Worried about what to wear? Calgary app styles YOU

Have you ever thought, 'Ugh, I have nothing to wear' this while looking at your closet? Calgarian Rachel Lootens did until she came across a new Calgary-designed fashion app, StyleYou.

“I was getting bored and felt like I was always putting the same outfits together,” said Lootens.

StyleYou ended her fashion rut.

“It allowed to me to have a more creative and bolder sense of style,” Lootens said of the app.

StyleYou is the closet from the movie Clueless and a celebrity stylist all wrapped into one. The app, started by Calgarians Jon Lam and Tom Lam, creates a virtual library of your clothes and gives you outfit recommendations from the city’s top stylists.

"[Our stylists] are experts at matching what’s already in your wardrobe. You don’t even have to shop and you’re getting completely new outfits,” said Lam.

“The visual aspect helped me pick up little fashion and styling tips on how to make certain patters, fabrics and styles work together and still look funky and fashionable,” Lootens said.

The app is currently only available on iPhones, but Lam said he’s working on bringing StyleYou to Androids and The Web.
