1. PS Dept
Ever wondered what it might be like to have a personal shopper on hand at all times? Wonder no more, for having the ‘PS Dept’ app is like carrying one around in your pocket. You can search for a fabulous pair of heels to go with that dress you bought last month, or even find entire outfit inspiration for your next big night out.
Personal stylists from huge brands including Net-A-Porter and Stella McCartney will provide you with free advice to help you get that outfit spot-on; leaving you free to shop directly for your goodies afterwards.
If you love fashion and enjoy a good mood board then this is the app for you. Combining visual inspiration and mobile shopping, ‘Polyvore’ will never let you down. You can put together your very own outfit mood boards to help you visualise your new look and then use the intuitive, brand-rich shopping section to browse for the items you fancy.
What’s more, you can also flick through outfit boards created by others and discover incredible styles you might never have thought of before.
Calling all shoe lovers, you seriously need this app. Dubbed the ‘Tinder for Shoes’, you can use ‘Stylect’ to swipe through all the most wonderful shoes in existence – over 50,000 styles, no less.
Based on your own personal style and preferences, you’ll be presented with an almost endless parade of beautiful shoes. You can filter these by colour, price and style until you find your dream pair. Who needs the real Tinder when you have this?
Spending all morning getting your outfit looking absolutely on point and then stepping out into torrential rain is never a pleasant experience. Luckily, you can download the ‘Pose app’ and erase this trauma from your life forever. With this handy app, you can see what other people in your area are wearing, based on the weather forecast for the day, so you can never be caught out again.
You can even filter the results by occasion, so whether you’re off to work, a lunch date or a posh evening do you can make sure you’re dressed right for the weather as well as the occasion.
