I used to love heading to the mall just to browse the newest trends, but these days time is tighter. So more and more, I find myself turning to websites and apps for fashion tips so I can save time and money. Check out these six style apps—they’re truly the "best of the best" when it comes to finding hot deals on trendy accessories. These apps can help you find the accessories to complete any look, from shoes to bags, jewelry to scarves, hats to gloves and even whole outfits!
1. Keep Shopping
Keep Shopping has earned kudos from the likes of Forbes, Pop Sugar, Lucky magazine and the Huffington Post for up-ending the traditional e-commerce shopping cart experience with its unique OneCart shopping cart. With Keep Shopping, you shop from a central portal that brings together a curated showcase of the trendiest must-have items in fashion.
2. Top Hatter
Top Hatter is another top-rated online fashion app—with a twist. This curated online auction house is half e-commerce site, half social media-based meet up, with bidders and auctioneers chatting in real time while the bidding continues. You can watch items or enter bids in order to nab amazing fashion deals at super-low prices, and you can pay securely from in-app when you win.
Owned by Nordstrom, HauteLook has continued to enjoy its instant popularity, with more than a million downloads to date. If you love to shop at Nordstrom Rack, you’ll love HauteLook, which puts the outlet's deals online. InStyle even gave HauteLook their "best of the web" award—citing deals from 50-70% off as one of many reasons the app deserved this honor.
Snapette is an app "designed by women for women." The app is filled with user-snapped pics (hence the name), complete with links to where they found each item so you can duplicate your favorite looks (the app also curates celebrity looks with links to find cheaper versions of couture fashion). You can shop by price range, brand, size and other attributes to find what you need in just a click or two.
5. iShoes and iBags
You can shop, wishlist, post to social media, and even operate the app in offline mode to browse pairs and make a final selection. iShoes and iBags bring the global accessories world right to you in two free apps that are super easy to use! iShoes gives you access to 50,000+ shoes. iBags gives you access to 20,000+ bags.

6. eBay Fashion
Want access to millions of great bargains on accessories? The eBay Fashion app for iPhone gives it to you—for free! You can browse jewelry, accessories, shoes, bags and clothing, putting together whole outfits or just accessorizing those you already have. Best of all, the app notifies you of hot sales and it helps you match up photos of outfits you love with similar items available through eBay.
