The best fashion apps & websites to keep you on-trend for London Fashion Week
Today marks the launch of London Fashion Week (17 – 21 February), a celebration of the London fashion scene that sees high-fashion and high-street hit the catwalk.
As the European and global fashion elite descend on the British capital, here’s the best fashion websites and apps that will keep you on-trend for London Fashion Week 2017.
Where to find the best clothes
If you’re a stickler for celebrity style, head over to Styledlike.com. This nifty website takes the latest celebrity looks and recreates them using trusted, affordable retailers.
Shop by ‘scene’ or ‘celebrity’ to recreate outfits tailored to your specific look requirements. Whether it a wedding outfit, festival styles or the latest Kendall Jenner look… the possibilities are endless. Styledlike.com sources the look, so you don’t have to.
If vintage is more your thing, then Vinted is the one-stop fashion shop for you. On a mission to make second hand the number one choice worldwide, this community marketplace is bursting with hidden gems.
Your personal fashion consultant
Combyne allows you to swipe a carefully-curated selection of current trends and vintage fashions by over 800 designers, ensuring that even the most undecided can quickly assemble a catwalk-compliant creation.
Ever struggled with outfit curation? Well, look no further. Thanks to Stylish Girl, you can take photos of all your clothes to compile a virtual wardrobe, and then combine them for the perfect look. Favorite combinations can be stored according to season and occasion so you can find them quickly in times of fashion-need.
Your clothes deserve the best
There’s nothing worse than spending your hard-earned cash on a beautiful jumper, only to destroy it in the wash. Luckily, Love Your Clothes is packed with tips and tricks to keep your new clothes looking fresh as a daisy.
Alternatively, leave your dirty laundry to the professionals. The ZipJet app can get your unmentionables washed and ironed (or even dry cleaned) in as little as six hours! That’s almost the equivalent of binge watching six episodes of Sex in the City or a relaxing afternoon… shopping for more clothes.
Social networks for the fashion conscious
Chicisimo is the ultimate social media site for fashionistas. In addition to posting pictures of your outfits, you can vote for looks you like the most and even buy the look for yourself.
Sometimes you just need someone to tell you that your outfit is fabulous! What better way to get instantaneous opinions from your pals than social media giants Snapchat and Instagram. With Snapchat you can send disposable snapshots of your outfit – a simple thumbs up from your bestie is all you need. If you want to widen the reach, effective hashtagging on Instagram can draw in exactly the right fashion crowd that you want outfit approval from.
