About a year ago I discovered this amazing site called Lyst.co.uk – an online shopping platform, which in a nutshell organises and cleverly keeps track of all your favourite designers and brands in one place, sending you alerts and stock updates by email as soon as the items go on sale. Isn’t that amazing? It’s fantastic for me as a blogger too, because I can notify you guys about a particular item or perhaps a full look you may be waiting on appearing back in stock or even better at a reduced price.
I’m so happy to have partnered up with Lyst.co.uk in this post to tell you more about the site’s amazing features and how you can make the most of your online shopping. It’s quick, easy to use and most importantly fun – no more hunting for bargains or specific items on various brand sites for hours. My favourite high street brands such as H&M, ZARA, Topshop and so many more are on Lyst, so you can see why I’m totally hooked.
Once you register with Lyst.co.uk (which is free and only takes 2 minutes), you are asked which brands you like, but because Lyst knows how difficult it is to think of all your favourite brands on the spot, it suggests similar brands to like, and depending on your answer and the items you choose for your “lysts”, the site works out your style and preferences and then fills your “News for You” section accordingly. It’s like your very own Fashion Search Engine, tailor-made just for you – I love it. I’ve been having so much fun with it lately, plus I got to rediscover brands I have completely forgotten about.
Whilst so many of my favourite bloggers are blogging about bikinis and sun hats on the other side of the globe where there’s eternal Sunshine, I’ve been mostly hunting for items and looks that are more suited for the British Spring/Summer – Lyst are also UK based. Check out the above Spring Lyst I created featuring my sought after H&M wide leg denim culottes you’ve been all asking about… All I did was type in the item’s description and added things to my Lyst from the “News for You” section – it literally takes seconds. But if you’re “lysting” on your computer (because there’s also an app), just grab and drag the item to the footer that displays your current lysts with an option to create a new one – easy peasy…
I’ve also created a lyst of all my favourite gladiator style sandals of the moment, some of which are designer and others high street as you can see. I intend to go back to that lyst in a few weeks and perhaps redefine it by adding more styles using the colours/price range/brand/sale filter, but I’m pretty certain that by then some of these will be reduced too – the perks of late British summers, eh?
Another thing I love about Lyst.co.uk is that the home page looks like a blog/magazine with the hottest season’s style inspirations, featuring some of the most stylish icons and most popular trends. Again, this is fantastic for keeping up with the season’s key pieces and styles and most importantly give you an idea of what things you could be adding to your own “lysts”. How about “11 ways to wear nautical” or some celebrity inspiration from Kendall and her culottes?
Your lysts are not just for you to keep to yourself – share them on your social media channels, with friends or with your family. Wedding outfit shopping perhaps? I’ve been creating lysts for my sister and mum, but then they started creating their own – it’s that simple and fun.
