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.

  • Beware!

    • Georgia,
    • Jan 17, 2018
    • Verified Reviewer

    So, I ordered a dress, which was not cheap, and boxed it up for my wife at Christmas. She opened the box on Christmas Day, I picked up the dress and held it for her to see, and she immediately said, “no, that’s just not right for me." I had misjudged whether she would like it. So, I personally take the dress, box it up and send it back. I did not ask for a refund, just store credit. My wife never tried the dress on, or really even held it.

    When I inquired about my store credit, here’s what they said: "we cannot give you a refund because your dress has a strong smell of perfume." How insulting. It’s insulting to my intelligence. Can’t they come up with a better reason for such a scheme? I boxed it. And I don’t wear cologne. It absolutely had no “strong“ smell of anything!

    Do yourself a favor, and stay away from these people. These kinds of things are the way they make their money. I suppose they will do anything they can to save on shipping costs, either to and from China.

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

    Clothing that NEVER ships

    On November 30, 2017, I placed an order. Today is January 2, 2018, and it still hasn't shipped. Every time I contacted the "company," I was fed a different story and at each turn, told that it would ship within 24 hours. Well, those 24 hours never happened.

    The main narrative has been that the item is on backorder. Yet, when I visit the site, it's showing as in stock. Another narrative of theirs is that the holidays caused a spike in demand that the warehouse couldn't accommodate. Yet, there is no messaging to that effect. The only conclusion that can be drawn is that they take your money whether or not they can ever offer you what you paid for. In their case, NOT!

    As I write this review, I'm told that it's being shipped expedited, but I get to carry the cost. Did I EVER ask for expedited shipping? NO, I did not.

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

    Sizing too risky and too long a wait.

    Garments are nice. Sizing is a bit of a gamble. Can take more than five weeks to arrive. I think that the quality is good and the price is great, but the inconvenience of the wait plus the uncertainty of the fit makes it unlikely that I will order again. Sorry, I can't recommend.

    The shipping time was pretty fast, and the pieces I received were on-trend and beautiful. They're very affordably priced, and all their items are really cute. I ordered a couple of tops that I now receive a ton of compliments on.

    Such cute clothes

    I got a lace top and distressed jeans here, and they are some of my favorite pieces. The quality is incredible, and I love all the design details. I've worn them for several months now before writing this review and can say that they hold up great and have absolutely been pieces I can create an entire look around. I love the interesting pieces on this website and will definitely be back.

    Good options, but some items are not made well, and shipping takes too long.

    • San Francisco, CA,
    • Dec 18, 2017
    • Verified Reviewer

    I really like this site as they offer many unique style options. And I love the Flash Sales and discounts they occasionally offer.

    I've ordered 17 items in the last year, and have only had issues with 5 of those items.

    Some items are not made well. Two of my items arrived loose at the seams, one of which I sent back and the other I fixed on my own.

    There are also many items that are made of cheap materials. You have to use your best judgment and send items back timely if you are not happy with the quality. I also find that some of the items are overpriced. I don't mind spending money on a piece that is well made with good materials, but some items are not made well and still priced quite high.

    I ordered a nice evening dress that I wore once and noticed it was coming apart at the seems where the dress splits in the front, I fixed it and thought nothing of it. When I attempted to wear it a second time, it split at the seems on both sleeves and fell apart (it was my size, in case you were wondering if it was too small). When I tried to return it, StyleWe would not take it back as they claimed that too much time had passed as per their policy. It was only a few weeks after I purchased it but since it's not an everyday dress, it took me a while to wear it a second time, which is when it ultimately fell apart.

    I once had an order that was late, and when I inquired about it, I was told that it was delayed because of the holidays, which is fine, though they could have sent me an email to inform me that my order would be later than expected.

    The issue with this site is that it seems you can't really get a shipping date until the item is no longer processing. I have an order now that has been in processing status for 9 days and their policy states that all orders will process for 3-5 days and that shipping will take an additional 7-12 days. It would be nice if their process included more customer communication, especially since it takes so long to get the items as most of them come from China.

    The final issue I deem notable is with the sizing; their sizes run really small. You must know your measurements to be sure that you are selecting the right size, in addition, though I am only a size 6 US, some of the items do not come in my size. One thing I really do appreciate is that they do carry some plus sizes, which is nice, however, it would be nice to see more items that come in plus sizes.

    Great site and great options, but be careful what you buy.

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

    Disappointed experience

    • Melbourne, Australia,
    • Dec 15, 2017
    • Verified Reviewer

    Whilst some of the clothing depicted on this site looks appealing, the clothes when received are of poor material quality and cut.

    The sizing is not in accordance with those recommended by StyleWe; some are huge, others are small.

    Returns to this company, whilst complying with all advice regarding their return policy, this company FAILS TO REFUND MONEY PAID within a reasonable time. I am still waiting for a refund after approximately two months. VERY POOR and certainly NOT INDUCIVE to making further purchases from this company.

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