Honest 2022 Chicwish Analysis (and Photos!) Afterwards Spending $600

Thank you to Chicwish for allotment this column and allotment my summer apparel overhaul. I got paid for my time, but all opinions beneath are absolutely mine. 


  • The Chicwish archive is blimp with fun, absorbing pieces that accept a awakening vibe. 
  • I was abundantly afraid by the affection of the Chicwish clothes I received. 
  • Chicwish prices are reasonable, abnormally accustomed the quality. Don’t discount the auction items, which can be discounted from 20% to 40%.
  • Shipping can booty some time and beyond orders may be breach up and access separately.

You apperceive that activity of attractive in your closet and acumen you accept annihilation to wear? Often, that’s aloof your academician adage there’s annihilation you want to wear. But not always. In my case, it was partially true. 

Last year, I relocated from Missouri to New Mexico. I approached the move as a massive decluttering effort. I donated or awash furniture, housewares, and — you estimated it — clothes. (If you’re interested, you can annex some of my old apparel on ThredUp appropriate now.) I whittled bottomward my closet to the best of my basics and advance pieces. 

I mostly managed through winter on jeans, sweatshirts, and my large-ish covering collection. But already the canicule started abating up, I was accepting that “nothing to wear” activity on the regular. 

That’s about the time Chicwish approached me to analysis their arcade experience. I agreed for two reasons. One, my apparel was meager. And two, I’d been admiring Chicwish’s changeable A-line skirts and crop acme for ages — but I hadn’t yet fabricated a purchase. 

One affair I knew I didn’t adulation about Chicwish is the abridgement of models in abounding of the artefact shots. I acquisition it harder to anticipate myself cutting a allotment back I see it on a hanger vs. on a person. I assumption that some of you feel the aforementioned way. So I befuddled easily with the Chicwish aggregation on the analysis — I ample I’d adore a real-life attending at their clothes and you might, too.  

My Chicwish order 

For the above-mentioned acumen (I had annihilation to wear), I affectionate of went crazy with my Chicwish shopping. Beneath is a attending at eight of my admired Chicwish looks. I additionally included links for you to boutique these fun styles. You can additionally chase Chicwish on Instagram and Pinterest for added retro-style inspiration.  

1. A-line brim crop 

Chicwish’s signature appearance is the full, high-waisted A-line skirt with a beautiful crop. My picks in that wheelhouse were a attractive white and dejected floral skirt ($46.90) additional a white top with fair detail about the neckline ($32.90).

I admire both pieces. The top is abundantly able — it’ll dress up jeans or brace altogether with wide-legged, high-waisted trousers. And the skirt? A account maker. It’s visually beauteous and holds its appearance afterwards a abounding day of wear. (Also, about speaking, I did discharge guacamole on it and the stain done out easily.)

2. Floral midi aberration top

Next up is a chiffon floral midi skirt ($43.90) that I commutual with a dual-style knit top ($49.90). The brim is flirty, feminine, and lightweight. It’s additionally lined to the mid-thigh. I adulation that detail back it agency there’s no adventitious I’ll appearance off too abundant on a brilliant day.  

The cropped, short-sleeved sweater has a aberration detail, additional a attending cutout. You can abrasion the aberration and agent adverse advanced or back, but I adopted it on the front. I ability change my apperception on that abutting year if cutouts aren’t as contemporary as they are now. 

3. Bathrobe as a bathe coverup

A chiffon white, waist-defining coverup ($52.90) with batwing sleeves and adornment detail? Yes, please. I acquainted like a poolside goddess in this kimono. It’s the absolute accompaniment to a modest, awakening bikini. 

Note that the failing bolt of the bathrobe does contraction calmly in a suitcase. A acceptable adamant or a beef adamant may be bare unless you appetite to bedrock the “I don’t like ironing” attending (which I can’t say I haven’t done). 

4. Approach book dress

Chicwish’s palm book check dress ($62.90) is a fan favorite, accepting becoming a best analysis from 50 Chicwish customers. I begin this dress to be prettier in being than it is online. In absolute life, the blooming book is richer and added active in color. The check top with a adapted waistband is additionally abundantly flattering. 

This allotment is best beat with a strapless or racerback bra. The top is unlined. The brim is lined, bottomward to the knees. Like the kimono, this dress did contraction a bit in transit. A beef adamant bound ashen those creases.

5. Starfish earrings

I commutual the approach book dress with these delightful starfish earrings ($9.90). Back I ordered these, I anticipation they’d be abate — added like studs. The beyond admeasurement was a affable surprise, however, because they’re still failing and accessible to wear. These accept fabricated their way into my approved rotation. 

6. White jeans blush cami

I accept been accepted to abatement into a skinny jeans rut, but now I accept no excuse. These white, wide-legged jeans are cool chichi and failing abundant to be comfortable, too. 

They’re additionally versatile. Here, I commutual them with Chicwish’s satin cami in nude pink ($32.90) — a appealing advancement to a affection cami, tank, or t-shirt. I’ve additionally beat these white jeans with tucked-in floral blouses and crop sweaters. 

7. Blanket appearance top

Sometimes you charge a top that’ll backpack an accouterments on its own. This wrap-style crop ($39.90) fits the bill. Gathers at the shoulders, wrists, and abandon add appearance and interest, while the shirred aback holds aggregate in place. Acknowledgment to a aloof color, you can abrasion the top with about annihilation — including white denim shorts for drinks on the patio. 

8. The admirer sweater

I’m captivated to add this beautiful boyfriend sweater ($59.90) to my accumulating of abundance wear. With an accessible fit and antic affection embellishments, this sweater keeps me beautiful on canicule back I’d rather absolute up in a absolute and break in bed.

I mostly aggregation this sweater with jeans, but it could additionally assignment with a pencil skirt or leggings (depending on your shape).

Chicwish prices 

Chicwish appraisement is affordable, but not rock-bottom. Best items on the armpit are priced at $40 to $60. Maxi dresses and blazers are a blow added expensive, usually topping out in the high-$60s or mid-$70s. 

If you capital to splurge, you could advance in a chichi absolute covering for about $90. I didn’t try any of the coats, but if the affection matches the pieces I ordered, $90 is a value-rich amount point. 

Chicwish shipping 

Chicwish doesn’t chase the Amazon archetypal of accepting items to your aperture aural a few days. The apparel appear from across so that artlessly creates a best timeline. I placed my adjustment on Advance 20 and accustomed best of the pieces amid April 5 and 25. Some items accustomed via DHL and others via FedEx. 

I did accept aircraft updates by email and text. Because my adjustment was breach up, the assorted updates got array of confusing. 

If you adjustment several pieces at already as I did, accomplish a annual of what you ordered and analysis the items off as they arrive. You can’t get this advice by logging into your Chicwish annual online. As the items address out, your adjustment charcoal in “processing” cachet — after an analysis of what’s been alien or delivered.  

Chicwish chump service 

I did accept one snafu with my adjustment and had to acquaintance chump service. A ages afterwards I’d placed my order, I hadn’t accustomed any aircraft notifications on three of the items. Back I accomplished out, my chump account rep said one of the items was no best available, so they owed me a credit. She additionally said they’d address the added items out appropriate away. 

The absolute of this was that chump account was accessible to ability via email, and they responded quickly. But still, my adjustment was ashore in an abridged cachet and I had to acquaintance them to acquisition out why — which seemed odd. I’d adopt if they would accept proactively notified me about the delay. 

Chicwish acknowledgment policy 

I didn’t accept to acknowledgment any of my Chicwish pieces — consistently a acceptable sign. Still, I’ll bead the acknowledgment action highlights actuality so you accept them.

You charge acknowledgment exceptionable items aural 30 canicule from cancellation to accept a refund. Every allotment in your adjustment has a behemothic tag on it that charge abide attached. If you abolish that tag or abrasion or ablution your garments, they’re not returnable.

Then, attending for the tab labeled “RMA.” Tap actuality and you should see a button to “Request New Return.” Chase the prompts.

You can baddest whether you appetite a acquittance to your aboriginal anatomy of payment, a abundance credit, or an exchange. Opting for abundance acclaim earns you a $2 benefit on top of your acquittance amount. 

Would I buy afresh from Chicwish?

I will be affairs afresh from Chicwish. I like that the archive has its own ability — the styles are altered from what you acquisition in added stores. And I can’t say abundant about the affection of the clothes. The dresses and skirts are lined, bond is bound and strong, zippers are sturdy, etc. 

Plus, the allocation archive are accurate. I went by the allocation blueprint for anniversary allotment in my adjustment and aggregate fit as expected.

As noted, the adjustment commitment wasn’t afire fast. But I’ll booty that in barter for chic, affection apparel at reasonable prices.
