Swappi is a new members-only app that allows you to trade clothes with others. The app was developed by students at Central Saint Martins in London. How it works (according to Trend Hunter): “After taking pictures of the clothes in your closet, you can browse snapshots of garments that have been uploaded by other users and agree to make a trade.”

Editor’s Note: We’re tweaking “The Week in Style,” which is why you haven’t seen it in a while.

Similar to what we do with an important project at work – put it out there, then course correct as necessary. 

Enjoy your week ahead!
