If you’re a man or a woman and you work in an office, do you ever make the mistake of wearing the same clothes two Wednesdays in a row? Yeah, been there. Done that.
Do you sometimes struggle to figure out what to wear even though your closet is filled, top, bottom, and sides. Yep. Been there, too. You know, what we Mac users need is some kind of dress assistant that knows what we’ve got and helps get it on.
The Digital Dress Assistant
Here we go. It was just a matter of time before someone came along with a Mac app that helps us create, mix, match, inventory, categorize, and just play around with clothing.
Hey, Mac guys and gals, I’m talking about you and your new Dress Assistant.
Frankly, between you and me, this is nuts. A Mac app that helps you with your wardrobe. Helps? Sure, it’s not going to zip you up or button you down.
But Dress Assistant will show you what you’ve got, and give you an idea of what it will look like matched with other clothing items. It’s like a digital Ken and Barbie fashion utility.
This Is Not Your Mother’s Wardrobe
Here’s the skinny. Dress Assistant is, well, kind of artsy, a little classy, a highly practical tool to manage your clothing—guy or gal—Mac or PC or iPhone. Search Amazon. Edit your wardrobe. Save outfits for specific events or seasons. Categorize by whatever you like—preference, color, closet, sexy or not.
To get started, you must be a guy or a girl. Click accordingly (click each image to view a larger, pop-up image).
Next up is to populate and categorize your wardrobe with images. Dress Assistant has an extensive built-in wardrobe (limited in the demo version) and a web site with more styles, fashions, and clothing. But you can drag and drop your own images and styles, or use Amazon.
In true Mac fashion, you can sort through your digital clothing rack using Cover Flow, then drag and drop and mix and match to whatever whim strikes your clothing fancy.
Dress Assistant takes some time to master. And some wardrobe. Or, at least, a wardrobe you’d like without actually spending money on the clothes. The drag and drop functions work well. Figuring out what to drag and where, or what to click and when, takes some effort.
If you’re a Mac user, you’ll love the slick styles of Dress Assistant, though you might be put off trying to wade through the arcane flow of what goes where.
Have no fear Windows PC users. Dress Assistant is for you, too. One license. Both Mac and PC. Shopping for clothes is a great experience in the digital age.
Dress Assistant brings the mix and match effort to your computer, and now to your iPhone. Yep, there’s an app for that. But, there’s also a web site where you can get your game on with more mix and match and drag and drop.
I have mixed emotions about Dress Assistant. It is fun to wade through so many clothing possibilities. It’s fun on the Mac, but more fun on the iPhone. It’s shopping without the guilt. Or the expense. Dress Assistant isn’t expensive at all, but you may need an assistant to assist you with the step-by-step to use it.
