“Let’s say you’re looking for a new outfit to wear to a wedding. If you search for “cocktail attire”, you could see an image of a popular fashion blogger wearing a black cocktail dress, heels and sunglasses. You can shop those exact (or visually similar) products featured in the image by tapping through and exploring the relevant products shown in the form of Shopping ads,” exemplifies Melissa Hsieh Nikolic, Senior Product Manager at Google Shopping.

Basically, we get to save time in searching for clothing because we won’t have to click on countless website to scan their products. Thanks to the new feature, users can search for that particular design by simply clicking the search results. This way we gain access to the most relevant products. These items appear as shopping ads.

As you would expect, it’s a great tool for advertisers to showcase their products. Retailers will pay on a CPC basis. However, it’s not just the sellers that will experience benefits. People looking for a particular outfit will find Shop the Look a pretty useful tool for their needs.

The featured images will only come from Google’s trusted partners. This means brands, retailers, bloggers, and publishers. Important names include Polyvore, Curalate, and LIKEtoKNOW.it.

At the moment, Google is testing the new implementation in the United States on mobile devices. No information regarding availability has been provided yet.
