Fall Essentials with Trunk Club Womens

A while back I wrote about Trunk Club and am partnering with them again for Fall! They offer a personalized styling service under which you can request a trunk of pieces curated for you whenever you'd like, with free shipping & returns. It's great if you need a wardrobe refresh, have special events coming up, or just want a few new seasonal pieces once in a while. There's a $25 home try-on fee per trunk that is credited towards any items you decide to purchase from your trunk, and you get to preview online what your stylist selects for you and provide feedback before it ships. I sometimes hear from women who aren't having luck with personal stylists, and have to say it's important to be assertive in your feedback about what you did/didn't like and budget, etc. However, also keep an open mind on styles outside your comfort zone, since you might be pleasantly surprised by how something looks once you put it on!

In addition to their online service, Trunk Club also has a few brick-and-mortar clubhouses around the country where you can schedule in-person styling sessions. The clubhouses are gorgeous with spacious fitting rooms, and you can bring a friend, too (bonus: sip beverages together and get free hemming on purchases). Recently while in NYC, I decided to pop into a clubhouse there and finally meet my stylist Zoey, who put together my last box!
Trunk Club New York Clubhouse I told Zoey I wanted layering jackets for Fall and new, non-ripped dark denim to replace some oldies that no longer fit me right. A good pair of skinnies that hit right at the ankle is super versatile and can be the foundation of outfits year-round. I like my skinny jeans to feel stretchy like leggings, but with the thickness of denim and with good resiliency. She pulled a few denim brands I already know and love but also introduced me to DL1961, which I often hear about but have never tried.

I learned that DL1961 is apparently all about fabric technology and construction, and their patented material has 4-way stretch and promises "98% shape retention" ... music to the ears of anyone tired of stretched-out, baggy knees and saggy bums!  Zoey swears by their jeans as her staple skinnies, and said they're great for movement and comfort without stretching out. I'm trying on a sz 23 ankle jean above (sized down) which fit like a glove with lots of holding power, and the length was also petite-friendly. I ended up keeping a darker gray pair of DL1961 jeans, and got them hemmed about 2" to hit right below my ankle.trunk club womens equipment floral blouse
For Fall jacket staples, my stylist pulled a range of pieces for me to try on, including this higher-end cognac Joie leather jacket alongside budget-friendly Blank NYC pieces. The olive one I purchased is like a cross between a structured moto jacket and a drapey cardigan, combining the best of both worlds. A regular xs fits pretty narrow throughout and is just about 2" long in the sleeves on me. Like last time, the pieces I tried on ranged in label size (i.e. 23 - 25 for denim) with both petite and regular sizing, but the actual fit of each item was fairly consistent. I love that their stylists know whether each brand and style runs big or small to spare frustration and save time for shoppers!blank nyc olive jacket dl1961 emma jeans
Thank you to Trunk Club for partnering on this post!

  3. Normally you and Wendy look nothing alike but in your first shot, I actually did a double take thinking she was guest posting here :) Aside from that, as usual, I love your picks. I'll have to remember Trunk Club for when I need a wardrobe refresh.

  4. I had a really good experience with Trunk Club as well. Discovered some great finds! I also recently purchased Blank NYC's olive jacket and it's one of my fall staples now. I can't wait for Trunk Club to open a brick-and-mortar in SF!

  12. Are these jeans midrise? Also are they comfortable? I am on the lookout for jeans which are of a soft material that is comfortable.

    1. If you like midrises that are super comfortable check out the DL1961 Florence.

    2. I think they are considered regular to mid-rise, and yes comfortable. I will have to give Alana's recommendation for the Florence cut a try!

  13. That seems like a great service! So often people have trouble shopping or are too lazy to do so and this way it's much easier to find clothes they like.

  15. Your outfits are just too cute! I myself am petite but I have so much trouble finding tops/outerwear that look nice on me because I am big chested and have a really wide back. Love the flower blouses you are wearing! http://www.justunderpetite.com/

  16. Love this look, perfect for autumn!

  18. I saw your last post on Trunk Club and couldn't wait to try it. I mentioned your website, gave the stylist pictures of clothes in your post, said I also needed professional clothes for work, and when asked said my style was chic casual. I couldn't wait to receive my trunk but so SO disappointed. It was summer (and I live in the South) and received t-shirts and leggings. Seriously? When asked why I didn't keep anything, I gave the same comments. Their response was they didn't have a good selection of items.

    1. Hi Ronda - Thank you for letting me know about your experience and I am so sorry to hear that. How frustrating! I wonder if it was due to an inexperienced stylist. Were you able to preview the items and provide feedback before the trunk shipped?

  19. Please can you tell me the color of DL1961 Emma Jeans that you have on with Joie jacket? Also a link to the top.

    1. Hi fellow (ex) DTer! THanks for your suggestion - I'll keep it in mind for future posts! To be honest I mostly wear mine the same way each time, very simply just with a longer blouse or sweater and ankle booties or tall boots.

  30. Loved the jeans on you so much that I bought a pair. The size 23 fit great on day 1. By day 2 they were saggy in the but. I think they fit more like a 24, just in case anyone else is planning on ordering.
