About StyleWe

StyleWe offers consumers the chance to shop fashionable clothing designs made by independent fashion designers and small boutiques in one convenient online store—but with a twist.

Unlike other online shopping platforms that boast a variety of unique selections, such as Etsy, StyleWe allows designers to focus on the designing, while StyleWe handles production and customer service.

StyleWe claims that, through this unique structure, consumers are able to curate their own, unique style and build relationships with designers for diverse and personal fashion choices. For designers, they claim that this model allows those who create to enjoy recognition and direct customer feedback, instead of the anonymity that comes from designing for a larger label.

While StyleWe’s benefits sound appealing in theory, anyone who’s purchased a knockoff garment or accessory knows that how an item looks at first glance isn’t everything.

Will StyleWe be able to maintain the quality and fit consumers expect when buying independently designed items? Before we answer that question, let’s learn more about what they claim to offer.

Our First Impressions When Shopping StyleWe

StyleWe offers every category of women’s apparel that you would expect from a large online store, including dresses, tops, outerwear, skirts, pants, jumpsuits, and swimwear. They also have a handbag section. However, there are no accessories or jewelry options available.

You can browse StyleWe’s selections without signing up for the website. But to make a purchase, registration is required. On the up side, registering gives you a coupon good for ten percent off of your first StyleWe purchase.

What did we notice while looking around?

The selections available in StyleWe’s various categories don’t prescribe to any particular style. In dresses, shoppers will find midriff-baring skirt and top combos and bandage dresses next to evening gowns—and in no particular order.

When compared to department store websites or even larger boutique stores that allow for better filtering of sub-categories​, the enormous number of items available can be overwhelming. Further, the inconsistencies in image backgrounds and the dated look and experience offered by the website falls short of building confidence.

What is included is detailed product information, including materials, fit measurements, and laundering instructions. This is often left out by smaller boutiques whose focus on style can leave gaps in the purchasing experience. Although, it’s worth noting that the majority of items we viewed were polyester.

StyleWe Pricing & Refund Policy

Although registration is required, becoming a StyleWe member is free. Items range from flash sale selections starting around $40, to professional and formal wear that is over $150.

Standard shipping costs are between $1.99–$6.99 and takes between five and seven days after processing (which is an additional three to five days). Free standard shipping is offered on all orders over $60.

Alternatively, shoppers can choose express shipping, which takes two to five days after processing, and costs between $9.99–29.99.

StyleWe does allow for items to be returned within 30 days of the date that it was received. To return an item, it must be unused, undamaged, and in its original package. Additionally, you are responsible for the cost of return shipping.

To make a return or exchange, you need to request to do so online by clicking a button on the right of your order confirmation. You’ll receive an authorization number and return address within 24 hours, at which point you can post your return.

StyleWe asks that you email them proof of your package being sent, such as a tracking number or picture of your package to complete the process.

What isn’t eligible for a return? Swimwear can only be returned or exchanged if the product is defective. Additionally, you must provide StyleWe with an image of the item to prove that there is a defect when requesting a return.

Finally, if you feel you’ve made a mistake in your order and cancel it within 24 hours of purchase, StyleWe will issue a full refund. For orders that have not yet shipped, but have been made in excess of 24 hours, StyleWe offers a partial refund after deducting a 15 percent cancelation fee.

StyleWe Reviews: What Do Customers Have to Say About StyleWe?

The most frequent comments from StyleWe customers is regarding something that isn’t immediately apparent when visiting their official website: StyleWe is located in China.

While many of the products we use on a daily basis are manufactured overseas, StyleWe’s international location is at odds with their message of quality and independent designers. Clothing made in China is also generally associated with questionable fit and materials.

What were some of the individual comments?

Looking at the reviews of StyleWe on Sitejabber, we’re left with a mixed bag of impressions that veer towards the not-so-great, including:

1. Incorrect sizing: One user said, “I wear a 10-12, so ordered XL, assuming cheap stuff runs small. The XL is supposed to fit 12-14. Both items are a 6-8 at best.”

StyleWe’s customer service representatives appear to respond to many of the complaints on Sitejabber. In this instance, service rep Lanny S. responded to the above complaint, stating:

“Our items usually run one size smaller, so it will be better to choose bigger size. Every time when you click the size "S, M, L" etc., it will show the corresponding detailed measurements for the specific size. Then you can check.

You can also refer to the item Product Details to see the exact measurements first and choose the corresponding size (S, M, L, etc). The size guide is just a reference for all the items, which is not as accurate as the info of product details.”

2. Poor quality: Rose C. stated that she was disappointed with her StyleWe order, and rated the cut and quality of the items she received as poor. Rose also complained that the items she ordered only looked 80 percent like the images that were advertised.

3. Difficulty returning items. Several reviews mentioned that they experienced delays or a lack of response when attempting to return their StyleWe purchases.

That being said, there are also multiple reviews that praise StyleWe’s customer service and state that the customers had an overall positive experience shopping the online store.

Since the reviews on Sitejabber are so hit-and-miss, we looked further and found one blogger’s detailed account of shopping StyleWe.

You can read the full article at Denver Sewing Circle, but here are a few highlights from Jilly’s experience:

  • She mentions that the website can be difficult to navigate, that all available colors aren’t always shown in images, and that shoppers should take extra care to look at the individual product sizing information instead of relying on the standard drop-down options.
  • Her shipping was delayed by several weeks. First, after being held in customs, then held stateside. Delivery took five weeks in total.
  • The writer was unable to find any information about the designers StyleWe claims have created the garments they offer and suspects that they might not be real.

The reviewer had purchased a $60 dress, one of StyleWe’s cheaper options, and stated in her review that it looks like “an average, mass-produced garment.”

The post wraps up by saying that, overall, it wasn’t a negative experience, but that she believes there should be more transparency regarding shipping times so that customers can have realistic expectations.

Is StyleWe a Scam?

Due to StyleWe’s ongoing attempts to respond to and mitigate complaints, along with the absence of any reviews complaining that they never received their purchase at all, we don’t believe that StyleWe is an outright scam.

That being said, we’re also not confident that the brand is everything that they claim. This is because, after reading the Denver Sewing Circle review, we also attempted to locate social media profiles and websites for the designers that StyleWe lists and came up empty handed. Additionally, despite their friendly tone and promises of exceptional customer service, the number of customer reviews complaining of the undisclosed potential for shipping delays and unresponsive customer service are too many to assume that it’s a fluke.

Overall, we’re left with the impression that StyleWe is a Chinese-based clothing manufacturer of the likes that might supply Forever21 or other budget-minded stores, but are attempting to cut out the middleman by offering selections directly to consumers. While this might work in theory, StyleWe doesn’t seem to have worked out many of the bugs with their shipping and processing.

Bottom line? If you find that you’ve fallen in love with one of StyleWe’s selection and are okay with the price, you might be pleased with the order—as long as you’re not in a rush. However, we’d advise against shopping StyleWe on the premise of supporting independent designers or saving cash on small-label purchases, as there are so many other options that don’t involve international shipping.

  • Do not buy from this company - it's a con!

    • England,
    • Sep 19, 2018
    • Verified Reviewer

    I tried ordering from this company based on reviews - those reviews are NOT TRUTH. I believe any good reviews are the company putting this online. The quality is appalling and nothing like the picture. Then when you try to arrange to send the item back, it works out more expensive to return the item than to buy the product in the first place! This is a Chinese company, the product you order is not already made, so you have to wait for the company to arrange the item to be made, which takes months, THEN you have to wait for the shipping and delivery. It just isn't worth your time, effort and money. The only offer is a 30% discount - it's as if this is a money laundering scheme not a clothing company!

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

  • Dress didn't fit - told to mail it to CHINA!

    • Santa Barbara, CA,
    • Sep 18, 2018
    • Verified Reviewer

    I bought a dress that didn't fit. I filled out the return form. Then found out I would have to send it to CHINA! Or they would give me a 15% refund. This is crazy. The clothes look good in the photos but are made for tiny people. The size they said corresponds to size 10 was probably a size 6. What am I going to do with a dress I can't return for a reasonable cost?!

  • Beware!

    • Massachusetts,
    • Sep 16, 2018
    • Verified Reviewer

    The clothing is AWFUL. I immediately returned the items, which they make the buyer ship directly to China. There is a California return address, P.O. Box 6368 SOH, Rosemead, CA 91770, which they will NOT allow the buyer to ship to. I am filing a complaint with the California Attorney General's Office.

    I did ship the items to China, but it cost $35.00. It's a matter of principle for me, and if PayPal doesn't refund my money on these hideous items, I will NEVER use their services again. Companies like this should not be allowed to sell in the US.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    This company is not honest. The advertisement of the clothes they have is totally fabricated. Neither sizes nor material is as described. They expect you to pay for returning items even though the return is because of their problem.

  • Do not buy anything!

    • Winfield, WV,
    • Sep 10, 2018
    • Verified Reviewer

    I ordered three dresses in April. I received them in June. The dresses were very pretty, but they didn't fit properly. On June 21, 2018 I returned all three. As of today, September 6, there is no information on the return. I have sent 4 or 5 emails only to be told "We did check many times already in our return center, we still have not received your parcel, we tried to track it but there is no update for a long time. At this point, we really have no idea where it is now. At this point, to avoid any delay we'd love to offer you a 30% refund or 50% store credit for this missing parcel, is that okay."

    After reading many reviews online, I realize this is a scam.

  • What I expected

    My order was of a classic dress that I would use for the day or wedding event. When I asked for it, I did not have many hopes, but the package arrived at my door in less about 30 days, and I opened it and shut my mouth. The fabric and details are crazy, too beautiful, definitely has a 10/10 excellent quality in the dress.

    StyleWe is a scam

    • Toronto, Canada,
    • Sep 9, 2018
    • Verified Reviewer

    I ordered a lovely dress for a wedding. The picture was gorgeous. I ordered it. It took longer than promised to get it.

    Finally, it arrived and the dress was not exactly like the pic. Like they duplicated it. Quality was cheap.

    In order to get a full refund, I had to return it.

    The website makes it appear as a US company. They are located in China. It would cost me $100 to ship it back. The dress would end up costing me almost $200.

    They would not refund me without getting the dress. I was willing to even get back 50%. They wouldn't do it. Best they would give us is 35%.

    DO NOT order from these people! They DO NOT inform you they are in China! The quality and item are not what you think you will get, and once they get your money, it's too late.

    Scammers.

    I recently bought a fur coat on StyleWe, and it was true to size and very adorable and cute as well. The quality is perfect for me. Especially the fabric it is very soft, and the color I picked is white, so I totally love it. It was a very amazing experience for me by the way.

    Don't! Just don't!

    • Massachusetts,
    • Sep 8, 2018
    • Verified Reviewer

    I purchased three items, using their size charts to decide on the size. The first looked nothing like the photo, the manufacturer was different and it didn't fit at all. The second was OK. The third had very shoddy workmanship. Forget trying to return anything. I had to send about seven photographs documenting my claims. They told me they would credit 15% and I could use that for alterations. Eventually I accepted a 25% discount and keep the garments I can't use. Then they tried to tell me the amounts I expected back weren't correct even though they came directly from my PayPal receipt. Overall a terrible, stressful experience. Never again! And I WILL be reporting to PayPal.

    They offer a huge, huge range of fashionable clothes, shoes, bags, jewelry, etc. at reasonable and affordable prices. What I love most about this store is that it always follows seasonal trends. There are so many things I'd like to have in my closet. Their pieces are made of high-quality materials, which is a number one thing important when buying online.

    StyleWe return policy is burdensome and unfair

    • Philadelphia, PA,
    • Sep 6, 2018
    • Verified Reviewer

    I contacted StyleWe after ordering five dresses. I had to return three of them as they were not true to size - so small. When I paid $23 to return the three dresses to CHINA, StyleWe did NOT pick up the return package in time and the dresses were returned to me. Now I have dresses that I cannot wear and need to spend even MORE money to return them. How is this fair?

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
