Top 5 Best Fashion Apps
July 23, 2013

With more and more companies launching fashion apps for the most style-conscious among us to make sure we’re always on-trend, we’ve sifted through the thousands out there to bring you our top 5 for the iPhone. All are completely free to download from the app store and have been tried and tested by our very own team here at Drumroll please…

Our Top 5 fashion apps for the iPhone

1) ShopStyle
ShopStyle has been an online favourite for years, offering a simple search facility to find fashion across over high street and designer labels. The ShopStyle app is just as easy to use, allowing you to search for everything from dresses and tops to shoes and accessories, before filtering by colour, price and even the discount available is the clothing is on sale. You can also set up sale alerts so you’re kept informed when any of your favourite fashion stores or designers launch a sale, as well as getting style tips from it’s team of fashion editors.

2) Snap Fashion
Snap Fashion is the newest in our list; launched recently by a Bristol University graduate who wanted a better way to be able to find catwalk fashion on the high street. The Snap Fashion app lets you search for clothing online by using a photo – all you need to do is take a picture on your iPhone or an outfit or piece of clothing and you’ll then be shown similar items that can be bought at stores across the UK. We love it as there’s a few nifty other features including building a wish-list based on your fashion finds and being able to see what your friends think of the clothes by sharing it on Facebook. If you need some inspiration to get started check out the blog section of the app for the hottest new trends and where you can get the look.

3) Vogue Daily News
The official app from the global fashion magazine is included within our list due to the unique content it has, coupled with ease of use. You can get the latest fashion news wherever you are, including insider interviews and style pictures from the hottest events. It’s a great app for any gossip lovers, trends setters and people looking for inspiration from catwalks across the world. There are a lot of fashion news apps out there but the Vogue Daily News app is the best one in our opinion if you like to know what your favourite celebrity is wearing and where they’ve been snapped.

The NET-A-PORTER app offers a great crossover of style tips coupled with fashion tips. This means you can get instant inspiration in the Fashion Fix section of how to get the look, or see the freshest new trends hitting the high street from catwalk collections. If you like what you see you can then find all the clothing needed for your perfect outfit and add it to your basket within a matter of seconds. The checkout process is nice and clean and it’s one of the best apps for shopping on your mobile. It’s fully synced up to the main website which means you can also manage your wish list and NET-A-PORTER account across different devices so you don’t have to add new information every time you log in.

5) Pinterest
The Pinterest app is the only app to make our list that isn’t solely fashion focused. The reason – it’s the best one to get feedback from your friends and followers on new styles you like. You can upload or add a pin in seconds, comment on your friend’s pins and get inspiration for the community on hot new styles out there. Because it’s built on the community element, it’s completely unbiased and you’ll often get fashion finds first from people snapping across the world, which makes it a brilliant app for trend setters who love being the first to experiment with new styles.

With thousands of new apps being added to the App Store each week, we’re looking forward to seeing some new innovative ideas coming through to make buying fashion on your mobile even easier – Snap Fashion is certainly one to watch. It’s the only one that allows you to search by images rather than text, which is how we’ve traditionally shopped on the high street by window browsing.
