Almost every woman can attest to dreading that most banal of morning rituals: finding an outfit to wear. So often we suffer through these moments alone. Until now. For those who dare, there are fashion websites where random people share their unbiased opinions of your outfits in a matter of minutes. Sites like Fashism and Go Try it On cater to everyday people who don’t have the luxury of a stylist, but want quick opinions about fashion, reports the New York Times. The process is as simple as uploading a photo of yourself wearing a particular outfit and asking other readers to rate your look. Feedback ranges from “I like it” and “Wear it” to “Change it” and “Go try it on.” Both sites are monitored by moderators who ensure that commenters keep it civil. “I really wanted to build a site that is helpful, not hurtful,” said Go Try it On’s founder and developer, Marissa Evans. New Yorker Ariella Adika, 28, so trusted other readers’ opinions that she uploaded photos of herself trying on wedding gowns for her upcoming nuptials. After finding a $3,000 gown she loved at a boutique in Pennsylvania, she uploaded picture of herself and asked fellow fashion lovers for their opinions. They didn’t love it. “You’re not wearing the dress, the dress is wearing you,” wrote one commenter. Adika listened to their opinion and kept shopping for another dress until she found one in New York City. So tell us, are you bold enough to let strangers rate your look?
