With the endless cold weather, where clunky boots are your best friend, it is hard to feel inspired for your next shopping trip. Luckily, fashion inspiration can come from anywhere and by anywhere, I mean from fashion bloggers. The next time you are taking a break from your 10-page term paper, check out these talented, creative, and fashionable bloggers who will change your outlook on style. Be sure to take notes!


1. Carin Olsson of Paris in Four Months


You could say that Carin Olsson is living the dream: she is a freelance photographer and writer who calls Paris, France her home. Through her camera lens, Carin captures the fashion and glamour of Paris, New York, London and Milan Fashion Week. She has teamed up with designers like Gucci, Elie Saab, and Carolina Herrera too. Paris in Four Months is a free-ticket to Paris. Scroll through and you will see breathtaking photos of Parisian architecture, plenty of sweet treats, and fabulous fashions: a good excuse for procrastination.


2. Wendy Nguyen of Wendy’s Lookbook




For all of you petite ladies out there, Wendy’s Lookbook is going to be your new fashion handbook. Wendy Nguyen knows how to flatter her small frame with statement stripes, bold pastel coats and shoes that are to die for! She uses YouTube as an extension of her fashion platform where she has over 600,000 subscribers. She takes classic silhouettes and makes them modern with quirky and personal touches. Femme and fierce: the perfect combination!


3. Kristina Bazan of Kayture





Kristina Bazan is more than just a triple-threat. This Swiss beauty is the co-founder of her highly influential blog Kayture as well as a stylist, creative director and singer. She travels all over the world, working with designers like Yves Saint Laurent, Dolce &Gabbana, and Jimmy Choo (jealous) to name a few. Oh and she has accomplished all of this at just 20 years old: pretty incredible. Kristina is known for her angelic beauty and visually stunning photographs that have made her one of the biggest names in fashion blogging.


4. Tanesha Awasthi of Girl With Curves





Killer confidence, a rocking body and Instagram-worthy style? Yes, please. Tanesha Awasthi is all of those things and more. She completely embraces her curves and highlights them with statement patterns, full skirts and gorgeous bags. Tanesha is a published writer and designer, and her blog has won awards like Best Curvy Blog and Best Fashion Weblog. Spend 5 minutes scrolling through Girl With Curves and she will be your new fashion muse.


5. Jane Aldridge of Sea of Shoes



Eclectic, quirky, and completely unique: if her fire red hair doesn’t pack a punch, her style will. Jane Aldrige of Sea of Shoes bravely combines pieces of clothing that you would never imagine working together. She wears socks and sandals and completely rocks them! Her outfit-of-the-day posts are interweaved with her latest fashion and décor inspiration. You will become hooked with her 80’s influence and vibrant locks.


6. Solange Knowles of mydamnblog




She may be the sister of Queen Bey herself, but Solange Knowles commands the thrown all on her own for fashion royalty! She is known for taking fashion risks on the red carpet, and in mydamnblog, she is just as daring. Her blog is an explosion of bright colour, eye-catching prints and a whole lot of fierceness. There is a reason why Solange is known as a modern muse: she knows a damn thing or two about fashion.


7. Sarah Mikaela of Framboise Fashion




Sarah Mikaela is the cool-girl Londoner with an equally effortless style. Her fashion is greatly influenced by London street style through her neutral colour palette and her timeless silhouettes. Just when you think you’ve mastered her look, this L’Oreal collaborator will surprise you with a pair of red suede booties or a bright purple clutch. After spending a few minutes discovering Framboise Fashion, you will secretly wish you could raid her closet and have a chat with her over tea.


8. Matthias Geerts of MattG Style




European men sure know a thing or two about how to dress. At just 20 years old, Matthias Geerts from Antwerp, Belgium, runs a successful men’s fashion and lifestyle blog that reaches over 100,000 people. Did I mention the blog is only one year old? He regularly collaborates with H&M and still finds time for college. How many men in college look this sophisticated and dapper? Matthias’ fashion sense is very classic and traditional, but he sure looks handsome in pastel trousers. He is definitely one to keep an eye out for. This guy is going places.

Delisha is the Campus Correspondent for Carleton University. She is pursuing a Bachelor of Honours degree in Communications and English with a concentration in Creative Writing. If she isn't on Tumblr or reading a novel geared at perfecting an abstract thinking, she is asleep. She was born and raised in Barbados so she has an island life perspective of easy living. She enjoys working out, good quotes, yoga, and listening to music. She hopes to use her talent for writing to mold language in a way that it serves the world best. As Tupac Shakur once said, “I don’t want to change the world, I want to spark the mind of the person who eventually changes the world.” This is her hope as well.
