Khevna Pandit checks out the StyleCracker app to find out what simplified shopping is like
Keeping up with the latest technology, online shopping websites are slowly stepping up their game by moving to a much more simplified version and switching to mobile applications. With an application for almost anything and everything, there is a constant need to be user-friendly and stand out in order to gain popularity. StyleCracker is a personalised styling platform that offers users a unique fashion experience by blending high quality styling with technology to make it accessible to a larger audience.
After downloading StyleCracker, you will need a Facebook or Google+ account to log in. Before I could get on with browsing, I was faced with a series of questions, which the application requires to update your profile. The inputs included what body type I am, and had me select my personal style and pick my budget, which helped to considerably narrow down the vast collection that is available on the application. After the interesting start, StyleCracker will then lead you to your feed and you will be greeted by handpicked outfit ideas based on the preferences you selected at the beginning!
StyleCracker teams your favorite outfit with trendy accessories and chic handbags to complete your entire look. Your other option is to click on the Discover tab, which will lead you to a highly organised page with outfit ideas that you have not already put in your preferences for, in case you want to see what else is out there. Another unique feature also includes directly browsing through your favourite brands from a list of several well-known ones. StyleCracker doesn’t confine you to selecting clothes though. It also helps you to pick accessories from a massive selection. The last tab on the list includes an impressive feature that allows you to speak to a stylist for fashion advice, although I wouldn’t recommend that if you are still using a 2G internet connection or are in an area without high-speed Wi-Fi!
With an innovative and fresh interface, StyleCracker is a user-friendly application that makes life simpler by helping you to choose the perfect look. However, it does get a little confusing when you’re browsing for specific items that are not mentioned separately, unlike on other shopping applications. Since this is a new feature, it may take a while for you to get the hang of it, but once you do, it will be easy to find the perfect outfit for your next event!
