3 Apps That Will Help You Minimize, Organize, and Optimize Your Closet
For those who have seen the movie ‘Clueless,’ we’ve all fantasized having Cher’s closet generating styling machine. However, what most people do not know is that this is actually possible with our smart phone! Our list of top three fashion styling apps will help you minimize, organize, and optimize your closet. You know what this means… no more tearing up your wardrobe to find that perfect outfit in the morning. Not only will these apps make your life easier, they will help you reconnect with your wardrobe and you can reduce your carbon footprint — read on to learn how to make the most out of your wardrobe!
The first app is 30 wears. This app will help you to reduce your environmental impact by using up what you already have, or in other words, wear your clothes more and buy less. By helping you keep track of the clothes you are wearing and how many times you wear them, ‘30 Wears’ encourages you to take part in the #30wearschallenge, a movement started by the author of Eco-Age Livia Firth, in which you wear your clothes at least 30 times and embrace a minimalistic approach to fashion consumption. From understanding which clothes you wear the most, this app will ultimately make you think about what you should avoid buying in the future by coincidentally asking yourself “will I wear this at least 30 times?” All in all, you will learn to appreciate your clothes, rather than buying that one cheap outfit that lasts two times before it is pressed in the back of your closet.
Next up is the Forma Closet app. No need to hire a stylist, with its high tech Artificial Intelligence and Computer Vision, this app allows you to virtually try on any clothing for free! With Forma Closet you can curate ensembles from clothes from your wardrobe or off the internet, just like Cher would… and we all know how annoying it is when we cannot find the perfect outfit for an occasion. By just taking pictures of your clothing, the app allows you to mix and match for certain occasions, figure out what clothes you really need, and understand what clothes you’ve been neglecting. This app can basically be considered your very own lookbook.
Lastly, we have Save Your Wardrobe (SYW). This app guides you through a sustainable journey by helping you care for what you already own. By digitizing all your clothes and accessories, SYW provides insights on how to take care of your wardrobe based on its conditions and materials through curated ecosystem services such as upcycling, cleaning, donation, rental, repairs, and responsible shopping. There is no doubt that your vintage pieces will be kept in tip-top shape. SYW also allows you to make and plan outfits according to occasion, weather, mood, or whatever else it may be. When you don’t know what to wear, take a look at your saved outfits and cut the stress of getting ready in the morning. With this app, optimizing the value of my wardrobe never seemed so easy.
