Top 100 fashion blogs every stylish girl needs to follow
In The Frow
In the Frow is the blog of Victoria Magrath who is otherwise known as Dr Frow.
Why Dr? Because she has a PhD in fashion, which means she’s a bit of authority when it comes to clothes. If she recommends something, you’d be crazy not to listen to her advice.
Victoria is also a really hard working blogger who excels as both as fashion insider and content creator. She’s an expert on the subject and invites you to take advantage of her extensive knowledge via her blog.
Victoria’s other achievements that bulk up her resume and lend her lots of credibility include being the face of Ted Baker, appearing in a recent L’Oreal commercial – and scooping the Best Fashion Blog award at the Vuelio Blog Awards 2017.

Flare is a Canadian magazine that’s now got an online blog. The women’s magazine itself has been around for 30 years, and its topics typically cover entertainment, health, beauty – and fashion.
Flare has a reach of some 1.8 million women per month. It doesn’t matter if you’re not Canadian, you can still check out their awesome content.
And they post a LOT – around 34 times a week.

Beauty and Tips is a website largely aimed at men – but we do stuff for men, too. And guys, you’re not going to be left out in this article. Moreover, women who are shopping for their male partners will find blogs like MenswearStyle super useful.
Craig Landale started this blog back in 2012. Since then, he’s won a few awards, including winning the Best British Blog at last years Vuelio Blog Awards and the Best Men’s Lifestyle Blog in the same year.
Craig and his MenswearStyle blog has lots of credibility, then, and what’s more is that he’s also an award-winning, perfectly groomed journalist who knows exactly what’s talking about.
Menswear Style isn’t just Craig, though; it’s actually home to a team of writers who are just as passionate about what they do as Craig is. They cover lifestyle, personal grooming, style and – of course – fashion.
The blog has a pretty huge audience already and pumps out lots of content. If you want to find out what it’s all about you can check the website out here: https://www.menswearstyle.co.uk/
Jean is the brains behind Extra Petite, a fashion and overall lifestyle blog that’s full of shopping info and cool styling ideas.
Jean’s main aim with the blog is to make women of any size or height feel confident with what they are wearing. She wants us all to look uber stylish, while her own style is what we’d call “office friendly”. That said, she’s always bursting with colour and always on trend.

Fashion Foie Gras
Fashion Foie Gras seems like an odd name for a blog at first, but it also rolls off the tongue with a certain elegance. It’s a fashion blog that was created by Emily Johnston in 2009. Her first aim was to write a blog that updated women on all things fashion news related.
As time passed, however, Emily moved it away from news and into the realms of a personal diary of sorts that tracks her own fashion choices. She also talks about her diet and her travel experiences, and as such it’s evolved into a lifestyle blog.
Fashion Foie Gras has been a mainstay in the fashion blog rankings over the years and this is thanks to Emily’s passion and delightful writing style that has won her an army of fan. She discusses all the latest trends and styles, as well as her own fashion finds that she thinks her fans will enjoy.
Emily is a great writer too, and has contributed to mainstream publications. She has also worked with the likes of Mercedes-Benz and Ralph Lauren.
You can find her blog here: https://www.fashionfoiegras.com/
Raindrops of Sapphire
Raindrops of Sapphire is a beautiful name for a blog and we simply had to check it out.
The brains behind this blog is Lorni Burford, a self-confessed denim addict who’s new well and truly a denim expert. She uses the blog to share her own style with her readers while introducing them to the latest releases by high end brands.
Lorni actually works on two blogs and uses them both to cover denim. She’s worked with her fair share of denim brands over the years, and if you want to seek advice from someone on denim, it HAS to be Lorni.
She posts fresh content often, and her blog posts are always accompanied by stunning photographs, including gorgeous countryside shots that have made the fashion world sit up and take notice.
Lorna has also worked with the likes of TopShop, Look Magazine and Asos over the years and her blog just keeps on climbing the rankings.

The Chriselle Factor
The Chriselle Factor blog has one very simple mission: To make the world beautiful, one girl at a time.
It’s the brainchild of Chriselle Lim, a digital influencer and stylist who’s making huge waves in the fashion industry. She wants to educate, inspire and encourage women from all around the world to follow their own style dreams.
She shares a wealth of fashion hacks, beauty secrets and runway trends.
You can check her blog out here: http://thechrisellefactor.com/
Ape to Gentleman
With a rather self-explanatory name for a blog, Ape to Gentleman does exactly what you’d expect it to. As the site itself says, “A true gentleman should always be looking to enrich himself further through experience, self-improvement and the enjoyment of the finer things in life.”
Chris Beastall is the brains behind the blog. It was based on traditional mens magazines, but Chris wanted to create a more evolved version that provides more compelling content on mens fashion, as well as personal grooming and overall lifestyle.
The aim of the blog is to give power to the modern man and bring out his inner gentleman. It’s in there in all men, but sometimes it needs a blog like Ape to Gentleman to bring it out.
Ladies, if you’ve got a man who you wish was more of a gentleman, you know what to do – send him over to this blog here: https://www.apetogentleman.com/
Disney Roller Girl
Disney Roller Girl might sound like a blog that’s aimed at teens, but nothing could be further from the truth. Instead, it’s a happy, colourful blog that’s owned and ran by Navaz Batliwalla.
Navaz was one of the first prominent fashion bloggers when she first launched Disney Roller Girl wayyyyy back in 2006. Back then, there weren’t all that many fashion blogs in existence, which is what helped Navaz’s to stand out.
At the time, she was working as a fashion director and – as British gal – she was inspired by how honest and direct American bloggers were. So she decided to launch her own blog that was direct, honest and full of her sharp opinions on the world of fashion.
Since then, Disney Roller Girl has gone from strength to strength and is now one of the top ranked fashion blogs in the world.
You can peruse the blog yourself here: http://www.disneyrollergirl.net/
Eva Chen is one of the most popular and successful Instagram fashion bloggers of all time.
She was once a magazine editor and now works as Instagram’s head of fashion partnerships. So the question is, why wouldn’t you trust her when it comes to fashion tips and advice?
We love the way Eva is so accessible on social media. As well as turning to her for the latest news, fashionista’s everywhere who want to start blogging should see her as a major inspiration.
Each week, she shares overviews of what’s happened in fashion over the last seven days and each day she tells us what handbag, shoes and – um – fruit she’s been loving. We love Eva!
You can find her here: https://www.instagram.com/evachen212/
Meanwhile, here’s what she had to say about using Instagram to share things with the world:
“I was going to be a doctor and for me it’s the inclusiveness of Instagram that is so appealing – that sense that the velvet ropes are coming down. You could be an 18-year-old girl in Tokyo wondering how you could ever break into fashion or beauty, so you follow your favourite designer or editor, see what their day comprises, where they go, who they meet, how they do it…If I were setting up my own label today, I would definitely do it through Instagram.”
What Olivia Did
What Olivia Did is a remarkable blog for the fact that it was created by Olivia Purvis when she was still in school.
That was back in 2010. Now, Olivia’s fashion blog is followed by hundreds of thousands of people and she’s firmly established herself as a major influencer across social media.
What Olivia Did wouldn’t even exist had Olivia’s school blocked Blogger. Once she found that it hadn’t, Olivia set about dedicating her blog to the thing she loved the most in the world – fashion.
Her knowledge and her blog has gone from strength to strength. These days, Olivia has extended her blog to include recipes and beauty tips to go along with her musings on fashion. Her blog also includes reviews and interviews with the women who matter to her.
You can check out her blog here: http://www.whatoliviadid.com/
Like Olivia, the creator of WishWishWish was very young when she first created her blog – just seventeen in fact.
Back then, WishWishWish was a blog dedicated to her own personal style and quirky experimentations as she found her way in the heady world of fashion. She would share the outfits she wore and talk about the things that inspired her.
Today, WishWishWish has evolved into an amazing lifestyle and fashion blog that’s crammed with content centred on all things stylish and trendy. The content is detailed, the photography is lush and you can check it all out here: http://wishwishwish.net/
Style Bubble has been going strong since 2006. In the intervening years, creator Susanna Bubble has established herself as a major player in fashion circles; she’s very much an icon and influencer who people look up to.
Because it’s been around since 2006, Style Bubble can claim to be one of the very first blogs of its type. Today it’s still one of the most popular fashion blogs that has a readership well into the hundreds of thousands.
Susanna can often be seen mingling at top fashion events and she continues to use her blog to share her edgy personal style with her readers. You’ll also find that Susanna is an articulate and very intelligent writer not afraid to voice her opinions.
You can check out her blog here: http://www.stylebubble.co.uk/
We’re not going to lie: Each time we check out Aimee Song’s Instagram, we want to BE her.
Or we at least want to go and live with her in California.
Even if we could swap shoes with her for just ONE day that would be enough!
Her Instagram is amazing, her life is amazing, she’s amazing – and she’s kind enough to use social media to invite us into her world and share fashion advice with us all. We think that’s just super.
As well as a fashion blogger, Aimee also works as an interior designer. Clearly, she has an eye for a good thing.
Not too sure she knows what she’s talking about? She’s followed be 3.2 million people, so she must be doing something right.
You can check her out on Instagram here: https://www.instagram.com/songofstyle/
Here’s a quote: “Somebody was asking ‘How do you stay confident?’ and I actually really faked it. I faked it all the time — not all the time, but I fake it a lot of time. I don’t feel confident and I don’t feel happy at all. I feel so sad inside and sometimes I feel so sad and so broke inside, especially lately.”
Leandra Medine is one of our fav fashion bloggers because she’s just so damn funny – and that can be a rare thing in fashion circles.
She brings lots of humour to her content, which makes her a breath of fresh air in what can otherwise be an industry that takes itself just a tad too seriously at times.
Leandra has had the chance to work with some major brands and is now a permanent and highly respected figure on the fashion scene.
Just don’t expect her to take this too seriously.
You can check her out here: https://www.instagram.com/leandramedine/?hl=en
Here’s a quote: “Diane von Furstenberg actually gave me a very good piece of advice. She said, ‘When you doubt your power, you give power to your doubt,’ so that’s something I’m going with. I think that’s a really good answer: Just don’t listen to the doubts. Your doubts are generated by fear, and fear is a series of distorted thoughts.”
Amber is what we like to call a “blogger’s blogger” – and she’s a girl that people love, and respect when it comes to fashion. She’s one of the best content creators there is, and Forever Amber is one of the best fashion blogs on the planet at the moment.
That said, she isn’t all about the fashion. Amber also uses her blog to teach others how to blog (she’s such a doll), as well as how to build their audiences.
She also shares stories from her personal life. For example, Amber recently gave birth to a boy, Max, and as well as the birth itself, Amber talked about her pregnancy.
If you want a glimpse into how another woman copes with life, as well as some expert fashion tips from a well-dressed gal, you can check Amber’s blog out here: http://www.foreveramber.co.uk/
Closet Confessional is a sustainable fashion blog that was created by Dana Frost. Dana uses fashion to express herself. There’s not much in this world that brings as much joy and love to her life than fashion, and she uses her blog to share her best vintage finds with the world.
If you like vintage clothes and want to do your bit for the environment, Dana’s blog is well worth a look. You can check it out here: http://www.closet-confessional.com/
Here’s a quote:
“Supporting slow fashion is about more than positively impacting the environment. It’s about making a choice to support the people behind the clothes, to choose quality over quantity, to choose longevity over trends. As a personal stylist, I regularly witness our society’s obsession with consumption and the constant need for more. This ultimately just leads to more waste. Rather than supporting this narrative and the pressure to keep up with the never ending and ever changing trends, I decided to slow down and change my habits. Slow fashion is about more than clothes. It’s about the story behind your clothes.”
Where Candice differs from many other of the fashion bloggers on this list is that she’s also a model, and therefore has first hand experience of what happens behind the scenes on shoots and runways.
And if that wasn’t enough, she’s also a fashion photographer. She’s got the lot!
Need even more convincing that she’s the blogger for you? Candice has worked with the likes of Louis Vuitton and Jimmy Choo and has her own collection called Candidate by Candice Lake.
Her resume, then, is just stunning and she’s always out and about during fashion weeks.
You can catch up with her here: https://www.instagram.com/candicelake/
Here’s a quote where she discusses her favourite place to shoot:
“I love all four cities for different reasons. Everyone is still so fresh in NY, so everyone pulls out the bold colours for the week. London is where I shoot all my favourite girls – all the cool experimental girls are in London. I love how a girl in Sloane Street is so vastly different to a girl in Brick Lane. Paris has the most exquisite dreamy light and everyone is impossibly chic!”
Sustainability In Style
Sustainability in Style was founded by Katie Roberts, an environmental scientist who decided to put what she was studying into practice.
She launched her blog in 2011, and at first her blog was dedicated to clothing swap events. Over time, she began to expand her topics and now uses her blog to share her experiences, knowledge and tips and tricks. You can check her blog out here: http://sustainabilityinstyle.com/
Here’s a quote:
“Slow fashion has provided me with a platform to discuss sustainability related topics and practice the delivery of sustainability education techniques that I have learned through my masters studies. Fashion is an easily accessible and understandable consumer good for shoppers to start making sustainable and ethical purchasing decisions. It is also an area where people (usually) put a little thought into their purchases which means it’s a great place to provide tools and knowledge for consumers to find items that fit their values.”
Gal Meets Glam
Gal Meets Glam is a great name for an awesome fashion blog. It’s maintained by Julia Engel, a fashion blogger who started blogging in 2011. Back then, she was still in college and it was hardly a full time thing.
However, the blog really took off and by 2013 she was working on it full time.
Her social media following now touches a million. If you’re interested to see what a girl who travels a lot blogs about when it comes to fashion, you can check her blog out here: http://galmeetsglam.com/
Eco Boost was founded by TV present Kate Arnell. In the course of her regular daily activities, she scouts around for sustainable fashion findings, before sharing the best ones on her blog.
That said, Kate doesn’t just showcase the items that look amazing. She makes a point that it’s important to understand why a person wants to wear sustainable clothes, and what higher good it serves our environment.
Here’s a quote on what sustainable fashion means to Kate:
“I think slow fashion is also about understanding the whole story of each garment and appreciating the joy each carefully chosen piece brings. Knowing that the people who made my clothes were treated fairly and with respect as well as paid well for their work without being exposed to harmful chemicals brings a sense of empowerment to each garment. It’s time we owned our clothes with pride, instead of our clothes owning us with guilt and insecurity.”

We think Saiint is a pretty cool name for a fashion blog, even if it could take people a while to find it on Google. Once you’ve visited this site, you’ll want to bookmark it straight away so that you don’t lose it.
Why? Because it’s totes amazing.
It’s ran by Katie and Diana, sisters who have a thing for sustainable clothing. On their blog, they feature ethical brands who are doing their bit for fashion and the environment.
Oh, and the reason the blog is called Saiint? It’s because they’re the Saiint sisters. D’uh!
You can check their blog out here: http://saiint.co.uk/
And here’s a quote:
“We are big fans of slow fashion because we strongly believe in taking those around you with you on your success journey. Without awareness of the people, processes and impact your clothes have, how can you truly say you respect those who contribute to your vanity. Every person (and indeed the planet we live on) deserves to be treated equally without letting greed cloud your vision of what success really means. We believe everybodys live scan be enriched along the way to a more ethical fashion future”
Kasi is the founder of The Peahen, a fashion blog dedicated mostly to ethical clothing and brands.
Katie was what she calls a “fast fashion burnout,” which essentially means she bought stuff first and then thought about the style – as well as the ethics behind her purposes.
Once she realised that the brands she was supporting weren’t ethical enough for her, she set about changing her style and her purchases.
Her blog is a guide to everything you need to know about ethical fashion, from the top brands to the top designers.
Don’t worry, it isn’t entirely devoted to ethical brands – you will also find some nonethical brands on here, too.
Here’s her site: http://thepeahen.com/
And here’s a quote.
“The more I learn about sustainability and the natural balance of ecosystems – the more I’m convinced that nothing we do will really ever ‘benefit’ the planet. Our sheer existence puts more demand on the earth than it can naturally provide. The reason slow fashion resonates with me is because it’s one step we can take to alleviate some demand on the earth and stave off harmful impacts. We can’t go wrong with a slower approach because 1. it reduces resources, and 2. it gives us more time to do research that might make way for new, zero-waste technologies (think: closed loop manufacturing). Slow fashion can lead to better conditions for workers because business practices come under more scrutiny. While this doesn’t have a direct scientific correlation to the planet, I think when humans are treated fair they will channel their sense of happiness into how they treat the earth – better. I advocate for Slow Fashion through my writing on The Peahen and call on both brands and consumers to help change the industry. My call to action is #SlowDownMyClothes”
Leotie Lovely is a blog maintained by none other than fashionista … Leotie Lovely! Although she admits herself that she isn’t really a fashion designer, Leotie is a curator – one whose opinions are beautifully expressed and highly respected. `
She loves to create content, and if you like the sound of ethical fashion you can check her blog out here: http://leotielovely.blogspot.dk/
Here’s a quote from Miss Lovely herself:
“What attracts me to slow fashion, in addition to the fact that it is better for the planet and her inhabitants, is that brands who genuinely take the meaningful steps of cradle-to-cradle creation, develop garments which are privy to a kind of love most clothing will never know. If you’re familiar with Dr. Masaru Emoto’s water molecules experiment you might agree this could produce results you could have never imagined. The threads which unite the slow fashion community are symbolic of conscious culture as a whole; it goes beyond fashion, it’s a lifestyle, it’s a revolution, it’s about genuinely trying to be the change you wish to see in the world. If “you are what you wear”, as the mainstream fashion industry so often threatens, I can’t consciously choose to support anything else.”
The Craft Sessions
The name is a bit of a giveaway on this one, and the Craft Sessions is – you guessed it – a blog that brings together the best of the art and crafts and fashion worlds.
There is a bit of a twist – the focus is on the ethical side of things.
The Craft Sessions has a real community vibe to it, with the blog organising retreat weekends every now and then. People can get together and be creative in near Melbourne, Australia.
If you can’t attend, you can share your tips and fashion projects on the blog anyway.
You can check out The Craft Sessions here: http://thecraftsessions.com/
Here’s a quote:
“Choosing Slow Fashion means simply: to take responsibility for the choices we make around our consumption of clothing, while participating in ongoing personal education about the complexities of our choices, and while taking into account our personal life circumstances thereby making the most ethical choice we can at any given time.”
The Sustainable Edit
The Sustainable Edit was founded by Jen Brownlie. At first, she was just another fashion blogger. As the years past, she realised that she wasn’t comfortable with her fashion choices anymore. Not because they weren’t her style, but because they didn’t align with her ethics.
Jen’s blog focuses on two things: Ethical fashion and capsule wardrobes. What does capsule wardrobes mean? It means that you don’t have to go crazy and buy an insane amount of clothes. You can have a small wardrobe and still look amazing every day.
You can find The Sustainable Edit here: http://www.tartanbrunette.co.uk/
Here’s a quote from Jen:
“Embracing slow fashion and changing the way I shop has lifted a weight off my shoulders. Before I publicly ended my relationship with fast fashion I felt so much pressure to always have a new outfit and worried about what I was wearing. Now I’m taking the time to think through all my purchases and focusing on buying better quality. This means I always have something to wear and don’t feel the pressure to buy something new for an event. Another plus is it’s saving me money, yes the clothes are more expensive to purchase but I’m buying so much less in the long run.”
Another blog dedicated to sustainable clothing, Sustainable Chic is also dedicated to chic clothing – as its name suggests!
The blog is maintained by Natalie, who launched it back in 2014. She was a fashion major who was not only keen on fashion, but who had studied it and therefore was knowledgeable about the whole industry.
As such, not only is she a voice worth listening to, but – having access to what really goes on in this industry – Natalie discovered that it’s at times far from ethical. Deciding she wanted to raise awareness of ethical brands, she launched her blog.
Sustainably Chic is fashion oriented, and there’s lots of style advice on here. But Natalie also wants to educate people to help them make better, more ethical choices.
You can find the website here: http://www.sustainably-chic.com/
Here’s a quote:
“Besides putting in the effort to reduce our carbon print, slow fashion truly enables us to experience and appreciate the work which goes into creating the garments. Fashion shouldn’t be easy or disposable. Why fall in love with a dress you can only wear a few times? My clothes.. I’ll have them for life, and I’ll know exactly who made them.”
Fishnets and Rainbows
Fishnets and Rainbows is a fashion blog ran by 23 year old Rita Saraqi, who hails from and lives in Kosovo.
Rita is still super young but she’s at the prime age to be writing about fashion in the Instagram era. She started her blog when she was 20, which is young if you’re a Balkan blogger.
Rita’s approach is fun and easygoing, and as well as collaborating with local brands, she’s also found herself collaborating with international brands, too, such as Benetton and Mango.
As much as it’s about style, Fishnets and Rainbows is about something else, too. As Rita explains: “As a blogger, I transmit a message — I tell people about Kosovo and what we are into. Most people know where Kosovo is; they know about our history, but they think it’s not safe here. It’s good for these people to get to know me — I can tell them how friendly it is. I can change their perceptions.”

Double Exposure is by FAR one of the best fashion blogs on the Internet, which is all the more remarkable when you consider that its creator and contributor is just 21 years old.
Yup, Atlanta born and bred Reese Blutstein is a must-read. She’s into vintage, minimalist pieces – and she loves to look quirky.
“I believe style has to do with the creativity you put into the outfits you wear with the things you already have,” she says.
Reese is still in college and operates on a budget. She uses her blog to share fashion tips and tricks with anyone else who is also on a budget, showing us that you can look great as long as you’ve got an eye for creativity and don’t mind experimenting a little.
Despite working on a budget, despite being so young and despite still being in college, Reese has already partnered up with the likes of Need Supply, Gucci and Paco Rabanne.
You can check out her blog here: http://www.double3xposure.com/
Harper and Harley
Harper and Harley is a fashion blog for fans of minimalism – particularly those who tend to stick to greys, blacks and whites.
It’s ran by Australian style super star Sara Donaldson, a girl who’s resume already includes the likes of Harper’s Bazaar, Nike, Swarovski, and Gucci. Wow, huh?
You might also recognise Sara if you’ve seen the reality TV show Fashion Bloggers.
Harper and Harley is jam packed with content, and it might take you some time to work through their archives. But once you have, pop over to The undone, another of Sara’s projects. It’s a curated online e-boutique that she runs with fellow founder Georgia Martin.
Sara is one of the biggest voices in modern fashion, and an expert well worth listening to. She’s amassed over 800,000 followers over the years after first launching her blog while she was still at university. “I was an early adopter. It’s also about having consistent content and making sure that content is really premium. You can’t just throw up a bunch of stuff in the air and hope that does well. You have to make sure it’s all done professionally … You have to give your readers advice or give them something that’s a bit special.”

What My Boyfriend Wore
Ladies, are you tired of your boyfriend wearing rubbish clothes? Do you wish he dressed better and was more on-trend?
Then you NEED What My Boyfriend Wore.
The original blog was started by Sergio Ines’ ex girlfriend. Sergio was a blogger himself, and his lady had clearly had enough with his questionable style. She decided that not only was she going to dress him herself, but that she was also going to show other ladies how they should be dressing their men, too.
Although it isn’t the exact same blog as it used to be (Sergio and his woman split up and Sergio now maintains the blog himself), What My Boyfriend Wore is still an awesome menswear blog that’s aimed at gentleman who want to be a bit more dapper. Here’s what Sergio says about his blog:
“What My Boyfriend Wore is a fashion diary with a difference. My girlfriend at the time loved documenting my outfits and started putting them up on Instagram, it became so popular that I started this blog. Now, it’s all about fashion for normal men. Here you will find the where, what and how of mens style as well as the fun finds of living a gentleman’s life on the tip of Africa!”
You can check out the full blog here: What My Boyfriend Wore
You probably haven’t heard of Lucy Williams. We hadn’t heard of her until we started to compile this list of bloggers. But we reckon she’s a journalist turned fashion blogger who will pretty soon be hot on everyone’s lips.
She’s not even be around that long but already she’s worked with Maje and J.Crew, and she’s also provided her own collection of jewellery for Missoma.
Careful, though – she travels to exotic places a LOT, so if you get jealous easily, you might want to give her blog a miss!
If not, you can check her out here: https://www.instagram.com/lucywilliams02/
Pari Ehsan is a bit different to the other bloggers on this list in that, as well as blogging about fashion, she also blogs about architecture and art.
Her feed is super unique – she posts lots of photos and content centred around the latest catwalk looks, but she also posts lots of stuff about art galleries from all over the world.
Pari has worked with both Dior and Chanel.
You can check her out here: https://www.instagram.com/paridust/
Here’s a quote on why she mixes art with fashion on her blog:
“Perhaps just coming from that point of obsession, creating relationships between art and fashion is infinitely interesting to me. No pairing is the same, there is an endless amount of material to draw from, discover and therefore create. I also feel as if I’m sharing value, an artist that I admire, a feeling that may resonate with the collective. It’s not strategic, it’s just me doing what feels innate.”
A fashion blog aimed at larger women, Gabi Fresh is the brainchild of the self-professed queen of the fatkini, Gabi Gregg.
Gabi’s blog was a massive hit right from the start. In fact, it was so popular that it inspired a full-on international movement, where plus-size women felt empowered to wear their bikinis with confidence.
Gabi is based in California, where it’s sunny a lot, and where she wants to be able to wear her bikinis without feeling inferior. A fiery, confident woman, she uses her blog to inspire larger women everywhere to just do their thing without worrying what other people are thinking about them.
Gabi Fresh has won a number of awards over the years, while Gabi herself designs swimwear for SwimSuitsForAll that literally sell out each year. Why? Because they’re amazing!
Gabi also has her own clothing line – Premme – which she launched last year.
Of her role in changing the plus-size industry, Gabi had this to say:
“We still have a long way to go, but I always remind people that we’ve gone a long way. When I started blogging, it was so different; there were so few resources and there was nowhere to go. Now, it’s just an entirely different world; there are thousands of plus-size bloggers.
“When it comes to social media, you can click on a hashtag and see women who are happy and confident and wearing crop tops and bikinis and stylish clothing — all the things that I wanted to see growing up that I had nowhere to find. I can’t say for sure what my influence has been, but I know that I was one of the first people doing it, and I feel really proud of that.
“I helped spread the message. Before I did my bikini collection, there were very, very few plus size brands making bikinis, and after mine went viral and sold out, now every plus-size brand makes bikinis. There’s definitely been some impact.”

The Blonde Salad
The Blonde Salad is a fashion blog ran by Italian blogger Chiara Ferragni. Chiara was born and raised in Italy but now lives in Los Angeles. She’s one of the biggest fashion bloggers on the planet and has over 10 MILLION followers on Instagram.
Chiara is just as popular abroad as she is in America, and she appeared as an expert on the panel that decide the 2015 LVMH Prize.
She’s also been on the cover of Lucky Magazine and is a fashionista well worth listening to.

London-based stylist and tomboy India Rose is still a bit of a fresh flower in the fashion influencer arena but she’s hot stuff. She’s already worked on projects for the likes of Nike and Prada, and she’s making a pretty huge name for herself.
Her aesthetics is best described as “clean minimal” and it stands out among everyone else. We love her urban take on street wear, and India also doesn’t mean throwing a few menswear items into her wardrobe, too.
If you feel like experimenting along with India, you can check her blog out here: https://www.instagram.com/indiaroseco/
Here’s what she had to say about style:
“Style is a combination of instinct and taste. It’s something that encompasses who you are as a person, what you do, what you care about, what inspires you. It’s a way to express all of those things without saying a word. My personal style is based around comfort. I work from home, but I’m always on the move. I also work between fashion and music, so my style has to encompass all of that. Usually labelled a tomboy, but I do love a silk slip dress or block heeled mule on the odd occasion.”
Fashion Toast is Rumi Neely’s baby. She launched it way back in 2006, which means that it’s now more than a decade old. She posts a LOT of photos to go along with her blogs, and her models are always gorgeous and cooly posed.
As one of the first fashion bloggers on the block, Rumi has influenced a lot of newcomers. She’s collaborated with a number of brands over the years too, and now has her own one of tees, tap pants and slip dresses called Are You Am I.
If you want to copy her style and make it yours (you’ll look great), you can check her blog out here: http://fashiontoast.com/
Rumi’s style is on point. If you’re a guy and would love to know what her best and hippest guy friends are wearing, you should check out BryanBoy, a fashion blog ran by Rumi’s best friend, Bryan Grey Yambao.
Bryan is based in NYC but hails from the Philippines. He has a very unique, very sharp take o fashion that won’t be to everyones tastes. But if you’re a guy who wants to look dapper while standing out from the crowd, his blog is well worth checking out.
He’s stood the test of time, too. Now 32, Bryan is still going while many bloggers from his and Rumi’s era have disappeared. Key to his longevity is his adaptability. Bryan spots trends, stays on top of them and shares them with you.
He’s appeared numerous times on America’s Next Top Model, too. That’s serious cred right there.

When someone is called “Australia’s most exciting young voice in the fashion industry” by the Business of Fashion, you know it’s a voice worth listening to.
In this particular instance, that voice is Margaret Zhang, a young Australian blogger whose blog covers fashion and food.
She also takes self portraits (not selfies, these are way too arty) and has so far collaborated with the likes of Swarovski and Louis Vuitton.
You can find her here: https://www.instagram.com/margaret__zhang/
Here’s a quote:
“Anybody’s evolution from age 16 to 22 is going to be pretty significant. When I was younger, I was a bit more girlie, now I definitely experiment more with menswear and oversized garments. I never wear dresses or skirts on their own, they’re always layered over pants or high boots. I always work from the outside in – start with hero outerwear, and layer accordingly. I would describe my style as man-tailored with a feminine twist.”
Gary Pepper Girl
The oddest name for a fashion blog HAS to go to Gary Pepper Girl. It was created by Australia-based Warne, who appeared on the cover of Lucky magazine in February 2015.
The site was originally launched as an eCommerce site for all things vintage way back in 2009. At the time, Warne would model the clothes in a bid to market the site, and she also started blogging to get even more exposure.
By 2011, the site had really taken off and was one of Australia’s biggest online retailers.
In 2012, Warne realised that her blog had become even more popular than her eCommerce store. She decided to shut down the latter and has since focused her energies on shaping one of the world’s best fashion blogs.

Chic on the Cheap
Wanna look chic?
Don’t have much money?
Then you NEED Chic on the Cheap, a fashion blog aimed at livening up the wardrobes of women who are a bit strapped for cash at the moment.
Chic on the Cheap is the brain child of Lydia Abate, a hot young woman who launched it way back in 2008 when fashion blogging was barely a thing. She was inspired to write a blog dedicated to budget friendly fashion after visiting a T.J Maxx store and finding a stunning bag that was being sold for just $60. Excited and unable to believe her luck, she decided she would continue to look for cheap chic finds – and share them all in her blog.
It’s been ten years but Lydia’s blog is still going strong. Thankfully, her nose for sniffing out a killer bargain is still amazing, too.
You can save your pennies and still look fabulous by visiting her blog here: https://www.iamchiconthecheap.com/
Frugal Fashionista is exactly what it sounds like – a fashion blog aimed at fashionistas who need to look rocking without splashing too much cash.
It’s a bit different to most budget friendly blogs, however. Its unique take on things is that it that it starts with a rather daring premise: We can all look just as good as celebrities for a fraction of the price.
In other words, Frugal Fashionista shows you how to dress like the stars without spending as much.
The blog also offers lots of shopping advice, style news round-ups, and it also takes readers requests. If there’s a celebrity whose wardrobe you want to replicate for cheap, you can get in touch with Frugal Fashionista and ask them to do a piece on it. Excellent!

Damsel in Dior
We loved the name of this blog so much that we just HAD to include it in here.

Broke and Beautiful
If you’ve ever been broke – or are broke right now – you’ll know that it’s not exactly easy to feel beautiful. It’s a hard time for anyone who’s broke, and indeed feeling beautiful might be the last thing on our minds at times.
But we all want to feel beautiful, and as outgoing humans we all deserve to feel beautiful.
Broke and Beautiful is a blog that – as its title suggests – helps broke women to look and feel beautiful again.

Kristina Bazan may or may not be a name you’re familiar with. However, if you’re into your fashion and are a regular reader of some blogs, you can’t fail to have not noticed her.
Kristina has been featured on Business Insider, allegedly has contracts with the likes of L’Oreal, she’s been named one of Forbes’ 30 under 30 in the art and style category, and she literally makes millions from her job as a digital influencer and all-round fashionista.
And the amazing thing is that she’s just 25 years old. When she was 22, she already had over 2 million Instagram followers. Wow. Just wow.
Her blog is called Kayture, and you can check it out here: https://www.kayture.com/
L’Oreal had this to say about her: “Kristina really works with us, she gives us feedback on our products, and as she is a real L’Oréalista and very connected with her community, it gives us very useful insights.”
Here’s what she had to say about her personal style: “My style has evolved pretty dramatically. When I started, I remember saying that I would never wear jeans or trousers. Now, it is more the opposite in that I would prefer to wear pants instead of a dress. I think I started by wearing outfits that were pretty girly and extremely feminine; now I am sporting more of an edgy look and more into a minimalistic aesthetic instead of doing color blocking or playing with too many prints. My style has always evolved around the idea of elegance and timelessness. I just always try to look chic and polished, but edgy, effortless, and casual at the same time.”
The Budget Babe
We love The Budget Babe – it’s one of our favourite blogs.
For one thing, we love the name and we also love its motto: “Fab without a fortune.”
Yes, girl! We’ll drink to that!

If you want to “stretch your wardrobe dollars” as she puts it, The Budget Babe is a fantastic blog that even shows you how to dress up like famous people without spending anywhere near as much money on your clothes as them.
It even lists affordable shopping galleries in your area and we reckon if funds are a bit low at the moment, you’re going to LOVE this blog.

Shannyn’s blogging story began when she was in a Chicago bar one night. She was making just $800 and realised that, rather than let that get her down, it was up to her to be happy on that salary.

Of course, this included buying clothes that didn’t cost a fortune.
Her blog is basically the way she lives her life. If Shannyn can be perfectly happy looking good without breaking the bank, her message is that you can, too.

Noelle’s Favourite Things
When we came across Noelle’s blog, we decided on two things:
1) Noelle is the cutest name EVER
2) Noelle the blogger is the cutest blogger EVER
These are facts you simply can’t argue with.

We love her photos, too. Noelle always chooses the most gorgeous, photogenic locations and we just wish we could be there.
