This is the ideal form of shopping at your fingertips: Fashion shopping apps are advancing the realms of online by going completely mobile – directly on your smart phone! All of these apps are based on existing online shops, but as it happens, the apps are almost a better shopping experience because you literally have every shop at your immediate disposal no matter where you are. These are four shopping apps that we love!
GILT – The app features high-end designer brands like Armani, Calvin Klein and Fred Perry to mention but a few from their massive brand selection at insider prices. The app features daily sales where products will be radically reduced, but you have to be quick because at these favorable rates things are moving fast! Available Android and iPhone.
JackThreads – This is the ideal shop if you are shopping duds for dudes. The selection is a bit younger so this is where you should get your sneaks, tees and hoodies. JackThreads features several sales daily with brands you already know and those you should know. And at up to 80% off retail you can almost always find something. Available Android and iPhone.
Hautelook – This is like talking a virtual stroll through Nordstrom’s, but only with deals and steals at 50-75% below retail price. The deals are limited-time only, which means you need to hop to it if you want to get in on the fun. Available only for iPhone.
Mr. Porter – If you are familiar with the Net-a-Porter (for women) and Mr. Porter (for men) online stores, you know that is where über-luxury lives. The Mr. Porter app is where you go if you want to browse through top luxury brands like Balmain, Alexander McQueen, Maison Martin Margiela and Dior. Mr. Porter doesn’t feature daily sales, but will have seasonal sales (there is one going on right now!). Available only for iPhone.
