Stylematch – Shop, Try and Buy from Home
If you love to shop and you consider yourself a fashion expert, then consider downloading Stylematch from Stylematch Pty Ltd. This app has everything any fashion lover could need to find, try and design outfits on the fly, without leaving the comfort of home. Running on the power of your iOS device, be it an iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch, you can now browse through thousands of websites from designers and retailers all around the world, and discover treasures you would otherwise not, if you were to just hit your local mall.
Stylematch breaks up your experience this way. First, you get a Closet. When you first download the app, your closet will be empty because you are starting from scratch. So, to be able to do anything with the app, you will need to fill it. That’s where the fun begins.
To fill your closet, mosey on down to the horizontally scrolling menu nicely placed at the bottom of the app. As you slide the items back and forth, you’ll Shop. Select this and you will be place on what may be considered the main page of the app. You can shop for women’s items or for men’s. When you select one or the other, you will be presented with a list of categories of items, including, but not limited to:
Once you find a few items you like, you can take them over to the Virtual Change Room. Here you can “try on” the items you’ve selected to see how they look, before you slap down a cent. The Virtual Change Room is also used to piece together outfits from your collection in your closet, as it begins to swell, and trust me it will.
The beauty of this app is the power it puts in your hands. You can put together so many options from so many places, and so easily. What’s better is that you don’t have to buy in the dark. The Virtual Change Room lets you see how each piece will look on you before you make a commitment. A perfect example is if you are ready to buy a blouse, but you’re just not sure if it will go with a pair of pants you’ve already got hanging in your virtual closet, simply pull both of them over to the Virtual Change Room and try them on. You can even add a few accessories to see if they help. The possibilities are endless.
The only negative to the app was that all menu items were empty when I first downloaded the app. I would have like to have seen a few example outfits or a few pictures to help get you started. Ignoring that one small snafu, Stylematch made shopping so much more fun! It even brought out a bit of a designer in me, as the pieces came tumbling forth, I started seeing combinations I probably would never have imagine just standing in my own real closet!
