Do you remember the movie “Clueless” with Alicia Silverstone? Remember that computer program that helped Cher put together outfits? Well, I’m pretty sure this is that, but in iPhone app form.
Introducing Cloth: the app for the fashionista — or maybe the fashionably challenged? This app lets you snap photos of your favorite outfits, add tags, and even share them with your social networks. You can also organize outfits by different categories, so that you can easily find your favorites later. They also turned being fashionable into a game: collect points and badges for adding and sharing your outfits.
You can choose to send your photos to the main Cloth site instead of just having them in the app. That’s … interesting. I guess this is more of a Hot or Not or How Do I Look idea. As if we need even more places to post photos of ourselves.
I will say, though, that the app interface is easy to use and gorgeous. The design is very sleek.
The app focuses on making sure you don’t forget what you’ve already worn, and therefore make the huge faux pas of wearing the same outfit twice — and how dare you wear the same outfit twice! I say this as I lounge away the afternoon in my Ninja Turtle pajama pants and Aphex Twin hoodie — like a champ. I’m pretty sure I wore this same outfit yesterday, too.
… maybe I do need this app.
What day is it?
