In such case, the Customer will be promptly reimbursed, in the same means of payment as the Customer used for the original transaction.

Wearable Stories will in any case make the refund within 30 days.

All Products offered for sale on the Sites are described in good faith and conscientiously and as accurately as is possible.

Prices stated during the purchasing process are expressed in euros and include VAT and administrative costs.

Product and service prices do not include transport costs which will be charged separately, on top of the purchase price, as specified on the respective Sites. Any discount to which the Customer is entitled will be deducted from the price separately.

The Customer will receive a confirmation of the order, as well as the corresponding invoice, on an electronic and durable medium.

Products will remain Wearable Stories' property until the respective Customer pays for the Product in full, i.e. until she/he pays the purchase price and all costs in full.

The Customer warrants that she/he is authorised to make payments by one of the payment methods stated above. It warrants as well that there are sufficient funds in the respective bank account linked to the credit card to cover all the costs arising out of the transaction.

Wearable Stories reserves the right to refuse to fulfil at any time an order with a Customer with whom it is in dispute or who has brought a dispute in the past, or who has not paid for a previous order, wholly or in part.


To place an order, the Customer goes to the Product of his/her choice, chooses the colour and size he/she wishes to receive and then clicks on ‘Add to shopping bag’. The said Products will be added to its shopping bag.

The risks of loss and/or damage pass to the Customer on delivery to the delivery address mentioned during the ordering process or any other delivery preferences specified by the Customer.


The Customer has fourteen (14) days from the day of receipt of the Products ordered to exercise its right of return, without the need to provide any reason.

The Customer will inform Wearable Stories of its decision to revoke by sending a clear, unambiguous declaration to Customer Service, Ballaarstraat 69-71, 2018 Antwerpen, Belgium or by E-mail: nicetomeetyou@wearable-stories.com. The Customer is encouraged to use the return procedure set out on the Site, but this is, however, not mandatory.
The Customer shall return the Products to Wearable Stories immediately and in any case, at the latest fourteen (14) days after having communicated the decision to revoke. The Customer must return the Products in a new and unused condition, with all the original labels on, and at his own expense. In certain countries, Wearable Stories may provide return label for free returns. If this is not the case, the Customer will bear the responsibility for the Products (including any damage or loss) until it reaches Wearable Stories.

In case the aforementioned conditions are fulfilled and Wearable Stories has received the Products, Wearable Stories will refund the Customer the full sum of the order, including the purchase price and transportation costs (other than additional charges arising from the Customer’s choice of a different method of delivery than the least expensive type of standard delivery offered by Wearable Stories).

The full purchase price excluding the standard transportation costs will be refunded within 21 days of Wearable Stories receiving the returned Products in good time, provided all conditions as specified above have been strictly complied with. Under no circumstances can the amount repaid ever exceed what the Customer actually paid.

For this refund Wearable Stories will use the same means of payment as the Customer used for the original transaction unless expressly agreed otherwise and in no event will the Customer be charged for this refund less the sales vouchers or discounts used to pay for the order. The Customer will be refunded in accordance with the procedures agreed with the bank which issued the card.

The Customer shall be liable for any loss in value of the Products if such loss in value is due to having used the Products to an extent more than necessary to establish the nature, characteristics and the functioning of the Products.

The following additional terms and conditions apply to gift cards:

In case of faulty or non-conforming goods, the Customer can contact Customer Service via the contact form which can be found under the ‘Contact’ option, or via the e-mail address nicetomeetyou@wearable-stories.com.
The Customer shall be entitled to the two-year legal guarantee of conformity for goods, as described below.

From the moment Wearable Stories receives the defective Product, Wearable Stories will at the Customer's choice either repair the defect or replace the Product with a Product free of defects (so-called supplementary performance). Before asserting other warranty claims, Wearable Stories shall be given reasonable opportunity and time to perform such supplementary performance. Wearable Stories can refuse the type of supplementary performance chosen by the Customer if it is only possible with disproportionate costs.

If the supplementary performance fails, the Customer can obtain a reduction of the price according to statutory provisions or a termination of the contract at his/her choice.

The right to terminate is excluded if the delivered Products deviate only insignificantly from the agreed quality or if the contractual or normal use of the Products is only insignificantly impaired.

Customers must contact Customer Service should they wish to invoke this guarantee immediately, and notify Wearable Stories of the non-compliance via Customer Service in writing in any case within two months of discovering the defect.

Under no circumstances does the guarantee apply to Products which are damaged intentionally or by the Customer's negligence, nor does it apply if the damage is due to sleet, transport or incorrect use.

Customers can contact Customer Service if they have any queries regarding the above.


Providing the guarantee under article 10 and customer support is important to Wearable Stories.

Therefore, all acts that may negatively affect Customer service are forbidden, including i.e. relabelling the Products, exporting them outside the European Union for commercial purposes.

The costs incurred by Wearable Stories for the verification of compliance of prohibition of export for commercial purposes outside of the European Union will be borne by the Customer in case of infringement.
