We follow Fashion Bloggers to get inspiration for what to wear.
Nowadays, if you scroll through your social media feed, it’s most likely that you’ll see a photo of someone, maybe a friend or an acquaintance, who just seems to have those qualities of a supermodel. They know how to project and are very aware of their best angle, and everything becomes even better with their editing skills!
But actually, what makes them more appealing is how they carry themselves wearing any clothes, even the clothes that traditionally shouldn’t be put together. Yes, gone are the days where a dress and a pair of sneakers are poles apart. Even those coats and blazers that are supposed to be worn only in the corporate world or business-related activities, people wear them even on parties and as a casual wear!
There have been a lot of changes on how we wear clothes now. And below, I listed down 50 Australian fashion bloggers that might inspire you to be creative and to try different combinations of clothes as well.
