It’s always a good idea to ask a friend for their opinion on your outfit, but now a new tool is being developed by researchers at the University of Toronto to assess how fashionable your Instagram photos are and suggest ways you can improve your photo and style.
The researchers took data from chictopia.com, a social media website where users share photos of their outfits and the community votes and comments on them.
Using the site's 144,169 posts, the team amassed highly detailed statistics for each user, their photo and their outfit.
These statistics revealed correlations and patterns between aspects of a photo and the interest it generated, which was then used to create the fashionability-predicting algorithm.
Once you’ve uploaded your photo, the algorithm will assess various aspects of the photo including the type of outfit and garments, the type of user, the setting/scenery of the photograph, and fashionability of the photograph.
It will then give detailed feedback including outfit recommendations, the most ideal locations to pose in, plus notes on how well it fits, the lighting and angle of the photo.
We cant wait to test this out when it becomes available!
