Even if you haven't used Outfits by Cladwell to help you get dressed, we're guessing you still wear clothes - at least we hope so. So, if you're interested in wearing clothes, then you just might be interested in this app. And here's a guide on how it works.
Meet Outfits by Cladwell.
Outfits for iOS is like having a personal stylist that helps you get dressed every day. It takes the weather into consideration and even helps you decide what new items would go best with the clothes you already own.
Whether you're still learning the basics or looking for some pro tips, we're here to help you get the most out of your Outfits app.
Outfits by Cladwell: The Beginner's Guide
2. Add Your First Items
When you log in for the first time, Outfits will ask you to tap on items that are similar to those in your closet. They do not have to be exact - just something with a similar base color and style, so it can be paired with complimentary items and so that you'll recognize it when it gets recommended to you.
Only add items from the current season and items that you would wear during a typical work week Monday through Friday. That way, each daily outfit recommendation will be suited to your daily lifestyle.
Right now, the 3,000 items (!) that you can choose from to add to your closet are geared towards your work week, meaning that we don't have a lot of athletic or formal wear. So, focus in on what you wear from 9 to 5, and remember that just because we don't recommend sweatpants doesn't mean we don't slip into ours too at the end of the day.
3. Outfit Recommendations
Each day, Outfits will recommend three outfit suggestions to you based on the weather outside and the last time you wore your clothing. Do you like to plan the night before? Or, do you need to take the day as it comes? You can personalize when Outfits gives you your daily outfit recommendations.
By tapping on "Allowed Notifications", you can set a personal notification for what time every day you'd like to see new outfit recommendations.
By tapping on "Allowed Location", you'll get outfit recommendations based on the weather outside.
4. Log your daily outfit
Most women only wear 20% of what's in their closets. Logging your daily outfits allows you to keep track of what you wear on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis, so you track what percent of your closet you actually wear and which items get the most use.
Be sure to log your outfits every day. Don't be afraid to log an outfit even if you've added something to it to make it your own. That way, you can look back at your history page and see what you've been wearing.
If you notice that you're not wearing something very often (or at all), it should probably become the easiest thing you've decluttered from your life this week.
5. Manage Your Closet
You’ll get the most out of the Outfits app by curating your closet according to what you wear on a daily basis... and just what you actually like wearing! This way, each and every recommendation will be suited to your lifestyle and your tastes. Tap into each item to see the outfits it creates; this helps you see the potential of each piece of your wardrobe.
If you find yourself not wanting to add certain items from your real closet into the app, it's probably a sign that you don't love the item. In other words, it might be time to let it go.
If you're not wearing a certain item because it's not in season, but you still love the item, just move it to storage. You can do this by clicking into an item and simply switching the toggle by "include in daily outfits?"
When adding more items to your closet, don't forget to use the filters! (So you don't have to scroll through hundreds of tops.)
6. Discover Page
Never ever go shopping without a plan again. This page shows you suggested items to add to your wardrobe, highlighting their interchangeability by showing you how many outfits each would create if you owned it. Think of this page as saving you from the one-time-wear-dress that you'll regret buying the day after you buy it.
If you've decided an item would be a good addition to your closet, tap the heart in the corner to add it to your wish list. (Let this wish list be your shopping guide next time around!)
