Clothes! We have to wear them. So it makes sense that we like to wear them well. Fashion blogs rule the online blogging platform hands down. Today I want to share 30 fashion blogs with you. This article is for everyone that loves fashion, and it’s specifically aimed at anyone wishing to start a fashion blog.
Within the fashion blog niche, you will find so many microblogging niches. You will also find an insane amount of copycat blogs. By this, I mean blogs that are very similar in the type of fashion they are promoting, the themes they use, and even the color palette. And it’s only natural that this would happen, young fashionistas love to blog, and they love fashion and so in a sense fashion blogging has developed its own community.
It’s common to find fashion bloggers commenting on other fashion blogs and giving each other encouragement and support. It’s fantastic to see people doing it for themselves. And doing what they love.
So I’ve tried to find the right mix of different fashion, as well as fashion blogs that stand out in some unique way. Fashion blogs are as much about the blogger as they are about fashion. (True for many blogs!)
Why Do Fashion Blogs Remain So Popular?
Year in, year out, the fashion blog niche remains at the top. But fashion is so much more than clothing. It’s about attitude and self-expression; it’s about seeing and being seen. It’s a statement. And you are either a trendsetter or a follower of fashion. Even if you make a stand against fashion, that in itself becomes a type of fashion.
Fashion is art. Fashion is now. Fashion is all about being creative, breaking boundaries, creating style, influencing others, expressing self. And fashion bloggers deliver fashion to us on a digital platter. Fashion can be frivolous, it can seem superfluous and lacking substance, but that would be a gross misjudgment. Fashion is a multi-billion dollar business! Without fashion, the world would be less colorful and less dramatic, but fashion can also be as practical as it can be fantastical.
And this is why fashion blogs and fashion bloggers form a vital part of the fashion industry. For fashion bloggers and the millions of people who follow them, fashion is a serious business. Being an “authority” on fashion brings a certain status and a type of prestige. How can it not?
Top bloggers you will meet today have managed to not only use their creativity to create fashion others love, but they have also succeeded in promoting and marketing their “brand.” And in the fashion world, that often equates to your own name. Fashion bloggers often become celebrities in their own right, as we shall see.
Fashion Blogs vs. Instagram vs. Pinterest
One social network that uplifts this visual industry a notch higher is Instagram. This social media platform is the go-to for many fashion lovers who indulge their fashion fantasies by following the fashionistas they wish to emulate.
But for this article, I want to focus on fashion popular blogs first. Most, if not all, fashion bloggers are also active on Instagram. Having both a blog and an Instagram following is standard practice for many bloggers. And of course, Insta is the place where influencers first broke into the scene as successful ambassadors for brands and product placement.
Today “influencing” is a common and well-known word that gets flung about and for a good reason. Top influencers (often celebrities, but also fashion bloggers with huge followings) dominate the platform.
Instagrammers had a brief time in the limelight when the influencer phenomena emerged. But recently another interesting fact has come to light, which is of interest to bloggers. Pinterest.
Just like Instagram, it is a visual platform. Pinterest is slightly different. It’s very efficient at increasing traffic to your blog. And it will pay all bloggers, not just fashion bloggers, to take note of this platform as a viable search engine.
Who Are The Fashion Bloggers Dominating the Fashion Blog Niche?
These self-styled digital influencers represent a new breed of fashion bloggers. They are young entrepreneurs, and they don’t fit into one box. Today bloggers can wear many hats, and fashion bloggers prove this. These young women, and more often now men too, are versatile and innovative.
Fashion is always changing, but the style is timeless. All blogs, including fashion blogs, have to be updated regularly. Many fashion blogs that started 10 years ago no longer exist, or they evolve onto a different platform.
When I was researching for this article, I found many fashion blogs without recent posts. Often this is because they use Instagram almost exclusively. Other times it’s because the blog is now a store instead, and again Instagram is where the action is. As you will see below, the featured fashion bloggers all have recent and regular posts. Sometimes the founders of fashion blogs step back and get people to run their blogs. But when blogs get left untouched and without updates, this affects traffic and rankings. New blogs appear daily, with new fashionistas geared up and ready to share their fashion passion with fans and followers.
A company called digitalbrandarchitects.com seems to be behind the scenes of many fashion blogs. They handle the branding, marketing, and “business,” leaving the creator of the blog to do what they love, which is influencing, traveling, and curating new looks!
Can You Make Money With A Fashion Blog?
Short answer: Yes!
Most fashion bloggers are quite astute at fusing their entrepreneurial spirit with their love of fashion into a solid online enterprise. Just like other blogs, fashion blogs are perfect for creating passive streams of income. If you want to learn how to make money online check out my articles.
It’s very cool to have a fashion blog. You get to dress up, flaunt your style, create stunning photos, and at the same time, be the face of your own online store. You get to choose the brands, accessories, and make-up. At the same time you become an expert in beauty, and you can create a beauty blog as well.
Setting up photoshoots and taking effective photos will give you experience with photography, which down the line, means you get to add photography as an additional category to your fashion blog or you can create a separate photography blog. (Often best lifestyle blogs and top travel blogs have photography as a side hustle.) You stamp your own personality onto it, and then you get to have fun influencing others.

Affiliate marketing is huge on fashion blogs. Many fashion bloggers also have a category geared to teach other fashionistas how to make money blogging. And because the products being sold on fashion blogs differ from products being promoted on, for example, “how to blog” blogs the tips and hacks are different. So it’s a good idea to find fashion blogs that cover this and learn from their advice. They are especially helpful when it comes to advice on how to form collaborations with companies.
As with other blogging niches, you can monetize your site quite easily with a fashion blog. The platforms are different, but the concept is the same. The Dallas-based company, rewardStyle.com, is the most well-known monetization platform for fashion bloggers. They focus on fashion and home decor.
Often fashion blogs double as style magazines and offer readers travel, fashion, decor, beauty, and even fitness and health advice. You will find there something from fitness blogs, health blogs and also from interior design blogs about. Many fashion bloggers start off as single gals living it up and then slide effortlessly into motherhood – creating a mom blogs. Their blogs transform as they do.
The LikeToKnow.it app and Others
The website liketoknowit.com has an app that fashion bloggers use frequently. Recently though, many fashion bloggers are changing from this because it got so popular that products on one blog could be found on many blogs. In the past, you’d see “Shop my Looks” and be redirected via rewardStyle to liketoknow.it (or some other platform.)
But now you may see “Shop my Instagram”. This app allows followers to shop directly from your ‘gram account. It’s no longer necessary to go to the website. It also explains why so many fashionistas are not blogging anymore. But luckily for us, many still are. There are loads of other affiliate programs like Shopstyle Collective, Fashion mia, Nordstrom, and New Chic.

4. Gabi Gregg aka Gabi Fresh
You may also like
Gabi started her blog out of pure frustration because she did not see plus-size women like her being represented in the media. But I can’t actually find “the blog.” The address gabifresh.hes.fr is defunct. She was, however, active on LiveJournal, which is where she first made some noise. Since then, she has been featured in every noteworthy fashion rag you can think of!
She is also the face of Playful Promises, her lingerie line, and online store. She was instrumental in bringing the itsy bitsy, not so teeny weeny “fatkini” into the limelight with her collaboration, Swimsuitsforall. So in my eyes, even though Gabi Gregg is awesome and campaigns for body positivity, she is more of an Instagram sensation, an activist, a model, a designer, and a digital influencer than she is a blogger. But she did have a blog during college called youngfatnadfabulous.com, which is no longer around.
Being one of the first digital influencers to highlight the need for plus-size fashion to be accepted alongside haute couture, she has gained notoriety and an Insta following of 778k, last count! Her GabiFresh Facebook page is constantly updated, used to promote her brands and online shopping outfits.
As a designer, she encourages big women to wear what they want as they throw fashion rules out the window. She teamed up with our next featured fashion blogger, Nicolette Mason. Mason is also plus-size; they brought out a fashion line called Premme in July 2017, which they closed in 2019 to pursue individual projects.

Who runs it now? The blog is not active in that the last post was in 2019, but Christie is still very active on Instagram (475k followers) and YouTube. Christie is a perfect example of an influencer that has developed her brand and created a successful business and is now a successful entrepreneur. She co-founded Bambi Studios and also runs The Straw Journal, an interior design account on Instagram (11.3k followers).
Christie loves neutrals. Her niche is all about elevating, utilizing, transforming, and curating these shades and tones.
There is a definite American feel to her fashion sense. She can go from boho dresses, summer vibes, edgy fashion, androgyny, and minimalism. But she has a way of drawing all this back to the American feeling of freedom. Besides, it is interesting to see how her style stands out comfortably, no matter where she goes.
When it comes to striking the balancing femininity and masculinity, Christie has hit the nail on the head on this one. She blends her masculine pieces, such as male shirts with her feminine ones, creating a unique style that we have probably never seen before. She focuses on natural tones such as grey, white, and black. This type of style looks very effortless, but it takes a lot of craft to pull together.

Hence, we cannot compare her to anyone, because there is no other like her or similar to her. The simplest style is most definitely one of the hardest to pull off. It is not surprising that she has a staggering 3.4 M following on Instagram, and her blog is on the list of the best fashion blogs.
25. Jenn Im @imjennim
Jenn Im’s clothing line describes itself as a line that is, “…inspired by the girl next door with an eclectic style.” She has confirmed that her line is a reflection of her wardrobe, which she showcases on her Instagram page that has 1.7 million followers.
Also, describing her style in one word is impossible as she can switch things up frequently and regularly without losing that personal touch she possesses. Simple, classy staples have laid the foundation for her style and are indeed the diverging point. Furthermore, the forever evolving manner of Jenn Im is fascinating to watch. You do not know what will happen next. How thrilling!

I also put Jamie Mansfield on the list of the best fashion blogs. At a glance, you cannot miss Jamie’s luscious hair. One could say it is her main accessory. Speaking of accessories, she has partnered with numerous jewelry lines such as Ciaobella and Neon Gypsy designs. Jamie even mentioned that if she weren’t an influencer, she would be a full-time jewelry designer. Her gallivanting heavily influences her sense of style; for instance, when in a tropical area, she tends to lean more on the boho sides of fashion.
27. Candela Pelizza @candela_________
Born in Argentina, Candela Pelizza Tricarico’s wardrobe is an envy of many. The former model traveled the world to walk runaways. The nomadic characteristic of her work influenced her fashion sense. It is known that she has a soft spot for Fendi and is frequently spotted wearing lots and lots of Fendi.
Moreover, she has 547K followers on Instagram, and her fashion features bold colors and has splashes of oversized silhouettes that enhance her chic street style. With every season, she always has an item or two that she is obsessed with and will work around that.
3 Of The Best Men’s Fashion Blogs/Bloggers
If you think that fashion blogs are only blogs for women – you are very wrong. Actually, there are many really inspiring men’s fashion blogs online. In retrospect, I should have reviewed half and half. But just for good measure, here are 3 men’s fashion blogs that I found excellent, and each one is completely different.
28. What My Boyfriend Wore (WMBW)
Where is the blog (and blogger) based? Cape Town, South Africa.
When was it started? 2012.
Who started it? Sergio Ines (his girlfriend at the time initially started it, and it took off.)
Who runs it now? Sergio Ines, influencer, writer, blogger.
This blog is an absolute gem. In fact, it outstrips many fashion blogs aimed at women because Sergio Ines is a brilliant writer. And a very snappy dresser! This is a legit fashion diary. The blog posts are his own. His fashion sense is impeccable. He is active on Twitter, and he has an Instagram account. His daily tweets appear in a column on the right of his blog, so it adds to the value because you get a sense of immediateness. It makes the blog feel very personable and authentic.
This is a good blog because he has paid attention to many details that make you want to keep looking around on his site. He has a really cool content column. His blog categories range from Dapper Dexterity, Menswear101, Sartorial Sundays, and many more. If you want to see many other cool, top male blogs please check out my article.

29. Steven Onoja

Where is the blog (and blogger) based? Nigerian – born New Yorker.
Who started it? Steven Onoja.
Who runs it now? Steven Onoja.
The blog is not actually a blog. There are no posts. Steven’s base is Instagram. If you go to his website, you’ll discover it is nothing more than a link so people can find him on Insta. It appears that it may become a blog slash online store at some stage. But for now, it’s just there for show. But Steven is definitely a stylish man!
Steven breaks the rules when it comes to fashion. Being born and raised in Nigeria has had a lot of impact on his style. Now residing in New York, his idea of fashion is a form of self-expression. Indeed, with his artistic background, he has a unique way of weaving his state of mind into his dressing. He has innate style, and his artistic streak is evident in his awesome photos.
Steven aims to inspire men from all walks of life to have the boldness and ability to pull off this expression effortlessly. He has 97.1k followers on Instagram. This is evidence that men also need representation in this world of fashion. And they appreciate those who are already in this field.

Fashion changes all the time. I bet a year from now some of these fashion bloggers will still be at it, while others will have moved on to bigger and better things. As you can see from the fashion blogs I reviewed, some of the blogs take a back seat to Instagram now. Some fashion blogs that were reviewed last year had to be removed because there are no recent posts. This is completely natural as many fashion bloggers are really young when they start a fashion blog.
And so as soon as their lives take off they don’t have time for a blog. Others have used their blog as a platform to increase their online presence, and others have turned their fashion blogs into mini empires.
Whether you want to start a fashion blog for fun or for profit, as long as you follow a few pointers that bloggers need to follow to make their blogs accessible to the target audience, there are no limits.
You get to call the shots! (And style them!)
