Do you feel like you’re always trying to play catch-up with fashion? You frequently watch various television shows, movies and read newspapers and fashion magazines, but at the end of the day, you still feel like you’re not in-the-know or totally out of it when it comes to fashion? This is because in the fashion industry, it seems like there’s something new and happening every week or so. And if you’re not constantly up-to-date, chances are, you’ll always feel left behind and that you’re wearing outfits and shoes that already went out of style last week.
The simplest and most convenient remedy that can satisfy your need to know what’s in and out in fashion is to follow a fashion blog. Today though, hundreds of fashion blogs exist on the World Wide Web. How can you make sure that you will be choosing the right fashion blogs to follow?
Below are some tips you can follow:
Pay attention to word-of-mouth recommendations. Ask your friends, colleagues and other acquaintances that you think have an impeccable taste in fashion. Chances are, they are loyal followers of some fashion blogs as well and get great ideas and tips from these sites. You will certainly love following these blogs as well and you won’t feel left behind in the ever-changing world of fashion.
Check out the various social media sites. The different social media sites today are teeming with recommendations on the best fashion blogs to follow. The best thing about taking some hints and tips from social media is that a variety of people recommend which ones to follow: celebrities, fashion models, stylists, designers and even just regular people. You’ll definitely get the best pick of fashion blogs you should be following as shared on various social media sites.
Take the time go through the recommended blogs. Read some posts on the blog, check out the images or graphics and find out if you are impressed with all of them. Find out if these posts are new or recent as well and how often the blogger publishes new content. Don’t follow blogs that do not have new posts in the recent week. This means that the blogger isn’t too committed about writing and updating his or her blog.
Finally, be wary of fashion blogs that feature too many positive product or brand reviews. You can’t blame bloggers from trying to earn some money by writing and featuring some products or brands on their blog. However, if a blogger keeps sharing only positive reviews or feedback about a brand, you may not be reading honest and unbiased posts. You can still follow such blogs but keep an open and discerning mind when reading their product reviews.
