blogging can be an overwhelming field in which to get started. I
recommend selecting a niche subject to help you define the direction of
your blog. For instance, instead of a blog about fashion accessories,
consider a more focused topic such as funky rings, or designer
sunglasses. Pick something you’re passionate about. You have to love the
subject matter or else you’ll run out of inspiration.
If you don’t know which direction to take your fashion blog, here are some categories to consider:
is a really cool way of documenting and sharing your local fashion
scene with the whole world. Street fashion bloggers are becoming more
influential as high-end designers turn to the streets as a source of
you follow celeb culture and love watching award shows to see what
people are wearing, perhaps celebrity fashion blogging is for you. The
positive side of starting a celebrity fashion blog is that there is a
lot of material to work with-a whole industry devoted to photos of
celebs. The downside is that this market is saturated, so you have to be
sure your blog is unique to get noticed.
you want to use your blog as a platform for starting a career in the
fashion industry (fashion publishing, in particular) you might want your
content to be focused on high-end designers and labels. Celebrate the
art of Oscar de la Renta, Alexander McQueen and Karl Lagerfeld with
posts about seasonal runway shows.
are so many sub-genres for this category. Pick something you really
connect with. Research the web for accessories that are unique and share
them through your posts. Perhaps you could work with a partner and take
a more conversational approach so your blog is more about two friends
conversing about cool finds.
with the accessories category, there are lots of paths to take a shoe
blog. Again, pick what works for you. If you are a master shoe shopper
and know all the best places to buy shoes online, share that with the
putting looks together? Share your work on your blog. This can be fun
and creatively fulfilling. Polyvore is a great resource suited for a
shopping or style guide blog.
survival of the fashion industry depends on its fast-paced cycles.
Start a fashion blog about the trends- what’s hot right now and what
will be hot in the future. Maybe you want a nostalgic blog about your
favourite trends from the past. Scrunchies anyone?
Fashion on a Budget
are many blogs already devoted to fashion on a budget and they are
great for targeting a young and frugal audience. Producing the content
will probably require a lot of digging the web for great deals and
unique finds, so be prepared to do some research.
you want an outlet to express your personal style. Start a fashion blog
about the awesomeness of how you dress, share photos, and post items of
Night Life Style
could approach this category with seriousness or irreverence –think
gofugyourself.com devoted to the cast of Jersey Shore. Whether you’re a
hardcore clubber who parties every weekend and are always looking for
the perfect body-hugging top, skirt, dress….or you want to have a
laugh at some of the ridiculously skanky club attire, this could be a
fun topic for you.
a decade, and have fun with it! Find some awesome old pictures, clips
from movies, movie posters, etc. Showcase and celebrate the awesome of
Alternative, Goth, Scene, etc.
blog is a great way to showcase alternative fashion. If you have unique
insight into a certain social scene, share what you think is great
about it. Alternative fashion blogs can also foster a strong online
community, which will bring readers back to your site regularly.
you are a designer I think a blog is a great idea. You get to post
pictures of your work, it can act as a portfolio site, and you can share
your experiences with other designers.
your friends come to you for suggestions on what to wear, consider
becoming an online fashion authority and start your own fashion advice
blog. Write posts that give tips on how to dress (ex. How to dress for a
job interview) and respond to fashion questions from your readers.
