The clothes are kind of low quality, and the styling was 50/50 in terms of whether it actually matched my style each shipment.

The clothing is interesting, but not anything that I wouldn't be able to find anywhere else. The algorithm takes a couple tries to get things correct and even then it's a hit or a miss.
Pricing, quality of item. Some items that are priced higher due to brand are about the same quality as something I could buy for cheaper. Also more eco friendly packaging would be nice.
I use StitchFix for my husband and he typically keeps 3+ pieces in each Fix. They do a pretty good job of reviewing your style picks and notes to match the user with pieces that will work. It's also helped him to get out of his basic outfit routine and try some new items. It's a very useful resource for someone that doesn't want to think about fashion or invest time in finding the right pieces. The quality of the items in each Fix have been good and generally work well with the pieces in previous Fixes to help build a wardrobe.
Sometimes the system doesn't pick up on notes. We mentioned several times we did not want any Henley tops and the stylist kept selecting them. But, we were able to reject them before the Fix was shipped - so crisis averted.
I used Stitchfix for two of my kids (both for a boy and a girl). For the boy (10 years old) everything chosen by the stylist was cute, comfortable and appropriate price-wise. For the girl (11 years old), the same clothes were sent three times in a row. The color of the shirt or leggings were different, but the style was exactly the same and the fabric was the same. The girls items were low quality (not well made) and not worth the money.
Love the concept of an online personal styling service, especially for people who don't really like to spend time shopping or want to try new styles. I enjoyed the surprise element of receiving clothes and getting to try them out!
Personally, I'm pretty particular about my clothes. In the three times I tried Stitchfix out, I hadn't found a piece I loved enough to want to keep. Another pain point was the relatively high price of each of the pieces compared to deals you could find online - there didn't seem to be any discounts on Stitchfix clothes.
Good interaction with virtual stylists and personalisation of the service
The range of clothing on offer and personalised pieces
My first box did not have any cute clothes in it. Non of it was my style.
Having stylists that actually read your profile.
This was a fun one-time experience for me, but I realized I am very picky with fashion and how things fit so StitchFix isn't for me. I would still recommend trying it for the first time for fun! It's cool to see what is selected for you, but ultimately, I only kept one thing after receiving two boxes.
