STITCH FIX KIDS: A STEP BY STEP GUIDE
Stitch Fix officially launched its new line of children’s clothes online today by the name Stitch Fix Kids just in time for back to school shopping. It’s technically not a kids clothing subscription box, but you can schedule clothing boxes for automatic delivery, or not. Totally dealer’s choice. I love that! Mad props to you, Stitch Fix, for giving us a choice!
I mean- maybe it’s just me- but I really despise the idea of flipping through rack after rack of picked over clothing in store after store trying to search for even one or two items that my child will say yes to wearing for the new school year. Maybe that’s your jam. I won’t judge, but I haaate it!
Not to mention that we always come home with several items we didn’t set out in the beginning of the day to buy.
I often get emails or messages from readers asking things like, “How can you support a company like Stitch Fix as a Minimalist?” Because of that reason right there! I ask for only what I need from my stylist, she sends me several options to try on in my own home where I can pair them with clothing I already own, and then I decide which items I’d like to purchase (or not) and simply send the returns back in the free mailer included in the box.
I love Stitch Fix for myself because my personal stylist knows me so well that I can literally tell her exactly which items I need in the note to my personal stylist and she delivers every. single. time. Can you imagine having that luxury for your kids, AND it being super affordable?
No, mama, I won’t pinch you. You aren’t dreamin’.
STITCH FIX KIDS HOW TO SIGN UP
When I received the email about the upcoming launch for Stitch Fix Kids, I immediately scheduled a box for each of my kids. The timing couldn’t be better with back to school shopping just around the corner, and I know from my own experience with Stitch Fix that the items they send will be stellar.
While I’m waiting on my kiddo’s boxes to be delivered I want to tell you exactly how you can schedule Stitch Fix Kids boxes for your own little ones to try.
First let’s cover the basics. (Not super boring basics, but basics that will make you say WOW I gotta give that a go!)
This info is coming directly from Stitch Fix. I’ve simply reworded it into my own voice.
– Sizes will range from 2T to kids size14, which Stitch Fix says typically covers ages 2-12 years old.
– Each Stitch Fix Kids box will include 8-12 items personalized to each kid’s sense of style. You’ll fill out a Style Profile on your child that details how clothing fits each child, styles you want to avoid (ahem- I’m looking at you spaghetti straps and short skirts), and colors or patterns that your child will or won’t wear. This helps your child’s personal stylist tailor each delivery to fit your child’s interests.
– Each box is curated to deliver head-to-toe looks.
– Prices will range from $10-$35 per item, depending on how you set your preferences in the Style Profile.
– Shipping, returns and exchanges are always free.
– Keep everything and you receive a 25% discount.
– No subscription is required. You can change your setting to automatic deliveries when you fill out the Style Profile, or just schedule a box anytime.
– Stitch Fix will offer a diverse range of styles to help kids feel confident in who they are. Both girls and boys clothing will be available to all kids clients, and are not gender specific. Gotta love their free-spirit, all inclusive attitude, amiright?
– Our collections will include an extensive selection of graphic tees, leggings, jeans, dresses, and more from well-known brands as well as items that are unique to Stitch Fix.
Yes, Stitch Fix! YES!!
You are speaking directly to my mama heart and relieving the huge burden of toting two bored toddlers from store to store in the heat of summer looking for something that seems to be a mirage in the clothing dessert where I currently live. Thank you!
Ready to try Stitch Fix Kids for yourself?
Step One: About your Child
First things first, you’ll enter your child’s name, age, your relationship to the child, and the gender of clothing your child wants to receive.
Next you’ll let Stitch Fix know your child’s interests and how often s/he likes to do those things.
The last thing you’ll do on page one is check some boxes that describe your child’s personality as well as the reasons for your interest in Stitch Fix Kids. This will help your child’s personal stylist choose items more aligned with your needs.
Step Two: Size and Fit
Let Stitch Fix Kids know how tall your child is, and how much they weigh to help your child’s stylist better choose styles to send your child.
Now let Stitch Fix Kids know if your child struggles with the fit of shirts or tops.
Let Stitch Fix Kids know if your child has any difficulties with the fit of pants or leggings.
Finally- tell them the type of fit your child prefers for clothing. Now onto Clothing Types.
Step Three: Clothing Types
Let Stitch Fix Kids know how often your child would like to receive certain styles.
Finish letting Stitch Fix Kids know how often to send certain styles then answer if your child’s personal stylist should avoid any certain fabrics or embellishments. I like this for fashion reasons, but I love this option for children with sensory issues. Too much texture can over-stimulate these children.
Let Stitch Fix Kids know if they should avoid certain elements on clothing, or certain styles. Some kids are too young to manage zippers on their own so this is a great option. Plus- I lean more conservative in the cuts of clothes for my kids. I love that I can simply check a box and not have those options sent to us.
Answer if your child prefers to match from head to toe, or if s/he likes whatever s/he feels goes together in an outfit.
Step Four: Style
Stitch Fix Kids will offer a variety of outfits for you to rate if your child would wear them using “Yes,” “No,” or “Maybe.” This helps your child’s personal stylist and the Stitch Fix algorithm know what styles your child prefers.
Next choose the colors your child refuses to wear. If your children are anything like mine, this is kinda a big deal. Each of my children have one color that is practically their uniform. They’ll branch out if a different color clothing item has a favorite character on it, but that’s about it!
Select any prints your child will love or refuse to wear. These prints were slightly different for boys and girls.
While taking this quiz, I really felt like Stitch Fix Kids put a lot of thought into the types of questions to ask. Many schools have a dress code that restrict the wearing of graphic Ts, and some parents prefer to dress their children more fashion forward and therefore avoid graphic Ts. Anyway- the point being- this was a great question to think to ask, Stitch Fix Kids!
Step Five: Price & Shopping
We’re almost done, y’all!
Select your preferred price range for each type of clothing option. Some parents prefer to pay more for shoes, some want to purchase several shoe options and would rather choose the best deal price range. Your call, mama.
I currently have both of my children’s Style Profile’s set to the lowest amount to stock up on back to school clothing, but as time goes on I may increase the price range to the highest setting and only purchase 1 or 2 very high quality items each time we get a Stitch Fix Kids subscription box. This is a great way to replace old, outgrown closet staples.
Next you’ll let Stitch Fix Kids know if you’re really set to sticking with your budget. I like to mix things up because my own personal stylist has sent me some really incredible pieces from time to time that are slightly out of my usual budget. Let’s be honest, these prices for Stitch Fix Kids clothing are already a steal so even the most expensive options are very affordable.
After answering that question, you’ll let Stitch Fix Kids know where you currently shop. This will tell your child’s personal stylist what styles you like most, and your child is currently happy wearing.
The last and final step is to tell your child’s personal stylist any little extras that they may need to know in order to give your child the best Fix ever! I used this space to tell my son’s stylist that he hates clothes with tags that can’t easily be removed, and that he pretty much will only wear blue or green. For my daughter’s personal stylist, I explained that she has a very feminine personality and that dresses are her daily uniform of choice so sending too many pants or shorts options won’t resonate with her.
You’re done with the Style Profile!
The only thing you have left to do is to enter your payment info and Stitch Fix Kids will set a day for your child’s first Stitch Fix Kids subscription box to be delivered!
In my experience, my Fixes usually ship even sooner than expected by like a day or two. It all just depends on how long your Fix is in styling while your personal stylist curates the best clothing options for your taste.
Don’t miss this last detail!
On the final page, you’ll see a text field where you can enter any particular items you’d like to see in your child’s Stitch Fix Kids box. Maybe your son has worn a hole in his best church shoes, and you’re desperate for a new pair, but the thought of actually taking him out to the store and searching for a new pair sounds heinous. Just type, “Black, shiny church shoes,” in the text field and let your child’s personal stylist take all the extra effort off your shoulders.
See that pretty pink arrow? After you’ve scheduled your first Fix, you receive a special link to share with friends! For each friend that clicks your link and schedules their first Fix you’ll receive a $25 credit to use on your own Fix! Wahoo!! Who doesn’t love free clothes??
