I would highly recommend trying both to see which best fits your lifestyle and preferences. Keep reading to see how you can try Stitch Fix and Frank and Oak at a discounted styling fee!
What is Stitch Fix?
Stitch Fix is a personal styling service for women (including plus, petite and maternity), men, and kids. Stitch Fix utilizes an algorithm to help narrow down selections from their inventory based on your style profile, preferences and previous purchases. A personal stylist then picks the final items that are sent to you. While you can preview the items in the Stitch Fix app once they ship, you cannot make any changes before receiving your Fix. You can keep or return as many items as you like. You can receive as many Fixes as you want and as often as you want.
What is the Frank and Oak Style Plan?
The Frank and Oak Style Plan is a monthly clothing subscription. When you subscribe to Style Plan, their stylists pick seasonal pieces based on your personal preferences and ship them every month. You can try on the items from the comfort of your own home, and pay for only those you decide to keep. As a Style Plan member, you also benefit from exclusive member pricing (up to 20% off) and free standard shipping site-wide at all times.
Cost of Stitch Fix vs. Frank and Oak
Stitch Fix: Stitch Fix charges a $20 styling fee for each Fix. You are sent 5 items, with the average price being about $55. If you buy any items from your Fix the $20 styling fee will be applied to your purchase. If you keep all 5 items, you will receive an additional 25% off your entire Fix. Shipping and returns are free. You can skip or cancel anytime.
In my experience most tops and blouses are usually around $68 and jeans around $88. If you are a client at a lower price point, then you can receive tops around $38 and jeans around $68.
Frank and Oak: Frank and Oak doesn’t charge a monthly fee. However, Frank & Oak charges a $25 styling fee if you return the entire box. Otherwise, you just pay for what you keep from the box. As a Style Plan member, you also benefit from exclusive member pricing (up to 20% off) and free standard shipping site-wide at all times. Prices range from $29-$149. You can skip or cancel anytime.

Stitch Fix vs. Frank and Oak: My Review & Experience
I would say that Stitch Fix and Frank and Oak are two very different styling services. Stitch Fix focuses more on “fast fashion” and trendier looks and prints. Frank and Oak is focused on sustainable fashion and core wardrobe pieces that will last.
Stitch Fix is more fun because you have the element of surprise if you don’t peek on the app. There’s also much more variety in the items and accessories so you don’t know what you will get. With Frank and Oak, the items are picked from their online store, and you see what they choose before you check out, so there isn’t much element of surprise.
Stitch Fix’s inventory is geared for a variety of styles, such as edgy, boho, and trendy, etc. However, Frank and Oak is really one style – classic and minimalist.
Stitch Fix vs. Frank and Oak: Which One?
I would recommend Stitch Fix for those who are interested in trendier looks, and getting new outfits each month. I would recommend Frank and Oak for those who are interested in building a capsule wardrobe with core pieces that can last.
I think it’s worth it to try both Stitch Fix and Frank and Oak at least once to find the styling service that best fits your needs and preferences. The great thing is that both Stitch Fix and Frank and Oak offer a referral program that allows you to try your first time at little cost to you.
