Hopeless at shopping online and in stores? Never fear, Stitch Fix ($20 styling fee; item prices vary) is here. It's an online styling service, which means that you get professional wardrobe help but get to try on all the clothing your virtual stylist picks out for you in the comfort of your own home and take as long in front of the mirror as you need. Also, you don't have to feel obligated to try something you know you truly hate on just to make your eager stylist standing there not feel bad.
To get started, answer a range of questions about your tastes, ideal price range, sizes, how often you want a box of clothing to come in the mail (every day, but let's be realistic) and more. Soon enough*, you'll receive a magical box of five items in the mail. Keep one or two items or send them all back - it's up to you, but know that the $20 styling fee applies to your final order if you keep anything.
* Unfortunately, the wait list time is about two months right now. :(
