Spring Refresh with Trunk Club

I was recently asked to try Trunk Club‘s newer women’s styling service, and wanted to share my experience as someone who usually spends more time shopping due to fit challenges. I get daily messages from ladies requesting help with their shopping needs (ranging from picking out special occasion outfits, to helping with building an everyday wardrobe) – I am not a personal shopper myself, but think Trunk Club’s free service would be perfect for someone who is short on time or would like professional styling. After signing up online, I was matched with a stylist, Zoey, who reached out to chat about my style, body type, measurements, as well as anything either in general or in particular (ie. events or trips) that I was currently shopping for. I mentioned I generally love to mix high end + low end, and stressed the importance of fit on my shorter frame. I told her I’d love to see a mix of both classic and trendy pieces for a refresh on spring wardrobe basics.

There was a range of price points and pieces (along with mix-and-match pairing suggestions!) from classics like Equipment silk blouses and Rag & Bone jeans, to fast fashion items from Topshop and smaller labels I hadn’t seen before. What I especially appreciated was the range of sizing in my trunk (in both regular and petites) based on what Zoey knew about certain brands and specific pieces running bigger or smaller, longer or shorter – taking the guesswork out of gauging size when shopping online. After receiving a trunk, you get 10 days to try on your items at home and only pay for what you want to keep, with free shipping both ways. There is no stylist fee, and it’s not a subscription service so you only request a trunk from your stylist whenever you want one.

Here are some of the items I tried on from my trunk, including a Topshop striped tee, Paige jeans, and Joie jacket – all in a range of sizing that each fit my frame well:

Trying on a few more pieces from my trunk – I had asked for classic denim short options that were casual but at a modest length with cuffs:

My favorite piece in my trunk has to be a pair of Rag & Bone jeans (worn below) that I likely would’ve never found on my own. The stock photo for this style & wash looks very different online, but in-person it’s a weathered vintage blue wash that I strive for when denim shopping (and had mentioned to my stylist). They are actually labeled capris but Zoey guessed they’d fit my shorter legs perfectly as regular jeans, and she was spot-on about that down to the distressing placement.

For those who live in NYC, Dallas, Chicago, LA or DC, Trunk Club also has physical clubhouse locations where you can set up a time to try on all the items your stylist pulled for you in-person. Something that I thought was really awesome is they offer free basic alterations on items you decide to purchase at your sessions. Thank you to Trunk Club for partnering on this post!

    I have used Trunk Club, they are such a time saver and great service! I loved being able to get such personalized shopping service without the cost of a personal shopper. I got new items I may not have picked out on my own but ended up loving. I especially love that lime Equipment blouse, looks great with the faded/ripped jeans. I may have to steal that look for this spring!

    great post! Love the green top, Equipment blouses tend to be so long, just wondering if you had the length of your tailored? And is this the slim fit?

    I tried trunk club and did not have a great experience. First box, nothing fit. They abruptly switched me from my first stylist to a new stylist who did not select items that fit me. She included brands that were totally off-base for my style like Cupcakes and Cashmere, which is a little too juvenile for me. She also put items in like high-heels and jeans, which I specifically requested to be excluded from the box. I'm somewhat disappointed to hear that you found items that actually fit you because between my two stylists could not find items that fit. Sorry Trunk Club, you lost a customer.

    I love your style! I have never brought anything from Ann Taylor before so can you please tell me your size?

    Hi Jean,

    Would you be able to tell me where you got the lime equipment blouse? It looks gorgeous!

    Thank you!

    Hi Jean! I'm thinking of buying a pair of the Murray capris but I find when I purchase jeans in my usual size, they end up stretching and become so loose during the day that it doesn't maintain its shape. What is your experience with these jeans?
