Fashion bloggers have become the new Supermodels; gone are the days where magazines were the first to showcase new seasons. Social media has surpassed print media and Pinterest and Instagram are endless sources of blogger inspiration! Bloggers are in the know, behind the scenes and broadcasting it all instantly into our hot little hands.
With this in mind, we’ve chosen five of our favourite fashion bloggers, and five of our dresses, to show how you can get their look at a fraction of the price.
Arguably the most influential fashion blogger at present, Chiara Ferrigani oozes blogger inspiration in everything she does. From top to toe her outfits are on point.
Whether its casual day wear or formal gowns, Ferrigani knows how to style an outfit perfectly for every occasion. Our top tip: draw from everywhere and everywhere to create a list of instragram-enviable outfits like hers.
Get her relaxed style with a twist by opting for a blue lace jumpsuit. Dress it down with a pair of strappy sandals and a lightweight overcoat, or, a pair of classic block pumps for a cocktail affair.
The queen of cool, Susanna Lau (better known as Style Bubble) knows how to pair patterns with stripes with floral embossed handbags and drama-filled accessories.
If your opting to follow in her footsteps, then you better not be afraid of colour, pattern, or anything really that will make you stand out from the crowd. Look for bold shapes and styles (the bolder, the better), think full bodied skirts, crop tops with balloon sleeves or baroque patterned pointed boots.
Pull it all together with a crisp, neat hair do and a stylish set of glasses. Style Bubble dressing done right.
The Australian cult classic, Nicole oozes elegance no matter what she wears. She knows how to make casual classy, and classy sophistaced-casual. Look to her for top-to-toe perfection when it comes to formal dressing. Elegance, class and sophistication not included.
If you have a formal event in the near future, then look no further than Ms Warne. Opt for a floor length gown like this navy one form Nicholas the Label. The deep V and thigh high split make for a modern take on a classic style, while the simple shape keeps the overall look classy and sophisticated.
Pair it back with a messy bun and simple sling back stilettos for a perfectly simply overall look.
While she may ooze ‘thrown-together-ease’, we bet (hope!) her outfits have more planning behind them than a fairy tale wedding. Leandra, formally identified as Man Repeller, knows how to pull together a miss-matched outfit from nothing and make it the next hottest Summer/Autumn/Winter/Spring trend.
Get her look with this number of Alice McCall. The lacer-cut lace and modern detailing embody Leandra’s fun-tastic style, while the midi length and simple shape keep the overall look sophisticated and stylish.
Team the dress with a nude shoe and minimal gold accessories, then finish it off with a novelty clutch or handbag. Man Repeller indeed.
Her name may not be one that you know, but Blair Eadie has her names in the fashion-blogger-world lights for good reason. Known for her blog Atlantic-Pacific, Blair knows how to throw together an outfit with pazazz.
Work her wonderful-in-white style with a modern lace dress that draws shape from classic styles. Opt for one with fine detailing; think spaghetti straps and clean lines, then add a deep red lip, simple strap stilettos in white, and a bright coloured novelty bag to finish.
Blogger inspiration dressing ala Blair Eadie.
