Your smartphone is probably your most treasured possession when you really think about it: you never leave the house without it, you probably wouldn’t be able to go a whole day without it, and if you think you’ve misplaced it, your heart catches in your throat. We’re all the same, so there’s no need to feel guilty! Smartphones are handy tools for multiple things- emailing, texting, calling, banking, entertainment, research- you name it! One function that most may not link smartphones to though, is fashion. There are many useful fashion apps out there you can download to satisfy your craving. We’ve rounded up some great fashion apps you can download right now:

1. Netrobe: This app allows you to take pictures of your current wardrobe or upload pictures from the internet to create your own virtual wardrobe. You can then put pieces together into outfits and save them for future reference. This makes outfit planning way easier, especially if you are going on a trip and want to pack your suitcase virtually before scrambling to do it right before your flight!

>1. Poshmark: This is a buy and sell app that connects fashion lovers all over the world! You can take pictures on your smartphone of items you no longer wear, and sell them on this app. Poshmark will provide you with a shipping label to make the process easier, and you even have the option of it being picked up at your own home. There are virtual shopping parties on the app based around certain designers or pieces that you can also participate in.

3. Lookbook: This app is like the website, where you can find endless street style inspiration from just about anywhere! You can create your own account and post your own amazing outfits, or simply just search users for their inspiring looks. This app will be sure to induce more than a few girl crushes!

4. Like to Know It: This one is extremely popular as it links to another favourite app, Instagram. If you create an account on Like To Know It, then like a picture on Instagram that contains the link, you can then directly shop for that piece! A genius idea to help shop like your favourite Instafamous gals.

5. FAD: This is an educational app that can help you brush up on your fashion terms! It’s essentially a dictionary of fashion terms and sayings, which can be extremely useful. You can dazzle your friends and coworkers with knowing the difference between accordion and knife pleats.

6. Pose: This is a helpful app that determines what you should wear according to the biggest factor in deciding your ootd- the weather! The app will tell you the forecast of your location for the day, then give you sample outfit inspiration to make dressing for the day ahead even easier!

These apps are all great tools for any fashion enthusiast, and even though they may end up encouraging you to shop more (which might be dangerous) they are all useful additions to your smartphone!
