Every once in a while I stumble across a blogger so fabulous that I think I must be the last person on earth to have discovered them. I click to follow their incredible style on my Bloglovin feed, on Twitter, Instagram, etc. and I'm fully expecting them to have 100,000 Bloglovin followers and 75,000 Facebook likes; instead I'm surprised to find they have much more modest followings. These girls are producing some of the most incredibly stylish looks I've ever seen (rivalling the likes of Atlantic Pacific or Gary Pepper in terms of style), and are so deserving of hitting the big time in the bloggesphere.
I've chosen eight of these incredibly stylish fashion bloggers to share with you, and what makes me really happy is that they're all blog friends of mine - some I've known for practically the whole time Not Dressed As Lamb has been around (nearly three years), and some for just a few months. Nevertheless, none of them are strangers to me, nor me to them. They are all the loveliest girls who will reply to your emails and will respond to your Instagram comments, but at the same time creating a blog that's worthy of the pages of a fashion magazine (and 100k followers on Bloglovin).
Please take some time to check them all out: you'll see what I mean. Shout it from the rooftops about how fabulous they are...!
If ever a blogger looked like she's stepped off the pages of a magazine, it's Lauren. She is so earth-shatteringly cool with her honey-coloured waves, beautiful bone structure and effortless rock-chick vibe, everything just looks amazing on her. Her New York flair is really evident with the clever layering, mixed textures and fabulous heels (not sure I've ever seen her in flats before). A perfect mixture of vintage, designer and high-street, Carrie Bradshaw would be proud to raid Lauren's closet.
Jess is a recent discovery and I practically hyperventilated when I unearthed her blog. You will find a fair bit of plaid as the name suggests - but also sequins, delicate fabrics and a lot of fabulous denim. If there was one blogger whose wardrobe I would happily wear (exactly as she wears it) it would be hers, not changing a single thing. I love being influenced by great style, but Jess makes it so hard not to want to simply copy every. single. outfit. Forever.
I love a blogger with a bit of personality, and Blair's got it in spades. She may look like a model (she is), but she's also, in her words, an "undercover nerd", and never takes herself too seriously. She swings from hippy-cool to layered sportswear and back again, all the time looking like she really did just throw it on - beautifully.
I'm sure you're already thinking it: L - E - G - S. The owner of probably the best pins in the blogosphere, Sheree sure knows how to dress them. But whether they're covered up or very deservedly on show in shorts or a mini, they never detract from her ability to make everything look chic. Whether a vintage coat or the fiercest boots, she rocks everything.
Bloggers don't come much more funky than Brooke, and she creates some of the craziest-outfits-that-work that I see in my feed. She doesn't apologise for her petite frame by wearing 'cute' outfits - she is fierce with a capital 'F'. She layers like a pro and has a shoe collection I'd happily steal right now; her style always has something of the unexpected about it.
Victoria is basically grown up elegant chic with a twist. One of my oldest bloggy friends, she started her blog around the same time as mine - but she gets the Manhattan backgrounds where I get countryside and fields. I don't know anyone who does sportswear more elegantly than she does, and wait till you see her details shots of her amazing manicures and to-die-for accessories.
Daniella is a fashion goddess. I think she was born with the style gene; it simply oozes out of her no matter what she puts together. Her style is totally and utterly unique - I guarantee you won't find another blogger who dresses anything like her. At the moment she is owning the masculine chic look in men's boots, caps and oversized coats. She'll wear pyjamas as outdoor wear and kilts over jeans and make it all look so right. Her look is never too perfect, and that's what makes it all the more appealing.
I discovered Alicia a couple of months ago, and she reminded me that there are loads of incredibly stylish bloggers out there who've been blogging only a short while (barely more than six months in Alicia's case), waiting for us to find them and tell everyone about their fabulousness. Going through her archives, I couldn't find a single outfit I didn't love instantly. Oh and she must own the greatest lipstick collection ever. Whether in a black suit or jeans and sweater, those deep plum lips add a gorgeous finishing touch that make her look so polished.
I hope you love these gorgeous gals and their amazing style as much as me - let me know if I've introduced you to some new bloggers won't you...? I hope the eight I've featured all visit each other as well. I feel like a bit of a blogger matchmaker ;)
