Fashion clubs are online shopping websites that provide users with exclusive styles every month. These personalized styles are based on fun fashion surveys. All of the clubs are membership sites where members pay a monthly subscription, and in turn, each item in your personalized collection will cost the same amount as your monthly subscription. They can be a great deal because many of the styles can be found at other locations but for a greater price. The fashion clubs also have extensive teams of stylists and shopping experts that make sure that the sites are always on trend, and so are you!
Many of the styles that you see in the fashion clubs' inventory can be found at other shops and online stores at a higher price. This is why joining a fashion club may save you money in the long run. For a guaranteed flat fee you can choose from a large selection of fashions. You even save with free shipping - something most online stores charge for. Having a fashion club subscription is also a great way to keep up with the latest trends, as the clubs are constantly featuring different look books and collections influenced by the season as well as celebrities. The fashion clubs have extensive teams of stylists and shopping experts that make sure that the sites are always on trend.
Most of the items in the fashion club collections are the brand of the respective club. For example, most of the shoes on the ShoeDazzle site are branded "ShoeDazzle". However, sometimes they will have shoes from other designers - one of our editors got a pair of MIA sandals, for example. JustFabulous has many items labeled "WhoWhatWear", which is an online fashion magazine that provides tips on how to incorporate trends seen in celebrity and runway looks into real-life outfits. The founders of WhoWhatWear are also style experts on the JustFabulous team. Jewelmint's jewelry is "Jewelmint" brand and designed by Kate Bosworth herself, along with her friend, stylist Cher Coulter. Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen designed all of the shirts featured on Stylemint.
Each of these fashion clubs was started by a celebrity. ShoeDazzle was founded by fashionista Kim Kardashian, JustFabulous is headed by Baby Phat designer Kimora Lee Simmons, and Jewelmint can be attributed to actress Kate Bosworth. Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen founded Stylemint and designed all of the shirts. Each of these celebrities have a large influence over the style in the fashion club collections. They also have fashion tips and favorites all over their sites. Check it out!
Yes. The particular fashion club will provide you with return/exchange information.
Though the specifics vary from club to club, in general, if you decide that you don't want anything one month, you can sign into your account within the first five days of that month and select the Skip the Month option. This way, you will not be charged. On the other hand, if you do not choose an item or the Skip the Month option before the sixth day of each month, you will be charged your membership fee and receive one credit, which you can later redeem for an item. The great thing is that you will never be shipped an item that you did not proactively select, even if you forget to click the "Skip the Month" option. As mentioned before in this case, you will simply have one credit that you can use to redeem for any item you want later on.
No! If anything, take the survey for fun and see what styles the fashion club has in store for you. You don't have to enter any credit card information until you find something you like and make a purchase.
A handful of our editors signed up for each fashion club and subscribed for 2 months, each buying at least 2 items. They completed style surveys for each of the clubs and rated the survey's fun factor, relevancy, and the accuracy of the resulting personalized showrooms. These factors combined are all part of the 'shopping experience' metric. We judged everything from the frequency of email notifications, delivery time, packaging, and most importantly, the product itself. We noted the item's quality, fit, feel, value, and how well it matched the online description. We also returned some of the items and judged the ease of the return process, cancellation process, and the quality of each fashion club's customer support. The average of each of the metrics' ratings result in the overall number of stars.
