I am having so much fun and am getting organized and saving money in the process. I have been purging my wardrobe as I take pictures of individual pieces. If I can’t think of an outfit I can create around a piece, it’s gone! At the same time the app has helped me find ways to use garments I haven’t been wearing. I know some think the random outfits the app creates aren’t what they should be but mixing things up in a completely random way gets my creativity going so I’m fine with the app being unencumbered with any fashion rules. I have identified pieces for my wish list—specific things I can use in multiple outfits and I’ve taken things off my long-standing wish list because I can see they won’t be used in enough ways to make it a good buy. The app lets me really identify which brands, styles, sizes I should prioritize so I’m doing less impulse shopping. I can even keep track of price per wear if I want to feel particularly frugal. Just having lots of fun and my wardrobe has never been more organized or valued. I’ve experienced a bit of a learning curve but am enjoying the process of cataloging my clothes since I found a place where pictures can be conveniently taken and learned to use the filter on my iPhone camera to get the color as close to true as possible.
Great concept, needs some work
I’m the type of person who wakes up every morning and spends 15+ minutes figuring out what to wear for the day. I really was hoping this app could take some of that time away from my morning routine but so far it’s fallen a little short in that regard. Conceptually it’s brilliant, and occasionally the app provides some great suggestions for outfits. I can say I have a relatively big wardrobe and I’ve entered around 100 items onto the app, mostly shirts. My main problems with this app are the variety in outfit recommendations and the number of items the app pics per outfits. For the variety, you have the option to swipe left or right, denoting if you dislike or like an outfit. It doesn’t really seem that the apps algorithm takes into consideration your swipes, though. I’ve been presented with the same outfit multiple times even after indicating I disliked it. As for the number of items, if you select “shirt, pants, shoes and accessory” you may only get shoes and a shirt, and I wish there was an option for you to set a mandatory vs. option item that you’d like to see in the outfit. It does take a while to upload all your clothing images (the app crashed for me when I tried to upload more then 40 images at a time) and I think the user interface could be a little more friendly. If you’re looking for an app that will give you ideas then I’d definitely recommend downloading the app. I wouldn’t rely on it for every day outfit selection.
CAN Work Amazingly
This app does not really create great outfits for you but instead has you choose from a list of categories like shirt, pants, shoes, earrings. Well when you pick from those categories it will give you a random item from them. I suggest making tons of categories of your own which it does allow you to do. For example I have different categories so that I can pick sleeveless plain color blouse, kimono, jeans, booties and earrings. I know that this will make a better outfit then it picking any bottom, any top any shoes. Because trust and believe without this it will give you a button down blouse, sweats, high heels and a kimono yikes!!! But once you do that and make it work for you it will give you random selections that maybe you wouldn’t think of and then you can save the outfits for later use!
It does have a feature where you can create your own outfits. I wish that when you pick your own outfits they wouldn’t just have the clothes in your whole closet in a random order that you have to scroll through it makes it take so much longer! That’s an easy fix though if they choose to but I see tons of potential and will keep using it!
Really like it! Some issues.
By pls be better
I have a lot of fun with this. You have to do a lot of information input to get the app to work correctly and intuitively, but once that’s done, it’s really fun and gives some interesting ideas that I would never have thought to pair together! However, recently the app has been acting oddly. If only recommends the same one or two pieces of clothing over and over again in outfit after outfit. It sometimes doesn’t include pieces of clothing that I request. (Ex: I’ll put in Accessory, Shoes, Top, Pants and it’ll only give me a top and pants.) And I’ll go through twenty looks and it’ll have the same pair of pants in every one, even though I have MANY MANY pairs inputted. I don’t understand why this is. I keep trying to go to some sort of app support, but it literally won’t load the link so I can’t reach out to help. Is this some sort of processing issue? Buffering? I would really like to know. I went from opening it everyday to barely wanting to even look at it, because it’s just giving me the exact same outfit every single time. One or two tops, the same pants, the same jacket, the same shoes. And it’s always the first one I inputted in that category. Pls fix this so I can enjoy the app again and give a higher rating!
I have a styling issue, I have many shirts and flannels that I don’t wear but I never want to give them up. With this app, even with its flaws, it shows me what shirt I should wear. This app allows you to set a day for an outfit, to pick outfits you can swipe like dating apps and save these outfits and view them whenever. There are separate categories that can added, or removed. It doesn’t give you the best styling options, it just seems to throw whatever from categories of your choosing together. However, there is a community tab where you can have them suggest outfits. This is the second time I have had this app, the first time I only had five shirts and two pairs of jeans, but now I have more options added to the closet. Pureple is worth the try, it is free and can show you what is in your closet without having to get up out of bed. (Once you take the pictures of your clothes) it is fun for me because I don’t sleep and this adds to my list of things I can do without waking my siblings and father. My mom doesn’t sleep, she likes to vacuum instead. I took the quiet approach.
Great app concept - but try a different one
This app gave me a taste, and then totally failed in execution. The app allows you to filter your pieces in tons of ways (but never delete the default options) but to build an outfit you just get a small scroll of all the pictures you’ve ever uploaded with no sorting. When you’ve made an outfit, the example photo it shows in your outfits tab is just one photo from the outfit, no matter how you adjust the outfit layout photo. The app’s “suggested outfits” also don’t allow you to pick multiple categories for certain areas of the body - meaning when you want to build an outfit you HAVE to chose upfront if you want to wear pants, jeans, a skirt, or shorts - and that’s just from the default options. On top of that, you have to upload each photo individually, despite the option to upload from camera roll literally having the words “multi-select” next to it. I tried holding, dragging, and even 3D Touch but the only option that did anything was tapping on a photo, uploading just the single piece. Aside from providing you photos of all the pieces you own, something you can do with photo albums in your camera roll just as well (and perhaps better), this app is basically useless. Plus, the interface is confusing and almost heinously ugly.
great concept, but could be cleaned up a bit more
I’ve been using this app for about a week so far, and I love it, but it could definitely use a bit of tweaking. I like the feature that allows other people to make outfits for you, but the ones the app puts together are just random combinations and often don’t look very good. I think that the interface could be made more user-friendly too, a lot of features are way too hard to find in the app, and I’ve found a few bugs, for example, when ads pop up they usually crash the whole app, and if you’re in the middle of uploading things it automatically saves them before you’re done so it takes even longer because you have to go into every piece of clothing individual to change the color, category, etc. Overall I like using the app a lot, but it could definitely be so much better if some minor changes and bug fixes were made.
Good not perfect app
I agree with others that this app is not great for making outfits automatically. However, it was really helpful for me to see my entire wardrobe in one place. If most of your wardrobe has been purchased in the last 10 years it’s likely that you can find all the images online simply by googling the item. For me, I was able to find about 80% of my wardrobe online. It was easy to just screenshot the item, save it to my photos, then download a bunch of photos at one time. It’s quite enlightening when you see your whole wardrobe in one place. You can really see what you tend to buy over and over and what you’re missing. Creating outfits on your own is the way to go. I haven’t liked any of the outfits the app has created for me.
I’ve sent the app creators several questions and have never received a response, which is disappointing....

I’ve been a user of the app since I heard about in Safiya Nygaard’s video “I let an app pick my clothes for a week.” Since I am someone who has been late (and I mean l a t e ) to classes over choosing an outfit, I immediately downloaded it. This was a couple years ago and it was fine, I just didn’t like my clothes. Fast forward to now and DO like my clothes now, I am a bit “meh.” It didn’t really change in terms of algorithm or even just updating the design, and now it shows adds every other swipe when choosing an outfit, and it won’t let you even exit out most of the time. Great concept, but the execution is lacking, unfortunately, because this could be really productive if I didn’t have to keep exiting out every 30 seconds :/ (yes, I could go premium, however, in my earnest not to spend money on essentially frivolous things while getting my nursing degree, I will opt out of that. So there is me contradicting myself. My argumentative writing course DID come in handy after all, fancy that.)
Good but could be better
I think the idea of the app, being able to get outfit ideas with your own clothing is a brilliant, but I have a few suggestions and an issue with the app.
#1: It doesnt seem to take consideration into your likes and dislikes. Whats the point of swiping if its going to show me the same thing I disliked three times?? It claims the first 10 or so results will be a little random but even after I sit and swipe for a while it still appears to be randomized.
#2: The advertisements are kind of annoying. Now I understand that not everything is free and that people need to make their money but it claims a 15 second ad will be shown, but when I click the button, a 30 second ad shows instead, which is sorta irritating. Now this may just be an issue with my phone or a glitch of some sort, and if I learn that it is I will certainly change the review.
#3: There should be an option to have mandatory items and optional. I saw someone else put this a different review so creds to them but I just thought that was a great idea to add into your app.
and lastly... #4
The app simply put is.. well.. dull. The design is just plain white and purple. Of course this isn’t an actual issue its just something that I would change.
Thats pretty much it, there are smaller issues in the app like a few bugs and glitches but im 95% sure that my phone is the one causing it so..
Anyways thanks for reading and I hope you consider these things.
