Style Apps to Help You Dress Better

By on August 9, 2014

We live in times when our smartphones have started to become an extension of our lives, more like another helpful and compact organ of the body that can be easily carried along wherever we go. While cynics may argue that prolonged use of mobile phones is unnecessary and unhealthy, one thing’s for sure – they make our lives extremely convenient. With so many style apps to choose from and each one is worthwhile, why wouldn’t we become attached to our phones?

For most women, deciding what to wear every morning feels like a challenge, I speak from personal experience. It’s almost as if we never have anything good to wear, even though our closet overflows with clothes. Organizing them seems like such a task! I mean, how are we supposed to keep track of everything that we have? Apart from the oh-so-useful and versatile hangers (that make it so easy to locate specific clothes), there’s not a lot of strategies to help keep things organized.

This is when the smartphone comes into play! By simply downloading and using the following 5 style apps, you can sort your wardrobe out and banish the everyday-morning-dressing blues from your life altogether.
