Get appy with the ultimate shopping companions…

It’s true to say there’s an app for pretty much everything in your life, even one that measures your happiness (in case you needed reminding). And, if you’re sartorially smart and tech-savvy, then the latest fashion apps might not only elevate your wardrobe status, but might make you a teensy bit happier, too. Here’s five of the best free apps. Happy tapping.

1. Frockadvisor

We love this locally grown app by fashion duo Sonya Lennon and Brendan Courtney. It’s like a personal shopper in your pocket. It links shoppers with independent boutiques – so, if you spot something you like, snap it, post it and all those gorgeous fashion hubs get to engage directly with you to offer something similar. Plus, you get to keep in touch with your favourite stores, while getting something a little bit different to the rest of the posse.

2. Style-eyes

The Shazam of fashion. Spot a piece of clothing you like – on the street, in a magazine, on a friend, and the app searches over 400 of your favourite high-street stores to help you find out where to splurge. And if that’s not enough, they suggest similar pieces, organised by brand and price, with discounts, too.

3. Cloth

Want an organised wardrobe? Love fashions selfies? Then, this nifty app helps digitally archive your entire wardrobe, so you can mix and match outfits and actually see what’s lurking in the back when you have zero time to fine it. There’s even has a real-time weather forecast to help you decide what to wear each day (handy if Ireland is your home). Just smize, snap and save your best looks. You’ll never stare at your wardrobe blankly again.

4. Lyst

The fashion site with thousands of the world’s leading brands, boutiques and department stores has just launched an app. Warning: this is potentially dangerous, ladies. Just follow favourite brands or stores, so your news feed is only filled with news and offerings from them, them add items to your own lust lyst, share them with followers, and get notified when they go on sale, or when pieces have come back in stock. The ultimate personal shopper.

5. Flink

Too many blogs, too little time. Sound familiar? This handy app gathers content from over 700 top fashion bloggers (think Garance Dor? and Fashion Toast) with options to pin favorite street style looks, share them with users and most of all, be inspired. Like a virtual shopping companion for your next shopping trip.
