If you’re anything like me, one of your favorite pasttimes, amongst Netflix bingeing and cake baking, is looking at fashion blogs and borderline-stalking bloggers on their websites and social media accounts for outfit inspo. This is a great and enjoyable hobby to have, but can be disheartening if you’re a college student and can barely afford a Venti Starbucks, much less a Valentino purse. Most fashion blogs seem to be full of designer accessories and expensive jeans. But style is style, regardless of the price tag or brand, and whether you spend $5 or $500 on sunglasses, fashion is for all of us.
We’ve rounded up a list of budget-friendly fashion bloggers so good, you’ll be inspired — no matter how much money you have to spend.
We see Jean‘s name pop up time and time again for her affordable, petite style. We love how helpful her tips are when it comes to petite sizing — not to mention she shoots her indoor photos by herself, on a tripod! (Major talent.)
Ali can make a killer flat layout on her Instagram, and “A Dash of Details” is where we go to find the affordable pieces we need before our next beach vacation. And if you don’t have a beach vacation planned, you certainly will want to after you check out her envy-inducing travels.
Kathleen’s blog was created out of the realization that post-grad life wasn’t as fabulous as Carrie Bradshaw had led her to believe (even as adults, we’re still trying to solve the puzzle of how Carrie could afford a closet-full of Manolos on a writer’s salary). But looking at her inspiring outfits and picture-perfect lifestyle, you might have to disagree that it is extremely fabulous (except she pulls it all off with affordable pieces and doable outfit ideas).
While she does splurge on investment pieces like designer shoes, Tiffany spends the rest of her budget modestly and wisely, opting for pieces from budget favorites like H&M and J.Crew. We love how she educates her readers on where to spend and where to save.
