Can you believe that it has been an entire year since I shared a Stitch Fix review on the blog? I knew that it had been a while, but I hadn’t actually sat down to do the math and calculate exactly how long it has been. The last time I wrote about a Stitch Fix box was in March of 2020 – when Harvey was 5 months old and I was hoping to get the perfect dress for his baptism. It’s not that I’ve been avoiding Stitch Fix all this time. I just took a long break from fashion content when the world shut down last spring. Then, when I was ready to start sharing a little outfit inspiration, the clothes I bought and tried on were mostly fitness-related while I was losing weight and working to create a healthier lifestyle. Last month I found myself with a closet full of boring clothes (many of which have become too baggy on me) and a desperate desire to get out of my leggings rut. It seemed like the perfect time to order a Stitch Fix box and see what surprises my stylist had in-store and boy did she deliver!

Denver Front Twist Brushed Knit Top
The first item I tried on for my April Stitch Fix Review was a Denver Front Twist Brushed Knit Top from Market & Spruce ($38). Right away, there was so much to love about this simple top. The light blue stripes on white made it the perfect springtime color and instantly lifted my mood.
I loved the tailored fit of the top and the twist front was very flattering. On top of everything else, the brushed knit fabric was incredibly soft and comfortable and added a touch of light warmth for those cooler not-quite-summer days.
The Denver Front Twist Brushed Knit Top was not only cute, but also so much fun to style. I’m at home with the kids all the time, and it’s hard to find the motivation to dress in anything other than leggings and an old shirt. I wore the front twist top with a basic pair of Kut from the Kloth jeans (similar) that also came in my Fix, my Converse Shoreline sneakers (that I always pair with Sheec socks), and a Kendra Scott cuff bracelet. I also layered a white tank from Old Navy under the shirt for a little extra coverage. This was such a great outfit and I felt like the pre-pandemic version of myself when I tried it on. The Denver Front Twist Brushed Knit Top was a definite keeper!
RECREATE THE LOOK
Bhody Skinny High Rise Jeans
As fabulous as the twist front top was to try on, I have got to tell you about the Bhody Skinny High Rise Jeans from Kut from the Kloth ($96) that also came in my Fix. Many of my former pairs of jeans have become too big on me since I started losing weight, and I’m down to two pairs that fit semi-decent. Both jeans are a darker wash and I would love to own a lighter wash pair. You can imagine my excitement to try on the Bhody Skinny High Rise Jeans.
There was so much to love about these jeans. They were a perfect medium wash, great length, and not too skinny – which gave them a very relaxed fit without being too baggy. I so wanted to keep these jeans, but there was just one catch: the waistline. For some reason, Kut from the Kloth jeans always have too much fabric in the back of the waistband when I try them on and these jeans were no exception. I really liked these jeans and so wanted to keep them, but I haven’t achieved all of my fitness goals yet and it made zero sense to keep a pair of jeans with extra fabric in the back knowing that I stand to lose another inch or so in my midsection.
Luckily, Stitch Fix offers free exchanges and these jeans were available in a smaller size. I requested an exchange when I checked out online and crossed my fingers that the next pair would be a better fit. The smaller pair was still a little big in the back and the tightness from the smaller side actually made them more prone to sagging. Sadly, these jeans went back to Stitch Fix.
This particular pair of jeans had a tag that indicated it was a Stitch Fix Exclusive item. Yup, that’s a thing. Big brands often partner with Stitch Fix and release exclusive colors, denim washes, and styles of clothes that are only available through the styling service. I looked online for similar Kut from the Kloth jeans and found this pair with a much lower price tag. It’s true that jeans from this brand don’t quite fit my midsection, but I know lots of women who love Kut from the Kloth jeans.
Blakely Zip Up Hooded Brushed Knit Top
At this point, I was on a pretty good run with my April Stitch Fix review. I kept on the Kut from the Kloth jeans and changed into the Blakely Zip Up Hooded Brushed Knit Top from Market & Spruce ($44). Since the jean and white Converse shoe combination was working so well for me, I kept those items on, threw a basic white t-shirt (similar) over the layering tank and added the hoodie. This was another head-to-toe spring look that was just my style!
As for the Blakely Zip Up Hooded Brushed Knit Top, it was good! It was super-soft, lightweight, and warm. I also really liked the shade of purple. It wasn’t too dark, and would have easily been incorporated into my predominantly neutral-colored closet.
I debated long and hard about whether or not to keep the Blakely Zip Up Hooded Brushed Knit Top. It was super-cute, but there were a few other items in my Fix that I loved more and I didn’t want to drain my entire bank of Stitch Fix credit. I reluctantly returned the hoodie back to Stitch Fix.
RECREATE THE LOOK
Corinna Brushed Dolman Knit Top
This entire Stitch Fix box offered so many great options for spring – including a light blue tie-dye Corinna Brushed Dolman Knit Top from Market & Spruce ($38). You may recall from reading a recent Wantable try-on that I am not a fan of tie-dye. And yet, here I was once again trying on a cute tie-dyed item and trying to figure out just how strong my feelings were against the popular style.
Let’s just forget about the tie-dye print for a minute and focus on the actual top. The Corinna Brushed Dolman Knit Top was good. Much like the tie-front top I had tried on previously, the brushed knit of the fabric was incredibly soft and offered just a hint of extra warmth for a cool day. The shirt offered a perfect, flattering fit, and I loved the way the curved hemline hit my hips for a relaxed look.
At the end of the day, I’m still not a huge fan of tie-dye. Since the fit, feel, and color scheme of the Corinna Brushed Dolman Knit Top was so similar to the tie-front shirt I was already planning to keep, it made sense to just send this one back to Stitch Fix. The shirt was really cute – I just didn’t love it and I only keep the clothes from Stitch Fix that I absolutely love.
If you are loving the tie-dye trend and want to recreate a similar look, I’ve rounded up some similar tops. I know that tie-dye is all the rage right now and wish that I could love it as much as everyone else. I did eventually get on board with joggers (keep scrolling) so there is hope that I’ll get there one day.
RECREATE THE LOOK
Sunny Drawstring Jogger
The last item I tried on for my April Stitch Fix review was a dark blue pair of Sunny Drawstring Joggers from FP Movement ($48). I have tried on several pairs of joggers from style boxes in the past year or so and always decided to send them back. It’s not that I dislike joggers. I just don’t love them enough. I already have one pair that I kept from Trunk Club before the pandemic. They’re super comfortable, but a little too baggy. Fast forward to this month’s Stitch Fix box, when my stylist sent a pair of dark blue joggers my way that checked all the boxes for a good pair of casual pants.
These joggers were perfect. Soft. Comfortable. Not too baggy. Most importantly, dark enough that I can wear them outside while the kids play and will hide stains and dirt. I finally get why so many women love joggers. They’re every bit as comfortable as leggings but are much more laid back and you don’t have to worry about them becoming see-through when you bend over. As it turns out, all of the previous joggers I tried on were either too baggy or just so light-colored that I couldn’t envision myself wearing them with two messy kids under the age of 4.
Since I wasn’t keeping the tie-dye top, I tried on the Sunny Drawstring Joggers with a navy blue and white striped t-shirt from my own closet to make sure that I would still love the pants if I styled them with a shirt I already owned. Yup, definitely a keeper.
The Sunny Drawstring Joggers were a perfect fit for my wardrobe and lifestyle (although I tend to wear them with my Allbirds Tree Skippers far more often than my nice Converse shoes.) I loved them so much, I’m thinking of buying another pair. I could easily order a second pair directly through Stitch Fix, but these are made by Free People so I was pretty sure I could find them online. Sure enough, the same joggers are also available at Nordstrom.com and a few colors are even on sale for 40% off. The dark gray color is also marked down at Dillards.
