the five apps every fashionista needs.

As much as I miss BBM, I’m happy to say that I am once again the proud owner of an iPhone, which means Words With Friends, Angry Birds, and yes, working Internet. 

In exploring the many uses of this shiny new toy, I noticed that the App Store is lacking in the fashion department — so for all those who are facing the same problem, here is my curated list of fashion apps every fashion enthusiast MUST have…besides Instagram, of course.


This app is my favorite one for full show photos. The list of designers is easy to navigate, the collections are complete and updated, and you have access to a plethora of other goodies, such as a “Look of the Day” (which you can vote for!) as well as photographs from A-list parties for fashion inspiration.

Gilt on the Go

Remember when the Alexander McQueen sale was sold out before you even had time to log in to your laptop? Streamline the process with Gilt on the Go, Gilt Groupe’s smartphone app, where you can browse and shop with even more ease than you can online. Not a member of Gilt? CLICK HERE and join today for fantastic deals on designer goods!


Browse an endless database of up-to-date products from the comfort of your own home! Shopping for a tote on a budget? No problem — refine your search to show totes (including where to buy!) under $100. Know you want a pair of Louboutins? Search by designer. ShopStyle is like the Yellow Pages of fashion — so yes, you need to be able to access it immediately at all times.

Lookbook Browser

Even Anna Wintour is not exempt from those mornings when you wake up and have no idea what to wear. That’s where Lookbook comes in — instant style inspiration at your fingertips! 


Keep up to date with ever-changing fashion world with Women’s Wear Daily, whose app features current news, photos and videos. Whether you’re an amateur or expert in fashion, there’s something to be learned from WWDBLAST — there’s even a history slideshow, where you can learn the origins of Fifth Ave and other iconic moments in fashion history!

The best part? All of these apps are free…so there’s not excuse not to have them at your fingertips at all time!
