This Revolve clothing review will check out what this brand is all about, including their top-selling pieces, customer feedback, and if any iffy details would make you second guess making a purchase.
Overview of Revolve
In 2003, Michael Mente and Mike Karanikolas started Revolve when they found themselves jobless after the dot com bubble popped. Without an extensive background in fashion, the pair had a good feeling that this e-commerce industry was going to be huge.
Mente and Karanikolas decided to take a different approach to selling online, using bloggers (now turned influencers) to showcase their products. Check out the Revolve website for Revolve careers related to branding.
The Revolve collection is an ever-changing stock of items. 1,000 new items weekly from the middle to high-end designers selling directly to Mente and Karanikolas. Operating out of Cerritos, California, Revolve is a natural fit for its glamorous and ever-trendy surroundings.
This Revolve clothing review will now take a look at the company to see if what glitters is gold.

Free People Truth Or Square Bodysuit
Be comfortable enough to play, or feel confident when dressing up to hit the town in the Free People Truth Or Square Bodysuit. In black, nude or white, this classic bodysuit evokes edginess with its unique square neckline.
From size XS – L, the stretchy jersey material will show off your curves and is extremely versatile. The bottom snap makes it easy to get in and out of. Free People creates clothing for carefree and adventurous women, and there’s no exception with the Free People Truth Or Square Bodysuit ($58).
Boys Lie, Goodbye Crewneck
The Boys Lie, Goodbye Crewneck from Revolve is a wardrobe staple. Made from 100% cotton, this fleecy sweater is snuggly and stylish and comes in one size only. Light green with a screen-printed graphic on the front, like all other Boys Lie items, the Goodbye Crewneck tells a story and inspires female confidence.
The brand, born out of the heartbreak of two women, was inspired by the bond they formed while getting over their exes and building each other up. The Boys Lie, Goodbye Crewneck ($110) is perfect for those who can relate to being jilted (who hasn’t?) or those who just want a super cute sweater for the fall/winter season.
BlankNYC Suede Moto Jacket
It’s all in the details with this BlankNYC Suede Moto Jacket. Featuring 100% leather, a metal zip front, pockets, belted waist, and buckle closure make this suede jacket extremely edgy and sexy. The Sand Stoner suede color is a nice change on the traditional black jacket and comes in size XS-XL.
The BlankNYC Suede Moto Jacket is another piece that can be a closet-staple, with a versatile design that can be dressed up or down. Designers Maung and Kourhani create looks that are both polished and earthy. Their BlankNYC Suede Moto Jacket ($198) exudes bohemian biker babe.
Commando Faux Leather Legging
There is something extremely eye-catching about a leather legging. The stunning Commando Faux Leather Legging leaves little work for the imagination and hugs your body like a second skin. They’re made from faux-leather, have a stretchy fit and come in sizes XS-L.
Made in traditional, sassy black and new-age metallic gunmetal, these leggings have a raw hem for that seamless look, tucking brilliantly into knee-high or ankle boots. The Commando Faux Leather Leggings for $98 command attention with their effortless style, which this Revolve Clothing review highly recommends.
LEVI’s 501 Skinny Jeans
Sometimes, a classic look can’t be beaten. LEVI’s 501 Skinny Jeans embody the American cool, showcasing Levi’s trademark craftsmanship. Made from 100% cotton, the 501 Skinny jeans feature 5 pocket styling, a button fly, whiskering, and fading detail with some intentional distressing on the front, mixing tradition with a modern flare.
The 501 Skinny Jeans come in sizes 23-32, which equates to around XXS-L. If you need more help with sizing, refer to the size guide on the item page. The 501 Skinny Jeans are available for $98 in one color: Can’t Touch This, and this Revolve clothing review thinks the jeans exude that cool confidence, too.
Michael Stars Mock Neck Midi Dress
Michael Stars Mock Neck Midi Dress is one of the Revolve dresses that are a great throw-on and leave the house kind of dress—Revolve calls this “pull-on styling”. It comes in Noir and Saddle colors in sizes XS-L. The Mock Neck Mini Dress features side-ruching for a sexy feel that’s comfortable as well.
This Revolve dress is made in the USA and perfect for day or nightwear. The designer, Michael Stars is known for classic, season-appropriate pieces, and this Revolve clothing review envisions the Michael Stars Mock Neck Midi Dress ($128) as a perfect addition to your fall/winter wardrobe.
X FP Movement Take Me Away Onesie
Many of us don’t think of trendy, mid-to-high fashion when it comes to activewear. Think again. The X FP Movement Take Me Away Onesie from Revolve just might be your new and hot ticket to a workout that will make you do a double-take in the gym mirror. With the stretchy fit design, layered bodice, and form-fitting texture, you can feel comfortable, supported, and fabulous.
The X FP Movement Take Me Away Onesie comes in sizes XS-L for $202, available in black or burgundy. Throw on a jean jacket and some Aviators for a chic street look, or pair with some sneakers and take on your morning jog. Either way, you’re bound to look your best (and fit) self any time of year.

Is Revolve Clothing Worth It?

Pieces vary in price across Revolve’s extensive collection, so it’s definitely possible to shop regularly if you have the budget (keeping in mind that nothing would be considered inexpensive).
This Revolve clothing review keeps in mind the numerous complaints about clothing quality, and our response is: we’ve all been there with online shopping, no matter the company. That’s one of the trickiest things about online shopping. But with the Revolve clothing return policy, you’re in luck, because you have 30 days to return the item for a full refund.
