Digital fashions
 
Apparently this is now a thing. You upload a photograph of yourself and get back a digitally edited version wearing a fabulous outfit, which you can then post on Instagram for the envy of your friends. You have to pay for it, but it costs a lot less than buying the clothes for real. Also it costs the planet a lot less in CO2 emissions and water use; growing cotton requires a lot of water.

Perhaps in the future, silly young women will walk the streets in plain leggings and T-shirts but all wearing augmented reality glasses through which they will be able to view their own and everybody else's amazing digital clothes.

erm... Photoshop?
OK, I know it does more than that, but seriously: that's harmless fun.
What I find much worse is software that makes people look thinner, prettier, cuter, less flawed, adhere to "beauty norms" - whether it's done professionally or as a matter of course on Instagram et. al.
That really destroys people's lives, esp. when they're too young to understand how their psyches are being f*cked over.

Nightmare or dreamscape - you decide. I'm also told this may be 'over-stimulating' for some people, so you've been warned. If I remember right the Neveldene/Taylor movie Gamer also featured this (AR clothing) as a special effect in the 'game world' part (which if I remember right was supposedly based on The Sims games, although like all Neveldene/Taylor movies it rapidly escalates into violence).

I vaguely remember reading something about some department store having a 'fake jet plane' inside it for the sole purpose of taking photos for social media as well - I think the idea was to brag that you were 'on a trip' but from what I remember of the article people got pretty creative with it (like 'clown on the wing' kind of shots) - it was amusing but I can't say I see the original intended appeal ('bragging on social media').
