Planning your fall wardrobe just got a whole lot easier thanks to Neiman Marcus and InStyle. The fashionable retailer and style magazine have teamed up to bring customers and prospective customers some of this fall’s hottest trends in a mix and match web tool called “Instant Style” in the v.i.t. section of Neiman’s website.
You can even customize the outfits piece by piece, view details including the designer and price, click through for more information, buy the entire outfit or just the pieces you want. The only trick is coming up with the $5k-$8k per outfit. ; )
Wouldn’t online shopping be better if every online retailer offered a similar service? What if you could even upload your own photo (and possibly body type info.) to get an idea of how the outfit would look on you?
For those of us who only wish we could afford shopping at Neiman Marcus, here’s a suggestion: Play around with the mix and match tool, see what pieces you already have in your wardrobe and which ones you’ll need to get the look you want. Then go out and find similar pieces elsewhere. (Did I hear someone say H&M or Zara?)
Have you tried Instant Style and if so, what did you think? What else could fashion retailers do to improve their websites? What other stores are doing it right? Leave a comment.
(Thanks for Mish for the heads-up.)
