Stitch Fix Brands for Less

As I sit here writing this post about finding Stitch Fix Brands for Less I am thinking about my Stitch Fix journey. From discovering subscription box services to becoming a Stitch Fix addict (to the point of working as a Stitch Fix Stylist) to giving up Stitch Fix altogether (at least, I tell myself I have).

When I sit down to write, I do it with you, the reader in mind. So, I'm not going to sit here and tell you Stitch Fix is everything to everyone.

That doesn't mean I'm no longer recommending it. On the contrary, I owe much of my success as a jewelry stylist to Stitch Fix. And, in my humble opinion, it's still the best subscription box out there for finding modern styles to update your wardrobe. If you want to get out of a styling rut, try new things and get happy mail, this is the box for you. If you haven't tried it, you really should. In short, they send you 5 pieces of clothing and/or accessories (you fill out a profile with your sizes and preferences) tailored to you and keep what you like. Return what you don't, all for a low styling fee of $20. If you keep anything, the styling fees goes toward the price. I kept all 5 pieces in my first box and enjoyed an additional 25% off. If you decide to give it a go I hope you'll use my affiliate link.

I'm guessing, though, if you're reading this blog post it's because you've already tried Stitch Fix. Maybe, like me, you're looking for a place to buy more pieces from the brands you came to know and love through Stitch Fix. If this is the case, you're in luck! I've found a ton of places to shop Stitch Fix Brands online. 

I'm guessing this isn't news to you pros, but those that are new to this will appreciate the ability to find pieces by brand name, enjoy free shipping and returns for prime members, and the widest selection of anyone by far. You'll find Kut from the Kloth, Level 99, Liverpool, and Urban Expressions, to name just a few (follow my affiliate links to actual items I've seen from Stitch Fix).

The ever popular Diana jeans from Kut from the Kloth can be found on Amazon for a steal. I have a few pairs of the corduroy in this style, a rare 98% cotton 2% spandex blend. It can be a little tricky finding the exact styles you receive from Stitch Fix. For instance, Stitch Fix calls the corduroy "Jonathan" but to KFTK they are just another pair of Diana. Just try looking at the labels inside your favorite pieces for easy search.


T.J.Maxx

If you've ever shopped T.J.Maxx or Marshall's in person you may have come across the occasional top or pair of jeans from your favorite Stitch Fix brands, but it's so much easier to shop online. Unlike Amazon, you can't search by brand. They keep their prices at rock bottom by avoiding search by brand, and it's well worth the effort. I purchased a pair of Yosi Samra ballet flats from this site for $30 (link below to an exact pair Stitch Fix carries).
I see Adrianna Papell, Leota and Maggy London dresses Stitch Fix carries on this site all the time. Shipping is inexpensive (free over a certain amount) and returns can be made at local stores.

Boutiques

This one gets a little trickier, but the reward is great. Whenever possible, I try to support small business. My favorites that carry Stitch Fix brands are:

Tag 

Brands: Mystree, RD Style, Liverpool, Gilli
Perks: Free Shipping, returns with store credit, and an incredible Facebook community. If you love the mystery of Stitch Fix, you'll also occasionally see mystery boxes sold on this website. I bought a Mystree Mystery Box recently and received 3 amazing tops/sweaters for just $85 shipped. This is the only boutique of my 3 favorites that has a website you can shop outside of Facebook. I prefer the FB group, though, because you can see the pieces on real people and ask sizing questions.

This isn't from a Stitch Fix brand (it's 12pm by Mon Ami), but it reminds me so much of Pins I saw over and over as a stylist. And it's only $25! I also appreciate a larger variety of casual/knits from Tag than I ever received from Stitch Fix.



Off the Hanger 

Brands: Kut from the Kloth, Daniel Rainn, Renee C, Collective Concepts
Perks: Exact pieces Stitch Fix carries, accessories & shoes, too. $5 flat rate for shipping up to $75, free after. This is my favorite place to look for additional pairs of jeans in a fit I know and love, or look for Stitch Fix pieces I sent back because I couldn't afford them at the time. Sometimes Stitch Fix can't accommodate size exchanges, this is another reason I shop OTH.

I just bought a pleather jacket from Off the Hanger by RD Style. I got so many compliments the first time I wore it, including one from my 14 year old. I think you need one of these.

 

I'm wearing the Chloe + Isabel Souviens Collar Necklace with it, a match made in heaven.

The Style Palette

Brands: Skies are Blue, Gilli, Le Lis, THML
Perks: Free shipping and returns. Look-a-like pieces for a fraction of the price. Great place to buy cardigans. If you do Golden Tote, there are a ton of brands you see in their mystery totes, too.


If you are looking outside of Stitch Fix for variety, boutiques are a great way to find new brands, too. I just got this top by Kori America from The Style Palette and it's thick and soft. Great quality and for $32 shipped!

You'll see a good variety of boho, edgy, classic, romantic, athleisure, and glam options on all of these sites. They might lean a little toward boho, but you know I don't mind.

Perhaps you've found some alternative shopping sites yourself, I'd love it if you shared a link in the comments below. I'm almost certain I found these favorites by suggestion. Shopping is always better with friends!

Happy Shopping!

  1. I've used Shoptiques.com, which is a collection of many small boutiques. You can search by brand to see if any of the boutiques carry a particular item. I've also used via74.com which carries similar styles to Golden Tote.
