Looklist is a curated street style inspiration engine and styling tool.
Looklist describes itself as an “inspiration engine” for fashion. What that means is that it searches the web’s best fashion blogs and sites for images of models or people on the street, allowing you to easily browse and sort through an infinite amount of styles. Looklist’s homepage displays an enormous, well-organized list of high quality images. Each picture contains a model with a unique sense of style. When you find something you like, you can click on it to visit the image’s original source, or share the photo across any of your social media channels. You can also quickly look through additional photos with a Google Images button.
The Looklist homepage is successful in its goal of providing inspiration for the fashion-minded, but its filter tools are what truly drive the site. There are filters for almost anything you can think of — from gender to season, from specific item of clothing to more general style. After selecting as many filters as you want, the list refreshes and a new set of images appears. You can keep refining this process until you find exactly what you’re looking for. These features make Looklist a more effective search tool than many of the other fashion sites on the web, as you can focus on the look and style that suits you best rather than browsing blogs or the sites of different brands. The site could be improved by more variety of options, but for what it offers now it’s definitely useful.
