Who says you can’t mix and match fashion with technology?
The iPhone and iPod Touch both offer tons of different applications to download. Among them, I have found some great fashion applications. I will talk about my top three fashion applications so far.
1. Style.com – This application allows you to view exclusive runway photos and party pictures at the palm of your hand. Just open the application, click on fashion shows and scroll to find the designer you want to view. You will instantly have access to their entire runway collection with just the swipe of your finger. Amazing application for those of us who aren’t fortunate enough to attend fashion week in person. Best of all, it is FREE!
2. My Style Fashion Assistant - I just downloaded this application yesterday but I am already in love! I am a huge fan of free applications and occasionally a $0.99 application but when I stumbled upon My Style Fashion Assistant, I just could not resist. This application allows you to basically import your entire closet onto your iPhone or iPod Touch. You can either import these photos by using the camera on your iPhone or you can upload them from your photos. Once your photo is uploaded, you can then categorize into what type of clothing it is, what brand it is and into what you would wear this item for (going out, casual, working out, fancy, business). Now you can view the items in your closet individually or mix and match the items into an outfit that you can save and refer back to later. Amazing! This application also lets you keep track of what you wore on what day with a fashion calendar and keep track of the items you want with a “fitting room.” Seriously, amazing application! Well worth the $4.99.
*TIP* For the best results, make sure you try to take the picture on a solid white background or use Corel Paint Shop Pro to get rid of the background. Paint Shop Pro makes it easy to get rid of almost any background with their background eraser. I take the pictures on the ground with my digital camera since I have an iPod Touch. I then upload them onto my computer using Paint Shop Pro, re-size the image to a smaller size, crop the image to get rid of excess background that would distort the image and then erase the background. This program really makes it extremely easy to do all of this!
3. Shop Style- This program is great if you just want to do some online shopping. You can shop by brand and shop by what you are looking for or just check out there entire collection. You can also filter items by price and sale. If you love shopstyle.com then definitely check out this application. Definitely a great application for people who like to shop while on the road and best of all, it is FREE.
Know of any other great fashion applications? Let me know and I will definitely check them out!
