14 Fashion Apps To Download Now
1. ShopStyle Mobile
Bring together 300 retail stores and this app is what you get. Compare prices of clothes for men, women, kids, or even compare prices of furniture. I love the convenience of being able to shop by price, size, even color; definitely my favorite fashion app!;
3. Trendstop Trendtracker
Find out the next trend before it’s even out there with help from predictions of people in the top of the fashion industry. A great place to see crazy “trends” like oversized fabric chains or see-through bombers, that will probably never make it into your local department store. Free.
Now you can save, categorize, and share your favorite outfits by snapping a pic and uploading them to the app. Bonus: Cloth recently teamed up with wunderground.com to gain access to real-time weather data, so you can pick the best outfits from your wardrobe for the current conditions. Um, so awesome. Price: Free
View the latest and top runway shows from around the world. The big downside is that the videos won’t be “optimal” unless you are connected to wi-fi. I could never get the video to play at all. The slideshow photos, however, are brilliant and well worth the download. You can even click through to see the review for each designer. Free.
Browse through Target products, find out what aisle products are on, or even scan barcodes for more product info while shopping in the store. If you want to buy anything with your iPhone, you'll have to click through the website at Target.com. Free.
It’s a virtual view of your very own closet so you can plan outfits no matter where you are. Of all the apps, this one is potentially the most useful for me when it comes to remembering what I already own and coordinating new purchases; the downside is that it is very time consuming to photograph and categorize everything you own. $.99
7. OpiNail Studio
If you spend a solid five minutes choosing your polish shade at the nail salon, consider this app a time saver. On your way to get a mani, download this app, change the skin tone of the hand to match yours, and then test out different polish shades so you can choose your fave at the salon in a flash.Price: Free
8. Elle Shopping Guide
Find where to shop in 10 major U.S. cities with this handy shopping guide. I found myself more than a little annoyed by the constant pop-up ad, though. Free.
The iPhone app of the famous website downloads well-dressed people from all over the world for you to flip through for fashion inspiration. You can save the pics to camera roll or share on Facebook. Free.
10. Zara by Inditex
Lets you see all the new arrivals at Zara, which is one of my favorite stores for cute, trendy, affordable clothes. The downside is that it's really just for browsing, because there's no click-through to the site to buy each item (and if there was, I couldn't find it easily.)
11. Love It or Lose It
Lets you send pictures of clothes to friends or the Love It or Lose it community before you purchase so you’ll always be able to get a second opinion before you wear. Also great for armchair fashionistas who want to give their opinion on other users' clothes. $.99.
With this app (which works with stores in NYC, San Francisco, LA, Boston, and Tokyo), you can browse for a specific product nearby, say, a white clutch—or snap a pic of a cool pair of pumps, tag its brand, price, and the location you found it, and share it with fellow Snapette shoppers. You can even get a push notification that a retailer nearby is offering a special discount for Snapette users. Score!
This app not only tells you what the weather is outside but also what to wear for the weather too so you’ll never make another weather related fashion mistake again. Sort of a pain to have to register after you’ve downloaded it. The day I tried it, it was 97 and they gave me a “Daily Look” of layered denim jacket and floor-length skirt which was definitely NOT appropriate for scorching heat (although two of the other looks were.) Free
This app (Rachel Zoe's a huge fan) encourages you to take a pic of your entire outfit on a daily basis, tag brands, and share a cute caption to accompany your photo. Need some outfit inspiration? Scroll through existing users' pages to see what their outfit of the day is. Bonus: You can even see how many people liked your outfit by their comments or the number of likes it gets. Price: Free
