Even the most style savvy among us can find ourselves standing in front of our closets struggling to find an outfit. It’s at times like these we wish we had a personal stylist, someone who’d swoop in with a few key pieces, elevate our go-to uniform and send us on our way. Lacking the budget of say, an A-list celebrity, we sadly don’t have the cash to keep a stylist on call, but thankfully all is not lost. Rachel Zoe, who built her career as a stylist, founded her Box of Style to give women everywhere access to her services. Here’s how it works, and why you should get on board.

Despite unpredictable seasons, fashion is still decidedly cyclical. As long as there are fashion weeks, there will be seasonal trends, which is why Box of Style is delivered to members on a quarterly schedule. At the beginning of each season, members receive a curated selection of trend-forward staples. Each edition contains $400-worth of finds for $99. For example, this fall the western trend is having a moment, so there's a poncho-style cape available in a choice of two colors, black or bordeaux print, with a tassel trim. Rachel selects 5 key fashion and beauty pieces—many of which are exclusive collaborations with brands she loves—guaranteed to keep you ahead of the curve. Past partners have included the likes of Sunday Riley, Helena Quinn, Ouai, For Love And Lemons and Oribe. All of the items are designed to blend seamlessly with products from past boxes, so you're basically building an arsenal of styling essentials.
Rather than just ship you a mystery box, there are always pieces in the edition you get the chance to select. Choose between options like rose, yellow or white gold jewelry or opt for a playful print over a classic solid depending on your personal style. Members also get access to a boutique (with discounted prices, of course) to add extra seasonal treasures to their shipment.
To ensure members get the most of their luxe product assortment, Rachel and her team also provide endless styling tips and inspiration. The box comes with a styling booklet (which also includes discount codes to shop more from the featured brands), as well as access to the Style Notes blog which provides everything from interviews with beauty experts to travel guides and fashion hacks.
