FAB UP YOUR LIFE
5 fashion blogs we heart
New York Magazine's fashion blog is a site every savvy stylista should have bookmarked. Need-to-know fashion news? Check. Juicy style gossip? Check. In-depth runway reports? Check and check. Confession: We click “refresh” more times on their site than we check our phones or emails during Fashion Week, pretty much a sanctioned holiday at GL HQ.
Celebs decked out on the red carpet usually leave us drooling for their couture confections. Usually. Then there's the crash-and-burns outfits that have us flinching and whimpering, “What were they thinking?!” The Fug Girls, Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan, authors of Spoiled, answer that question with LOL-worthy snarkiness, spot-on “well, now that you mention it” comparisons and can't-ignore style tidbits. “We really wish you'd look into pants,” they suggest in lieu of leggings-only ensembles. Can't argue with that!
Since 15-year-old Tavi Gevinson started her Style Rookie tumblr four years ago, she's made quite the impression on the world of fashion and journalism, drawing fans of big-name fashionistas like Lady Gaga. If the groundbreaking Gaga adores her, you know you need to take note. Plus, we can't hide the fact that we've been crushing on her newly launched site The Rookie ever since they gave a nod to a throwback GL article. Blush!
Don't deny it. You know you're hoping for a street style photog to snap your cute-yet-effortless ensemble when you saunter to school. We feel the same way walking into the GL office, and we hope that famed photo-blogger Scott Schuman will be there, camera in hand. This jet-setting shutterbug has featured trendsetting outfits across the globe. Milan, Paris, Tokyo. Sigh. Scroll through his site for inspiration – just in case you run into him. Fingers crossed!
Fashion designer turned personal style blogger Jessica Quirk lives up to her online moniker. She shows off classic-meets-quirky numbers that make you rethink before repeating your outfit – no matter how many compliments you got the first time. One of our fave ensembles? Her Cat Scratch Fever get-up that she sported on Valentine's Day last year. Any girl who expertly and playfully pulls off a mixed feline print combo – without looking like a cat-crazed spinster – deserves our daily visits.
