Virtual Closet: 5 Apps to Organize and Plan Your Closet
Despite being a perfect time capsule for all things 90s, Clueless is actually still pretty relevant today given the recent 90s and 2000s fashion trends making a comeback. Yet the most noteworthy aspect of the cult classic wasn't the fashion itself but that amazing virtual closet that Cher had at her fingertips. As a fashionista, it doesn't matter what era you grew up in, the idea of a virtual closet like hers is enough to make anyone drool.
So more than 20 years later, where are we on the whole virtual closet technology? Well not as far along as the technology in Clueless but there are still plenty of apps out there that can help you organize and plan your wardrobe like Cher does. We've rounded up the top 5 apps to try out so that you can channel your inner Cher Harowitz.
The good: You can erase the background for a cleaner look, you can keep track of outfits you've already worn in the calendar, and you can plan and save future outfits.
The not-so-good: It's only available for iPhone and iPad and it's not free to use but luckily only requires a one-time payment.
The good: Allows for background removal, lets you to categorize and search by color, and you can have the app mix and match your items to find new outfits.
The not-so-good: The mix and match feature is randomized so the outfits don't always necessarily go together.
The good: You can ask for others to style outfits for you using the clothes you have in your closet and plan outfits for the future all for free.
The not-so-good: It can take a couple days for others to style your outfits so you need to plan accordingly.
The good: Categorize your own clothes, create new outfits easily with the horizontal rows of clothing, and use the shop feature to look up current trends to incorporate in your look.
The not-so-good: No background erasing feature and probably not a good idea for anyone with a shopping problem.
The good: Gives you lots of options for categorizing your clothes, creates new outfits for you that you swipe left or right on just like you would on Tinder without the unwarranted creepy messages.
The not-so-good: You can't erase the background and swiping right on an outfit you like won't automatically save it so make sure you actually click save on an outfit you want to try out later.
Check out the apps and decide which ones will work for you. Before you know it, you'll be putting outfits together as easily as Cher.
