What good is it to design a fun outfit only to forget about the magical combination you created? Let Cloth help you remember the best outfits you put together. All you have to do is take a picture and upload it to the app. As you store your outfits, Cloth allows you to categorize them by occasion. So the next time you need an outfit for an evening on the town, turn to this app and browse the photos of ensembles you’ve deemed perfect to wear when going out at night.
Cloth doesn’t recommend outfits based on weather, but it does integrate weather information into its display. This makes it easy for you to consider the current conditions and temperature as you choose an outfit.
