The apps to digitally organise your wardrobe like Cher in ‘Clueless’


by Holly O'Neill

As if!

Have you, at some point in the last year, done a wardrobe clear out yet? If you want to, but the thought of it is too overwhelming, here’s a concise guide for you.

If you have sorted out all your lovely clothes that have been neglected for a year but know you’ll still wear the same outfits on repeat, or if you’re looking to reduce your shopping habit, these apps are for you.

By photographing, uploading and digitising your wardrobe, not only do you get to be like Cher from Clueless minus the Alaia dress, but there are a myriad of other benefits too. You can organise, save and plan outfits, categorise (think how easy holiday packing would become), fall back in love with old clothes you had forgotten, forever extinguish the problem of ‘I have nothing to wear’ and find the gaps in your wardrobe

Most importantly, it will make you buy less by helping you make better decisions about what you actually need. When you think about buying another striped sweater, you can look at your phone and realise you already own 12.

All you need to do is take photos of your clothes (most apps will let you crop them onto a plain white background) or take them directly from the website, upload them and get organising. Never again will you leave a wake of destruction in your bedroom that requires cleaning after the exhausting process of finding what to wear. Are you ready for a wardrobe that’s part Black Mirror, part The Home Edit? Then check out these apps.

Whering

Whering is a wardrobe organiser and personal stylist in one. Upload your wardrobe, create outfit collages, get outfit suggestions and add your shopping wishlist.

SYW (Save Your Wardrobe) lets you scan your wardrobe, search by features like brand, colour, category and mood, plan outfits and organise them, all with the goal of helping you to extend the life of your clothes. Excellent additional features include partners that help you repair, clean, donate and upcycle your clothes to make sure you get the most out of every piece you own.

Stylebook, €3.99

Don’t skip over this one because you have to pay for it! For the price of a coffee, you get a lot in return. There are over 90 features on this app for the ultimate curated closet. Organise by outfit and add them to a calendar, shuffle items to find new pairings, create a packing list, get stats on what you wear the most/least, add inspiration pictures, search by fabric or colour and so much more. This one is for the seriously organised.
