Top 5 Sites Every Fashion Blogger Should Use for Latest Fashion News & Styles

FASHION EDUCATION

January 2019 marks the year Fashion Icon Iris Apfel at 97 signed her first contract with IMG Models. Iris was featured as a cover model for MAC Cosmetics at 90, demonstrating to the world, you can become anything you want regardless of time and age; this year she lands her first modeling contract. Iris is the example of living without boundaries. Forget societal guidelines claiming you’re suppose to accomplish things at a certain age. Keep believing in pure things and life will always work out in your favor. No matter how long it takes, with determination and effort you’ll make it to your destination.

Sometimes where you land is even greater than your original dream.

Living out your dreams means to speak it into existence and become everything you want before you finish your journey. My ultimate dream is to launch my own fashion magazine and clothing line. Everyday I envision myself walking down the runway at the end of a show, clapping and cheering my models for their hard work. I see myself holding my magazine in one arm with a Watermelon Slush from Zero Degrees in the other hand.

Never stop believing in yourself, always see the big picture of your dreams.

My faith teaches me nothing is coincidental and everything happens for a reason. Therefore, I put my trust in God and remain optimistic to learn something valuable from each situation I encounter. As I’m finding my way in the fashion industry through journalism, I’m educating myself in numerous ways to become an expert in this area.

Currently, I’m developing better photography skills, sharpening my eyes on the latest style trends and learning how to strengthen my writing skills. For me to become a better journalist, I need to read more fashion content. Aside from blogs, here are my favorite five sites I use to stay updated with industry news and latest styles.

Pin Me!

BUSINESS OF FASHION

Business of Fashion provides information such as fashion week, behind the scenes of companies who bankrupt and the growth of sustainable fashion. BOF educates me into thinking theoretically and economically about how to change or adapt to the industry business-wise. The informative site is one of the top global marketplaces for fashion job seekers. If you sign-up with an account, you’ll receive fashion job alerts from the top companies straight to your inbox. I’ve seen tons of open positions just not in my city; however, I’m faithful one will pop up for me.

Aside from a business standpoint, BOF features interviews and articles from the top designers, PR practitioners, photographers and magazine editors who share how they landed their current positions. BOF also includes posts about the future of fashion, the influence of social media and the effect digital marketing has on the industry.

GLAM OBSERVER

Driven by Digital Analyst and Fashion Consultant Giada Graziano, shares skillful ways to tailor your job application and take your career in fashion to the next level. I mainly use Glam Observer to learn modern job hunting tips. Graziano provides substantial suggestions in her articles on how to land a job in the fashion industry. Glam Observer has a few interviews and podcasts with fashion creatives, entrepreneurs and influencers sharing their journey on breaking into the fashion industry.

PR COUTURE

I graduated my university with a bachelor’s degree in Public Relations focusing on the fashion field. PR Couture is helpful for me because they elaborate more from the pr practitioner perspective vs the influencer’s view. I must say, reading PR Couture refreshes my pr and journalism skills. I get a second wind of education in learning new ways from the pr perspective in pitching to brands, writing press kits, sharpening marketing techniques and expanding my communication skills for promoting campaigns. PR Couture shares solutions for solving media crisis and how to grow as a campaign manager.

5 Sites to Stay Updated With Fashion News & Styles

PORTER

Instead of spending my $12 at Midici Neapolitan Pizza, I like to spend it on the latest print copy of PORTER. Next to Vogue, it’s one of my favorite magazines for photography inspo. The glossy pages kick my creative juices in flow. After flipping though the book-like magazine, I instantly find new pose angles and an appreciate for my environment. Featured photographers always showcase the subject in an editorial but artsy way, it’s like I can feel what the creative was thinking when they captured the image.

For online purposes, I invest in reading their editorial pieces, which features quick reads of style essentials, beauty hacks, exclusive interviews with culturally exposed angles for the mind body and soul.

WHO WHAT WEAR

An inside look from fashion and beauty experts on style suggestions, celebrity trends and healthy skincare tips. Who What Wear delivers engaging articles on how to snag a look-for-less while getting insight on favorite it girls’ skincare regimens. Because of the site’s consistent update in the latest wearable trends, Who What Wear is a great platform for those beginning their fashion journey and style development.

I like this site because they highlight styles that are adaptable for everyone. Some digital magazines showcase looks from super couture and high-end brands, which is intriguing to view but not practical for the everyday woman. I like Who What Wear because their mission is similar to mine, delivering fashion news made for non-celebrities too.

Investing in your dream means taking the necessary steps to growing your potential. Education in any form is helpful to expanding yourself in your area of expertise. Life has no limit to teach you lessons in various ways. Don’t be afraid to explore your field by investing in books, online courses or even emailing mentors for their expert opinion.

What magazines and platforms do you read or visit online?

    I love this, we’re never too old to achieve our dreams! I often forget this and worry that I won’t get to do something I love because I’m almost 25 and I’ve missed the chance to go back to uni or something to study something new, but I know I’m never too old to start on a new path. I don’t actually read many magazines, a lot of the time if I want to read something about fashion I know there’s plenty of amazing blogs out there! ❤
