I don’t consider myself a fashionista, but I do love fashion. For my daily life-and-style fixes I turn to my list of excellent personal blogs (found on my my sidebar). These are the most satisfying and entertaining reads, as I know many of these fabulous women.
I like to keep pace with what’s trending in the Big Fashion Picture, too. I appreciate a site that gives me an international view, or a young person’s perspective, or a strictly inside-NYC-style connection. These sites trend toward the corporate, less personal perspective, but they’re useful for tracking the rag trade and for blog inspiration. Sometimes the inspiration means getting cranky, (like this article about the “two-purse” trend) but getting cranky can be inspiring too, right?
Here are seven sites I visit regularly for a shot of style:
- Racked. This site offers versions for several cities, and I read Racked NYC . They cover style as well as beauty, shopping, and upcoming sample sales. Slick and fast-moving, it’s a fun spot to light on once a week or so. Recent example: an article about the beauty of wearing the same thing every day.

- The New York Times Style section. Sometimes stuffy and often aimed at the wealthy Manhattan-ite, this site still offers great coverage of the major fashion shows, and of course there is Bill Cunningham.
|See the video here, of Bill’s latest style observations.|
- WhoWhatWear is an online style and culture magazine geared mostly (surprise!) to younger women. (At 60, I am older then most blog readers anyway, so let’s just stipulate to that.) Still, there’s great photography.
- The Guardian has a lively fashion section. I like their regular features, like “How I Get Ready”, and “Trends For All Ages.” Their posts have a cheeky London flavor. I enjoy articles like: “The Dad Sandal Is The Latest Thing!”

- The Cut is New York Magazine’s fashion blog and covers style, beauty, politics, and current events. Example: today’s article about women joining the Navy Seals.
- Style.com. “The online home of fashion,” closely associated with Vogue magazine. In fact, it’s changing its name to VogueRunway.com in a month or so. Extensive coverage of the fashion shows – all of them, all over the world – new designers, style icons, and a smattering of art and culture. I love the slide shows like this funky one: “The Best Street Style From Copenhagen Fashion Week.”

- The Woman’s Room. This site is different from the above – a friendly place for style, home decor, travel, food and more. The over-50 woman will feel very comfortable here, and it’s where I get blogging inspiration. I love the title, and the trousers, in this post: “Transitional Trouser Lust.”
