UK’S Top 10 Fashion Blogs
Fashion bloggers make the world go round. At least that’s what the statistics will have us believe.
Fashion designers and brands have been quick to pick up on the absolutely essential role that blogs play on the fashion scene that nowadays it is not uncommon to see bloggers filling integral roles in campaigns and commercials.
So which of these heralds of the stylish and trendy is worth your time? We were wondering the same thing as well; so we decided to come up with a list of the UK’s top 10 fashion blogs which every fashionista who is worth their needle should know about and definitely follow.
The personal style of founder Sussana Lau also known as Susie Bubble is a very endearing element of Style Bubble. Started in 2006, Style Bubble has grown to become one of the most widely recognised blogs on the planet with tens of thousands of visitors each day.
Celebrity designers like Nannette Lepore and Christopher Kane are among the fans of this particular space of the blogosphere with Nannette Lepore telling the New York Times in 2010 that Style Bubble showed a “fun approach that is at the same time realistic”
Suzie’s informed opinion on the latest fashion trends, as well as her eclectic lifestyle have more often than not found her among the front row seats at fashion shows, sitting among power brokers such as Anna Wintour, editor-in-chief of Vogue.
A blog dedicated to the fashion and style needs of men everywhere, Menswear Style has grown from its humble beginnings in 2012 to attain global outreach.
The appearance of Menswear style so high on our list is significant, and an emphatic reminder that the days when one could count the number of men’s wear bloggers on the planet with one hand are far behind us. They now have contributors and writers from all over the world giving fashion savvy advice to the uber male who is willing to take an extra second to pay attention to their appearance.
