Hello and welcome back for a brand new Wantable Style Edit review! I knew it had been a while since I ordered a Style Edit to share with you on the blog, but I had no idea just how long it had been. I just looked back at our archives and saw that the last time I reviewed a Style Edit was two years ago – back in February of 2019. Back then, I was only a few weeks pregnant with Harvey and Dessa was a one-year-old! It’s crazy to look back on that post because so much has changed in our lives since then. I suspect that a lot has changed for Wantable as well – because the box that I reviewed back then wasn’t exactly the greatest. But the Style Edit I’m sharing with you today is so, so good and was a joy to try on from start to finish.

A Really Quick Introduction to Wantable
If you’ve never heard of Wantable or don’t quite know how it works, here’s a really quick overview of the service. Wantable is an online styling service that’s very similar to Stitch Fix. They offer two different style shipments for women: a Style Edit and an Active Edit. Men’s Active Edits are also available through Wantable. In the past, I had only tried the Style Edit, but I ordered my first-ever Active Edit this winter and was very impressed by the style and quality of clothes that came in my shipment.
It’s FREE to create a Wantable account and get started. When you are ready, you can schedule your first Active Edit or Style Edit, and your personal stylist will hand-pick 7 items and ship them directly to your door. You have five days to try everything on, check out online, keep what you love, and return any unwanted items. Shipping returns and exchanges are free. And if you decide to keep 5 or more items from your Edit, you will automatically save 20% on your purchase.
There are a few things I really love about Wantable, and one feature that they handle exceptionally well is the ability they give customers to discover and request specific items for an upcoming Edit. You see, Wantable has a feature on their website called the “Stream”, which allows customers to scroll through a virtual catalog of the clothes available through their service. You can scroll through the Stream at your leisure and request or decline each item as you scroll. I honestly think my use of the Stream is why my first-ever Active Edit was such a good one, and I want to try to make more use of the Stream feature for upcoming Style Edits.
There’s a lot to love about the Stream as a customer, but I especially love it as a blogger. Why? Because I can personally link to every single item I try on in my Wantable reviews and share links to those exact items in the Stream for you. That way, if you see me try on an item that you love, you can click the link in my post, hop over to Wantable, and request it in your next shipment. This is 1000x better than the old-school way of pinning clothes you love, then crossing your fingers and hoping that your stylist will send it your way. I linked all of today’s clothes in the Wantable Stream for you, and I hope it makes your experience as a Wantable customer better than ever.

Niles Pullover Sweater from Sadie and Sage
I’ve been wanting to add another sweater to my closet and I was thrilled to see the Niles Pullover Sweater from Sadie and Sage ($59) in my Wantable Style Edit this month. The color of this sweater was just my style, and I loved the subtle pop from the sweater’s multicolor threads. I didn’t adore the neckline on the sweater because it had a slight scoop and I prefer a more typical crew neckline on sweaters, but the sweater was very comfortable so I was very willing to live with it.
The Niles Pullover Sweater was very roomy and provided enough coverage to wear with a pair of leggings. I wore it with a chunky necklace (similar), my Rothy’s flats, and the pair of black denim that came in my Wantable box. I’ll be sure to tell you all about the jeans in a minute.
This was around the time that Dessa saw me using the tripod and camera remote to take photos for this post and she wanted to help. She really is the best little assistant.
Now back to the sweater … even though the Niles Pullover Sweater would be a great cozy option to wear at home, I wanted to experiment with dressing it up a bit. The whole outfit changed just by tucking the sweater into my jeans and it was such a great look. The only thing I regret was not slipping into my black Rothy’s Point shoes. That would have made the outfit feel even much more special.
High Rise Skinny with Cut Hem from Just Black
Now that we’ve discussed the sweater, I have got to tell you about these High Rise Skinny with Cut Hem from Just Black ($64). I loved these jeans so much. They were soft, comfortable, and incredibly flattering. They weren’t skin tight but had a clean, tailored fit and I loved the raw hem detail. There wasn’t anything not to like about these jeans, and they were a big reason that the outfits I created with the rest of my Wantable Style Edit looked so fabulous.
I wore the High Rise Skinny with Cut Hem jeans for my entire try-on, plus a few more hours around the house just to make sure they were a good fit without too much stretch. This particular pair was a size 27 and though it fit true-to-size, it was just a smidge too tight. I was planning to exchange the jeans for a larger size, but they didn’t have a different size in stock at Wantable. At that point, I had a huge internal debate about whether or not to keep the jeans. I’ve lost 10 pounds in the past few months thanks to Burn Fat and Feast and am planning to drop another 5 pounds. I can tell that I’ve lost inches around my waist in that time and it seems logical that the size 27 jeans will fit more comfortably in another month or so, but the responsible thing to do was return them to Wantable since I can’t predict the future and it seems silly to intentionally buy a new pair of jeans in a size that I know is too small. Regrettably, these jeans went back to Wantable.
I searched all over the internet for this exact pair of jeans and was only able to find them on Social Threads. They are sold out in almost every size, but I signed up for email notifications so I can buy a pair in a larger size if they restock. I also found this pair of jeans from Just Black that has a more dramatic raw hem, but is fully in stock and might be a great option.
Textured Waffle Long-Sleeved Boatneck Top from W. BY WANTABLE
The next item I tried on from my Wantable Style Edit was a dark blue Textured Waffle Long-Sleeved Boatneck Top from W. BY WANTABLE ($78). I kept on those fabulous Just Black jeans, threw on my Rothy’s Chelsea Boots, and added the top for an easy, put-together look that had me yearning for warmer days when I can throw on a jacket and take the kids to the park without having to bundle up from head to toe.
As for the Textured Waffle Long-Sleeved Boatneck Top, I was shocked at how much I liked the shirt. I’m normally not a huge fan of waffle knit. I don’t dislike the knit, but it typically has me wishing I was wearing something heavier (like a sweater). This particular top was a great length and had a flattering fit with pretty good coverage in the front and back. I added a black puffer vest (similar) for a little extra warmth, along with my black Sperry Saltwater boots and the silver initial necklace Rob got me for Christmas. I loved the entire ensemble.
Tie-Dye Beanie from Marley Design Works
As much as I loved this Wantable Style Edit, there was one item inside that I really didn’t care for at all: a blue Tie-Dye Beanie in Dark Blue from Marley Design Works ($26). I’m not a big hat person in general, and this particular hat was a little too out there for me. I usually throw on a hat when I take the kids outside to play because it’s so dang cold outside in Michigan, but my taste in hats is exactly like the rest of my style preferences: I like neutral, solid colors in a classic style.
I appreciated the matching potential with the blue waffle-knit top; but I can barely get on board with a tie-dye shirt, let alone a hat. This look was pretty cute, but it felt too trendy and youthful for my taste. The hat was definitely going back to Wantable.
Nora Top from NLT
When I first previewed the plain black Nora Top from NLT ($54) in my Wantable Style Edit, I was a little turned off and definitely not excited at all. After all, it looked pretty basic and boring. You can imagine my shock when I tried on the Nora Top and absolutely fell in love. I have long arms and the sleeves were a little shorter than I like, and the top itself had a slightly cropped look to it. But the proportions of the Nora Top looked so chic with the Just Black jeans and my Sperry boots. I also added a simple Kendra Scott necklace and my Kate Spade watch (similar) to dress the look up a bit.
The fabric of the Nora Top felt sort of like a heavier-weight performance material and offered a little more warmth than I expected. I absolutely planned to keep the top along with the jeans until I saw that the jeans weren’t available in my size. I don’t think I have any other pants that will nail this look as perfectly as these jeans and this is the kind of shirt that needs to be part of a perfect outfit for me, otherwise, it would just end up unworn in the back of my closet. Even though it pained me to do so, I ultimately sent the Nora Top back to Wantable.
Long Puffer Vest From Bobeau
I like animal prints in small doses, so I didn’t really know what to think when I tried on the Long Puffer Vest from B Collection by Bobeau ($78). It was cute, but it was a lot of animal print. I slipped the vest on over the top of the Nora Top and Just Black jeans. The slim silhouette of my base outfit perfectly complemented the shape of the puffer vest and it looked great with the solid black top and jeans.
I liked the longer style of the puffer vest, which put a fun twist on a classic style. The vest itself was very lightweight and didn’t add a ton of warmth, which meant that it was best suited for style, rather than warmth. I kept going back and forth about the animal print and my feelings overall. In the end, I decided it was a little too much print for my more conservative style and returned the Long Puffer Vest to Wantable.
I looked online and saw the Long Puffer Vest is available in a few different colors and styles – including solid black and a muted rose color. All of which are on sale for around $30 – including the animal print that I tried on. Click any of the images below to get it on sale!
Monica Jogger from Tart Intimates
I was having so much fun trying on the clothes for this Wantable Style Edit review, I was sad to see that there was only one item left: a light gray Monica Jogger from Tart Intimates – small ($78). I kept on the Nora Top for one last hurrah and paired it with the joggers.
These pants were good. They were warm, soft, and super-comfy. I also appreciated the light neutral color that would basically match any of my favorite tops for lounging. Best of all, the cut of the joggers was very flattering – slightly tailored without being too tight. I was definitely tempted to keep the pants, but I already have one pair of joggers (also gray) from a previous Trunk Club shipment that I don’t use often enough. I’ve learned that I prefer leggings as my go-to comfy pant to wear around the house. I might prefer the look of a t-shirt and joggers when the weather finally warms up now, but for now, I plan to stick with my usual leggings. Even though these pants checked all the boxes, they were going back to Wantable.
I always try to find exact matches to the clothes I try on from style boxes and share links to those items in my blog posts. I couldn’t find just the pants, but I was able to find a Monica jogger 2-piece set online for half the price. I can’t say whether the pants are exactly the same, but the name of the jogger set is a good indication that they might be!
What I Kept and Returned from my Wantable Style Edit
This month’s Wantable Style Edit was a great one and was such a joy to review for you. I could have easily kept everything from this shipment (except for the hat) and if I had kept more of the clothes, I would have saved 20% for purchasing 5 or more items. It’s always fun to splurge on new clothes, but I decided to conserve my Wantable credits so I can enjoy more clothes from future Style Edits. Here’s a quick recap of what I kept and returned this month.
Niles Pullover Sweater in Multi from Sadie and Sage ($59) – KEEP
High Rise Skinny with Cut Hem from Just Black ($64) – return
Textured Waffle Long-Sleeve Boatneck Top from W. BY WANTABLE ($78) – KEEP
