Fashion is a way to show self-expression through clothing, shoes, makeup, hair, and accessories. Figuring out your own personal style can be challenging because the way you think you want to dress and the way you actually dress can be complete opposites. Transitioning through styles is something that is learned as time progresses. Media outlets definitely influence style because there’s a little something for everyone. With these five fashion bloggers, your style dilemmas may be put to rest. Here are the top five Black fashion bloggers to follow:
1. Claire Sulmers: The Fashion Bomb Daily
Fashion journalist, style blogger, and Editor-in-Chief, Claire Sulmers, created The Fashion Bomb Daily in August 2006. The Fashion Bomb provides multicultural fashion advice, which includes celebrity looks, looks for less, designer news, what to wear, and more.

Their goal is to be “the dedicated fashionista’s daily style obsession.” This clear-cut, simplistic site is one to bookmark.
3. Karen Blanchard: Where Did U Get That?
Londoner turned New Yorker, Karen Blanchard, gives a glimpse into her life, with her stylish outfits, inspiration DIYs, street style, and more. People constantly ask her where did she get what she’s wearing, so she figured she’d start a blog about it. Blanchard considers herself “a mish mash of both cities,” so expect New York style with a London twist or vice versa.
4. Folake Kuye Huntoon: StylePantry
Huntoon, a working mother of 3, updates StylePantry with lookbooks, campaigns, industry interviews, to name a few. She also provides viewers with her own daily looks, by sharing tips and secrets on where/how to shop bargains and vintage treasures. A pantry full of stylish thangs. Hard to believe that a mother of 3 has time to do all of this. Definitely shows dedication and persistence.
