10 post ideas for fashion bloggers

I'm no fashion blogger, but I am a 23 year old female who enjoys reading fashion blogs. Sometimes though I just can't handle them. Nothing personal but I don't really want to scroll through 22 photos of you awkwardly fake laughing/looking off into the distance only to find 3 sentences worth of text with approximately 45 affiliate links. To be clear I have no problem with affiliate links (as long as you're disclosing them!) or these types of photos; just make sure you put some effort into the text at the bottom. I want to read something that explains why those jeans will make me look a foot taller or some funny story about the awkwardness that ensued while taking those photos. Without the witty text your blog is nothing more than a narcissistic Pinterest page, and nobody wants to read that.

So dear fashion blogger, what posts should you be writing you ask? Today I've come up with 10 posts that I'd love to read. Love to read so much that I'd probably tweet the links, pin every photo, and save it as a favorite post. I promise if I want to read these posts there are so many other girls out there who'd love to too. So now do what you claim to want to do and write helpful content so we can all help make the world a more fashionable place.

1. Pinterest looks that don't work in real life
2. How to properly roll jeans for booties
3. 3 favorite items that weren't gifted to you
4. How to hold your phone to take the perfect OOTD Instagram picture
5. Weekend worth of outfits for under $200
6. Must have basics for every closet
7. How to layer without looking like a snowman
8. The best transition pieces
9. What jewelry to wear with different necklines/hair styles
10. trendy pieces that have a good chance of coming back into style


  1. Love these ideas! I read a very few fashion blogs because honestly I get bored with most of them. But the ones that post actual helpful information like this I love!

  2. But really, if someone could come up with #4 I would definitely appreciate it - I've never been able to figure it out!

    Pick Your Beau

  3. ALL OF THESE. Someone PLEASE! Especially the Instagram shot. How the hell do they do it?!

  4. Ha! I love these. Challenge accepted! Maybe minus the Instagram one... I'm not that talented at pleasing the IG gods. ;)

  5. I've tried my hand at fashion blogging just a little and number four! I can't for the life of me figure out how to do those Instagram shots. Mine always end up so funky.

  6. Amen! These are such great suggestions!


I think of every blog post as a conversation. I hope you'll join in and leave a comment so I'm not just talking to myself.
