The App store’s Lifestyle section is packed with fashion apps and some great tips on style. For what to wear, GQ, Vogue and Cosmopolitan are on the Newsstand, and many shops have app catalogues. But for more interactive advice, try ASOS, Snapette or Trendshop.
Many make-up companies have their own custom apps; but for more objective ideas, DailyGlow.com and TotalBeauty.com both have review apps, and Lookz also offers great advice. Grooming is important to both genders though, so dapper chaps should be using Dolce&Gabbana: Rules for the Modern Gentleman, and Cool Guy – Style App for Men.
