From opulent to relaxed, fashion week is an annual celebration of creativity that will inevitably help shape fashion trends for the months that follow it. So girls, how can you get in early and throw a suitably fashion forward look?
We’ve assembled a list of fashion bloggers who have caught our eye rocking fresh looks off the runway to help get you inspired!

The blog also features her own personal touches and personal posts. Though she blogs in Spanish, large portions of her website are in English, and the language of style is entirely universal. Every post comes with a unique outfit she has tailored herself that exudes European flair.

GalMeetsGlam is a fashion blog started by Julia Engel in 2011 when she was a junior in college studying Business. Her site aims to be a source of inspiration for everything from beauty to home and travel. Her site features detailed posts structured around stunning photographs of her inspired outfits that leave us yearning for more of her wistful wardrobe. So how can you add a little wistfulness to your look?
Pastels have made a comeback this year and we couldn’t be more pleased. Powdery, summery shades can be worn a variety of ways and are always a fun, flirty, feminine option, regardless of the occasion. To take a leaf out of GalMeetsGlam, we’ve opted for a similarly pastel style in the Calais Dress by Alex Perry.
To embody Julia’s carefree look, opt for minimal jewellery to keep attention on your dress, and a loose, relaxed hairdo to frame your face, and decolletage. Go for a simple, nude heel and matching clutch for an understated, but still elegant look that’ll be sure to catch the eye; undeniably perfect for fashion week!
FashionVibe is a blog run by Barcelona-based founder Zina Charkoplia, who believes that being stylish is not just a hobby, but a way of life. Her blog is filled with page, after page of inspiring outfits – some even straight from the runways of countless fashion weeks she’s attended. Her unique style shows through in every post she makes, and they’ve inspired us to seek something just as spectacular!
Mini dresses never go out of style, and as Zina demonstrates – there are plenty of ways to turn a seemingly ordinary outfit into something extraordinary! Our Over Exposed Dress by Mossman features a pleated mini skirt with full-length sleeves that make it perfect to fit the season. Add the wow-factor to your look with your own pair of knee-high boots and an over-the-shoulder bag to match for a truly edgy look, or opt for something simpler, and more toned down – the beauty of simplicity is versatility, and colour-block dresses like these make creating outfits a breeze.
At GlamCorner, we have an entire section of colour block dresses suited for a variety of occasions. These dresses can be dressed up, or down depending on your needs – and are perfect no matter the time of year or occasion!
