You have to take a photo of the things you like whether it be on the internet, in a store or your closet. Google Lens will identify the clothing and provide you recommendations and information on additional clothing that you could purchase that would pair well.
It will give you style ideas by showing you pictures of models wearing clothes of your choice.
