It’s time your phone got an app makeover.

Hunt it down

Donde Fash­ion This app ditches textbased search in favour of vis­ual icons. Say you’re look­ing for a dress. Pick a colour and then a neck­line. Sleeves? What about the length? Donde— which means “where” in Span­ish—in­stantly gen­er­ates op­tions that fit your search so you can hunt down that or­ange minidress with short sleeves and a col­lar or just play around with the fil­ters un­til you come up with a mag­i­cal combo (like a black suede cape). Craves Craves picks up where the Google search falls short. Sim­ply upload a photo of that blush-pink moto jacket you saw on Tum­blr (but can’t find any­where) or snap a photo of your co­worker’s an­kle boots and the app will find matches that you can buy in­stantly. Re­peat un­til all of your fash­ion mys­ter­ies are solved.

Join the in- crowd

The Ne t Set If your friends are late for drinks and you’re look­ing for some­thing to do, launch The Net Set, Net-a-Porter’s new so­cial app, and dis­cover what’s trend­ing. Per­haps it’s Frame Denim bell-bot­toms or an Acne Stu­dios LBD. You can also fol­low icons whose style you ad­mire (like vintage-lov­ing Natalie Joos or la­dy­like-chic Ni­cole Warne) and join Style Tribes (like Min­i­mal­ist, Bo­hemian or Black Is the New Black). And when your tardy pals show up, tell them you were just out shop­ping with Poppy Delev­ingne. Pout If you snap OOTDs in the el­e­va­tor mir­ror or make beauty videos in your bed­room, you can share them with this fash­ion and beauty com­mu­nity di­rectly from In­sta­gram and YouTube. You can also post “pouts”—which can be any­thing from a selfie to your latest pur­chase—and fol­low other users. Ac­tual pout­ing is op­tional.

Swipe & swoon

Vil­loid Writer, de­signer and all-around cool girl Alexa Chung has en­tered the app game. Her In­sta­gram-meets-Pin­ter­est cre­ation is an in­spi­ra­tion ma­chine. Play vir­tual dress-up by cre­at­ing style mood boards, stay up to date on new ar­rivals by fol­low­ing brands like The Row and Er­dem and shop ev­ery­thing on the app. Blynk St yle Blynk’s premise may sound fa­mil­iar: Swipe right to like and left to dis­like. But the latest app to use a Tin­der-like in­ter­face trades in pro­file pix for street-style shots. With ev­ery right swipe, Blynk’s al­go­rithm learns your tastes and sug­gests shop­pable out­fits, which you can dis­like to fur­ther re­fine the al­go­rithm. Imag­ine if Tin­der were this in­tu­itive!
