Their constant streams of well put together outfits and enviable accessories have made them a one stop of inspiration for fashionable girls everywhere! Not only is fashion blogging a great way to establish a career, it’s one of the best creative outlets out there. If you love fashion and have some time on your hands, there’s no reason why you can’t have your own fashion blog! Here are a few easy steps you can follow to have your own blog in no time!
Setting up a blog online for free has never been easier than it is right now. The two most popular websites to set up your blog on are Blogger and WordPress. After you’ve created your page don’t forget to make it look pretty! There are literally hundreds of ways you can customize your blog and the better it looks the more likely it is that you will have visitors! As a rule of thumb, keep the layout clean and simple as it’s more pleasing to viewers that way.
Now comes the fun part, fashion! It’s important that you pick out outfits for your blog that you would want to see on other bloggers! There’s a niche out there for everyone! Channel your inner style whether it’s preppy, grungy, trendy etc. And remember, the more unique you are, the more likely you will get people visiting your page. There are a number of blogs out there where people tend to copy outfit ideas from one another and they are often looked down upon. Rather than copying, take inspiration from other blogs by taking note of themes you like in their clothing. Try to incorporate these themes into your outfits in a subtle way! Also remember that the details of your outfit are just as important as the main components. Pay attention to things like shoes, accessories, and makeup. These small details will also help your blog stand out!
Now comes the most important detail of your blog: the photos. A good photo has the power to make even a mediocre outfit look great and vice versa. Make sure you invest in the best camera you can get for your money and learn how to use it well. If you have someone who can take your photos, that’s great! But if not, you can also use a tripod or any kind of makeshift stand to take your own photos. When taking your photos pay attention to the lighting, the background, and the composition of your photo. Practice makes perfect, so the more photos you take the better you will become at taking them!
Now that you have fantastic photos ready to go remember to post them regularly! Even if it’s two times a week, make sure you have a schedule for your blog. This will get people coming back for more! With these few easy tips, you can become a fashion blogger in no time!
