The LTK app is a shopping discovery app that allows you to shop your favorite looks you see on social media and rewardstyle approved blogs by taking screenshots of Like To Know It enabled images.
How many outfits have you seen on Instagram and wanted but have no idea where it’s from? Shop LTK is a social shopping service that lets rewardstyle influencers on blogs and social platforms like Instagram share what they’re wearing and gives direct links to their outfits, makeup and decor.

How do you know if a photo is LTK enabled on Instagram?
If a blogger or influencer has uploaded a photo to the LTK app (previously LIKEtoKNOW.it), enabled it and tagged the clothes and products etc, you can tell either from their caption or by looking for the logo in the bottom right corner. The logo will be a white or black circular logo. Not all influencers choose to use the logo so you have to check the caption for a hyperlink.
If a photo is enabled and the blogger uses the LTK LIKEtoKNOWit logo it looks like this. See the logo at the bottom right, that can be either white or black.
