Ready to build your Spring wardrobe but in need of inspiration? Here’s some great apps to download now to take the stress out of shopping.
Alexa Chung launched this social shopping app last year and is a great source of sartorial inspiration allowing you to play around with style ideas before trying them out. A digital community of like-minded fashion lovers, VILLOID allows you to follow influential style icons as well as sharing your own looks and even shop.
Seen someone wearing your dream dress but no idea where to buy it? Snap Fashion allows you to simply snap a picture and upload it to the app – it then provides you with similar items available to buy online, you can even filter what you like about a piece and simply search for the same colour, shape or pattern. This is an app that basically takes all the hard work out of shopping.
Shop Fashion Week as it happens with the Moda Operandi app by pre-ordering your favourite catwalk looks from the likes of Valentino and Hermes. Putting down a deposit means you’ll be one first to get your hands on the pieces when they hit stores this fall. The app is free to download but if you’re planning on using it to replenish your wardrobe be prepared to invest a small fortune.
Essentially Tinder for shopping, simply swipe right if you like something and left if you don’t. As well as fashion you can also buy beauty products and follow stylists and brands for style inspiration on WantList.
Rent the Runway
Why buy when you can rent? Rent the Runway allows you to choose from thousands of designer items and rent them for a limited period of time. Either pay as you rent or subscribe to the service for a monthly clothing allowance.
