This week's new fashion applications for the iPhone do all the sorting for you, whether it's outfit inspiration from the streets or the best deal at your local mall.

Chicfeed

This app works like a Dstill (see below) for street style, bringing you updates from the most popular blogs, including the Sartorialist, Face Hunter, and Altamira.

Social Mall

Social Mall gives you the best local malls and corresponding special offers. Not sure if you should buy an item? Share it with your friends via the app and get their instant feedback. A movie or dinner after shopping? Send out a group invite to other iPhone users. US customers only.

Next

The British fashion label has launched its application that not only lets users shop online and browse the stock of hundreds of stores worldwide but also gives you styling ideas and the season's key trends for inspiration.

Tattoo Patterns

Spray- and paint-on tattoos were all over the runways last fashion week from Rodarte in New York to Jean Paul Gaultier in Paris, and now this new app, priced at $1.99, gives you almost 130 different patterns, no matter if you want the real deal or not.

DealSpot

Online shopping is getting competitive: DealSpot gives you the best deals and enters you into its 'Hall of Fame' depending on your sale shopping skills.

Victoria's Secret

The lingerie label has released its own iPhone app, coinciding with its annual fashion show, which aired December 1. Store openings, photo shoots, backstage pictures and videos are now right at your fingertips, and users will even be able to vote for upcoming 'Angels.'

Currently only available to readers in the US (New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco), this application gives you the best shops recommended by Elle magazine's editors and based on your personal preferences.

This new shopping guide launched for Independent Retail Week, which ended November 20, gives fashionistas not only what's in stock in the city's stores but also nearby promotions and fashion events based on your postal code. The free application is available for New York only at present.

Baby Phat Cam

The streetstyle label turns users into dress-up dolls with this app that lets you choose looks from Kimora Lee Simmons' collections and virtually try them on by using your own uploaded photos.

Ian's Laces 43 ways to lace shoes

This app (selling for $1.99 in the US iTunes store) lists ways like "Lattice" or "Zipper Lacing" to lace up your shoes beyond the standard cris-cross method. Users can mix and match the 43 lacing patterns for a total of 98 possibilities.

Easy Stitch

Providing visual and written instructions, Easy Stitch gives step-by-step instructions for embroidery, knitting and crocheting. All the instructions are stored with the app (which costs $2.99 in the US iTunes store), so there's no need for the internet.
