My New Favourite App: Tinder For Clothes

Emma_1

We all have a lot of apps on our phone. The joy of most of my apps (I hope) is that they offer me a way of me saving time, getting information quickly, or give me something to do when I have a bit of time to spare whilst commuting, or waiting around.

Before now, I didn’t feel there was one easy and fun app to help me buy or search for clothes.

You see, online shopping has always proved to be a bit of a hassle for me. I want to use the Internet to browse shops instead of browsing IRL (shops stress me out; don’t get me started on Oxford Circus) so shopping for new bits for my wardrobe whilst lying in bed is a nice idea. But I struggle with finding stuff, knowing which websites to go on, or I miss having that fun feeling of just stumbling across something I like. You know, that buzz you get when you accidentally find something awesome that you would have never known to look for.

So this is why I’m obsessed with a new app called Grabble. This app makes shopping on your phone really super easy, but also it’s fun because you don’t know what you’ll end up finding. The layout is similar to Tinder in the way you swipe right or left depending on whether you like the item or not (you can go back once, if you accidentally swipe the wrong way.) The filtering system is brilliant: you can filter your price range (the app includes both high-end and high-street), as well as by product (so if you’re looking for a handbag, you can just swipe through handbags).

The items available on the app are picked and curated by the Grabble styling team so that it’s really easy to figure out what the Internet has to offer, and whilst finding what’s on trend that season. You can shop from brands such as Zara, Topshop, Acne, Farfetch and Net A Porter (and loads of others). In “My Grabs” you can save the stuff you like in a basket and decide later on purchasing it. “Sale Alerts” gives you a notification whenever anything has a good offer on.

In the photos above I’m wearing three items from Grabble: Topshop Moto oversized boyfriend jeans, Thierry Lasry sunglasses from the Outnet, and Zara zip up jacket.
