As a fashion and internet lover (which is just a nicer way of saying addict), I find myself reading fashion blogs pretty often. I love getting inspired by the personal style of fashion bloggers. Even though their shopping budgets are usually much larger than mine, it’s fun to see what I can create and replicate with the items I already have in my closet. Since there are so many blogs out there, it can be difficult to find the best ones, so I’ve scoured my bookmarks to show you the ones I love the most.
CollegeFashion is fashion blog for college students by college students. It was started by Zephyr Basine, a graduate of the University of Massachusetts, in 2007. What was originally intended to be a personal blog, has grown into so much more. Zephyr now manages a staff of over 20 writers from universities all over the country. CollegeFashion writers cover beauty tips, style trends, and college lifestyle issues. They draw inspiration from TV shows, Disney movies, and everything in between. The “Looks on Campus” section features interviews with real college students. They’re the face of college style today. With so many different voices, CollegeFashion is a blog that speaks to everyone.
The Sartorialist is a blog dedicated to street style created by photographer Scott Shuman. His blog features photos of men, women and children of all ages from all over the world, some of them being famous faces while others could be you. Each photo is accompanied with little to no text. The beauty in that is that you can imagine so much about the wonderfully dressed people in the photographs. Shuman’s work received such high acclaim in the fashion photography world that his photos have been anthologized in two books, The Sartorialist and Closer.
Running in Wedges.
Running in Wedges chronicles the personal style of Nicole Alyse Sereda. The blog simply features photos of Sereda trekking through her home, New York City, with links to the items she‘s wearing. I love this blog simply because of her unique personal style. She has a taste for bohemian-inspired pieces, but pairs them with edgy additions. I think of her style as Rachel Zoe meets big city chic with some extra edge. She also posts giveaways and gives readers the opportunity to buy her clothes. Anyone with an eye for an edgy aesthetic who dreams of living in a big city will love her blog.
