#NerdStyle Help: Apps for Fashion and Style

6  comments

So I don’t know if you heard, but I just received my credentials to be a Certified Speaking Professional. It’s kind of a big deal. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

The CSP ceremony is at the National Speakers Association conference in just a couple weeks, and my manager, Molly, has me a little freaked out about what to wear because, you know, it’s kind of a big deal. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

In my pursuit of a great outfit, I’ve been trying out some style apps that will help you find looks, style outfits and track down bargains. What are your favorites? Add them in the comments!

Hook vs Tailor Showdown

Similarities:

  • Both let you search by image
  • Both let you shop right away
  • Both let you use your existing closet to create outfits

Differences:

  • Tailor’s instant search feature ROCKS! I mean, it just blows Hook out of the water. It’s not even a fair fight. Watch this video:

  • Tailor also has a stylist component that ROCKS. You get access to a real stylist that will help you decide between outfits, suggest new looks and more.
  • Tailor was also more size conscious, suggesting items that come in my size instead of just size zero. Hate those skinny models!

Winner: Tailor.

Again, it wasn’t even a fair fight. In fact, the only reason I even mention Hook is because it’s interesting to see the differences between two top apps. It is taking me way too long to finish this post because as soon as I discovered the Tailor app, I was off shopping for that dang CSP outfit! #FocusBeth

Other Style Apps

  • Combyne lets you upload pictures of your closet items and see different outfit combinations.
  • I’m not a Kim K. follower, but people love her stying app, Screenshop. It brought up nothing for Penelope Garcia and Velma, but all of the Kardashian photos were analyzed in seconds with similar products available for sale instantly. What a surprise.
  • Epytom is a chatbot for Facebook Messenger that helps you style your wardrobe around 40 signature pieces. I never got it to work right. But it’s interesting.

Bonus Tool

Have you heard of Amazon’s style gadget, Echo Look? Get this… you set it up in your bedroom and ask it to take a head-to-toe picture of you in two outfits. Then it uses AI and human stylists to help you choose the best outfit. #Helpfulbutcreepy #Maybejustcreepy
