If you’ve ever thought that everyone else looks great in simple pants and shirts, and wondered how they manage to pull it off so effortlessly, Frank and Oak has the secret. They offer trendy wardrobe basics for men and women. The popular retail store now has a style plan so you can try out new outfits and pieces to see how they fit into your current wardrobe.
Frank and Oak is committed not just to style, but to eco-friendly sustainable clothing production. They work with a variety of manufacturers in the United States, Canada, and across the globe to produce water-efficient denim, fabrics from organic fibers, and polyester made from recycled plastics.
Visit their website and take a quiz to let your stylist know your fashion preferences, sizes, and budget. Three items are picked out for you each month, or every other month, depending on which schedule you choose. After the stylist picks out items for you, you can review them before approving your box. If there’s anything you’re not interested in, you may swap the pieces for others before the box ships. Swaps are made from a curated list of what’s available that month, not from the entire Frank and Oak collection on their sales site.
You have seven days to try things on and return what you’re not keeping. Arrangements can be made to return items within 30 days if you can’t make the seven-day deadline, but you’ll be charged for the pieces and then refunded when they are returned. You may also pick up your box and return or exchange items at a store if there’s one near you.
Frank and Oak charges a $25 styling fee for each box. This charge is credited toward any purchases you make from your box. Items purchased through the subscription are up to 20% off the retail price of the items on their website. They offer free shipping and returns.
