5 Great Fashion Apps You Need to Install Today

Apps aimed at fashionistas are ten a penny, but that means it’s better to be discerning about what you install, as otherwise your phone could end up overflowing with software.

We’ve narrowed down a few of the top options to consider if you want to stay engaged with the fashion world in the most convenient way possible, without stumbling upon dud apps in the process.

Your Favorite Brand’s Apps

All of the biggest fashion brands around have their own mobile apps available for customers to use, and in this sense you can really pick and choose from whichever labels are at the top of your watch list.

The mobile application of the brand Sézane is a good example of a high quality, richly featured app that lets you see the latest collections from this respected fashion house, and even place orders for items as soon as they land.

Of course there are myriad other brands to pick from, and first party apps like this tend to give you exclusive access to items earlier, which is attractive if you want to be ahead of the curve.

Fashion-Inspired Games, e.g. Drest

The subgenre of mobile games that are inspired by fashion is not huge, but there are some compelling experiences within it. Drest is a big hitter in this category, with some even claiming that it could change the face of fashion as we know it.

The concept is simple; you have a virtual avatar that you can dress and accessorize in whatever way you please. The twist is that the clothing featured virtually in the app is also available for you to buy IRL if you wish, and with a raft of brands including Gucci and Burberry onboard, it is as much of a discovery tool as it is a game.

Marketplace Apps, e.g. Depop

Buying new garments can be expensive, and it’s also not always the most eco-friendly option. That’s probably why Depop has exploded in recent years.

This is a marketplace app which appeals to anyone with an eye on the vintage fashion scene. And since trends tend to go in cycles, it’s also a good place to pick up pre-loved clothes and accessories just as they are about to come back into the spotlight.

Outfit Planning Apps, e.g. Smart Closet

Assembling a virtual wardrobe of fashion items and putting together outfits without having to rummage through your drawers manually is a breeze thanks to Smart Closet.

You can snap pics of the things you own, and also pull in products from a large line up of established brands as well, so you can live that Clueless dream and make it a reality.

With integration for tools that help with vacation luggage planning, as well as every day outfit organization, it is an incredibly practical app, as well as one that comes with clever filtering and research features to let you find items similar to those you already own.

Personal Stylist Apps, e.g. Wishi

Rather than spending hours trawling through fashion mags and social feeds to try and identify the items you want to order for the new season, what about letting a professional do the leg work for you?

That’s the concept behind Wishi, and it is essentially a way of getting a personal stylist to revamp your wardrobe without having to pay through the nose for the privilege.

You can choose to go all-out with new purchases, or ask the stylist who is assigned to you to give you tips on how to make best use of the items you already own.

So as you can see, there are fashion apps for everyone, whatever your budget or your stylistic goals this year.
