Fashion at best, can be confusing and at its worst can be downright intimidating! We have all been overloaded with trends and tips and the like and nowhere is this more of a minefield than online. I read many a blog and I wanted to give you my top bloggers of home and away to clear the smokescreen and get you on your way to feeling fashion fit.

Soooo hard to narrow it down but below is an eclectic mix that can satisfy your initial curiosity…
Leandra Medine has a style all of her own. As a New York based journo, Leandra has a witty, insightful and sometimes even cheeky take to her site. Originally Medine began her blog with the simple question “Would this repel a man or not?” That premise has since morphed into a more personal account of her evolving tastes and features women who are empowering and consciously dressing themselves for their own enjoyment.
Ari Seth Cohen is a freelance photographer and writer also based in the Big Apple. Originally he focussed on men and women of a certain age- namely the over 60’s who he thought were largely ignored by the media. Let me tell you, there is nothing to ignore about these silver soldiers! Any one of them can give you a lesson in how to look and feel incredible at any age!!!
Fashion obsessed. That pretty much sums it up. Put simply, BryanBoy breathes this industry through every perfectly poised and pouted pore! Now a fixture on America’s Next Top Model, Bryan has the contacts and the knowledge to guide you through the fabulous and fantastic orbit he and his followers (of which there are many!) currently inhabit.

Much closer to home but none the less informative, here are my favourites that I think make the most of this blossoming industry…
Jessica Stein was 2012’s Cosmopolitan “Blogger of the Year”- no easy feat considering the sheer volume of her contemporaries in the past few years. What I think sets her blog apart is her openness and warmth. You are made to feel like you are sharing in her experiences, travels and choices and to me that is distinctly Australian.
The Grand Dame of Australian bloggers. To be honest, Patty Huntington, the voice and director/writer/creator is so much more than a blogger. There isn’t too many of us working in the industry today that haven’t heard of Patty or looked up to, been burnt by or at the very least have been inspired by her work. Breaking fashion news, insider whispers and straight to the point old fashioned journalism makes this site my go to point every day.

Managing Editor Tash Williams has aimed to be one of this country’s most eminent online fashion blogging powerhouses. It is incredibly comprehensive, informative and gives the reader an insight into the whole team of guest bloggers and talent that this site brings along for the ride. Celebrity style, trends and runway reports are immediately posted and the exclusive member offers keep readers on the pulse. It is so easy to navigate and a wonderful first stop for an all encompassing look into this world.
These by no means are the complete works of what is available, the world is literally full of bloggers telling their own very personal and perspective driven points of view on a world we all want a piece of.
Now I am about to enter this world myself with my own blog iNLiKEFLiNN so I am also very much looking forward to bringing you my take and insight into this industry and I hope you enjoy the ride!!!
