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.

    Awful experience!

    • Atlanta, GA,
    • May 13, 2018
    • Verified Reviewer

    I placed two orders on April 24th totaling almost $500 combined. Where to begin...

    I paid for Express shipping, and on the one order for four items that I have received so far (today is May 10th), I did not get Express shipping. One of the items was wrong, I emailed about the delay in processing and was not provided with any answers, I received two emails that the items had been shipped, but when I went to the tracking and entered the code, it said that my order could not be found.

    Of the dresses I received, the sizes are way off. The XXL (which should be a 14) looks like maybe an 8 and I don't think it will fit my daughter who I bought it for a special occasion, which came and went long before I received the item.

    I emailed and asked for the express shipping charges to be refunded and have gotten no response. I have no idea if or when I will receive the other items I ordered, and since everything is shipped in smaller shipments, it's hard to keep track of what I have and what is still coming.

    This has been an extremely frustrating experience.

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

    • Colorado,
    • May 10, 2018
    • Verified Reviewer

    Of those who have had a bad experience, my stuff hasn't even shipped yet but they will keep a "15%" refund fee. There's no phone number on the site to speak with someone. Just email, and it's clear English is not their first language. I have been in touch with my credit card company. If anything, I should get a 15% extra refund for the hassle they delivered. Because hassle is the only thing they have delivered to me thus far.

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

    All the three dresses I bought are poorly made. Its finish is really bad! Uneven seams and hems. Loose threads and looped stitches. After the very first wash, it's a real piece of trash. Not worth my money!

    Expensive cheap crap, too costly to return

    • Palo Alto, CA,
    • Apr 11, 2018
    • Verified Reviewer

    A friend ordered some items for me for my birthday. They went with the size they know I am, but when the items arrived the sizes were all over the map. The medium size blouse had sleeves so tight I could only get them on up to my elbow. The material on all the items is cheap, yet the prices are on par with upscale department stores. When we went to return them, we discovered that they would have to be shipped to China and the cost for shipping was about half the price of the merchandise. If you’re going to have an online order store - where items can’t be tried on prior to buying - you have to have a reasonable return policy.

    Avoid this business or risk wasting your money.

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

    Delivery time can be over a month and returns difficult.

    I ordered my dresses on February 5, 2018 and didn't receive them until the third week in March. The dresses were not as attractive as they appeared in the pictures. I am now trying to return them. I am told I am responsible for any return costs for shipping and any customs fees. I am also told that international return may result in substantial return cost for me, and they are offering me a 15% cash refund or a 20% store credit instead of returning the items. 15% of the money spent on the dresses and this seems fair to them? Think twice about ordering from them.

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

    No delivery. No refund.

    • New York City, NY,
    • Apr 9, 2018
    • Verified Reviewer

    I loved the styles of StyleWe, so decided to take a chance and order. An order was made and money was immediately deducted from the bank account. Two months later, StyleWe had no projected delivery date and it was agreed that the order should be canceled.

    Three weeks after cancellation, StyleWe claims that a refund has been made, but no funds have been received at the bank where they first deducted my money.

    They do correspond in this matter, but only to claim that a refund has been made, although it has not reached my bank.

    No problem taking the money, but lots of difficulties refunding the money.

    Still waiting...

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

      HANNELORE BRIGGS

      I would never order from StyleWe again. I ordered and paid for a dress in January 2018 to wear for Valentines. February and March go by, and no dress, no communications. We are in March, what is going on? There are no communications. Today, I received an email that the dress has been shipped three months later without an explanation. I'm a director of a customer service, and if I would treat our clients like that, I would be fired.

    Happy with my shopping

    I just received my order from StyleWe and I'm super happy with my items!

    The prices on this website are awesome, and very good quality of the clothe's fabric.

    About the shipping time, it arrived very fast (even before of the time that says on the website), so I'm really happy and satisfied. I will buy again here very soon. I recommend it without a doubt!

    Canceling charges ridiculous!

    I placed an order and requested express delivery, but it took them more than three business days to process my request. When I asked to cancel, they said they would have to charge me 15% penalty for canceling my order, and if I wanted to return my item, I would either get a refund and quote: "accept refund in the form of StyleWe store credit, we will apply full amount to your StyleWe account which you can use for future purchase" or "money refund, a 15% cancellation fee will be deducted from orders cancelled after purchase but before shipment. The refund will be credited back to your original payment account within a week."

    At time of ordering, there was no notifications of this terms, unless you go directly to the Q&A and read about their policies.

    It was my first and last time ordering from them. Do not fall for their scam. They don't care for the customer, all they want is your money!

    You won't get a fair refund or exchange if an item is flawed or doesn't fit

    • Houston, TX,
    • Apr 4, 2018
    • Verified Reviewer

    I would give them no stars if it were possible. I ordered a dress, it came with part of it not sewn in the back, and the zipper was not installed properly. The dress was also too small. I emailed them no less than four times over two months and sent pictures about the issue. When they did respond, they offered me either 30% store credit or 25% money refund. After I pointed out to them that the proposal was ridiculous, they emailed me this:

    "Hi Gail Adams,

    You can fix the dress with a local tailor, we'd love to offer you 40% store credit or 35% cash refund, hope you can understand and accept it.

    Best regards,

    Hope"

    I used to order from them all the time, and returns and exchanges were easy. I don't know what happened to them. I will NEVER buy from them again. If you do, please be aware of their new way of doing business and getting a VERY small fraction of your money back even if the item is flawed or damaged or does not fit. You have been warned.

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