Not sure about an outfit? Take a selfie!

By Sj.Cliff
Not sure about an outfit? Take a selfie!

The selfie is on the rise and what better thing to snap, than a new outfit? Now getting an opinion about those jeans could get a lot easier.

Sharing selfies is becoming quite a popular past time here in the UK with an increase of over 17,000 over the past year. It’s the best way to share what you’re wearing and get an opinion; fast.

Kim's always been a fan of the selfie.

So with the self-snapping trend on the rise, it’s only natural for clothing stores to jump on the bandwagon. Stores are having iPads fitted into changing rooms so shoppers can take a snap of what they’re thinking of buying and upload it to their social media account for opinions.

Leading the trend is Chanel kaiser Karl Lagerfeld. The flagship store on Regent Sreet, London, is kitted out with internet-connected iPads embedded into the changing room walls. As well as that there are even built in iPad Mini’s on display rails to search the full collection.

They may be the first for selfies but other stores are getting on the technology hype. Virtual and interactive mirrors have been seen in Burberry and Harvey Nic’s, Marks and Spencers are giving high-street customers virtual rails.

Our question is when will this epic idea spread to all of our high-street favourites?!
