The adage of look-but-don’t-touch is going out of fashion as Instagram brings shopping fashionably in-app.
Peruse, ponder, purchase
Instagram users will soon notice that if a post happens to contain an adorable shopping bag icon, you can tap for details and even buy the item being pictured.
Louis Vuitton, Aritzia, and Adidas are just a few of the big name brands offering their wares worldwide through Stories.
According to Instagram’s official release, “Instagram isn’t just a place for inspiration, it’s also a place of action, and we know that inspiration can come from anywhere,” just like Stories.
If you post it, they will shop
