and function, style and getting the job done. When it came to gym clothes, men were often used to simply throwing on a ratty old t-shirt and the same basketball shorts we have always worn. The world is ever-evolving, and the fitness world is beginning to get stylish. Brands are becoming more focused on style and comfort, closing the gap between fashion and function. Vuori has long been the pioneer of the stylish comfort game. But now they have a new competitive adversary on the market.

Brooks has been a mainstay in footwear since the early 1900s when they made bathing shoes. That's right, shoes made to be worn in the rivers, oceans, and anywhere the tender footed wanted to go. They developed shoes across many industries before they took aim at the one that held their passion: running. Decades later, they are one of the leading authorities in all things running, with some of the best shoes money can buy. Their next step is the release of the Luxe Collection, a combination of men's clothing and women's clothing that is just as good on the run as on the couch.
