Trunk Club's subscription boxes lets you do that with the help of one of their expert stylists. How this works: Once you sign up for a box, you take a comprehensive survey which notes your personal preferences, type of clothes you need according to your lifestyle, sizes, brands you normally shop at, height and weight, and so on. What we really like though: there’s no obligation to purchase everything or membership fee. Simply return the items you don’t need, and pay for the rest. Price upon request.
