SuitableYou Review #1

Tuesday, November 7, 2017
I was really excited to find a style service that caters to the working woman and specialized in cute clothes for work. I decided to try SuitableYou and see if they could send me some nice additions to my closet.

First of all, what is Suitable You?
  • SuitableYou is a company that sends you 5 things at a time based on a style profit you complete. There is a $20 styling fee, and you get that credited toward your total if you buy 3 or more things. You also get a 10% discount if you keep 3-4 items, and a 20% discount if you keep all 5. You try everything on in the comfort of your own home, and send back what you don’t want in a pre-paid shipping envelope.
  • The style profile takes you through your physical features such as height, weight, and body type and then moves on to what your style preferences are. I personally like looser fitting tops with fitted pants. You can also go through color and pattern preferences, jewelry, and shoes. You have the option of receiving a box monthly or every few months. You can skip a month (or more) in between, too, if you want. 
  • I like that the stylist includes a note in the package advising how you can style the things she’s included for you, which can be helpful if they’re different styles than you’re used to.
SO I was super excited to come home from work today after a crazy hectic week to this present to myself of new goodies to be opened, tried on, and reviewed! Let’s dive in.

Lysse Madison Black Pants ($65) – RETURN

First up were the Lysse Madison Black Pants. The material of these was AMAZING, they felt like yoga pants. They slid on like them, too. However, that was a draw back for me. I like my work pants to have a zipper and button closure. For me, that’s more comfortable as I feel more professional that way. I was swayed by the comfort of these pants, though, because they were incredibly comfortable. They did have a seam down the front that I wasn’t crazy about either, which for $65 I couldn’t justify keeping them when I already have 2 pairs of high quality black dress pants from Express and The Limited.

M. Rena Black reversible V-neck and Scoop Tank ($34) – RETURN

Next up was the M. Rena Black reversible V-neck and Scoop Tank. This one was also incredibly comfortable. The material was very stretchy and almost silky feeling. It could be worn either way to be a V-neck top or a scoop neck. I knew before I tried it on that I wouldn’t be keeping it, as it was just a plain black tank top which I couldn’t justify spending $34 on, no matter how comfortable it was. Maybe if it had some detail to it. Comfort was the theme so far, though! Which is wonderful for work as I’m sitting all day and I don’t want my clothing to be restricting at all.

Lumiere Felicia Front Key Hole/Pleated Blouse ($42.50) – KEEP!

This top took the cake. I loved it as soon as I saw it, and knew I was going to keep it. It’s the exact style that I love. I am a huge fan of long sleeves because I’m always cold. It’s a neutral color, so it goes with anything, which I love. The key hole detail in the front and the pleats keep it from just being a boring white blouse. When I first put it on, my boyfriend said, “that looks expensive!”, which to me is a good thing because it looks high quality. It also feels great on and is a silky, slinky material. It is very long, so I will probably get it tailored. But otherwise, the fit is great and I can’t wait to wear it next week.

FRNCH Gloria Blazer ($75.99) – RETURN

I asked for a blazer, and my wish was granted! The only bad thing was that the sleeves were too short. It was a very nice blazer, thick and high quality. I have a black blazer from Express, but am always open to more. Comfort is the main thing I look for in my work clothes since I’m in them for the majority of the day. Sometimes I find blazers to be restricting and therefor I always wear cardigans. I used to have to wear a suit every day, so having the ability to wear a cardigan over a blazer is nice. But I am still a big fan of blazers incorporated outside of work with jeans, so I’m hoping to add a few more to my collection. Sadly, this FRNCH blazer was not one to be added.

Lush Lavender Nadia Blouse ($41) – RETURN

I had such mixed feelings about this blouse. On one hand, I absolutely loved the feel of the material, I loved the color, and I loved the neck line with the key hole V-neck. Then I put it on and it was just a huge NOPE. It was too short for me and was almost a belly shirt. The sleeves were the most confusing part about the shirt, though. They belled out wide, but had straps around the outside to tie the sleeves close. The style note said the bell sleeves were trendy right now, or I could wear the top with a blazer and let the strings hang out. I tried both looks and neither looked right AT all. If the sleeves were like the Lumiere blouse, I would have kept it in a heartbeat! I was hoping I would like it but it just didn’t work out.

Even though I only kept one article out of this shipment, the one I did keep was a definite win. The even better upside of this top was that because this was my first box, SuitableYou was offering a fall promotion for first timers. I got $25 off my total, so I only paid $17.50 for that top! Incredible deal if you ask me.

One of the wonderful things is the website offers a place to paste your Pinterest page so that the stylists can get an idea of what you like.  My Pinterest has a few fashion boards on it: one is casual fashion for what I like for weekends, one is work fashion, and the last is my personal closet to keep track of my own outfits. Mine offers a look into what I wear to work (those are the only outfits I put on there) so it really helps them add to what I already have. My next box is scheduled to be delivered in about a month and I look forward to seeing what the next round will bring!
