You’ve just found the perfect shoes, and even though you definitely don’t need them, you decide to get them anyway. But when you get home, you realize that they really don’t go with anything you own. What are you supposed to do now?
If you’ve ever found yourself in a situation like this, where you find a great piece but realize that it doesn’t match anything you own, Jaqard, a new type of fashion app developed by EMS Style, is your new best friend.
Concept and Functionality:
When you need some fashion advice, Jaqard is there to help. If you want to hear what the community has to say about what would go well with your new purse, all you have to do is take a picture of your accessory or clothing using your iPhone and then upload it onto the app. People will respond by commenting with what they think would go best with that purse or those shoes.
If you’re not looking for anyone’s opinion at the moment, you can always just browse through individual profiles, browse what’s popular and what others are recommending and even make some of your own suggestions. Better yet, you can actually go shopping!
When it comes down to shopping on your phone or your computer, most people still go online shopping on the latter. No one has quite mastered how to do a great job of e-commerce on mobile phones yet, but Jaqard is definitely onto something.
When you choose the shopping bag icon in their navigation, you’re taken to a section where you can browse through all sorts of clothes and jewelry. You can sort by brand, online shopping site or price and filter the types of clothing you want to view.
Fashion items are a major aspect of this site, and they can be found anywhere. If something catches your fancy, all you have to do is touch that item and a really helpful pop-up comes up. This pop-up contains a description of your product, the brand, its price and will even let you add it to a wishlist or take you to the website it’s from.
If you want to message someone in the Jaqard community and compliment them on his or her fashion piece, the app lets you send messages to one another. But if you’re feeling a little lonely in the community, you also have the ability to invite and find friends within the app too.
I am not a fashion-minded person, but even I can relate to and enjoy Jaqard. This app has an impeccable user interface and is extremely easy to use.
It’s perfectly organized, and the concept is fun in that people can easily give and receive fashion advice by picking and choose different articles of clothing and accessories to suggest. It’s a much-needed idea that’s executed brilliantly.
Even though it sounds like a girly app, it is also great for guys, especially if they need help putting an outfit together. They can consult the community and get some great feedback on how to craft the perfect outfit.
I highly recommend downloading Jaqard. It’s an app that caters to both fashionistas and also those still working on finding their sense of style.
Jaqard requires iOS 6.0 or later. Compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. This app is optimized for iPhone 5. A small expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this review.
