Amazon’s Echo Look took another step toward becoming a smarter styling tool. On Tuesday, the e-commerce giant released “How Do I Look?,” a new beta feature that lets its voice-equipped fashion camera offer on-the-fly styling advice based on what users are wearing. A trigger phrase — “Alexa, how do I look?”, “How can I look better?” or “Compliment my outfit” — gets the ball rolling, with the voice assistant snapping a full-body photo. About 10 seconds later, Alexa comes back with styling advice to enhance the outfit. There’s potential for confusion, since there’s also a “How Do I Look Today?” Alexa skill, though the skill is more about positive affirmation than fashion. It’s also similar to “Style Check,” but there are distinctions. Where “Style Check” helps people choose between different looks, “How Do I Look?” aims to enhance a single outfit. In both cases, the responses rely on a blend of insights from Amazon’s machine learning algorithms and massive complex of accumulated data, as well as advice from human fashion experts.
