What is StylePin?

StylePin is a collaboration of your fashion and style inspirations. StylePin is a tool that allows you to organize, collect, collaborate and share your fashion inspirations and personal style to the world wide web. You can also browse at other pinboards created by other members to discover new styles from people who share your interests.

What is a pin?

A pin is an image added to StylePin. A pin can be added to StylePin in four simple ways:

Upload directly from your computer. You can upload up to 6 photos at a time and add it to the respective pinboards of your making.

Grab photos from a website. Simply enter the link or URL of the website you wish to grab photos from. Select the photos you want to add and tag the photos to the respective pinboards of your making.

Grab photo from image URL. This is one of the easiest methods to bring one of your photos over to our site, since you won’t have to upload it again. i.e. Tumblr, Flickr, Photobucket, etc.

Install our 'StylePinn'd' bookmark button for an instant one-click pin. For more information on how to install your bookmark button, click here.

What is a PinBoard?

A board is a collection/folder of pins. A board can be created on any topic, such as Shoe Lust, Street Style, or Kate Moss. You can create as many boards as you want as long as the pins are style and fashion related.

How to sign up for StylePin

StylePin is currently invite-only. You can request an invite from us or you can be invited by someone who is already a part of StylePin.

What is following?

You can follow a StylePin user or even individual boards if you're only interested in seeing a user's pins to specific boards. You can unfollow boards and users at any time.

What is the difference between "liking" and "repinning"?

Liking a pin adds the photo to your profile's "Likes" section, meaning the image does not get added to one of your boards.

Repinning a photo allows you to place the photo onto one of your boards. You can edit the description of a repin. The source URL of the photo is transferred over automatically, no matter how many times it's repinned.

Pinning Photos

We want StylePin to be a quality site full of quality photos. So here are a few guidelines that we expect from our community:

Photos must be fashion and style related. We are StylePin afterall. Meaning that each photo MUST display a piece of clothing or accessory.

Each photo must also have at least one "tag" of what kind of clothing is shown. We want to build an efficient search database of all kinds of clothing that comes through StylePin so that each member can efficiently search for the items pinned.

Photos must be of high quality. 400 pixels width minimum. This means no cell phone cameras (yes, this includes Instagram photos).

No nudity whatsoever. Period.
