If you can't make a fashion purchase without getting your clothing-loving clique's approval first, your fave new app has just arrived.
Net-a-Porter, the e-commerce luxury site that brings you high fashion at high speed, has just launched Net Set, an app that beautifully blends online shopping with social media. Yes, you can finally shop in real time with your besties without ever leaving home.
Gathering designers, celebs, bloggers, shoppers and trendsetters under the same digitally dapper roof, the app will make it possible to get your friends' — and the higher-ups' (like Julia Restoin Roitfeld or Gary Pepper Girl's Nicole Warne) — opinions on looks before you buy. Create a profile, curate lists of must-have items, comment on others' lists you love and build a feed full of everything from shoppable Net-a-Porter picks to self-snapped street style photos.
If you find yourself particularly enchanted by a bouquet at your neighborhood corner store, you can take a pic, upload it to the Net Set, and the app will find similarly hued garments to try out. Really wish you could wear the pattern embroidered on that throw pillow? The Net Set will find the next-best-thing.
You can even join a "Style Tribe," which bands similar style-minded individuals together in the name of common causes like double denim, rock chic, all-black, bohemian-inspired and more. "Admire" different users in lieu of "Following" them, and keep up with the app's internationally trending shoes, bags and clothes via the live feed.
Will the Net Set app replace Instagram for fashionistas? Only time will tell.
Check out the Net Set app for yourself, now available on the iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch. Happy hunting, fashion lovers!
