The Internet has changed the way we thought about fashion. You can buy cloths, handbags, accessories, and shoes virtually anywhere and everywhere. Because of this, shopping for stuff is more fun than its ever been before. People can buy whatever they want, wherever they want because everything is online now. If you’re shopping for some unique, expensive, or stylish items, here are the best fashion apps for Android.
Etsy is one of the most popular independent marketplaces on the Internet. It features millions of one-of-a-kind items by tons and tons of excellent artists and other types of creators. That includes things like jewelry, art, clothing, and even the occasional piece of furniture. The app also includes Android Pay support, shipping details, communication with shop owners directly through the app, and more. It might not follow every new fashion trend in the book. However, something about one-of-a-kind simply never loses its charm. The app is completely free and there are some truly excellent items here.
Hush is an online market place with a focus on beauty products. Its inventory includes various types of makeup, nail polish, skincare products, and various tools like brushes. The app works like most store apps. You can browse the inventory, add stuff to wish lists, get notifications about sales, and order stuff directly from the app. It’s not quite as good as the iOS version. For instance, the iOS version lets you track your order much better than the Android version. However, the developers are working out those types of problems. It’s a good place to surf for various beauty items to compliment whatever outfits you plan on wearing. The prices are a little high, but such is the pain of makeup.
Price: Free / $10 per month
Ipsy is another store app similar to Hush. You can browse and purchase makeup, brushes, various skin care products, nail polish, and other beauty and care products. Ipsy sets itself apart with a $10 per month Ipsy Bag. It’s a small assortment of semi-randomized beauty products in a little makeup bag. You pay $10 per month and it ships to your door. The app also includes video content from Ipsy creators, including founder Michelle Phan. This is an excellent, inclusive app that sells makeup, fun little bags of random stuff, and tons of videos with beauty tips, makeup application tutorials, and stuff like that. It’s an all-in-one sort of fashion app.
Pinterest is another great app for ideas. People post all kinds of stuff on Pinterest. Sometimes, that includes new fashion trends, ideas for homemade items, and one-of-a-kind kind of stuff. You pin things that you like to your profile for future reference. It’s a social media app with a variety of sharing features. Thus, it’s really easy to use with friends. Even so, using it by yourself isn’t a bad experience by any means. The app is entirely free and many other apps integrate directly with it. It’s a good spot to see what’s trending in the fashion community and also a good spot to find those rare gems.
Poshmark is another one of the more popular fashion apps. It’s an online marketplace similar to sites like Craigslist or eBay. People sell their cloths, shoes, or other fashion elements on the service. It’s good for both buying and selling. You can get rid of cloths that didn’t work out or ones you don’t need. Meanwhile, those looking for that fashion can pick out a new outfit from your old wardrobe. The selling fees are a little steep and some people may over-value their fashion items a little bit. However, by and large, it’s a fun site to poke around and you can find the occasional good deal on some pretty neat items.
Sephora is a popular beauty store. It carries things like makeup, nail polish, skin care products, and various types of beauty tools. It’s not terribly different from Hush or Ipsy. The app itself is actually pretty decent. You can take a selfie and upload it to the app. From there, you can virtually try on makeup in various shades to see if it works with your skin color, eye color, etc. That’s good news because Sephora has a lot of options. Additionally, the app includes beauty tips, some hair stuff, some fragrance stuff, and a gift finder guide. Customers also earn rewards after purchases. The place is really expensive, but the makeup is also really good. Again, such is the pain of makeup.
Tumblr is another social media service with good fashion stuff. You can follow basically whatever you want. That, of course, includes fashion. There are some popular fashion personalities on the site along with some hobbyists and other types of people. It’s also a good spot to find one-of-a-kind items, fashion ideas, and newer fashion trends. Of course, there are also beauty tips, tutorials, and various other learning tools as well. It can be a pain to find, but there are plenty of blogs on the service. Reddit is another decent app with a strong beauty and fashion community. Simply surf the subreddits until you find what you want.
Twitter is good for fashion the same way Tumblr is. There are a ton of famous personalities, models, fashion bloggers, and other important people on Twitter. They deliver tons of useful information, links to the latest stuff, and the latest news. Twitter isn’t great for a lot of things because it is so divisive. However, it’s quite good for stuff like fashion. There are also other Twitter apps if the official one isn’t working out for you.
Sometimes it’s not about looking for new stuff, but sorting out what you have. Your Closet can help with that. It helps you organize your closet for easy organization and it helps you choose outfits a little more easily. You can take pictures of your items and they end up in the app. You then pick the top, bottom, and accessories for your outfit from the app instead of rifling through your closet. There aren’t a ton of fashion apps out there that do stuff like this. Your Closet is just among the most competent. You can add an unlimited number of cloths, edit your stuff, categorize your clothing, and even search by color. As far as we can tell, the app is entirely free with no ads or in-app purchases.
Price: Free / $12.99 per month
YouTube is kind of an obvious choice for fashion apps. There are tons of fashion people, bloggers, personalities, and other types on YouTube. It’s a good place to see the latest fashions, listen to discussion, and more. There is even the occasional live stream of a fashion event. Beauty and fashion YouTubers are seriously popular as well. There isn’t much else to say, really. YouTube is simply a must. You can pay $12.99 per month to remove ads, download videos for later, and play videos in the background while doing other things.
Department store apps
No selection of fashion apps is complete without store apps. Most department stores, specialty stores, national chains, and other types of clothing, furniture, and jewelry stores have an online presence. We don’t have a definitive list of what does or doesn’t have an app. Thus, you may have to search for your favorites on your own. However, the mobile apps usually have a larger inventory, the capability to buy online, and exclusive sales for mobile app users. You probably already have a few of these downloaded and that’s a good thing.
