The best personal stylist apps include:
- Smart Closet
- Save Your Wardrobe

Some of these apps are free and some charge a fee.
In this article, we’ll take a closer look at these 18 personal stylist apps. I’ll break them down into which ones are free and which ones you have to pay to use. I’ll also explain the key features of each as well as the pros and cons so that you can decide which one(s) you may want to try out!
10 Best Free Personal Stylist Apps
You don’t have to pay to have a personal stylist. Whether you’re on a budget or don’t like spending money when there are free options, why not give one of these 10 free personal stylist app options a try?
1. Smart Closet
Smart Closet is a personal stylist app developed in Cairo, Egypt. The app is available for free download through both the Apple App Store and Google Play. Smart Closet is designed with both women and men in mind.
The app allows you to easily organize and manage your own personal wardrobe and create looks from it or outfits with clothing from famous retailers and brands. Of course, it will cost if you buy any clothes and there are even subscription features. But, it doesn’t cost you anything to download and use the app for your own clothes or to “window” shop.
- Most features are free
- Designed for men and women
- Can be downloaded for Apple and Android devices
- Some features require a subscription
2. Save Your Wardrobe
If you value sustainability, then Save Your Wardrobe should be a definite contender for free personal stylist apps. As with Smart Closet, Save Your Wardrobe is designed for both men and women and is available for both Apple and Android devices. It was developed in London, UK.
What sets Save Your Wardrobe apart is that it works primarily with clothes from your closet instead of encouraging you to buy new clothing. You can upload every article of clothing you own to the app and Save Your Wardrobe will help you get the most out of your clothing by giving you different outfit suggestions based on factors such as the weather and your lifestyle. The bottom line is that you can save money and help the environment by wearing what you already have for longer, just in different ways.
- Suitable for men and women
- Available for iOS and Android
- Uses artificial intelligence to create outfits
- No shopping feature
3. Style DNA
Style DNA is another app that uses artificial intelligence (AI) to help you curate and create outfits. You can take a picture of some of your favorite items, and Style DNA’s AI will help you find new ways to wear them.
Another cool thing about Style DNA is that you can answer questionnaires to figure out what colors and styles of clothing suit you best. The app also offers recommendations based on your personal “style DNA” that shows you where to buy clothing that suits you and where and how to wear it. The downside is that, as of now, Style DNA is only available to download from the App Store.
- Uses AI to curate outfits
- Offers recommendations on personal colors/styles
- Shows you new ways to wear favorite items
- Not available for Android devices
Nordstrom is a popular and well-known retailer that recently closed its clothing subscription service Trunk Club. But, Trunk Club closed to focus more on their personal, free styling services.
It’s easy to browse through their curated looks on the Nordstrom website or through the free Nordstrom app, which is available for download for iOS and Android. If you want an even more personalized touch, you can chat through the app with a stylist, schedule a virtual appointment with a stylist, or set up an in-person appointment at a Nordstrom store.
- Access to stylists through the Nordstrom app
- Browse already curated looks
- Chat with a personal stylist or set up an appointment
- Doesn’t allow you to use your own wardrobe
- No dedicated personal stylist app
Renoon was created in Amsterdam and is 100% free to download from the App and Google Play Stores and use. As with Save Your Wardrobe, Renoon focuses on sustainability in fashion. Based on your style and sustainability preferences, Renoon gives you clothing options from retailers and sources that share your values. However, it doesn’t appear that Renoon works with clothing that you already own and it’s more for helping you shop for new or vintage but sustainable clothing.
- Keeps sustainability in mind
- Matches you with clothing based on your preferences
- Available for iOS and Android
- Doesn’t work with your existing closet
ShopLook is one of the highest-rated apps on our list, with good ratings on both the Google Play Store and the Apple App Store. It was created in San Francisco, California, focusing on fashion and community. It’s sort of like a combination of Pinterest and Instagram but for fashion only.
So while you can create outfits intended for yourself, you can also create mood boards based on certain themes or participate in challenges. You can link clothing that you use in your mood boards for other people to shop from. This is a great app for the fashion-minded, not necessarily those looking to have an outfit created for them from their own wardrobe.
- Highly rated
- Great for the fashion-minded
- Outfits that fit certain themes
- Doesn’t work with your closet
7. 30 Wears
30 Wears is another highly-rated app that focuses on sustainability. The app works with clothing in your own closet, encouraging you to wear each piece of clothing at least 30 times. You can upload each garment and name it whatever you want. The app tracks what you wear, how you wear it, and how many times you’ve worn it.
The broad idea is to get you into thinking about whether you will wear a particular garment 30 times before you buy it. Since the app focuses on what you already own, there is no shopping feature. But, this neat app is available for both iOS and Android devices.
- Tracks how many times you wear something
- Designed to change your shopping mindset
- Available for iOS and Android
- No shopping feature
If you want to share outfits and ideas with other fashion-minded people, then Combyne is a great app. This app is available for iOS and Android devices and is great for trendsetters and influencers.
Combyne allows you to create outfits using pieces from hundreds of different brands. After creating your looks, you can share them with other people to get their feedback. You can also provide feedback on others’ outfits as well. The downside is that the app doesn’t necessarily create outfits for you.
- Great community interface
- Available for iOS and Android
- Doesn’t curate outfits for you
9. The Hunt
The Hunt is a crowd-sourcing fashion app that has several functions. The main function is to help people track down items of clothing that they’ve been hunting for. Maybe they’re looking for the exact garment, a less expensive version, or a similar style.
But, the app also has a “Style Me” feature in which you give information about yourself and others using the app and can offer you free fashion advice. The downside to this app is that it’s mainly used by women, so men may not have as much look with their fashion conundrums.
- Free fashion advice from other uses
- Users can help you track down certain clothing items
- Men may not have as much success with the app
Latitude is a free personal stylist app developed in New York City, one of the world’s fashion capitals. It’s available for download for both Apple and Android devices and is free to download and use. You can upload your own wardrobe, receive styling tips, and browse a daily feed of inspiration that suits your style.
If you don’t want a certain garment anymore or want something new, you can use the fashion resale marketplace feature and get some new clothing for lower prices. You can also receive style tips and tricks. Even though this app may not have as many features as others, it’s still a great choice, especially for buying and selling clothing on top of personal styling.
- Available on iOS and Android
- Offers a resale marketplace feature
- Not as many features as other apps
7 Best Paid Personal Stylist Apps
If you don’t mind paying for a personal stylist that can curate outfits for you, then there are several paid personal stylist apps. Most of these apps work the same way. You either pay for a subscription, or you pay for a stylist consultation. The stylist will create outfits for you and you can choose to buy them or not. Here, we’ll look at and compare 7 of the best paid personal stylist apps.
Before I get into the paid personal stylist subscription services that have an app, there’s one more app that I need to mention. Stylebook isn’t a personal stylist subscription service; but rather, this is a paid app. However, you only have to pay a one-time download fee for the app and then have access to everything that the app has to offer. As of now, the app is only available for Apple devices.
Stylebook works similarly to many of the free apps above. Essentially, you upload items in your closet, and Stylebook helps you to organize them and create outfits. You can even organize your outfits based on the day you want to wear them, which is great for those who like to plan our outfits. There is also a shuffle feature that allows you to choose different items and the app will shuffle the items to create a unique outfit. You can also use the inspiration feature to save outfits that you find online.
- Easy closet and outfit organization
- Assign outfits to different days
- One-time download fee
- Only available for iOS
12. Stitch Fix
Stitch Fix is perhaps one of the most well-known personal stylist apps/websites. The app itself is free to download, but the service itself costs. The general idea is that you take a “style quiz” and receive boxes of 5 articles of clothing based on your preferences. The clothing is curated by a stylist.
Each time you receive a box, it costs $20. You can try on the outfits and only pay for what you decide to keep, but you only have a few days to try them on and decide. The $20 will be credited to what you decide to keep. But, you still have to pay $20 each time even if you don’t keep any clothing. Even if you decide to keep the clothing, some pieces can be pretty expensive.
- Curated clothing by a personal stylist
- Only pay for the clothing you want to keep
- Clothing pieces can be expensive
- It costs a $20 styling fee to have a box curated for you
Wantable is similar to Stitch Fix but is geared toward both men and women. Women can choose from two different “edits”: business/casual and athleisure. Men can only choose athletic wear. Wantable is different from other companies because there are 7 clothing items in their boxes instead of 5.
Wantable still charges a $20 styling fee for each box which can be applied to clothing you want to buy. The clothing also tends to be less expensive than other companies. Wantable also offers discounts often if you purchase so many items of clothing. Anyone can use the website, but the app is only available for Apple devices.
- Great for men and women
- Clothing is less expensive
- You can choose more clothing per box
- The app is only available for iOS
- Non-refundable $20 styling fee per box
Wishi is free to download (from the App Store only) and there’s a 7-day free trial, but after the trial, it will cost to use it. The app works similar to Stitch Fix by connecting you to a personal stylist who will help create outfits based on your preferences and budget. You can choose whether to buy the outfits.
The stylists at Wishi can even help you curate outfits based on what you already own, although this service still costs after the free trial. But the good news is that Wishi gives back to society by donating a portion of the proceeds from their styling services to support the fight for racial justice.
- Help from a real stylist
- Can create outfits based on what you already own
- Donates a portion of their proceeds
- Only available on iOS
15. Daily Look
Daily Look is one of the oldest personal stylist services on this list, created in 1998. The company now has an app for iOS and Android devices, although the iOS app has much better ratings. It’s designed for women and operates similarly to Stitch Fix.
With Daily Look, you take a style quiz and receive up to 12 items of clothing per month or per quarter, depending on your preference. Each box costs $40, but if you purchase from the box, the service is free. There are tons of popular clothing brands you can get through Daily Look.
- Receive up to 12 items of clothing
- Free service if you make a purchase
- Lots of popular brands
- Styling costs more than other companies
- The Android app may not work as well as the iOS app
Armoire is a clothing rental service with a free app for both Android and iOS. The service is a bit pricier than similar companies, but you get free personal styling, free shipping, and free cleaning, and the company covers minor damages to the clothing. You can choose from 4 items per month or 7 items per month, depending on how much you want to pay.
Although the company is designed as a clothing rental service, you can purchase any clothing that you want to keep. Just know that you will be paying a fee just to rent the clothing, and another price if you want to keep any of it. But, you do get to keep any clothing until your next box arrives, even if you don’t decide to keep it.
- Free styling and shipping
- You get to keep clothing for longer
- Option to buy clothing if you want to keep it
- More expensive than other services
- You pay for the rental plus the clothing you want to keep
17. Personal Shopper by Prime Wardrobe
Personal Shopper by Prime Wardrobe is Amazon’s answer to the many personal stylist/clothing subscriptions on the market. They don’t have their own app, but you can access this service through the Amazon app. The styling fee is cheaper than other companies and you only pay $4.99 monthly for personal styling services.
Amazon gives you clothing options from third-party sources based on your style preferences. You can purchase what you want from their suggestions. However, you must pay for the clothing before trying it on. But if you decide you don’t like it, you can always return it.
- Cheaper than other services
- Clothing options from popular retailers
- You get Amazon’s customer service/ease of return
- No dedicated app
- Must purchase clothing before trying it on
So as you can see, there are a variety of personal stylist apps to choose from in 2023. Some are free, such as Smart Closet and Save Your Wardrobe. Others such as Stitch Fix and Wantable require payment for styling services but seem to be worth the investment. If none are for you, there are plenty of others you can also try out. If you found this article helpful, share it with others.
