Whether snapping double-tap worthy images of their personal style for Instagram or reporting the international runway’s top looks, bloggers seem to be dominating the fashion world. With a focus on menswear, womenswear or personal style, these online influencers have introduced an entirely different way for the modern shopper to find outfit inspiration with a personal flair.
From Kate Loves Me’s street style menswear to Atlantic-Pacific’s East-meets-West-Coast edge, personal style bloggers give readers an intimate and tailored approach to the fashion industry. There is definitely a hierarchy of bloggers out there, but fashion changes quickly, and so does the blogosphere. We’ve compiled 15 fashion bloggers, both established names and hidden gems, that inspire us right now.
1. Kate Loves Me
Based in London, blogger Prince Pelayo (yes, that is his name) maintains the blog Kate Loves Me. This handsome fashionisto has a lot going for his blog, from stunning personal style shots to runway coverage. He continues to follow a personal motto of his: Be the most authentic person you can be.
2. Trop Rouge
A New York model with the best tousled hair we’ve seen since JLaw, Christina Caradona has turned Trop Rouge into a must-visit site for an inside look at the model-slash-bloggers’ cosmopolitan life. From her modeling work with Target to her striking personal style, she’s got it made online—and has a circle of blogger friends to keep you reading for days.
3. Ring My Bell
You might recognize this British beauty Ashley Madekwe as Ashley Davenport on the ABC drama Revenge. However, in real life the actress is a personal style guru. Having evoked her London-girl vibes for Ring My Bell, she offers clever style and runway opinions. Nothing beats a girl with humor and (as she says) with “more shoes than sense.”
4. Brooklyn Blonde
A quintessential personal style blogger, Helena (aka the Brooklyn Blonde) is a born-and-raised New Yorker who, as you’ve probably already guessed, lives in Brooklyn. Her blog showcases her distinct fashion choices and lifestyle, as well as her many travels. (She’s also a must-read simply due to her extensive palette of excellent lip colors.)

Twenty-something art history student Claire Geist takes red hair and personal style on her blog, De Lune. Her recent accessories collaboration, De Lune X By Boe, has taken this blogger/student to a whole new level, but she continues to deliver the artsy yet casually cool look she has built her name on.
7. Dapper Lou
Handsome images meet fresh perspective for this style blog. First uploaded in 2009 by Lougè Delcy, Dapper Lou was a place to showcase the blogger’s daily personal style.

A fashion, beauty and lifestyle blog by a graphic designer (and cupcake enthusiast) named Kimberly, Eat.Sleep.Wear. is a go-to site if you’re looking for runway coverage, personal style and outfit inspiration.
