In the Spotlight: Bloggers on Fashion

The world’s designers recently presented their new looks on catwalks from New York to Paris during Fashion Week, so I decided to hunt through the closet — err, browse the WordPress.com community — for some eye-catching fashion blogs that not only stay on top of the trends du jour, but customize their themes to reflect their own personal styles.

Today, let’s shine the spotlight on these blogs:

Brooklyn Bliss

Brooklyn Bliss

Corrie created Brooklyn Bliss as a personal blog, which has since transformed into a popular site for fashion, design, and vegan lifestyle, focused on vegan-friendly and cruelty-free products. Corrie has really made the site her own, customizing Bueno in cool ways. I love the textured custom background of bricks, which adds an edge, and also like how she uses the Custom Design upgrade: she’s activated bold, stencil-like font for the site title, post titles, and menu items, and splashes bright magenta across the page in links, social media buttons, and other details. The site design evokes urban fashion and a city lifestyle — a total win.

Vintage Reflection

Amy, a fashion stylist and visual merchandiser living in South West London, is passionate about vintage clothing: she mixes rare and antique finds with high street fashion and adores bright colors and floral prints. (You can see this preference in her lovely custom header image.) Fun fact: Amy and her boyfriend, Dave, snap all the images on the site (Amy takes self-portraits using a remote and a tripod). I also love her sidebar images: portraits from forest shoots displayed as old film photographs. It’s a nice accent that helps to create an overall vintage feel (and if you’re interested in doing something similar on your own blog, it’s easy to achieve with an online photo editor like PicMonkey or Pixlr).

The Style Voyager

The Style Voyager

The Style Voyager showcases the effectiveness of the theme Imbalance2 for a magazine-style fashion and design site. The home page displays a gorgeous grid of posts and featured images, which allows you to view the latest content all at once. Individual posts maintain a traditional blog-style format and elegantly display the site’s fashion shoots. The black-and-white site logo on the top left and the social media and newsletter subscription icons on the top right create a minimal, sophisticated look — just like the outfits that grace these pages.

More fashion blogs

In addition to the trio above, check out more fashion blogs below. Cream & Coal is a great pick for snow and surf culture, while Wax Wane is an online space for men’s fashion.

Glitter ‘N Glue is a fun choice for fashion DIY enthusiasts out there, while ClosetCast has some lovely photo shoots.

The Fashion Medley rounds up recent fashion shows (and takes advantage of our gallery feature, as shown in this Givenchy show recap).

Finally, Sage x Clare is a visual feast of fashion, photography, and lifestyle.

    You ought to take a look at the virtual fashion scene — that of Second Life. You don’t know how many blogs are devoted to the fashion scene on the Grid, either part time (like my own) or full time. Some of the things available for an avatar are fierce; some purely elegant; and there is much on the cutting edge. Try searching up “Second Life” and “fashion” combined some time, and see what the most fashionable avatars around wear!
