New School Year Stitch Fix

I always request a Stitch Fix delivery before the new school year because I love to find a new outfit for the first day. Last year, I kept a shirt from my August Stitch Fix but I saved it for later in the school year. I just wore another outfit I already had for the first day of school. Hopefully, I will have better luck this year.

Find clothes for the new school year by having a Stitch Fix stylist send them directly to your door!

If you’re not familiar with Stitch Fix, it’s a personal styling service. A personal stylist will choose clothing just for you and deliver it directly to your doorstep. Here’s how to get set up.

  • Go to the Stitch Fix website, and sign up.
  • Complete your style profile. You can even create a special Pinterest board just with styles you like. That will really help your stylist visualize perfect outfits for you. You can also write a special note to your stylist requesting specific items you need. Another great feature is that you can select the price range where you’re comfortable.
  • Choose a date to have your fix delivered. You can choose how often you want to receive a new fix. Right now, I get them every other month. However, it’s really easy to change that or skip a fix.
  • When your fix is delivered, try on the five pieces of clothing. Decide what you love and want to keep and what to send back. You have three business days to make up your mind. Then, just put any clothing you’re returning in the bag that is provided by Stitch Fix. Postage is paid, so just drop it in a mailbox or take it to the post office.  Returns are so easy!
  • Finally, sign into your Stitch Fix account, and let them know what you’re keeping and what you’re sending back. You can also leave feedback, so your next fix is even more personalized for you. You will only be charged for the items you keep. There is a $20 styling fee, but it is applied to anything you buy.

Now that you know how Stitch Fix works, let’s look at what I received in my latest fix.

New School Year Stitch Fix

The day my fix arrives is always exciting! I can’t wait to see what my personal stylist picked out for me.

After carefully opening the box, the first thing I found was a note from my stylist and the styling cards that show two ways to wear each item. I realized I had the same stylist from my last fix, Janina. She did a great job choosing summer clothes for my June Stitch Fix. I was eager to see what she had found for the new school year.

Juliana Printed Faux Leather Flat by MIA

One of the new school year styles I received in my Stitch Fix was the Juliana Printed Faux Leather Flat by MIA.

A while ago, Stitch Fix added shoes, jewelry, and bags to their inventory. I received a necklace in my April Stitch Fix and a bag in my June Stitch Fix. This was the first time I received a pair of shoes.

I really liked that the shoes were flats, since that’s what I wear most of the time for teaching. The pattern was pretty, too. The white and black matches a lot in my closet. However, they were a little too big, and the toes were just too pointy. They pinched and wouldn’t have made it past lunch on a school day.

Therefore, I sent them back.

Krisy Surplice Blouse by Q & A

Another new school year style I received in my Stitch Fix was the Krisy Surplice Blouse by Q & A.

The next item I pulled from the box was the Krisy Surplice Blouse. I really liked the pink color of this top. When I put it on, the neckline was very pretty. However, the bottom was too loose. I prefer my tops a little more fitted.

I decided to send this shirt back.

Yiles Printed Kimono by Paradigma

One of the new school year styles I received in my Stitch Fix was the Yiles Printed Kimono by Paradigma.

As soon as I pulled the Yiles Printed Kimono from the box, I knew I wouldn’t be keeping it. This type of shirt just isn’t my style. I put the kimono on over the Krisy Surplice Blouse, since I was already wearing it.

The colors in the kimono were really pretty, but I didn’t like the pattern. I also didn’t like the way it fit. It just hangs down, and I like tops that are more fitted.

I sent it back.

Maybell Lace Detail Skirt by Renee C and the Ophir Crochet Detail Knit Tank by Papermoon

One of the new school year styles I received in my Stitch Fix was the Maybell Lace Detail Skirt by Renee C.

If there’s one thing I love from Stitch Fix, it’s the skirts. They always fit perfectly around the waist and are a great length for work. I kept the Leena Printed Skirt by Renee C in my February Stitch Fix and the Abbie Reversible Skirt by 41Hawthorn from my July Stitch FixWhen I pulled the Maybell Lace Detail Skirt from my fix, I was excited to see if I loved it as much as the others.

Janina sent the Ophir Crochet Detail Knit Tank to wear with the skirt, so I tried them on together. Once again, the skirt fit perfectly. I loved the pattern and the length. The detail on the top of the shirt is so pretty, and it looked great with the skirt.

I decided to keep both the skirt and the top. Yay! I found my outfit for the first day of school!

Final Thoughts

When I left feedback at checkout, I told Janina that I wasn’t a fan of the style of the shoes or the kimono. I also mentioned that I would like to see some tighter-fitting tops. Hopefully, that will help her choose items I love for my next fix.

I am very happy with the pieces I kept, and I can’t wait to wear my new outfit for the first day of school!

  1. I really wish we could get Stitch Fix here in South Africa, it sounds so convenient and having a personal stylist would work wonders for my wardrobe. Love the back to school outfit you chose Tara, it suits you beautifully

  2. Tara, I’m always excited to see your Stitch Fix posts, I love that you try on all the clothing and get pictures so that we can see the fit. I loved the shoes but I could tell in the picture that they were too big! Bummer.

    I really love the outfit that you kept, it looks great on you and I hope that it helps to ease you into your first day. Great picks!

  3. Tara, you make Stitch Fix sound so fun. I might have to try them out…sounds easy, and I don’t like to shop.
    I like the dress & top you chose. If it was me, I wouldn’t go for the shoes either…those pointy toes would be a deal breaker for me, but looks like you got a cute outfit to start the year off right.

    1. Stitch Fix definitely makes shopping easy, Florence! There’s no way I would have made it through a school day with those shoes, though. The outfit worked out really well for the first day.

  4. I’m super intrigued by Stitch Fix, especially now after this review. I don’t really get out to go shopping much anymore with a toddler and another on the way. So, it would be great to have someone else do it for me! Personally, I love the shoes that they sent you, and I’m bummed that they didn’t work for you. I also loved the kimono, and thought it looked great on you. The outfit that you chose was perfect though!
