We all need a little outside style advice from time to time. Just think of the last time you were at work after a harried morning commute, wondering, “Does this outfit work?” Or maybe you were at the mall asking yourself “Should I buy this?”
Now you can get honest, instantaneous advice on the go. Soon I’ll be starting a new gig as an online style advisor for Glamour magazine’s new Ask-a-Stylist iPhone app. Powered by San Mateo-based Like.com, the app is free and super easy to use.
Just upload a photo of an outfit, type your question and click submit. Within about three minutes or less, you’ll get sound, real-time style advice from a Glamour magazine-trained expert.
So far questions I have seen have ranged from “Which dress should I pick for my sweet sixteen?” to “What coat should I wear to work with khakis and a polo shirt?” Apparently, the ladies aren’t the only ones getting in on the online fashion action.
You can also request particular stylists from the national team, so be sure to look for me!
