When I first heard about Trunk Club, I knew it wouldn’t be long before I caved and subscribed. If you don’t know about the personal shopping service that ships roughly 11 pieces directly to your doorstep for free every month, then brace yourself, girlfriend. It’s awesome.
Now you’re probably like, “Okay, but how does this work?”
Simply sign up on their website, and Trunk Club will pair you with a professional stylist who will set up a call with you to answer your questions, and get a sense of your personal style and budget. Seriously, have you ever had a stylist before? I haven’t, and I can tell you, it’s the coolest thing ever.
Before you hop on the phone though, I’d recommend doing a little bit of closet inventory. Do you have a million blouses but only one pair of jeans you’ve had since high school? Then add some denim to your list of must haves. Maybe you’re set when it comes to your weekend wardrobe but don’t have enough for the office. Whatever your needs may be, know that Trunk Club’s got your back.
My stylist Jena made the entire experience so easy (and fun!). I’m really lacking in the professional wardrobe department, so Jena pulled a pair of cropped high-waisted trousers, some blouses, a couple of dresses, and a fringe sweater and pretty lace romper just for fun. Oh, and she knocked it out of the park in the accessories department with textured Topshop booties, a Kendra Scott bracelet and this Kate Spade bag (I’m already anticipating separation anxiety).
Unlike other similar subscription services, Trunk Club ships your Trunk to your door free of charge each month, which means you only pay for the items you keep. Did I mention Trunk Club is a fully owned subsidiary of Nordstrom? You know, just in case you weren’t convinced yet.

I didn’t like everything in this trunk (the fringe sweater wasn’t really my cup of tea, not to mention it was itchy af), but I’m loving the cobalt blue dress for work and the romper is a fun staple to have.
So, would I recommend Trunk Club to a friend? Absolutely. It takes the effort out of shopping and it’s fun to see what someone else picks for you, even if you don’t love everything, every time.
