The Punchline

Polyvore.com allows web surfers to express their style

Katharine Crnko Jan 31, 2011

The e-shoppers eternal dilemma: how do you save and organize fashion styles and looks that you love on the Internet? Polyvore.com is a web community of fashionistas that allows you to track fashion trends around the world. You can “clip” your favorite items, style them into a collage, and share your collage with your friends.

Or as Lucky magazine says, “Polyvore.com took the social networking phenomenon, added fashion voyeurism and a dash of let’s-pretend fantasy, and created a sensation.”

Marketplace reporter Adriene Hill used Polyvore to create her own collage featuring an outfit suitable for a public radio host.
