5. How will my outfit make the “Top outfits”?
A pretty and well combined outfit is of course essential for receiving many clicks and positive ratings.
The algorithm for determining the most popular outfits is down to three points:
Views / Number of views
Why? With every click, the community determines whether an outfit is worth a look or not.
Why? The community’s ratings determine how stylish an outfit is.
Up-to-dateness of the fashion items at the time of saving an outfit
Why? To make sure users don’t simply “re-combine” and save old outfits.
- Views / Number of views
When you are creating an outfit …
1. Give your outfit a creative and meaningful titlel
A funny, unusual and original outfit title attracts attention and entices people to take a closer look. However, the title should also suit your outfit or reflect the theme of your outfit. To find a good title, you could draw inspiration from the occasion for which you have designed your outfit, the colours and items of your outfit, or the trend or star that gave you the idea.
2. Write a good and detailed description for your outfit
Many users like to read a detailed description of an outfit or find out about the idea that inspired you. This way you can also explain your title, how to wear your outfit and for what occasion you designed it. A great advantage of a long description is that the outfit will come up more often in searches, which once again leads to more views.
3. Use several suitable keywords
If you use several suitable keywords to describe your outfit, other users will come across it more easily, increasing your chances on more outfit views and comments. Occasions (e.g. “job interview”), seasons (e.g. “summer”) or current trends (e.g. “boyfriend”, “pastel”) make especially good keywords.
4. Get actively involved in the community
Active involvement in the community will increase your visibility and will also have a positive effect on the number of people viewing your outfits. When you start writing detailed comments on other users’ outfits, you will get noticed and receive ratings, comments and new friends in return!

When your friends click on your outfit, the number of views on stylefruits.co.uk increases automatically, letting your outfit climb up the overall ranking.
6. Show your outfits to your followers on Twitter

- The outfit needs to be well laid out and inherently consistent
- The title must not be offensive etc.
