Undoubtedly, fashion plays a large part in our lives. The way you dress makes a statement to others when you walk into a room and may even reveal a part of your personality. Wearing clothes doesn’t have to be just about covering up or keeping warm, it is a fun way to express yourself through your sartorial choices.
Take inspiration from the catwalk with clothes created by world renowned fashion designers as well as the high street. You can even look to influential fashion bloggers online in addition to what people are wearing out and about.
Being fashionable is not necessarily about wearing designer labels or buying into the latest trends, it’s about creating your own personal style and throwing a look together that will leave you feeling confident when you leave the house.
You don’t have to be the editor of Vogue magazine to know what fashion is! Simply download these apps on your mobile phone to look at the latest fashion or find ideas to update your wardrobe with stylish clothes and beautiful accessories. Here’s to your new look!
If you want to know what men and women are wearing daily around the world, download the WIWT app, which stands for “What I Wore Today”.
Not only does this fantastic app showcase outfits through photographs, people that post their picture also add information about what brands they are wearing as well as the occasion they are dressed for. Therefore, if you see a style you wish to emulate, you know what type of stores to shop in or websites to visit online.
Furthermore, the lust section shows must have pieces where you can tap on the link and purchase the garment or accessory directly from the website. This is perfect for when you like something and can get it immediately without having to search for it!
If you’ve seen Clueless, the classic 90’s film about teenage life in America, then you will have seen Cher using a computer to decide what outfit to wear when she wakes up for the day. Her walk-in closet is the envy of every girl, with all her clothes, shoes and accessories neatly stored in its place. With the Stylish Girl app, you can also have your whole wardrobe at your fingertips.
Upload pictures of your dresses, tops, bottoms, shoes and accessories onto the app in the “My Closet” section. Add descriptions of each item, such as the brand name or style, so that when you come to creating an outfit in the “Outfits” section, you will have more information to choose the appropriate clothes for the event you are attending.
If you are jetting off to an exotic location, there is even a suitcase area in the app where you can select the clothes you need for your holiday and add notes, such as remembering to bring your bikini for sunbathing on the beach.
The great thing about Stylish Girl is that the “Fashion Lounge” includes blogs, style tips and videos so you won’t miss out on the latest fashion trends. In addition to this, the “Fashion Mall” allows you to purchase clothing and accessories from within the app, making it easier for you to update your wardrobe effortlessly.
The Stylish Girl app is an essential download for your phone if you take your fashion seriously. It is easy to use and each category of clothing or accessory is further organised into its distinct style, which means that your clothes will be labelled accordingly and creating your outfits will be stress-free.
There is also an app for men called Cool Guy, which is made by the same people that developed Stylish Girl. The same features are in this app, which means that there is no excuse for the guys out there not to be well-dressed too!
ShopStyle is a great mobile app to search across many online stores and retailers to find a particular piece of attire.
Just open this app and select Women, Men, Kids & Baby or Home to start shopping from some of the most popular shops. Again, clothes and accessories are split into more categories so you can look for something more specific.
For instance, instead of just shoes, you could look for boots which are great for when the weather isn’t that nice! Alternatively, you can type in a search term, such as sparkly tops, and a list of results will come up that match that description.
A fantastic feature of the ShopStyle app is that you can buy an item straight away by tapping the “Buy” button. Buying clothes and accessories from this app will suit all budgets as it lists high street brands as well as luxury brands. Therefore, if you want to splurge on an investment piece such as a coat, then the ShopStyle app is perfect for this type of retail therapy.
Furthermore, the Fashionologie section has interesting articles, news, photos and videos which will give you extra content for you to find something you like before you start shopping!
To feel truly fabulous when you are out and about, you also need to consider your beauty regime as well as the way you dress.
Your make-up and hair style also contributes to your fashion look as they can complement an outfit. Luckily for you, the InStyle Best Beauty Buys 2012 app has all the best products from the beauty industry in this guide for you to browse and buy.
They have been tested by an independent panel of experts which means that you don’t have to waste time and money finding the best moisturiser or lipstick.
As well as make-up and skincare products, hair and tanning products have also been reviewed for your convenience. The great thing about this app is that there are testimonials from professionals that use these products for fashion shoots or other similar events, which give the items included in this app more credibility as good products.
In addition to this, tips are given on how to use the product in question to get more use out of it or get better results. For example, if you have ghd straighteners, you can also create wavy hair using this flat iron by twisting it as you move it down your hair.
I believe that no outfit is complete without a spritz of your favourite perfume. With so many lovely fragrances on the market, there is no need to stick to just the one perfume. I tend to have around five different perfumes on the go that I use depending on what mood I’m in, although I do have a signature scent.
However, it’s always fun discovering a new perfume to wear, and with the iPerfumer app, you can quickly find your new fragrance. Create a profile on this app where you can rate a number of perfumes for both men and women. Once you have a few listed, tap on the recommendations button to view similar scents from the same fragrance family and/or base notes.
This app also shows the most recently launched perfumes so you will know what the latest scents are as well as being able to view ratings from other users. It’s always nice find a new perfume to wear as variety is the spice of life!
Looking good, feeling good and smelling good is always a winning combination to make you feel confident when you step out of the house. With these fashion apps, you never have to worry about what to wear as you will be inspired by what other people are wearing as well as seeing what online fashion stores and well- known fashion brands have to offer right now. Shopping from your mobile phone has never been easier, and with these free apps you will be able to add items to your wardrobe. Looking stylish and chic has never been so effortless!
