Shopping Guide: Three free fashion apps to keep you on trend


Shopping Guide: Three free fashion apps to keep you on trend


A little bit Yelp and a little bit Instagram, Snapette isn’t simply another online shopping app, it’s about what women everywhere are craving.  The application started with a focus on bags, shoes and accessories, but has blossomed into a one stop shop for all things fashion.

Unlike similar applications, Snapette is not a “rate how this person looks” forum.  Instead, users can post snaps of must-have pieces, update other users on sales and events, get the inside scoop on freebies and fun fashion DIYs and essentially go window shopping around the world.  Curious about the hot shoe in Milan or the outerwear of choice in Paris – Snapette is the only app you need.  Plus it’s extremely user-friendly and can map your shopping location down to a 5-block radius.

Big style names like Coco Rocha, Rachel Zoe and The Man Repeller are already devotees of Pose.  Top fashion mag Marie Claire even declared it “a live stream of street style right on your phone.”  Pose allows users to flip through thousands (literally) of new user-uploaded outfits and styles daily, then shop the looks and jump on the trends.

Upon downloading, Pose greets users with a comprehensive style quiz to help determine the best fashionistas to follow.  After that it’s simple to start posting pics of everything from your brand new fascinator to your favorite trench.  Plus users can instantly upload Pose posts to their Tumblr, Facebook and Twitter accounts, and tag by brand, store and price.  It’s a perfect venue for getting inspired, sharing the fashion love, uploading your own pics and getting friendly style feedback.

Go Try It On
Go Try It On has attracted the attention of top fashion sites like and Refinery29, and everyone seems to agree that this crowdsourcing style app is a winner.  The concept is blissfully simple: users without the assistance of a trusted girlfriend or reliable mirror can simply upload a pic of themselves wearing the outfit in question and get feedback from other users.  Based on the constructive critiques, those in doubt can either get a dose of confidence or a gentle push in the opposite direction.

Even when users aren’t looking for a definitive yes or no, they can still post personal style pics and must have looks.  The app even features a photo shoot mode, collage templates and window shopping options to create your custom wish list.  Many fashion celebrities and stylists are also active on the site, so users can literally benefit from expert style advice.
