Browse the shops, connect with other fashionistas and share your street-style photos – all from your smartphone

1. Style.com

Free; iOS

This is the go-to source not only for up-to-the minute fashion news, show reviews and catwalk images, but an extensive archive that goes back to autumn/winter 2000. There are also interviews, beauty news and trend pieces to fill the gap between fashion weeks.

2. Chic Feed

Free; iOS, Android

Street-style fashion sometimes rivals the catwalks as a source of inspiration and entertainment. This app compiles in one place the most popular streetstyle snaps on the internet from sites such as The Satorialist, Face Hunter, Lookbook and Altamira NYC.

3. ShopStyle

Free; iOS

Window shopping online can be a bit of a chore as you visit each of your favourite sites in turn, but this handy app compiles them in one place. Search through 2,000 brands, including high street and designer labels and filter by price, colour, and discount. For those who are watching the pennies, you can request sale alerts for your favourite products.

4. Style Book

£2.49, iOS

Who wasn’t envious of Cher’s computerised wardrobe in Clueless? This nifty app is a pocket-size version. Simply upload pictures of your clothes and create packing lists for holidays or pre-plan your outfits to make mornings that much easier.

5. Fashion Terms

£0.69, iOS

Deerstalker, bolero, brocade, Mary Jane... if it’s all Greek to you, this fashion dictionary includes all the basic terms you may need to translate. Well laid-out, terms are organised alphabetically and divided in to garments, accessories and textiles and some definitions are aided by a descriptive drawing,  too.

6. Go Try It On

Free, iOS

Even those who prefer shopping alone could occasionally do with a second opinion, and this app provides just that. Upload a photo of you in the outfit you’re not sure about to the Go Try It On community and you’ll have a response that helps you to decide in no time.

7. Gilt Groupe

Free, iOS, Android, BlackBerry

Online shopping has made bargain hunters of us all, and this handy app makes it even easier. It lets you access the latest sales for women, men and children, indicating the hours each deal has left and which designer is next in the list. It has a handy zoom option to scrutinise items before checkout, which you can do from the app, too.

8. Trendabl

Free, iOS

In the vein of Instagram and Facebook, this is a social network just for fashion fans. Upload a photo, filter it and tag it to allow users to browse photos by categories such as skirts, swimwear, or shoes.

9. Upper Street

Free, iOS

This store’s app offers a portable shoe studio to design one-of-a-kind footwear which can then be made to order. It’s a fun, user-friendly way to play with colour-palettes, styles and heel height.

10. Net-a-porter magazine

Free, iOS

Net-a-porter.com was the gamechanger in online shopping, and the relaunched weekly magazine – headed by Lucy Yeomans, formerly of Harper’s Bazaar – hopes to do the same for online editorial with exclusive video content and recommendations tailored to you.
